An embodiment of the concept of the "shadow government" in conspiracy theory lore, the Syndicate comprised covertly allied, influential
government officials and businessmen. The Syndicate, operating at the highest levels of power, concealed from the world a program by an unidentified
extraterrestrial species to colonize and repopulate the planet, as well as their own plans and stake in that future, which they held to be
Any ATS dork or nerd knows immediately that, of course, I'm referring to "The Syndicate," from the Fox television series The X-Files. Recently, on
ATS there has been several discussions and threads on "Disclosure." Obviously, all of us want a "telling of the truth" from our government; a bare
it all session revealing they have known about UFO/ET visitation and that they withheld the truth because they feared the public response. Ok, I used
to hope for that too, but the more I delve into "reality" the more I know that will never happen. No White House Lawn Landing for ET.
What I have come to understand is that such a decision exceeds the singularity authority of any one person, agency, government, or country. This
includes the POTUS. I used to think it would be great to be President of the United States; I would take off on Air Force 1 and order them to take me
to Area 51. I'd learn a bunch of really cool things and have access to everything. Well, we know that's not the case. In fact, besides being briefed
on everyday security concerns, the POTUS has very little "need to know" when it comes to a variety of different topics. In addition to "Plausible
Deniability," why would a person who may only be president for 4 meager years be briefed on the nation's Deepest & Darkest secrets? NO WAY.
After talking with a lot of ATS members, learning to trust their experience and knowledge, and having friends of mine that are employed by various
government defense contractors, I also come to understand that probably ANY evidence, or hardware of UFO/ET visitation, crashes, etc has not been
directly in the hands of the U.S. government for some time, but locked away DEEPand buried in the custody of these private contractors. We're talking
DEEP! Ben Rich also believed this. Private corporations are not subject to Freedom of Information Requests, like our governmental agencies are. They
don't have to reveal anything. They don't have to tell you anything they don't want to. Isn't that the safest place? Yes, we have learned a lot by
sifting through thousands of government and military documents available via FOIA requests. We've learned a wealth of information from these
I think the most significant information gained from these FOIA requests has been:
-There has been a conspiracy to mislead the public regarding UFOs
-UFOs have presented a clear and present danger to our National Security
-All major governmental agencies have investigated UFOs and/or developed doctrine on how to deal with UFOs, including CIA, DIA, NSA, FBI, and the
-The USAF lied when it stated it stopped investigating UFO activity
But regardless, the most we've learned, I think, is that a UFO conspiracy exists, immaterial as to the Why? I don't really believe we've found our
"smoking gun" and I don't think we're going to using official channels. If there was a "smoking gun" that the government thought was credible in
a document that could be request and accessed by the general public, they would simply redact the document or destroy it all together. I believe
that's what happened with the missing Roswell documents. The GAO concluded that all records pertaining to the Roswell incident had been
So, getting back to the original point of the thread: "The Syndicate." I believe there are certain individuals and/or corporations, just like many
of you, who comprise a Shadow Government. A certain privileged few, who by birth or acquisition of wealth, are really in charge of "Disclosure," and
more importantly, why we, the public will never know the truth. Call them what you will, but it’s their "finger on the button." I got thinking
about people who might belong to such a conspiracy and the reasons why. Here's what I was thinking. Enjoy! Please feel free to add to this thread.
