Tom Rogan, a foreign policy commentator, published an excellent article in the Washington Examiner, giving his opinion on why the US government is afraid to talk about UFOs.
Two years ago, on Sunday, the New York Times released the impressive story of a secret Pentagon program to study unidentified flying objects. This story led me to plunge into this strange world. I have learned some interesting things about UFOs (‘unidentified aerial phenomena’ or ‘UAPs’, as the Pentagon refers to them) ever since. But there is a problem.
The US government makes it very difficult to figure out what and where things related to UFOs are happening.
Is it because the government is behind some major conspiracy to cover up the evidence of alien visitation to Earth? It would be because the government is conspiring with exotic species to create human-alien hybrids?
Maybe, but I suspect not.
What I believe is really happening here is that the few individuals in the US government who know about this believe the phenomenon could be a threat. And that they don’t know how to handle it.
So what fuels the fear of government?
Well, first the nuclear issue.
If you ask a Pentagon representative about a specific UFO incident, as I did recently last week, you will get a boring answer such as:
Our airmen train while fighting. Any intrusions that may compromise the security of our operations, tactics, or procedures are of great concern. As the investigation of sightings of unidentified air phenomena is ongoing, we will not discuss individual sighting reports or observations.
When it speaks of ‘airmen’, the Pentagon refers to the specific frequency with which UFOs tend to interact with US naval airmen operating from aircraft carriers. But what the Pentagon is leaving out is because UFOs tend to come across these naval airmen. And this is essential for why the Pentagon is concerned about UFOs.
Although they don’t admit it, the government’s assessment is that UFOs are emerging near aircraft carriers because they are powered by nuclear power. Also note that UFOs like to appear near nuclear submarines and Air Force bases. Now recognize that this paradigm has been going on since the Manhattan Project operations in Los Alamos, New Mexico, and also at nuclear facilities in the Soviet Union and Russia.
Oh, and how Robert Hastingsd ocumented, these UFOs sometimes temporarily shut down US nuclear weapons systems. Interesting, right?
Now, remember what I just said: The modern UFO phenomenon really happens at exactly the same time as the Manhattan Project. Has the perfection of humanity’s nuclear energy aroused the curiosity of anyone or anything in us?
Do not misunderstand me.
This is not to say that these UFOs are hostile (although it should be noted that the divergent UFO forms, behaviors and ability patterns suggest more than one source of origin). On the contrary, UFOs seem to be quite friendly, except when badly advised Russian crews try to attack them.
But pretend you are a military or intelligence officer.
You see the nuclear connection point and get hit by something strange happening. Now add to the core issue that some UFOs are intelligently operated machines capable of instantly achieving hypersonic speeds. Oh, and they are also capable of anti-gravity and invisibility, and were tracked in and out of Earth’s orbit, atmosphere and underwater. Suddenly you have something that is making the most advanced capabilities of the US military and all other military personnel on Earth seem like an absurd joke in comparison.
You get an unpleasant conclusion: If whatever is controlling these things is meant to harm us, we have no chance.
Once again, put yourself in the shoes of the military officer. Something has repeatedly demonstrated that they can easily find carrier strike groups, designed and operated to be hidden in the distant oceans, and find nuclear ballistic missile submarines running almost silently deep in the water. Something can penetrate the most protected areas of the most important areas of the US military and render our most critical deterrent platforms useless. For Pentagon planners, this is Armageddon level stuff.
But the truth is clear: if ‘they’ wanted to, they could defeat the United States without breaking a sweat.
The extent is that even if the US government believes, as it believes, that these UFOs are not Chinese or Russian, disclosing the issue itself risks another danger. That is, if the US shares what it knows about UFOs, China or Russia (the Russian government has long been interested in UFOs) can learn enough to replicate the technologies behind UFOs themselves. And since these technologies are almost certainly built around space-time manipulation, if Beijing or Moscow finds out before the US, we have a pretty big problem.
This is not to say that the US government is idle. Whatever you think about claims of people like Bob Lazar, which claims to have worked on crashed UFOs in Area 51, and I am not convinced of its history, civilian and military government agencies maintain active programs to determine the source, capabilities and intent of the UFOs. In fact, at least some UFO material accident is in the hands of the US government.
Just don’t count on the military to share more of what you already know soon. Your understanding of professional phenomena and instincts weighs heavily toward more secrecy.
And the politicians?
President Trump admitted to being informed about UFOs, and Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama probably were. Interestingly, when asked about it, the two former presidents end up joking. But since they have few good answers, they probably believe there is no point in scaring people and creating social norms without a solution.
Where does this leave us?
Well, with the need to keep pushing that issue. But also with confidence. It will take time, but we will get to the truth eventually. After all, UFOs keep popping up. And considering their ability to hide, there is only one obvious answer to why they let themselves be seen.
At least sometimes, they want to be seen.
