Rumors have been circulating for several weeks that a trove of top-secret UFO files may be about to surface. This week we find that an anonymous witness claims to have seen thousands of UFO-related documents while working at the Naval Telecommunications Center at NAS Moffett Airfield near Mountain View, California. The man, who says he saw the files in the late 1980s, is coming forward because his secrecy agreement with the U.S. military has expired and he believes the world has the right to know.
A UFOlogists and former Ministry of Defence (MoD) employee, Nick Pope, has spoken to the man and says he “has no doubts about his background”.
“To clarify my position and involvement, I’ve been in direct contact with the individual concerned for some time now. I’m working with him and with the newspapers to try to find a way forward that will involve verifying the person’s identity and verifying the information. That said, I have never endorsed the unauthorized release of classified information, and a key priority will be to seek assurances that any release is both lawful and proper.”
Daily Express also spoke with the man and claim another concern the witness has is for the families of those who have lost their lives in connection to UFOs, including some who the witness believes may have lost their lives in an attempt to share information that the government did not want to reveal to the public.
The man claims that he did not keep any copies of the documents he witnessed. He explained,
“Legally, you are not authorized to walk off with classified information. That is treason and treason is a felony. I do not possess anything other than my testimony and documents that authorize that I legitimately had the individual top-secret security clearances.”
The often tight-lipped UFO research organization, MUFON, is investigating the man’s report and hopefully, will be releasing details to the public soon.
Below is the man’s report as submitted to MUFON on February 13, 2016. Note that much of the terminology used in the report is indeed accurate: for instance, TS is often used in military documents to abbreviate “Top Secret”. Other security-related acronyms used in the report include (see complete list of security designations here):
ESI – Exceptionally Sensitive Information
SIOP – Single Integrated Operation Plan
SBI – Special Background Investigation
“I was a Radioman 3rd class petty officer at Naval Telecommunications Center within NAS Moffett Field from Feb 86′ to Oct 89′ having maintained a TS SBI/ESI NATO/SIOP Compartmental Security Clearance. I was required to deliver TS Code word designation COSMIC to SRI, ESL/SYLVANIA, LOCKHEED SKUNKWORKS, TRW, RATHEON, BERKELEY LABS, LAWRENCE LIVERMORE LABS, and other think tanks throughout Silicon Valley. In addition, we had a GS11 employee who was transferred from a Joint U.S. U.K. Communication station north of London after working at that site for a dozen years. He said it was an NSA/UK facility tasked with tracking UFOs including Rendalsham Forest Incident. He said that UFO/ET were real and that hopefully disclosure would happen in my lifetime since he was in his early 60s at the time. I’m not reporting a UFO sighting rather a UFO related experience. I have copies of my security clearances.
I personally handled, viewed and delivered thousands of documents involving UFO/ET Projects. My secrecy agreement with the U.S. Government expired in Oct 2014. At this point in my life I would like to share my knowledge in hopes that someone will be able to use it effectively towards disclosure.”
