Examiner: Historian Richard Dolan: UFO & extraterrestrial disclosure to occur in 5 years

Richard DolanIn an exclusive ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre released on April 27, 2011, historian and author Richard Dolan states that he estimates authentic and genuine UFO and extraterrestrial disclosure will occur in approximately 5 years from 2011.

Richard Dolan “is the author of two volumes of history, UFOs and the National Security State, as well as an analysis of the future, A.D. After Disclosure: The People’s Guide to Life After Contact. Richard’s writing is widely seen as ufology’s gold standard. His seminal history, UFOs and the National Security State, has inspired such statements as “the best history ever written about UFOs� by best-selling author Whitley Strieber, and “masterful and important� by Dr. Edgar Mitchell of Apollo 14.�

ET disclosure is a paradox

Richard Dolan: “I think disclosure will happen, but it will be forced.� ExopoliticsTV interview

Asked if there is any reason to believe that ET disclosure will happen in our lifetime, Mr. Dolan states that ET disclosure is a paradox. The human controllers that possess the “secret� of the ET presence have no real motivation to disclose it and may well decide to continue with their practice of continuing to conceal the ET presence.

The ETs also have a low-key presence, Mr. Dolan states in his interview, in terms of the artifacts and contacts that they leave with humanity such as ET contactees and abductees. The ETs have no made any official public announcement of their presence and have been operating by stealth as well as the human controllers.

Mr. Dolan states, "Then there is 'us', our human civilization – the variable that is going to force disclosure in terms of the rapid acceleration of change in human society. In 1991, 20 years ago, humanity barely had the Internet and an ability to communicate with each other. If we look at future changes, we can expect to have computers that will be as close to sentient, thinking beings that we can think of with IQs of 500 or more."

Mr. Dolan asks, "In this kind of future environment, are we going to still be under ET information embargo? Wikileaks or a copycat organization can have a huge impact on ET disclosure on our society within 5 years with a high computing and information technology."

ET Disclosure is not the end of a process, according to Mr. Dolan. It is the beginning of a new way of relating, and will require ongoing efforts at citizen-led prying out of information from institutions like the U.S. Presidency and the U.S. government.

ET abductions and extraterrestrial disclosure

In his interview, Richard Dolan addresses the issue of abductions of humans by extraterrestrials. Mr. Dolan states that ET abductions are one of the most explosive aspects of the entire extraterrestrial situation. He states that there is no indication that the abducting grey ETs are promoting ET disclosure or that the human power structure is promoting disclosure. If disclosure is to happen it will be because we the public, including abducted humans force disclosure to happen.

Mr. Dolan states that he does not envy any US President that has to make this announcement. Within 60 seconds of any Presidential announcement, many people will be asking about ET abductions. Are abductions true? Will abductions by ETs be on the negotiating table? How do we deal with fact that potentially millions of people have been taken with their memories of these abductions altered?

Clandestine cold and hot war with ETs?

Richard Dolan states there is a long history of the U.S. military chasing UFO objects, which tells him there may be a state of cold or hot war going on with some part of the extraterrestrial presence.

When asked about secret agreements with the US government allowing abductions to occur, Mr. Dolan answers “Possibly yes – we cannot be sure. None of us have access to absolute certainty with documents. We have to rely on leaks and documents.�

He continues, “One of the problems with disclosure is that it is going to open up a real mess with us. We may or may not be able to have an ET person standing next to the President when she or he makes this announcement. It is going to take a generation or more for the difficulties of disclosure to begin to be digested.

“It may be that our own society will be fragmented after disclosure, and that the problems will get a lot worse after disclosure before they get better.�

Mr. Dolan concludes, "For example, how will we know to a certainty that there may have been an agreement in 1954 to allow ET abductions in exchange for advanced ET technology? How will we be able to ascertain this after disclosure?"

Breakaway civilization and ET disclosure

In addressing the "breakaway civilization" concept in his interview, Mr. Dolan stated this had to do with the black budget world and its ability to make technological breakthroughs, such as electrogravitics, anti-gravity, sources of free energy that would replace petroleum.

According to Mr. Dolan, the breakaway civilization would veto this new free energy form from entering the civilian economy and yet would keep on researching in energy, propulsion, quantum access, and artificial intelligence. The definition of a civilization includes a cosmology, a technology, and relations with the rest of the world. In all of these measures the black budget world is “a break-away civilization.� The breakaway civilization may not be totally divorced from this world, and may be an “Alternative 3� type of separateness.

ET disclosure vs. ET intervention

At about 26 minutes into his interview, Mr. Dolan states, “Our human capabilities as a society are what can break through the secrecy of the breakaway civilization. It can happen within 5 years. A few years ago I would have said disclosure would have happened 20 years from now. Now I say ET disclosure can happen 5 years from now."

Mr. Dolan continues, "If disclosure occurs, it might occur within about 5 years."

Mr. Dolan was asked about a parallel line of exopolitical research that also converges on extraterrestrial disclosure happening in about five years time.

This exopolitical research suggests the existence of an ET galactic governance council that has stated that it may intervene to clean the earth’s ecology within about 5 years. Two contactees of this reported ET council, former NORAD officer Stanley A. Fulham and a former NATO Spanish intelligence officer independently stated they have been in contact with the ET council and predicted its UFO overflights over New York on October 13, 2011, November 24, 2011, and over Moscow, Russia and London, UK in January 2011.

In his interview, Mr. Dolan states, “I have my own quiet sources and I have not at any point gotten any reason to believe there is a galactic ET council. I have reason to believe there are multiple groups that are interacting with us for their own agendas.

“As a researcher, it is very hard to embrace information like the galactic governance council.�

Mr. Dolan continues, “How do we deal with information like this [the galactic governance council? We deal with the information with caution. This does not mean that we throw the information out. We qualify all statement with a proviso that is an unproven claim.�

Mr. Dolan states, “Because of the unequal power relationships we are dealing with vis a vis our government, we have to consider sources that cannot be verified and we have to subject unverified sources such as the galactic governance council to as much rigor and independent vetting as we can.

Mr. Dolan continues, “The Power structure does not need to completely debunk what we do. They just need to sow the seeds of doubt, provide enough of a counter argument.

“We need to counter their seeds of doubt with rigorous research,� he concludes.

Authentic UFO/ET disclosure vs. recent FBI and NSA disclosure

Richard Dolan’s predictions of authentic UFO/ET disclosure in approximately 5 years from 2011 come on the heels of the recent releases by the FBI and the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) of UFO and extraterrestrial-related documents, most of which were first publicly released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in the 1970s or 1980s. While FBI and NSA may have released these with the intent creating the appearance of “UFO/ET disclosure�, further examination leads to a conclusion that genuine ET disclosure has not taken place

For example, in his interview Mr. Dolan discusses one of the UFO documents recently purportedly at the FBI website regarding a reported 1948 UFO crash event at Aztec, New Mexico were in fact first released under Freedom of Information (FOIA) in 1977 to UFO researchers.

Likewise, the recent NSA “release of UFO and extraterrestrial-related documents� is limited to 42 sets of documents. The preponderance of these documents are documents generated by the UFO research community. NSA states in a brief preface to its release, “In 1980, NSA was involved in Civil Action No. 80-1562, "Citizens Against Unidentified Flying Objects Secrecy v. National Security Agency". Documents related to that litigation are marked with ‘*’.� An inordinate number of the UFO-related documents released by NSA relate to legal papers in the 1980 lawsuit brought by CAUS under the leadership of Arizona attorney Peter Gerstein, over 30 years ago.

Reached for comment in Sedona, Arizona, attorney Peter Gerstein of CAUS stated that the CAUS documents NSA recently "released" has in fact been released publicly by NSA approximately 20 years ago, and that this recent NSA "release" did not constitute a new release.�

Moreover, Other official U.S. government documents released by NSA include 9 State Department reports and a set of NSA Communications Intelligence (COMINT) reports.

The NSA documents released are designed to confirm the SETI model - Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The SETI model holds that extraterrestrial intelligence is not in Earth's immediate environment, and can only be located by sending radio signals to deep space. Thus, rather than an “ET disclosure�, the NSA release is in fact a functional “coverup� of the UFO and ET presence in the near-Earth environment.
