Retired Colonel Charles Halt, the most senior former US servicemen to go public about UFOs and the Rendlesham case. The man, who says he was a third-class petty officer at the Naval Telecommunications Center within NAS Moffett Field from February 1986 to October 1989, also claims he can shed light on the mysterious mass-UFO sighting involving military personal in 1980.
He has yet to be named, but a former British MoD UFO investigator confirmed to us the man is a genuine source, creatinga flurry of excitement within the UFO disclosure community.
Nick Pope, who was charged by the MoD with investigating baffling UK UFO cases, including the Rendlesham incident, said: “I’ve actually had some personal communication with this individual, and have no doubts about his background. “It’s clear from the language he uses and the information he has that he’s a genuine insider.” But Mr Pope stopped short of encouraging the whistleblower to come outinto the open.
He added: “While my own secrecy oath means I can’t encourage anyone to divulge classified information without proper authority, I’m obviously very interested in his story. “As I conducted the MoD’s cold case review of the Rendlesham Forest incident I’m particularly keen to hear about anything that would shed new light on this case.”
The Rendlesham legend has been dubbed Britain’s Roswell after the mystery UFO crash said to have happened outside the town in New Mexico, USA, in July 1947. The UK alien sighting happened when three US officers based at RAF Bentwaters claimed a “triangular shaped craft” landed in neighbouring woods in the early hours of December 26 1980. It has led to several reported sightings on the night by the public and several books and conspiracies.
The man, who has not been publicly named, is claiming the US National Security Agency (NSA) and the UK Government had a going project looking at UFO sightings, including Rendlesham in the 1980s. He has filed a report to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) – the world’s biggest official alien investigation organisation based in the US, saying he wants to help reach “disclosure”. The disclosure movement among the UFO fraternity, is calling for all world Governments to make public all their top secret files on UFO and flying saucer visitations. In the report filed on Saturday he said: “I’m not reporting a UFO sighting rather a UFO related experience. “
I have copies of my security clearances. “I personally handled, viewed and delivered thousands of documents involving UFO/ET Projects. “My secrecy agreement with the US Government expired in October 2014. “At this point in my life I would like to share my knowledge in hopes that someone will be able to use it effectively towards disclosure.” He said he was given TS SBI/ESI NATO/SIOP Compartmental Security Clearance, which is Top Secret clearance for working in Special Background Investigation, Single Integrated Operation Plan, Exceptionally Sensitive Information and with NATO. He added: “In addition we had a GS11 employee who was transferred from a Joint US/UK communication station north of London after working at that site for a dozen years. “He said it was an National Security Agency (NSA)/UK facility tasked with tracking UFO including Rendalsham Forest Incident. “He said that UFO/ET were real and that hopefully disclosure would happen in my lifetime since he was in his early 60s at the time.”
In the report he said: “I was required to deliver TS Code word designation COSMIC to SRI, ESL/SYLVANIA, LOCKHEED SKUNKWORKS, TRW, RATHEON, BERKELEY LABS, LAWRENCE LIVERMORE LABS, and other think tanks throughout Silicon valley.” Express.co.uk has contacted MUFON to ask if it is taking his claims seriously or has contacted him to view his credentials, and awaits a response. In the meantime, there is no way of knowing if his claims are genuine. However, research shows that at the time in question, Moffett Field was a naval air base, but is now a MFA as a restricted federal airfield, run by NASA.* The Lockheed Martin Skunkworks is a global security and aerospace company based in Bethesda, Maryland .
