Coast-to-Coast AM: Secrecy and Updates


And I say, once again, welcome to 1947. I’ve mentioned in the past that in 1947, the military created a project to investigate the flying saucers. They treated the topic as something real and not imaginary. They were concerned about national security implications and Ed Ruppelt reported that high-ranking officers were in something of a panic. The project was classified and the official name was not releasable to the general public given the classified nature of the investigation. It was called Project Saucer in public but was code named Project Sign officially.

Just this last weekend, Christopher Mellon reported that the military, the government and the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) had issued new guidelines that would classify as “Secret” the videos like those released publicly in 2017. These “Tic-Tac) videos were not classified at the time, but would now, under the new guidelines, be classified. These new guidelines state, “Except for its existence, and the mission/purpose, virtually everything else about the UAPTF is classified, per the signed Security Classification Guide.”

This seems to suggest that everything that will be gathered by the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group, which seems to be a much more complicated name than necessary, will be operating under the same guidelines. In other words, nearly everything will be classified, which keeps it out of our hands, but more importantly, would inhibit the sharing of the information among the various government agencies that would benefit from easy access to the information. The Navy, because the information is now classified might be inclined to deny access to the Air Force, and the Air Force might be inclined to deny access to the Army. It is a situation that has plagued the military and various government agencies for decades.

As I say, so much for transparency.

This doesn’t mean that we no longer have access to interesting UFO reports. On February 15 of this year, in Aurora, Illinois, the witness opened the living room blinds and saw what he believed was a plane flying very low, just under the clouds. Which provides us with a suggestion that the object, whatever it was, was not an astronomical phenomenon, eliminating these explanations.

Although the witness thought it might be landing at a nearby airport, the craft did not look like a conventional airplane. It was triangular shaped with a white light at each corner. The object was in sight for about two minutes and then it just vanished rather than landing.

Near Holloman AFB in Alamogordo, New Mexico, the witness saw what was described as a formation of six lights on two separate craft on January 26 of this year. The witness was driving towards town and saw the lights that were stationary. The witness said that there were many aircraft and drones in the area, but the light configuration was nothing like those. The witness mentioned a good knowledge of the various aircraft and drone configurations that were often seen around Holloman. Although the witness stopped to take a picture with a cell phone, the UFOs simply disappeared before any photograph was taken. The witness said that these were UFOs and that weird things had been happening around Holloman.

Finally, on Christmas Eve last year, the witness reported a formation of steady red lights that were traveling north to south in Bettendorf, Iowa. As the UFOs approached, they suddenly disappeared. There was no noise and the witness said he originally thought they were drones until they disappeared. The witness took pictures of the formation.

Bettendorf, Iowa on Christmas Even, 2021.

I’ll note here that I selected these last cases because the witnesses’ first thoughts were about drones. This seems to be a growing problem because there are now so many drones around and by putting a few LEDs on them, a rather convincing sighting can be faked. It’s just one more thing that we must watch for as we investigate UFO sightings.
