Disclosure – the subtitle of Book Six in my Solar Warden series.
In May of 2019, The New York Times ran a story about Navy pilots encountering UFOs, now called UAPs, or “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.” The article included video taken in flight from a number of fighter aircraft sources in 2014-15 over the East coast and over the Pacific in 2017. According to the article, what the Navy pilots claim they saw was an unidentified aircraft they described as a flying “tictac,” and the videos were subsequently dubbed the tictac videos. The article also divulged the existence of a classified project run out of the Pentagon called “AATIP,” or the “Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program,” which had been studying the UFO phenomena since 2007. The article, along with others from the Times, blew the door off the long held secrecy concerning UFOs.
Last spring there was a lot of chatter about how the US government – and possibly many other governments around the world – were about to disclose what information they had about UFOs and extraterrestrial contact. A seminal event in world history that would once and for all settle the question, “are we alone in the universe?”
Everyone in the UFO community was excited about what they thought would be the presentation of over 70 years of intel kept hidden from the general public – from the famous Roswell incident to those US Navy “tictac” videos. Those who had been waiting and fighting to get the government to release all the information about ETs and their UFO craft would finally be vindicated. Actually, it’s the military that’s holding all of the proprietary intel close to their chest. Regardless, the event was supposed to take place in June of this year. Here it is October, and everyone is still waiting for this so-called disclosure to happen.
But wait! 60 Minutes ran a story on May 16th about those Navy tictac videos. Disclosure at last (from a reputable television news magazine no less) that yes, there may be something to those enigmatic wing-camera videos!
By now the other shoe has dropped, and the 60 Minutes story has fallen flat. They even ran a follow-up episode, but it was the same vague lack of information type of news reporting.
There have been many leaders over the years who have promised UFO disclosure. Ex-president Jimmy Carter witnessed a UFO when governor of Georgia, and promised to disclose government UFO information when he became president. Once in the White House, Carter discovered he didn’t have the authority to keep such a promise. Bill Clinton made the same assumption/mistake when he came to office in 1993. Then there was John Podesta, Clinton’s White House Chief of staff (among other things), who is an avid UFO enthusiast. He, along with Hillary Clinton promised to pull back the veil on the government’s UFO secrecy when she was elected president in 2016. Too bad for her, Donald Trump was elected that year, and Hillary’s disclosure plans went up in a puff of smoke. And what did Trump have to say about UFOs? In June of 2019 he was asked what he thought of the reports by Navy pilots about various sightings. He replied, “… people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.”
No disclosure from Trump. And don’t expect any announcements from President Biden. In May of this year at a press conference, he laughed off a question from a reporter about what he thought UFOs are.
So where does that leave us? The balloon has burst, I’m afraid. There will be no disclosure. The Navy issued a report last spring, and all the report would admit is the “tictacs” are a real phenomenon, but they don’t know what they are.
