Don’t believe in UFOs? Neither do I!
Without provable facts to back it up,
“belief” is hardly more than a frivolously flighty factoid.

What we’re concerned with here are facts.
Quoting (from p.p. 74-75, March-April, 2011, “FATE” magazine) well-known long-time “anomalist” researcher, Jerome Clark -- in his rebuttal to Jacques Vallee’s ill-informed contentions that such “wonders” are merely [paraphrasing] “all just strange long-standing weirdness.” [Emphasis added.]:
…“actual UFOs [are] those with which unexplainable traces and instrumented observations are linked…”
“Very well-documented hard-evidence cases have long lent plausibility to the notion that the core UFO phenomenon is the physical product of somebody else’s advanced technology. Moreover, in our time astronomers discover ever more extrasolar planets and discuss openly the prospect of a densely populated galaxy. One may reasonably deduce that if those much-vaunted potential millions of civilizations are out there, visitations from ETs are not just possible but predictable.”

in regards to the subject of UFOs: “Absence
of evidence is NOT evidence of

Statistically solid data involving definite patterns gleaned from the 3,000+ cases are presented. A close look at the most significant, well-documented, high strangeness events include witness testimony, photographs, on-site investigation and laboratory analysis of the resulting traces and residue found at the landing site. Included is a report on an area currently under investigation with activity has taken place over the past eight years. These sightings include close visual, photographic, video and physical evidence cases. Also presented is a detailed report on a project initiated 36 years ago by Dr. J.

It really is no accident that, for the most part, nowdays when UFO sightings are reported in the media they almost always include ridiculing “giggle factor” comments near the end of the article. Don’t take my word for that though. The CIA-funded “Robertson Panel” in 1952, after studying "the UFO problem”, recommeded the "debunking" of all UFO sightings reports. The Robertson Panel recommendations resulted in much media coverage of UFO sightings ending up ridiculing people who reported seeing UFOs. Thus was born the “giggle factor” that persists -- and is encouraged -- to this very day.
Now how are these facts known? Via the Freedom Of Information Act. FOIA requests have uncovered the truth.

“I was astonished by the care and precision of Leslie Kean’s research in this terrific book. Her analysis is carefully reasoned and to the point; her craftsmanship in organization and writing are superb. Her expose' raises important questions: Why does the US government create public distrust by neglecting this important topic? Why do its agencies avoid investigating cases of interference with flight operations and instead issue absurd cover-up stories? This book is ultimately an appeal to all scholars for an "extraordinary investigation of an extraordinary phenomenon.”
—Rudy Schild, Ph.D., Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
“Like me, Leslie Kean is an agnostic on the issue of UFOs. Her book is a fine piece of journalism - not about beliefs, but about facts. Kean presents the most accurate, most credible reports on UFO's you will ever find. She has fought long and hard to discover the facts and let the chips fall where they may. She may not have the final smoking gun, but I smell the gunpowder.”
—Miles O'Brien, former CNN space/science correspondent
“I find explanations offered by UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists to be implausible, but I also have little patience with "deniers" who ridicule credible reports. Leslie Kean has found a thoughtful path between extreme views, documenting the UFO mystery with intelligence and insight. She makes a strong case for U.S. participation in official, international UFO investigations and for public dissemination of the results. The fascinating first-hand accounts make this a thought-provoking book, even for those of us who don’t know much about UFOs.”
—Neal Lane, Ph.D., Rice University; former Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
“If you don't know much about UFOs, you must read this book. If you think that UFO reports are nonsense, this book will disabuse you of that notion. Leslie Kean's UFOs informs readers at every level of knowledge and belief. It could, and should, become the "tipping point" that leads to public acceptance of the reality of UFOs and all of its implications.”
—Don Donderi, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, McGill University (Ret.)
“In an area of study where there aren’t many, this is a serious book. It is credible, clear, and compelling, without any farfetched jumps in logic and assumption. Its credibility begins on the first page with John Podesta and continues with case studies of extraordinary quality to the very end. Leslie Kean not only makes the case for, but calls for, a whole new concrete and realistic perspective on UFOs that has more honesty and integrity than any other that I have read. This is a book for anyone with an open mind.”
—John L. Petersen, Founder & President of The Arlington Institute
“In these pages we are confronted head-on by the UFO phenomenon as revealed firsthand by highly credible government officials and military aviation experts. Their credibility and integrity cannot be questioned, and their firsthand observations cannot be ignored. Leslie Kean provides a challenging analysis and she writes with penetrating depth and insight. The revelations in this book constitute a watershed event in lifting the taboo against rational discourse about this controversial subject.”
—Harold E. Puthoff, Ph.D., Director of The Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin
“When I started reading Leslie Kean’s UFOs, I found it very difficult to stop. This is an unprecedented assessment of what may be the greatest challenge ever presented to mankind. In an outstanding piece of investigative journalism, Kean provides a well-written and convincing appeal for change in dealing with a phenomenon that can no longer be ignored.”
—Jean-Claude Ribes, Ph.D., Paris Observatory (Ret.)
“For anyone who questions why - after more than fifty years of denial, ridicule, and dismissal - many scientists, academics, political figures, and military personnel still insist that the subject of UFOs should be taken seriously, this book provides the answer. Leslie Kean offers compelling documentation that physical objects, with flight characteristics not yet achievable by known technology, are being routinely reported in our skies. They represent a mystery that needs to be solved.”
—Stuart Appelle, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Science and Mathematics, State University of New York, Brockport
"Leslie Kean’s astonishing book is the finest piece of investigative journalism ever written on this subject. She has an incomparable ability to ‘give voice’ to a constituency of exceptionally qualified and unbiased first-hand observers. They are not from the fringe, not groupies, and not delusional. Rather, they are high-level military, intelligence, aerospace, and government officials who speak with authority while providing reports that document actual, physical craft. Kean’s book represents the first important step toward a new U.S. government openness about UFOs. It brings forward a reality otherwise buried for far too long inside official mystery, and elevates the discourse above that of small-minded public discussions."
—Christopher C. Green, MD, Ph.D., Harper University Hospital, Wayne State University School of Medicine

Also be sure to read this article, which was published on June 6, 2006, in the Southeast Missourian newspaper, about “UFO expert”, Dr. Harley Rutledge, Ph.D., in notice of his demise. He was the head of the Physics Dept. at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, MO. --- (Important Note: The article states that, “His fame as a passionate investigator of the unexplained led him to be a featured expert on CNN and quoted in a Time-Life book on UFOs and an astrology textbook.” In a later addition of the newspaper they printed a correction note that word “astrology” should have, of course, been “astronomy.”) --- Here's the text of a letter of response I received (after a query to see if he would give a UFO talk in the St. Louis area.) from Dr. Rutledge.:
July 7, 1997
I am reluctant to inform you that I discontinued my UFO presentations several years ago, though I did contemplate a presentation at the 34th National UFO Convention in Springfield, Ohio, on September 6, 1997. I was offered a nice sum of money but I declined because my wife wants to be in Washington, D.C. for several weeks where two of our three grandsons live; the other in Boulder, CO.
I suspect most of the world will focus their eyes (via TV) on the MARS device. It should sustain our interest for a long, long time.
Sincerely,[signed] Harley Rutledge
Dr. Rutledge wrote the book, Project Identification: The First Scientitific Field Study of UFO Phenomena. (Unfortunately, the book is long out of print. I have a hardcover copy, which I bought at a book fair for less than $10. If your lucky enough to find a copy, then grab it while you can!) The book came about as a result of Rutledge's -- and his team of gradute and undergradute students from SEMO -- 10-year investigation of a major flap, of UFO sightings in southeast Missouri. --- By the way, in his book, Dr. Rutledge mentioned that both he and his family had close-encounter UFO sightings right in Cape Giradeau: near his home and also on the university campus!
That UFO flap began, and was centered around, the Piedmont, Missouri area. The follow-on wave of UFO sightings proceeded eastward across the U.S., but continued during that entire decade in southeast Missouri area. It was also known as “THE BRUSHY CREEK UFO SCARE” in reference to the Piedmont, Missouri, UFO flap. A excellent article about it can be read via this URL: http://members.tripod.com/~task_2/Wave-Brushyscare.htm

There are quite a few “high strangeness” UFO case reports that defy logic and explanation. In these cases, and all-things UFO, it is wise to keep in mind noted author Arthur C. Clarke’s (“2001: A Space Odyssey”; he’s also the person who first proposed geosynchronous-orbit communications satellites) “Three Laws”:
(1) “When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right; when he states that something is impossible, he is probably wrong.”
(2) “The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”
(3) “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

The Orb Phenomenon
by Dr. Bruce Maccabee, Ph.D.
CONCLUSION: ORBS OR DUST
"Orb Lore" has developed over the last few years
about the nature of these strange orb images,
with some people attributing them to
"creatures" or intelligent entities
from some other reality
that are penetrating our reality.
This interpretation has resulted from
the failure of the initial "orbists"
to find reasonable explanations for the images.
Of course, I cannot state positively that
every anomalous image of the orb type considered here
(non-self-luminous so that nothing was seen before or after
the flash photo was taken and the image is
a small, "transparent" circle or disc or an elongated "tube")
was caused by a
reflection of light from a tiny object close to the camera.
However, it seems to be a "good guess" that many or most of them are.
(Note: the above discussion does not apply to
self-luminous orbs seen without the aid of a flash,
light beam or any source
There are such orbs... example:
see the Oregon Red Ball report.)

Kaufman talks with Fresh Air's Dave Davies about the ongoing search for life in the universe — from current research, to the unknowns in the field.
"There are undoubtedly billions or trillions of planets out there and there are most likely billions in the Milky Way itself — just one of billions of galaxies," Kaufman says. "There are billions of planets in habitable zones in relation to their stars that would allow for water to be liquid and for other important conditions for life." - http://www.npr.org/2011/04/04/135040012/the-high-probability-of-finding-life-beyond-earth
“Peter Davenport Believes in UFOs” - The respected rural researcher claims the government does too. - (Wednesday, Feb 9 2011 - By Ellis E. Conklin - Seattle Weekly) - Davenport is the longtime director of the National UFO Reporting Center, an independently operated 24-hour hotline for UFO sightings, which he's run in Washington since 1994. Each year he posts on his website (ufocenter.com) as many as 5,000 sightings, taping callers and making written reports. He figures he has 70,000 sightings on file….
On April 21, 1997, five weeks after the Phoenix Lights, a special agent in the FBI's New York office named Steve Bongardt called and left Davenport a message. "He said, 'We know who you are. We have seen [the sightings] you have posted on your website and we have found them very interesting, and we would like to meet you.'"
Davenport says he met with two agents a month later, for four hours, at a home in Rutherford, N.J. "[Bongardt] said UFOs are for real," Davenport remembers. "Number two, he said, 'We know what UFOs are and what they appear to be, namely sophisticated craft under intelligent control,' and number three, 'The people in government are a bit worried.' I was stunned to silence."
Two weeks ago, on January 27, Bongardt e-mailed Seattle Weekly to say that he could confirm only that he was and remains a special agent with the FBI, and that he and the other agent(s), whose names cannot be disclosed, did meet with Davenport in May 1997. Bongardt would not divulge anything further.
Davenport has had no correspondence since that meeting with either agent… - http://www.seattleweekly.com/2011-02-09/news/peter-davenport-believes-in-ufos/

attempt to delve into the
threat of Christian fundamentalism

“Televangelist Pat Robertson
made headlines in 1997
for claiming that people like us
readers of UFO Magazine
who are interested in UFOs --
should be stoned to death.”
The gist of Peter Robbins' conclusions
is quoted on the column's jump page (68):
“Fundamentalist thinkers are by nature
convinced that their views and beliefs
are the correct and true ones,” he said.
“They leave no room for doubt
in their convictions and are not open
to any sort of modulation in their thinking.
When applied to the sweeping questions
we find ourselves facing in UFO studies,
this kind of inflexibility can be
when religious fundamentalist thinking is involved,
it has the potential to be positively dangerous.”

The FBI Deputizes Business
By Matthew Rothschild - (February 7, 2008)
Today, more than 23,000 representatives of private industry
are working quietly with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.
The members of this rapidly growing group,
receive secret warnings of terrorist threats before the public does --
and, at least on one occasion, before elected officials.
In return, they provide information to the government, which alarms the ACLU.
But there may be more to it than that.

There’s a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says - (May 25, 2011 - by Spencer Ackerman - Wired) - You may think you understand how the Patriot Act allows the government to spy on its citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) says it’s worse than you’ve heard.
Congress is set to reauthorize three controversial provisions of the surveillance law as early as Thursday. But Wyden says that what Congress will renew is a mere fig leaf for a far broader legal interpretation of the Patriot Act that the government keeps to itself — entirely in secret. Worse, there are hints that the government uses this secret interpretation to gather what one Patriot-watcher calls a “dragnet” for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.
“We’re getting to a gap between what the public thinks the law says and what the American government secretly thinks the law says,” Wyden tells Danger Room in an interview in his Senate office. “When you’ve got that kind of a gap, you’re going to have a problem on your hands.”

UFO Sighted Near Nuclear Missiles During October 2010 Launch System Disruption - (June 19, 2011 - By Robert Hastings -
- October 23, 2010, F.E. Warren Air Force Base,
in Cheyenne, Wyoming, temporarily lost the ability to communicate with 50 of
its Minuteman III nuclear missiles. The five Missile Alert Facilities
responsible for launching those ICBMs in time of war—Alpha through Echo,
comprising the 319th Strategic Missile Squadron—would have been unable to do so
during the period of the disruption.
This dramatic story was leaked to Mark Ambinder, a contributing editor at The Atlantic, which published it three days later.1 The Air Force then quickly acknowledged the problem, saying that a back-up system could have launched the missiles and claiming that the breakdown had lasted a mere 59 minutes.
However, the latter statement was untrue, according to two missile technicians stationed at F.E. Warren, who say that the communications problem, while intermittent, actually persisted over several hours.
Significantly, these same individuals report multiple sightings by “numerous [Air Force] teams” of an enormous cigar-shaped craft maneuvering high above the missile field on the day of the disruption, as well as the following day. The huge UFO was described as appearing similar to a World War I German Zeppelin, but had no passenger gondola or advertising on its hull, as would a commercial blimp. - http://www.theufochronicles.com/2011/06/huge-ufo-sighted-near-nuclear-missiles_19.html

Millions of Archived Films and TV Footage Now Accessible to All - ScienceDaily (June 21, 2011) — More than 13 million film, television and radio records are now available thanks to a pioneering new search engine developed by Royal Holloway, University of London and the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC).
The BUFVC federated search environment is an innovative 'all-in-one' search engine that allows users to access nine online databases, containing records, relating to film, television and radio content.
Increasing quantities of archive film, television and radio content are available, but the content is usually delivered as stand-alone collections, with users needing to know where to look before they begin their research. This new search environment will allow researchers to browse all collections using the one search engine and provides results in an easy-to-view format with clean design and user-friendly icons.

UFO Researcher Claims Air Force Not Revealing Truth About Communication Outage At F.E. Warren Missile Site - (July 7, 2011 - by Lee Speigel - AOL News) - In Washington last September, six former Air Force officers and a former enlisted man stepped forward to say that they'd seen or had been directly involved with UFO sightings at nuclear missile sites.
These sightings began at the dawn of the Cold War and continued through the 1970s.
At this press conference, organized by UFO researcher Robert Hastings, these men told the media that they were encouraged not to speak of these sightings by their superiors, and in some cases, were required to sign secrecy oaths.
Now, Hastings is saying three more witnesses are speaking to him about a more recent UFO sighting -- and it revolves around a serious communications scare at F. E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming last October, when the military acknowledged that it had lost contact with 50 of its nuclear Minuteman III missiles.
"We've never had something as big as this happen," said a military officer who had been briefed on the event, according to the The Atlantic. "We can deal with maybe 5, 6 or 7 at a time, but we've never lost complete command and control and functionality of 50 ICBMs." - http://mcaf.ee/sjh5w

He is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research. Hynek acted as scientific adviser to UFO studies undertaken by the U.S. Air Force under three consecutive names: Project Sign (1947-1949), Project Grudge (1949-1952), and Project Blue Book (1952 to 1969). For decades afterwards, he conducted his own independent UFO research, and is widely considered the father of the concept of scientific analysis of both reports and, especially, trace evidence purportedly left by UFOs.

UFO - Stanton T. Friedman IS Real! - (9-1/2 min. prelude - YouTube audio/video)
- Stanton T. Friedman received BSc and MSc degrees in
physics from the University of Chicago in 1955 and 1956. He was employed for 14
years as a nuclear physicist for such companies as GE, GM, Westinghouse, TRW
Systems, Aerojet General Nucleonics, and McDonnell Douglas on such advanced,
classified, eventually cancelled, projects as nuclear aircraft, fission and
fusion rockets, and nuclear powerplants for space.
Since 1967 he has lectured on the topic "Flying Saucers ARE Real!" at more than 600 colleges and over 100 professional groups in 50 states, 9 provinces, 13 other countries. He has published more than 80 UFO papers and appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs. He is the original civilian investigator of the Roswell Incident and co-authored "Crash at Corona: The Definitive Study of the Roswell Incident." TOP SECRET/MAJIC, his explosive book about the Majestic 12 group established in 1947 to deal with crashed saucers, was published in 1996 and is in its 6th printing. ….
He has provided written testimony to Congressional Hearings, appeared twice at the UN, and been a pioneer in many aspects of Ufology...
Stanton Friedman takes a clear-cut unambiguous stand that SOME UFOs are alien spacecraft, that the subject of flying saucers represents a Cosmic Watergate, that none of the anti-UFO arguments made by a variety of noisy negativists stand up to careful scrutiny, and that we are dealing with the biggest story of the past millennium: visits to Planet Earth by alien spacecraft and the successful coverup by governments of the best data: alien wreckage and bodies recovered in New Mexico, for 56 years. He has spent many weeks at a total of 20 document archives. Stan has successfully taken on many critics of flying saucers, Roswell, Majestic 12, including winning a debate at Oxford University. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPOdsnWV1nI

InfraGard is a private non-profit organization serving as a public-private partnership between U.S. businesses and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The organization describes itself as an information sharing and analysis effort serving the interests and combining the knowledge base of a wide range of members. InfraGard states they are an association of businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States.
Concerned about human rights, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) warned that there "is evidence that InfraGard may be closer to a corporate TIPS program, turning private-sector corporations — some of which may be in a position to observe the activities of millions of individual customers — into surrogate eyes and ears for the FBI". As of September, 2010, the organization reported membership at over 40,000 (including FBI).

National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP)
(December 15, 2010, update by Francis L. Ridge, NICAP Site Coordinator.):
This day marks the 13th year anniversary of the NICAP web site. In the next week we will present, in time-release fashion, a number of releases and special reports commemorating those years and the plans for the years ahead.
The National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) was formed 54 years ago in 1956 and flourished through about 1970, and, as an organization with field investigators and consultants, declined gradually thereafter. For a more detailed story about NICAP please check Richard Hall. What we have today, many years later, is the existence of the NICAP web site, a tremendous repository of the evidence collected by NICAP and other sources to continue the goal of public information.
Five years ago, in 2005,
delineated the beginning of a major project that to this day probably stands as
the most important tool on the NICAP website: The UFO Chronologies. And in 2009 we began the second
major project, the new RADCAT, which
is the re-issue and processing of all the radar cases in the Blue Book files
and elsewhere. I am very pleased to announce the beginning of a new major
project, AVCAT (Aviation Catalog),
to update directories on old cases and create AVCAT dirs for new ones regarding
sightings of UFOs from aircraft.
With the 13th anniversary we are proud to announce the addition of three new books to the online books page. - http://www.nicap.org
New type of aircraft flies like a UFO - (June 22, 2011 - by Emma Woollacott - TGDaily) - Austrian research firm IAT21 has unveiled a radically new type of aircraft that could render the helicopter obsolete.
D-Dalus can 'approach as gently and silently as a hot air balloon', say its developers, hover, rotate in any direction and fly as fast as a jet.
Unlike VTOL aircraft or helicopters, it can easily cope with poor weather or the lurching deck of a ship.
The propulsion system consists essentially of four sets of contra-rotating disks, each driven at 2,200 rpm by a conventional aero-engine. The disks are surrounded by blades whose angle of attack can be altered using servos, allowing thrust in any direction.
This allows it to launch vertically, hover in a fixed position in the air and travel or rotate in any direction. It can even 'glue' itself to the deck of a ship by thrusting upwards.
Apparently, it's easier to fly than a helicopter, with a simple joystick control, and can be repaired by your average car mechanic. because there are no external moving parts such as rotor blades, it has 360 degree vision. A sense-and avoid system means it can fly through small spaces or hover right next to a rock face or wall.
Initially, the designers say they expect the propulsion system to be used for robot drones in search and rescue missions and the like.
But, they add, in trials it looks as if larger versions are actually more efficient and less complex, meaning there's no reason why it couldn't be used in passenger aircraft.
They also envisage it being used as a hovering platform to load and unload ships.
Right now, the biggest version can only lift a payload of 70kg, although IAT21 is now working with the UK's Cranfield University on a larger, more powerful version. - http://www.tgdaily.com/hardware-features/56778-new-type-of-aircraft-flies-like-a-ufo
UFO Fleet Guadalajara Mexico - (1 min. - YouTube audio/video) - On June 10, 2004, the city of Guadalajara witnessed undoubtely the most spectacular UFO fleet sighting in known history. The sky over the city became filled with hundreds of sphere-shaped objects grouped together in a massive formation and all moving in unison - like a spectacle straight from a major Hollywood Sci-Fi film. The number of luminous spheres was in the hundreds, and among them, in a certain spot within the formation was a much bigger craft, disc-shaped, which might have been controlling the whole armada. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKzzsM-__sg&feature=player_embedded

Air Force UFO Rules Vanish After Huffington Post Inquiry - (Oct. 19, 2011 - by Lee Speigel - The Huffington Post) - The military deleted a passage about unidentified flying objects from a 2008 Air Force personnel manual just days after The Huffington Post asked Pentagon officials about the purpose of the UFO section.
Before the recent revisions, the document -- Air Force Instruction 10-206 -- advised pilots, radar operators and other Air Force personnel on what to do when they encountered any unknown airborne objects. Now in the 2011 version, the reference to UFOs -- which simply means "unidentified flying objects," not necessarily spaceships with little green men -- has been eliminated.
What makes this so intriguing is that the U.S. government officially stopped investigating UFOs in 1969 with the termination of the Air Force's Project Blue Book.

Richard Dolan: UFOs & The Secret Space Program - (1-hr. & 45-min. - YouTube audio/video) - Topic: Worlds Above and Below: How A Secret Civilization Broke Away From Our Own
One thing that a study of the UFO makes abundantly clear: someone is operating technology that is not supposed to exist, and yet it does. Silent craft, for example, that can instantly accelerate, many of which are said to be of non-human origin, but others which are argued to be of classified manufacture. Is there a clandestine infrastructure that has made significant breakthroughs, but which has kept them secret from the rest of us? Richard Dolan answers in the affirmative. He argues that the UFO phenomenon is infinitely more complex than many have previously suggested, and that human and non-human groups are behind what we call UFOs. Within the human, classified part, breakthroughs have leap-frogged over each other to produce a society with substantially more advanced scientific, technological, and cosmological ideas -- a society that can accurately be called a "breakaway civilization." This covert civilization has continued to interact with our own "official" society, but at the same time appears to have interactions or encounters with one or more of the non-human groups that are here on Planet Earth. The result is a clandestine cold war, very possibly with multiple human and non-human factions. 03 Apr 2011 facebook.com (info blog), keyholepublishing.com
Black budget projects, The World after disclosure, National security state, Breakaway civilization.
Dolan was born in Brooklyn, New York, studied
at Alfred University and Oxford University, a Rhodes scholarship finalist, and completed his graduate work in history at the University of Rochester.
Prior to his interest in UFOs, Dolan studied U.S. Cold War strategy,
Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy.
In 2000, he published UFOs and the National Security State: An Unclassified History, 1941-1973 (republished in 2002 with the subtitle Chronology of a Cover-Up, 1941-1973). This 500-page history provides clear detail on the major UFO cases of the early Cold War era, the attitudes and policies toward UFOs by the military and intelligence community, and the fascinating development of the citizen movements to end UFO secrecy.
In 2009, Richard completed Volume Two of his historical study, subtitled The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991, and is now at work on the final volume of his historical trilogy.
It’s Not a UFO, Just a Killer Drone for an Aircraft Carrier - (December 21, 2011 - by Spencer Ackerman - Wired) - Note to the Navy: When trucking a giant flying robot with a rounded fuselage across the country, people are going to think they’re looking at an artifact from Area 51.
As the local news coverage above shows, residents of Cowley County, Kansas, were freaked out to see a truck rumbling down U.S. 77 towing what looks a whole lot like a 32-foot spaceship. “People were calling in saying, ‘Oh they think they found a flying saucer,’” Donetta Godsey of the Winfield Daily Courier told the ABC News affiliate.
Alas, the cargo wasn’t anything otherworldly. Just a trussed-up, wingless version of the Navy’s futuristic killer drone, the X-47B, which the Navy hopes will one day be the world’s first robot capable of landing on an aircraft carrier. For the past few days, it’s hitched a rather terrestrial ride from California’s Edwards Air Force Base to Patuxent River, Maryland.
“Oh, you mean the UFO?” Brooks McKinney, a spokesman for X-47B manufacturer Northrop Grumman, told Danger Room.
McKinney’s both embarrassed and amused by the UFO confusion. “They effectively shrink-wrapped the rest of the fuselage after taking the wings off the drone for the cross-country trek,” he said. “Because it was 32 feet wide, it could only travel certain hours of the day because we blocked off the road. That led to lots of weird stories, like we had abandoned [the X-47B] on the side of the road.”
The X-47B arrived safely at Pax River, the Navy’s big aviation testbed, on Tuesday. There, it’ll undergo tests to ensure it can perform its signature intended maneuver: taking off and landing on an aircraft carrier — and with those complex maneuvers eventually directed by a mere mouse click. - http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2011/12/ufo-drone-x47b/

The Leah Haley Case: John Carpenter (Controversy Or Conspiracy?)
Oxygen Envelops Saturn's Icy Moon - (March 2, 2012 - A NASA spacecraft has detected oxygen around one of Saturn's icy moons, Dione.
The discovery supports a theory that suggests all of the moons near Saturn and Jupiter might have oxygen around them.
Researchers say that their finding increases the likelihood of finding the ingredients for life on one of the moons orbiting gas giants.
The study has been published in Geophysical Research Letters.
According to co-author Andrew Coates of University College London, Dione has no liquid water and so does not have the conditions to support life. But it is possible that other moons of Jupiter and Saturn do."Some of the other moons have liquid oceans and so it is worth looking more closely at them for signs of life," Prof Coates said. - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17225127

Best Picture Ever Of UFO Was Taken Over Perthshire…But Government Officials Shredded It, Claims Expert - (March 13, 2012 - The Daily Record/UK) - A FORMER Government UFO investigator has revealed how officials shredded the most compelling evidence for aliens that he has ever seen.
Nick Pope claimed a photograph of a metallic spacecraft in the sky over Calvine in Perthshire mysteriously disappeared after the Ministry of Defence got their hands on it.
He added: “This was easily the most compelling UFO photo I’ve ever seen in my life.
“It went to the technical specialists at the Defence Intelligence Staff and elsewhere. Their results of the analysis were that this was a real thing – it wasn’t a faked photo.”
Pope, who ran the Government’s UFO project from 1991 to 1994, said he had the image in his office but it was removed and later disappeared.
He said that when he challenged officials about the photo, they claimed there was no record of it.
Speaking about the spacecraft on BBC Radio Scotland’s Tales of the Unexplained, Pope added: “It was a diamond-shaped metallic craft about 25 metres in diameter and there seemed to be military jets in the background.
“It wasn’t clear whether they were escorting this thing or even maybe chasing it.
“I actually had a copy of this. It was one of the things blown up on my office wall when I was at the UFO project.
“One day, my head of division took it down and locked it in a drawer because he didn’t think we should be displaying something like that.
“When the Ministry of Defence declassified and released its UFO files, which is an ongoing process, those photos and the copies that had been on my wall had mysteriously disappeared.” - http://mcaf.ee/4rw0n
Russia Plans Moon Base, Mars Network by 2030 - (March 14, 2012 - by Mark Brown - Wired UK) - Russia plans to send probes to Jupiter and Venus, land a network of unmanned stations on Mars and ferry Russian cosmonauts to the surface of the Moon — all by 2030. That’s according to a leaked document from the country’s space agency.
The cosmically ambitious plans were submitted to the government by the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) this month, according to a report in the Kommersant, Russia’s business-focused daily newspaper.
The document lays out a blueprint for the country’s space industry to follow in the next 18 years, up to 2030. It’s rare for Russia to set a deadline for its future space plans.
By 2020, the six-seater Angara rocket will replace the Soyuz as the spaceship of choice for launching Russian payloads. It will launch from the new Vostochny cosmodrome in the east of Russia, which will replace the outdated Baikonur facility. Construction on Vostochny started in 2011, and is scheduled for completion in 2018.
By 2030, Russia will send robots to the Moon to collect samples. The program will be punctuated with a manned Moon landing — 60 years after Neil Armstrong’s Apollo mission. Payback, perhaps, for losing out on the major leg of the U.S. and Soviet space race.The optimistic program also lays out plans for active exploration of other planets in the solar system, and ideas for a follow-up to the International Space Station: The ISS is only funded until 2020. - http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/03/russia-moonbase-mars/

Sarasota-Herald Columnist Billy Cox Tells Media To Take Heed Of UFOs - (March 20, 2012 - by Billy Cox - Sarasota Herald-Tribune) - [Ecuador’s President] Correa also decided to declassify the military’s stash of UFO data. Don’t retch – hang with this. Correa did it by ordering his generals to give a veteran TV journo all the resources he needed to find it. And Jaime Rodriguez has been reporting on the results via Ecuavision in Quito ever since. Rodriguez alleges that at least some of the financial and career incentives offered by Uncle Sam to Ecuador’s military were contingent upon keeping its UFO material classified. Is this true? Obviously no one in these parts can say, because we don’t cover UFOs. But what anyone can confirm, with just a few strokes of the keyboard, and without having to expend any resources, is that today in Ecuador, active duty pilots and officers are talking freely about near collisions in the skies. Some of those events are hair-raising.
What we also know is that democracy has swept military dictatorships out of South America for the first time in decades. And that perhaps as a consequence, at least six of those nations, including Ecuador, have, with full military support, been emptying their UFO case files into the public domain. One of those countries, Chile, has entered into a formal data-analysis partnership with an American non-profit directed by a former NASA scientist. - http://mcaf.ee/gwkh1

“Authentic” Alien Material Highlights New Area 51 Exhibit - (March 2012 - JD Journal) - The exhibit’s description is as follows: “Three Soviet academic centers and 11 research institutes analyzed the objects from this UFO crash. The distance between atoms is different from ordinary iron. Radar cannot be reflected from the material. Elements in the material may disappear and new ones appear after heating. One piece disappeared completely in front of four witnesses. The core of the material is composed of a substance with anti-gravitational properties.”
According to George Knapp, a Las Vegas KLAS-TV news reporter, “Valerie Dvuzhilini of the Academy of Sciences was the first to arrive on the scene two days later. He collected samples of strange metallic mesh scattered at the site and samples of rocks and vegetation which had been scorched at the crash.”
Knapp claims that Russian scientists scrutinized the samples, and in the days that followed, numerous people reported seeing “UFO-type craft” hovering in the area of Height 611, presumably in search of the crash site.
Multi-Emmy Award winning Knapp, the first U.S. journalist to trek to Russia to see the UFO crash site, was provided with samples of debris. These materials, including shiny, round objects also discovered at additional crash sites, were given to the National Atomic Testing Museum for exhibition.Knapp didn’t believe that the Russian scientists who examined the material ever described it as “out of this world,” but they conceded that it was an unordinary substance. Knapp further stated that some of the material was sent to academies and was not returned. Perhaps this is another mystery to add to the conspiracy of UFOs? - http://www.jdjournal.com/2012/03/27/authentic-alien-material-highlights-new-area-51-exhibit/

Although the field was planted in barley, it was also infested with Canadian thistle, a tough & very prickly plant which is extremely difficult to flatten: [photo]
In spite of this the 7 circles were found to be intricately flattened, with a narrow counter-clockwise band around the perimeter of each circle which was underneath a radially-laid second layer, topped off with a totally chaotic third layer on top: [diagram]
With financial support from Laurance Rockefeller we were able to carry out a thorough examination of the plants, as well as testing of the surface soils for the presence of magnetic spheres and an x-ray diffraction analysis of specific heat-sensitive clay minerals in these surface soils. The results were as strong as any we have seen.
The plants showed massive node elongation and presence of multiple expulsion cavities and the magnetic spheres were also present. Most stunning was the discovery of an increase in the crystalline structure of the clay minerals in the surface soils, a change previously known by geologists to occur only in sedimentary rock -- never in surface soils before.During the study neither I nor any of the four BLT scientific consultants involved in this study were aware that another highly anomalous situation was related to this crop formation--that there were at least 4 eyewitnesses to UFOs over the study field shortly before the crop circle was discovered. The TV show "Unsolved Mysteries" did, in fact, document these sightings and we've now posted an edited version of that show at the beginning of our "XRD Clay Mineral Study" Report, just below the diagram of the Edmonton, Alberta crop circle: http://www.

Encountering the Integratron in the Mojave Desert - (June 20, 2008 - by Scott Gold, Los Angeles Times
Staff Writer ) - …the site's zany history, which starts with
its architect, an iconoclast named George
In the midst of a career in aerospace, Van Tassel effectively dropped out. In 1947, he leased four square miles of desert from the federal government and built an "Interplanetary Airport" and a tiny restaurant, famous for his wife's apple pie, near fabled Giant Rock, a seven-story-high boulder that has since split in two.
Van Tassel claimed to have been visited by aliens in 1952, and thousands began making pilgrimages to his "Spacecraft Conventions" in the desert. He said the aliens had imparted information regarding time travel and rejuvenation.
Van Tassel began building the Integratron. He never quite finished, however, and died in 1978. - http://mcaf.ee/w683k
