Does the U.S. government classify UFO’s “Above Top Secret”?

The level of secrecy imposed by the U.S. government on the UFO issue is revealed in this Top Secret memorandum written by electronics engineer Wilbert Smith, a high-ranking official in the Canadian Department of Transport. Smith wrote the memo in November of 1950 after a meeting with Dr. Robert Sarbacher, a top government scientist employed by the Pentagon.

 smithWilbert Smith was a senior radio engineer with the Broadcast and Measurements Section of the Department of Transport. He was responsible for the engineering aspects of all matters concerning the use of radio in Canada. Smith had a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and held a number of patents.

After Smith sent his Top Secret memo to the Controller of Telecommunication, the Canadian government started its own official investigation into the UFO phenomenon. Launched on December 2nd, 1950, it was called Project Magnet. Wilbert Smith ran the classified project for the four years that it was operational.

In a 1983 phone interview with Stanton Friedman, Dr. Robert Sarbacher confirmed that he had spoken to Wilbert Smith in 1950. Dr. Sarbacher operated a laboratory that was used for various military tests. The lab was located near the Canadian Embassy in Washington.

confirmed that he had spoken to Wilbert Smith in 1950. Dr. Sarbacher operated a laboratory that was used for various military tests. The lab was located near the Canadian Embassy in Washington.

Dr. Sarbacher claimed that prior to his conversation with Smith, he was invited to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for a briefing on the recovery of a flying saucer in western United States. In a letter dated November 29, 1983, he talked openly about his involvement in investigating material recovered from a UFO. He wrote: “… certain materials reported to have come from flying saucer crashes were extremely light and very tough. I am sure our laboratories analyzed them very carefully.” Dr. Sarbacher concluded the letter by saying: “I still do not know why the high order of classification has been given and why the denial of the existence of these devices.”

Did the official investigation into UFOs prove or disprove their existence?

The investigation was published as theScientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects. Dr.Edward Condon’s conclusions are still being cited by the U.S. Air Force as an excuse to prevent further official scientific investigation.
Out of 63 cases investigated, 29% remain unexplained to this day.

 

In October of 1966, ~~ was selected by U.S. Air Force to head a $500,000 study about Unidentified Flying Objects. In an effort to maintain a neutral investigation it was assigned to the University of Colorado.

The University gathered a team of 11 eminent scientists. They were to analyze and make public their conclusions of the most compelling UFO cases.

Although conventional or natural explanations certainly cannot be ruled out, the probability of such seems low in this case and the probability that at least one genuine UFO was involved appears to be fairly high.

Colorado Springs, Colorado

This must remain as one of the most puzzling radar cases on record, and no conclusion is possible at this time.

Case 46:

McMinnville, Oregon
May 11, 1950
This is one of the few UFO reports in which all factors investigated — geometric, psychological, and physical — appear to be consistent with the assertion that an extraordinary flying object, silvery, metallic, disk-shaped, tens of meters in diameter, and evidently artificial, flew within sight of two witnesses.

MacMinville2_smallWhile the panel of scientist conducted an objective investigation, the project leaders appeared biased and ignored the data. Dr. Condon stated that nothing has come from the study of UFOs that has added to scientific knowledge. Some Thoughts on the UFO Project by Robert J. Low

The memo was written on August 9, 1966, by project coordinator Robert Low, the key operations man in the study. Before the $500,000 contract was even signed, Low stated to Colorado University officials that:

“… Our study would be conducted almost exclusively by nonbelievers who, although they couldn’t possibly prove a negative result, could and probably would add an impressive body of evidence that there is no reality to the observations. The trick would be, I think, to describe the project so that, to the public, it would appear a totally objective study but, to the scientific community, would present the image of a group of nonbelievers trying their best to be objective, but having an almost zero expectation of finding a saucer. One way to do this would be to stress investigation, not of the physical phenomena, but rather of the people who do the observing—the psychology and sociology of persons or groups who report seeing UFO’s. If the emphasis were put here, rather than on examination of the old question of the physical reality of the saucer, I think the scientific community would quickly get the message…. I’m inclined to feel at this early stage that, if we set up things right an take pains to get the proper people involved and have success in presenting the image we want to present to the scientific community, we could carry the job off to our benefit….”

The investigation was published as the Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Object.
Dr. Condon’s conclusions are still being cited by the U.S. Air Force as an excuse to prevent further official scientific investigation.

Is the U.S. Air Force hiding the truth about UFOs?

General Nathan Twining’s Memo: Is the U.S. Air Force hiding the truth about UFOs?

RoswellThe Data Section showcases documents and photographs that could not be fully presented in the film because of inherent constraints of the medium. The section also provides further background on the persons and events that generated this extensive Paper Trail.

The official U.S. Air Force statement was that the debris recovered from the Roswell crash on July 8, 1947, was just a “Weather Balloon.” However, a secret memorandum written by General Nathan Twining on September 23, 1947, suggests otherwise.

TwiningMemoClip[click here to see complete memo]

General Nathan F. Twining was appointed commanding general of the Air Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in December of 1945. He remained there until October 1, 1947.

General Nathan F. TwiningGeneral Twining was sworn in as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff by President Eisenhower on August 15, 1957. This made General Twining the senior military adviser to the president, the secretary of defense and the National Security Council.

It is alleged that General Twining was a member of Majestic 12, the small group of high-level officials headed by Dr. Vannevar Bush that was in charge of UFO recovery.

UFOs and J. Edgar Hoover: Was the head of the FBI refused access to the disc recovered at Roswell?

USArmy_NewsClipIn the summer of 1947, numerous UFOs were spotted by local authorities, airline pilots and civilians world wide. By July these sightings made headlines in newspapers all across the United States, culminating on the 8th of July with the alleged recovery of a crashed disk on a ranch near Roswell New Mexico. J. Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI, was urged to investigate these matters.

Hoover_memo

The memo states: I would do it but before agreeing to it we must insist upon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the La. case the Army grabbed it & wouldn’t let us have it for cursory examination.

UFOs and Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars”:

DSPSatelliteThe Defense Support Program (DSP) satellites were a series of infrared sensors orbiting 22,000 miles above the earth. The first satellite was launched in November of 1970. Originally DSP was intended to provide early warning of a Soviet ICBM launch. Over the decades the satellite has been upgraded to provide several types of technical intelligence that would be hard to get any other way.Ronald_Reagan

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan revived missile defense with his Strategic Defense Initiative. Commonly known as “Star Wars,” SDI was a program of vigorous research focused on advanced defensive technologies with the aim of finding ways to provide a better basis for deterring aggression, strengthening stability, and increasing the security of the United States.

reaganRonald Reagan was the first President of the United States to talk openly about the possibility of an alien invasion from outer space. On five separate occasions, Reagan made references to an outside alien threat and the unifying effect it would have on us all. One such reference was made in September 1987 while addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations. Towards the end of his speech the President said: “Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond.” Reagan continued, “I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask is not an alien force already among us?” Reagan then backpedaled from the statement by asking another question: “What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?”
