When it comes to well documented UFO cases, especially involving Government and Military documents , there is one book to point out and that is Richard Dolan’s “UFO’s and the National Security State – The Chronology of a Cover-up”. Dolan has an academic background with the much-needed critical but open mind when researching such matters. He holds an MA in History from the University of Rochester and a BA in History from Alfred University. Prior to his interest in anomalous phenomena, Dolan studied US Cold War strategy, Soviet history, and international diplomacy.
“UFOs and the National Security State” is the first volume of a three-part historical narrative of the national security dimensions of the UFO phenomenon from 1941 to the present. Included are the records of more than fifty military bases relating to violations of sensitive airspace by unknown objects, demonstrating that the US military has taken the topic of UFOs seriously indeed. Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell called Dolan’s book “monumental,” while Dr. Hal Puthoff, Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin, declared it to be “a must-read for serious students in the field.”
Some believe that UFO’s are just developed Nazi technology or secret military projects but have nothing “ET” like to them, others explain UFO’s with Jungian psychology as a projection of our collective. For anyone who doubts that the UFO phenomena is real needs to read this book. It is well documented and clearly shows that government and military are very aware of the UFO issue and also that they do not have a handle on it.
“There is more than enough documentation to establish military interest in UFO’s. Attempted interceptions and military close encounters are a constant feature[…]The president/government doesn’t really know much at all and is not really in charge to begin with. The [privatized] military industrial complex and private transnational corporations seem to be involved with alien technology, UFO-crash retrievals, back-engineering and possible study of alien bodies, closed off from any government or official overview.” – Richard Dolan, (from his Keynote presentation at the UFO Conference, Laughlin, Nevada 2008)
Dolan also examines the rising of a National Security State (Military Industrial Complex), independent of official government supervision, as well as the issue of Disinformation and Counter Intelligence Programs (COINTELPRO), designed to deliberately spread false Information in order to keep the public away from the truth. I recommend reading the intro here. Compartmentalization is the name of the game, on a “need to know” basis. That’s how secrecy works. The well documented evidence for his claims can be found in his books. A good insight into his work is also this lecture he gave in September 2009:
