It’s official – the US Air Force had a plan to nuke the moon. According to a declassified report obtained by CNN in a story that aired on November 28, the Air Force plan involved sending a nuclear missile that would detonate on impact with the lunar surface. The aim was apparently to respond to Soviet success in launching Sputnik I, and showing that the US had a capacity to send rockets to, and eventually from the moon. The project was titled “A Study of Lunar Research Flights” (aka “Project A-119”) and was planned in 1958. According to the declassified report, the plan was never implemented, and was abandoned one year later due to concerns over the effect of nuclear radiation on the moon, and a public backlash. According to one senior US Air Force officer, however, not only was an attempt made to detonate a nuclear bomb on the moon decades later, but there was an external intervention to destroy the missile.

CNN was able to track down and interview the physicist who led Project A-119. Leonard Reiffel told CNN:

People were worried very much by (first human in space Soviet cosmonaut Yuri) Gagarin and Sputnik and the very great accomplishments of the Soviet Union in those days, and in comparison, the United States was feared to be looking puny. So this was a concept to sort of reassure people that the United States could maintain a mutually-assured deterrence, and therefore avoid any huge conflagration on the Earth,”

“The basic plan,” according to Reiffel, “was for an intercontinental ballistic missile to be launched from an undisclosed location, travel some 240,000 miles to the moon, and detonate on impact.” Information from the impact, according to Report, would yield information “concerning the capability of nuclear weapons for space warfare.” Reiffel explained:

The thinking … was that if the Soviets hit the United States with nuclear weapons first and wiped out the U.S. ability to strike back, the U.S. could launch warheads from the moon.

Reiffel claims that Project A-119 was quickly abandoned because:

We didn’t want to clutter up the natural radioactivities of the moon with additional bits of radioactivity from the Earth,.. Project planners also weren’t sure of the reliability of the weapons, and feared the public backlash in the U.S. would be significant.

 

So if Reiffel and the 1959 report is accurate, then the plan to nuke the moon was never attempted. Or was it? According to a retired USAF Colonel, not only was an attempt made to nuke the moon, but there was UFO intervention to destroy the missile soon after its launch.

Colonel Ross Dedrickson explained his background in nuclear weapons security in an interview with Dr Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project:

I was a staff officer for the military liaison committee between the chairman of the AEC [Atomic Energy Commission] and the Secretary of Defense…. During that period of time [early 1950s] one of my functions was to accompany a security team which visited all of the nuclear facilities to check on the security of weapons…. I was assigned to the Unified Command under Admiral Felt during the ‘60s. I was the officer in charge of the Alternate command post involved with nuclear weapons operation planning. During that period of time, I maintained contacts with NORAD, with the SAC operations, and was involved with operational plans for the use of nuclear weapons.

Colonel Dedrickson then explained:

I finally retired from the Air Force and joined the Boeing Company where I was assigned to the Minute Man program where I was responsible for the accounting of all the nuclear fleet, the Minute Man One, Two, and Three. And during that period of time, I also learned about incidents involving nuclear weapons. And among these incidents were those where a couple of nuclear weapons that were sent into space were destroyed …

Dedrickson claims that one of these nuclear weapons fired into space was aimed at the moon:

It was my understanding that in either the very end of the ‘70s or the early ‘80s that we attempted to put a nuclear weapon on the Moon and explode it for scientific measurements and other things…

Who was it that destroyed the nuclear missile aimed at the moon, and interfered with other nuclear weapons tests by the USA? According to Dedrickson, the missiles were destroyed by UFOs that he believed were manned by an extraterrestrial intelligence. Dedrickson’s remarkable claims are backed by other retired USAF officials that state that US and Soviet nuclear missiles were regularly interfered with by UFOs since the dawn of the nuclear era.

In conclusion, we know that the USAF did officially conceive a plan in 1958 to launch and detonate a nuclear missile on the moon. Apparently, “Project A-119” was abandoned one year later. If Colonel Dedrickson is accurate, however, then Project A-119 was either resurrected decades later or a new project was conceived with a similar goal. The timing of the later project, in the late 1970s/early 1980s, suggests the nuclear missile attempt may have been related to circumstances surrounding the end of the Apollo lunar missions. According to some whistleblowers the USA was not “allowed” to return to the moon by an extraterrestrial intelligence based on the moon. It appears that there was indeed an attempt to send a nuclear missile to the moon by the USAF, and that it was destroyed by some external agency – UFOs and/or extraterrestrial intelligence – closely monitoring nuclear weapons testing on Earth, outer space and the moon.

In Tuesday's U.S. Presidential election, Barack Obama won a narrow but clear victory over his Republican opponent. Democrats held on to their Senate majority, and Republicans maintained control over the House of Representatives. The next twelve months or so will be when Obama moves forward with his most ambitious re-election policies before the 2014 mid-term elections return the United States again to the hyper-partisan politics that produced gridlock for the last two years. Republican control over the House will ensure that there is plenty of opposition to much of Obama’s legislative agenda. This will not be the case though with immigration reform to finally deal with the question of illegal aliens. Severely punished by the Latino vote, Republicans are sure to give bipartisan support to Obama in passing a new DREAM Act to legalize the status of young illegal aliens raised in the USA. What however of another type of illegal alien claimed to be visiting the USA? Does UFO extraterrestrial disclosure figure at all in Obama’s political agenda?

When Obama first became President there were many hopeful signs that his push for more transparent and accountable government would translate into greater openness where the truth would finally come out about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. His appointment of Hillary Clinton to Secretary of State fueled rumors that her documented interest in UFOs in the Clinton administration would lead to some startling disclosures. Whistleblowers were ready to come forward to testify about a host of illegal government activities if they were given protection to reveal their secrets. This culminated in the belief that disclosure of extraterrestrial life was imminent early in the Obama administration. Four years later, those early hopes look positively naïve. Government transparency did not open up national security archives to researchers, and whistleblower protection did not happen after all. The Obama administration went on the record to disavow any interest in investigating claims that the Roswell crash really involved otherworldly UFOs. There was no disclosure of extraterrestrial life visiting our world.

What has changed, four years after Obama’s first Presidential election, is that the world is better prepared for accepting that extraterrestrial life exists. Here are three scenarios of how Obama might announce the existence of alien life during his second term of office.

Scenario 1 – Alien life found on exoplanets. The deployment of advanced space telescopes such as NASA's Kepler Mission, has led to the discovery of hundreds of exoplanets. This has revolutionized the scientific community. The question, “do habitable conditions for life exist elsewhere in the galaxy?” has been decisively answered in the affirmative. Statistics tell us that some, if not many, of the billions of exoplanets projected to exist in our galaxy alone, are sure to host some form of life. The world’s foremost scientists are now openly discussing the scientific and social consequences of extraterrestrial life being discovered. The question is now “when” rather than “if” extraterrestrial life will be discovered by the next generation of space telescopes used to scan the galaxy.  The new Obama administration will continue to fund NASA scientific missions, making it possible that at some point in his second term, he can announce that we are not alone in the galaxy.

Scenario 2 – Roswell Crash really did happen. This scenario concerns claims that extraterrestrials are visiting us now and select government agencies have been covering this up since at least July, 1947, when the famous Roswell crash incident occurred. As most are aware, the US Army Air Corps released a statement on July 8 that a flying saucer had crashed, but retracted it hours later. Chase Brandon, a former CIA clandestine officer and public relations representative has claimed that he saw a file in the CIA historical archive that settled any personal doubt he had that the Roswell flying saucer crash really did involve extraterrestrial life and technology. Chase’s claims echo those of Lt. Col. Philip Corso, who led the Foreign Technology Desk at the US Army Research and Development department. Corso claims the U.S. Army had a filing cabinet with material from the Roswell crash that was leaked to private industry to spark technological development. During Obama’s second term, more material/evidence from the Roswell crash may leak, and/or witnesses come forward to reveal that extraterrestrial technology was indeed recovered. Several petitions have been launched with the Obama White House to achieve this goal.

Scenario 3 – (Contrived) War of the Worlds. There have been claims by Gordon Duff, a senior editor of Veterans Today, John Kettler and others of secret battles in the Pacific Ocean and Antarctica between a coalition of US-led Naval forces and extraterrestrials based in undersea bases. So far, there has not been any hard evidence to support such claims, only anonymous sources that are not revealed by Duff, et al. A Stalin era intelligence file released in 1991 revealed that the Admiral Byrd’s Antarctic expedition, Operation Highjump, did encounter and battle with a mysterious UFO force in early 1947. A succession of Hollywood blockbusters, Battleship, Battle Los Angeles, and the Avengers all focus on an extraterrestrial invasion theme. Is the public being conditioned to accept the possibility of an extraterrestrial invasion for a contrived national security crisis? According to former chief Apollo scientist, Werner Von Braun, a contrived alien invasion has been planned for several decades. Could President Obama one day find himself publicly responding to a national security crisis where US and allied military forces are under (a contrived) attack from an alien presence?  

Any of the above or alternative scenarios might occur in the next year, or before the end of Obama’s second term of office in January 2017 – so what would happen? Obama’s award of the Nobel Peace Prize; mixed racial heritage; and an eclectic religious upbringing with a Christian mother, a Muslim father and stepfather, and six years spent in Muslim Indonesia as a youth, make him ideally suited to become a highly popular world leader.If it was decided that the existence of extraterrestrial life – due to scientific discovery and/or political necessity – was to be announced to the world, then President Obama would be the ideal candidate for the job.

Extraterrestrial disclosure would very likely overcome national differences and lead to rapid political unification at a planetary level, as President Reagan speculated in a General Assembly speech at the United Nations in 1987. We could very quickly expect world-wide planetary elections for national citizens to be represented in direct dealings with Galactic civilizations. This could be achieved either through significant reform of the United Nations (which currently represents “states” and not “people”), or through the creation of a “United Earth” sovereign body representing the people of Earth. In either case, any formal announcement by President Obama of the existence of extraterrestrial life would start a series of events where he would predictably take a more global leadership role in representing the people of Earth in negotiations with galactic visitors. So when President Obama and his bipartisan Republican allies pass a revamped DREAM act for illegal aliens, let’s dream of what would happen if the existence of off-planet aliens were also to announced by the White House sometime in the next four years.

I recently wrote an article directly referring to John Kettler’s claims of a UFO war in Antarctica and the Pacific Ocean where a coalition of US led naval forces are battling hostile extraterrestrials. In it, I stated my reservations over his extraordinary claims, but did acknowledge one historic incident in 1947 where there did appear to be a genuine battle between Admiral Byrd’s Operation Highjump, and a mysterious group of UFOs. While the lack of supporting evidence suggests Kettler’s claims are part of a psychological operation promoting a false flag event, the 1947 incident was something to seriously consider before reaching any final conclusion. I concluded my article by writing:  “great vigilance is required on the part of those investigating claims of battles between a US led alliance of naval powers, and hostile extraterrestrials based in undersea bases in Antarctica and/or the Pacific Ocean.”

Kettler has just written another article titled: “UFO War–A Ghastly New Foe! Great Victories!”  In it he claims:

The UFO War has taken quite a turn since the Reptoid attack which cost the U.S. a frigate and 250+ people making the ship’s complement. In  shootdown after shootdown in which survivors have been recovered, there have been NO Reptoids  found. What has been found has driven one person, so far, to kill himself and sent others off the deep end. NOT kidding! … They call them Blobs.

Who are the “Blobs” battling the US Navy and allies? Kettler gives this assessment:

Blobs are intelligent, dexterous (observed deftly playing with a computer keyboard) and use technology highly advanced by our standards. Their antigravity craft, equally at home underwater or in the air, have no force fields, but whatever they’re made of, they’re very tough. Their engineering is superb. According to the Eloah, the Blobs have bases below fresh water, on the ocean bottom (pressure=5000 atmospheres at 30,000 foot depth) and underground. Blobs presently have no space travel capabilities, but they did in the past and are attempting to regain that capability.

What are the sources supporting Kettler’s extraordinary claims? According to Kettler, "the information here comes primarily from highly sensitive military, intelligence and scientific sources, supplemented by nonterrestrial ones. The government’s official policy is total and ongoing denial."

No where else in his article does Kettler describe or attempt to substantiate his sources. I decided to respond directly to Kettler’s latest article by posting a comment critical of his use of anonymous sources to support claims of a dangerous new extraterrestrial enemy battling US led naval forces. Here is what I wrote:

You say: "The information here comes primarily from highly sensitive military, intelligence and scientific sources, supplemented by nonterrestrial ones." There is a slippery slope when we use anonymous sources. When these sources take us down the negative ET route, then our BS meter needs to be refined accordingly. Why would anyone ONLY accept anonymous sources whose credibility, accuracy is not open to scrutiny by independent researchers? Dr Greer's Disclosure Project set a high standard by making public whistleblower reports where the sources could be checked, scrutinized, etc. That guaranteed that we weren't being spun a story or fed disinformation. That is the major problem with John Kettler's recent claims of a UFO war. No way of confirming any of Kettler's anonymous sources are legit, and not feeding him/us disinfo.

Kettler decided to respond at length. To see his full response, click here. I’ve extracted portions of his response to see whether they cast light on the legitimacy of his sources, and Kettler’s own credibility as a researcher exposing classified information dealing with extraterrestrial life.

In his response, Kettler began by giving details about his father’s background working for a military defense contractor, and then commented on his own professional experience working with both Rockwell and Hughes corporations for an eleven year period as stated in his bio. First, Kettler explained that he had received clearances for a Special Access Program:

At Rockwell, I worked on the B-1B, the Advanced Tactical Fighter, Advanced Close Air Support program and the crown jewel of Rockwell, the NASP, National Aerospace Plane, single stage to orbit, hydrogen powered craft which took off from and landed on runways. My work was handling the threats to the NDVs (NASP Derived Vehicles). This program was a SAP (Special Access Program) which addressed a family of military hypersonic vehicles covering Mach 4+-orbital. It had four levels of clearance, and I had all four.

This certainly would have given him knowledge with classified information pertaining to advanced aviation projects. He then went on to describe his highest level of clearance:

I’ve held TS clearance myself and was being cleared for TS/SCI (Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information) when I left Rockwell, my health in ruins, June 20, 1989…. In order to fool me, you’d have to be able to fake your way through an incredibly broad and diverse range of topics, and I can talk anything from hand grenades to deep space surveillance–for starters!

Kettler acknowledges that the highest security classification he attained while working at Rockwell and/or Hughes was Top Secret. So it is very strange indeed that he claims that he is able to vet people with Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) on a range of topics related to extraterrestrial life and technology. There is a very large gap between clearances for SAPs/SCI dealing with advanced aerospace projects, and classified projects dealing with extraterrestrial life. More importantly, one needs to be able to demonstrate need-to-know to gain access to information/projects outside their direct area of work. One can get an idea of how this system operates by reading about the case of Admiral Thomas Wilson, then head of intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who was denied access to a UFO/extraterrestrial project in 1997. Put simply, Wilson was unable to demonstrate that he had a need-to-know to gain access, even though he had access to most other highly classified projects and SCI known to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

If a Navy Admiral and intelligence chief is denied clearance for a highly classified alien related project since he could not demonstrate need-to-know, what chance would there be for a civilian contractor with aerospace companies to have access to information on covert alien programs? More to the point, having only ever gained a Top Secret clearance, would Kettler be qualified to vet anyone with SCI/classified alien information, to learn if they are telling him the truth? No, certainly not, but he claims that he is able to do so. In fact, Kettler claims that he has regular communications with people with SCI clearances dealing with the alien issue. He writes:

At the levels from which I get my stories, the information seldom leaves the SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility), in which no notes may be taken, no copies made, someone always has to be with you, and everything you see has to be signed for. At this stratospheric level, practically everything is carried in finely honed memories.

So Kettler claims that his sources have SCI clearance for alien related information, and have been secretly conveying this to him in clandestine communications. Relying on their memories of what they have witnessed, read or experienced, and Kettler’s own abilities to vet such information – while not having had direct access himself to such information – Kettler believes he is able to relay accurate information from his anonymous sources.

In conclusion, John Kettler is basically saying, “you need to trust me since I have the professional experience and skills to both ferret out the truth about alien related projects, and vet the sources relaying it. The truth is that hostile extraterrestrials are out there doing atrocious things, and the US Navy and its allies are heroically defending our way of life, and the world itself in an expanding war in the Pacific Ocean, and now in Antarctica.

Well sorry Mr Kettler, while there is no reason to doubt that your professional career exposed you to classified material on some advanced aerospace projects, this is a far cry from alien related projects that are deeply compartmentalized and hidden by strict need-to-know security procedures. According to whistleblowers who have chosen to come forward and reveal classified information about alien projects – for example, Philip Corso , Dan Sherman and Clifford Stone –  such projects have far higher clearance levels than anything related to advanced military or civilian aerospace projects. Sherman in particular points out that alien related projects are embedded within more conventional classified projects with SCI/SAP clearance levels, and use the latter as a cover. Without having had direct access to SCI on alien projects, how could Kettler possibly vet people who claim to have had such access? There is no reason to doubt Kettler’s sincerity that he has been told some amazing stories about aliens, but until such sources come forward, then there is a very strong possibility that he is being used as a means of disseminating disinformation.

John Kettler’s claims of an undeclared UFO war, backed up entirely by anonymous sources represents a diminishing standard of research in the field of UFOs and exopolitics. While it is understandable that some sources choose to remain anonymous for reasons of personal security, it is dangerous to rely exclusively on such sources. This is especially the case when it comes to claims concerning hostile extraterrestrials given evidence that plans for a false flag alien event have been planned for several decades. Kettler’s refusal to reveal sources concerning hostile extraterrestrials battling US led naval forces may be entirely to protect these from exposure and harm. Alternatively, Kettler is being used as a willing dupe in spreading disinformation concerning hostile extraterrestrials by sources that have been tasked to manipulate him as part of a psychological warfare operation. Kettler's reflexive response to my raising such a possibility suggests that it is more likely that he falls into the latter category of a disinformation asset, rather than a truth teller.

An extraordinary 2006 Russian documentary was recently translated into English revealing new information about a US Navy Antarctica expedition in 1946/47. Originally scheduled for a six month period, the “scientific” expedition was officially called “The United States Navy Antarctic Development Program,” and given the operational name Highjump. The naval component of Operation Highjump was known as Task Force 68 and comprised 4700 military personnel, one aircraft carrier (the USS Philippine Sea among the largest of all carriers of the time), and number of naval support ships and aircraft. The Naval expedition was headed by famed polar explore Admiral Richard Byrd, who had been ordered to: “to consolidate and extend American sovereignty over the largest practical area of the Antarctic continent.” Byrd’s expedition ended after only 8 weeks with “many fatalities” according to initial news reports based on interviews with crew members who spoke to the press while passing through Chilean ports. Rather than deny the heavy casualty reports, Admiral Byrd revealed in a press interview that Task Force 68 had encountered a new enemy that “could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds.”

Admiral Byrd’s statements were published in the Chilean Press but never publicly confirmed by US authorities. Indeed Byrd did not speak again to the Press about Operation Highjump, leaving it for researchers to speculate for decades over what really happened, and why Byrd was silenced. After the Soviet collapse in 1991, the KGB released previously classified files that cast light on the mysterious Byrd led Naval expedition to Antarctica. A 2006 Russian documentary, recently translated, made public for the first time a 1947 secret Soviet intelligence report commissioned by Joseph Stalin of Task 68’s mission to Antarctica. The intelligence report, gathered from Soviet spies embedded in the US, revealed that the US Navy had sent the military expedition to find and destroy a hidden Nazi base. On the way, they encountered a mysterious UFO force that attacked the military expedition destroying several ships and a significant number of planes. Indeed, Operation Highjump had suffered “many casualties” as stated in initial press reports from Chile. While there is a possibility the report resulted from US disinformation fed to a known Soviet mole, the more likely explanation is that the report exposes the first known historical incident involving a battle between US naval forces and an unknown UFO force stationed near Antarctica.

It is a historical fact that Nazi Germany devoted significant resources to the exploration of Antarctica, and established a prewar presence there with its first mission in the Antarctic summer of 1938/1939. According to a statement by Grand Admiral Donitz in 1943, “the German submarine fleet is proud of having built for the Führer, in another part of the world, a Shangri-La land, an impregnable fortress." If the fortress was in Antarctica, was it built by the Nazis, or discovered there? After the defeat of Nazi Germany, according various sources, elite Nazi scientists and leaders escaped to this impregnable fortress by Uboats, two of which experienced difficulties and surrendered in Argentina.

In the Soviet intelligence report, never before known testimony by two US Navy servicemen with Operation Highjump was revealed. A recent article in New Dawn by Frank Joseph gives a detailed analysis of the two eyewitness accounts, only the latter of which was mentioned in the 2006 Russian documentary. John P. Szehwach, a radioman stationed on the USS Brownson, gave testimony of how UFOs appeared dramatically out of the ocean depths. On January 17, 1947 at 0700 hours, Szehwach said:

I and my shipmates in the pilothouse port side observed for several minutes the bright lights that ascended about 45 degrees into the sky very quickly… We couldn’t i.d., the lights, because our radar was limited to 250 miles in a straight line.[Our Real “War of the Worlds"]

Over the next several weeks, according to the Soviet report, the UFOs flew close over the US naval flotilla which fired on the UFOs which did retaliate with deadly effects. According to Lieutenant John Sayerson, a flying boat pilot:

The thing shot vertically out of the water at tremendous velocity, as though pursued by the devil, and flew between the masts [of the ship] at such a high speed that the radio antenna oscillated back and forth in its turbulence. An aircraft [Martin flying-boat] from the Currituck that took off just a few moments later was struck with an unknown type of ray from the object, and almost instantly crashed into the sea near our vessel…. About ten miles away, the torpedo-boat Maddox burst into flames and began to sink… Having personally witnessed this attack by the object that flew out of the sea, all I can say is, it was frightening.”[Our Real “War of the Worlds"]

There is a major problem with Sayerson’s quote. There has been no torpedo boat named Maddox in the US Navy.   In the Russian documentary, the incident described by Sayerson (misspelt Sireson) refers instead to the destroyer “Murdoch.” There was, however, no destroyer named “Murdoch” active in the US Fleet in 1947. Instead there was a destroyer named “Maddox” (DD-731), but it did not serve in Operation Highjump. In fact, the USS Maddox was the destroyer fired upon in the Gulf of Tonkin incident of 1964.

According to Frank Joseph the USS Maddox was “either a torpedo boat, or torpedo-carrying destroyer.” He goes on to explain what may have happened to the Maddox mentioned in the Soviet report:

A USS Maddox was indeed sunk by enemy action, but five years earlier by a German dive-bomber during the Allied invasion of Sicily. Actually there were at least three American destroyers known by that name (DD-168, DD-622 and DD-731) all of them contemporaneous. The US Navy has long been notorious for falsifying the identity of its ships and re-writing their histories if they embarrass official policy…. So too, the “Maddox” cited by Soviet espionage was similarly consigned to an official memory hole.[Our Real “War of the Worlds"]

If Joseph is correct, then it is very possible that a USS Maddox was destroyed during Operation Highjump, and the US Navy changed official records to hide this. An alternative explanation is that the 1947 Soviet report contained U.S. orchestrated disinformation that was being conveyed to Soviet authorities by a Soviet mole known by the US intelligence community. Though plausible, this is highly unlikely given that the US and USSR were still allies at the time of Operation Highjump, and had a common interest in finding and destroying any hidden Nazi base(s) in the South Atlantic.

The destructive technology used by the UFOs in the Soviet intelligence report was not something that had been developed by the defeated Nazis who had only shortly before been forced to retreat to the South Atlantic. It appears the UFOs were not intent on destroying Task Force 68, but forcing it to turn back. Were the UFOs protecting the retreating Nazis and/or their own presence in Antarctica? Was the Stalin era report disinformation deliberately fed to Soviet authorities by US intelligence? What is the most likely answer is that the Soviet era report released in the 2006 Russian Documentary was substantially correct. This suggests that Admiral Byrd’s initial press report was accurate – a new enemy that could fly from pole to pole at “incredible speeds” had emerged. Most importantly, the UFO force had inflicted heavy casualties on the US Navy that was powerless to oppose it. The world’s first known battle between the United States military and an unknown UFO fleet based near Antarctica very likely occurred in 1947, and the general public has never learned about it until now.

According to Gordon Duff, senior editor of Veterans Today, intelligence sources are revealing that hostile extraterrestrials are militarily engaging with world naval forces. In an article, provocatively titled, “UFO War: Chinese and US Navy off San Francisco,” Duff claims that the Chinese navy is lending assistance to the US in battling these hostile forces in what looks like a real life version of the recent movie Battleship. Duff claims that his intelligence sources are Asian, and that US naval forces are stretched thin in the Pacific due to a beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf. Duff admits that the story stretches credibility but that his source is usually reliable, thereby raising the possibility that either the story is largely accurate and/or officially sanctioned disinformation. Are we being prepared for an alien false flag invasion?

Duff is a former Marine and has been very outspoken in exposing the misuse of government power and authority. Veterans Today is a highly popular newsblog taking on many controversial topics not covered by the mainstream media. It includes former senior military officers on its international Board of Directors. So it was very surprising to see Veteran’s Today on Monday leading with Duff’s attention grabbing headline and article. Duff claims:

This last week, reports of Chinese naval vessels off the US coast, Northern Californian in particular, have been reported but denied. Now an Asian intelligence agency reports that a combined fleet operation between the US and China has been going on, a full combat operation against what we are told is a “highly unfriendly extra-terrestrial threat.” The verifications of the fleet operations have been many, there have been no confirmations from the US side though the ships have been seen by every vessel that makes it offshore.  The true nature of both the threat and the extent of the multinational military force used is beyond any imaginable classification level.

The claim that a multinational military force is battling a UFO threat off the coast of San Francisco appears to be circumstantially supported by unusually high US naval activity in the region. Duff claims that no US military sources are confirming these events. He refers to a classified memo that apparently is being circulated to only a small group of need-to-know officials. Duff claims the memo mentions:

  • Opposition is extraterrestrial and extremely aggressive and unfriendly
  • The threat represents a “clear and present danger” and is isolated to the Pacific Basin
  • China is forced to carry US responsibility because our own naval capability is sitting in the Persian Gulf when America is under a very real threat.
  • Attempts to seek confirmations or to directly verify these operations will lead to fatal consequences.

In his conclusion Duff writes: “I either have to give this a 70% or reclassify a reliable official source as purposefully leaking something that makes no sense.” 

In the swirl of rumors surrounding UFO naval incidents described in Duff’s article, it’s clear that some intelligence agency is depicting extraterrestrials as hostile. This goes against the evidence accumulated over more than six decades that extraterrestrials have been peacefully engaging with governments and private citizens to raise consciousness, share advanced technologies, and prevent nuclear warfare. While the abduction phenomenon rightly raises concerns over the emotional and psychological impact of some extraterrestrial activities, it’s rare to hear of citizens being physically injured. While it is always possible that a new faction of extraterrestrials may have recently arrived that are indeed hostile, it’s more likely that the incidents Duff describes are part of a psychological warfare program. The goal is to firmly establish UFOs and extraterrestrial life as issues belonging to the national security domain, rather than to international diplomacy.

An alien false flag event – a contrived extraterrestrial invasion using advanced technologies – would ensure that public awareness of evidence concerning alien life is skewed towards national security concerns. Viewing extraterrestrials as hostile, intent on overcoming the world’s military forces, would justify national security policies that would further erode constitutional principles in the USA. More importantly, it would sideline international organizations such as the United Nations intent on promoting diplomatic solutions to international crises.

Rumors of a false flag alien date back to the “Report from Iron Mountain” document first released in the early 1960s and published in 1967. Dr Werner Von Braun later confided to a close colleague that a false flag alien invasion was indeed been planned by corporate entities along with their national security agency partners. An alien false flag event would be the ultimate way in which national security agencies and their multinational corporate partners could engineer government policies that increase their respective power, and maintain the secrecy of an extensive number of classified programs that are funded by a quasi-legal black budget. What Duff describes in his article, and parallels with the recent Battleship movie, has the tell-tale characteristics of a psychological warfare program to prepare the general public for a false flag alien invasion.

The White House has once again launched “We the People,” an online platform designed to hear from the American public about their key issues. In the midst of a highly competitive election season, President Obama is once more reaching out to the public to show he cares about their issues. The White House website declares: “We the People provides a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country. We created We the People because we want to hear from you. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.”  Among the many petitions being launched, and hoping to pass the lofty 25,000 threshold, is one dealing with the famous Roswell UFO incident and the possibility that it was extraterrestrial in origin.

Steve Bassett from the Paradigm Research Group (PRG) has formally petitioned the Obama Administration to: “reinvestigate an alleged extraterrestrial vehicle crash near Roswell, NM in 1947 and an Air Force cover-up of the facts.” In support of his petition, which he titled, “Disclosure Petition V – Roswell,” Bassett cites a former astronaut, military officers and a retired CIA officer who all believe that something out of this world really did happen at Roswell:

Lt Col. Philip Corso (USA) "I came into possession of the Roswell File. This file contained field reports, medical autopsy reports and technological debris from the crash of an extraterrestrial vehicle."

Capt. Edgar Mitchell (USAF/NASA) "Roswell was a real incident, and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered from that crash site."

Chase Brandon (CIA) "It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet."

Lt. Col. Richard French (USAF) "There were actually two crashes at Roswell."

Bassett even cites Gov. Bill Richardson to support his petition for a new investigation: "The mystery surrounding this crash has never been adequately explained – not by independent investigators, and not by the U.S. government."

I contacted Steve Bassett and asked him a few questions about his current petition which is the fifth in a series of White House petitions launched by him

Q1. Why is this petition important?

Disclosure Petition V focuses on Roswell and is aimed to point back to the White House response to Disclosure Petition – I claiming there was no evidence for extraterrestrial engagement of the human race or for government suppression of any evidence for such.

The immediate effect of the White House "We the People" project was to permit the ET issue to be posted to the White House website for the first time.  This was a milestone.   As it happened the first Disclosure petition received the necessary 5,000 signatures triggering a formal written response from the Obama administration – also a first.   It remained up on the White House website for two months.   The subsequent Disclosure petitions were posted for 30 days each.   This is not just any website, it is the Internet presence for the President of the United States, and since September 22, 2011 the ET issue has been addressed on that website with regularity. 

I expect the "We the People" section to be closed after the election, regardless of the outcome.  Until then, PRG will continue to post Disclosure petitions to the site.

Q2. What was the White House response to your earlier petitions on UFO disclosure? Do you expect a different response this time? Why?

There will be no White House response to Disclosure Petition V – Roswell as there is little chance it will acquire the necessary 25,000 signatures.  The "We the People" project is fading out, largely due to actions by the White House.  There is an upside as the number of posted petitions has shrunk to about 30 providing the Disclosure petitions more visibility. 

Q3. What do you think will happen if you achieve the 25,000 threshold?

Under their own rules 25,000 signatures would generate a White House response.  It would be quite interesting to see how the White House would maneuver around the statements of Col. Corso, Capt. Mitchell, Gov. Richardson, Agent Brandon and Col. French.  Essentially, these men have called the U. S. Air Force a liar.  Awkward.  Such contradictions are rife throughout the truth embargo.  However, as long as the public and the media are willing to live with these contradictions, the truth embargo will continue.

After the first successful petition, Phil Larson from the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy, officially responded:

The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye. However, that doesn't mean the subject of life outside our planet isn't being discussed or explored. In fact, there are a number of projects working toward the goal of understanding if life can or does exist off Earth.

Larson went on to discuss the Search for Extraterrestrial Life Initiative (SETI); the Kepler Space Telescope seeking Earth-like exoplanets; and the Mars Science Laboratory, as examples of government projects focused on possible extraterrestrial life.

If “Disclosure Petition V – Roswell” does reach the 25,000 threshold it would be helpful to know if Mr Larson or the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy could give a different response this time. The official Obama Presidential Campaign slogan is Forward – it would be good if we could move forward on a genuine investigation of the Roswell UFO Crash and possible cover up of extraterrestrial life.

The world mourned the recent passing of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. According to various sources, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin saw large UFOs observing the moon landing from a nearby crater. Apparently, Armstrong took his moon secrets to the grave. Not so according to Dr Steven Greer, Director of the Disclosure Project – a non-profit organization dedicated to releasing whistleblower testimony of classified UFO projects. Greer spoke to close family members of both Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin who privately confirmed that the latter had seen large UFOs observing the Apollo 11 moon landing from a nearby crater. More significantly, a personal friend of Armstrong told Greer that Armstrong received death threats to keep his moon secrets. If true, both Apollo 11 astronauts and other surviving moon walkers have received death threats to keep their moon secrets.

During his life, Neil Armstrong publicly revealed nothing contrary to the official version of events that took place surrounding the Apollo 11 mission. As far as his public comments were concerned Armstrong didn’t appear to be keeping any moon secrets. There was however a cryptic comment he made during a White House speech celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing that he made on July 20th 1994 that suggested he was keeping moon secrets. While Armstrong struggled to hold back tears with other Apollo 11 astronauts and President Clinton watching, he said:

Today we have with us a group of students, among America’s best. To you we say, we have only completed a beginning. We leave you much that is undone. There are great ideas undiscovered, breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of truth's protective layers. There are places to go beyond belief.

What was Armstrong hiding? What did he mean by "truth's protective layers?"In an August 27 blog post, Dr Stephen Greer reveals that he spoke with close relatives of both Armstrong and Aldrin who had been told the truth about what the latter had seen on the moon:

Close friends and very close family members of both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin have separately told me that indeed there were numerous, large UFOs around the crater where the Lunar Module landed and that these were seen by both Armstrong and Aldrin. I have also spoken to military officers that have seen the footage of this event- but it has never been made public. One close family member of Buzz Aldrin told me “It is not my place to out Buzz on this- someday if he can speak about it, he will…

Greer next revealed that according to a close friend of Armstrong, the latter had received death threats to keep his moon secrets:

When we were organizing The Disclosure Project a few years ago, I asked one of Neil Armstrong’s friends if Armstrong would come to Washington to brief members of Congress at the 1997 Congressional briefing we organized in April of that year. I was told that Armstrong wished he could –but that if he spoke about what really happened during the moon landing, that Neil Armstrong, his wife, and children would all be killed. It was put to me this bluntly.

If what Greer was told by relatives and friends of Armstrong and Aldrin is accurate, then Aldrin and other surviving moon walkers have received death threats to maintain silence about what they saw on the moon. Armstrong’s cryptic comment at the White House, and struggle to hold back tears revealed his deep anguish over the momentous truths he was forced to hide. If America’s most celebrated astronaut could be so crudely threatened into silence, then ways need to be found to protect America’s remaining astronauts so they can come forward to reveal any moon secrets they are hiding.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon died today from heart failure. For many, Armstrong is the all-American hero who performed the seemingly impossible. He fulfilled President Kennedy’s vision of putting a man on the moon before the end of the decade. Armstrong’s walk on the moon was televised and witnessed by hundreds of millions around the planet. For many it was an unforgettable experience and sparked hopes of a bright future for human space travel. What Armstrong experienced that day on the moon has been marked by controversy over a two minute period of radio silence that surprised viewers and fueled many theories over what really happened. According to alleged leaked government documents and photographs, Armstrong did not just see the barren landscape televised to millions, but something much more significant. According to NASA insiders and an alleged ham radio transmission intercept, what Armstrong witnessed that day changed his life, and led to the eventual abandonment of the manned lunar missions. According to alleged leaked documents, two huge extraterrestrial spacecraft watched the Apollo 11 landing, and observed the Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin moon walks.

During the Apollo 11 moon landing, there was a two minute period of radio silence. According to NASA, the problem arose from one of two television cameras overheating, thus disrupting the reception. What really happened, according to various sources, was that Armstrong and Aldrin saw something else watching them! According to Timothy Good, author of Above Top Secret (1988) HAM radio operators receiving the VHF signals transmitted from Apollo 11 to NASA’s Houston headquarters, intercepted the following message which NASA screened from the public in the missing two minutes:

Mission Control:

What’s there ? Mission Control calling Apollo 11.

Apollo 11:

These babies are huge, sir … enormous….Oh, God, you wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other space craft out there… lined up on the far side of the crater edge… they’re on the moon watching us. (Above Top Secret, p. 384.)

The HAM operator’s radio intercept was widely dismissed by the media, but in 1975 it received unexpected support. Maurice Chatelain, is a retired NASA communications engineer who helped develop the communications system used in the Apollo moon missions. In his 1975 book, Our Cosmic Ancestors, he wrote:

[O]nly moments before Armstrong stepped down the ladder to set foot on the Moon, two UFOs hovered overhead. Edwin Aldrin took several pictures of them. Some of these photographs have been published in the June 1975 issue of Modern People magazine.” (p. 25)

Later, in 1979, Chatelain said that Armstrong’s sighting of two UFOs over a lunar crater was being deliberately kept from the media and public by NASA:  “The encounter was common knowledge in NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now.” l Even more remarkably, Chatelain claimed that:

…all Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin – flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence.

Was the missing two minutes of radio silence during the Apollo 11 moon landing an attempt by NASA to cover up what Armstrong really saw on the moon? Were UFO sightings a common occurrence during Apollo missions?

According to Buzz Aldrin in a number of press interviews, Apollo 11 was indeed watched by a UFO during its journey to the moon. Aldrin describes how the Apollo 11 astronauts avoiding mentioning the word UFO in reporting what they were witnessing, and instead asked Houston about the location of the Saturn V launch rocket. Aldrin’s admission that Apollo 11 was being shadowed by a UFO does give credence to belief that UFOs did witness the moon landing, and Armstrong had reported this to NASA in a radio communication that resulted in the missing two minutes of radio silence. Aldrin’s admission also supports Chatelain’s claim that one or more extraterrestrial vehicles watched the Apollo 11 moon landing as Chatelain claimed in his book.

Is there any other source supporting the controversial claims that Neil Armstrong had witnessed two huge extraterrestrial vehicles over a lunar crater watching the Apollo 11 moon landing. According to Timothy Good, Dr Vladimir Azhazha, a physicist and Professor of Mathemeatics at Moscow University at the time:

“Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them afte3r having landed near the moon module. But his message was never head by the public – because NASA censored it. (Above Top Secret, p. 384)

So why did NASA eventually terminate the Apollo missions if extraterrestrial visitors were there and watching the Earth? The answer according to Armstrong, as relayed by an unnamed Professor at a NASA symposium is as follows:

Professor: What really happened out there with Apollo 11?

Armstrong: It was incredible … of course, we had always known there was a possibility … the fact is, we were warned off. There was never any questions then of a space station or a moon city.

Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?

Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, where they big! … and menacing …. No, there is no question of a space station.

Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?

Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk a panic on earth…. But it really was a quick scoop and back again. (Above Top Secret, p. 186)

So what’s the truth? Did Neil Armstrong really see extraterrestrial vehicles on the moon, who eventually warned NASA not to return? With Armstrong’s death we will perhaps never have his personal version of what really happened on that July day in 1969. Perhaps NASA will one day release an official version of what really happened, or have they already done so through a fictional movie admission by Buzz Aldrin? In the movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Buzz Aldrin comes forward to reveal a version of the truth about what he and Armstrong saw on the moon. In the movie he says on a secret black operations radio line to NASA, during public radio silence, while on the moon:

Buzz Aldrin: You cannot believe what we’re seeing…

Black Ops NASA Technician: We are not alone after all, are we?

Buzz Aldrin: No, sir. We’re not alone.

 

If the above events are true, it must have been very difficult for Armstrong to keep official silence about what he really saw on the moon for over four decades. Perhaps that explains his reclusive nature after the lunar missions, and public reticence in describing his personal experiences on the moon. If so, he remained true to his word and kept silence despite any personal reservations to the contrary. Neil Armstrong was an American Patriot to the end.
