America's most prominent military agency confirms it still investigates UFOs

NY Post - "Pentagon finally admits on-going UFO Investigations"

Press Release
For Immediate Distribution

Toronto [ZNN] As reported by the Washington Post, the Pentagon late in December 2017 acknowledged they had investigated UFOs from 2007 to 2012 with funds obtained from the US Senate. Pentagon officials indicated to the Washington Post that the program ended in 2012.

We now learn this was and is not the case at all.

In a New York Post article today by Steven Greenstreet - he was told by Department of Defence spokesman Christopher Sherwood that although DoD said it shut down the Advance Ariel Threat Identification Program (AATIP) in 2012 - Sherwood acknowledged that the department still investigates claimed sightings of alien spacecraft.

Sherwood went on to say, “The Department of Defense is always concerned about maintaining positive identification of all aircraft in our operating environment, as well as identifying any foreign capability that may be a threat to the homeland,” 

This reversal - or as many in the UFO research community may describe as a 'walking-back' of earlier claims that AATIP had been terminated - ultimately confirms the suspicions of former AATIP Program Director Luis Elizondo's previously expressed sentiments that this program was still in operation.

The NY Post article now confirms Elizondo's suspicions.

ZNN reported earlier that the US Navy is now allowing pilots to freely report their UFO sightings and interactions without impunity or the once strictly-enforced disciplinary measures for speaking out.

The results of this? These statements by the Pentagon and the US Navy that allow open discussions about policy changes to the UFO matter are setting off alarm bells within other military agencies. 

These new admissions on UFOs are critically important in two ways.

First - two of the top US military agencies have now clearly acknowledged UFO investigations and concerns about the origin of UFOs as being off-planet.

Speculation and possible internal judgements are now prevalent among military officials that UFO sightings may now be interpreted as affecting the National Security of the United States. 

This conclusion is the result of pilot observations that the unexplained objects display unknown and highly advanced technologies, speeds and flight characteristics. One of the pilots involved in the first US Navy acknowledged engagement with UFOs is on record as saying these craft are not our technology.

Secondly, the US Air Force - because of the acknowledgement of UFOs as a concern, will undoubtedly be forced to revise its long standing contention.

From investigating UFO reports since 1948, the United States Air Force has concluded that:

"No UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security;

There was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as "unidentified" represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge; and

There was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as "unidentified" were extraterrestrial vehicles."

These three conclusions are now not only in question and in complete contradiction to the revised positions on UFOs by the US Navy and the US Pentagon but - even the most casual observer would conclude that the US Air Force is stridently and irresponsibly maintaining a thread-bare political position from the 14th century that viewed the Earth as the centre of the solar system.

Furthermore - the US Air Force also maintains:

"Since the termination of Project Blue Book, nothing has occurred that would support a resumption of UFO investigations by the Air Force. Given the current environment of steadily decreasing defense budgets, it is unlikely the Air Force would become involved in such a costly project in the foreseeable future."

This USAF statement demonstrates beyond any doubt that the United States Air Force is seriously out-of-step with its military partners.

How and when the USAF will re-think and revise its position is of valid concern to many in the US government. ZNN also wonders if these questions will ever be addressed by the current administration in the White House.

Washington Post Exposes US Navy pilots’ Frustration about UFOs

How angry pilots got the Navy to stop dismissing UFO sightings

[NOTE: This press release was updated on April 27.]

Press Release
For Immediate Distribution

Courtesy Kitchendecorclub
Toronto [ZNN] In a candid April 25th 2019 article by Deanna Paul, the Washington Post has once again delved into what the US Navy has known but has never openly acknowledged. The issue: US Navy pilots are observing and interacting with craft of unknown origin at an unprecedented rate, however pilots have been thwarted by regulations not to report their observations.

This dramatic and no nonsense piece of journalism by Ms. Paul provides a gateway of understanding to how and why the Navy is walking back on decades of silence on UFOs.

It opens countless doors.

Might this Washington Post journalist, her colleagues and editorial staff be introducing a new era of open discourse about what appears to be the greatest issue to face the human family? 

Who is Who in High Places
Ms. Paul has managed to reveal explicit admissions and deep concerns about UFOs among high level Naval operations officials and Senate intelligence sources.

In her article Ms. Paul indicated Joseph Gradisher, spokesman for the office of the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, told The Washington Post on Wednesday, “We want to get to the bottom of this. We need to determine who’s doing it, where it’s coming from and what their intent is.” 

Chris Mellon, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence and staffer on the Senate Intelligence Committee also stated in Ms. Paul's article, “It’s very mysterious, and the UAPs [unexplained aerial phenomenon] still seem to exceed our aircraft in speed,” he said - calling it a “truly radical technology.”

New guidelines for pilot reports have been drafted to enable pilots to put forward their observations without fear of career ending recrimination.

Luis Elizondo, a former senior intelligence officer, told The Post that the new Navy guidelines formalized the reporting process, facilitating data-driven analysis while removing the stigma from talking about UFOs, calling it “the single greatest decision the Navy has made in decades.”

These events - when coupled with the December 2017 NY Times announcement that the US Pentagon carried on a Senate funded UFO investigation program, may indeed represent an extraordinary shift in military policy on UAP disclosures.
These revised practices by specific military agencies are beginning to cast doubt on the US government's capacity to maintain its stranglehold on secrecy about UFOs by withholding and outright lying to the public about the existence of UFOs. 

This move by the Navy could make current modes of operational policy outdated for other arms of the military, the White House and US Intelligence agencies who have long maintained denial, secrecy and silence as their strategy.  

Critical Questions to be Asked and Answered 
  • Does this revised approach to UAP open-messaging by the Pentagon and now the US Navy emanate from a single source within the military or is it being extruded from an inside shadow group that may be covertly vectoring and hastening the pace of disclosure? 
  • Now that the US Navy has revised its position on UFOs will the US Air Force be forced to also revise its outdated policies?
  • Has Ms. Paul identified a fissure in the 70 year-old wall of secrecy surrounding the UFO cover-up?

Other Media?
The Current - a Canadian national investigative radio program covered this Pentagon story in December 2017 on the advice of ZNN. 

Mainstream media - lead by the New York Times and the Washington Post in addition to POLITICO, the Huffington Post and dozens of international news outlets are playing catch up in a frenzy to understand what level of disclosure these revelations represent. 

Can the military be trusted and, how much further will it go before it becomes the sole Disclosure agent? Right now discourse seems to be headed in the direction of truth-telling or is this simply another form of misdirection?

Don't change the channel - this could change at any moment.
Historically, the Navy has been cast as the only military arm of the US defence system to have the goods on the UFO issue. In 1960 - as reported by the NY Times - Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter and the CIA's first Director was quoted as saying that,"   [B]ehind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFO's. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense." The retired Admiral also charged that "to hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel through the issuance of a regulation."
Pidgeons and Predators
Given the recent coverage and the preponderance of world-wide interest, the question of UFO Disclosure seems to have become an evolving reality to end UFO secrecy and silence.

Once the pigeons are out of the coop it's hard, if not impossible, to get them back inside. Of course the falcons and other predators still lurk in the darkness of government mendacity as the pigeons freely roam the skies with their messages.

For now, the media is our only hope to create a national dialogue about the greatest issue to face the human family. This issue has awaited relentless journalism similar to Ms. Paul's to raise it to the level of Watergate, The Pentagon Papers and the exposure of the mess in Washington DC. 

Let's hope Ms. Paul's article on this matter is not her last.

Two of Canada's leading Mainstream Media outlets cover the UFO Issue... again.

Press Release - for Immediate Distribution

Photo by Artem Kovalev
Toronto [ZNN] Once again the Toronto Star - Canada's leading newspaper with 3,186,000 weekly readers - has made a formidable editorial decision to cover the UFO issue. The Star joins the CBC in a new era of coverage.

What has the Toronto Star done?
The Toronto Star, with a global footprint rivalling that of the NY Times and Washington Post both online and in print circulation - has been a dominant force in Canadian journalism and politics since 1892 - injecting itself into prominence in matters of social justice and civil engagement. A new cause may be on its horizon.

In the last several months the Toronto Star has covered the UFO issue in seven separate articles. These articles by Star reporters and from other syndications, including the Star's Washington DC bureau - have dealt with the UFO matter in a straightforward manner while leaving behind the traditional 'ridicule' that has characterized media coverage in the past.

What has the CBC done?
Not only has Canada's leading newspaper determined that the UFO issue has traction among readers, the CBC Radio national news network has also made a similar determination. 

 The CURRENT - CBC Radio's award- winning investigative news program airs daily across Canada and on Sirius satellite radio. The Current covered the UFO matter as recently as December 2017 when it delved into the US Pentagon's $22 million UFO Investigation Program (AATIP) funded by the US Senate. (See below)

The Power of Corporate Journalism
These determinations by two of Canada's most read and listened to news media outlets create a serious journalistic platform upon which the public can base informed conclusions and questions about a matter that has been largely ignored by corporate media - are we alone in the cosmos?

Not only does coverage of this nature spark interest among the general public - this ongoing coverage by the Star and the CBC is raising the bar for a broader discussion about government secrecy and its well-documented and decades-long involvement in the UFO matter. 

Corporate media may or may not fully realize the political significance of the UFO matter - yet. But one thing is certain - government secrecy concerning UFO's has never been a major item of media coverage - until now. 

The UFO matter appears to have received the imprimatur of publishers and editors who may further decide to attack this issue politically from within a corporate agenda in Canada.

With a new generation of followers that include 4,619,000 monthly readers on their mobile devices, 2,061,000 on desktop computers and 839,000 on tablets, the prescient nature of this issue will soon become a topic of conversation about the authenticity of the UFO phenomenon and when its ultimate disclosure to the public will occur.

The UFO community still believes, and science is starting to listen

Larry King's Blockbuster Interview of Area 51 Scientist Bob Lazar

Bob Lazar - Time to set the Record Straight

PRESS RELEASE - For Immediate Distribution

Cape Coral Florida [ZNN] Larry King, legendary TV host and CNN television journalist has awakened renewed interest in the story of Bob Lazar - a scientist who was responsible for bringing the secret test site Area 51 into prominence in 1989.

Larry King’s interview on ORA – Larry King NOW of Bob Lazar and film producer Jeremy Corbell describes, in minute detail, Lazar’s encounters with alien craft, alien bodies, the exotic propulsion energy compound Element 115 purportedly used in flying saucers and FBI raids by over two dozen agents on Lazar’s property to acquire documents and samples of Element 115. 
Lazar: "There's a lot of weird stories and incorrect information... passed around for decades... it's time to set something straight."
During the King interview, Corbell and Lazar warn that the exotic energy source – Element 115 - may soon be weaponized by the US military but, may have already become a secret weapon in the US military arsenal.

Initially brought forward during an interview in May of 1989 with investigative reporter George Knapp on Las Vegas TV station KLAS, Lazar discussed his employment at “S-4” - a subsidiary facility he claimed exists near the United States Air Force facility Area 51. After decades of denial the US government acknowledged the existence of Area 51 in 2013.
Jeremy Corbell: "A lot of Presidents... even the Clintons have tried to officially get this information out to the public but have been shutdown..."

Lazar maintains the facility was adjacent to Papoose Lake, which is located south of the main Area 51 facility at Groom Lake. The facility included concealed aircraft hangars built into a mountainside. Lazar stated that he was involved there in the reverse engineering of several flying saucers.

The 26 minute King interview is both stunning and definitive in describing not only how the question of UFOs, extraterrestrial visitations and exotic off-world energy sources have been exposed by individuals like Lazar and Corbell, but also how the American government has sought to discredit Lazar and others in order to hide the reality of UFOs, their off-world origin, sea-change energy sources and the ostensible benefits these energy sources may have for the human family and the planet.

The 26 minute interview is available as a whole, however three brief segments are available for quick reference.

Segment One - 1 minute 51 seconds: HERE
Segment Two – 1 minute 16 seconds: HERE
Segment Three - 1 minute: HERE
