Do you think the US Government knows more than it's telling about UFO's? by Tony Garcia
Answer by Tony Garcia:
I can understand your reticence to reveal your identity. No one wants to be held to ridicule, especially by some of the more dogmatic respondents here.
There have been books written by reputable sources, such as Phillip Corso, who aver that our current technologies have an alien origin. One’s level of belief in this depends upon one’s level of skepticism.
There are also the postulations of scientists and researchers, like Jacques Vallee and John Mack, respectively, who argue that there is evidence of an unknown phenomena here but that it is not a question of interstellar travelers, rather one of time and space—and the real possibility of a more terrestrial origin. (Astrophysicist Jacques Vallee recounts how the Watergate investigations revealed a plan by President Richard Nixon and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to project holographic images of Jesus Christ onto low-flying cloud formations off the coast of Cuba to make the citizenry believe there was to be an imminent “second coming”—all this as part of a coup attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro.)
However, as far as the U.S. government’s position on UFO’s is concerned, one must take into account the 1960 recommendations of the Brookings Institute, who were asked to study the social, economic, political, legal, and international implications of the use of space for peaceful and scientific purposes.
Brookings issued a report, Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs, by Donald N. Michael, that postulated on the response of the American people should there be contact with extraterrestrials or evidence of their existence—such as structures on the moon.
The Report advised the government to withhold any evidence of extraterrestrial contact from the public.
