While the average American may spend very little time considering whether or not UFOs are real, others are pre-occupied with the matter and want the U.S. government to reveal proof that aircraft far more advanced than anything designed by humans has been a national security issue since the 1940s.
On July 22, 2019, Larry Klayman, a former federal prosecutor who founded the truth-seeking organizations Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, announced that Freedom Watch had filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia to force the Defense Department and the Defense Intelligence Agency to “compel compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).”
Klayman serves as the chairman and general counsel of Freedom Watch. He revealed that both defense intelligence agencies had “stonewalled for 8 years” before responding to the legal watchdog group’s FOIA request for documentation supporting the accusation that the federal government has known quite a bit about UFOs for a long time.
In December 2011, Freedom Watch requested agency records related to extraterrestrial visits, UFO encounters, the top-secret and heavily fortified Area 51 military base, the 1947 Roswell incident, and extraterrestrial life information involving the United Nations, Great Britain, and the United States.
Administrators at Freedom Watch said that when the defense agencies did respond to the FOIA request, they “failed to even give a timeline for producing all records.” The feds claimed the delay was due to the “thousands” of other information-seeking requests in the queue for processing before getting to that from Freedom Watch.
Finally, the public interest group received “3 inches worth” of documents – not many – and of these, 98 percent were written in Russian, prompting Freedom Watch to file a formal complaint with the Department of Defense which stated that, because “The great majority of the de minimus production of records was in Russian and was not responsive to the original request, filed about 8 years earlier,” the government’s action was meant to suppress information in violation of U.S. law:
“This is tantamount to a denial and complete bad faith obstruction of justice, as it is clear that Defendant DoD is suppressing and illegally withholding relevant records as part of a cover-up,” the complaint explains. “Defendant DoD dishonestly produced non-responsive documents conveniently and overwhelmingly in Russian…”
Finally, the complaint brought up the fact that several U.S. Senators were briefed in May 2019 about UFOs and are now calling for further investigations into the Big Lie since ” it is now widely accepted that the U.S. government possesses voluminous records and information about the existence of UFO’s and related matters as set forth in Plaintiff’s FOIA request.”
Klayman expressed his opinion of our government’s evasive tactics:
“It is an outrage that our so-called government would continue to deny vital information about what the world knows is true: the existence of UFOs on our planet.”
The head of Freedom Watch also pointed average citizens who want more truthful information about UFOs to check in with Dr. Stephen Greer who has been advocating full governmental UFO disclosure for decades. Greer’s new film, “Unacknowledged,” spills the beans for Truthers everywhere. Said Klayman:
“‘Unacknowledged’ can be found on Netflix and I urge all interested persons to watch it to see for themselves the government and other whistleblowers who have come forward to confirm the existence of UFOs — at great risk to themselves.”
According to ufologists, including this author, the issue is not whether or not the average citizen believes that UFOs exist but is, rather, the fact that the U.S. government knows they exist.
Trained military observers who reported UFOs were summarily silenced by their superiors who took their orders from defense intelligence agencies such as those named as defendants in the Freedom Watch lawsuit. Most had to sign oaths of secrecy or risk losing their pensions, their reputation, and possibly suffer bodily harm to themselves and their families.
As more and more Navy pilots are getting mainstream media coverage about their insider UFO reports, some analysts think that the public is being softened up for at least partial disclosure: the hardware is real but humans came up with anti-gravity and other critical design elements, not aliens.
A July 4, 2019 survey conducted by British international online market research and data analytics firm YouGov found that 28 percent of Americans “believe the government knows something about UFOs that is not being shared with the public.”
Klayman spoke for many of us who are tired of the Big Lie that “you must be crazy to believe that UFOs are real” when he said:
“It’s time that the government come clean about what it knows and is doing with regard to UFOs and aliens who are apparently peaceful and have visited and continue to visit our planet. Indeed, if the United States and other developed countries can send spacecraft to other planets, then so too can other civilizations. This is not farfetched, but reality and more dishonest ‘games’ by the government will not be tolerated!”
Public frustration over the U.S. government’s decades-long conspiratorial UFO coverup has mounted to the point where a joking suggestion to storm Area 51 has morphed into plans for a big party and rock concert being billed as “Alienstock” – in deference to the 1960s Woodstock outdoor extravaganza.
