This review is from: UFOs and the National Security State: The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991: 2 (Paperback)
When the author spoke to me in Washington DC in April 2009 about this, the then-unpublished middle-volume of his planned three-volume history of the UFO phenomenon and its management by the "National Security State", he was pleased with the result. This second book, he felt, was a more coherent narrative than the first in presenting a clearly argued and compelling case for the existence of the worldwide cover-up and also in exploring the real nature of the "black world", what might be going on behind the scenes with deconstructing ET-derived technology and where it might all be leading. His tentative conclusions for the consequences of secrecy and for the future are as radical as they are intriguing.

Readers may be aware that Dolan originally planned to write a two-volume history of "UFOs and the National Security State." The first volume covered the years 1947-73 and has become a minor classic. However, he soon discovered that the quantity of pertinent material and documentation from 1973 onwards was too great to accommodate into a single book, so has divided the narrative into two further volumes. This is to be the middle one of the series, covering 1973-91 and concluding with the geo-political changes following the end of the Cold War with the dissolution of the USSR in 1989-91 and its impact on how the ET-UFO issue was subsequently managed.

The book follows a broadly chronological narrative from 1973 to 1991 and is on one level an excellent summary of the open history of the UFO phenomenon in this period. Dolan takes a global perspective and explores major encounters and the interactions of UFOs with the air forces and military of different nations, particularly the Soviet Union, and how effectively these events were media-managed. The efforts of Grenada's Prime Minister Eric Gairy to bring the UFO issue to the UN and a detailed examination of the Belgian black-triangle wave are particularly noteworthy examples.

The development of UFOlogy through the period is analyzed with just the right amount of detail. Leonard Stringfield's original revelations about the alleged crash-retrieval and cover-up of alien artefacts, the disinformation campaign behind the MJ-12 documents and the professional debunking campaigns of Philip Klass are some examples. The extravagant and unsubstantiated claims of Cooper and Lear are placed in historical context; the Hudson Valley and Gulf Breeze waves, LMH's exposure of the cattle mutilations and the parts played by Budd Hopkins, Whitley Strieber and others in this period in exposing the abduction phenomenon for the first time are all written in a factual, informed and non-judgmental style which makes for absorbing reading. Dolan makes a convincing case that the birth of the internet had the most enormous and significant impact ever on UFOlogy, and changed it permanently.

Dolan has been criticised by more skeptical commentators for some of his methodology - the citing of a few "dead" references, use of uncorroborated (i.e. evidentially weaker) sightings and of course, his "Grand Conspiracy" narrative. There is some small merit in these criticisms, but Dolan always makes clear when he is reporting factually and when he is cautiously speculating.

The "Grand Conspiracy" narrative comes from the author's attempt to tie together the 60-year UFO cover-up, the evidence of appropriation of trillions of dollars by the "black world" to develop radical new aero-technologies derived from retrieved alien vehicles (possibly with assistance from actual Earth-based extraterrestrials), and the various informal international organizations promoting globalization. It is the author's view that during this period, evidence of the manufacture and deployment of new technologies derived from ET sources emerged: the goings-on at Area 51/Groom Lake/Dreamland initially reported by Bob Lazar and multiply-witnessed flights over the Nevada desert of vehicles with extraordinary flight characteristics; consistent reports of "Alien Reproduction Vehicles," the legends about the "Aurora" and the use of revolutionary anti-gravity technology in new aircraft like the B2 bomber. There's a lot of stuff on this, from many sources, and if not conclusive then it's certainly compelling. Less compelling is the speculation that organizations broadly promoting globalization and international co-operation such as the Bilderburgers might be party to the ET secret, and be involved in the cover-up in some way. This reviewer finds little compelling evidence presented to support this speculation, and the Rockerfeller Initiative would seem to argue that many "old-money" people know little of what is happening in the "black world" unless directly involved in the development of these new technologies. But the truth is, we just don't know.

In the concluding chapter, the author writes:

"Secrecy relating to UFOs was a logical course of action initially that became an addiction the longer it continued. The longer maintained, the harder to reveal, and the greater the gap between official and black world societies. One might therefore think that this secrecy, which continues to this day, is bound to last indefinitely."

This line of reasoning, together with evidence for the secret development and deployment of ET-derived technology so advanced that it has little relationship to that known in open society, Dolan claims argues for the possible existence of a "breakaway civilization" grown in secret, whose understanding of concepts such as time, matter, advanced physics, gravity, human consciousness and mind control may now be decades ahead of the mainstream culture and its current academic paradigms. Different civilizations with different levels of scientific understanding have, he argues, existed simultaneously on this planet in the past and had few or no points of contact. No doubt the author will develop this hypothesis in his third book, which will take the history up to the present day and to which we should look forward with interest.

It's important to state that the author ends the book on a broadly optimistic note, and sees the cover-up to be impossible to maintain indefinitely as for example a spectacular mass sighting witnessed by thousands of people might be undeniable in the internet age of instant global information-sharing, and that will be the end of it. The human race as a whole will then need to confront its future with new paradigms, whether ready or not.

Meanwhile, if you have not read "...The Cover-up Exposed", it's time you did. At 583 densely-written pages (excluding the extensive bibliographies and index) it can be intimidating, but don't be put off. It's beautifully written by an intelligent, informed and literate writer, it's worth the effort and time, and if you're interested at all in the most important subject of the age, you should read it.

This review is from: UFOs and the National Security State: The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991: 2 (Paperback)
This scholarly and very readable 637-page book is the second of a three-part series by Richard Dolan. It deals with the years 1973-91. The first volume covered the years 1941-73. The third volume is still in the pipeline. The author gives a detailed history of the UFO phenomenon, interweaving it with fascinating commentary on concurrent historical and political events. There's a particular focus on what Dolan believes to be a major and long-running cover-up by the US government and its agencies regarding UFO matters.

CASE MATERIAL

The book cites a mass of case material from around the world. Given the encyclopaedic nature of his endeavour, the author has drawn on numerous sources. No doubt some of them are more reliable than others. Correctly, in my view, Dolan regards the UFO phenomenon as being very real, and one that often has a physical aspect (i.e. it's certainly not just a matter of misperception, misreporting, hoaxing, or imagination).

Dolan appears to believe that many UFOs are exotic craft, operated or controlled by aliens. Arguably, though, some of the cases mentioned in the book don't fit well with that interpretation. Take, for example, an incident that reportedly occurred in the Canary Islands on the night of 22nd June 1976 (pp. 121-4). There were various witnesses, including a Dr Francisco Julio Padron and his driver, Francisco Estevez. Padron and Estevez were heading to Galdar, on the north-west coast of Grand Canary Island, when they saw a large spherical object hovering just above the ground, some 60 yards off the road. Estevez brought the car to a sharp halt. According to Padron, the object was perfectly round and about the size of a three-storey building. It was transparent enough for stars to be seen through it, and it contained two human-like figures, which were reportedly well over six feet tall, and were wearing bright red garments and cloth-like helmets or turbans of some sort. They appeared to be studying a control panel, and their heads seemed to glow. Estevez reported that they had very bright, large eyes. The car's radio went dead, and the men experienced a feeling of intense cold. The object began to rise, and expanded to an incredible size, comparable to that of a 20-storey building. It then assumed the shape of a spindle, surrounded by a halo, and shot off at an amazing speed.

Now, to my mind, this sounds more like a STAGED PERFORMANCE - a theatrical paranormal display, orchestrated by a higher intelligence - than an encounter with alien visitors from a remote planet or from 'another dimension'. If the UFO was an exotic space ship, it's surprising that its occupants were so human-like! On the other hand, if humans have incorporated alien technology in advanced flying craft (as has been suggested - see below), it may be that some UFOs are indeed exotic space ships.

HISTORICAL AND POLITICAL CONTEXT

Dolan's book contains interesting commentary on the behaviour of US administrations. For example, in respect of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in early August 1990, he explains (pp. 544-5) that several days before the invasion, Saddam Hussein discussed Kuwait with April Glaspie, the US ambassador to Iraq. By that time, thousands of Iraqi troops were massed at the border with Kuwait. He explained that he wanted to "keep the whole of Iraq in the shape we wish it to be." (Oil-rich Kuwait had been split off from the rest of Iraq years earlier, by the British.) But Glaspie reportedly told him that the US had no opinion on the matter, which could be interpreted as meaning that the USA would be neutral if Iraq invaded Kuwait. But when it did, the US president, George H. W. Bush, condemned Saddam as a new Hitler and mobilized a UN force against him!

Dolan contends that the UFO phenomenon has been covered up by elements of the US government over the years. In fact, he goes further, suggesting that international groups and corporations are becoming more dominant than nation states, and that much 'black budget' finance in the USA is in the hands of private or semi-private organizations, with little or no public accountability. He appears to believe that secret military and aerospace programmes have incorporated advanced alien technology, and that those privy to this cutting-edge science and technology are keeping the rest of humanity in the dark, denying it access to vastly cheaper and more efficient energy and propulsion methods.

On pp. 457-61, Dolan reports a story that an aviation designer, Brad Sorensen, related to Mark McCandlish, an aviation illustrator, about something that Sorensen had supposedly witnessed in November 1988 at the Lockheed Skunk Works facility in Palmdale, California. According to Sorensen, he was with someone who'd formerly been senior in the USA's Department of Defense. They saw some advanced aircraft in a hangar, including three flying saucers. The latter were floating off the floor. A general, addressing some people nearby, reportedly described the saucers as "Alien Reproduction Vehicles" (ARVs), and claimed, among other things, that the ARV could operate at "light speed or better"!

Dolan explains that when Sorensen first told McCandlish and others about this, he said that he'd seen the ARVs at Norton Air Force Base (California) rather than at the Lockheed facility. Of course, his changing his story could be seen as diminishing its credibility. But Dolan states that, in 1992, McCandlish met a man called Kent Sellen, who, in 1973, at Edwards Air Force Base (also in California), reportedly saw a craft exactly matching Sorensen's description of the ARV. Furthermore, Dolan notes (p. 8) that by the end of the 1980s, aerial objects with unusual flight characteristics had been seen in California's Antelope Valley (home to many of the USA's leading aviation and aerospace companies), and at Nevada's Area 51. They were, he surmises, "surely made by the U.S. defense industry"; and he adds that in the judgement of observers, including aviation and aerospace experts, they seemed to be using a form of field propulsion (anti-gravity).

These views make Dolan a conspiracy theorist. But I don't mean that in a pejorative sense, since it's an established fact that governments, government agencies, corporations and people in positions of power have sometimes perpetrated conspiracies. (Watergate and the Iran-Contra affair readily spring to mind.) Furthermore, whether or not he's entirely right, there's nothing inherently unreasonable or paranoid in Dolan's analysis. Indeed, it's undeniable that there's been officially-sponsored disinformation regarding UFO-related matters in the USA. For example, in 1947, in respect of the so-called Roswell incident, the United States Army Air Force (as it was then called) quickly retracted its initial claim - that it had recovered a crashed disc - and falsely stated that the object was a weather balloon.

CONCLUDING COMMENTS

There are minor flaws in the book (grammatical errors, typos, etc.), although that's probably inevitable with a major work of this size and scope. In places, there are footnotes, linked to the main text with asterisks. Unfortunately, however, in the main text, the asterisks are tiny, and hence very easy to miss! Overall, though, I regard this as an excellent book, well deserving of five stars.

At the back of the book, there's a page giving information about the author, including his website address. I tried to communicate with him, using the e-mail address given there; disappointingly, though, he didn't reply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fascinating study and analysis by Richard Dolan, 13 Oct 2013
In my opinion few other books in this field have better conveyed an author's excitement and passion for his subject matter, and demonstrated more skill in making an enjoyable and useful narrative out of such an astonishing volume and range of reports, analyses, and other material than this major work. This book continues Mr. Dolan's chronological survey and analysis of reports of alien craft, aliens, and their activities in modern times. He describes and analyses how political elites (focussing on the US), military and security services, scientists, the media, official and private sector investigators, researchers, analysts, and the general public have tried to deal with the challenge.

As in his previous book UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973 published in 2002, Mr. Dolan supplies key details such as places and dates of observations, encounters, meetings, etc., as well as the names of people involved. This information together with details of relevant reports, books, and other documents, and other events and data enables anyone to do their own further reading and research, especially now that so many original documents, reports, newspapers, books, video and audio files, etc. are available to view, download, or purchase online.

During this period (1973 - 1991) it became possible to better assess the activities of at least some aliens, or their surrogates. Already, in the mid to late 1960s, analyses of reports of alien craft, aliens or their surrogates, and their activities starting in the U.S. in the late 19th century, had suggested a pattern of deception, including the spreading of misinformation or disinformation by the aliens. These conclusions were perhaps most clearly and forcefully expressed in the output of the journalist, investigator, analyst, and author John A. Keel.

It seems almost certain that aliens or their surrogates masqueraded as human aviators in the US during 1896 - 1897, and again in 1909 (first in simulated "airships" and later in "aircraft"). If so, then in the last half of the 20th century at least some aliens may have disguised themselves or their surrogates as "astronauts" that crewed what appeared to be advanced aerospace craft. These aliens pretended to be exploring the Earth, although they often appeared to do so in a suspiciously random and desultory manner.

Also, from at least the late 19th century onwards aliens seem to have pretended to "inspect", "repair", or "maintain" whatever craft they were seen with or in, for example, "airships", "aircraft", or aerospace craft, in some cases requesting the assistance of people whom they encountered (or selected).

A relatively benign and hopeful interpretation of this deceptive behaviour is that we humans have the potential to analyse and duplicate their advanced propulsion and energy generation systems, and so it was important for them to try to disguise their transportation systems as being of human origin, usually at the leading edge of our contemporary science and technology at any particular point in time.

Unfortunately, if one accepts some of the conclusions of Mr. Keel, it seems equally possible that the alien deceptions, misinformation, and disinformation may actually have been intended to distract and confuse us and prevent us from discovering their real activities. These may have included the abduction of human beings and the killing of animals in what has been called the animal mutilation phenomenon. Private sector investigators and analysts discovered during the time-frame covered by Mr. Dolan, that the abduction of people was happening on a much larger scale than had previously been imagined.

It was no longer possible to propose that the phenomena only comprised the reported experiences of a few people who had undergone a single experience of being kidnapped opportunistically by aliens because they happened to be vulnerable and available, while they were travelling, working, etc. in geographically-remote areas, usually at night. See, for example, the experiences of Mrs. Betty and Mr. Barney Hill: The Interrupted Journey by Mr. John G. Fuller, published in 1966, and Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World's First Documented Alien Abduction by Mr. Stanton T. Friedman, MSc., and Ms. Kathleen Marden, published in 2007.

During 1973 - 1991 reports and books began to reveal not only the widespread occurrence but also the common characteristics of abductions, one of the earliest works being Abducted!: Confrontations with beings from outer space (A Berkley Medallion Book) by Mrs. Coral and Mr. Jim Lorenzen who founded and managed the A.P.R.O. investigation, analysis, etc. organisation, published in 1977.

Mr. Dolan also introduces the (possibly related) animal mutilation phenomenon, that was the subject of a 1980 television documentary, "A Strange Harvest", by Ms. Linda Moulton Howe (that may be available to view online, or to purchase on videotape or DVD), who also wrote the Foreword to this book.

Mr. Dolan discusses how alien aerospace craft were observed in the time-frame of significant political developments in countries such as Iran. While alien craft disguised as human-made airships were reported prior to and during the First World War of 1914 - 18, a major alien effort with some type of clear purpose was only readily apparent when the "ghost rockets", alien craft that simulated advanced versions of Nazi German cruise missiles flew over and sometimes seemed to crash in Scandinavia in 1946.

The aliens' intention seems to have been to make people in neutral countries or the West believe the "ghost rockets" were human-made cruise missiles launched by the Soviet Union (Russia). They were possibly trying to provoke a reaction from or provide some type of warning to neutral or western nations, undertake some kind of psychological or sociological experiment, etc. The ghost rockets were discussed Mr. Dolan's earlier book: UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973 published in 2002.

The UFOs observed much later over Belgium (where NATO is based) as the Soviet Union collapsed may have had a similar purpose, and are also discussed by Mr. Dolan in The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991 (UFOs and the National Security State).

One of the most important books ever written in the field was completed early in the 1973 - 1991 time-frame: Unconventional Flying Objects: A Scientific Analysis by Paul R. Hill, a senior NASA aerospace scientist and engineer who relied in part on reports of alien craft, aliens, and their activities during the 1970s. Professor Hill completed this book in 1975, but it wasn't published until 1995.

During the time-frame covered by Mr. Dolan there was increasing criticism from within and without the field of the "Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH)" that as early as the late 19th or early 20th centuries had proposed that the unfamiliar craft and their users that had been observed or encountered, had originated from other worlds. We can speculate now that this criticism arose at least in part because, although many astronomers thought that worlds orbiting other stars must exist, none had yet been discovered. Also, there seemed to be too great a volume and variety of reports of alien craft and of aliens or their surrogates, considering the obstacles to travelling between different star systems that had been detailed by some influential scientists and authors, for example: Extraterrestrial Civilizations by Professor Dr. Isaac Asimov, published in 1979.

However, the relatively recent, widespread use of a large variety of uncrewed, remotely-controlled or even partly-autonomous air vehicles, first by the military services and later by other organisations suggests that many of the reports of multiple, smaller craft exiting from or returning to larger craft were correct, and that these were in fact alien, automated or remotely controlled craft. If this is so, then this can help explain the large volume and wide variety of alien craft that have been observed or encountered.

Towards the end of the time period covered by Mr. Dolan the public Internet began to develop that would ultimately make many reports, analyses and books available online. The number of potential readers has expanded from often less than 2,000 subscribers globally, to the regular, printed publications containing the latest reports and analyses for a respected, major investigations and analysis group, to perhaps 2 billion today.

Mr. Dolan notes that even a major investigation and analysis group could have as few as 1,500 subscribers to its regular publication, and that sometimes publication ceased entirely. My own reading has confirmed that Mrs. Coral and Mr. Jim Lorenzen of A.P.R.O. reported that the number of subscribers to their regular printed paper magazine decreased from 4,000 in 1967 to 1,500 a few years later, although their subscriber base eventually increased to 3,500 by about 1975: Encounters with UFO occupants (A Berkley medallion book) by Mrs. Coral and Mr. Jim Lorenzen, published in 1976. The United Kingdom-based Flying Saucer Review reported having only 1,750 regular subscribers and 1,250 subscribers for its separate FSR Case Histories in the early 1970s, the decade when its published output reached its greatest level: "Flying Saucer Review, March - April 1972, Vol. 18, No. 2."

As in other fields of study the concept of "citizen science" undertaken online by up to hundreds of millions of people, could be a powerful tool for increasing our knowledge and making desperately-needed breakthroughs in science and technology in areas such as marine, aircraft, and aerospace craft propulsion, and energy generation.

Mr. Dolan's book also sets the stage for possibly the most significant development of all, the discovery of large numbers of worlds around other stars - the exoplanets - beginning in 1995, that revolutionised astronomy and by the second decade of the 21st century led to astronomers predicting that billions of habitable worlds almost certainly existed just in our galaxy, thus providing key support for the ETH.

The absence of succession planning which seems to have directly led to the closure of at least one of the most important private sector investigative organisations, the Lorenzens' A.P.R.O. is discussed by Mr. Dolan. His extensive coverage of the role of the security and military services highlights just how difficult it might have been to select and appoint successors who were not in some way connected with them, and whose identities, history, and activities are so thoroughly described by Mr. Dolan in this important book.

It is fascinating to think about how future historians, researchers, investigators and analysts, decades or perhaps a century from now, will rely on Mr. Dolan's work, and how it will be compared and contrasted with what has already happened, including in what is still our future, as the political elites, and security and military services of new major world powers such as China and India respond to the challenge posed by our alien visitors or residents, their activities, and their advanced technologies.

This review is based on a paperback copy of the book, published in 2009.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful for the serious student but seriously flawed, 6 Feb 2012
This review is from: UFOs and the National Security State: The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991: 2 (Paperback)
For the serious scholar of the UFO phenomena Dolan's work is a useful overview of the development of ideas within ufology. Unfortunately the case argued includes aspects that can at best be described as unsubstantiated and deeply implausible. Dolan appears to argue that a global conspiracy operating outside of government oversight has been underway for many decades and that this group have reverse engineered extraterrestrial UFOs and have been flying them since at least 1980!

It is this sort of seriously flawed thinking that enables the critics of ufology to easily maintain the sense of ridicule and derision that is so often heaped upon the subject. Whilst Black projects are a matter of historical fact and no doubt current reality they operate within national (note national) security agencies. Whilst there are some possible hints within theoretical physics of the modus operandi of the UFO (see in particular the work of Paul R Hill and more recently Professor H E Puthoff and Dr. Eric W Davis etc) these are immature theories and any practical application remains very distant. Whilst the existence of what in today's terminology would be an unacknowledged special access programme to study UFOs within the the US governement is really a matter of historical record (c.f. the Smith Memo, Dr Robert Sarbacher's statements on the same topic and the reference in Ruppelt, 1956, to the study group), there is no substantiated evidence to suggest this evolved in the manner suggested by Dolan or achieved anything like the degree of success claimed.

As noted above, however, this work provides a useful review of the evolution of various memes within the subject and as such is worth perservering with.
