“We live in an odd universe,” Neil Armstrong once wrote, “with brilliant inventions undiscovered and breakthroughs open to anyone who can strip one of the truth’s defensive layers.”
Now fast forward to today, and many people are conscious that not everything that happens behind the scenes is made public. This is why the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was enacted; it is a federal statute that provides for the full or partial dissemination of previously unreleased information and data under the jurisdiction of the US government.
There are also many barriers to true disclosure, one of which being the use of the term “national security” to keep information confidential and unavailable to the media. With the revelations of Wikileaks and Edward Snowden, this has become much more apparent, but the dilemma is even broader.
Does you know that the United States government classifies about 500 million pages of records a year? This is a whole different subject, and if you’re interested in learning more about it, read our article about the “Black Budget.”
What NASA astronauts had to say about the Moon
Several NASA employees have made some startling comments about the Moon. One of these individuals is George Leonard, a NASA scientist and photo researcher who received a number of official NASA images of the Moon, much of which he revealed in his book “Somebody Else Is On The Moon.”
About the fact that the images are tiny and the resolution isn’t up to today’s expectations, they display descriptions of massive original prints. Though Leonard released the photos’ identification code numbers to prove their authenticity, we can’t be certain they were genuine, and their low quality just adds to the confusion.
His assertions about what was discovered on the Moon, as well as his confirmed NASA credentials, are much more convincing than these images.
Leonard was far from the only one with a credible history seeking to inform the public of the facts about the Moon and the pictures captured during the Apollo missions.
“Ladies and gentlemen, my country, NASA, which stood for Never A Straight Answer to those of us in the United States, continued to delete 40 rolls of film from the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, and the walking guys here and there. For Christ’s sake, they deleted 40 rolls of film from those cases.
Now we’re talking about tens of thousands of individual frames that the so-called officials decided you didn’t have a right to see. They were “disruptive,” “socially inappropriate,” and “politically unacceptable,” to say the least. I’ve been enraged. I’m a former Command Sergeant Major from the United States Army. “Patience was never one of my strong suits.”
Bob Dean, who was presenting at a conference in Europe, said the quote above. Bob is a former US Army Command Sargent Major who has worked as an intelligence analyst at NATO’s Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE).
Where it comes to the UFO phenomenon, thousands of records have been made public, as well as hundreds of reliable witness testimonies.
It’s also worth noting that the Russian government recently called for an international inquiry into the United States’ moon landings, citing the loss of video clips from the 1969 landing. They’re also referring to the (roughly) 400 kilograms of lunar rock collected between 1969 and 1972 during various flights.
Leonard said that NASA was aware of extraterrestrial activities on the Moon and tried to conceal it. He isn’t the only one who has made such a claim.
“Read the stories, learn the legends, and begin to comprehend what has been going on, for there is no question that we are being visited….” The world in which we exist is far more wondrous, thrilling, dynamic, and far-reaching than we have ever been able to comprehend. Mankind has long pondered whether or not we are the only ones in the world. But it is only during our time that we have real proofs. No, we’re not on our own.” -NASA astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, ScD. (6th man to walk on the moon).
Leonard isn’t the only NASA scientist who has expressed any unusual opinions about the Moon. Dr. John Brandenburg, a plasma physicist, recently said the same thing. He was the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Moon Mission, a joint space initiative between NASA and the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO). In 1994, the spacecraft found water at the Moon’s poles.
