Did UFOs Prompt a Secret Agenda?

Published: 3:05 PM 10/24/2014

... only made privy to information on a ”need to know” basis


Earlier I took a close look at a mysterious document known as the Twining Memo, in which four-star General Nathan Twining, head of the United States Air Force Materiel Command, confirmed that saucer-shaped UFOs were, “real and not visionary or fictitious.”

General Twining took the UFO enigma very seriously indeed.

In his memo, he recommended that in future the subject should be assigned, “a priority, security classification and Code Name for a detailed study of this matter to include the preparation of complete sets of all available and pertinent data which will then be made available to the Army, Navy, Atomic Energy Commission, JRDS, the Air Force Scientific Advisory Group, NACA and the RAND and NEPA projects for comments and recommendations, with a preliminary report to be forwarded within 15 days of receipt of the data and a detailed report thereafter every 30 days as the investigation develops.”

Twining spoke of “the lack of physical evidence in the shape of crash-recovered exhibits which would undeniably prove the existence of these objects.”

However, as Twining had effectively been put in charge of UFO studies by the Government and had a very high security clearance, it is highly likely that even if he did know of such crashes he would have been unable to tell the recipient of his memo, General George Schulgen, about them.

The level of the security classification dictated that those involved were only made privy to information on a ”need to know” basis.

If Schulgen had no need to know, he wouldn’t be told.

Intriguingly, Twining made it clear that if UFOs were of “domestic origin” he certainly wasn’t aware of it.

It would have been superfluous in the extreme to order further study of UFOs if Twining knew that they were simply top-secret American aircraft, as the sceptics sometimes claim.

There isn’t a shred of evidence that the US Air force or any other organisation, military or civilian, were testing experimental aircraft that could perform the mind-boggling aerial manoeuvres that the UFOs were capable of.

Why did Twining write his memo just at that time – September 1947?

In July of that same year, the National Security Act was passed, bringing into existence the CIA, the National Military Establishment, the National Security Council and, shortly afterward, the Department of Defense. The major elements of the act were activated in September of that year.

Of course, part of the motivation for the passing of the Act had been World War II. However, some think that there may have been another, more secret agenda at work.

July 1947 was also the time when a UFO was said to have crashed at Roswell in New Mexico – just weeks before the National Security Act was passed – and it is here where General Nathan Twining re-enters the picture.

On Monday, July 7, Twining suddenly made an unscheduled visit to Alamogordo Army Air Field, New Mexico.

On July 8, the very day after Twining travelled to Alamogordo, the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) Public Information Officer, Walter Haut, authorised a press release which stated that members of Roswell Field’s 509th Operations Group had recovered a “flying disc”, which had crashed near Roswell.

Roswell is only a little over 100 miles from Alamogordo, which is very unlikely to be coincidental.

Twining had originally been scheduled to attend a meeting with executives of Boeing at that time, but hurriedly cancelled.

On July 17, Twining wrote to a senior executive and apologised for not attending the meeting, “due to a very important, sudden matter that developed here.”

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to guess what that may have been.

Then, as soon as the National Security Act came into force, Twining sent his memo to General Schulgen expressing his concern about UFOs.

Twining knew more about UFOs than most people did back then – and more than most of us know now.
