Citizen Hearing on Disclosure(CHD): My Six Statements by Richard Dolan

May 15, 2013 By admin


 The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, organized by Steve Bassett, was held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, from April 29 to May 3, 2013. It was an ambitious undertaking, involving forty speakers who provided statements to six former members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate.

I was there the whole week, and must say that the overall quality of the people who presented information was high. In a group that large, there will always be something or someone to quibble about, but it’s fair to say that nearly everyone who attended came away impressed.

That goes for the six former members of Congress. It was not difficult to see their own personal evolution regarding the topic of unknown phenomena, eg. UFOs, engaging the militaries and populations of the U.S. and the world. I spoke to many of them personally, and they were clearly impressed.

Steve kept me busy. He asked me to create six statements, which I believe was the most of anyone that week. In addition to this, I gave a full-length lecture (which, I believe, was also the longest lecture of the week).

All formal statements were supposed to be ten minutes long, and all of mine were written out beforehand. Therefore, I have decided simply to publish the text of each of them.

This was my first statement for the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. Indeed, it was the first statement of the entire week of the CHD. I adapted much of this statement from my first book, UFOs and the National Security State (V1), especially the Introduction. I thought it would be a good way to kick off the week.


Richard Dolan: April 29, 2013

The UFO problem has involved military personnel around the world for more than sixty years, and is wrapped in secrecy. Because this subject is so widely ridiculed, it is important to stress why it is worthy of serious attention.

Stories of strange objects in the sky go far back in time, but from the 1940s to our own era, military personnel from the United States and many other nations have encountered unidentified flying objects visually and on radar, sometimes at close range. These events happened not scores of times, but hundreds of times, and most likely thousands.

Sometimes, the encounter was nothing more than a solid radar return of an object moving at an incomprehensible speed, performing impossible maneuvers. Sometimes it included the violation of sensitive air space. Often it involved the dispatch of one or more aircraft to intercept the object. At times, crew members have claimed to see a metallic, disc-like object, sometimes with portholes, sometimes with lights, frequently engaged in what appeared to be intelligent, evasive maneuvers. In a very few cases, it appears to have involved the military retrieval of a UFO. In a few others, it involved injury and even death to military personnel. In a very large number of recorded instances, military personnel who encountered UFOs were adamant that they did not see a natural phenomenon.

This is clearly a serious development, and it has been treated as such by those groups charged with maintaining national security. The CIA, NSA, and all branches of military intelligence have historically received UFO reports and discussed the matter as something of serious concern.

And yet, the military and other branches of government have created the fiction, for public consumption only, that the UFO problem is nothing to be concerned about – certainly not the result of little green men.

We are fortunate that, starting in the 1970s, the U.S. Freedom of Information Act began to help researchers learn some of the truth that lay behind the facade of propaganda. We learned, for example, that some U.S. military analysts initially feared that the Soviet Union might be behind the “flying saucer” wave of the 1940s and 50s. They studied this possibility, but rejected it. They also rejected the possibility that these were secret American technology.

Indeed, options quickly narrowed. Either this was something real and alien, or it was something “conventional” but as yet unknown or unexplained. Already, by the end of 1947, a contingent of analysts at the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base believed that UFOs were extraterrestrial. By the summer of 1948, this team prepared what they called an “Estimate of the Situation” stating the extraterrestrial thesis. The response: the team was dispersed and reassigned.

Yet, thanks to FOIA and the courage of a few senior officials to go on the record, we have a collection of statements about UFOs that are so numerous as to be impossible to mention all of them here. But a few might give you an appropriate flavor of what I mean.

This one is from General Robert B. Landry, Air Force Aide to President Harry S. Truman:

“I was called one afternoon [in 1948] to come to the Oval Office – the President wanted to see me… . I was directed to report quarterly to the President after consulting with Central Intelligence people, as to whether or not any UFO incidents received by them could be considered as having any strategic threatening implications … .”

Landry went on to say that he continued to brief President Truman, in conjunction with the CIA, quarterly for the rest of the Truman Presidency. That’s no less than sixteen briefings. We might want to know why a man as busy as President Truman would take the time out of his schedule to have so many meetings about UFOs? And yet, we have no official transcript or record of these briefings.

This is a statement from a Top Secret 1948 Air Force Intelligence report, “Analysis of Flying Object Incidents in the U.S.”

“The frequency of reported sightings, the similarity in many of the characteristics attributed to the observed objects and the quality of observers considered as a whole, support the contention that some type of flying object has been observed…. The origin of the devices is not ascertainable.”

An Air Force Intelligence Report from 1951, relating to an aerial encounter by a U.S. fighter pilot:

[Object] described as flat on top and bottom and appearing from a front view to have round edges and slightly beveled … No vapor trails or exhaust or visible means of propulsion. Described as traveling at tremendous speed….

And, one more statement from the early years, this one from a former head of the Central Intelligence Agency, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, in 1960:

Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.

How much clearer a statement should responsible citizens, academicians, media, and political leadership require before demanding to get some reasonable answers as to what is going on behind the scene in relation to the phenomenon of UFOs?

Because the problem certainly did not end during the 1960s, or 1970s, or 1980s. It has continued to the present day.

During the summer of 2002, just outside this city, over the town of Waldorf, Maryland, dozens of witnesses reported an incredible scene: multiple jet fighters chasing multiple, large, and unknown objects that were of blue and orange coloration. All the witnesses, two of whom I interviewed personally, and several of whom spoke to national media, described the amazing performance capability of these objects. The Air Force itself admitted it had scrambled F-16s to investigate unknowns, and admitted it had tracked at least one UFO on radar. We were told that the UFO simply disappeared from  the radar. The Air Force conclusion: it could have been “any number of things.”

Perhaps we might like to know… precisely which things?

What blue object can descend at an 80 degree angle, then stop, then reverse course, and then accelerate away from two F-16 jets?

Over Chicago’s O’hare Airport, in November, 2006, we saw the same kind of situation. A dozen United Airlines employees, including at least one pilot while on the ground, saw a hovering disc-shaped object below the clouds. It then accelerated away so suddenly that it left a hole in the cloud.

United ordered its employees to silence, but one of them reported the event, anyway. After denials by United and the FAA, both agencies were forced to acknowledge that, indeed, those individuals had made UFO reports. Again, we might ask: what might this have been, over one of the busiest airports in the world, and why the steadfast silence and denial?

These are only some of the better known recent cases. There are, in fact, an overwhelming number of them. The two largest websites for collecting North American UFO reports, the National UFO Reporting Center and the Mutual UFO network, have a combined total of well over 10,000 reports every year. Clearly, many or most of these would turn out to be something prosaic. But go through some of these reports. Many of them are truly incredible, and many of them have indeed received followup investigation. They are unexplained, and — at least by our conventional wisdom — unexplainable.

The combination of astonishing performance, powerful statements from selected senior officials, and steadfast silence and dismissal by our political establishment point to a problem. This is not merely the problem of cognitive dissonance. It is the problem a political system in which the wheels have fallen off the machine.

It is imperative in the name of science and responsible public policy that we get those wheels back on, and begin a genuine, open, investigation of this phenomenon. We demand and deserve answers from responsible officials who ought to be in the know. And if they are not in the know, we all need to investigate and find out just who is.

Thank you.
 Citizen Hearing Disclosure -CHD - NPC April -May 2013 - 02

I gave two statements to the former members of Congress and the Senate on Monday, April 29, 2013. Both had to do with historical background of UFO phenomena. This is the second of my statements, and I think possibly the shortest of the six. Like the previous statement, and like most of the others, I adapted some of my previous writing. In this case, my article, Twelve Government Documents that Take UFOs Seriously.


Richard Dolan, April 29, 2013

Researchers of UFOs have long argued about many facets of the phenomenon, but one conclusion shared by all serious researchers is that it has become a central, albeit covert, component of modern U.S. history, and indeed of world history.

But as everyone knows, you can’t have much of a history – that is, a reliable, factually based history – without access to documents. It is the documents of the past that enable us in the present to try to puzzle through the complexities, and find solid ground, as it were.

Yet, it’s easy for us to forget that access to most of the key UFO documents we now have came to us by way of historical accident. And it happened to be a fleeting one at that.

All through the 1940s, the 1950s, the 1960s, and well into the 1970s, there were many thousands of classified pages written about UFOs. Of course, the general public did not know this. Neither, it appears, did most members of Congress. But then came the end of the war in Vietnam and, of course, Watergate. This was a certain key moment in American history, a moment in which the United States Congress investigated the intelligence community, when it reopened the investigation of the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And it was a moment in which Congress dramatically strengthened the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, enabling U.S. citizens to petition their government for documents not merely relating to them personally, but to the nation in terms of broad issues of public policy.

Little did members of Congress realize that, of all subsequent FOIA requests, the most popular category would be related to UFOs.

Indeed, during the late 1970s, over 10,000 pages of documents relating to UFOs were released. The party lasted until 1982, when a Presidential order by Ronald Reagan made FOIA substantially less user friendly, and did not require many agencies to reply in a timely manner. The result was a major ballooning in costs to those people making requests. The Glory Era of UFO FOIA documents was over. To this day, more than half of all U.S. declassified UFO documents come from that period of time over thirty years ago. Great for the Carter administration, shame on the subsequent ones.

And yet we remain fortunate. Because the documents we have, thank goodness, tell us enough. They give us enough of a history to hold on to. They give us enough solid ground.

And their aggregate message is startlingly clear: UFOs have been the subject not merely of interest to our nation’s military and intelligence community, but at times the subject of concern and even alarm. But how could it be otherwise, when we have report after report of violations of sensitive airspace by objects that defied any logical or conventional explanation? Whether the scene was Los Alamos during 1948 and 1949, or Oak Ridge from 1948 through much of the 1950s, or the many military bases during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, that reported such events, the question remains: how could this not be a matter of grave concern to those parties responsible for maintaining the integrity of their airspace? And, not surprisingly, we find the tone of their memos and requests for information to be appropriately concerned.

As one memo from 1949 put the matter: “Information is desired if this was some new or experimental aircraft or for any explanation whatsoever.”

Such a statement was, in fact typical.

Indeed, the situation became so stressful to the CIA and elsewhere that, on December 2, 1952, the CIA’s Chief of Scientific Intelligence, H. Marshall Chadwell, wrote a classified memo to his boss, the Director of the CIA, Walter Bedell Smith:

“At this time, the reports of incidents convince us that there is something going on that must have immediate attention…. Sightings of unexplained objects at great altitudes and travelling at high speeds in the vicinity of major U.S. defense installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.”

This statement bears very close scrutiny. Here is yet another comment by a high-level U.S. official that UFOs were real, probably artificial, probably intelligently operated, and not apparently ours. Nor was there serious consideration that these were Soviet.

If not American, if not Soviet, if not natural phenomena, and if they appeared to be technological and under intelligent control, we begin to run out of viable options.

It is access to documents such as these that enable us to know with certainty that UFOs were a matter of serious concern to individuals at the highest level of U.S. national security. This is important because such levels of concern were consistently voiced within the classified world, but never given out publicly.

Today, official pronouncements about UFOs by U.S. government and military officials follow the exact same tone as fifty-plus years ago. Unfortunately, we lack the kind of access to classified information on UFOs that we once, briefly, obtained in the past. Yet, enough genuine and recent UFO accounts have become known to us, many of which involve U.S. military, that we can see very little has changed. Something important is happening behind the veil of the classified world.

My question to you is: How long will current members of Congress, and the public at large, be content to roll over and be spoonfed nonsense by responsible officials, when in fact they deserve the truth?

Thank you.

I was asked to participate in the panel concerned with UFOs and nuclear tampering. In fact, I was asked to prepare two statements, although as it turned out, the Panel decided to combine the two separate sessions into one, and therefore I only delivered the one below. (The second statement, although not delivered orally, remains part of the record of the proceedings.)


Richard Dolan, April 30, 2013

From the beginning of the atomic age, there have been good reports of unknown objects with extraordinary capabilities being in the vicinity of our most advanced nuclear facilities. They certainly appear to be interested.

We are fortunate in having obtained a few items of interest via the Freedom of Information Act. It is obvious that much remains beyond our reach, but what we have is certainly of interest. I’m going to describe a few of these documents for you, but first I want to describe an event that is not in a declassified document, but a written account from a credible witness that really is quite fascinating.

This is from a U.S. Navy officer named Byron D. Varner, who wrote a privately published book called Living on the Edge: An American war hero’s daring feats as a Navy fighter pilot, civilian test pilot, and CIA mercenary.

This book includes a UFO encounter by another Navy Pilot, Rolan Powell. Both of these gentlemen was interviewed at length by the then-head of the Mutual UFO Network, Mr. Walter Andruss.

Here’s what happened:

In July 1945, near the close of the Pacific War, the Hanford Atomic Facility, located in the State of Washington, was one of the key elements of America’s new nuclear infrastructure. Although by now no one thought the Japanese could threaten it, there were still standby aircraft, armed and ready at all times, just in case.

At noon, an alert was sounded. Radar had detected a fast-moving object that was now in a holding pattern directly above the Hanford plant. It was extremely high, and no one can see it at first. Six pilots, flying Grumman F-6F Hellcats, were sent up. Finally, they saw it and flew to intercept it. It was estimated to be at 65,000 feet. Extremely high.

No one could recognize it. It had what the book described as “a saucer-like appearance,” bright, extremely fast, and very high. The pilot Rolan Powell later described the object to be as large as “three aircraft carriers side by side, oval shaped, very streamlined like a stretched-out egg and pinkish in color.” It emitted a kind of vapor, he said, around the outside edges, from portholes or vents. He speculated that the vapor was being discharged to form a cloud for disguise.

The pilots were baffled and told to go higher. They replied, “if we go much higher we can ruin these engines.” The answer came back: “Blow the engines if you have to, but use full military power, full throttle injection, maximum, continuous. Go for it!”

They were told that if the engines quit, they were to “glide back towards the airport and hope that you make it.”

Even so, no one could get close enough to the object. It didn’t seem to do anything. It merely hovered there, as if observing, staying well enough out of reach. The pilots could not believe its ability to hover like this. Finally, some of the engines did begin to fail, fuel consumption got critical, and the planes returned to base. After this, the strange craft disappeared as quickly as it came. It did not return.

The pilots had pushed their aircraft up to 42,000 feet, well above their maximum ceiling of 37,000 feet. A rather serious event.

Not surprisingly, there was no press coverage of any of this.

Now, some might quibble that this is just a story, unconfirmed by any government or military document. But this was a detailed story from an experienced World War Two pilot, and you can take from it what you will. We do, however, have a number of declassified government documents that describe UFOs being seen over America’s nuclear facilities during the early atomic era.

Several from the FBI describe a series of events over and near Los Alamos, a central component of America’s nuclear program.

One document, from January 31, 1949, and other from a year and a half later, August 1950, describe what can only be called invasions of sensitive airspace by unknown and very extraordinary objects.

The first document gives specific dates for the initial sightings when they began in December 1948. In that month, they occurred on the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 20th, and 28th. The witnesses were nearly all of very high calibler: Special Agents of OSI, Airline Pilots; Military Pilots, and Los Alamos Security Inspectors. There was some speculation that the objects were Soviet, but no reasons or evidence were offered. Meteorites were ruled out.

The provisional conclusion was that this was either a previously unknown natural phenomena or something man made. Except that no one seemed to know of any project, anywhere, that could have caused the sightings. After more than sixty years, we still don’t.

The later document said that a total of roughly 150 observations had been made. It noted that there had been three types of objects.

First, the type known as Green Fireballs, which were “objects moving at high speed in shapes resembling half-moons, circles, and discs emitting green light.”

The second type were a bit more of the in-your-face variety, that is, “Discs, round flat shaped objects or phenomena moving at fast velocity and emitting a brilliant white light or reflected light.”

Third, the author writes “Meteors,” at which the reader might breathe a sigh of relief. Except that he then writes: “aerial phenomena resembling meteoric material moving at high velocity and varying in color.” Colors noted were white, amber, red, and green. Quite a range.

Another key place where the U.S. developed its atomic technology was at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Here is where the Manhattan Project had established a pilot plant for the production of plutonium. UFOs were reported from here, as well.

A declassified teletype from October 13, 1950 stated that, the night before, an Air Force radar installation picked up eleven unknown objects or perhaps more, traveling across Oak Ridge. These were slow moving, and at low altitude, from 1,000 to 5,000 feet. Fighters were scrambled but the pilots saw nothing. The teletype stated that “no reasonable explanation for radar readings yet developed although operators are experienced reliable personnel and radar set is in perfect operating condition.”

This was only the beginning at Oak Ridge. An FBI teletype of December 5, 1950 wrote of six unidentified objects over Oak Ridge from the previous day. It’s clear that people were scratching their heads, and some wondered if there was a possible weather phenomenon going on. Yet another teletype from the FBI’s Richmond Office, dated December 8, 1950, stated: “This office very confidentially advised by Army Intelligence, Richmond, that they have been put on immediate high alert for any data whatsoever concerning flying saucers.”

Violations of air space there occurred on the 15th and 16th of December 1950, and quite a few over the next few months.

Recall that this was during the Korean War. A major crisis was occurring on the other side of the world, monopolizing the efforts of the U.S. military, and yet we have this statement.

Odd craft were seen for quite some time over Oak Ridge. A fascinating document from late 1953 described a visual sighting of a UFO seen over the facility. An F-86 fighter aircraft had just flown by, after which a black object was seen to appear out of a high white cloud, about 12,000 to 15,000 feet altitude. It began to travel in large circles very rapidly for at least five minutes. Sometimes it looked cigar shaped, sometimes round. Now, in the words of the report:

“Object was extremely black in color, having an appearance of a deep black metal exterior with a fine gloss. It did not leave a vapor trail …. No sound was heard. The object flew east at a tremendous speed for what appeared to be three miles where it stopped. The object was then joined by two more of these same objects. A formation similar to a spread “V” was formed and the objects, at a tremendous speed flew in an eastward direction.”

Rather extraordinary.

Incidentally, there is one more document describing a UFO over the Hanford Nuclear Plant, which came up at the beginning of my statement. We have an Air Force memo from August 8, 1950, which shows us that Hanford continued to be a place of interest. Listen to this brief statement:

“Since 30 July 1950 objects, round in form, have been sighted over the Hanford AEC Plant…. Air Force jets attempted interception with negative results. All units including the anti-aircraft battalion, radar units, Air Force fighter squadrons, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been alerted for further observation. The Atomic Energy Commission states that the investigation is continuing …”

All I can say is, good grief. Do you think they were taking this seriously? Yes, I think they were.

These events were more than mere accident or coincidence. Anyone charged with security over these vital installations would have to take these events very seriously. Indeed, not to do so would be a grave violation of one’s sworn duty to protect and defend such installations. And it would not be hard to see why deep secrecy would dominate the subject of UFOs.

There are other incidents regarding UFOs and nuclear installations that occurred in later years. I will discuss some of those in the next panel  shortly. There is even evidence that these types of events have continued to occur much more recently, although they are harder to confirm.

And yet, the events which took place so long ago not only demand a scientific analysis, but also cry out to be understood for what they were: a key component in the implementation of secrecy so profound, so serious, that they contributed to the creation of a state within a state, not bound by the traditional American goals of public openness and responsiveness to the people.

One might argue that such events are so serious that the public really doesn’t have a need to know. Well, I beg your pardon, but I do think that citizens in a free republic, if they are to govern, which is the basic idea, do have a need to know the important things in their world.

Thank you.

This was my second statement on the subject of UFOs and Nuclear Tampering for the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. However, because the two panels on this subject were combined into one, I never got to read this to the Panel. It is, however, in the permanent record of the proceedings, and is now here, as well.


Richard Dolan, April 30, 2013

Earlier, I spoke about the appearance of unknown and extraordinary objects engaging in what appeared to be some sort of monitoring or observation of key American nuclear facilities during the very early Cold War. I need not point out that this is a serious development, and one would think that academic historians would find this to be something noteworthy of study. And yet, to this day, there is not one single academic monograph or book length study on any of this. There are a few serious works on the matter, including my own, but none that come from a university setting.

This, despite the fact that the accounts of such events are right there in the public record, courtesy of the declassification process, and can easily be obtained not merely by going to the National Archives repository in College Park, Maryland, but simply by going online and hunting them down. It’s not hard to do.

One of these reports describes an extraordinary event at Minot Air Force Base, in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966.

This base was a major Strategic Air Command (SAC) base at the time, with nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missiles, as well as manned bombers and aerial refueling aircraft.

That night, an airman radioed to the base about a multicolored light, very high in the sky. A team went to the location, confirmed the original unknown, then saw a second, white object pass in front of clouds. The base radar tracked the object, which was as high as 100,000 feet (almost twenty miles). The object rose and descended several times; each time it descended, an Air Force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static, even though he was sixty feet below the ground. The object eventually descended to ground level ten to fifteen miles south of the area. The Air Force sent a strike team to check. Apparently, they saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:

“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”

The incident lasted nearly four hours and was confirmed by three different missile sites.

As with all good UFO reports, there are some serious questions here. What kind of object could make the dramatic changes in altitude that were noted? What was the mission involved in these unknown objects? That is, what were they doing?

And — a real puzzler — who could have been manufacturing them? The Russians? Really?

Of course, in nearly 50 years, nothing has turned up to point to such a conclusion, but the real question is, what kind of technology could have done that. In particular with the ability to jam the radio transmissions? Certainly, what it looks like is that some agency with tremendous technology was snooping around one of America’s key ICBM sites. Then it just … left.

We have a few more nuggets, legacies of the Glory Era  of the American Freedom of Information Act.

On the evening of October 27, 1975, a low-hovering object invaded the airspace of Loring Air Force Base in northern Maine. This object penetrated the perimeter just three hundred feet above the ground. Personnel inside the base said it had a white strobe light and what appeared to be a red navigation light. It circled inside the base and came to within 300 yards of the nuclear weapons area, By that time, it was only one hundred and fifty feet above the ground. For about an hour, while the object was being observed, the base was on high alert status. All attempts to identify the object failed. It then left and went north toward Canada.

Twenty-four hours later, the scene was repeated. Security personnel saw an object approaching from the north at an altitude of 3,000 feet. It had flashing white lights and a solid amber light. Even though it was under constant radar and visual observation, it somehow disappeared several times. On the previous night, the base commander had been denied air support; this time he received permission for a National Guard helicopter to be dispatched.

Before the helicopter arrived, however, this object did something rather impressive. It had been keeping a distance of at least three miles from the base all the while; now, somehow, it penetrated the base perimeter and appeared over the end of the runway, not more than one hundred and fifty feet off the ground. Personnel nearby described it as red and orange, and resembling a stretched out football. The object hovered in mid-air, then turned out its lights and seemingly disappeared. Its lights went on and off several times. When, on one occasion, the lights turned back on, the object had gotten very close to the weapons storage area.

By now, it was 1 a.m., which means the encounter had been going on for more than five hours. There is a record stating that the National Guard helicopter unsuccessfully attempted to contact and identify the object at this time. Then, for another two hours, the object remained inside or very close to the base, as it was seen over the weapons storage area once again at 3 a.m., completely unlit but visible to ground personnel.

Consider how ominous and provocative this action was. When the helicopter again arrived to investigate, its crew members could not see the object, even though the frustrated ground personnel plainly saw both objects. Shortly after, the unknown craft flew off. It had been inside the base for seven hours.

Those who insist upon conventional explanations to this event might consider the possibility of the intruder being a helicopter. The problem is that no one heard any sounds from the object, despite its low altitude. Moreover, several times, personnel could see its shape, yet none described it as a helicopter. As with the other incursions of this period, the identity of this intruder has never been confirmed.

Equally fascinating were the events of November 7 and 8, 1975 at Montana’s Malmstrom Air Force Base. The base contained ICBMs over a very large area.  At 3 p.m., electronic sensors detected an intrusion at one of the missile sites. A Sabotage Alert Team was ordered to investigate, and when the members came to within a mile of the site, they reported by radio that they could see a bright glowing orange disk, as large as a football field. It was simply hovering there, over the missile site. It was apparently an unsettling sight to behold, because when they were ordered to proceed to the site, the men refused to go any further.

The object soon began to rise, whereupon it was registered on NORAD radar. F-106 interceptors were scrambled, but the object continued to rise to the incredible altitude of 200,000 feet. This is more than double the ceiling of the ultra-high flying U-2 spy plane, and the intercepting jets never saw the object. Upon inspection, a missile at the site showed indications that its computerized targeting system had been tampered with, and it had to be removed. It would appear that the UFO was responsible.

More UFOs were reported the following night at the base. Once again, two F-106s were scrambled, whereupon ground personnel observed a cat-and-mouse game during which the UFOs turned off their lights each time the jets approached. When the jets departed, the objects would turn their lights back on. Clearly, these objects were able to outclass American intercepting jets with ease.

There are other stories indicating UFO interest in nuclear technology and weapons. The problem is that many are unconfirmed. They may well be true, and the people describing the events often have high credibility. But again, our efforts are hampered, frankly, by an excess of restrictions that have been placed upon the public’s legitimate right to know. It has been over thirty years since FOIA was truly convenient to UFO researchers, in which new and fresh information could be obtained.

We are so busy congratulating ourselves on being a free society, that many people have forgotten actually to look long and hard at what kind of system has been evolving over the years. Former President Eisenhower warned, many years ago, of the dangers posed by the growing Military-Industrial complex.

Indeed, our nation and world have transformed so radically since that time, yet we still use the same terminology as before: we talk about democracy and republican institutions. But, as long as citizens are shut out from what they need to know if they are to govern, these are meaningless words today. By removing such key information, the result is that citizens become infantilized, ignorant, dulled, distracted, and no longer able to fulfill the critical role they need to in order to maintain a free society.

The appearance of unknown craft and highly advanced technology is something that affects not merely national security interests, but the entire world and everyone in it. We are not served by dealing with this in an atomized, isolated manner. We need to organize, we need to share data, we need to share ideas, and mostly we need to act intelligently in a coordinated fashion. And yet, every step of the way, there has been a silent, yet overpowering, player, embedded somewhere in the U.S. national security structure, that is immune to public inquiry, and certainly does not support the public’s legitimate interest in learning the full truth of what I believe to be the most important existential development of our time. The appearance of … let us call them Others, here on planet Earth, interacting in some manner with humanity.

Thank you.

I gave two statements to the panel members of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure for its final day, May 3, 2013. Personally, they are my two favorite statements. This one is on the Truth Embargo, a phrase coined by the Hearing organizer, Steve Bassett. I ran out of time before I could read the last few paragraphs of this statement. The statement in its entirety is below.


Richard Dolan, May 3, 2013.

One of the striking thing about UFOs is the discrepancy between the quantity of astonishing sightings on the one hand, and the lack of responsible treatment of it by our major media, our academic and scientific institutions, and our political system.

This is a shame, because there is very good research is being done every day. Many of those researchers have been here this week. Others are out there, too, such as the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP), which collects and analyzes encounters that the aviation industry has with unknown objects. There are thousands of such cases. Another group is Project 1947, which has done documented UFO phenomena during the early cold war years. There are outstanding research websites, such as There are also many excellent research groups in Europe and elsewhere in the world.

None of them get any love from America’s dumdum media, which prefers to lump the whole subject into a big tin foil hat and instead write about the latest escapades of Kim Kardashian.

But this is a symptom of a deeper problem. To understand why there is a truth embargo we need to come to terms with the fact that America’s major media groups lost their independence a long time ago. We all know about media consolidation, we all know about the intimate relationships that have existed for years between the elite members in the corporate media empire and the political leadership, and particular with the military and intelligence community.

Last year — one example only — it was learned that the Pentagon spends some $4 billion a year to sway public opinion. Aside from asking just why Americans ought to be paying their own government to brainwash them — I mean, talk about getting shafted both ways — this is simply one facet of many that highlights a revolving door through which passes the military-industrial complex, the media, the academic community, and more. National Security money, which is our nation’s greatest and most egregious waste of all, has infiltrated everything, and that certainly means the once-upon-a-time integrity of our journalists and media corporations.

This is repugnant to any freedom loving people. But those individuals benefitting from this system are not freedom loving — unless they mean their own freedom.

The bottom line is that, because UFOs are a definite matter of national security, those national security decision makers have made it certain that this subject remains out of sight as much as possible. Is this not obvious, by now?

Why would they do this? Well, many reasons.

Let’s touch on the matter of oil. Because even a child can understand that that these objects do not need oil to travel from Point A to Point B. Whatever powers flying saucers is something different, something better. So if the President were to announce the reality of these things, how long do you think it would be before scientists openly begin to study the nature of the propulsion and power system of UFOs? This would immediately challenge oil, not simply as the world’s leading source of power. But it would severely threaten the entire global financial system, which is based on oil. Probably 90 percent of the value of any product you can think of is determined by the energy that went into making and transporting it. In most cases, that means oil. To say nothing of the millions of jobs that rely on the petroleum industry. We’re talking One. Big. Overhaul. Of everything that matters in the global economy.

Can we think for an instant that those individuals “in the know” haven’t thought about this?

Especially if there is that Holy Grail involved: some form of free energy. What if this new form of energy can’t easily be monetized? What if? Could the global financial structure afford free energy? A perverse question, to be sure, but one that has to be important to those individuals at the top of the human power structure.

And of course, there is the political nightmare. Any announcement of this reality would come at the cost of worldwide public anger. No one wants to learn they have been lied to for an entire human lifetime. They would want to know just how this secret was kept. That’s a big key right there. That would lead inevitably to questions about why Congress was kept out of the loop, why our major institutions missed the boat, and just who has been managing the secret.

That would lead, obviously, to a wholesale investigation of Black Budget America. Shining sunlight into a very dark place.

What might we find? Well, consider, just consider, that Roswell was indeed what the researchers here two days ago discussed so eloquently and cogently. That it was the retrieval of alien technology, and perhaps bodies. In fact, there are a number of well researched UFO crash events. Suppose for a moment that it happened.

That would mean that the coverup involves much more than mere knowledge of other beings here on Planet Earth. It would mean there is possession of such advanced technology as to be nearly incomprehensible, at least at first. Hard to consider, right? And yet, an inevitable conclusion.

So, what happens when teams of brilliant scientists, with total secrecy, and nearly limitless black budget funds, are able to study recovered alien technology for many years, and even decades?

Could it not be that, given enough time and effort, even if they couldn’t replicate what they found, they might have learned a few things. Such claims have been made, and it is reasonable to suppose that breakthroughs would have been made. Breakthroughs such as solid-state electronics, fiber optics, high-tensile fibers, lasers, and an array of other money-making opportunities for the defense and other industries. None of this has been proven, but it is also true that the private research undertaken in classified environments is not easy for outside researchers to observe. In fact, it would be be very easy to hide the Roswell connection in the historical treatment of these and other technologies.

Another relevant consideration of such breakthroughs is that they would reduce to zero any incentive to reveal the secret to the public. Why give up the goose that lays golden eggs?

But now matters become even more interesting. Because what if some of the breakthroughs were even more significant? What if they included secrets to what is known as field propulsion or electrogravitics? What if they led to a new source of energy, something that could replace petroleum?

To those managing these Special Access Programs, they could never allow such breakthroughs to see the light of day. Of course, those scientists doing the research would need to continue and learn everything they could about electrogravitics, antigravity, new sources of energy, and any related topics.

Consider also, what happens when such breakthroughs become classified? We know it happens, all too frequently, that public science has become hostage to national security. What we are looking at is a situation in which the classified, black budget world — at least part of it — has gone so far ahead of the rest of us, that we may with justice almost look upon them as a separate society. Something I have sometimes called “a breakaway civilization.”

How far ahead might some of that classified world be? Those of us on the outside, trying to peek in, can only make educated guesses — or investigate occasional leaks. My own conclusion, at least for now, is that they are very far ahead indeed, with the ability even to enter and leave Earth orbit with much greater ease than people suspect, perhaps a clandestine space fleet, most likely a significant built infrastructure, a large portion of which is deep underground. And even — why not? — interactions or encounters with non-human intelligences. Why would that be so impossible?

To what extent would such a group even answer to the President of the United States? Do they, rather, answer to private international financial powers, which is basically how the entire world already operates?

I had a long conversation once with a retired senior intelligence official. He had given briefings to President Reagan. This man knows a very great deal about UFOs. He told me that he has spoken to 18 former Presidents, CIA Directors, and DoD Secretaries about UFOs. Their attitudes fell into three categories. One group, of roughly 3 or 4 of them, said essentially, “what’s wrong with you? why wasted your time with that nonsense?” Another equally small group made it clear that they had been briefed on the matter and knew this was very serious. But the largest group, at least half of these individuals, who had been at the pinnacle of power, said, “you know about UFOs? I would love to know about that but got nowhere. Can you share what you know?”

In other words, our top political leadership, with a few exceptions, is locked out of this subject. Because they come and go, but the programs managers are lifers. They seem to answer to someone else.

Recall the words of the late Senator Daniel Inouye from 1987.

“There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.”

He was onto something.

The things that are real are the things that are denied to us. The things that we see in our corporate-controlled media are the most illusory. This is no accident.

But not everyone can sit passively, avoiding the difficult questions. It is up to those people who care enough to become warriors for truth. I don’t pretend this is easy. It can be maddeningly difficult. In so doing, we find ourselves at odds with a formidable structure of power.
Still, in the context of something as brief and ephemeral as a human life, what can be more rewarding, what more worthy, than an unswerving dedication to the fight for Truth?

Thank you.

This was my sixth and final statement to the Panel for the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, which ran from April 29 to May 3, 2013. All week long, the panel members, who were all former members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, had listened to testimony and statements that clearly shocked them at times, and prompted them to want to learn more. I did not feel I could have made my two final statements until the very last day, when I felt they would be more likely to be ready for them. Fittingly, my final statement was on Disclosure.


Richard Dolan, May 3, 2013

I’ve often felt that disclosure on the matter of UFOs and possible ETs is a paradox. It is impossible, but it is inevitable.

Impossible because there is no political motivation for it. Period.

Inevitable, however, because our leaders are not the only factor in the equation. There are the other beings, after all. But mainly, there’s us. The People. Who are going through the greatest social, cultural, and especially technological transformation in the history of humanity. In fact, we are the game changers.

Someday, and it won’t be too long in the future, something is going to force someone’s hand. It could be a major sighting, a major leak, something. Something that can no longer be denied. After all, we are fast approaching what experts in artificial intelligence call the Singularity, when computing intelligence exceeds our own. In such a future, can we really think we will still be stuck in neutral on this issue?

Something will force the President’s hand. He or she will finally hold that long awaited press conference and make that bombshell understatement:

“I have been advised by the national Security Council, and heads of our intelligence community that there is a reality to some of the UFO phenomenon, in that some UFOs are real physical craft not manufactured by any known civilization on earth.”

Or, words to that effect. It’s the kind of statement that many proponents of UFO disclosure would like to hear, but the real question is, what next? Because there will be quite a few follow-up questions.

At the top of the list will be questions about who these other beings are and what their agenda might be. This will be a very difficult question for any President to answer. In the first place, there is a likelihood that even the leaders of the black budget/breakaway society that have been on top of this for years, they may not even know. Or at least not fully. And what if they do know? And, moreover, what if at least some of that answer includes information that might be deeply upsetting?

Divining the intentions of non-human visitors–or permanent residents–might not be the easiest thing to do, but it’s entirely possible, judging from the data we do have, that some of them don’t really care very much about humanity. Some may, some may not. What if an agenda has been determined within the intelligence community, and this agenda includes something to do with alleged abduction phenomena? And even if that isn’t true, does any President honestly believe he or she can contain rampant speculation along these lines?

Even if the intentions of these other beings are said to be neutral or positive, there will clearly be tremendous suspicion by large swaths of humanity. This will not be an easy sell. There will already be a sizable number of people predisposed to interpreting these other these beings as nothing less than demonic. Short of bringing one of these entities to a podium and subjecting it to hours and days and weeks of questions by an insatiable public, it is very likely that any moment of disclosure will not satisfy the public the way it would like to be regarding these alien motivations.

That’s only the beginning of the problems. One early and obvious question that will arise, one which will have deep, profound political implications, will be the very simple “how have you managed to keep this secret all these years?”

Consider that our entire society has been told that UFOs do not represent anything truly anomalous, that ET’s or aliens are definitely not here on Earth interacting with us, that UFO believers may be well-meaning but had been mistaken about all of that. This has been a mindset embedded within all of our major institutions. Our educational institutions from primary school through universities and postdoctoral levels. Throughout our major news organizations, in which an open belief in UFOs is a third rail for one’s career. Throughout our scientific establishment for sure, and also throughout our political structure.

Political careers have been destroyed, or at least severely undermined, by the UFO taint. Remember what happened to Dennis Kucinich in 2008 after it became known that many years before he had seen a UFO. Never mind the fact that the two witnesses he had been with came out and corroborated the sighting. They saw the same thing.

All of these institutions and others have treated the UFO topic as nothing more than a joke, something suitable for immature minds. Can it really be that professors throughout the United States uniformly have dismissed this phenomenon without any cooperation from the intelligence community? Ditto with the world of science, politics, and media? Well, no, not when the most modest amount of research shows strong intelligence community influence over all of those institutions.

In other words people will see very clearly that the national security apparatus has created a global culture that has suffocated the truth. Researchers will begin to investigate in a serious way just how these relationships have undermined the credibility of all of those institutions, and undermined our apprehension of truth.

The result will be a major cultural and institutional housecleaning. But it won’t stop there. Citizens will naturally want to know specifics about the structure of secrecy itself. That is, they will want to know, if the US president has been out of the loop all these years, as it seems, then who exactly has been in the loop? Who has been running the UFO cover-up?

If the answer is anything along the lines of my own research so far, it will show that the cover-up has long ago gravitated away from formal presidential authority into international and private hands. It’s not that the U.S. President is a non-player in all of this, but rather is more like the public face of the true power elite that stands behind. We all have come to understand this when it comes to power in general, and this will likely be the case when we begin a sophisticated analysis of UFO secrecy.

In other words, the moment of disclosure will trigger an intellectual revolution worldwide relating to the true structure of power on planet Earth. It will be a moment in which the world sees and acknowledges that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all.

The political fallout will be tremendous, and a great battle will develop within the first year of Disclosure. Think of it this way. Just because the president has been forced into making an announcement doesn’t mean that the CIA and all the other intelligence groups that had been managing this will simply walk away from the table. There has been a concerted effort spanning an entire human lifetime to control this topic. A great deal has been invested, and mere disclosure is not going to change that. The real issue in the immediate post-disclosure world will be: who controls the spin on the story?

Because right away there will be a great divide, a chasm. Once this topic is available for open discussion, you can be sure that people around the world will be demanding answers. You can be just as sure that on the other side of the fence, information will be handed out as sparingly as possible. Government spin doctors will be out in great numbers trying to control the situation according to national security policy, but this time independent UFO researchers may very well get a public hearing that they had never gotten before. If the official spokespersons are making misleading or false statements, it’s going to be much easier, post-disclosure, for independent researchers to point this out. Because this time, the world will be much more likely to listen. And there will be many, many more investigators into this topic after disclosure than there are today. How all that will turn out only time will tell.

There are so many other messy issues relating to global finance, energy, truth commissions, lawsuits, cultural transformations, cultural wars, religious/spiritual changes, scientific paradigm shifts, and ultimately geopolitical changes that will allow us to meet the challenge of “others” here on Planet Earth in some sort of coordinated, hopefully logical manner, and even more hopefully, in some way that answers to the people rather than a handful of elite human players.

For that, we will need a groundswell of public pressure from below, and tremendous political energy, ethics, and courage to take on the black budget culture that has dominated this subject for so long, and begin a long, hard fight to reclaim some measure of freedom and dignity for humanity while we begin a new, better, and more mature phase of our existence.

Thank you.

Send Snowden home


The world's greatest whistleblower is stuck in the Russian winter, facing solitary confinement, ridicule, and life in prison if US agents grab him. But this week, we could help get him to safety.

Edward Snowden exposed the mind-boggling and illegal level of surveillance the US government is conducting on, well, all of us. His welcome in Russia runs out soon, and he's got nowhere to go. But Brazilian President Dilma is angry at US surveillance and experts say she might brave massive US pressure to consider asylum for Snowden!

This is about much more than one man. If Snowden's act of truth-telling leads to crippling punishment, it sends the wrong signal to abusive governments and whistleblowers everywhere. If 1 million of us take action now, we can send President Dilma the largest citizen-supported asylum bid in history -- sign to safeguard Snowden and defend democracy everywhere.



Revolution in Kiev, Ukraine

In the last days I received multiple requests to translate my posts for foreign readers, as they have very limited information about the happenings in Ukraine. This material describes events which took place in Kyev on January 22 and 23.

Sharing and distribution is appreciated.

22 January 2014. Battles on streets of Kiev.

I came to Kiev. I came to see for myself what is happening here. Of course, an hour after arriving at Maidan, you begin to understand that everything what you've read in dozens of articles, saw in TV news reports is total crap. In the upcoming reports I will try to, as objectively as possible, to sort out this new wave of Kiev revolution.
