Former U.S. Government UFO Working Group Members Confirm Extraterrestrial Tales
Osseo, Minnesota May 06, 2007 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Minneapolis, MN (PRLEAP) May 7, 2007 — A confidential STAR Report by Starstream Research, a private provider of intelligence and analysis on futuristic defense issues, reveals that past and present members of the U.S. Government Intelligence Community continue to be concerned about an alien extraterrestrial presence.
In addition to the confidential report, a series of articles, available to the public at www.starstreamresearch.com tell the story of the United States Government's interest in the paranormal and unexplained phenomena, like UFOs. Copies of declassified documents are also available for viewing.
"To the Moon and Back, With Love" re-tells the story of Ingo Swann, a psychic secretly tested by the CIA in the mid-1970's at the Stanford Research Institute, adding additional documentation from the DIA STAR GATE program.
U.K. based phenomenologist Caryn Anscomb examines the intersection of mythology and the Intelligence Community in a series titled "Trickster Tales."
"Exempt from Legal Recourse" is an on-going investigation that uncovers a trail of counterintelligence activities aimed at members of the UFO community, surrounding allegations of an extraterrestrial presence.
According to Starstream Research founder Gary S. Bekkum, "No one has actually confirmed the existence of an alien invasion, but sources suggest high ranking figures in the intelligence community, including former Directors of Central Intelligence, have discussed this issue, at least in private."
Bekkum added, "We have also confirmed the existence of a Working Group on UFO's, the same group first reported by Howard Blum in his book, 'Out There'. We have an audio recording on file of a former CIA official stating that he had attended the first meeting of the working group in the 1980's."
An associate of Starstream Research verified that the voice on the tape was most likely the same Senior Intelligence Official she had been introduced to at a private meeting in Washington, D.C. in 2006.
Explanations provided for the existence of the original working group include radar anomalies known as "Fastwalkers," which are sometimes ignored as noise in signal traces.
According to reports published by Starstream Research, several sources contributed to similar rumors of actual contact with an extraterrestrial civilization. The original source of the so-called "core story" is unknown, but typically three contact events are said to have occurred, beginning in 1947, and continuing in the 1980's and 1990's.
"It has been difficult to determine the veracity of the material we have received, even when sourced from government representatives, because of the past use of UFO data for counterintelligence purposes."
Bekkum also noted that a similar tale had been fed to Howard Blum during the research phase of his book, in the 1980's. "Blum interpreted the passing of questionable material as a test by an unknown intelligence source. Starstream Research was alerted to the importance of Blum's out-of-print book from comments the CIA official made during the recorded phone conversation, which originated with a non-affiliated researcher based in the United Kingdom. It is unknown if the official was aware that he had been recorded. Given our close relationship to some of the same individuals, we need to emphasize that information provided to us, even by official sources, needs to be interpreted carefully."
The STAR Report remains confidential.
