More claims released to public on government contact with extraterrestrials
by Steve Hammons Posted: August 24, 2006
In rapid-fire succession, a second information release in four days was made public today about U.S. Government activities involving extraterrestrials.
The information was again sent through a prominent e-mail stream group and posted verbatim on a well-known Web site, serpo.org.
Today, the information allegedly came from sources connected to the British intelligence organization MI6. It focuses on the experiences of those allegedly directly connected with projects in the decades following contact with extraterrestrial visitors following events near Roswell, New Mexico in the late 1940s.
The claims released today also focus on the rumors, stories and claims that a 12-person U.S. military team was sent to the home planet of visiting extraterrestrials during the 1960s and '70s.
The planned 10-year stay as part of an exchange program and was reportedly called Project CRYSTAL KNIGHT, with the later code name Project SERPO after the team returned home.
On Monday, Aug. 21, the moderator of the e-mail stream presented information said to be from sources alleged to be associated with the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). This release included wide-ranging topics on U.S. Government programs regarding extraterrestrial visitors and their technology.
Regarding today’s information, the e-mail stream moderator stated that if he can determine that the information is a hoax, we will announce this publicly. The Web site coordinator of serpo.org also announced that he will remove this posting on his Web site if it is confirmed to be a fabrication.
One of the e-mail stream moderator’s alleged DIA sources has indicated he suspects the source is not an MI6-connected person at all. He wrote to the moderator, “What's new in this? Someone just took information from the other postings we did together and made this up. I don't see anything new. I doubt this came from British intelligence. I think someone just fabricated this.”
However, people who have followed this fascinating story may be interested in the overview and details released today to decide for themselves. To some, it seems to pull together parts of the story in a helpful way.
ANOTHER VIEW OF PROJECT CRYSTAL KNIGHT
(Note: Some bracketed information is that of the author of this article and some is apparently that of the e-mail moderator and/or the confidential source.)
The source introduced the information to the e-mail stream moderator as follows: “Please release this information verbatim to your huge list. Thank you. It comes indirectly from British Intelligence (MI6), but it IS an accurate account of one person's experience with ‘Project CRYSTAL KNIGHT.’”
He continued, “[Redacted] became involved in ‘Project CRYSTAL KNIGHT’ in the summer of 1958. [Redacted] was assigned to Holloman AFB when he was briefed into a program that involved communication with an Extraterrestrial Race. [Redacted] had known about Roswell as part of an earlier briefing in 1952.“
“During the summer of 1958, [redacted] was called to Sandia Base (Kirtland AFB) for a top secret meeting. There were command officials present. [General] Charles Cabell, USAF was in charge of a group that would eventually control ‘Project CRYSTAL KNIGHT.’"
“A presentation was given on an extraordinary planned event involving contact with an Extraterrestrial Intelligence located on another planet."
This source goes on in some detail about a U.S. Air Force unit, other elements of the military and civilian assets assigned to handle some of the technological aspects of communicating with these visitors through deep space using devices reportedly found in a crashed spacecraft near Roswell, New Mexico.
“The 2044th Communication Squadron (AF) was responsible...along with personnel from U.S. Army Communications Service and a selected number of civilians from Los Alamos National Laboratory.“
“The live alien, which [who] was captured near Roswell, provided the technical information to function [properly operate] the communication system.”
“Three members of the 2044th were trained in the technical means to work the ET system. The system was complicated and required a special power system that was found inside the crashed alien spacecraft. Once the 2044th technicians learned the system, the communication was ready to function.”
The source explains that the difficulties went beyond the technology involved. The visitors’ language was quite different and required linguistic experts to attempt to understand it.
“However, the biggest problem was understanding the language of the aliens. The communication system worked on the alien language, which only one or two USAF officers, who worked with the alien, knew.”
“From 1952 until 1958, language specialists (both U.S. Army and Air Force) worked on translating the written language.”
Apparently, according to this source and others, U.S. personnel working on this project were able to adequately learn enough of the alien language so that messages coming through the visitors’ communication device could be somewhat understood.
“Finally, after some effort by several smart people, we were able to translate the language, but only about 70 percent of each message. That gave us enough information to understand what the aliens were sending. The aliens wanted to return to Earth and pick up their comrades [alive and deceased]. Our mission was to plan the event and provide all of the necessary logistics to pull this off.”
The communication gap continued to be an obstacle, according to this source. U.S. personnel were able to educate the visitors about the English language adequately so that more effective communication was possible.
“Somewhere along the way, one of the AF communications specialists decided to send an English message to the aliens. Now this would be difficult since the alien communication system did not have English letters. But our AF ingenuity came into play.”
“Utilizing a newly created classified military communication system (TAC-STAR), we were able to somehow (never understood how) wire in the keyboard of a TAC-STAR. This would enable us to type English letters into the alien communication system. It took some time and effort but it worked.”
“We sent messages in English, along with our alphabet and numbering system. Our numbering system was similar to that of the aliens, and although our number [numerical] designations were different, we were able to use lines to indicate the corresponding number.”
<“After several exchanges of messages, the aliens got it before we got theirs. It was obvious to us that we were dealing with a highly advanced civilization. From about June 1960 on, we began receiving messages in English from the aliens. They did not send complete sentences, but they sent enough for us to understand the meaning of the message.”
“From that point on, we communicated only in English except for numbers. We grasped their numbering system pretty quickly and used their numbering system since we did not wish to provide them with wrong [incorrect] landing coordinates.”
“We eventually provided them with the latitude and longitude [coordinates]. We also provided them with the military coordinate system used by our pilots back in the early days.”
