Human Deception at Play during the UFO Wave of 1947
| 1947 – the year that kick started the modern UFO era and included some of the most seminal events in its history, from the Maury Island incident to the June, 1947 Kenneth Arnold sighting to the July, 1947 Roswell event, as well as the coast to coast flying saucer sightings that dominated the world headlines. In the span of just a few weeks in the summer of 1947, UFOs, then popularly known as flying saucers had become as much a part of Americana as apple pie. |
To the modern day UFO believer, the UFO events of 1947
But I propose there was an extraordinary intelligence behind the events of 1947, not extraterrestrial in nature, but as flesh and blood as you or I, an intelligence born out of the exigencies of World War 2 but extended into peacetime as threats of renewed war loomed on the horizon.

In May of 1947, JSC received a revised charter, one that authorized it to continue its deception mission not just under wartime conditions but also during times of peace. JSC was tasked with preventing important military information from falling into the hands of the enemy, to control classified information through proper security classification, to correlate, maintain and disseminate all of the information furnished to JSC by the War and Navy Department Bureau of Public Relations, and finally the very important mission of cover and deception planning and implementation.
Before I conclusively draw a connection between early UFO events and JSC personnel, it is important to review the history of US post war deception planning.
