Overview


Secrets and Suppressed Evidence. Coincidences or Lies?

Sifting through hundreds of historical and government documents, interviewing multitudes of participants, and tracking countless number of leads, a former army officer, trained as an intelligence officer, presents a case for government incompetence and, potentially, malfeasance. Shining a harsh light on the government and its secrets, The Government UFO Files: The Conspiracy of Cover-Up investigates what the government knows about encounters with UFOs, alien life, and mysterious activities.

The government has long collected information and assembled files on unidentified objects, extraterrestrial encounters, and strange convergences in the skies, but with new government secrets constantly being revealed (including finally admitting the existence of Area 51) is it too much to believe that it is hiding important information on close encounters, UFOs, and alien life? Nearly 100 sightings and other occurrences are thoroughly examined. Suppressed evidence, hidden plots, cover-ups, misleading statements, and documented connections to government intrigue are all addressed. It sorts through the information, sources, and it lets you decide whether the government is being deliberately misleading or whether the conspiracy theories have gotten out of control.

Read an Excerpt


Project Sign began, semi-officially, with the beginning of the New Year, 1948. And just a few days later, on January 7, 1948, Captain Thomas Mantell, leading a flight of F-51 fighters, encountered a UFO over Kentucky. Their original mission had been simply to move the aircraft from one airfield to another, but as they approached Fort Knox, Kentucky, they were asked to investigate a strange object that had been sighted overhead. Three of the aircraft turned toward the UFO, but the fourth, low on fuel, requested permission to land.

Mantell and his wingmen saw the object and began climbing toward it. Mantell was convinced that it was huge, metallic, and moving away from him at about half his speed. He told his wingmen that he was climbing to 25,000 feet, circle for ten minutes, and if no closer would break off the pursuit. He trimmed his aircraft to climb and then apparently lost consciousness due to a lack of oxygen at such high altitude. The plane continued to climb, finally stalled and fell into a power dive. At about 19,000 feet, the aircraft began to break up because of the external stresses. Mantell was killed in the crash.

The Air Force had a dilemma. One of its pilots, a National Guard pilot to be sure, but an Air Force pilot none the less, had been killed chasing a UFO. Not only that, there were literally dozens of witnesses who had seen the UFO as it drifted over southern Kentucky, including high-ranking officers who were in the airfield control tower and who provided detailed descriptions of the object. They had to act.

They decided that Mantell and the others had been fooled by Venus. They explained that Venus is bright enough to be seen in the daylight if you know where to look. It wasn’t a very good explanation, but it was one that didn’t involve an alien spacecraft. Michael Hall and Wendy Connors wrote, “The Sign team used Venus as a cover to explain away what at the time was an extensively publicized and long-investigated incident. Project Sign team members thought they might be forced to admit a far more shocking conclusion, but not before they had time to develop the ETH.”

Much later, according to the government files, the solution for the Mantell case was a Skyhook balloon. Given the information in the files, given the descriptions by those who saw it, this seems to be a solid solution. But the important point here is that in 1948, those at Project Sign believed it was an alien craft and that Mantell had died chasing it. They wished to study the phenomenon quietly and carefully so they allowed the wrong solution to be used until they had a chance to understand what was happening.
