Comment: In recent weeks, thousands of pages of the US Air Force’s investigation into UFO’s have been released and published on the web. And seemingly separately, the CIA has released thousands of declassified documents as well. As part of this possibly coordinated pseudo-disclosure, the information gleaned from the CIA release (below) is as interesting for what it says as for what it doesn’t say.
Details of the shocking plan are buried in once top secret Central Intelligence Service (CIA) UFO files now published on the agency’s website.
The potential weapon was discussed in a memo from Marshall Chadwell, assistant director of Scientific Intelligence, to General Walter Bedell Smith, CIA Director of Central Intelligence, which was sent in October 1952, when the CIA was deeply involved in investigating the UFO and flying saucer phenomena following an explosion in sightings.
The memo was sent at the height of the Cold War and considered if the number of UFO sightings could be predicted or controlled or, more sinisterly, even “used from a psychological warfare point of view, either offensively or defensively”.
It said studies showed public concern, not just in the US but wider, with the phenomena, was so strong that many people may be pre-conditioned to accept the incredible as being true.
The memo added that news of potential alien activity had the potential to spark mass hysteria and panic.
Since 1947, the Air technical Intelligence Centre, had received 1,500 official sighting reports, plus more from the public and press.
In July 1952 there were 250 reports, and of all sightings 20 per cent remained unexplainable.
With so many sightings happening there was a danger of false alarms for real military invasions from the Soviet Union, or worse still, real attacks being misinterpreted as “phantom” UFOs, the memo said.
The report added: “Immediate steps should be taken to improve identification of both visual and electronic phantom so that, in the event of an attack, instant and positive identification of enemy planes or missiles can be made.
“A study should be instituted to determine what, if any, utilisation could be made of these phenomena by United States psychological warfare planners.”
The paranoia of the Cold War was evident in the memo, which spoke of fears of a Soviet plot to use fear of UFOs against the US public.
The memo added it would need to establish “what, if any, defences should be planned in anticipation of Soviet plans to utilise them”.
Mr Chadwell continued: “Other intelligence problems which require determination are: possible Soviet intentions and capabilities to utilise these phenomena to the detriment of United States security interests.”
The memo also asked for a probe into how much the Soviet Union knew about UFOs, and the reason behind why there was never any mention of aliens or flying saucers in Russian media.
Mr Chadwell signed off his memo adding: “I consider this problem to be of such importance that it should be brought to the attention of the National Security Council, in order that a community-wide coordinated effort towards its solution may be initiated.”
It is not clear from the releases what further work was done in these areas, but there are not thought to be any cases on record of either the US or Soviet Union using UFO fears in any form of attack, defence or psychological warfare.
However, the disclosure will likely fuel ongoing conspiracy theories which claim the US military and intelligence services maintain a strong interest in the phenomena.
One such theory is that the US was planning to initiate a “false flag” incident using hologram technology to stage a fake alien invasion as a way of introducing Marshall (sic) Law or other controls on the public.
Comment: They don’t need to take such risks of hologram technology not working properly, today all they have to do is murder a bunch more people 911-style and pin it on ISIS. Easy as pie, and all too many continue to fall for it.
There are also conspiracies surrounding the government’s High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program.
It was a US military scientific project which has spawned even more conspiracies than the Large Hadron Collider.
It was established by the US Air Force to study the Earth’s ionosphere – a highly charged and active part of the upper atmosphere.
But many conspiracists always claimed it was a cover for secretive tests to control the weather or even to research “captured UFO technology” or create a false flag hologram.
The air force ended the project in 2014, but some claim it continues.
UFO buffs maintain a strong interest in the mysterious top-secret Area 51 military base in the Nevada desert, where it is claimed all evidence of alien visitation of Earth is kept and engineers use recovered alien technology to boost their own.
The CIA has previously said it no longer has an interest in the UFO phenomena, as no real national security threat was ever identified.
Comment: The recently released memo suggests a few things that seem important to note:
1. U.S. intelligence agencies have been thinking about how to use false flag-style psychological warfare on U.S. citizens (and people of other nations) for literally decades. Operation Northwoods, from 1962, is another case in point. And all the many more recent false flag attacks, of course.
2. Despite the recent pseudo-disclosures that suggest “nothing’s happening here” there was a time when various elements of the U.S. government were very interested in the UFO phenomenon. And everyone knows it, even if there is official denial about it now.
3. Leaving the UFO dimension out of it, the U.S. intelligence agencies seem just as obsessed with the so-called “Russian threat” today, as they were then. Not much has changed in their paranoid and pathological drive to defeat the manufactured enemy.
4. The understanding “that news of potential alien activity had the potential to spark mass hysteria and panic” is the very reason why real Disclosure will never happen through official channels. Ignorance breeds docility until it no longer serves the purposes of the controllers.
5. The U.S. government’s exploring a plan to fake an alien invasion does not preclude the very real possibility of an authentic one occurring. Though one could well argue that the ‘advance team’ – in the form of psychopaths destroying our planet – seems to be paving the way…
