Former Defense Officer: ‘I Know Who Will Witness the Existence of Recovered Alien Technology’
Christopher Mellon, a former Defense for Intelligence officer under the Clinton and Bush administrations, is probably the important person U̳F̳O̳ researchers should keep an eye on. He lobbied Congress for the recent U̳F̳O̳ hearing to review the unidentified objects sighted by the military. Additionally, he claims to know the names of individuals who will witness the existence of recovered a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ technology or are considering doing so.
Mr. Mellon first spoke of his experience within government with regards to U̳F̳O̳s in 2016. In an interview with Leslie Kean published on the now closed HuffPost Contributor Forum, Mellon stated:
“I very much doubt that the DoD or any other government agency is hiding information about U̳F̳O̳s. I participated in a comprehensive review of the DoD\’s black programs and spent more than a decade overseeing the national foreign intelligence program, an almost entirely separate world of secrecy. I visited A̳r̳e̳a̳ 51 and other military, intelligence and research facilities.
During all these years, I never detected the slightest hint of government interest or involvement in U̳F̳O̳s. …While some new, previously forgotten documents may appear (bureaucracy is never perfect), I don\’t believe they would solve the U̳F̳O̳ issue or provide significant new insights. I can think of a long U̳F̳O̳ report that is classified only because of concerns about sources and methods. Indeed, it has identified a convincing conventional explanation for the pilot sightings in this particular case.
There are many confidential documents related to activities at A̳r̳e̳a̳ 51 where high security is required. But this is all legitimate stuff that the American people would support. They have nothing to do with U̳F̳O̳s, as far as I know.”
However, in a March 2022 opinion piece published by “The Hill,” Mellon said, “I am addressing the UAP topic as a member of two serious groups of scientific researchers, the Galileo Project and the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU). ). Both U̳F̳O̳ research organizations have brought together capable groups of scientists who seek to advance our collective understanding of U̳F̳O̳ anomalies. Those efforts now appear to be hampered by new guidance that moves the classification criteria simply because some US government officials dislike oversight and are uncomfortable sharing information.”
In a recent interview with La Vangaurdia, a newspaper in Spain, Mellon stated:
“For the first time, we\’re really starting to collect all the data and really study it. We have many reports that indicate that there has been some contact and some communication. We had incidents where these objects were flying over the capital of the United States and this happened in other countries. We\’ve had situations where these things have dropped and hundreds of people have seen them. There may have been some contact and interaction.
From a national security standpoint, it seems to be very interested in our military capabilities, we are seeing a lot of activity around nuclear weapons production and processing facilities. For example, around some of our carrier strike groups and military assets. So who is this and why are they so active there, why are they so interested, that\’s just something we need to know and understand to make sure there\’s nothing we need to worry about.”
Mr. Mellon was featured in the 2020 U̳F̳O̳ documentary “The Phenomenon” directed by former U̳F̳O̳ enthusiast James Fox. In the documentary, Mellon noted that he was the source who provided the three P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳ U̳F̳O̳ videos that made the New York Times\’ “Sunday front page advertisement” on December 17, 2017: “Bright auras and \’black money\'” . In the documentary, Mellon claims that he met an individual he identifies in the parking lot of the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳ and received a package containing three videos recorded by US Navy pilots between 2004 and 2015.
Mr. Mellon shared the possibility of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ life in the universe and discussed the information revealed by several renowned scientists in his latest article in The Debrief titled: “THE FERMI PARADOX PARADOX”.
He writes: “It is also conceivable that more advanced c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳s̳ have achieved faster-than-light travel, by exploring wormholes, \’interdimensional travel\’, or by some other means we have not yet conceived. Other c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳s̳ may also have developed the ability to prolong biological life indefinitely. If nothing else, it\’s easy to imagine unmanned but highly intelligent probes, perhaps even self-replicating probes, gradually spreading across the galaxy. If that sounds fanciful, remember that there are already probes at work in interstellar space.”
He mentioned a 1950 FBI memo that he believes to be one of the most extraordinary UAP events in American history. He stated: “When in March 1950, dozens of residents of nearby Farmington, New Mexico, reported hundreds of silver metallic disks flying in formation over their town in broad daylight.
In other words, hundreds of U̳F̳O̳s were being observed by all sorts of personnel in the vicinity of Los Alamos just as Dr. Fermi was expressing bewilderment at the perceived absence of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ life. The UAP evidence included numerous reports from trained observers, pilots, scientists and security personnel, as well as photographs and even radar tracks and theodolite measurements.”
There are historic whistleblower provisions in the DoD Intelligence and Authorization Bills pending in Congress. These provisions have broad bipartisan and bicameral support and will almost certainly be enacted by the end of the year. Once enacted, they will allow Congress to learn the truth of long-standing claims that the US government is in possession of recovered a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ technology.
Simultaneously, pending legislation will require a General Accounting Office review of classified UAP information dating back to the end of World War II. “I am already aware of several individuals who claim they will witness the existence of recovered a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ technology or are considering doing so,” Mellon said.
