UFO Debris, Disclosure, and Congressional Investigations
Disclosure are perpetual. Interestingly, many of the dynamics remain in tact to
a rather fascinating extent.
Take, for instance, this sample from a NICAP bulletin. “Falls” from UFOs were a
thing, as some readers may recall about the dubious 1947
Maury Island case and a 1950’s incident in Brazil investigated by Dr.
More material distributed by NICAP in the late 1950’s indicates its assessment
of a forthcoming “break in official secrecy in 1959.” Note the analysis (at the
bottom of the image) indicating suspicions UFO bases were located on Mars and
Venus. The speculation was due to interpretations of increases in UFO sightings
while the planets were closer to Earth.
“A constituent made an inquiry and I had it checked into,” Congressman Ayres explained further. “As I recall, a subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee had held hearings,” he added, a possible reference to the 1953 Robertson Panel or something similar.
It’s more understandable that UFO investigators in the 1950’s perceived such events to be greatly significant than it is when they express shock and awe today. The 1950’s researchers and reporters didn’t have the saturation level of unresolved hype and mountains of material that we, their successors, have available while currently forming our assessments.
Whether or not we use it, and whether or not it is omitted by supposed experts and journalists due to ulterior motives or incompetence, are questions the UFO genre appears destined to struggle with.
