The great UFO mystery: PART TWO

Whether Adolf Hitler managed to escape Germany before May 1945 or, as the history books tell us, he committed suicide in his Berlin bunker on 30 April, Soviet leader Josef Stalin’s words of warning to British prime minister Winston Churchill and US president Harry Truman at the 1945 Potsdam conference that the German fuhrer could have slipped away to a secret Nazi fortress under Antarctica seems to have played on the minds of the Western allies.

So much so that in 1946 Truman deployed a fleet of 13 warships to the continent, comprised of “two icebreakers; two destroyers; two tenders, that carried three seaplanes each; two tankers; two supply ships; one submarine; two helicopters; the aircraft carrier Philippine Sea, carrying six DC3 twin-engine planes; the flagship Mt Olympus; and 4,700 marines”.

The purpose of the mission was allegedly exploratory but many believe its real purpose was an assault on the Nazi’s Neuschwabenland subterranean colony.

The naval component was known as Task Force 68 and was headed by famed polar explorer Admiral Richard Byrd, who was under orders “to consolidate and extend American sovereignty over the largest practical area of the Antarctic continent”.

The convoy departed from Norfolk, Virginia, on 2 December 1946 and was supported on its mission by a British-Norwegian force, a Russian contingent and some Australian and Canadian personnel.

Originally scheduled for a six-month tour, the “scientific” expedition was officially called “The United States Navy Antarctic Development Program” and given the codename “Operation Highjump”.

But around two months into Byrd’s expedition it was cancelled after what is sometimes referred to as the “battle of the Weddell Sea”.

During the battle Byrd’s fleet “encountered several flying discs that emerged from the water and attacked the ships in a 20-minute engagement”.

The flying discs are believed to have sunk the Pine Island and killed 68 marines, also shooting down one of the seaplanes and killing the three seamen onboard.

There are suggestions that Byrd called for Antarctica to be nuked, but Truman decided to beat a hasty retreat instead and after the fleet returned to the US the military had the admiral silenced.

But as the fleet passed through Chilean ports following the skirmish initial news stories based on interviews with crew members, who spoke to the press, reported “many fatalities”. And, rather than deny the heavy losses, Byrd told the Chilean press that Task Force 68 had encountered a new enemy that “could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds”.

His statements were never publicly confirmed by the US authorities and Byrd never spoke again to the press about Operation Highjump, leaving it for researchers to speculate for decades over what really happened and why he was kept quiet.

After the Soviet collapse in 1991, the KGB released previously classified files that threw more light on the mysterious mission. These reports formed the basis for a 2006 Russian documentary that made public, for the first time, a 1947 secret Soviet intelligence report commissioned by Stalin on Task Force 68’s mission to Antarctica.

The intelligence report, gathered from Soviet spies, revealed the US had sent the military expedition to find and destroy a hidden Nazi base and had encountered a mysterious UFO force that attacked the fleet, destroying several ships and a significant number of planes.

Indeed, it confirmed, the expedition had suffered “many casualties” as stated in initial press reports from Chile.

Two years before Operation Highjump took place, as hostilities in the European theatre of war drew towards their climax, US and Russian agents were involved in a desperate race to secure the scientists, engineers and technicians involved in the research into the Nazi "wonder weapons" and get their hands on the blueprints stashed away in the secret SS underground facilities dotted around the continent.

As part of “Operation Paperclip”, US forces instructed by Office of Strategic Services (OSS) director Alan Dulles rounded up as many of these boffins as they could and they were taken back to the US for debriefing and then farmed out to the defence contractors, intelligence services, military, oil and drug industries that rule North America to this day.

Wernher von Braun and his V-2 rocket team went on to orchestrate Nasa’s Apollo missions, while German technology formed the basis for many of the secret military projects that took place at facilities such as the Walker Air Force Base near Roswell in New Mexico.

In 1947 the site became the location for the last century’s most compelling UFO mystery, which the Roswell Daily Record claimed on 8 July to be the retrieval of a crashed flying saucer.

But 24 hours later the US military were claiming the wreckage was nothing more than a weather radar target.

The wreckage was first discovered by 48-year-old Lincoln County rancher Mac Brazel and his eight-year-old son, Vernon, and was reported to the Chaves County sheriff’s office after Brazel’s brother-in-law Hollis Wilson told him of reports about a spate of UFO sightings across 43 states that had been witnessed over a period of a few months.

This prompted Brazel to make his report to sheriff George Wilcox who later contacted Roswell Army Air Field about the incident.

And on 8 July it was reported in the Roswell Daily Record, which stated: “The intelligence office of the 509th Bombardment group at Roswell Army Air Field announced at noon today, that the field has come into possession of a flying saucer.”

The report added that intelligence officer Major Jesse Marcel had confirmed the disc was recovered from a ranch in the Roswell vicinity, after an unidentified rancher had notified Sheriff Wilcox about it.

It stated the intelligence officer had no details of the saucer's construction or its appearance and that it had been flown to “higher headquarters” for further inspection.

But the report also told how Mr and Mrs Dan Wilmot reported they had witnessed what they thought was a flying disc that had flown over the area the previous Wednesday night at about 10pm, flying in a northwesterly direction at a high rate of speed.

Wilmot said it appeared to him to be about 1,500 feet high and going fast, he estimated between 400-500 miles per hour.

“From where he stood Wilmot said that the object looked to be about five feet in size, and making allowance for the distance it was from town, he figured that it must have been 15 to 20 feet in diameter,” the report stated, adding that this was just a guess.

The report continued: “Wilmot, who is one of the most respected and reliable citizens in town, kept the story to himself hoping that someone else would come out and tell about having seen one, but finally today decided that he would go ahead and tell about it. The announcement that the RAAF was in possession of one came only a few minutes after he decided to release the details of what he had seen.”

Now what actually happened in Roswell will probably never be revealed beyond doubt, but reports from the time talk of mass sightings of UFOs across 43 states, which could be attributed to the hysteria of the post-war period or simply weather radar targets as the military claimed.

But given the proximity of the wreckage to Walker Air Force Base it is also very possible to have been a prototype of a re-engineered Nazi flying disc being secretly developed at the base. While another possibility is that the sightings and the Roswell incident were all linked to the new enemy that “could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds” which Byrd had witnessed during the battle of the Weddell Sea.

But the theory that seems to have gained most traction is that it was none of these worldly possibilities and that it was actually an extraterrestrial craft, but not one originating from a Draconian Antarctic staging post but one sent to snoop on the US’ clandestine military research by six-fingered aliens from a planet known as Serpo in the constellation Zeta Reticuli.

According to author Len Kasten the UFO crashed in the plains near Socorro, New Mexico, on 31 May 1947 and the remains of the craft and one living ET, along with the bodies of its four dead companions, were taken to Roswell for analysis.

Later some of the wreckage was discovered by Brazel who passed his findings on to the Chaves County sheriff’s office and the story was reported in the Roswell Daily Record.

But Kasten claims there were actually two crashed discs, with the remains of the second going undetected until about two years later. It appeared the two spacecraft had crashed into each other and by then six bodies of dead aliens from the second craft had decomposed. Even so, the remains were still taken to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for evaluation and study.

The living Roswell ET, later named EBE1 for “Extraterrestrial Biological Entity”, was co-operative with its captors and, although the US military were unable to understand its language, it learned how to communicate with them.

According to Kasten, the “Eben” spoke in a tonal dialect but it was able to inform its “keepers” it originated from Serpo, a planet about 40 light years away in the Zeta Reticuli system.

Working with the Eben visitor and the wreckage of its downed craft the military were then able to develop their own anti-gravity craft to counter the threat from the Nazi colony and their Draconian allies in the Antarctic.

Interestingly in 1959 three major newspapers in Chile carried front-page articles about UFO encounters in which the crew members appeared to be German soldiers and, in the early 1960s, there were reports in New York and New Jersey of flying-saucer “aliens” who spoke German, or English with a German accent.

Kasten claims EBE1 survived for about five years but before its death was able to utilise recovered parts from the wreckage to put the US military in contact with its race, which developed into close co-operation.

Kasten’s story is largely corroborated by the testimony of American whistleblower Bob Lazar, who appeared in a 1989 interview claiming to have been hired to reverse-engineer “extraterrestrial technology” obtained from the Roswell site in New Mexico in 1947.

Lazar claimed to have worked at a site called S4, which he alleged was a subsidiary installation of Area 51 located several kilometres south of the Nellis Air Force Base, and had examined an alien craft that ran on an anti-matter reactor powered by element 115.

He said the S4 facility was adjacent to Papoose Lake, located south of the main Area 51 facility at Groom Lake, and he claimed the site consisted of concealed aircraft hangars built into a mountainside.

His interview with investigative reporter George Knapp on Las Vegas TV station KLAS went out in May 1989. Lazar claimed his job was to help with reverse engineering one of nine flying saucers, which he alleged were extraterrestrial in origin.

In November that year Lazar appeared in a subsequent interview in which he claimed the propulsion of the vehicle was fuelled by a chemical element with atomic number 115, or “E115”, which at the time had not been discovered. He said the propulsion system relied on a stable isotope of E115, which allegedly generated a gravity wave that allowed the vehicle to fly and to evade visual detection by bending light around it. Although element 115 has now been created, no such isotope has yet officially been found to exist.

As for the Eben from Zeta Reticuli, they are more commonly referred to as “the Greys” and in exchange for their services in developing anti-gravity and other advanced technology the “industrial military complex” that rules our planet granted them approval to use the human species for their genetic experiments.

Theories suggest Greys are a hybrid race descended from Vegan humanoids who once populated a planet called Apex in the Lyran constellation and are using this planet as a supply depot for biological materials (people and cattle) used in genetic experimentation.

They are claimed to have telepathic abilities which allow them to magnify their mental field in order to exert control over humans... but there are also thought to be different species of Greys operating together in a loose alliance, some of humanoid origin, others reptilian and more closely allied to the Draconians.

The Zeta Reticulans are also said to have a base on this planet, but at the opposite end of the globe to the Draconian Antarctic subterranean complex… on the Russian-owned Aleutian Islands in the north Pacific, south of the Bering Sea.

For centuries we thought we were alone in the galaxy, and while there is still every possibility we are, we have to admit evidence is mounting to suggest this may not be so. Don’t miss PART THREE on the great UFO mystery… there’s a lot more information the industrial military complex is hiding from us!
