the end of WW II with Germany vanquished and Japan reeling from her
nuclear devastation, Britain exhausted by two consecutive global
conflagrations, America stood astride the world un-challengeable and
supremely confident, as the most powerful nation on earth. The former
rebellious English colony now enjoyed unparalleled global supremacy in her
own right and with unprecedented military, technological and economic
power she could mould the world in her image, or so it
Then, in 1947, the mystique and confidence of the world
dominion enunciated by the Pax Americana, was shaken to its very
core and swept away by an event in the desert outside the small
insignificant town of Roswell, New Mexico.
discovery and analysis of the flying discs which crashed at Roswell,
eventually to be immortalized as the “Roswell incident”, suggested that
alien beings from outer space did actually exist, were not only vastly
more technologically advanced than the most advanced nation on earth, but
that they were taking a keen interest in that nuclear nation, its people
and the broader aspects of the planet in general. It also suggested, very
disturbingly, that there was more than one form of ET life form lurking in
the great dark void beyond our atmosphere, that some of them had been here
for far longer than we had been here, and that not all of them were
amicably disposed towards us, nor our supposed scientific advancement in
This was not welcome news. A plethora of sightings in the USA and
elsewhere confirmed the fact. The leadership in Washington faced a crisis
of epic proportions.
Going public would rock the world to its very
foundations, a world still largely recovering from the horrors and
aftermath of WW II. A world coming to terms with its new atomic power
broker and leader – the USA. It would conclusively prove that America and
her closest allies did not constitute the epitome of political, social,
economic and scientific advancement.
would demonstrate that we humans were incredibly backward on so very many
levels including the spiritual, scientific, political, technological,
ecological and religious terrains. It would prove that we were not only
not alone in the universe, but that we occupied a distant backwater off a
fairly remote galactic highway, much like the unassuming town of
Roswell itself. By nuking each other at the end of the second great global
conflagration of the 20th century, we had caused reverberations throughout
the galaxy with far reaching ramifications, the magnitude of which were
largely beyond our crude understanding.
What were the men in Washington to do?
circumstances going public was out of the question. No nation on earth had
ever in modern times contemplated a problem of these dimensions before.
There were no precedents, no parallels, no antecedents and the rule book
of standard operational procedures (SOP) could almost be
thrown out the window, well, almost……..but not quite.
SOP for anything untoward in the security realm, and this was nothing if
not overwhelmingly in the security field, was to classify it, preferably
at the highest level with the minimum involvement except of only the most
reliable, trustworthy and resolutely committed personnel so as to study it
with the best minds and optimal talents on the planet from which a
policy/strategy for the way forward could be engineered from
And so the decision was taken to sweep the “Roswell
incident” out of sight as though it had never existed, as thoroughly as
the desert adjacent to the town was swept clean, as ruthlessly as the
civilian and military personnel involved were
briefed/warned/intimidated/ridiculed to swear by the old Mafia oath of
Omerta/silence on pain of death.
on pain of death it most assuredly was, whether by reputation or outright
murder for this was one secret which could not be revealed without the
very real possibility of the entire international edifice of society,
government, politics, science, culture and religion collapsing in an
undignified squalid heap.
leadership who took this decisive action must have suspected that the
longer term consequences of this decision were to prove more sordid than
all the bizarre machinations of history hitherto combined, but the
staggering shock of the discovery coupled with the immediate desperate
exigencies of the situation probably overrode any private misgivings. . .
Eisenhower Briefing Document of 18 November 1952 is read at face value it would
appear as though the decision to keep the inter-planetary nature of UFOs
clandestine was given actual concrete expression in that year by President
Truman with the establishment of the super secret MJ-12 group (later more
obscurely identified as PI 40) comprising officials from the
CIA, the Department of Defense, the White House and
related relevant bodies. As was to be expected the validity of the
documents has been regularly challenged and never officially acknowledged.
When Timothy Good published his definitive UFO analysis “Above Top Secret” in 1987 he
expressed the hope that by the time his book hit the streets his labors
would be vindicated to the extent that the documents would not only be
confirmed but that further information might be released to the public
including actual physical artifacts from the Roswell incident.
This did not happen, or at least not quite in the way he might have
been anticipating. 
However, before exploring that avenue any further, it
would seem that Roswell may well not have constituted the first recorded
recovery of a UFO in the US. The MJ-12 documents made available for public
record on the internet and described in Ryan S. Wood’s book “MAJIC – Eyes Only” contain
intriguing details of two earlier crashes in 1942, which may have resulted
from the so called “Los Angeles Air Raid” of
February 25th 1942. 
General George Marshall’s Top Secret Memorandum of 5th
March 1942, worth quoting at length and written to President Roosevelt
“As indicated in my February 26th memorandum to you regarding
the air raid over Los Angeles, it has been learned by Army G-2 that
Rear Admiral Anderson, Director of Naval Intelligence, has informed
the War Department of a naval salvage of one unidentified airplane
off the coast of California [that], unlike the raid, has no bearing
on conventional explanation.
Further investigation has revealed that the Army Air Corps
also recovered a similar object in the San Bernardino Mountain, east
of Los Angeles, which cannot be identified as conventional aircraft.
This Headquarters has come to a determination that the mystery
airplanes are in fact not earthly and according to secret
intelligence sources they are in all probability of interplanetary
As a consequence, I have issued orders to Army G2 that a
special intelligence unit be created to further investigate the
phenomenon and report any significant connection between recent
incidents and those collected by the Director of the Office of
Co-ordination of Information.”
even these events could well have been predated by the apparent salvaging
of a UFO off Cape Girardeau in the spring of 1941 and the even earlier
Aurora incident in Texas (click below image) during
April of 1897. 
Evidence of the 1941 incident comes from the testimony of the
daughter of the priest summoned to deliver the last rites to the alien
crash victims and may be reflected in documentary form in the February
27th 1942 letter from Franklin Delano Roosevelt to General
George C. Marshall stating:
“I have considered the disposition of the material in possession
of the Army that may be of great significance in the development of a
super weapon of War….. Consultation with Dr Bush and other scientists on
the issue of finding practical uses for the atomic secrets learned from
the study of celestial devices…”. 
the few days available between the 1942 crash recoveries and the
compilation of this letter by the President of the United States to his
top military representative it would have been impossible for Roosevelt at
his level of government to have fully realized and appreciated the extent
of the implications arising from the crashes unless previous recoveries
had taken place and been reported to him.
It is also evident from
this memorandum that secrecy would have been paramount for a variety of
the most excellent reasons. British intelligence would have briefed
Roosevelt on the fact that Germany was already engaged in building the
atomic bomb and urgent preparations were underway in Norway, amongst other
venues, to manufacture enough heavy water for the project.
William Stephenson, the Canadian multi millionaire scientist and
businessman who served as Churchill’s personal intelligence representative
to the United States during WWII, made it his business to develop an
intimate relationship with the American leader and emphasized that the
British, with the covert help of the United States were in a crucial race
to develop the atomic bomb before the Germans. 
timing of this was vital to the outcome of the war as the British had
warned Roosevelt that Hitler was planning a longer range jet
powered rocket version of the V2 (itself an extension of the V1 Doodlebug
ramjet) which would soon be raining down on London, a future super secret
V weapon designed to carry an atomic warhead and
with a range calculated to hit the continental United States!
the stops were pulled out on developing and implementing plans for
destroying the heavy water plant in Telemark (immortalized in the slightly
inaccurate film titled The Heroes of Telemark) after a disastrous
desperate raid by British commandos came to nothing and the Norwegian
underground had to step in, eventually sinking a substantial amount of the
finished product on its way to Germany. 
Wherever in Europe British intelligence revealed the possibility of
German heavy water being manufactured, it was tracked, hunted and
destroyed. From a disastrous start in Holland, the British perfected a
refined information gathering service on all aspects of the German war
effort, the fullest extent of which is still, even now well into the next
century, highly classified. It is quite possible that British intelligence
knew more about exotic German research and development than has ever been
publicly revealed, including Hitler’s profound interest in channeled
information via the Vril and Thule organizations involving
possible UFO/ET involvement.
Consequently, Roosevelt had every
reason to shroud the UFO recovery program in the greatest secrecy to keep
the Germans from knowing the extent of UK-US collaboration on both
atomic bomb manufacture and new UFO technologies which it
may have been suspected the Germans were also working on.
This aura of black operations and secrecy set the standard for the
post war decision by Truman after Roswell to keep the project secret as
America contended with Russia for leadership of the world and realized
from her UFO reverse engineering as revealed by Colonel Philip Corso in 1997,
just how primitive US technology really was compared with the craft
obtained at Roswell and elsewhere. 
Frankly, given the conditions and circumstances
prevailing in the world at the time, any other decision would have been
foolhardy in the extreme. The USSR was in direct competition with the US
in recently liberated Europe and elsewhere, the UK was heavily infiltrated
with Soviet spies and struggling to come to terms with the imminent
implications of a post-Imperial world, and the ideological struggle for
China was taking a discouraging direction.
With the benefit of
hindsight, it could not have been predicted at the time that the decision
to clamp the UFO and ET investigation under a heavy cloak of clandestine
operations would also carry with it implications stretching into every
conceivable aspect of human existence, including social interaction,
religion, spiritual consciousness, political intrigue and ecology.
emphasis in those days was on technology and primarily weapons/propulsion
retrospect it was fortuitous that the USA developed the ability to
outsource the technical reverse engineering programs as outlined by Corso in his
book, for these “inventions” ranging from,
...all contributed to the maintenance of American global technical
superiority and that of her closest allies including the Echelon
electronic and satellite intelligence agreement nations, covering
naturally the US and the UK, but also including Canada, Australia, New
Zealand and until 1994, on certain issues, South Africa. 
The Echelon Agreement stemmed
from the UK/USA Signals Intelligence Exchange Agreement negotiated
between Churchill and Roosevelt during the war. It was redirected to the
USSR in March 1945 when the British and American forces near Augsburg
captured a German Abwehr Signals Intelligence unit in a nearby
schloss which worked purely on decoding Soviet signals traffic.
the time the British had finished interrogating them the schloss
had fallen into Soviet hands, but a joint US/UK special forces unit was
sent to unearth the German’s buried equipment under the noses of the
occupying Russians and GCCS then set about targeting all Soviet signals
traffic. Tons of German decoding equipment was secretly unearthed and
slipped out of the Soviet zone to the UK where it was successfully
reassembled by the waiting German technicians now willing to collaborate
with their new intelligence chiefs.
In addition to revealing
genuine Soviet post war intentions and exposing a number of Soviet agents
in the West, it would have become clear from this quantum leap in
electronic eavesdropping (which would normally have taken years to
develop), that the USSR was also exposed to intense post war UFO/ET
Such revelations could have been expected to seriously put the wind
up the western allies.
the USSR cracked the UFO hi tech systems before the Americans and the
British, the so called Cold War would have been over before it had even
started. This was yet another reason for the Truman administration to
ruthlessly preserve the secrecy of the Roswell finds and the mind boggling
ramifications it carried with it for American politics, defense strategy,
technical R & D, business and industry. 
Indeed, the maintenance and enhancement of America’s primacy in
world affairs within the diktat of global power politics and “realpolitik”
dictated that secrecy be ruthlessly maintained on all fronts including
within the Echelon nations.
As an aside it is worth noting that no
Western espionage breakthrough in the Cold War matched the dimensions of
this windfall until 1994 when a Russian archivist called Vasili
Mitrokhin, tried to approach the American Embassy in Moscow with a
full set of the KGB’s archives, to buy his way to the West. Astoundingly,
such was the paucity of trained intelligence personnel in the post Cold
War world pervading the American intelligence community, that a US Embassy
employee told Mitrokhin that he must simply go away.
perplexed by his rejection, but knowing that he had jurisdiction over
intelligence dynamite and undaunted in his resolute determination to get
out of Russia, he went, ostensibly on holiday, to the Black Sea resort of
Taking enormous risks, he approached a young 23 year old English
receptionist at the British Consulate there. A bright girl, with no
intelligence training whatsoever, she contacted the resident MI 6 officer
in the British Embassy back in Moscow, who immediately flew down and met
Mitrokhin. Vetting some samples, he instantly realized the thermonuclear
nature of the information on offer, and arranged for Mitrokhin, his family
and his complete set of KGB archives to be smuggled out to the UK.
After exhaustive debriefing and the apprehension of several Soviet
networks round the world, the British Government arranged for two
declassified volumes of Mitrokhin’s memoires to be published.
Although his books make no specific reference to the subject,
Mitrokhin informed his British and American interrogators that the KGB
took the UFO/ET challenge very seriously indeed. His archives
contained passing references to the phenomena but the matter was so
sensitive that the bulk of the intelligence on the UFO/ET subject seemed
to be cloistered elsewhere. 
Just as in the US and the UK, it appeared that a special section of
the KGB dealt with these highly sensitive issues. Indeed, he allegedly
threw some light on the famous comment at the Reykjavik US/USSR Summit
Meeting between Reagan and Gorbachev, where the two men had
got on so well, that Gorbachev disarmingly asked Reagan,
“Are these UFOs yours?”
“Hell no”, replied the President. “We thought they might be
Soviets evidently shared the same fear expressed by NATO and given
expression by whistle blower, Robert Dean, that a
mistaken UFO on Western radars identified as an incoming missile attack
could lead to the outbreak of atomic war.
All of which brings
us to the [Walter] Haut Affidavit and its relevance in the
contemporary context. It will be recalled that Tim Good had
expressed the hopes that confirmation of his Roswell reports would adopt a
more tangible shape and form. This did in fact happen, but not in quite
the way he had anticipated.
The first outstanding confirmation took
the form of the Phil Corso book published in the United States in the late
1990s. In a sense, the Corso book is the Holy Grail of UFO
researchers and like the Haut document came at the end of his life, in
a gesture to put the record straight with his family and the public.
Corso revealed that technology had been farmed out via super black
highly compartmentalized projects involving select administrative
personnel to leading R&D establishments in the US and elsewhere
involving some of America’s closest allies.
Under Department of
Defense supervision, Los Alamos worked with the Lawrence
Livermore Laboratories on nuclear weapons and nuclear propulsion. Los
Alamos also worked with the materials associated with the prototype
magnetic field disrupter and the downsized reactors. Livermore developed
the plasma containment and super conductors.
Rome Laboratories provided research on electromagnetics and
magnetic field generation technology, as well as directed energy weapons
and the phenomenal quasi-crystals. The Rome Laboratories at
Griffiss Air Force Base in New York conducted research on alien
communications and provided intelligence techniques for monitoring alien
NSA worked closely with these laboratories to provide guidance to
the National Reconnaissance Office for satellite surveillance and Space
Command for tracking UFO movements outside of the earth’s atmosphere.
Wright-Patterson worked on the airframe and materials reverse
engineering from artifacts recovered at various UFO/ET crash sites both
inside and outside the continental United States, coupled with the
development of avionics, flight dynamics and atmospheric propulsion
systems. Philips Laboratories at Kirtland Air Force Base provided research
on rocket propulsion, ramjet and scramjet technologies as well as the
advanced weapons systems.
Over and above these items, dozens of academic institutions and
private research institutes were covertly contracted to assist in the
R&D programs. Astonishing details of these black projects and secret
programs were confirmed by Edgar Rothschild Fouche and Brad
Steiger in the novel ‘Alien Rapture – The Chosen’,
a work of “faction” informed by a remarkably well connected whistle
blowing insider with the collaboration of a sterling writer, published in
1998 by Galde Press Inc of Minnesota.
confirmation, made for much the same reasons as Corso had made his
revelations, came in the form of the Haut Affidavit dated 26th December
2002 (below insert) which confirms the decision by Brigadier General
Roger Ramey of the US Army Air Force to order Colonel Blanchard to
cover up the truth by going public with the news of an aerial crash by
replacing the genuine wreckage with conventional weather balloon materiel.
Haut gives intimate details of the real wreckage which he
personally witnessed from a safe distance, the bodies that were found and
the morgue that was established to deal with them.

NOTARY: Beverlee Morgan
(1) My name is Walter G. Haut
(2) I was born on June
(3) My address is 1405 W. 7th Street, Roswell, NM
(4) I am retired.
(5) In July, 1947, I was
stationed at the Roswell Army Air Base in Roswell, New Mexico,
serving as the base Public Information Officer. I had spent the
4th of July weekend (Saturday, the 5th, and Sunday, the 6th) at my
private residence about 10 miles north of the base, which was
located south of town.
(6) I was aware that someone had
reported the remains of a downed vehicle by midmorning after my
return to duty at the base on Monday, July 7. I was aware that
Major Jesse A. Marcel, head of intelligence, was sent by the base
commander, Col. William Blanchard, to investigate.
late in the afternoon that same day, I would learn that additional
civilian reports came in regarding a second site just north of
Roswell. I would spend the better part of the day attending to my
regular duties hearing little if anything more.
Tuesday morning, July 8, I would attend the regularly scheduled
staff meeting at 7:30 a.m. Besides Blanchard, Marcel; CIC
[Counterintelligence Corp] Capt. Sheridan Cavitt; Col. James I.
Hopkins, the operations officer; Lt. Col. Ulysses S. Nero, the
supply officer; and from Carswell AAF in Fort Worth, Texas,
Blanchard's boss, Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey and his chief of staff,
Col. Thomas J. Dubose were also in attendance. The main topic of
discussion was reported by Marcel and Cavitt regarding an
extensive debris field in Lincoln County approx. 75 miles NW of
Roswell. A preliminary briefing was provided by Blanchard about
the second site approx. 40 miles north of town. Samples of
wreckage were passed around the table. It was unlike any material
I had or have ever seen in my life. Pieces which resembled metal
foil, paper thin yet extremely strong, and pieces with unusual
markings along their length were handled from man to man, each
voicing their opinion. No one was able to identify the crash
(9) One of the main concerns discussed at the
meeting was whether we should go public or not with the discovery.
Gen. Ramey proposed a plan, which I believe originated from his
bosses at the Pentagon. Attention needed to be diverted from the
more important site north of town by acknowledging the other
location. Too many civilians were already involved and the press
already was informed. I was not completely informed how this would

Blanchard phoned my office and dictated the press release of
having in our possession a flying disc, coming from a ranch
northwest of Roswell, and Marcel flying the material to higher
headquarters. I was to deliver the news release to radio stations
KGFL and KSWS, and newspapers the Daily Record and the Morning
(11) By the time the news release hit the wire
services, my office was inundated with phone calls from around the
world. Messages stacked up on my desk, and rather than deal with
the media concern, Col Blanchard suggested that I go home and
(12) Before leaving the base, Col. Blanchard
took me personally to Building 84 [AKA Hangar P-3], a B-29 hangar
located on the east side of the tarmac. Upon first approaching the
building, I observed that it was under heavy guard both outside
and inside. Once inside, I was permitted from a safe distance to
first observe the object just recovered north of town. It was
approx. 12 to 15 feet in length, not quite as wide, about 6 feet
high, and more of an egg shape. Lighting was poor, but its surface
did appear metallic. No windows, portholes, wings, tail section,
or landing gear were visible.
(13) Also from a distance, I
was able to see a couple of bodies under a canvas tarpaulin. Only
the heads extended beyond the covering, and I was not able to make
out any features. The heads did appear larger than normal and the
contour of the canvas suggested the size of a 10 year old child.
At a later date in Blanchard's office, he would extend his arm
about 4 feet above the floor to indicate the height.

not "hot" (radioactive).

Worth, Major Marcel described to me taking pieces of the wreckage
to Gen. Ramey's office and after returning from a map room,
finding the remains of a weather balloon and radar kite

over this situation. We would not discuss it again.

Haut Affidavit is sufficient unto itself to cause raised eyebrows,
but it is not by any criteria, a stand alone document. In his book Need to
Know – UFOs, the Military and Intelligence by Timothy Good, there appear
affidavits by Brigadier General Thomas du Bose confirming the fake
balloon story, by Laverne Maltais, a civil engineer serving in the
US Army, confirming his discussions with Grady Barnett who
witnessed a crashed flying disc at the site, and by mortician Glenn Dennis
who was on the site where the alien bodies were dealt with. 
short, the confirmatory evidence is almost overwhelming and would probably
withstand cross examination in the most rigorous court of law.
if to put the cherry on the cake, Good quotes the Clark C. McClelland interview with Dr Wernher von
Braun, the ex-German V1, V2 scientist and father of the
modern American space program, in which he confirmed the Roswell incident.
interview was only released after von Braun’s death, a condition of its
granting, and to his lasting credit McClelland honored this to the letter
and spirit of the undertaking. It is a fitting tribute to both men, and a
testimonial to the thoroughness of Tim Good, that this edited interview be
quoted in full.
Dr Von Braun explained how he and (certain of) his
associates had been taken to the crash site after most of the military
were pulled back. They did a quick analysis of what they found. He told me
the craft did not appear to be made of metal as we know metal on Earth.

The recovered bodies were temporarily being kept in a nearby
medical tent. They were small, very frail and had large heads. Their
eyes were large. Their skin was grayish and reptilian in texture. He
said it looked similar to the skin texture of rattlesnakes he’d seen
several times at White Sands. His inspection of the debris had even him
puzzled; very thin, aluminum covered, like silvery chewing gum wrappers.
Very light and extremely strong. The interior of the craft was nearly
bare of equipment, as if the creatures and craft were part of a single
the real challenge for ensuing administrations is how to declassify the
events of 50 years ago as the time approaches for the acknowledgment of
the UFO/ET realities.
From selective leaks down the years and the fact that unanimity is
not a human character strong point even under the most pressing
circumstances, it would seem that a section of the MJ-12/PI-40 group, most
probably involving the US Navy in particular, genuinely desire to see the
program gradually declassified. Revelatory works in both fictional and
factual forms by Dr Michael Wolf and Dan Burisch seem to confirm
this. In a sense the situation constitutes “work in progress”.
Corso, Haut and others have performed a sterling service by pulling
the official curtain back. They have been indirectly endorsed in recent
years by a host of whistle blowers and more esoteric sources including
spiritual elements, channeling and remote viewing.
aspect to all of this on a contemporary level, is that it is the
Echelon countries which have largely backed American operations in
Iraq, in the form of the UK and Australia with some tacit collaboration
from Canada and New Zealand. On the other hand, Germany, Russia and France
remained outside the net and were even regarded as potential competitors.
Notably, all three countries had collaborated with Saddam
Hussein in providing weapons, building bunkers and supplying nuclear
related know how and all three countries were owed vast sums of money by
the Iraqi regime for services rendered. This Echelon exclusivity
was not the case in the management of the NATO conducted joint military
operations in Afghanistan.
Conspicuously missing from the Echelon
group was South Africa.
Sadly, relations between the US and South Africa have reached an
all time low under President Thabo Mbeki, who refused along with
his Foreign Minister Dlamini Zuma (the ex-wife of the newly elected
President of the ANC and thus future successor of President Mbeki, Jacob
Zuma), to even see the new Bush appointed US Ambassador to the RSA until 6
months subsequent to his arrival when media pressure forced a meeting.
Despite contributing more to the fight against AIDS in the RSA than
any other nation or collective of contributors, the US Ambassador is still
waiting some 18 months after his arrival in the RSA to see the South
African Minister of Health! 
Why the difference in strategies between Iraq and Afghanistan?
Could it be that a type of portal or a form of ancient but
still operational star gate permitting interstellar and ET time travel
exists in Iraq dating from ancient Sumerian times?
Is it possible that this has already been identified by the US
The US/UK/Australian invasion of Iraq would ensure exclusive
access via such a portal to the US and America’s closest allies, while
no such exotic apertures are to be found in Afghanistan?

ended up running the entire German espionage apparatus in the UK towards
the end of the war. Thus the British intelligence community, coupled
with their embryonic electronic intelligence apparatus at Bletchley
Park’s Government Code and Cypher School (the precursor to GCHQ at
Cheltenham) reading the bulk of the German signals traffic (code named
Enigma by the British) and decoding it using the Colossus computing
machine, had an intimate insight into German research and development

the British were reading the German signals traffic is given in the

1979). Jones was Chief of British Scientific Intelligence during WWII
and later became close friends with Vice Admiral Sir Louis le Bailly,
Chief of British Military Intelligence in the 1970s. Le Bailly told me
that during the Doodlebug raids on London Jones worked out that the
Germans were planning to put an atomic warhead on their future beefed up
versions of their V2 rockets. He made three copies of his discovery and
posted them to various officials the same night from different post
boxes as the V1 rockets were raining down on London, in case his own
home was hit and he was killed. See also Thomas Gallagher, The Telemark
Raid – Sabotaging the Nazi Nuclear Bomb (Corgi, London, 1976). The
thorough though controversial British historian, David Irving, told me
that, in his opinion, if the Telemark interdiction had not taken place,
Britain as well as the US, and not Japan, would have been the first
victims of an atomic bomb delivered not by piloted aircraft, but by the
first modern inter continental ballistic missile. In fact, no one
entering the Imperial War Museum in London and spotting a real V2
rocket, the height of a three story building, preserved in the left hand
corner of the main hall, can fail to come away from the experience
without an awesome appreciation of how close the world must have come to
an ICBM nuclear tipped exchange in the last months of the war. See also
Nigel West, MI 6 – British Secret Intelligence Operations 1909 –45
(Weidenfield & Nicholson, London, 1983) which describes the
appallingly amateurish efforts by the SIS at the outbreak of the war to
recruit German intelligence officers in Holland via a disastrous
operation subsequently known as the Venlo incident. The amateurs
did not last long in the free market of international espionage and were
soon replaced by effective, if ruthless, professionals.

discussions with the US Ambassador to the Republic of South Africa at
the Cape Town Club following his off the record address there in early
2008. The audience appeared to be grossly shocked when the Ambassador
revealed that he had been deliberately snubbed and insulted by the South
African leadership. Such small minded, pedantic and disrespectful
conduct at the highest levels of the SA Government does not bode well
for the future of South Africa in a world still overwhelmingly
influenced by the United States of America. It is frankly profoundly
disappointing for those who have dedicated their lives and careers to
helping to build a better society, integrating SA with the world in a
positive and constructive way and striving towards a reasonable and
accountable community of nations for mutually beneficial materiel and

Infinity – Travels in Time (Neville Spearman Ltd, London, 1975). The
concept of genuine time travel, given
recent prominence by the unabridged original Wingmakers website amongst
others, is not as new nor as revolutionary as we might imagine. Van

people throughout history. Dr Michael Salla, “Political

a sound grasp of conventional international relations (and practical
hands on experience in east Timor by all accounts) with a healthily
skeptical and critical analysis of the sources and evidence available in
the UFO/ET field and is not afraid to draw devastatingly incisive
conclusions which contrast diametrically with the constraints of
conventional analysis limited to conventional sources. To do this
requires unusual guts, exceptional analytical and research capabilities
and supreme acumen. See also Navy Sonar Blamed for Death of Beaked
