How many times have we heard those words?
Man, this is theater of the absurd. He suggests the Russians or Chinese, and he totally overlooks the most obvious explanation: these are likely above-top-secret U.S. technologies and have been ever since the days of Kenneth Arnold and the Washington saucers of 1952.
This is idiotic.
Nice article about the War Zone’s investigation into the Oregon UFO.
If it was one of ours, this experiment would have yielded a bounty of data. The radar tapes, the radio communications with pilots.
The audio of the chatter between pilots and air traffic controllers is great! At one point, one of the controllers says the UFO apparently was in “stealth mode.” Does this suggest controllers were assuming it was U.S. military traffic?
Interesting that portions of the recordings were redacted.
I think the writer nailed it here:
Nevada is the site of the ultra-secret US Air Force testing facility, Area 51 (or more officially Groom Lake).
We know the US Air Force is fast-tracking development of its next generation stealth bomber, the B-21 “Raider”. We also know that absolutely everything about this aircraft — including its cost — is top secret.
And that’s probably one of the least secret projects being worked on at Area 51.
Posted on the War Zone blog. Nice job!
This seems really familiar.
The U-2 and SR-71 used to make for some great UFO reports from commercial airline pilots.
Am I missing something? The B-21 will replace the B-1. The B-1 is supersonic. Does this suggest the B-21 will be supersonic as well.
The article says: “A concept image of the Raider released in early 2016 shows a similar design to the B-2, suggesting the new bomber will be an upgraded B-2 design that “allows for the use of mature systems and existing technology,” according to an Air Force statement.”
What does it mean?
What exactly is Lavrov talking about when he says the U.S. is planning to militarize space?
They are being strangely cryptic.
Dude: The U.S. military is already there!
Did you think the Pentagon would cede the conquest of space to NASA or Elon Musk?
The most pivotal military theater in existence? … Let’s get serious.
I find this little excerpt particularly interesting: (from the linked article) “Lavrov’s speech also comes on the heels of key announcements from the United States: the plans to appoint a three-star vice-commander to ‘assist the commander of Air Force Space Command with his/her responsibility to organize, train and equip space forces’ “
By Jove, I think they are onto something here!
However, the writer is only half-way there. He correctly suggests people are falsely linking aliens to U.S. military aircraft. But he fails to suggest the sightings, or at least some of them, are likely the result of above-top-secret Pentagon platforms.
Sometimes it really is a flying saucer, not a Black Hawk helicopter.
But I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know.
It’s all in Flying Saucers!
From the article:
The abundance of secret prototypes plying American skies gives plenty of cover to government investigators and skeptical outsiders whose impulse is to dismiss possible evidence of alien life. “That said, there are those in government—including, clearly, some of the intelligence officials who worked in the AATIP—who are prepared to think the unthinkable, and say that some of these things might be extraterrestrial,” Pope said.
Nick, Nick, Nick: These are NOT prototypes, and they are NOT “experimental aircraft.” They are clearly operational platforms that have existed for some time.
From the article:
As the New York Times wrote in another piece published last weekend, the U.S. government has been searching for extraterrestrial life on and off for decades. While some information remains classified, so far as we know, we haven’t found anything particularly promising. A more likely explanation for the 2004 San Diego event could be that a government agency, deep within the United States military or the military of another nation, is simply working on new, mind-boggling technologies we’re not privy to yet. Though it may feel like a less exciting rationale for the weird event, there’s immense precedent. Much of the alleged alien activity of the past 80 years has ultimately been revealed as top secret government projects.
I vote U.S. military … we are the only nation with the ongoing, decades-long resources to field this sort of tech … oodles of black money going back to the 1960s … the biggest military budget in the world, by far … I would take it farther … we aren’t “working on” secret tech … we have perfected it. These aren’t so-called ‘experimental’ platforms; they are operational.
It’s nice to see support for an alternative to the damn ET hypothesis, which has dominated the conversation forever!
Let me read between the lines. I think what he’s saying is that the UFOs in question are likely from planet Earth. It’s all about Uncle Sam, and it always has been, from the Washington UFO encounters in ’52 right up to the present.
I guess the CNN on-air talent didn’t understand what he was suggesting?
