A video posted a few weeks ago of what appears to be an alien being recovered by the military has gone viral. It has racked up nearly one million hits since the writing of this story. However, a UFO researcher did some digging and found out it was actually part of a mock military battle in which teams try to recover a fake alien from a crashed spacecraft.
The video in question (seen above) was posted by YouTuber UFOvni2012. OVNI is a term for UFO used by Latin countries. In Spanish it stands for “objeto volador no identificado.” The phrase is also used in Italian and French.
The person who posted it presumably does not speak English as their primary language, as their English is a little rough. The video starts with the words: “A UFO could have been an accident. The military had taken a dead Alien. Apparently they hid hidden the discovery [sic].”
The video then goes on to show an image of an alien strapped to a stretcher with a military-style machine gun. The stretcher is surrounded by men in cammo with patches on their arms, and can only be partially seen in the edges of the picture. . . .
Saturn's huge moon Titan just got a little more mysterious.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has spotted an odd islandlike feature in Ligeia Mare, one of Titan's largest hydrocarbon seas. Scientists don't know what to make of the feature, which has apparently doubled in size over the past year or so, from about 30 square miles to 60 square miles (78 to 155 square kilometers).
"Science loves a mystery, and with this enigmatic feature, we have a thrilling example of ongoing change on Titan," Cassini radar team deputy leader Stephen Wall, of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said in a statement. "We're hopeful that we'll be able to continue watching the changes unfold and gain insights about what's going on in that alien sea." . . .
"This is a huge embarrassment for the MoD and will have UFO enthusiasts up in arms. When the government said that all its UFO files had been released, conspiracy theorists didn't believe everything had been made public and it turns out they were right. The 18 files include ones from RAF radar specialists and from the ultra-secretive Defence Intelligence Staff, so there may be some fascinating revelations still to come"In 2008 Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) famously announced that the entirety of their yet unreleased files which related directly to the UFO matter would be declassified and made public over a number of years. This process was supposedly completed in June, 2013 with the release of the last batch of files to the British National Archives. It was one of the largest reviews of MoD files on such a narrow topic in decades. The public and the press were told that this laborious task effectively concluded the MoD’s holding of classified UFO files.
– Nick Pope, former Intelligence Officer, Secretariat AS 2a, Air Staff, Ministry Defence, United Kingdom
Unfortunately, we have been misinformed.
On the 25th of August, 2014, researcher Andy Russell submitted an enquiry to the MoD regarding the holding of unreleased UFO files. His stimulus for this action seems to have been a review of the well-known and well-verified claims of retired United States Air Force (USAF) Sgt. John Burroughs regarding the Bentwaters Air Force Base/Rendlesham Forest UFO events of 1980. The enquiry to the MoD was treated as a submission under the British Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and was duly replied to by the FOI desk on the 11th of September, 2014. A web-based image of the reply letter, as mandated, also appeared on the MoD's FOI responses of the week listings. In this reply letter, with the name of the enquirer redacted (blacked out) a short excerpt of the original letter to the MoD is included. It sums up the request as follows:
"Whether documents covering the period 1971-76 and 1996-2000 titled 'UFO policy' and three other documents covering the periods June-Dec 2000, Dec 2000-Mar 2004 and March 2004 exist, and if so are they still 'classified'."The MoD’s 2 page response, with page 1 included below, outlines that a number of files – 18 to be exact – were indeed found within the MoD’s systems; and, as we shall see, they may be rather significant. The MoD’s response also stated that the files will be released to the The National Archives. However, no one at the MoD or the National Archives will be working up a sweat to redact, declassify and open them for public consumption because the time frame for this process is indicated to take around 9 months. As for the actual MoD response in imaged form:
If this isn't enough to raise the eyebrows of UFO researchers, the second page of the MoD’s response most certainly will. Unlike previously released UFO files – the vast majority of which contain civilian reports, standard internal memoranda, enquiries from the public, etc – that have titles as innocuous as "DEFE-24-2019-1", these 18 newly "discovered" file titles appear to be much more specific, and, quite possibly contain some of what we cherish: rare, verifiable, undeniable evidence that something pretty noteworthy is being monitored in the skies and investigated by certain specialized agencies within a modern defence establishment. The second page of the MoD's response is imaged below. One only needs to study some of the acronyms and terminology in the titles, which I will be discussing at length, to realise that there is much we have not been told.
In my yet-to-be posted Part 2 of this particular file fiasco, I will be discussing the files themselves by file-title, and the possible contents of such files. I will also be touching on the extraordinary history of British MoD incompetence, misinformation, and, at times, blatant dishonesty regarding their treatment of the UFO matter.
UFOs caught on camera move into cloud cover
|By Roger Marsh|
A Colorado witness at Idaho Springs reported watching three bright light UFOs that moved “straight up into the clouds” about 1:16 a.m. today, according to testimony in Case 60176 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was working the night shift at the twin tunnels when he stopped to take a photograph of the tunnel and mountain.
“Someone else noticed the lights and pointed them out to us,” the witness stated. “Myself and many others all watched as they slowly flew straight up into the clouds. It was overcast and a bit foggy so they had to be pretty close. I didn’t realize until later that I had taken pictures of it.” . . .

A SCOTSMAN believes he spotted a UFO as he sat watching TV this morning.
Vincent Smith, from Blantyre near Glasgow, was watching coverage of ongoing protests in Hong Kong on BBC news when a bright object descended in the top right of the screen.
It is seen flying diagonally before landing on a building and then shooting off vertically and at speed.
Vincent could not identify the object as anything recognisable and is heard asking on the video: "What is that?"

The UFO Chronicles
I have always had a grudging admiration for Kevin's ability to write fiction. Anybody who can write many dozens of novels deserves respect. I guess I can accept a smart computer that somehow says the opposite of the truth about the CT Memo. At least we both agree it is not signed and there is no /s/. But why not note that the absence of signature is a sign of genuineness? We didn't know until well after the memo was discovered that Cutler was out of the country at that time. Why didn't the supposed (mythical) hoaxer merely add one or the other?? He is accused of adding Truman's signature. Why accuse me of saying the latter was an exact match to the one on the Bush letter? It was Kevin not me that said "exact" match. I have accepted the official findings of forensic document examiner Black as stated to Dr. Robert M. Wood that it was appended because of the feathering. Ike might well have preferred documents with signatures. Even Karl Pflock agreed that the CIA could have copied the signature.
Yes, let us talk about provenance. What is the basis for the claim that all leaked documents have a provenance? In this case the Provider of the EBD was guilty of a crime. A hoaxer wasn’t. As Kevin knows full well photographing and distributing a TOP SECRET Restricted document to somebody without an appropriate security clearance and need-to-know is a violation of the law. Hoaxing generally is not. Why not just say "gotcha?!" Suppose the CTM was taken by one of the declassifers (all of whom had high level clearance) and put in a jacket pocket and then later placed in Box 189? Two step process. Nobody would tell me their names.
Yes, let's not argue about the distance to the crash site. We have a highly classified preliminary briefing about an extraordinarily important event which happened 5 years earlier. The approximate distance really doesn't matter. Which route was taken?
How did the (mythical) hoaxer know that, contrary to the official claims made, that TOP SECRET RESTRICTED was in use?? Psychic I guess. How did he know that Donald Menzel would pass muster as having a very high security clearance and a very long connection with the NSA … psychic I guess.
I never talk about Willingham. What is meant by "we believed"? As Tonto said to the Lone Ranger: what do you mean "we", white man? Why is it the fatal flaw? I know that I do not have access to classified files at Sandia or elsewhere and so far as I know, Kevin doesn't either. That he didn't find anything about an "El Indio- Guerrero" crash in the unclassified world means nothing. Any information about a crashed saucer recovered on December 6, 1950, and taken to Sandia would have been highly classified just as was any analysis of the Roswell, Plains of San Agustin, or Aztec crashes. December 6, 1950, was the date of a major security alert involving motion of an object(s) in the sky. Roswell and Kenneth Arnold were highly publicized events. The Plains and Aztec were not. I strongly recommend the outstanding and comprehensive research about Aztec done by Scott and Suzanne Ramsey as reported in "The Aztec Incident"... Bruce
Maccabee and Grant Cameron have written about the Dec.6, 1950 national security alert.
I don't think Kevin has provided some sort of statement that this preliminary briefing would provide a listing and details of all saucer crashes. The first one provides the basic data saying Man is not alone... an incredibly important statement. The Briefing of Ike at the Pentagon on November 18, 1952, only lasted under 50 minutes. As stated "It should be regarded as introductory to a full operations briefing intended to follow." Introductory surely doesn't mean comprehensive.
I certainly am not impressed by a kind of guilt by association with Richard Doty and the Aquarius documents. Let us look at the EBD, CT, and TF. No, I don't want to get into the false testimony of Frank Kaufmann and others. At least he admitted he had lied about taking Blanchard and Marcel to the Debris field. I still would like to know from those who say the 3 documents are phony and why they make that claim. How did anybody know the details that unexpectedly turned out to be true???

The Smoking Gun of the Rosetta Deception
|By James Carrion|
After writing the book the Rosetta Deception (available for free at rosettadeception.blogspot.com ), I have been in a constant search for corroborating information to bolster the theory that the Ghost Rockets over northern and southern Europe in 1946 were the product of a strategic deception operation by the US and UK against the Soviets with the endgame being the breaking of the Soviet diplomatic code. I have now uncovered the smoking gun evidence for the deception.
I didn’t have to dig through Government archives - those records are for sure still classified and will remain so despite any Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests - I simply had to examine the open source evidence that the deception planners could not hide away in locked file cabinets marked Top Secret - the New York Times online newspaper archive for 1946 providing the necessary clues.
At the same time the Ghost Rockets were flying over Europe, another geopolitical event of enormous importance - the Paris Peace Conference was being held July 29, 1946 to October 15, 1946 – also playing a role in the Rosetta Deception. The Paris Peace Conference involved the victorious WW2 powers of the US, UK, France and the Soviet Union negotiating war reparations and the redrawn borders of Italy, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Finland. But it is how these two events played out in the US news media that reveals the inner workings of the Rosetta Deception.
If you have taken the time to read the book, you will understand how complicated the deception operation was and how important the timing of each step was to pull off a successful operation. In Chapter 53 of the book, titled appropriately “Timing is Everything” I explained the chronological rationale for the events that took place. I will reiterate some of that here but first let me recap for the reader who has not had the chance to read the book or who maybe started and never finished it, the crux of the deception operation. To break the Soviet diplomatic code, this was the blueprint followed:
1. Create anxiety on the part of the Soviets that some country was experimenting with advanced missile technology first over northern Europe in Scandinavia and later over southern Europe. The Soviets knew they were not involved but would be desperate to find out who was.
2. Influence the Scandinavian countries to declare a news blackout on the Ghost Rockets at the end of July 1946 but keep the stories alive in the American Press.
3. Because of heavy FBI surveillance, Soviet agents in the United States were operating at reduced capacity with most of the intelligence gleaned coming from the American Press. Any sensitive intelligence that a Soviet agent wanted to communicate to Moscow was done through Soviet diplomatic channels. Since the Soviets could only use radio in the event of an emergency, they relied on US commercial telegraph carriers to transmit encrypted messages back to Moscow.
4. Known as Operation Shamrock, the major US telegraph companies were making copies of encrypted Soviet messages and sending these to the Army Security Agency (ASA), the predecessor of the NSA. The attempted breaking of these Soviet messages is what became later known as the Venona Project.
5. The ASA had two major challenges to deal with to break the Soviet diplomatic code as the code was double encrypted – first by a code book and second by a one-time pad. The ASA had already discovered at this point a tedious method to break the second layer of encryption based on a Soviet screw up in their cryptographic practices as each one-time pad had been manufactured more than once and was essentially a two-time pad. The code book however had to be rebuilt completely from scratch.
6. To speed up the whole process, the US/UK used a technique known as gardening – planting text that the Soviets would unknowingly encrypt as intelligence and send back to Moscow. The intercepted traffic could then be decrypted by exploiting the Soviet screw up in pad manufacture. Through comparative analysis the second layer of encryption could be removed revealing the first layer of encryption that required a code book to read.
7. To reconstruct the Soviet code book – the first level of encryption would be examined for tell- tale “cartouches”, code groups that contained Anglicized names that literally had to be spelled out character by character from a spell table that represented the Latin characters. Once these Anglicized names were isolated, the surrounding code groups that represented Russian words from the code book could be guessed based on knowledge of the planted text. This would allow the code book of 10,000 Russia words to be reconstructed out of thin air. The more plain text that could be planted and communicated by the Soviets through diplomatic channel, the better the chances were of reconstructing the Soviet code book.
8. Once the code book was reconstructed, it could be put to use decrypting all other Soviet diplomatic code messages hoping that the messages contained information about Soviet spies in the United States and other persons of interest to US/UK counterintelligence.
The wild card that the deception operators were most concerned with was how to force Soviet intelligence in the US to send planted text in the American press via encrypted Soviet diplomatic channels rather than through open non-encrypted channels. In other words, what was stopping the Soviet TASS news agency from sending US newspaper stories in the clear via standard wireless radio or telegraphic communication, and not via encrypted Soviet diplomatic channels? The answer? Using what the Soviets claimed their system of Communism championed – the rights of the common worker.
On August 7, 1946, a strike by 300 Press Wireless workers was called in New York, Washington and San Francisco by the American Communications Association (ACA). Press Wireless, Inc. supplied newspapers and press associations with news reports from abroad, not obtaining news but transmitting messages by radio between the United States and fourteen countries in Europe, Asia and South America. In its peak year, 1945, it handled 157,000,000 words or an average of over 430,000 daily. In 1946, communication from the US to Europe was sent either through standard radio communication, radio telegraph or transoceanic telegraph cable. The first voice over transoceanic cable was not functional until the 1950s.
The reason for the strike was the decision by Press Wireless to lay off or reduce the wages of 46 employees because of a sharp reduction in traffic since the end of WW2. Despite a no-strike clause in the labor management contract, the Union refused to call off the strike until the employees were reinstated and the company refused to reinstate until after arbitration.
A week later, the ACA extended the strike, ordering its members in all other cable and wireless companies and foreign operations centers not to handle overseas press messages. The New York Newspaper Guild in turn told its members not to handle Press Wireless messages, prompting the New York Times to issue front page apologies from August 14 till the news embargo ended on August 19, stating that because of the strike, certain foreign news stories could not be published. The strike effectively curtailed most of the radio and cable transmission of international news to and from the US.
Affected by the expanded news embargo which began at 2 PM on August 12 was the Soviet TASS news agency. The Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union (TASS) was the central news agency for the collection and distribution of internal and international news for all Soviet news media (newspaper, radio and television). It had a monopoly on official state information, most of which was not published in the Soviet Union but issued as information for Soviet officials. The agency was frequently infiltrated by the Soviet intelligence and security agencies and many of its employees also voluntarily served as information sources for the KGB.
So imagine you are a TASS/KGB agent and the method you have used for normally transmitting media reports of intelligence importance has suddenly been cut off. What do you do? You find a different channel of communication. The strike affected all news agency message traffic, but commercial traffic was exempted. Soviet diplomatic personnel relied on US commercial telegraph companies to transmit encrypted messages to Moscow, a communication channel which was also routinely used by the Soviet intelligence agencies. In light of normal overt communication channels being cut off, the commercial channel could act as the backdoor for transmitting media articles on the Ghost Rockets and the Paris Peace Talks to Moscow - media articles that were planted by the deception planners with the full cooperation of newspapers like the New York Times.
Rosetta assets had considerable experience infiltrating labor unions, learning from the best of the best – British Intelligence in the guise of British Security Coordination (BSC), also based in New York City. For these experienced operatives, it was child’s play to kick off the strike and manipulate both sides until the deception planner’s goals were met.
The Rosetta deception planners created a bottleneck of information flow for the Soviet intelligence agencies in the US at a very crucial time – a time when Moscow desperately needed overt information to flow on the Ghost Rockets and what the US media was reporting on the Paris Peace Conference. That bottleneck forced transmission through the commercial telegraph carriers who were more than happy to transmit encrypted news media stories while rejecting all overt news media and simultaneously feeding these encrypted messages back to the ASA/GCCS where allied codebreakers would attempt to break the Soviet diplomatic code. Ingenious really – and the fact that this story has only come to light some seventy years later – attests to both the thorough detailed planning and execution of the deception and the extreme compartmentalized secrecy of the operation.
From August 12 – 19, 1946, just one short week when TASS was forced to use the encrypted Soviet diplomatic channel to send US news media stories to Moscow, the US/UK deception planners completely controlled the information flow between Soviet Intelligence on American soil and Moscow Centre, a code breaking feat that even the Anglo code breakers of the enigma code and the Japanese cypher could not claim.
The US/UK governments have no reason to hide the details of this operation from the world. The events transpired almost 70 years ago and the methods used no longer apply in a world where information flows across the globe in fractions of a second. It is time for the truth to be told and the deception planners acknowledged for their ingenuity and resourcefulness. If the history books on the Cold War have to be revised accordingly, so be it.
It is time for the magicians of Rosetta to take a bow for their incredible performance.

Near Collison with Plane & UFO – Report Released
SHARE YOUR UFO EXPERIENCE
|By Roger Marsh|
West Virginia witnesses at Elkins reported watching and following a low flying , triangle-shaped UFO that eventually appeared to cloak itself and disappear about 8:40 p.m. on September 25, 2014, according to testimony in Case 60101 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness and his wife were driving south out of Elkins on Beverly Pike when two bright orange lights were observed low in the sky.
“The light on the right was higher than the one on the left, suggesting the object had just changed direction or was banking from a western direction of travel to a northern direction of travel,” the witness stated.
The couple moved closer to the object.
“We watched the lights get closer and appear level as the object was traveling due north in the opposite direction of travel from us. We noticed a third, dim white light in the front of the object, thus forming a triangle of lights with the two orange orbs to the rear/side.”
The witness described the object.
“As we got closer I noticed the orange lights were hourglass-shaped. Last night was very clear and devoid of any cloud cover. This made it possible to discern the shape of the object was indeed a triangle, flat black in color, reflecting no light.” . . .
Alien Intent—Human Explication
|By Frank Warren|
The UFO Chronicles
There are multitudes of not only Ufologists, but also scientists and on the other side, self-proclaimed skeptics etc., who seem to have an inside track on the psychology of ET. In listening to some, one would think that they’ve had intimate encounters with our alleged visitors, and or have studied their societies for years. (If in fact they have societies at all).
Many propose their motives, and why things happen or don’t; for example, regarding Roswell, some have stated that, “the crash of an ET craft” isn’t possible because ET would be too far advanced in their respective technologies for that to happen.
Still others claim that ET is just as fallible as we humans, regardless of their superiority over us. Scientists of course argue that ET can’t be here, as the distances are too vast to travel, (unscientifically) presuming that ET is humanlike, roughly the same age as the human race and functioning at a similar level of technological advancement.
Skeptics have often echoed the sentiments that if UFOs were indeed alien spacecraft, then they would obviously make contact with the governments of the earth. Conspiracists theorize they indeed already have, and work in conjunction with a macabre faction of the powers-that-be.
Most theologians, who seem to know what the “Supreme ET” of all is thinking, say that we are alone.
Some very esteemed Ufologists have suggested that ET has been visiting the planet since the first detonation of the A-bomb; that much like Star Trek,” a “Federation of Planets” is concerned, much akin to children playing with a gun.
Within these various dogmas lies a common thesis; they are all based from human logic or anthropocentrism; therefore, the foundation to which they (said dogmas) are predicated is non-existent! I submit that trying to deduce alien intentions/ideologies with human explication to quote (speaking of Star Trek) one of my favorite extraterrestrials “is not logical!”
Barring abductions, there isn’t enough data to surmise any alien ideology of any sort; to suggest otherwise is nonsensical. In order to postulate a theorem about an extraterrestrial life form at the very least, some facts are obligatory; for example, are they carbon based? Do they require sustenance? Are they societal? Do they possess emotions, etc?
Without further data there is only speculation; that speculation is futile, unless ET is analogous to the human species. Naturally that notion can’t be ruled out either, given the lack of information.
Ultimately, in order to validate the various licenses taken by so many, the preface must be, “If ET is akin to the human species, then I believe . . .” as it is currently impossible to presume “alien” intent by human explication.
