Even within the much-maligned and widely misunderstood field of “UFOlogy,” Steven Greer is a divisive figure.
Greer is not easing off. As he puts it, Unacknowledged — the book and the film, the latter directed by first-time documentarian Michael Mazzola — “really take people from zero to 100 quickly.”
The Unacknowledged project basically lays all the cards on the table this former emergency-room physician from Charlotte, N.C., has accumulated during his 24 years advocating for official, institutional “disclosure” of what government, military and the intelligence community really know about unidentified flying objects at the helm of the Disclosure Project.
Unacknowledged alleges that a military-industrialist cabal of semi-public/semi-private interests has had access to technology reverse-engineered from crashed UFOs for more than half a century that would render all known terrestrial sources of power and propulsion obsolete, and yet has withheld it from the public due to its defence value and the potential damage its unveiling would pose to the “global macroeconomic order.”
“Well, that’s the problem,” says Greer.
“One of the reasons I’m doing what I’m doing is that there are people within the intelligence community who don’t know how to get themselves out of that hole and yet they’re very supportive of disclosure, and they’ve told me this.
“If you read between the lines of what I just said, what I’m saying to you — and you’re welcome to print this — is that there are some very powerful interests who realize that they are stuck in this black hole and they don’t know how to get out of it because it would create a scandal thousands of times worse than Watergate or Russia-gate or whatever the latest scandal is that the Washington Post and the New York Times and perhaps your paper are obsessing on.”
That’s not always easy. As Greer notes: “There’s so much nonsensical information out there on the subject that it self-ridicules.”
Still, UFO lore is rife with much documentary evidence, and remaining ignorant, as Greer sees it, will only allow those in the know to use whatever hidden knowledge they might have for further hidden purposes. And he’s dead serious about false UFO events being potentially used to manipulate the public.
“So the question becomes how easy is it for the intelligence community using their mouthpieces in the media . . . to put out a scenario that would scare the hell out of people so that people would give up their liberties and their finances and what have you — their blood and treasure — to stampede into the next big thing, which has been planned for 60 years and that is a conflict between humans and other planetary societies.
“Now, it’s completely nonsensical. It’s as nonsensical as going into Iraq was, but we did go into Iraq and there are hundreds of thousands of people dead as a result and now Syria has blown apart. So there are consequences to this . . .
“The majority of people already believe there is intelligent life out there and the last poll I saw said that 43 per cent of Americans think we’re currently being visited. More than half the public all over the world believes that UFOs are real and that governments are hiding something. So that battle has been won, but the larger argument has to still be engaged.
“And that’s why we made this film, in part, to expose what the secret agenda has been and the disinformation campaigns.”
