History’s ‘Project Blue Book’ comment on UFO cover-up

Ed and David: I saw, and agree with, your comments in this article about History’s upcoming “Project Blue Book”
New show explores if U.S. Air Force ‘hushed up’ UFO sightings in Project Blue Book

From the article:

“History Channel/Ed Araquel Executive producer and writer David O’Leary told a panel at Comic-Con this week, ‘On the subject of UFOs, part of the story is the cover-up, the lying, the misinformation campaign to control public perception.’”

The question is, what exactly was being covered up, evidence of ET or something else?

When are you guys FINALLY going to produce a program exploring the “terrestrial hypothesis” instead of the ET hypothesis?

It’s all in Flying Saucers.

Was solar observatory closure related to spying over Tularosa Basin?

Hmmm, this article raises many questions.

As the story suggests, perhaps the investigation relates to spying on top secret testing activities around the Tularosa Basin. Now, I’m not saying there are flying saucers over the Tularosa Basin, as was proposed in Flying Saucers … but who knows?

Opinion: President Truman ordered Washington flying saucers demo of ‘52

Re: History rehashed of the famous Washington saucers:

I propose that this was a demonstration. President Truman had similarly ordered a demonstration of the Flying Wing to prove its mettle, so the aircraft was flown over Washington in 1949. He could have also demanded a demonstration of the saucers, an above-top-secret U.S. military platform, perhaps to justify funding and quell doubts about their superior performance.

But I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know! It’s all in Flying Saucers.

‘Foo fighters’ were likely top-secret German platform

Thanks to for this retelling of those eerie foo fighters during World War II … my takeaway: They stopped appearing once the German army was defeated:

One hypothesis I favor: The Pentagon grabbed the technology along with the German brains behind it, later perfecting various vessels based on the breakthrough propulsion system.

But I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know! It’s all in Flying Saucers.



Dr. Steven Greer says U.S. ‘space force’ has existed since 1960s

Veteran UFO geek Dr. Steven Greer says a U.S. space force has been operating for 50 years and that there are “operational systems on satellites in space that can track and target and destroy any object in space — and those have been fully operational for many years …”




Popular Mechanics asks UFO question: there is obvious answer



Popular Mechanics decided to peg some UFO overview on World UFO Day …

The magazine asks a question for which there is an obvious answer. From the Popular Mechanics article:

“Another, more plausible theory is that a secret arm of the U.S. government achieved a technological breakthrough to the point where its craft are mistaken for the work of aliens. This technology, proponents explain, is so advanced the government is keeping it under wraps. Still, if Kenneth Arnold had seen top-secret military aircraft in the 1940s, why does the U.S. military not have anything like his “flying saucers” 70 years later?”


Answer: The U.S. military DOES have platforms now far more advanced than those earlier saucers.





#Nazi Flying Saucer controversy continues

But, of course the Germans invented flying saucers.

Again, the Germans did invent them!
