PBS broadcast: Dick Cheney Comment on UFO's

41 posts in this topic

So for him to be briefed to begin with says it cant have been a casual 'oh and by the way UFOs...we dont know what they are??? so what? you havent for over 60 years why would he be briefed to this affect?

If there were a group dedicated and tasked to continue research into UFO's then Cheney could have simply been briefed with a classified status report which need not necessarily contain any revelations on the matter. Or, it could very well be that the government has given up on chasing UFO's since they state that they deem them 'not a threat' and Cheney may have simply been speaking tongue in cheek.

It doesn't matter what reply he gave. Believers will find evidence in nearly everything regardless. The skeptics will still search for scientific evidence that may not even exist. Debunkers will just poo on everything.

ok this is true, although I feel should this be the case then it is still quite important, dont you think? that investigation still continues.....secretely.

Indeed, I think that the public should be aware of at the very least that an investigation is still going on, if it is still going on. As far as full disclosure of any findings? I don't know. I'm all for government transparency however I know it is a difficult task to balance that and national security. Without being privy to the details of what exactly the government may or may not know then hard lining either stance is pretty much arbitrary.

To be honest I agree with all you have said there. However, from the point of view of a person with 'interest' in the subject...I want to know all, especially the details :)

I assume you dont think Blue book wrapped it all up years ago?

oh dear, don't tell me you still imagine that that might be a possibility?

To be honest I don't know but that's the thing, anybody without access to top secret government information doesn't actually 'know' either. It is interesting to investigate and ponder over though with decades of supposed secrecy and not a single solid bit of anything alien does tend to favor the possibility that the government may have moved on from taking supposed threats by 'little green men' seriously.

I just noticed your edit CR. :D

I know people love c2c but i listened it too once and never again... that is similar to alex jones fantasy factory. People are saying disclosure is happening all around us .. disclosure of what exactly?

Words are not enough for subject of such magnitude, one would need a very very constructive presentation of various material regarding different aspects of this disclosure/s.

I certainly remember Watergate. People can obey an order to not tell certain things, in a number of ways. They can simply lie about what they know (denial). They can also produce an answer so ambiguous that it can be interpreted variously, and so doesn't amount to an explicit (forbidden) admission. One can still read between the lines a bit, and get at least a sense of the true situation.

Or misinterpret everything. After all, the intention is to deceive.

True, the government has pretty much denied any further investigation into UFO's and the torch has been taken up by private groups, being unsatisfied with the 'lackluster' data released by the government. I can envision a government run 'black' program to further study the phenomenon though, especially with the case of atmospheric plasma. Such phenomena could have a military application and research into them could be sensitive enough to keep under wraps. But then again it could just be me wearing my conspiratorial hat today... ^_^

Reporter to Cheney: "Have you even been briefed on the existance of ET UFO's?"

Cheney to reporter: "That's a good question and I would like to state that I feel all supermarkets should carry fresh produce"

yup, but then again, if the govt releases classified info, and that is a big if, then that would be something positive to show that 'yes, we did investigate it, there is nothing to it'... but we know that's not gonna happen... i guess one could say that what has happened instead after taking such a move i.e. passing the public handling of the ufo inquiry into private hands is that it has become unaccountable to foia and will not be bothered with what is being reported, as they already have their own surveillance assets, etc... but will that data be released to the pvt orgs? idk... but i agree with you about the classified plasma research / military applications... :)

"Well, if I had been briefed on it, I'm sure it was probably classified and I couldn't talk about it."

Names like Rumsfeld and Cheney were in the know. As Rumsfeld famously put it to Hynek "you don't have a need to know."

That tells you those behind the cover-up are not the good guys.
