Hi Terry, Everyone!

An interesting and important comment that was posted in response
to this story about ET contact (attached below) should help us
in correctly determining if this "is a hoax, leg pull or the
real McCoy".

Have we made contact with ETs in recent times? Yes, according to
information revealed by government insiders and confirmed by
researchers who have uncovered government files establishing
that such contacts have taken place. One example of such
contacts with ETs in orbit above the Earth in 1954 resulted is
the creation of a secret UFO landing site that same year at a
Canadian Forces Base/Research Facility in Alberta where the ETs
could land and take-off safely and at will without the risk of
being shot down by our planes as happened over Washington, D.C.
in 1952...

As much as I wish that this was actual evidence of
extraterrestrial contact, it's not. As has been said already,
it's just an exercise made up for the readers of the NSA
Technical Journal to hone their cryptography skills. Campaigne
even _calls_ it an 'exercise' in the article's second-to-last

All the stuff about how this was a 'super secret project report'
is just a story made up by the author of this article, or
whoever his source was. First of all, to say "no other reports"
about this so-called project were released is completely false.
The previous article, "Extraterrestrial Intelligence", is right
there on the same NSA website.

From: http://tinyurl.com/649hp5a

"In the most recent issue of the NSA Technical Journal- Vol. XI,
No. 1, Mr. Lambros D. Callimahos discussed certain aspects of
extraterrestrial intelligence and included several messages *to
test the reader's ingenuity*. In the following pages, Dr. H. H.
Campaigne offers additional communications from outer space."
(Emphasis mine.)

Sure, it's not stated outright, but it's pretty obvious from
the context that these "additional communications" are just more
made-up puzzles for readers to try their hand at solving. If
there's still any doubt, just look at Callimahos's article,
which is also on the NSA website:

[.pdf file]


Callimahos talks about how it is indeed possible that we COULD
someday receive transmissions from an alien civilization, what
we should probably expect, and how best to approach the problem
of understanding them. At one point Callimahos gives
hypothetical examples of "what we might expect of an initial
communication from outer space", showing how with relatively
little information transmitted to us, aliens could convey the
basic concepts needed to learn their language and actually
communicate complex matters with us.

Campaigne's article is simply another example of what an alien
transmission might be, as a puzzle for cryptographers to play
with. The followup 'Key to the Extraterrestrial Messages' is
essentially a bunch of clues, for readers who got stumped. I
would be as excited as anyone if genuine proof of alien contact
was found, but I can't just stand by and let fellow enthusiasts
get misled by something which I know to be fake.
