The Epidemic of Disinformation About UFOs & Extraterrestrials: How Do We Know What’s Real?
October 1, 2018 By Arjun Walia
The Facts: The UFO truth movement and UFO awareness organizations have had a long history of infiltration by government agencies for the purposes of spreading disinformation.
Reflect On: How do we determine what is true, and what could be misinformation?
There has long been a disinformation and ridicule campaign associated with the UFO & Extraterrestrial phenomenon, which in some cases could be separate issues. This was well illustrated by the very first Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, who was quoted by the New York Times in 1960 stating that, “behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs, but through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”

Roscoe is one of approximately 500-1000 Ex high-ranking ‘government’ employees to blow the whistle on what’s really going on.
Below is another great statement, this time from Victor Marchetti, a former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
We have indeed been contacted – perhaps even visited – by extraterrestrail beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public. (Second Look, Volume 1, No 7, Washington, DC , May, 1979)
Witness testimony doesn’t usually qualify as credible, but when it appears in the form of hundreds of statements, if not thousands worldwide, and is backed by electrooptical data (radar trackings, observation, videos, pictures), it’s something that, at least today, has become nearly impossible to deny or ‘cover-up.’ This is why it was no surprise when the US government recently released video footage of these objects via the To The Stars Academy and also admitted to recovering materials from these objects, you can read the latest updates regarding the mainstream UFO disclosure movements that are taking place right now here, and find out more information about that.
Yes, there have been crashed craft and bodies recovered – Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut.
The point I was trying to get across with the above paragraph, is that the “official campaign of secrecy and ridicule” doesn’t seem to be happening anymore. Instead, we’ve seen a reversal, and the topic is now given a great deal of credibility within the mainstream, as it should.
I remember watching an interview with UFO researcher and historian Richard Dolan, and the topic was with regards to the modern day UFO disclosure movement, and how many people without verified credentials calling themselves ‘whistle-blowers’ are coming into the field and sharing a lot of information. He made the point that the field is now riddled with a number of credible, verified whistle-blowers, documents and other data and information that, when presenting it to the general public, it’s best to stick with that information to give it the most credibility. He also spoke and gave examples of several UFO organizations, like MUFON, that have their roots within the military. This means that many UFO transparency and research groups, all have their roots within the intelligence community. This is concerning, especially if you consider the Revelations of Richard C. Doty.
There is a conundrum there though, can we even trust all of the ‘official sources’? Can we trust any type of mainstream UFO disclosure from an establishment controlled government? How can we expect any sort of truth to be brought forth from the mainstream?
Sometimes, the information coming from people with extraordinary claims resonates with the research and experience that many people have had as well.
Richard C. Doty is a former special agent for the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations. He’s one of the hundreds with verified backgrounds speaking up about the topic. Not long ago, he made headlines, covered by media organizations like The Telegraph and Huffington Post, and The Guardian, when he stated that he was tasked with hoaxing documents and feeding false information to UFO researchers. He also infiltrated UFO awareness and activist groups, tasked with spreading disinformation across these networks. It’s yet another example of this sort of disinformation campaign.
This begs the question, have things really changed today? These days, there is no shortage of stories and information from people who have gained extreme possibility, yet present no proof at all to back up their claims of who they say they are. That being said, a lot of these people might be brainwashed and programmed in order to spread disinformation, and others may be genuine, but who really knows? The point remains, we have more than enough information and stories from credible people, as well as an abundance of information from contactees, abductees and experiencers that it really serves us best to stick with these sources as a way to best avoid any type of disinformation.
His job was to infiltrate and spread lies, in order to protect the truth, as well as gather and collect information on UFOs from foreign countries, something global intelligence agencies have been doing for years. Here’s a document, for example, showing the CIA’s interest in a meeting between the Russian and Chinese governments, years ago, regarding the exchange of information, as well as video and photographic evidence, regarding these unidentified aircraft.
Today, Doty is on record having published multiple books and given several interviews letting the world know that, according to him, we are not alone. Below is a clip of him appearing in the popular documentary, perhaps the most popular documentary of 2017 on Itunes & Netflix, “Unacknowledged,’ produced by the founder of the Disclosure Project, Dr. Steven Greer.
How Do We Know What’s Real?
I’ve been an avid researcher of this phenomena for a very long time, practically all of my life, and I can tell you that sometimes it feels the deeper you go into it, the more you realize you don’t know, and the more questions arise. One thing, however, is for certain, the phenomena is indeed real, something is going on, and most likely, some of these UFOs are indeed controlled or piloted by some sort of extraterrestrial intelligence.
It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centures. – Dr. Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of modern rocketry (source)
As far as what type of beings are visiting, what they what, why they are here, how they get here, and all of those questions, it’s really hard to decipher, especially if there is indeed a giant misinformation campaign that’s entwined within all of this. That being said, we’ve covered those topics and questions extensively to the best of our abilities, if you sift through the disclosure section of our website, you can read through all of our articles in this area (link below at the end of the article). At the end of the day, you really just have to do your research, put on your critical thinking cap and feel out what resonates with you. You could also use your own personal experiences, if you’ve had any, that would most likely influence how you feel about certain things. A lot of the time, when you’ve done a good amount of research, it becomes a little easier to decipher what may be true and what may not be true simply because you come across a number of correlations and synchronicities. Reasons for this cover-up are huge, it leaves no aspect of humanity untouched and brings forth new ideas and ways of doing things in the form of consciousness, science, history etc.. Once pandora’s box is open, it won’t close Based on my research, we can say for certain that we are not alone, we can say for certain that some of these UFOs are extraterrestrial, perhaps extradimensional, and we can say for certain that there has been a clandestine group that has attempted to answer the who, what why, where and how questions for decades. What they’ve discovered is and has been disclosed, slowly for decades, unfortunately, with a hefty dose of misinformation too. We’ve been writing about the topic for a long time, and all of our articles on the subject are archived in the disclosure section of our website, which you can visit here.
