MR MASK's review of Citizen Hearing on Disclosure: Day 2, Pt. 1 April 30th 2013
First I would like to thank the ATS member FORMe2p00p0n
for posting links to the
youtube clips of the audio for the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. It is his links I am using to listen to what I am about to comment on.
This comes from the second day of the hearing, and it is about 2 hours worth of talking on what UFO researchers call the
Rendlesham Forest Incident.
The incident reportedly happened in the December of 1980 at RAF Woodbridge base (used by the U.S at that time) in Suffolk England. It is considered
(even by me) to be one of the largest and most interesting documented cases in UFO history, with more evidence and documentation then the Roswell
incident (as happening more recently). Earning it the often used title of "The Britain's Roswell".
The case goes as such- Sgt. John Burroughs says for three nights UFOs were seen over the base for three nights straight with multiple witnesses within
the base stating seeing them. These reports were documented by radar and eye witnesses.
But the big event was on 26 December Around 3 a.m, when strange lights were reported by a security patrol near the East Gate coming down from the sky
into the forest outside the gate. Witnesses on base thought it was a downed aircraft and went to investigate. On arrival Sgt. Jim Penniston said he
saw a metallic craft, with colored lights, dripping what looked like hot metal.
Its important to note that Penniston didn't mention this craft until years later and the initial report didn't contain his witnessed account.
Shortly after 4 a.m. local police were called to the scene but reported that the only lights they could see were those from the Orford Ness
lighthouse, some miles away on the coast. Many till this day say that is the answer to this entire event. A lighthouse being mistaken for a UFO.
The following morning- eyewitness and Deputy Base Commander Colonel Charles Halt went to the scene with servicemen. They took readings with radiation
detectors and detected higher levels of radiation than should be present. These readings are highly disputed.
During this reading, Holt saw lights across the field (towards the lighthouse). And Halt says he saw starlike lights in the sky beaming lights to the
ground. He recorded his reaction on a voice recorder.
The first real piece of public evidence was a memorandum to the Ministry of Defence. Known as the "Halt memo", this was made available publicly in
the United States under the US Freedom of Information Act in 1983.
It can be read in entirety here.
The Halt Memo
Over time more witnesses came forward. They are Col. Halt by Fred A. Buran, 81st Security Police Squadron, Airman First Class John Burroughs, 81st LE,
Airman Edward N. Cabansag, 81st Security Police Squadron, Master-Sergeant J. D. Chandler, 81st Security Police Squadron and Staff-Sergeant Jim
Penniston, 81st Security Police Squadron. Colonel Ted Conrad.
Their testimonies are also in the public domain.
There was a lot more to the details. Like some heard a woman screaming. Reports of animals freaking out. Dates recorded wrongly (causing
investigations to go screwy). And what I find interesting is that-
Penniston said the"craft he encountered had come from our future, and was occupied by time travelers, not extraterrestrials.".
And Penniston showed his diary entry (that he claimed he was writing in during the event in real time) for that night on a TV interview...and the date
And Colonel Ted Conrad publicly stated in 2010- "We saw nothing that resembled Lieutenant Colonel Halt's descriptions either in the sky or on the
ground." and that "We had people in position to validate Halt's narrative, but none of them could."
There is lots more to this case, I suggest reading up on it.
ANYWAYS- This case has been done to death in UFO documentaries, Discovery Channel and History Channel shows, books, magazines, radio shows, podcasts
etc. And many of the witnesses are selling their books on it.
Each witness told his account. As they always do on every show they can get on. Each one stated they believe it's a cover up by both governments and
that documents are being held. They asked the Ex Congress men what to do!
One said- "Well, uh, you should keep trying. Yknow, keep pushing until they give you those documents"
Another said something along the lines of- "wow...that's weird stuff. I don't know what to think about that."
Another said- "I want to be very careful how I word this. But if this is true...there is a cover up."
That's pretty much it...
2 hours to hear the same crap told a million times. And people getting paid $20,000 to say "wow, that's weird, good luck!".
