UFO BOMBSHELL: US Pentagon ran a UFO program – Declassified AATIP document reveals all | Weird | News

Military intelligence documents describing the US Government’s alleged attempts to identify and extraterrestrial threats have been revealed to the public. The UFO revelation comes with the release of a Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) letter to the US Congress, dated January 9, 2018. The letter, shared with Express.co.uk by former MoD UFO investigator Nick Pope, sheds light onto the US’ involvement with UFO research operations. Mr Pope’s investigation into the matter supports claims the US investigated extraterrestrial reports under the cover of aerospace defence pretences.

According to Mr Pope the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which ran from 2002 to 2012 and was first made public in 2017, acted as this cover.

In his estimate, the DIA document, which he obtained through a Freedom of Information (FoI) act, proves this.

The UFO expert told Express.co.uk: “Ever since the existence of AATIP was first revealed in December 2017, there’s been controversy about its true nature – was it a UFO program, as claimed by some of those involved, or simply a program aimed at assessing far-term aerospace threats, as some sceptics have suggested?

“Answering that question is difficult because we still have very few official documents about AATIP, but the Defense Intelligence Agency letter to Congress that I recently obtained from the DIA’s Office of Corporate Communications gives us some clear pointers.

“In the letter, the DIA describe AATIP’s purpose as being ‘to investigate foreign advanced aerospace weapon threats from the present out to the next 40 years’.

“But there’s a total disconnect between that statement and the list of ‘products produced under the AATIP contract’ listed in the letter’s attachment. This list sounds like Harry Potter meets Star Trek, with papers on anti-gravity, invisibility cloaking, stargates, warp drive and wormholes.

“The clincher is a paper on the Drake Equation, which was drawn up in 1961 by the radio astronomer Frank Drake.”

Drake’s Equation is a theoretical approximation on the number of intelligent and technologically advanced species throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.

There’s no doubt in my mind that AATIP was researching and investigating UFOs

But its presence in unclassified military documents seems ill-placed, Mr Pope argued, and suggests AATIP was indeed involved in researching extraterrestrial threats.

Mr Pope said: “If AATIP was about aerospace threats and not UFOs, where are the papers about Russian and Chinese aircraft, missiles and drones? There aren’t any.

“Taken collectively, the papers look as if they were drawn up to answer a question along the lines of ‘if we’re being visited by extraterrestrials, what technologies might they be using, and can we figure out these technologies ourselves?'”

The DIA letter, addressed to former Senator John McCain and Senator Jack Reed, outlines the AATIP’s research tasks, goals and technologies.

Among the more bizarre items listed in the letter, are reports of invisibility cloaking research, “Antigravity for Aerospace Applications”, “Warp Drive, Dark Energy and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions” and aforementioned Drake’s Equation.

Mr Pope said: “The US Government seems to have been looking at all this in terms of assessing threats and opportunities, which is exactly what I would expect in an intelligence program of this nature.

“It’s broadly similar to the way we looked at the issue in the Ministry of Defence. Whatever the true nature of the UFO phenomenon, the question is whether or not anything useful can be derived from a better understanding of what we’re dealing with.

READ MORE:

“Technology acquisition – including weaponisation – is at the heart of this.

“Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who was the key figure in getting AATIP set up and funded, spoke to this point in a 2009 letter to the Deputy Secretary of Defense William Lynn III.

“He wrote that the ‘technological insight and capability gained will provide the US with a distinct advantage over any foreign threats and allow the US to maintain its preeminence as a world leader’ while warning that the technologies ‘have the potential to be used with catastrophic effects by adversaries’.”

But the one missing piece of the puzzle is the complete lack of the term UFO through both letters – a practice, which is not at all uncommon across government departments investigating such issues.

The MoD for instance, Mr Pope said, would refer to Unidentified Flying Objects as UPSs – Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.

Doing this would “reframe the debate” from associations with science-fiction associations surrounding the concept of UFOs.

Mr Pope said the pop-cultural baggage surrounding the term UFO is too counterproductive to entertain in a scientific and research environment.

He said: “While there’s no doubt in my mind that AATIP was researching and investigating UFOs, describing the program in aerospace terms makes sense.

“Part of that may have been an attempt to hide the program, keeping it off the radar with Pentagon financiers looking for cuts, and making it more difficult for journalists and the public to find it using the Freedom of Information Act.

“That said, there are potential aerospace spin-offs too. As an example, if we can render an aircraft not just stealthy, but literally invisible, there are obvious military benefits.

“There are potential military applications with a lot of the other things AATIP was looking at too.

“Nowhere is this more true than in space, which along with cyberspace is probably going to be the key battlespace in any future war.”

The ATTIP was born in 2007 under the direction of Nevada Senator Harry Reid, under the guise of exploring unexplained aerospace threats.

Between 2002 and 2012, the program received a research budget of £17million ($22million).

The US public was made aware of the program in 2017 when a number of high profile media outlets, including Politico and The New York Times, reported on it.

The ATTIP’s 38 research initiatives were then revealed to the public on January 16, 2019, following a Freedom of Information request (FoI).

Ottawa announces new funding to combat online child abuse

Ottawa has announced $22 million in funding to fight online child abuse.

Noting that police-reported incidents of child pornography in Canada increased by 288 per cent between 2010 and 2017, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale made the announcement Tuesday.

It follows a London meeting last week that focused on the exploitation of children between Goodale and his counterparts from the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand, collectively known as the Five Eyes intelligence group.

Major internet companies, including Facebook, Google and Microsoft, were also at the meeting and agreed to a set of rules the members of the group proposed to remove child pornography from the internet quicker.

On Tuesday, Goodale warned internet companies they had to be better, faster and more open when in comes to fighting child abuse on line.

“If human harm is done, if a child is terrorized for the rest of their life because of what happened to them on the internet, if there are other damages and costs, then maybe the platform that made that possible should bear the financial consequences,” Goodale said.

The government plan includes $2.1 million to intensify engagement with digital industry to develop new tools online and support effective operating principles, $4.9 million for research, public engagement, awareness and collaboration with non-governmental organizations and $15.25 million to internet child exploitation units in provincial and municipal police forces across the country.

Goodale said the strategy recognizes that technology is “increasingly facilitating the easy borderless access to vast volumes of abhorrent images.”

That, he said, makes investigations increasingly complex,

“This is a race where the course is always getting longer and more complicated and advancing into brand new areas that hadn’t been anticipated five years ago or a year ago or even a week ago,” Goodale said.

If you can wait an extra day to fill up the gas tank, your bank account might thank you.

Roger McKnight of Enpro is predicting a five cent dip in gas prices Wednesday night at midnight.

This comes after a four cent drop this past Friday, just ahead of the August long weekend.

McKnight said the reason for the drop, both last week and this week, is due to comments made by US President Donald Trump. 

He says after the drop, the price will be, on average, 118.9 cents/litre in the Ottawa region.

Oka asks Ottawa to freeze Mohawk land deal, send RCMP to Kanesatake

The town of Oka is asking the federal and provincial governments to slap a moratorium on a proposed land grant to the local Mohawk community in Kanesatake and to establish an RCMP detachment on the First Nations territory to deal with illegal cannabis sales outlets.

The requests were contained in two resolutions adopted Tuesday night by the Oka town council.

The administration of Oka Mayor Pascal Quevillon held its first public meeting since the start of the controversy that pitted the town council against the Kanesatake band council over a decision by a local promoter to give local lands to the Mohawk community.

The three resolutions are addressed to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government, Quebec Premier François Legault’s government and the Kanesatake band council led by Grand Chief Serge Otsi Simon.

As each resolution was read into the record, Quevillon stressed that the town of Oka was only looking to live in peaceful cohabitation with the Mohawk community.

The town also called upon Ottawa to establish a consultation process that would take into account the concerns of residents in Oka and  Kanesatake.

Quevillon’s administration also wants access to the plans detailing what lands are at the centre of negotiations between the federal government and the Mohawk community for purchase, suggesting the talks are simply a disguised form of expropriation.

“They’re giving money to (the Mohawks) to buy our land and annex it to their territory,” Quevillon said.

Despite its demands, the Oka council adopted an official statement addressed to the Kanesatake band council saying the town’s population wanted dialogue and peaceful cohabitation, with Quevillon citing the 300 years of close links between the two communities.

During the council meeting’s question period, some residents suggested that the council deal with other groups that say they are speaking for Kanesatake, including Mohawk traditionalists. Mayor Quevillon replied that the town would only deal with the band council and did so out of respect for Grand Chief Simon.

The mayor also argued that the RCMP, a federal police force, was best suited to be deployed in Kanesatake, where it would ensure the law would be respected, particularly on the issue of illegal cannabis shops.

Quevillon contended such a deployment was the only way for both communities to work together toward their mutual economic development.

Meanwhile, the apology Grand Chief Simon has said he is expecting from Quevillon for remarks he made earlier this summer about the Mohawk community in Kanesatake does not appear to be coming any time soon.

Asked by a resident if he would apologize, Quevillon left the answer to those citizens who attended the meeting, the vast majority of whom replied, “no.”
