HOW THE PENTAGON USES A SECRETIVE PROGRAM TO WAGE PROXY WARS

SMALL TEAMS OF U.S. Special Operations forces are involved in a low-profile proxy war program on a far greater scale than previously known, according to exclusive documents and interviews with more than a dozen current and former government officials.

While The Intercept and other outlets have previously reported on the Pentagon’s use of the secretive 127e authority in multiple African countries, a new document obtained through the Freedom of Information Act offers the first official confirmation that at least 14 127e programs were also active in the greater Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region as recently as 2020. In total, between 2017 and 2020, U.S. commandos conducted at least 23 separate 127e programs across the world.

Separately, Joseph Votel, a retired four-star Army general who headed both Special Operations Command and Central Command, which oversees U.S. military efforts in the Middle East, confirmed the existence of previously unrevealed 127e counterterrorism efforts in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen.

I was the Pentagon’s top UFO scientist – I’ve seen more mystery objects than I can count & we don’t know what they are

ONE of the Pentagon’s chief UFO experts has revealed his identity for the first time – and claims he has seen countless mystery craft.

After writing a book on how the US government should prepare for alien contact, Dr Travis Taylor was offered the job of chief scientist for the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force, the organisation created by Congress to track UFO sightings.

Hiding in plain sight, Dr Taylor has long been known as a top investigator of UFOs and the paranormal at Skinwalker Ranch as well as on other History Channel programs.

However, unbeknownst to all but a handful of people, he was living a double life as the chief scientist for the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force.

A science genius, after leaving university, Alabama-born Dr Taylor wrote a book about how the US government should prepare for alien contact.

‘An Introduction to Planetary Defence’ caught the attention of a high-ranking intelligence official Jay Stratton, who offered him a job.

“Jay Stratton, the director of the UAP Task Force asked me if I would be interested in being the chief scientist,” Taylor told 8 News Now‘s George Knapp.

“And I was like, yeah, absolutely. Of course I would.”

The task force’s main job was to write a report for Congress summing up all the known evidence for UFOs.

They had already created a classified briefing of the most mysterious military encounters, starting with the 2004 Tic Tac incident.

Pentagon Releases Statement Proving ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Were TRUE — Admits To Operating 46 Biolabs In Ukraine

According to a Pentagon statement released on Thursday, the US government has maintained 46 biolabs in Ukraine since the early 2000s as part of a US initiative to rid the globe of “weapons of mass destruction.”

This is the first time the US Department of Defense (DoD) has divulged the exact number of facilities its government has supported in Ukraine, and it vindicates so-called “conspiracy theorists” who have been chastised by the mainstream media and fact-checkers for exposing the presence of US biolabs in Ukraine.

In a document titled ‘Fact Sheet on WMD Threat Reduction Efforts,’ the Pentagon admitted to running the Ukrainian biolabs. The US military, on the other hand, refuted reports that the biolabs are involved in bio-warfare. Russia and China, according to the Pentagon, are “spreading disinformation and creating doubt” about the biolabs and US attempts to eliminate weapons of mass destruction.

As the Pentagon explains it, the US has “worked collaboratively to improve Ukraine’s biological safety, security, and disease surveillance for both human and animal health,” by providing support to “46 peaceful Ukrainian laboratories, health facilities, and disease diagnostic sites over the last two decades.” These programs have focused on “improving public health and agricultural safety measures at the nexus of nonproliferation.”

The work of these US biolabs was “often” conducted in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) and was “consistent with international best practices and norms in publishing research results, partnering with international colleagues and multilateral organizations, and widely distributing their research and public health findings,” the Pentagon insisted.

NASA Now Helping Pentagon Investigation Into UFOs

Reports are surfacing that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will lend a hand as the United States government searches for evidence of UFOs.

Earlier this month, the Department of Defense announced it would form a task force called the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) to investigate UFOs

“It’s going to be some sort of working group that will help support the DoD,” a source “affiliated with the U.S. government and familiar with NASA’s UAP research” told the Daily Mail.

“I suspect it will be a combination of efforts that will include perhaps firsthand eyewitness testimony of NASA employees and astronauts, and then perhaps a review of old archival footage to assess if there are some findings within the NASA archives that can help AOIMSG,” the source added.

The Pentagon’s UFO team has asked for footage from shuttle cameras attached to previous NASA flight missions, the source declared.

Pentagon-Funded Think Tank Simulates War With China On NBC

NBC’s Meet the Press just aired an absolutely freakish segment in which the influential narrative management firm Center for a New American Security (CNAS) ran war games simulating a direct US hot war with China.

CNAS is funded by the Pentagon and by military-industrial complex corporations Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Lockheed Martin, as well as the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office, which as Antiwar’s Dave DeCamp notes is the de facto Taiwanese embassy in the US.

The war game simulates a conflict over Taiwan which we are informed is set in the year 2027, in which China launches strikes on the US military in order to open the way to an invasion of the island. We are not told why there needs to be a specific year inserted into mainstream American consciousness about when we can expect such a conflict, but then we are also not told why NBC is platforming a war machine think tank’s simulation of a military conflict with China at all.

It happens that the Center for a New American Security was the home of the man assigned by the Biden administration to lead the Pentagon task force responsible for re-evaluating the administration’s posture toward China. That man, Ely Ratner, is on record saying that the Trump administration was insufficiently hawkish toward China. Ratner is now the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs in the Biden administration.

It also happens that the Center for a New American Security has openly boasted about the great many of its other “experts and alumni” who have assumed senior leadership positions within the Biden administration.

It also happens that CNAS co-founder Michele Flournoy, who appeared in the Meet the Press war games segment and was at one time a heavy favorite to become Biden’s Pentagon chief, wrote a Foreign Affairs op-ed in 2020 arguing that the US needed to develop “the capability to credibly threaten to sink all of China’s military vessels, submarines, and merchant ships in the South China Sea within 72 hours.”

It also happens that CNAS CEO Richard Fontaine has been featured all over the mass media pushing empire narratives about Russia and China, telling Bloomberg just the other day that the war in Ukraine could serve the empire’s long-term interests against China.

“The war in Ukraine could end up being bad for the pivot in the short-term, but good in the long-term,” Fontaine said. “If Russia emerges from this conflict as a weakened version of itself and Germany makes good on its defense spending pledges, both trends could allow the US to focus more on the Indo-Pacific in the long run.”

EXPOSED: Pentagon conducted deadly biological weapons experiments on allied soldiers in Ukraine and Georgia

In order to “protect its allies against Russia,” the United States performed biological weapons “experiments” on Ukrainian and Georgian soldiers, newly leaked documents show.

Even though both Ukraine and Georgia are considered to be American allies, the Pentagon decided to harm these countries’ soldiers as part of a $2.5 billion Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) biological engagement program, which included research on biological agents, deadly viruses and antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Each type of pathogen was unleashed on local populations in both countries as well, exposing potentially millions of people to deadly infections. (Related: The Pentagon’s secret operations programs in Ukraine date at least as far back as 2005.)

A five-year Pentagon operation in Georgia, code-named GG-21, involved “Arthropod-borne and zoonotic infections among military personnel in Georgia.” The project’s description explains that blood samples were collected from 1,000 military recruits at the time of their registration and physical exam at the Georgian military hospital located in Gori.

US Congress to question Pentagon on UFOs

The US House Intelligence Committee has scheduled a hearing to follow up on some 143 UFO sightings reported between 2004 and 2021, Representative André Carson (D-Indiana) revealed on Tuesday. The hearing, scheduled for next Tuesday, will be held by the Intelligence Committee’s subcommittee on counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and counterproliferation, which Carson chairs.

Since this is an area of high public interest, any undue secrecy can serve as an obstacle to solving the mystery, or it could prevent us from finding solutions to potential vulnerabilities,” Carson told the New York Times. “This hearing is about examining steps that the Pentagon can take to reduce the stigma surrounding reporting by military pilots, and by civilian pilots.

Among those testifying before the subcommittee are Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie and Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray. Both have been involved with further investigating the 143 sightings detailed in a report released last year by the Pentagon’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, an office that has since been replaced by the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group. The new division, led by Moultrie, is supposed to “detect, identify and attribute objects of interest in Special Use Airspace and to assess and mitigate any associated threats to safety of flight and national security.

Congress Thinks The Pentagon Is Not Taking UFO Reports Seriously After Latest Briefings

Lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services Committees are unimpressed with the classified progress reports on UFOs they received in a briefing Monday, according to Politico.

Though the office is not expected to be fully operational until June, members of the committees have said that national security agencies aren’t taking reports of highly advanced aircraft of unknown origins seriously enough, Politico reported.

Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act four months ago, which required the Pentagon to create an Anomaly Surveillance and Resolution Office to thoroughly investigate and analyze UFOs or “unidentified aerial phenomena,” according to the legislation.

The creation of the office was spearheaded by Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who reportedly believes that the “DoD needs to take this issue much more seriously and get in motion,” one of her aides told Politico following the briefing. Her sentiments were mirrored by Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Rubio is reportedly “frustrated” that the office is “not moving fast enough, not doing enough, not sharing enough,” an aide told Politico.

‘Misinformation Fingerprints:’ The Pentagon Awarded ‘Fact-Checking’ Org NewsGuard a $750K Contract Last Year

In yet more evidence of the federal government/Deep State’s vested interest in advancing internet censorship (or, as they call it, tackling “misinformation”), the Department of Defense awarded NewsGuard Technologies a $750,000 contract in September of 2021 for the organization’s “misinformation fingerprints” project.

NewsGuard, which has been the subject of extensive Breitbart News reporting, is an establishment-backed project that aims to “rate” news outlets, policing the internet by telling users which news sources can be trusted and which ones cannot.

According to USASpending.gov, the contract was awarded for NewsGuard’s “misinformation fingerprints” project, which it describes as a “a catalogue of known hoaxes, falsehoods and misinformation narratives that are spreading online.”

It is unclear if hoaxes embraced by the establishment, such as the notion that material found on Hunter Biden’s laptop was “Russian disinformation,” are in NewsGuard’s “misinformation fingerprints” database.

NewsGuard’s own co-founder, Steve Brill, spread that false claim, as did advisory board member and notorious political partisan Michael Hayden.
