The NORAD Briefing Document
By Victor Viggiani, B.A., M. Ed.
It is of no surprise whatsoever that to some, if not all elected officials, the military and intelligence communities in Canada as well as in other G-20 countries are not responsive to, nor do they have any motivation to address, disclose or clarify this highly contentious political issue. This situation has unfolded because of wide spread obfuscation, secrecy, silence and the use of tactics known as compartmentalization and plausible deniability concerning the UFO matter among high ranking intelligence and government officials for over 65 years.
Little doubt exists as to why, you as an elected official or as a member of the press who may read this brief, may consider the UFO matter preposterous. Essentially the matter has been manipulated and disfigured beyond recognition by decades of ridicule. This brief is an attempt to reconcile this disfigurement and put our government and the fifth estate on the road to acknowledgement and action.
It is not necessarily the fault of elected officials that they possess little or no knowledge of what has been occurring in our skies. Most, simply have not been attentive to the decades-long investigations into the substantive documentation available by former military personnel, former government employees and independent researchers – most of whom during their careers may have been part of the machinery to keep this information from the public and elected officials.
While politicians and the media were consumed by planning how to manage WW II, the Cold War, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the race to the Moon, the JFK assassination, the fall of Communism, the Berlin Wall, 911, Iraq and Iran, terrorists and a myriad of financial and political crises - between and among these events, a well orchestrated machinery engineered and precluded any serious mention or possibility of the UFO issue emerging as the third rail of US or Canadian politics.
In the midst of global disasters, financial collapses and cyclic eras of war - craft of unknown origin have proliferated - seen by citizens and military pilots, tracked on radar and identified as unknowns - coming and going in our airspace with impunity for decades. NORAD has witnessed it, the Belgian military has witnessed it, US Air Force pilots have witnessed it. How much longer can this matter be ignored?
The major flaw in any statement by government officials that UFOs do not exist or are not a threat to national security is that the matter has never been investigated in order to justify such a statement.
This is revealed in a statement by the highest-ranking intelligence official in the US - a Navy Admiral who was mindful and fully aware of the UFO issue. No better example exists that confirms officials behind the scenes knew something peculiar was going on. Military officials of rank in the 1950s and 60s were in fact keenly aware of the UFO problem. In no way did they considered the UFO matter preposterous, but that it was indeed a matter of grave trepidation and uncertainty – primarily because at that time – other than a highly select level within the military and intelligence community - few really understood or knew about what was actually occurring. Eventually a few brave individuals began to speak out.
After several years of avoiding the UFO issue, the highest-ranking intelligence officer on the planet – the first director of the CIA, Navy Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter - broke his silence. He stated in the New York Times - Feb 27 1960:
“It is time for the truth to be brought out... 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... I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about Unidentified Flying Objects...”
Decades later in 2002 John Podesta former Chief of Staff under President Bill Clinton stated at The National Press Club in Washington DC:
“I think it's time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It's time to find out what the truth really is that's out there. We ought to do it because it's right, we ought to do it because the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth and we ought to do it because it's the law.”
We trust that Canada – its strong media and proud government will assume a bold responsive leadership role in North America with respect to the questions raised in this document – questions of substantial gravity and unremitting global apprehension. We are at an impasse; the secrecy and silence must come to an end. Each of the signatories to this brief is profoundly convinced that a dialogue among the Government, the Electorate and the Press is fundamental to bridging this issue with the social contract that currently exists among these three parties – it is the only way a resolution to the current impasse can and will be achieved.
From a political, legal and journalistic perspective – little more needs to be said other than: “Constitutionally, government has always been given the right to keep secrets – but it has never been given the right to lie to its people.”
To Elected Representatives
We trust that this matter will be addressed and that you will respond responsibly to our questions in a serious and timely manner. We hope your genuine and personal consideration of this matter will prompt the next stage in the process to determine what authentic steps may be forthcoming to bring about clarity and transparency to this matter – a matter that has historically been relegated to ridicule, secrecy and silence by both elected government officials and those in the military and intelligence communities. This must change.
To Members of the Press: It is time to take over the job that UFO researchers have been doing for you for over 65 years. Researchers have amassed enormous tomes of documentation that - in a court of law would produce a conviction - scilicet. This documentation is readily available. The next step is yours.
We the undersigned look forward to your timely response.
