I have been saying that the Congressional UAP report is actually Twining 2.0. I have posted a long analysis of the Twining letter of September 1947 that says many of the same things that we saw in the latest report. I made this case last night when I appeared on Rob McConnell’s X-Zone radio show. You can listen to it here:
The point was, or is, that the Twining letter, written after a look at 16 flying saucer sightings that involved some 35 witnesses, suggested that the phenomenon, meaning the flying saucers, was something real and not visionary or fictitious. It suggested that the data were incomplete and it called for additional study.
|General Nathan F. Twining|
This is the situation that we have today. The UAP study was made up on 144 reports which might not be 144 separate incidents. It suggested that they lacked sufficient information and that many of the reports were incomplete. More study was required to identify the objects seen. In other words, the phenomenon was something real and not visionary and fictitious.
Here we are, nearly 75 years after Twining wrote his letter, at the same point. We have put up with millions of dollars in investigations, research, studies and committees, and all we can say is the same thing that was said all those decades ago.
I suggested that those making this study should have taken the time to look at the history of UFO research. I mean, the entire output of Project Blue Book is online. The Robertson Panel and the Condon Committee work is readily available in various forms and books and platforms. I would have thought that one of the very first things that would have been done was for those tasked with creating these nine pages of high school level research, at the very least, would be to see what had been done in the past. That, apparently didn’t happen.
So, Congress mandated a report and gave them 180 days to complete it. What we got was nine pages that said, well, we looked at these reports but we don’t know what the witnesses saw. It could be any number of things and probably was one of those many things, meaning that there are probably mundane explanations for most of the sightings. There isn’t a single solution but many solutions.
Haven’t we already seen that in all the years of UFO investigations? Sightings resolved by astronomical events (meteors, comets, stars seen under unusual conditions), meteorological events (sundogs, ice crystals, strange clouds and so on), aircraft that have fooled people and other such mundane things. This report suggests drones and plastic bags blown aloft and other such things might explain some of the reports, but, according to the report, they don’t know.
And, while they don’t rule out the alien aspect, they don’t really suggest it as a viable solution. In other words, we’re exactly where we were in 1947 when General Twining wrote his letter.
This nine-page report is really a joke… it is a dodge created to fulfill the Congressional mandate. They can say, well, you wanted a report and here it is. Never mind that it covered a very short period of time and that the witnesses were mostly military. There were some instruments involved suggesting a reality to the sightings. We don’t know what they saw and we’ll continue to look… until you forget about it and we can move onto other missions.
And this is why I say that it is Twining 2.0. Now we’ll have additional research and investigation until we reach the point where these events will be identified in the mundane and we have Condon 2.0. The “authority” figures have looked at this phenomenon again and tell us, “Nothing to see here. Move along.”
