“The day of final UFO revelation is at hand! Glory! The government heroes in the shadows have stepped forward with the good news! All hail! Let us praise these insiders and bow down! Our efforts have not been in vain!”
No kid gloves, no fawning gratitude toward sources.
For far too long, government insiders who offer UFO “revelations” have been given a free pass.
They should be treated like any other sources for breaking stories. “Your information is fascinating, but I have lots of questions about you and your background.”
There is a history of these insiders spreading disinformation or lies mixed with truth. This is how intelligence and propaganda operatives work. For instance, they could present tidbits about actual UFO sightings along with false claims about recovering “alien bodies.” Those latter claims would be part of their covert agenda.
Suppose secret government/corporate programs have been using the stolen work of Tesla and other outlier researchers to achieve advanced propulsion technology? They cover up that fact by spinning tales about alien ET tech. I’m not asserting that’s what happened, but it would illustrate why they would float lies…
Journalism—by which I mean independent journalism—should be miles past the point of asking softball questions and naïvely accepting “breakthrough revelations” from government sources.
In the wake of recent NY Times UFO disclosures from Luis Elizondo, a former intelligence operative who headed up a secret Pentagon program to study UFOs, many questions arise. Not one reporter who has gained access to Elizondo has publicly queried him at length about his suspect background in the intelligence community.
It would be more than interesting to get serious answers from Mr. Elizondo. They would provide a new jumping off point for further investigation.
Vetting a government insider isn’t easy. You ask many questions, you observe how he answers them, you keep pressing and probing and form your best assessment of the person. You don’t just lie down and accept him running you over like steamroller.
Here are questions Mr. Elizondo should respond to:
Mr. Elizondo, in your extensive high-level work as an intelligence case officer, did you ever plant stories in the press? False stories? If not, let me put it to you this way: if you had seen the value of planting a false story, in order to move a covert operation forward, would you have done it?
Mr. Elizondo, you resigned from the Pentagon in October. Almost immediately, you began revealing secret UFO information to the public and the press. What about your non-disclosure agreements with the government? You violated them, didn’t you?
Did you have permission from the government to ignore those agreements? If so, how did you arrange that?
If not, what has the government told you about your violations?
It appears the Pentagon wanted you to speak publicly about UFOs. True? If so, why?
According to Pentagon sources, you took several UFO videos with you when you resigned. You originally obtained these videos, in order to train pilots on how to respond when they encountered UFOs—but then you turned around and used the videos to inform the press and public about the reality of UFOs. Is this true? Has the government communicated with you about this?
In your interviews, you mention that the government, or one of its sub-contractors, has been studying materials from UFOs. What specific materials? How were they obtained? From captured UFOs? Crashed UFOs? Where are these UFOs now? Did the reporters at the New York Times ask you about this?
Is it true that scientists have been unable to analyze the composition of “UFO metals?”
Why, after decades of denial and silence, did the New York Times suddenly use you as a main source for a UFO story? Did the Times have a green light from the Pentagon?
You state that the secret Pentagon program, under your leadership, studied reports of UFOs and compared the probable technological capability of those vehicles to the technology the US possesses. Did you probe what has been going on at the Lockheed Skunkworks in Palmdale, California? What have you discovered about advanced secret technology at the Skunkworks and other facilities?
As a “whistleblower,” have you decided to parcel out what you know in small pieces, over time? If so, why?
How did you move from working as a case officer, running clandestine operations in Latin America, to heading up a secret Pentagon program on UFOs? The shift seems odd, to say the least?
Surely you understand that, because intelligence operatives are trained to lie and deceive, there are doubts about your veracity now. Your comments?
Why did the New York Times suddenly break a huge UFO story? Why now? It certainly appears that you, the Times, and the Pentagon are operating in concert, bypassing the usual secrecy, denial, and skepticism. What’s going on?
Your background includes “Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology, with research experience in tropical diseases.” Where did you study these subjects? For what purpose?
You’re now a member of Tom DeLonge’s team at To the Stars Academy. Several members have significant medical backgrounds. Here are quotes from the Academy’s website:
Dr. Norm Kahn’s career with the CIA “culminat[ed] in his development and direction of the Intelligence Community’s Counter-Biological Weapons Program.”
Dr. Paul Rapp “is a Professor of Military and Emergency Medicine at the Uniformed Services University.”
Dr. Garry Nolan “is the Rachford and Carlota A. Harris Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine…He holds a B.S. in genetics from Cornell University, a Ph.D. in genetics from Stanford University.”
Dr. Adele Gilpin, “is a scientist with biomedical academic and research experience as well as an active, licensed, attorney.”
Dr. Colm Kelleher “is a biochemist with a twenty-eight-year research career in cell and molecular biology currently working in senior management in the aerospace sector. He served as Laboratory Director at biotech company, Prosetta Corporation, leading several small molecule drug discovery programs focused on viruses of interest to the United States Department of Defense. He worked for eight years as Deputy Director of the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), a research organization using forensic science methodology to unravel scientific anomalies. From 2008-2011, he served as Deputy Administrator of a US government funded threat assessment program focused on advanced aerospace technology. Dr. Kelleher has authored more than forty peer reviewed scientific articles in cell and molecular biology, immunology and virology as well as two best-selling books, “Hunt for the Skinwalker” and “Brain Trust”. He holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Dublin, Trinity College.”
What are all these medical people doing on your team? Are we about to be treated to warnings about “viruses from outer space?” What is the bio-medical component of UFO disclosure? Are you looking for huge government funding for new programs in this area? Is THIS a covert agenda behind your breakout story about UFOs?
If you were running a UFO disinformation op on the public, what is the most important lie you would float, and why?
Would you agree that such disinformation ops have been run in the past? Give us an example or two.
Your Academy has released a statement which claims “there is sufficient credible evidence of UAP [Unidentified Aerial Phenomena] that proves exotic technologies exist that could revolutionize the human experience.” Are some of those technologies already under the control of the Lockheed Skunkworks? One member of your new team is Steve Justice, who “is the recently retired Program Director for Advanced Systems from Lockheed Martin Advanced Development Programs – better known as the ‘Skunk Works’.” He should know the answer to that question. What does Steve have to say? How would you suggest we check his statements?
Mr. Elizondo, I’m asking all these questions, because the mainstream press isn’t.
If you claim we are in a new era of honest Disclosure, that honesty should include you answering these and other inquiries. After all, you’re the prime source of the current story. As such, you should be willing to open up and address doubts.
Or are you banking on naïve public acceptance of your assertions?
If that’s the case, you’re only adding to the decades of obfuscation surrounding the UFO issue.
I’m here, I’m ready, able, and willing to have you lay your cards on the table.
No, I don’t expect you to contact me. But I do air these questions so people can compare them to what reporters will ask you in the months to come.
Which brand of whistleblower are you? The limited-hangout variety, or a no-holds-barred truth teller?
Certainly, you know we are used to hearing from government limited-hangout artists, and the truth tellers are rare, to say the least.
If you want to be recognized as authentic, you’ll have to go the extra mile.
To put it another way, if a career intelligence officer, who has worked with the US Army, the DOD, the National Counterintelligence Executive, the Director of National Intelligence; who has conducted and supervised highly sensitive espionage and terrorism investigations around the world; who has acted as an intelligence case officer running clandestine operations in Latin America and the Middle East—if such a person approached me with secret information about UFOs, I would naturally want do everything I could to vet him.
Well, that person is you. That is your resume.
You should be willing to answer a very large number of pointed and specific queries.
