What’s Up With The Slow Dribble of Jet Fighter/UFO Videos?

TTSA needs a new game plan

     OK, seriously. What’s up with the molasses-slow dribble of jet fighter/UFO videos being posted by this To The Stars Academy thing? Is there a plan here? Some sort of strategy not immediately obvious to the naked eye? Or is this what it’s beginning to look like, that nobody’s really in charge?

It’s been more than a week since The Washington Post ran that op-ed piece by Christopher Mellon, in which the former deputy secretary of defense for

intelligence under two administrations made a pitch for renewed and fully funded government research into The Great Taboo. Mellon’s appeal was air-tight on logic, but since nothing succeeds like visuals, the biggest buzz wasn’t about what he said, but the accompanying video showing yet another UFO eluding a Navy warplane.

In a near-rerun of last December, when TTSA – the private for-profit corporation to which Mellon is an advisor – dropped the first two UFO chase sequences recorded by F-18s into the public domain, corporate media pounced all over this one, too. And why not? Exuberant audio exchanges between pilots who appear to be witnessing something completely extraordinary are a welcome respite from the unremitting rhythms of disappointment, mediocrity, hopelessness and despair that dominate news cycles today. Even traditional debunking platforms like Popular Mechanics are approaching the latest vid with a less jaundiced eye. For once, the geek-zine isn’t shrugging this one off with its best worst guess.

If one of TTSA’s goals is to get people talking, they’ve succeeded on that end, at least for the moment. But what exactly do they want to accomplish? There’s the money angle, of course, which they’ve actually extolled. Attempting to democratize what Jacques Vallee once labeled “Forbidden Science” by researching and exploiting UFO-type physics with transparency is a bold maneuver. Since going public in October, the TTSA has been inviting crowd-funders to participate by investing a cumulative $50 million in the project.

But the kitty is stuck at just under $2.5 million, and it hasn’t budged in months. Why is that? Anybody can play, for a lousy $200 commitment. Maybe it’s the business plan, which they’ve posted online. But De Void has only skimmed the TTSA circular, because there seems to be a more obvious impediment.

Four months ago, TTSA released the first two videos, complete with an implicit Defense Department imprimatur, an unprecedented development. The gambit was accompanied by equally unprecedented reporting from The New York Times, which confirmed the existence of a hitherto unknown UFO research program inside the Pentagon. The news made global headlines. Two of the retired pilot eyewitnesses opened up to the press. One of The Times reporters was blown away by the online traffic. This story had legs.

And then … nothing. Skeptics caught their breath, focused on the videos and began positing alternative explanations, some of which could fit only by ignoring pilot testimony. But the story was incomplete. Where was the pedigree, the paperwork that could establish the provenance of the videos? Why, if the release of what for all intents and purposes is a striking challenge to America’s air superiority, did the Pentagon decline to man up and own it? The brass isn’t interested in windfall funding to play catchup? Really? And where was The Times’ followup reporting, anticipated by critics and proponents alike?

So TTSA squandered its momentum. The dust settled, the media wandered off. Stormy Daniels and Parkland. Then, suddenly, 3/9/18, from out of the blue, boom, here comes Mellon, touting a third video. He rightfully castigates the intelligence bureaucracies for a lack of curiosity over “mysterious aircraft (that) easily sped away from and outmaneuvered America’s front-line fighters without a discernible means of propulsion.” He contrasts official indifference to the rigor with which the U.S. responded to the Sputnik challenge 60 years ago, when four successive presidents refused to cede the high ground to anybody, and wound up putting American boots on the moon.

But in publicizing a video of what he describes as “a previously undisclosed Navy encounter that occurred off the East Coast in 2015,” Mellon fails to provide chain-of-custody documentation. The TTSA website suggests its readers — including the nearly 3,000 investors who’ve ponied up $200 to join the crowd-funder — can get additional info by filing FOIA requests with the DoD. If I’m an investor, this tells me the TTSA doesn’t have its spit together. But hey, no worries — tireless veteran FOIA sleuths like John Greenewald and Paul Dean are already on it, doing the TTSA’s work for it.

Does TTSA know what it’s doing? Unlike the December video revelations, Mellon’s release of the third F-18 UFO footage wasn’t packaged with additional third-party reporting. It merely bolstered his op-ed plea for action by Washington. Why couldn’t that sequence have been released back in December? Or, thinking more strategically, why couldn’t those two videos have had a staggered release, like maybe a month apart? Triple the publicity?

Depending on what else they’re sitting on, TTSA can still pull this $50M thing off. But at this point, the debate is spinning its wheels over the videos, which should’ve been a moot point by now. Whoever’s calling the shots here needs to come up with a better blueprint.
