- The army was getting involved about Unidentified Aerial Phenomena seen by its pilots, sailors, and so forth.
- They created the AATIP – the Superior Aerospace Menace Identification Program – to review UAPs. There was additionally a program referred to as AAWSAP – Superior Aerospace Weapon System Purposes Program – which was the identical factor, only a completely different title. Luis Elizondo headed up this system. A lot of what Elizondo is aware of is assessed and can’t be revealed.
- In 2017, Elizondo resigns his job on the Pentagon, and joins Tom DeLonge’s “To The Stars” group.
- Beginning in December, 2017, Leslie Kean, with co-authors Michael Blumenthal and Helene Cooper publish a sequence of articles within the New York Instances about “Glowing Auras and Black Cash”, telling the story of Elizondo and AATIP. This units off a long-lasting media frenzy, leading to numerous media interviews, and a profitable two-season sequence The Unidentified on the “Historical past” Channel, starring Elizondo, DeLonge, and the “To The Stars” crew.
That’s the Gospel of AATIP based on Elizondo (and lots of others). However as Lacatski, Kelleher, and Knapp present, virtually none of that’s true. And so they give specifics about conferences, individuals attending, communications, and so forth. supporting their account. The supposed historical past of AATIP we have now been given has at all times been reasonably woozy and missing particulars. On this e book, nevertheless, you’ll find loads of specifics. On this model, the historical past of the Pentagon UAP investigation goes one thing like this:
- Pentagon scientist James Lacatski reads the 2005 e book The Hunt for the Skinwalker by Kelleher and Knapp, which tells of quite a few supposedly paranormal occasions occurring at Robert Bigelow’s so-called “Skinwalker Ranch” in Utah. He’s very impressed.
- Lacatski suggests to Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), and to Bigelow, that the federal government would possibly fund an investigation into UAPs and allegedly paranormal phenomena “collocated” with UAPs, within the curiosity of nationwide safety.
- Reid makes use of his political connections to create the AAWSAP program, with a price range of $22 million. Bigelow creates a brand new division of his firm, BAASS (Bigelow Aerospace Superior House Research), which submits the one bid for the contract.
- AAWSAP investigates not solely claims of UAPs, however alleged paranormal phenomena “collocated” with them. Individuals declare to have ‘introduced residence’ poltergeist phenomena and such after visiting Skinwalker Ranch. Blue orbs are additionally mentioned to menace those that get near the phenomenon.
- AAWSAP is funded for 2 fiscal years, 2009 and 2010. Reid, Lacatski, and others attempt to get extra funding, however are unsuccessful.
|An illustration of AAWSAP investigations (from the podcast The Basement Workplace)|
This can be a very completely different image than we have now been proven earlier than! There have lengthy been hints of this facet of AAWSAP, however due to there being so many conflicting accounts of this system(s), many individuals (together with me) have been inclined to dismiss them. Method again in Could of 2018, KLAS in Las Vegas (the place George Knapp works) revealed an nameless “Assertion from a Senior Supervisor of BAASS” (who very doubtless is Kelleher):
The investigations by BAASS offered new strains of proof displaying that the UFO phenomenon was much more than nuts and bolts machines that interacted with army plane. The phenomenon additionally concerned a complete panoply of various exercise that included weird creatures, poltergeist exercise, invisible entities, orbs of sunshine, animal and human accidents and rather more. The unique give attention to nuts and bolts machines might be thought of myopic and unproductive in fixing the bigger thriller of UFOs.
As he loved his steak tartare, Elizondo regaled these round him with some battle tales, together with one hair-raising exploit about how his superior instinct and distant viewing [“psychic”] capabilities had saved his life and the lifetime of his males whereas on a covert fight mission in Afghanistan (p. 49).
the choice to analysis paranormal phenomena that co-locate with UAPs and to look at psychic results in UAP witnesses, along with scrutinizing the core UAP expertise itself, was not taken evenly due to the controversial nature of the UAP-paranormal debate….[witnesses] often reported poltergeist results, humanoid-shaped black shadows, loud footsteps, hauntings, discarnate voices, small flying orbs,or some mixture thereof, of their properties. These folks additionally repeatedly reported precognitive, clairvoyant, telepathic, or uncommon electromagnetic phenomena, in addition to occasional will increase in significant coincidences of their lives within the aftermath of a UAP encounter (p. 161).

Abruptly, Lacatski was transfixed by one thing behind the place Bigelow and the [caretaker] couple have been chatting: an unearthly technological machine had immediately and silently appeared out of nowhere within the adjoining kitchen. It a posh semi-opaque, yellowish, tubular construction. Lacatski mentioned nothing however stared on the object, which was hovering silently. He seemed away, seemed again, and there it nonetheless was. It remained seen to Lacatski for not more than 30 seconds earlier than vanishing on the spot (p. 39-40).
- “The freakish hybrid of small dinosaur and enormous beaver had silently and immediately appeared” (p. 56)
- “nightmarish ‘dogmen’ showing of their yard” (p. 81)
- “two wine bottles have been flung throughout the room, ceiling followers would activate,” and so forth. (p. 81).
- “a big wolf-like creature standing outdoors his bed room wanting in at him” (p. 84)
- “unusual blue lights flying round his yard” (p. 84).
Tied into the Skinwalker “thriller” considerably peripherally is “the Geller impact”, when in 1973 a number of scientists in California testing the Israeli spoonbender’s alleged magic powers have been supposedly plagued of their properties with UFOs, orbs, and “black shadowy types” (p. 88). The authors accurately word that physicist Dr. Hal Puthoff was a “central participant” each in these exams of Geller, and likewise “as an AAWSAP BAASS advisor and contractor, within the Axelrod and different submit Skinwalker Ranch incidents” (p. 89). Russell Targ and Hal Puthoff famously investigated Uri Geller again within the early Seventies, and have been very impressed by him. Geller’s supposed psychic powers have been proven by James Randi and different magicians to be bogus.
AAWSAP requested, however didn’t get, funding for a “distant viewing” program, however they carried out a “restricted feasibility take a look at.” They requested the famous distant viewer Joseph McMoneagle to view a goal allegedly unknown to him, which was truly Skinwalker Ranch. His descriptions of it “have been wonderful” (p. 121). The authors don’t point out that again in 1984, McMoneagle was working with the CIA, and tried a distant viewing of Mars within the 12 months 1 million B.C. He described a “pyramid” that was 20,000 meters tall, and constructions with massive rooms, constructed by “an historical folks attempting to outlive.”
We’re knowledgeable in Chapter 8 that “Blue Orbs Are usually not Benign” (p. 70), A number of accounts are given of people allegedly being injured or sickened by encounters with nasty Blue Orbs which are mentioned to fly about like indignant wasps. When three canines on the Skinwalker Ranch allegedly disappeared after being menaced by a blue orb, “The rancher” [Terry Sherman] stumbled on “three black greasy lumps,” and “presumed that his three canines had been incinerated” (p. 76).
Associated to the above is is that this very attention-grabbing Podcast by Steven Greenstreet of the New York Publish. I seldom watch or take heed to any podcasts, since I can learn an writer’s article in only a few minutes, whereas their podcast requires thirty minutes or extra. However this one is price watching. First he tells the AATIP story because it’s often informed (and I am pondering “that is not proper). Then he says that each one of that’s mistaken, and presents the precise historical past, as documented in Skinwalkers on the Pentagon. Strictly talking, the e book doesn’t talk about “werewolves,” however to use that time period to studies of a bipedal, wolf-like creature appears fairly acceptable. Likewise, the e book doesn’t talk about “ghosts,” however does talk about “discarnate voices.”

Greenstreet pays cautious consideration to inconsistencies and contradictions of the AATIP narrative, which few have famous. One crucial level made by Greenstreet is the place he quotes Leslie Kean, prime mover behind the extremely influential Pretend Information tales about AATIP within the New York Instances, explaining that she didn’t point out that ghosts, werewolves, and so forth. have been being studied as a result of “the angle I used to be taking in my reporting was to attempt to get credibility for the topic.” So she admits that she was writing not as a journalist, however as an advocate. The New York Instances has but to right or retract any of the articles she wrote, which intentionally misrepresent the Pentagon’s UFO investigation program.
