While still on active duty in the U.S. Army during the 1980s, Col. John B. Alexander created an interagency group to explore the subject of UFOs. He joined George Knapp for the full 4-hour program on Sunday to discuss what he’s uncovered about the existence of these mysterious flying machines, and the lore that surrounds them. “UFOs are real…there are hard physical objects that transit the universe from time to time– every sensor we have picks them up,” yet the extraterrestrial hypothesis seems like too simple of an explanation, he said. A single answer may not apply to UFOs that can vary wildly in size from tiny balls of light to huge craft, he added.
Among the experts Alexander conferred with on the UFO question were Ben Rich, head of Lockheed’s Skunk Works, aerospace engineer Burt Rutan, and the late Edward Teller, the ‘father of the hydrogen bomb.’ All thought it was an interesting topic but said they didn’t have any answers or direct knowledge. Alexander said there are a number of solid UFO cases such as Bentwaters, the Phoenix Lights, and the Cash-Landrum incident, yet he’s concluded there’s no formal govt. policy trying to cover-up UFO sightings. While the UFO community has been clamoring for disclosure, what they really want is confirmation of their preconceived ideas, he opined.
There’s an awful lot of false information out there, Alexander declared, such as the MJ-12 documents (which he said are faked), and the idea that UFOs have successfully been reversed engineered. He offered a proposal that a high level government official such as Robert Gates say publicly that “anyone who has information about UFOs, and has been told they can’t talk about it, are now free to talk.” Dr. Alexander will be giving a presentation this Wednesday at the UFO Congress in Arizona.
On Saturday’s show, Iranian novelist and women’s rights advocate S. Mostofi joined Ian Punnett for a discussion about what life is like under Iranian law as well as what she thinks really happened during a failed US rescue attempt of 52 American hostages in Iran in 1980. “In Iran, nothing is bizarre anymore,” Mostofi declared, “people have seen it all, at this point, and they’re really sick of it.” She was hopeful that the current regime in Iran would fall by the end of the year, but expressed concern because the Iranian government is “extremely violent.” Mostofi noted that, unlike the Egyptian leadership, the leaders of Iran “would not be welcomed into the international community” should they be deposed and, thus, must tenaciously hold on to their power… cont.
Today in Strangeness:
This is the time of Roman Feralia where spirits of the dead are said to hover over their graves. Donald Davis ran one mile backwards in six minutes and 7 seconds (1983) and the man said to be the world’s oldest, Shigechiyo Izumi, died at 120 (1986).
Tonight’s Show, Monday, February 21st:
Researcher of ancient mysteries and how they relate to geological and astronomical cycles, LUCUS, will discuss how the Yellowstone Super Caldera is increasing in activity and seismic data is being deleted, how the San Bruno gas fire was sparked by an asteroid strike, and the Doomsday seed vault is evidence that the elite know a brown dwarf star is on its way to decimate Earth.
