Soon it will be seventy years since the infamous Washington flying saucer flap of 1952, an extraordinary affair in which UFOs buzzed the nation’s capital and eluded the best fighter jets of the time.
But were these UFOs of alien origin? I propose that these events were deliberate demonstrations ordered by President Harry Truman, and that the flying saucers were in fact advanced U.S. weapons under development since the end of World War II.
For those who are unfamiliar with this critically important happening in the history of UFOs, this article from the History Channel is a good backgrounder: https://www.history.com/news/ufos-washington-white-house-air-force-coverup
Anyway, as I was saying, my proposal is that the UFO flyovers were, in fact, demonstrations ordered by a skeptical president to prove the value of these platforms at a time when the military was asking for greater funding for the above-top-secret weapons.
After all, Truman pulled a similar stunt earlier in his career, when he ordered that the Flying Wing be flown over the White House to show its prowess. Unfortunately, the aircraft flyover was marred by engine trouble, and this damaged its credibility.
By contrast, the flying saucers were a swimming success, easily out-performing state-of-the-art jet fighters. And the rest can be found somewhere in the unwritten history of a modern UFO saga that began 75 years ago, when pilot Kenneth Arnold had his seminal sighting over Mount Rainier.
So, regarding NASA’s announcement that it will seriously investigate UFOs, perhaps it’s all about propulsion, not space aliens.
In other words, maybe the big brains at NASA don’t think it’s ET. Maybe they are just recognizing, FINALLY, that someone on planet Earth has achieved an astounding propulsion breakthrough.
And, oh, by the way, wouldn’t it be advantageous for the world’s premier space agency to get its hands on such a technology? A serious scientific study of UFOs could reveal clues about how this propulsion system works.
You know my take. I think the Tic Tac and other similar craft are above-top-secret U.S. military hardware. In other words, the Pentagon is the entity that has achieved said propulsion breakthrough. Of course, if such a breakthrough existed, you wouldn’t expect the Pentagon to share it with ANYONE, and that includes NASA. No one would have a “need to know,” not even Congress or the president.
But that’s just my weird, paranoid mind …
All this talk of the upcoming Congressional hearing regarding UFOs begs the question: Does Congress, or, for that matter, the public, have a so-called “need to know” when it comes to UFOs? https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/ufo-hearing-house-intelligence-committee-b2075745.html
I say that because I’m working on the assumption that the oval “tic tac” object that seemingly defied the laws of physics and other craft that have exhibited similar anomalous behavior are actually above-top-secret Pentagon programs, NOT space aliens.
So, then, assuming the UFOs are not ET but actually a breakaway, quantum leap technology possessed only by the U.S. military, why then would the Pentagon divulge this information to the public?
As far as I’m concerned, this secret goes all the way back to the end of World War II, when the United States either acquired the initial breakthrough from the Germans or developed it themselves. Either way, that’s when it all began. So, assuming this has been a platform possessed solely by the U.S. military all this time, by now it would be far more advanced than it was originally.
So, we’re talking about a 75-year conspiracy. Obviously a crazy, unprecedented situation. But it’s either ET or not.
Well, we agree about one thing: The UFOs are probably NOT an adversarial tech. However, he misses the most important, most logical takeaway, that the UFOs are probably a Pentagon technology.
This would mean To The Stars … Academy of Arts & Science and the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) have unwittingly exposed a Pentagon program.
Ok, this pilot said it out loud. His first thought was likely correct; the encounter with the Tic-Tac UFO was very likely part of the training exercise.
Frustrations are, understandably, boiling over regarding the government’s continued UFO secrecy.
However, there is a perfectly logical explanation for this: Revealing information about shapes and capabilities also could expose details about the propulsion systems of classified Pentagon programs.
Just saying … being so totally invested in the ET hypothesis can blind you to other possibilities …
The author takes quite a leap here, concluding that UFOs, and therefore space aliens, are “tampering” with U.S. nuclear missiles.
However, let me take a different approach. I propose that all of these encounters could have been the result of testing an above-top-secret antimissile system based on a field-propulsion platform that was invented in the 1940s and has remained shrouded from the public ever since then.
In at least one example, a flying-saucer-like vehicle was seen following a missile as it was being launched, shinning a bright light on the missile. I propose this light was possibly a high-intensity strobe that simulated gunfire or cannon fire. In other examples, UFOs were seen hovering over missile silos and then the launch controls were deactivated by some force. I propose that this was, again, our own people testing an above-top-secret antimissile system equipped with electromagnetic-pulse technology that temporarily interferes with electronic systems.
I know this sounds wild, but is it really any crazier than space aliens? We know something radical happened. These encounters have been documented. The sources are impeccable.
Rather than ET, however, we have to acknowledge the possibility that it was just the Pentagon all along, an idea that I tried to give flesh to in Chapter 11 of Flying Saucers.
After what’s been going on over the past five years, how in the world could anyone seeking to be the DoD inspector general not be familiar with the UFO issue? This is especially perplexing since the DoD Office of the Inspector General last year announced that it would be investigating the Pentagon’s handling of UFO encounters.
This is inconceivable. I mean, where has the guy been, on another planet? Ha, get it … on another planet … UFOs?!
At any rate, while this is typical, it does not inspire confidence that there will be any serious investigation.
Interesting wording ‘…incursions initially designated as UAP.’
Remember that big UFO presser the Pentagon held in Washington, D.C., way back in 1952, the one organized in response to public concerns about encounters between flying saucers and military jets?
Well, in the teeth of current public angst over UFOs, fueled largely by the recent experiences of U.S. Navy personnel, it is time for an encore. I sincerely hope this time the feds won’t blame it all on atmospheric temperature inversions, as they did in 1952 in efforts to explain away blips on radar that coincidentally lined up with eyewitness accounts of said UFOs.
My view is that these encounters are the result of training by an elite group within the U.S. military unknown to conventional forces. The military is either getting ready to use these weapons more regularly or already is using these weapons more regularly.
Either way, no matter how advanced a weapons system is, its successful use in actual military conflict is not guaranteed without proper training.

I was never on board with “the dream” simply because when you are so fully ensconced in the ET hypothesis, you’re never going to find the truth. People are so convinced of their own omniscience regarding black programs and that the Pentagon couldn’t possibly have a breakaway propulsion technology. Therefore, they fail to give any credence to the terrestrial hypothesis. They fail to investigate that possibility. And they do us all a terrible injustice.
Yes, of course the TTSA must be credited for outing those now-famous Navy videos documenting encounters with the tic-tac UFOs . However, at the same time, in my opinion, what they unwittingly did was expose a Pentagon program. In other words, the tic tacs and various other objects sighted by military pilots are, in fact, products of the U.S. military, training in parallel with white-world hardware. The Pentagon never intended for those videos to be made public, and it only did so after the videos were leaked.
The TTSA was always burdened by an overconfidence, an inherent arrogance owing to the fact that its founders embraced exclusively the ET hypothesis as an underlying principle.
So, now we know the truth: It was always just good entertainment. Meanwhile, the U.S. media continue their aimless sleepwalking in the murky and mysterious realm of UFOs, woefully unaware and incapable.
