John Alexander: Realities and Myths by Richard Dolan

Richard Dolan author of After DisclosureAn article by Richard Dolan:

I first met John Alexander in 2003. Of all the people associated with the topic of UFOs, he is undoubtedly among the most interesting. Indeed, he has become something of the official ufological boogyman. Go to any UFO conference, and if John Alexander is there, he will inevitably be the subject of much private conversation and speculation.

The reasons are self-evident, once you learn a little bit about the man. Alexander spent a long and distinctive career within the U.S. Army. While rising to the rank of colonel, he distinguished himself as a maverick. Consider that in an organization as rigid and bureaucratic as the U.S. Army, he championed such areas of research as psi phenomena, remote viewing, and non-lethal weapons technology. None of this was easy, and yet Alexander was quite successful in the course of his career. He is clearly a formidable individual.

BBC News: UFO files reveal 'Rendlesham incident' papers missing

Intelligence papers on a reported UFO sighting known as the "Rendlesham incident" have gone missing, files from the National Archives reveal.

The missing files relate to a report of mysterious lights from US servicemen at RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk in 1980.

The disappearance came to light with the release of 8,000 previously classified documents on UFOs.

Officials found a "huge" gap where defence intelligence files relating to the case should be, the papers show.

BBC Covering the National Archives UFO files release 03 March 2011

But the record of how the British authorities responded to the public over the "flying saucer" issue is fascinating in itself.

For decades officials have been caught in a paradox which plays itself out as the reader browses the documents, free for the next month from the National Archives website.

Ministry of Defense UFO files release - 03 March 2011

The unexplained brings incredible fascination to us all. What are those things that go bump in the night? And is that bright light in the sky really a passing jet plane?

UFO files released tomorrow (Thursday) by The National Archives reveal how the UFO phenomenon was discussed at the highest level of government and Security Services worldwide including at the United Nations, the US Central Intelligence Agency and was even the subject of a debate in the House of Lords.

The Sun: ‘I came from a govt experiment. My mom was drugged and impregnated with alien DNA means that I’m only 34% human’

Commentary: The Sun is still experiencing 'journalistic schizophrenia' when it comes to the UFO issue. It;s articles frantically swinging from belief and possibility one minute and the next resorting to cowardess and ridicule. Yet reading the article carefully reveals a certain level of truth. For instance, just how can journalist David Lowe find aspects of certain cases 'intriguing' if he truly considers the subject to be complete hokum?

AN EXPECTANT hush descends over the audience in the darkened room as the woman up front begins to twitch.

As she curls her toes inside her worn grey socks, Cathy Star Eagle's head falls forward and she talks in a low, monotone voice: "Greetings to all who have gathered seeking knowledge and universal truth."

We're clearly not at a conference for insurance salesmen.

The bizarre event is an extraterrestrial channelling session at the world's largest UFO conference, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

He is on an advisory body to the Queen, works as an environmental campaigner and is credited with integrating Canada's armed forces.

But aside from all this, the ex-Canadian defence minister says UFOs are real, aliens have visited Earth and the U.S. government is covering up information about them.

Paul Hellyer: The ex-Canadian Minister of National Defense says he is convinced that UFOs are real and alleges the U.S. has covered up information on themPaul Hellyer says he would probably get fired for his views if he was still Canada's Minister of National Defense today, but is adamant he has seen UFOs himself.

The 87-year-old, who is the longest-serving member of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, said he never discussed his views with top officials when he was in office.

‘This is the kind of thing that sometimes they don't tell politicians about,’ he said.
