Files shed light on MoD UFO desk closure

Oh. OK. I humbly apologise for making such an unwarranted assumption. What you did say was:

I get the fact that you believe in all that and it is all related in your view.. so .. what is your explanation?

No disrespect but from only a few words you seem to make a lot of assumptions and seem to jump to conclusions. I do not "believe in all that". Well yes I believe there are crop circles, although I do not believe that that is a matter of belief. Same goes for the rest. Do I believe they are related? The way I would put it, I consider that possibility. What is my explanation? Who am I to have one? And why would you or anyone want to know MY explanation or take my word for it? All I have is opinions, although based on a lot of research yet mostly biased, same as everyone else. For all I know, they can be part of a big secret government project. All those who claim to channel messages, all those that make crop circles, all those who use tools working on suppressed tech, they can be working for a government or even private agency whose agenda is to make people believe in ufos, or even just divide the population to fragment it even further as if religion wasn't enough so we are more easily controllable. Or they are related and it's aliens. How would I know? I know one thing for sure though: Not all the evidence in the world is enough to prove one way or another. One side can always cry conspiracy, the other can cry cover-up. The more seeming evidence, the more sophisticated theories and methods needed to explain either way but the spectrum is endless as human imagination is endless. Flat-earthers are serious folks with serious and elaborate explanations for the seeming roundness of the Earth. If you want to explain something away you will, and will even convince others, or at least make them think and wonder. Who cares who believes what? No one knows and everyone believes what they want. No explanations, sorry. Did I say anything new here? I don't think so.

The more I hear about the little MOD UFO room and Nick Pope, the less I believe. It sounded feasible at first then more information came out and it seemed less and less likely.

Forget about ET for the moment. Are they trying to tell us that ever intrusion into UK airspace by an Object that cannot be quickly identified was passed on to a man working in a small office in the MOD?

This at a time when the use of drones etc was hugely increasing. Doesn't make sense to me.

It made a lot of sense to the MOD though, as you say though "forget about ET" which is exactly what they did, since they weren't looking into space, they were looking East.

Bare in mind that this was formed some 50 yrs ago....public reports of ufo's (and a dedicated desk to investigate them) is a great way to get an idea of what you might be missing in terms of what is entering our air space uninvited, but you also have the added bonus of seeing which of your own toys is being spotted by the public, and how they are being reported and perceived.

90 percent of all sighting reported were found to have natural or earthly explanations...the one's that were not gave them some insight into what they might be missing...

As it has been confirmed in the Disclosure project and the 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, these craft, whatever their origin, are capable of disabling dozens of nuclear missiles simultaneously.

No, UFO's cannot do that, you are quoting hearsay as though fact. That is what those so called projects have stated yes, but that does not make these very loose and wild (and outright incorrect) claims "confirmed" in any way shape or form. It's a bunch of enthusiasts telling each other what they want to hear and highlighting any credentialed participant in a grab for credibility.

They have been documented to do so mid-air as well.

They have not been documented doing any such thing, and I fail to see what the Mid Air position has to add to this claim? If the alleged aliens had landed at least we might have CCTV footage. Much less impressive to be doing this by remote control. I think Julian Assange would be yawing at the so called impressive hacking abilities. Not like these old computer systems were highly complex.

The accounts are numerous and confirmed by a high number of military personnel, retired and active, high ranking and low-ranking.

And denied by the same, and the case of the alleged Echo Flight Shutdown, Eric Carlson, who sat at the very desk during the alleged incident came here to UM along with Robert Hastings and asked in general why non of these UFO people have spoken to him, who would be crucial to the claim. Not to mention some questions from UM member Leonardo seem to have instigated a rather quick exit on the behalf of Mr Hastings who it appears was unable to assist him with his in depth queries. LINK

In addition to all this, Tim Herbert, a former SAC missile crew commander and staff officer, also came here to UM and showed us what the wiring configuration of the misiles at these silos actually was, and it rendered Hastings argument invalid immediately. The faults that Hastings say brought the system down travelled upon imaginary cables. The claim falls apart technically, no matter how much his sock puppet Salas nods his head up and down.

James Carlson (Erics son) also has a free E Book outlining the actual situation much more precisely. LINK

And the MoD says they are not a threat.

Is there any reason to think otherwise? This phenomena has been with us for a long time, longer than most imagine I would say, and apart from some ball lightning deaths due to proximity, I know of no threat posed by UFO's in the last 60 years.

Edgar Mitchell who believes people who believe in ET says these alleged aliens are not a threat as well. Why woud any of this be a concern to the MoD?

And I'm sure these can be explained away as natural phenomena. You know what? Call them natural, I don't care, these are labels we like to stick on stuff.

They do have a purpose, as there seems to be two types of believer from what I see. One borrows credibility from the other. One group is sensible, and really trying to understand what is happening here, and one is credulous and just want personal validation of their own fantasies and quick cash for some. They are also distinctly different in training, making the credible people such as Professor Hawking, or Michio Kaku worth listening to and putting the redneck who was abducted for sex into perspective. There is no getting around the very fact that the idea of aliens draws kooks like moths to a flame.

Point is, there is something going on and it needs further investigations, because the bottom line is, and let's be honest and humble here for a change, we don't understand what's going on, what or who they are, why they are here, why they do the things they do, how they do it, etc.

Not sure where the "they" is coming from, particularly when you resign the description to natural phenomena above. ??

It is true we do not understand a large part of the UFO phenomena, and claims like Betty and Barney Hill will never be completely resolved as far as science is concerned, as too little information exists. But we are uncovering bits and pieces, the MoD not too long ago officially announced that the Plasma studies begun by Phillip Klass in the 50's were a valid explanation for at least part of the phenomena, and it is interesting to note that this important research has been held back for decades specifically by the UFOlogist contingent. Again the two types of believers come into the field of pay, and in this case, one drew so much credibility fro the other, that real results were held back and everyone was held at a disadvantage for "UFO"so called research. All it accomplished was highlighting some personal alien fantasies from people who really ought to be a bit more mature.

Bottom line I think is people like the team investigating the Hessdalen Phenomena, or Professor Jack Pettigrew are indeed taking on what fringe has given a bad name with a professional attitude. And the headway is going to only be slowed by the slow thinking UFOlogists who are still trying to assign nothing more than modern Gods to explain that which they do not understand.

You can't keep shouting swamp gas and weather balloons all the time, coupled with mass hallucinations and mental problems, and ignore all the abductions, mutilations, radiation, multiple radar tracks, foreign materials with weird properties,

Can you prove those conclusions wrong? That is the place to start, not complaining that you do not like them. All that does is allow ebil gummit pack mentality with no actual information.

and now this Atacama humanoid,

I am taking this as a joke. Surely you jest. Surely. This ten year old decidedly human artefact is in no way new, or alien, at all. All that is new about it is the hype spun up to drive up more Greer funding. This is merely yet anther example of the very worst that UFOlogy has to offer.

not to mention crop circles and the like.

In all the crop circle threads that have surfaced here, I am yet to see how this nonsense ties into ET. They are easy to make, and man has made them and provided overnight examples. Crop circles are not ET related, and that statement cannot be challenged. I dare anyone to do so. The only current thread on them is a shambles and has provided more proof of mans involvement than anything else.

If it was one or two of these then the alternative explanations (in this case the natural ones) could be considered a possibility, but all this stuff all together? You can't just ignore the testimonies of all these jet fighters and nuclear silo military officers.

Why not? The ones who say it is not in ay way ET are avoided like the plague, why not ignore the ignoramus statements that are technically impossible and contradict other claims of direct witnesses/participants?

The credulity of a claim seems to be in proportion with the belief factor for some. The crazier a story, the more some want it to be true. Whilst that might be human nature, nature supplied us with common sense and rationality as well. I feel obliged to use them myself.

Ben Rich wasn't exaggerating.

No he was not, we most certainly did have the means to take ET home as far back as the late 50's and early 60's. Within reason of course. Even 10x light speed wont help you see the far side of the Universe. The Orion Project incorporating Nuclear propulsion is to date still the best design for interstellar travel. This is no secret however, one just needs to make oneself more aware of our space history. It might get us to Alpha Centauri in 40-60 years, however the project is recognised to have been terminated b the nuclear test ban treaty. You know, the one that France, Korea and Vietnam violated.

I'm glad you brought that up. However it saddens me to see people being so gullible as to believe that these recording technologies are set up in a way that they will tell us everything we want to know about UFOs. If you HAD done any research you would've found out that all this "too much science and good recording technology" is set up in a very specific way. To give you a clue I recommend you watch a video in which Senator Bartlett and Congressman Cook ask FAA's John Callahan and USAF's Maj. George Filer: Hope this helps a little.

How about going backwards a step then, with all the RADAR traces of the alleged UFO's, why has not one ever been traced as entering or leaving the atmosphere, let alone the solar system? Every UFO RADAR track in existence shows a decidedly terrestrial trajectory. Should a space ship not go into space at some point? The closest thing we have to this description is the WOW! signal, indicating that if something came from space, it would not be such a guessing game.

I thought it interesting that...

So when an area needs more people to help investigate phenomena/reports, the better thing to do is close it down?

I would just guess at "a more appropriate department" might be the idea here.

OK, if one is hell bent on toeing the Hastings/Salas line, at least get some modicum of facts straight in support of this fantasy.

From Scudbuster:

In particular, Google Capt Robert Salas's testimony, IIRC he was the OIC at the launch site

:

No, Salas was not the OIC (Officer in Charge), that would have been Frederick Meiwald, and Salas was a 1st Lt at the time of the alleged encounter and was considered "second in command" as Meiwald's deputy.

From Spiritwalker:

Very interesting replies to say the least. And some replies with such vehement emotion! I did find a very interesting televised event on YouTube from a show from Larry King debating this very topic and most interestingly a video of an UFO disabling a test rocket launched from Malmstrom U.S. Air Force base. If any wishes to see the "evidence" look up "Best Larry King UFO Debate Ever Pt. 1 7/18/08". It is without a doubt the very best debate I, myself, have ever seen. It is a five part video with the most notable so called UFO geeks and scientists. No matter what side of the fence you set on I think anyone will finish watching these with a different frame of mind. I hope those of us who so quick to judge will be as quick to watch the evidence.

A UFO disabling at test launch from Malmstrom? Seriously? No such thing ever occurred, as there has never been a test launch from any operational ICBM from an actual alert facility in the history of the US ICBM force. It was proposed numerous times, but due to political pressure (local, state, and federal) never was carried out.

True, there were numerous test launches out of Vandenberg AFB, where operational ICBMs were pulled from an actual alert missile silo for Follow-on Test and Evaluation programs. Hastings tried to play one of these test shots as proof that a UFO had interfered/intercepted a Minuteman in-flight over the Pacific, but I "shot" his theory/fantasy down in a series of comments on The UFO Chronicles. I'll be happy to supply that exchange if people have interests.

Ah - who cares if he was the NCOIC, OIC, 1st Lt, a 2nd loeuy or a visiting Lt. General? He was there, his testimony is on record, I've seen it numerous times.

And you? - you weren't there.

You seemed to care by your attempt to elevate Salas to a position that he didn't have. Which testimony are you referring to? He has had different versions of the night in question. His own crew commander couldn't, or wouldn't, verify what Salas' claims to have happen.

Oh, I'm betting that you were not there either. :yes:

And technically, neither was Salas. He was 90 feet underground...and saw nothing.

There were others on that site, at least 8 individuals. They've never come forward to verify Mr. Salas' claims. Don't you find that interesting if not giving you some degree of suspicion? Or, are you the type that will buy, hook, line, and sinker, any claims that supports your fantasy with out ascertaining some sliver of fact?

The others like Eric Carlson who were there and siad that Salas is full of crap. I woud suggest you shave a look why Walt Figel was ousted from Hasting 2010 conference when even though Walt was less then ten miles from the location, and offered to give his testimony.

I woud say they care, because they were indeed there, and they know Salas is full of crap, and is making up stuff. Tim might not have been at that actual site at the time like Eric and Walt, but you do realise that Tim is indeed a former SAC missile crew commander??

What you have done is cherry pick one lone testimony over others that contradict it. Not to mention that technical details such the the wires that the alleged fault "hopped" along did not exist, so it woud seem that Salas actually knows less about the overall situation than Tim does.

Alright, let's start off fresh here and my apologies for sounding abrasive. First off there is no link concerning "these other people" because "they" have never come forward to provide any form of substance to Salas' claim. Salas had been asked about this problem, but never had a coherent answer why these individuals never came forward.

Why do I know that there were other people? At each topside alert facility (Launch Control Facility, now days, Missile Alert Facility) there would be 8 individuals on site ( 2 Flight Security Controllers, 4 Armed Response personnel, Facility Manager, and site cook). Salas' story hinges on one of the FSCs calling in a report that a UFO is hovering in front of the LCF's entry gate and that one of the security personnel was injured.

To this day, these individuals have never come forward to corroborate the story, though they certainly where there. It's the identity of "they" that is one of the burning questions. And...there is no supporting evidence that anyone was injured and taken off the site to seek medical attention.

I don't know how much of this case that you have researched, but there are numerous inconsistencies in Mr. Salas' story. These inconsistencies have evolved over time. I have highlighted these problems on my blog site (www.timhebert.blogspot.com) under a series of posts, "The Oscar Flight Mystery." I'm not suggesting that I presented a definitive answer to the incident, but I attempted to underscore those problems associated with Salas' story. I do present links in most, if not all, of my posts to support my stance.

Regards,

Tim H.

Hello Tim, I may have something confused here but I thought it was confirmed that one of the officers did report a UFO. I was sure this happened and Carlson said it was merely a prank. If we ignore the interpretation of whether it was a prank or not, does the fact that a UFO reported is 'corroboration' at least as far as the report goes?

(also I appreciate that it is said the UFO was not mentioned in any following reports, supporting the prank interpretation)

thanks

Could you be thinking of Echo Flight? I was referring to Oscar Flight. Both Salas and Meiwald had a UFO component to two different stories at Oscar. When reading Salas' first interview with Meiwald back in the 1990s it was obvious that both gentlemen were not aware of each other's story. Both men had telephone conversations with the FSC, though apparently at different times.

I tend to lean towards a hoax/prank at Oscar Flight. Perhaps I can provide more details of my thoughts in another thread.

Best regards,

Tim
