OPEN LETTER TO
GOVERNOR SYMINGTON AND JAMES FOX
THE DISCLOSURE PROJECT
STEVEN M. GREER MD, DIRECTOR
14 November 2007
Dear Governor Symington and Mr. Fox,
Congratulations on an excellent press conference on
Monday. We are heartened to see the process of Disclosure continuing
and that some of the witnesses and materials brought forward by The
Disclosure Project (http://www.disclosureproject.org/)
are continuing to reach the public.
Regarding the request for a government/civilian
panel to investigate the UFO matter, while we appreciate your
laudable purpose in making this request, we are concerned about the
unintended strategic consequences of such a process. To wit:
- It is important to realize that powerful and well-funded
unacknowledged special access projects (USAPs) within sectors of
the US and other governments, and working largely through ‘work
for others’ contracts with private institutes and corporations,
have already been investigating the UFO/ET matter for decades.
- These projects are rogue, unconstitutional and transnational
in nature. In briefings that I conducted personally for CIA
Director R. James Woolsey, Defense Intelligence Agency Director
General Patrick Hughes, the Director of Intelligence, Joint Staff
(J2) and senior members of key Congressional committees (Senate
Intelligence Committee, House Government Oversight committee,
etc.) among others, it was made clear that the chain of command
has been subverted. Even after providing current project code
names and numbers to J2, and after he subsequently located one of
these USAPs within the Pentagon and demanded to be ‘read into’ (or
briefed) on the operation, this Admiral informed us that he was
denied access to these projects.
- The science and technology behind these ET vehicles have been
studied since at least the 1940’s and have been largely understood
and reproduced. Their energy and propulsion systems, once
disclosed, would eliminate the need for oil, gas, coal, nuclear
power, public utilities and so forth. Many UFO sightings are, in
fact, of these advanced aircraft which have been developed by
Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, SAIC and other military
contractors and were operational by the late 1950s.
- Importantly, in 1969 the Condon Committee at the University of
Colorado, a panel much like what you are recommending, became a
fraud perpetrated on the public, and its chairman, Dr. Condon, was
a secret, unacknowledged CIA asset (after briefing CIA Director
Woolsey and making a FOIA request, we obtained a CIA document that
establishes this fact). Dr. Robert Wood, then of McDonnel Douglas
Aerospace, was involved with the Condon Committee and discovered
that Dr. Condon was sanitizing any credible evidence from the
report and even withheld such evidence from other panel members
(see www.DisclosureProject.org witness testimony by Dr. Wood).
When Dr. Wood challenged Dr. Condon on this behavior, Dr. Condon
contacted Mr. McDonnel directly and attempted to get Dr. Wood
fired. Any such committee today would most likely be a similar
corrupt hoax and would seriously set-back Disclosure and only
deepen the cover-up.
- In light of the above, we recommend a strategy to have open,
secrecy-free hearings before a relevant Congressional committee,
such as the House Government Oversight Subcommittee for domestic
affairs, chaired by UFO-observer Rep. Dennis Kucinich, or some
other committee headed by a similarly honest and trustworthy
chairperson. Alternatively, a hearing by the UN or the World Court
would be an acceptable venue.
- Importantly, since The Disclosure Project now has over 400
military, government, corporate and intelligence witnesses from
around the world, as well as corroborating official documents and
project code numbers and names, such a pool of witnesses
testifying before an open, televised hearing would assure honest,
real-time Disclosure. This process, so long as open and conducted
by an honest chairperson, would be much less likely to be
corrupted than a government panel investigation.
I wish you great success in your important work
towards disclosing the truth about UFOs and wish to assure you that
all of us at The Disclosure Project stand ready to assist you and
this process in every way we can. Please feel free to contact me at
any time to discuss this matter further.
