As we mentioned in our earlier piece, there is a fascinating documentary called “Mirage Men” chronicling the US Government’s strategic use of UFO stories in order to distract the public from focusing on things that are deemed to threaten national security.
>A particularly intriguing documentary film called “Mirage Men” detailed a disinformation program involving Air Force intelligence and other military and intelligence officials, whereby government officials would feed false information concerning UFOs to detract attention from and obscure the nature of Top Secret US aviation programs. The documentary is fascinating enough to justify its own article, but one anecdote is particularly worthy of mention, in which the NSA beamed signals into a UFO researchers devices and sent him messages pretending to be aliens. This individual was eventually driven to insanity and, eventually, suicide.
Former State Department official Mike Benz has since posted extensive clips of the documentary, along with insightful and provocative commentary reinforcing the notion that currently and historically UFO stories are the product of a sanctioned counter intelligence strategy on the part of the government.
A fascinating story indeed. Of course, this doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to any of the UFO stories reported over the years. It does mean that we should meet such extraordinary claims with commensurate demands for extraordinary evidence, and we should be particularly wary when a sociopathic, censorious regime hell-bent on punishing so-called “conspiracy theories,” has found a seemingly safe “conspiracy theory” regarding UFOs that it is desperate to shove in our faces.
