Richard Dolan is a historian who specialized in the period of the cold war and the development of the national security state in the United States. One day in a bookshop he picked up a book on UFOs. Many of the names cited were familiar to him from his research. He began to investigate the topic of UFOs and the national security state, plowing through US government documents. His research convinced him that there was something there, something that is so disturbing to governments that jet fighters are sent up to chase them. Rich joins the editors of Signs of the Times for a discussion of UFOs, conspiracies, and why some people just can't see what is in front of their faces.

A city resident could not believe his eyes when he looked into the night sky. Echo
reader Paul de Garis spotted something unusual when he stepped out into his garden to have a cigarette, as his pregnant wife remained inside.

Just as he lit up, a bright orange light came over head.
He said: "I think I saw a UFO - or at least something quite strange - in Exeter on Tuesday at around 10.45pm."
Now, Mr de Garis has contacted the Echo
to see if anyone else saw the mysterious object.
The night skies over Manitoba were apparently busier than usual last month.
Nearly triple the average number of UFO sightings were reported, according to Chris Rutkowski, research coordinator for Ufology Research of Manitoba, a Winnipeg-based independent centre that investigates and researches Canadian UFO sightings.
"It's significantly above what we normally get," said Rutkowski, adding 11 sightings in Manitoba were submitted in September.
The monthly average is about three or four, he said.
Ufology Research is concerned that most of the sightings were not reported to investigators in Manitoba but were instead submitted to websites around the globe.

Are we all alone in the universe? Nick Pope, former head of the government's UFO investigations, isn't so sure. He talks to Raf Sanchez about the great 'unexplained'.
To conspiracy theorists, Nick Pope is the right man with the wrong answer. The former head of Britain's UFO Project has had years of unparalleled access and resources to investigate the significance of unexplained visitors to Britain's airspace. Since leaving the MoD in 2006 he has taken up a high profile career as a writer, lecturer and consultant. He seemed to be a man preparing to impart revelation. If anyone should be able to confirm that the government knows of the existence of extraterrestrial life, it should, in theory, be Pope.
Except that he won't. To the rabid frustration of many Ufologists (the recent term coined to describe those who study UFO sightings) Pope continues to deny that the government he served for over 20 years has information confirming the existence of aliens and just isn't sharing it. Clips of interviews on the internet show the clean cut former civil servant interrogated by enthusiasts already sure of the answer they want and left bitter and accusatory when they don't get it.
The switch has been thrown on a telescope specifically designed to seek out alien life.
Funded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen the finished array will have 350 6m antennas and will be one of the world's largest.
The Allen Telescope Array (ATA) will be able to sweep more than one million star systems for radio signals generated by intelligent beings.
Its creators hope it will help spot definite signs of alien life by 2025.
This article is a perfect example of the amazing ability of the mainstream press to completely ignore the screamingly obvious - that "definite signs of alien life" have been available and recorded in official government and military documents the world over for many decades.
Read Richard Dolan's book UFO's and the National Security State
for the details.

California - Mysterious shaking rattled the Central Coast late Wednesday morning.
It happened around 11:00 and was felt all the way from Santa Maria to Morro Bay.
Some said it felt like a small earthquake. Others thought it may be another sonic boom.
Caltech and seismic experts at UC Santa Barbara says there was no earthquake in the region during that time frame, except for a couple small ones in the Paso Robles area.
Comment: It seems that they are trying very hard to write these 'booms' off to military jets which are not supposed to create sonic booms over inhabited areas.

She said: "I was concentrating on the road so I didn't notice anything strange but my son asked me what the lights were and we pulled over to have a look."
She described "rows of large yellow lights suspended in the air, completely silent". She added: "They then all moved off very quickly in different directions, it lasted for about four minutes, and lots of people were getting out of their cars to take a look."
