Although it has been more than a week since Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick briefed the Senate Armed Services Committee about the progress and logistics of the UAP Program, I thought I’d add a few items I noticed. First, the room was lightly populated by Senators. There were just three.

Sean Kirkpatrick, who leads the All-domain Anomaly Office, known as ARRO, provided a statement that had little to do with their investigative work and more about the logistics of creating an investigative team.
UFOs, or UAPs or ETs, were mentioned twice. Kirkpatrick said, “In our research, ARRO has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology or objects that defy the known laws of physics.”
Later he said, “In the event sufficient scientific data were ever obtained that a UAP encountered can only be explained by extraterrestrial origin, we are committed to working with our interagency partners at NASA to appropriately inform the U.S. government's leadership of its findings.”

Ironically, he did say that there was a plan in place in case any alien activity is encountered. I can think of several cases in which the alien explanation is currently the only one available, including Roswell, Levelland and more recently Rendlesham Forest as but three examples. In all these cases there are multiple witnesses, some very high-ranking people involved but these are all outside the purview of ARRO. I do have to wonder exactly what this contingency plan that Kirkpatrick hinted about has to say.
The real point is that here we are a couple of years into this investigation and all we have are some statistics, several videos, and little real information about what they are doing, which, if we listened closely to Kirkpatrick, is investigating terrestrial threats, which are, of course, of national security interest.
To me, as I have said in the past, this is Robertson 2.0. One of the suggestions by the Robertson Panel, which, by the way, was sponsored by the CIA, was to take a mysterious sighting, report it, and then solve it. If we look carefully at this whole question of Navy cockpit videos and the government response, we see how That has been stage managed.
Those videos were mysterious. We are told they have been validated by the Navy, except the Navy wasn’t saying that the videos showed alien spacecraft. They were saying that yes, the videos did come from the Navy. They weren’t identifying the objects seen, other than to talk about the mysterious characteristics but now tell us that it was a technological glitch.
In the meantime, we now ignore the testimony by the pilots and crewmembers involved. No one has explained how a technological glitch in the cockpit of a fighter manifests itself as a blip on a surface vessel radar screen… oh, yes, we are told by skeptics there are always uncorrelated targets on the radar screens. Well, that explains that.
My point is that we are seeing the playing out how Robertson saw it in 1953. People will remember the explanation, even if that explanation is bogus. They’ll forget the details of the sighting.
The best example of this is the Mogul explanation for the Roswell crash. There are dozens of witnesses who talked about what they had seen themselves. They talked about the unusual properties of the debris and that the debris was widely scattered over a pasture near Corona, New Mexico.
But then comes the explanation. It was a balloon array and radar reflectors from the highly classified Project Mogul. Except what was going on in New Mexico wasn’t highly classified. In fact, it wasn’t classified at all. Pictures of the balloons were printed in the newspaper just two days after the announcement they had “captured” a flying saucer. True, the ultimate purpose was classified, but the experiments in New Mexico were not.
Claiming that it was Flight No. 4 of Project Mogul fails because the field notes and diary entries by the leader of the project in New Mexico, Dr. Albert Crary, documented the fact that Flight No. 4 was cancelled. Now few question how a flight that was cancelled could have spread debris on the Foster Ranch, and why that debris lay out there for more than a month before Mack Brazel found it in a field that he was in nearly every day. I have covered this here, on this blog and in both Roswell in the 21st Century and Understanding Roswell.
But I digress. ARRO is actually the Robertson Panel suggestion for explaining mysterious UFOs, I mean UAP sightings. I see what they’re doing but too many don’t understand the what is happening. They are now attempting to change UFO into UAP and overlook the long history of the phenomenon. They are giving us mysterious sightings and then explaining them. Just look at the numbers that Kirkpatrick provided in his latest, poorly attended briefing. Once, they had answers for only one of 144 incidents. Now, with many more sightings, they are explaining many more with language that sounds impressive but means nothing.
Or, in more precise language, I note that the program to rid the world of UFO reports, note I said reports as opposed to sightings, is being slowly implemented here. It took them a while to figure all this out after the Condon Committee’s “scientific” investigation failed to end the problem. After years of attempting to ignore it by deflecting reports to local law enforcement, we are at the point of information manipulation. They can’t provide all we need to know because of the specter of national security.
Some of us understand what is happening because we have been around for a long time and seen it all before. This is just the latest government program designed to influence civilian thought. But UFOs, I mean UAPs, are not going away. As an example, is a sighing from Ocean Shores, New South Wales, in Australia was reported on April 8 of this year. The witness, in his backyard watched an object that passed directly overhead. It was triangular in shape with about ten lights along the forward two sides and three on the trailing edge. None of the lights were flashing.
According to the witness, he could not see the stars within the triangle as it passed over. The UFO was the size of a football field (which is probably a soccer field given the location) and there was no sound. It appeared to be close and was in sight for about twenty seconds until it disappeared over a hill.
And, in keeping with the report from ARRO which provided a video of an orb, the witness in Bedford, Virginia, watched several orb-like objects for two minutes on April 7 of this year while driving. According to the witness, the orbs were low and moved erratically at high speed. They changed color from red to blue to green. The witness said that he looked to the rear to be sure there were no aircraft with lights or emergency vehicles there. There was a car in front and the witness was sure that they had seen the orbs as well.
I will note that neither of these sightings will make it into the new investigation because they come from the civilian world. That’s just another indication of government manipulation of our attitudes. Just thought I’d mention it.
