Nat Geo just ran one of its new UFO shows, The Truth Behind
UFOs: Popped. (The other one, Chasing UFOs, which is getting
almost all of the publicity, airs tomorrow evening on the

Tonight's show was one of the most blatant exercises in anti-UFO
propaganda that I have ever seen. Actually, it's almost
identical to previous 'documentaries' offered by Nat Geo, which
is why Bob Salas, Charles Halt and I have declined to
participate in anything the network produces, despite being
asked to do so by various people on several occasions over the
last year.

If Nat Geo's mission is not covertly directed by the folks at
CIA headquarters, the network is certainly making the spooks
very happy. Those of you who have not read journalist Terry
Hansen's out-of-print book, The Missing Times: News Media
Complicity in the UFO Cover-up, you need to!

While Nat Geo is not a news network per se, the agency has used
entertainment organizations over the years, domestically and
internationally, to serve its ends. Some of that subterfuge was
exposed in the U.S. Senate's 1975 Church Committee hearings,
some by Carl Bernstein (of Watergate fame) and others. I have
been promoting Hansen's book for a decade. It is excellent and
should have received far more attention than it did after
publication in 2000.

In short, the CIA's anti-UFO campaign, first recommended in
their now-declassified 1953 Robertson Panel report, is
undoubtedly alive and well. Proving Nat Geo's complicity is
another matter. Perhaps Hansen will get back in the saddle and
do a second edition of his book. No pressure, Terry.

Bob and Hank, tonight's UFO program, and others recently or
soon-to-be aired, drive home the point that we need to have
total control over our film, even if it takes awhile longer to
fund and produce. I am now convinced that pitching the project
to any network would be a major mistake. We need to have a
finished film ready for release, with no objectionable content
or conditions being mandated by some outside producer or
executive. I strongly recommend that we have a strategy session
once Bob gets back from vacation.
