Why NASA's Recent Announcement About UAPs (UFOs) Feels Like Deception
Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP), as called by the U.S. government, has become the 'mainstream' nomenclature for Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).
Recent congressional hearings and NASA's latest announcement that they will take the phenomenon seriously and are allocating resources to study it has made headlines. However, NASA stated they would only spend tens of thousands or up to one hundred thousand dollars to study the phenomenon - hardly an amount that could produce a serious study. The Department of Defence also set up a 'Task Force' to study the phenomenon.
All of this recent mainstream exposure, and the idea that these organizations are now all of a sudden taking UFOs seriously and studying it can be quite confusing. Reason being, there's undeniable proof that these objects have been observed, filmed, studied, and tracked on radar for decades. There are many examples of these encounters, here's one in particular from Iran where multiple fighter pilots saw and tracked a "UFO" if you're interested.
Branches within the government now claiming that they are only beginning to study and take interest in the phenomenon is neither accurate or genuine. It's completely false. It sets up these departments to control the narrative around the phenomenon, and provide the explanation. We'll get to that later.
“The phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious…The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability, (particularly in roll), and the actions which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically or remotely.”
Who exactly has been studying it, what people and departments within government, as well as private organizations and contractors is hard to pinpoint. These efforts have been classified. Even recent congressional hearings on the subject had a classified briefing in which certain information was not made transparent.
How do we know that congress people were even briefed regarding the full scope of what is known? Many "Special Access Programs" that are operational within the Department of Defense are, as explained by a 1997 US Senate report, “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”
Information warfare is at an all time high. Big tech organizations have been active in censoring certain political views, information, science, and evidence that calls into question government measures against COVID, and more. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security recently attempted to create a "Disinformation Governance Board," but it was quickly scrapped after political pressure.
Organizations like NASA as well as government suddenly claiming that only now will they begin to investigate the UFO phenomenon puts them in a prime position to explain the phenomenon, to relay "new" discoveries to the citizenry.
They've already begun doing this.
For example, according to the Office of the Director of National intelligence and the UAP Task Force,
"Our analysis of the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will fall into the one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, USG or U.S. industry development programs, foreign adversary systems, and a catchall "other" bin."
In 2021, the European Defense Industry & Space claimed it will look to crack down on disinformation occurring online with regards to the UFO and ET phenomenon.
Censorship of views, evidence and opinion will not be unique to politics, covid, climate change, but will invade many other topics including what we're seeing happen with the UFO phenomenon.
It's no secret that every year, more and more people lose trust in their government, especially when it comes to how they relay accurate information. Those in the UFO community, both activists and researchers, should be cautious when it comes to this type of 'mainstream disclosure' that's taking place.
Anybody who has studied ufology and sifted through the evidence and the lore knows that it is an extremely vast topic that leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. What we are most likely to get is a simple, extremely watered down and sanitized version of disclosure - something that will most likely not be an accurate version of truth.
In a way, modern day mainstream UFO disclosure could be used to maintain secrecy around the subject, by painting a false perception of the phenomenon to keep certain realities about it under wraps. We saw this with Project Bluebook, a decades old effort by the U.S. government to supposedly study the phenomenon, when it was actually used to debunk the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
There is hardly any transparency in our world when it comes to big and 'controversial' topics and events, so don't expect this to be the case with UFOs. Perhaps it's not the best idea to constantly rely on official government offices to provide us with explanations about such things.
