Full Disclosure and UFOs

According to a new report circulating on the Internet, full disclosure about UFOs is at hand. On November 27, 2009, President Barack Obama will tell the world all that the United States knows about UFOs. Many believe that this means he will tell the world that alien spacecraft have been visiting Earth for decades, if not centuries or longer.
Why don’t I believe this?

Because such rumors have been reported before. Many times before. Although such a possible disclosure might have been announced earlier, it seems that one of the first, if not first rumors about disclosure came with the release, in 1951, of The Day the Earth Stood Still (please note here I’m referring to the 1951 classic and not the recent remake). The idea was that the movie was the first step in telling the public about flying saucers. It presented a benevolent space traveler here to warn us about our warlike ways.

Of course there was no disclosure.

Another suggested attempt was the Air Force sponsored scientific study of UFOs at the University of Colorado, also known as the Condon Committee. Some speculated that full disclosure would come at the end of the study. Those poor, misguided people didn’t know that the whole thing was a set up with a goal of getting the Air Force out of the UFO investigation business. At the end, there was no disclosure, just the closure of the Air Force project to investigate them.

There was another supposed event, this one apparently coordinated around the country with UFO researchers told to be available to the local media to answer questions about the alien visitors.

Of course there was no disclosure.

But a history of false rumors (can there be a true rumor?) doesn’t mean this latest attempt will be the same as all those others. According to Dave Wilcox, he heard from Bill Ryan of Project Camelot that this would happen on November 27. But he cautioned that too much advance publicity would kill the announcement.

In other words, the prediction that there will be disclosure has been superceded by another prediction about why it won’t happen. Now, when November 27 passes without a word from the White House or the President, all those who claimed there would be disclosure can tell us that all our talking about it scuttled the announcement. It’s our fault for mentioning any of this in a public place. Nothing like being able to have it both ways.

There will be no announcement on November 27. I don’t know how these rumors get started, but once they do, many jump on the bandwagon. In the end, it just makes everyone look silly because we’re all lumped together with no gradations in what we accept as true and what we know to be false.

When November 27 comes and passes without the announcement, remember, I told you so about a month earlier.

Kevin, you didn't need to tell me, lol. The coverup has gone on for over 60 years already, and I suspect few if any of us will live to see the real thing--maybe in 2050-2100?

Funny, but every prediction of this kind always:
1. emanates from someone in the USA
2. tells us that the said announcement will come from authorities in the USA.
My question is: Why is the United States so self-centred on this subject? Doesn't any other country have this supposed UFO knowledge, whatever it may be?

There have been many crash retrieval reports from nations other than the US. But most don't seem to be as reliable as Roswell or Kecksburg, or the material was supposedly shipped to Wright Patterson. There is a widespread perception that only the US possesses the real proof. By frequently raising hopes only to disappoint, the powers that be undermine real disclosure efforts. Making the whole enterprise look silly helps maintain secrecy here where it counts.

C'mon Kevin . . . your writing about it here is why they will cancel the disclosure. ;O)

Good post, but it doesn’t get to the heart of the matter! The US government has been suppressing the truth, world wide, because they know the truth!

There harvesting, what they want from us, and the most advanced country in the world, is powerless, to stop it!

“You want the truth, You can’t handle, the truth”

Excellent posting, demonstrating once again your keen sense of UFO history and your shrewd good sense. One tiny point, though, concerning the definition of rumor:

A rumor is neither true nor false. The word simply denotes an unverified story in circulation. A story can lack immediate verification and still contain some element of truth. Of course, we shouldn't count on it.

In any event, I don't expect to spend November 27 in wonderment at the President's big announcement. Rather, I'll be doing something more depressing: wondering, on that annual occasion which seems to arrive ever more quickly, how I got to be 63 years old.

A thought:
Nov 26 is Thanksgiving. Am I right? Presumably the announcement is intended to come the day after everyone in the US has stuffed themselves silly with turkey, cranberry sauce, wine and all the rest.
