Thanks Kos seems like we can talk about all our interests now, and I’ve published a diary or 3 around here on the subject, but now…heck leave your skepticism at the door, or if you want to be a skeptic fine! Just be nice about it and if we are going to talk politics it will be exo-politics.
So when we last talked we had just found out about The FBI Vault Is Open! Which is a fantastic search tool recently brought online by our FBI that provides the files that the public requests most frequently in a really neat one stop shop. The Memo that Admits ET is Real and Roswll Happened was the document that was really fascinating to me. Although it had existed in the public record before this was it’s first airing among the wider internet public.
This week however we had a real disclosure so to speak from our CIA in the form of a previously secret memo that states John Fitzgerald Kennedy demanded information on UFO phenomenon just 10 days before his assassination.
An uncovered letter written by John F Kennedy to the head of the CIA shows that the president demanded to be shown highly confidential documents about UFOs 10 days before his assassination.
The secret memo is one of two letters written by JFK asking for information about the paranormal on November 12 1963, which have been released by the CIA for the first time.
Author William Lester said the CIA released the documents to him under the Freedom of Information Act after he made a request while researching his new book 'A Celebration of Freedom: JFK and the New Frontier.'
The article goes on to speculate that President Kennedy was concerned that the Soviet Union was also observing unidentified phenomenon and might be tempted to believe it was America behind it, and that Kennedy wanted the information in order to assure the Soviets that it wasn’t us. It also goes on to tie this memo to another that has not been vetted and is not public the “burned memo”.
The story behind that is that purportedly a CIA asset was assisting in the destruction of documents by burning them spotted the burned memo and pulled it out, later to sell it to a collector. In it a figure referred to as Lancer (President Kennedy’s Secret Service call sign) is said to be requesting information regarding extra terrestrial activity and that is something, the official ominously states cannot be allowed to happen.
The hottest compilation on Youtube in this past week is this one of media reports of what is being described as a mass wave sighting.
The people at worldstarhiphop posted this video and now all the kids are running around discussing UFO's. That's one way to get them into math and science.
This one was very interesting to me, I had always known the Minister Farrakahn was a believer in UFO phenomenon however last week he placed the Nation of Islam firmly behind the idea with this interview with Jamie Maussan.
