“you who’ve done nothing... but build to destroy... you played with my world like your little toy…Bob Dylan
You’re a CIA counter-spy. Your mission: disinformation that must be sold to your Russian counterpart.
No one outside a chosen few know what you really do. Not your wife, not even your commander when you were in the service. No one.
You’ve been trained well, so well you easily pass a polygraph. As for sincerity, you could win an Academy Award. It’s all about Believability. That’s why you were picked, after all.
By the end of the day, the Russian buys it. In fact, the Russian buys everything you had to say and all the documents you produced. You know the Russians will be chasing their tails for months, burning through key resources on a well-developed wild goose chase. Wearing out the opposition by making them spend too much, that’s just your secondary objective. Your prime objective is accomplished, too: keep your opponent from learning The Greater Truth, the real state of affairs.
I believe UFO researchers are being had. The UFO researchers I’m talking about here are some of the best and brightest, the most dedicated. They’re spreading countless hours with whistleblowers of all kinds. Start with Linda Moulton Howe: Linda has a new insider leak every few months. Then there’s the Camelot group, Exopolitics, with their whistleblower, and don’t forget the Disclosure Project, with their whistleblowers and many different leaks. Whitley Strieber and nearly every other UFO researcher has a favorite whistle blower. Not all of the whistleblowers are saying the same thing.
Then there’s this stuff:
The Theories abound;http://hubpages.com/hub/UFOsandAliens
on and on, ad infinitum.
Mister X, an anonymous whistle blower claiming to be involved in the defense industry was interviewed decades ago, and his statements were certainly shocking:
“He claimed that, back in the 1980s, he was employed by a California defense contractor as an archivist. Working long hours in a locked vault, he opened large mail bags full of photos, videotapes, alien artifacts, and volumes of top secret eyes-only documents that told the story behind Roswell, alien visitation and the government's careful handling of what was documented evidence of reverse engineering of alien craft.”
Mr. X may have indeed been telling the truth. The real tragedy is, we will never know. I am not going to debate with you on who’s telling the truth. Instead, I have to ask you: who is lying?
How many researchers who interview the whistle blowers claim these informants are sincere? In the end, what we can definitely say we have are a bunch of sincere researchers reporting on sincere whistleblowers who claim they are privy to a hundred different projects within our government. One whistle blower points this way, another that way. They may have verifiable backgrounds that back their stories…so?
Interesting how, on any given day, these leaks seem to confirm --or affirm-- most of the theories championed by major factions in the UFO community. Got a particular take on what UFOs mean to humankind’s religious development? There already is, or soon will be, a leak to affirm that stance. It’s all very convenient, and for me, it represents a kind of patronizing assurance.
Other whistleblowers divide their loyalties, they cherry pick what’s already out there among the UFO factions and communities, claiming all the other theories are wrong.
Some may point at their faction’s whistle blower and say they were persecuted or that their phones were tapped. Doesn’t this prove the government is trying to suppress it, they insist?
No, not at all. The government is just as likely to persecute an innocent person just to send the media and investigators on dead-end investigations. Of course there are good leaks, but when you have a whistleblower claiming to be a privy to the prime insider information, including sitting with presidents and so on, you have to say WHOA! STOP! I’ve got to say I need something besides just this one individual’s very personal claim.
So I think we don’t really take into consideration just how long the intelligence community has had to develop their counter measures on this issue. Yes, there were leaks in the beginning, particularly with pilots, that checked out as 100% verifiable. But apparently even Keyhoe was never able to know about the Roswell secret.
I still don’t know who is really in control of the world. I’m sure the people over there at Rense know… because hey, don’t anarchists know everything?
Frank Feschino, Jr., Stanton Friedman protégée, is writing some great books, like Shoot Them Down: The Flying Saucer Air Wars Of 1952. Feschino is doing a fine job examining old documents. We also have Tim Good and Nick Redfern, all researching old government documents. Even the UFO TV shows are upgrading their investigations a bit.
I love it all, but how far can whistleblowing go toward actual, verifiable proof?
Even a very dumb government intelligence organization has had enough time to bury any smoking guns by now.
The time, effort, and confusion that comes out of these leaks, I just have to wonder if it’s worth it.
And why all this really makes me upset is the rarity of in-depth coverage of the day to day UFO experiences happening to witnesses right now.
How many of these interesting reports just show up as blurbs in the local newspaper?
MUFON does not have enough investigators. New York City has, I think, just two. I’m proud to announce that one investigator just passed the test, and I know about her because she attended my NY UFO Meeting Group. MUFON presented, we met at the training, and she is now a MUFON investigator.
This trend to find the secret behind the secret takes over every UFO conference. Some of you are fans of that approach, you love it. You can find these Secret Behind The Secret factionalists debating which Ultimate Theory Of UFOs is most valid. Are they all true?
Buyer beware: isn’t there at least a solid chance that the top people in government intelligence are smarter than UFO researchers?

One of the greatest spies who ever lived was a man playing a woman. I wonder how many intelligent people never knew?
Any researcher who thinks they can’t be fooled lacks humility. Books on who is really in control abound. Take your pick: most of them have some fairly convincing documentation that seems to back up their claim.
Outside in the real world, there are thousand of UFO true stories to be told right now. There are places where primary encounters are being experienced on an ongoing basis. How many man/woman hours are being spent, chasing down these leads to... nowhere?
