UFO Disclosure in Limbo

Posted Monday, February 21, 2011, at 4:48 PM

Stephen Bassett is the founder of the Paradigm Research Group and executive director of the Extraterrestrial Political Action Committee, also called X-PPAC. He is the only registered lobbyist in the USA representing UFO and Extraterrestrial researchers and activists.

On February 18, 2011, Bassett sent an open letter to one of the new freshman U.S. Senators in Washington. The following is a partial transcript of that letter.

Senator Xxxxx, there is something quite important you need to know. Beginning in the summer of 1947, and more formally in early 1953, the United States government instituted a policy of embargo on the formal acknowledgement of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.

This policy was initiated for national security reasons and pursued with great vigor and considerable resources. This truth embargo, while it has weakened considerably during the past ten years, remains in place to this day.

History will argue at length whether this embargo was good policy and lasted too long. Whatever that verdict may be, history will show that information was withheld, disinformation was introduced into the public domain, researchers were intimidated and perhaps murdered, research organizations were infiltrated and dismantled, and witnesses to events and evidence were threatened.

It is the matter of witness intimidation that is most germane to this letter. You see, Senator, as reported to researchers, it was not uncommon for representatives of the U.S. military and intelligence agencies to tell witnesses they would be killed if they spoke about their UFO/ET experiences. They were also told that even if they did speak out, no one would believe them.

Senator, the Cold War has been over for twenty years. We are well into the 21st Century.

Does it concern you the United States Congress has done nothing to resolve this matter and has next to no oversight of the secret structures that manage the extraterrestrial issue?

Does it concern you that American presidents are not fully briefed on this matter or the depth of their briefing is often based upon their political affiliation?

Respectfully,

Stephen Bassett

Executive Director

== A Kudos for Bassett's Commitment ==

Steve Bassett's tenacity in exposing the U. S. government's deepest secret (that some of the reported UFOs represent hardware from elsewhere) has served, for about 10 years now, as a model for civic activism.

Lest he be tempted to scale back his efforts at advancing the cause of official UFO-E.T. disclosure, I publicly salute them here -- and I hope that many other UFOlogically aware citizens will do the same.

Our stakeholdership in knowing (and countering) the deceptive practices perpetrated by certain federal agencies for perpetuating the secrecy policy cannot be overstated.
