What follows will not be new to any experienced UFOlogist like myself. In the
course of my fifty years of UFOlogy I have gradually come to know, at first
hand, the sinister veil of secrecy placed over the whole UFO phenomenon.
My wife Heather, since joining me in 1972, has also been witness to this coverup.
We are not fooled by the often ridiculous, even childish explanations offered by Royal Australian Air Force and other Defence hierarchy, for mystery craft seen in the
sky or which have left traces of their having landed in remote, isolated areas.
planet Venus”, Meteorites”, “weather balloons”, marsh gas”, “migrating ducks” are ‘explanations’ which fool no-one! And yet these authorities continue to present
explanations for UFO sightings even close encounters, which defy commonsense!
And when these ‘explanations’ don’t work, particularly in the cases of those
who go public in the media with their experiences, these authorities turn to using dirty
tactics which usually involve ridiculing these reports and the credibility of the
eyewitnesses in the media, so that the ordinary public ends up by thinking these
people are either crazy or trying to ‘put one over’ everyone!
Often there are individuals who, dissatisfied by official explanations, become
too nosey, and begin to dig deeper into the mystery to discover a cover-up. The
response to these people is outright intimidation, and veiled warnings not to go any
further, or else they could find themselves in ‘big trouble’!
Some people just disappear without trace.
From the very moment that I had my now-famous article “UFO Base Under
the Blue Mountains” published in the late Don Boyd’s now legendary “Paranormal
and Psychic Australian” magazine [January 1978, Vol 3, No 1] I attracted the
[undercover] attentions of ASIO and the phone taps began in earnest.
Not content with listening in on our phone conversations, some ASIO spies
want to meet us in the flesh, and have done this by posing as UFO enthusiasts
wanting to join our Blue Mountains UFO Research Club.
They are just too obvious,
attend one meeting and never come back, probably disappointed that our members
are not involved in manufacturing a nuclear bomb, or perhaps a flying saucer!
