The bill was passed and within it is the Gillibrand Amendment which ensured that a new department would be formed for the purpose of UFO investigation. UFOs (or UAP to use the new stigma-free term) are acknowledged to exist so now we can move on to more pressing questions.
I doubt they’ve ever completely ceased to investigate since WWII’s Foo Fighters and Projects Grudge, Sign, and Blue Book which ran from 1947 to 1969. Over the decades projects have been launched and departments have been formed with the attention of uncovering the truth about UFOs.
They have concluded and the departments closed as funding priorities changed or perhaps when they had served their purpose which was to delay and obfuscate for another generation.
More recently we’ve seen the revelations about AAWSAP (Advanced Aerospace Weapon Systems Applications Program) (otherwise know as AATIP – Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program).
In light of all that has slipped in or has been placed into the public domain there is just too much data to hide now. Soon another department soon to be formed and it will either cease the narrative and explain away the phenomena or expand upon what’s been revealed recently.
The UFO Investigation Must Move On
Military technology has advanced to the point that sophisticated radar and IR data can be added to the many eyewitness accounts. The mood has changed from blanket denial to “OK, they exist. Gather data and log it“.
Time to turn off the X-Files theme music and get on with the job of answering these and other questions:
- Who, or what, is operating them?
- Where do they come from?
- How do they fly?
- What’s their power source?
- Are they a threat?
- What else can we learn from them?
Those tic-tac UFOs seen during the Nimitz incidents in 2004 and other similar encounters displayed these and other characteristics:
- No heat signature
- No aerodynamic flying surfaces
- No discernible means of propulsion (jet, prop, or rocket)
- Transmedium travel (flying into and out of the ocean)
- Near immediate acceleration to high speed
- Near immediate change of direction at high speed
Many will be thinking (and hoping) that they’re advanced Chinese drones because one of the alternative explanations is still too unpalatable, and yet the idea of that they are of non-human origin has not only been the matter of speculation but is the palusible theory that finds favour with many who work (or worked) in this field.
I think we are approaching a time when several frontiers of science and human experience are beginning to intersect; quantum physics, consciousness, UFOs, UAP, blue and other coloured orbs, paranormal activity, and non-human intelligences.
The UFO Stigma Clings On
I first posted a shortened version of this post on my LinkedIn profile and it had 70 views within less than 24 hours but not a single comment or reaction.
People are still wary of being associated with this subject, particularly if any interest in it might reflect on their profession or career. It still has a lot of stigma attached to it despite the seriousness with which it is now treated by the US Defense Department if nowhere else.
Meanwile, followers of #UFOtwitter and #UAPtwitter are well versed in the latest development. Some of the interviews conducted with former members of the CIA or ex military personnel are startling in their content.
Some of the men (and a few women) who have retired or left the service of the country with their reputation intact are willing to tell all they can up to the point of what may be a breach of their NDAs.
Your Own UFO Investigation
What have they’ve been hiding for 80 years? Well, you have to go down that rabbit hole yourself. If you do, prepare to have your flabber well and truly gasted. It will challenge everything you know and believe.
I first took a peek through the door in the early 1970s. Nearly 50 years later much has changed and as more people involved in the cover-ups and the cycle of denial, deceit, and misinformation come forward to tell their story the genie is well and truly out of the bottle.
The next generation will live in interesting times.
