9780330442961: Need to Know : UFOs, the Military, and Intelligence

Fact: In 1945, the US military recovered an alien spacecraft. Fact: The United States shot down several flying disks in the late 1940s, a period marked by an unprecedented wave of unexplained aircraft crashes.

The facts have continued only to mount over the past six decades in the classified files of military and intelligence agencies worldwide. Pilots the world over have reported incidents with UFOs that have often been accompanied by electrical interference and communications difficulties. UFOs have prompted more secrecy and security-and deception-than any other concern ever on the part of military specialists and intelligence chiefs around the world. An acknowledged authority on the controversial subject of UFOs, and an indefatigable researcher, Timothy Good in this revelatory book tells us what we need to know.

Review:

Above Top Secret is a bible for UFO watchers.

The evidence that Good has amassed is too overwhelming to ignore and it is clear that a more open debate is long overdue.


In this exhaustive and provocative polemic, Good (Above Top Secret, Alien Liaison), UFO researcher extraordinaire, endeavors to demonstrate that incontrovertible proof of UFOs is being buried by a global conspiracy of governments, academia and the media. Good catalogues hundreds of sightings of unidentified flying objects from the 1920s through the present and marshals scores of declassified government reports, news stories and eyewitness affidavits to support his often-controversial contentions: not only are aliens here, but the U.S. military has established contact with them; President Eisenhower met with aliens in 1954 at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.; President Kennedy viewed alien bodies at an air force medical facility in Florida; President Nixon arranged for comedian Jackie Gleason to view alien bodies in 1973. Good emphasizes a lengthy record of credible witnesses, including military and airline pilots, who have reported unexplained phenomena, but he fails to provide incontrovertible evidence of UFOs, extraterrestrials or a global conspiracy of secrecy. Moreover, he ignores contradictory testimony, exaggerates rumors and circumstantial evidence, and reprises old charges. Nonetheless, UFO enthusiasts will appreciate this comprehensive and spirited UFO defense and the hundreds of supporting documents reproduced within.

An obsessively researched look at what British sky-watcher Good (Alien Contact, 1993, etc.) deems ample international evidence of UFO visitations since the 1930s, and the repeated official denials that they ever happened. "UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head," declared former Canadian Minister of Defence Paul Hellyer in 2005. Good methodically lays out similar testimony from pilots, military men in air and sea, civilian observers, surgeons who operated on the extraterrestrials, generals and presidents, accompanying their words (some from sworn affidavits) with meticulous footnotes, photos, drawings and copies of documents. During World War II, small, seemingly remote-controlled flying objects dubbed "foo-fighters" created a nuisance for pilots. In the summer of 1946, a rash of sightings of "ghost rockets" across Scandinavia and other parts of Europe alarmed the U.S. military, which blamed them on the Soviets. Good believes UFO incursions were common in 1940s New Mexico, the site of U.S. atomic testing, and avers that the debris found near Roswell in 1947, quickly identified by the military as fragments from a military balloon, was in fact the remains of a flying-saucer crash. He chronicles alien-disc sightings during the Cold War, suggests that Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy were taken to disc-landing sites and maintains that since the 1940s, aliens have been communicating "with an elite group of U.S. military and scientific intelligence personnel [and] there has been a project was actually motivated by growing concerns about alien hostility, the author adds. The bizarre crash of a cigar-shaped craft near Varginha, Brazil, in January 1996 stranded strangecreatures needing medical attention. Good excerpts some chilling material from an interview conducted by a fellow UFOlogist with comments are conflated into quotes collectively attributed to "Medical Personnel." The author certainly knows his stuff, and to his credit is keenly aware of the importance of documentation, however specious some of it may seem to the unconverted.

Book Description Pan MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Unabridged edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. UFOs remain essentially a military and intelligence problem - and one demanding unprecedented security and deception, with access to information on a strictly need to know basis. As early as 1960 former CIA director Admiral Hillenkoetter confirmed that, behind the scenes, high-ranking air force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. The same could be said today. Based on many years of research by one of the world s most respected authorities on alien phenomena, Need to Know draws on top-secret documents, reports of encounters with large craft of unknown origin from pilots and personnel aboard aircraft carriers and destroyers and interviews with high-ranking military insiders. It is full of revelations, including the alarming escalation of aircraft accidents and the disappearance of hundreds of military aircraft during UFO encounters and recent near-misses with UFOs. The evidence is clear, balanced - and irrefutable. Bookseller Inventory # AA79780330442961
