UFO sightings have picked
up again in the US and continue in Norway. UFOs were observed
in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois,
Nebraska, Kansas, Arkansas, Colorado, Singapore, and Norway. Crop
Circles were reported in Canada and the Netherlands.
US AND BRITAIN will likely launch attacks within Afghanistan in the
next several days. Small teams of elite US forces, together with
British commandos, have begun operating on the ground around key targets
inside Afghanistan in the first phase of the US led military offensive.
Specialized military reconnaissance units are focusing on primary targets
for potential air and ground attacks, notably hideouts of the terrorist
organization led by Osama bin Laden and vulnerable bases of Afghanistan's
ruling Taliban militia. These forces are also attempting to obtain
Afghan allies who hate the Taliban. Afghanistan is involved in
a civil war with the Taliban controlling most of the country and the
Northern Alliance holding about 10 percent of the country in the Northeast.
The Northern Alliance will benefit from an airborne resupply route from
Dushanbe, Tajikistan, to Bagram Air Base. It is likely we are
already using some of their facilities. Uzbekistan and Tajikistan
were once part of the Soviet Union, and with prodding from Russia, may
offer bases for US forces. These countries operate Russian-built,
twin-engine An-24s and An-32s transports fly in supplies and ammunition
at night to the Northern Alliance. Surprisingly, India was the
first country to offer the US air bases to fight the Taliban and also
to send in supplies to support the Northern Alliance. Pakistan
is unlikely to allow bombing attacks from its territory, but will probably
allow aerial tankers and cargo aircraft to operate from there.
Attacks will likely be launched from aircraft carriers at sea.
President George W. Bush said in a White House meeting with King Abdullah
II of Jordan, "He and his military planners had studied the lessons
learned by Russia in its losing struggle against Afghan rebels in the
1980s." US Special Forces have begun carrying out scouting
missions to pave the way for air strikes followed by landings by helicopter-borne
troops." These operations involve small teams of four to
12 men, that are secretly helicopter into Afghan territory. They
hide during daylight and then use night vision equipment to pinpoint
command posts, supply depots, training headquarters and other targets
for US military strikes. At least 2,000 members of the US Special
Forces, including the 75th Ranger Regiment, their command unit, have
deployed during the last week in bases close to Afghan borders in Pakistan,
Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. Britain reportedly has its 250-man
Special Air Service on secret missions in northern Afghanistan.
POSSIBLE BOMBING OF WORLD TRADE CENTER?
Lee Robertson, the project structural engineer who helped design the
World Trade Center claims the twin towers were designed to take
the impact of a four engine 707 commercial jet aircraft. At 8:45
AM, Flight 11, a 767 aircraft crashed into the center of the North Tower
exploding its jet fuel. The fires continue to burn for 1 hour
27 minutes, but only diminishing smoke is observed when at 10:30 AM
the North Tower suddenly collapses. At 9:03 AM, Flight 175, a
757 aircraft slams into the South Tower near the corner of the building
spraying most of the fuel outside the building. The fuel is burned
away in seconds with a huge fireball explosion as most of you have seen
on television. At 9:50 AM, only 47 minutes later the South Tower
collapses. Both buildings successfully withstood the aircraft's
impacts and their devastating explosions of jet fuel. People in
the 80th floors remarked they hardly felt the impacts. I have
spent a great deal of time looking at the video of the tragedy.
Something seems wrong. The South Tower who took less of a hit
and much less jet fuel collapses in half the time it takes the North
Tower to collapse. I noticed that just prior to the collapse of
either tower, debris is sent into the air like an explosion has just
The general wisdom is that the burning of the offices inside the towers
eventually caused the failure of the steel structure. It is well
known that steel eventually melts with high enough temperatures.
Watching the impact of the aircraft on the towers, it is apparent that
within seconds all or most of the jet fuel exploded and burned when
the aircraft crashed. The highest temperatures occurred at this
time, and this is when the steel was most likely to have melted.
The secondary fires from the office furniture and supplies are very
unlikely to have reached high enough temperatures to melt the steel.
The steel came from Japan and was designed to withstand high temperatures
and was protected by concrete insulation to withstand high temperatures.
The South Tower took a blow near the corner of the building spraying
half the fuel that exploded outside the tower. Temperatures were
at their greatest at this point within the corner of the building, and
the steel should have lost its strength at this point toppling the building
over on its side or at least dropping that part of the floor, but it
stood up. Hundreds of expert rescue personnel entered the buildings
and started conducting operations assuming the buildings were safe from
collapse. Emergency sprinkler systems appeared to be functioning
even on upper floors. After the initial impacts, little if any
open flames are apparent as people conduct an orderly evacuation.
Several people who had evacuated the buildings claimed they heard public
address announcements that the fire was under control and they could
return to their offices. Some people chose to return to work in
the building rather than continue the evacuation, because it was thought
the buildings were now safe. Suddenly without warning the
South Tower collapses. Van Romero vice president for research
at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology states, "The collapse
of the towers resembled those of a controlled implosion caused by high
explosives on buildings and other structures. The detonations
could have been caused by a small amount of explosive put in more than
two points in each of the towers. It could have been a relatively
small amount of explosives placed in strategic points. The MIT
faculty announced that "The structure was still good"
after the planes hit"
The towers have exterior columns that were damaged by the aircraft,
but the key to the buildings strength is its inner tubes. These
may have eventually melted losing their strength, or explosives may
have destroyed them? The towers steel cores were protected by
several centimeters of cement-based insulation. It is my contention
having worked for several engineering firms that the firemen's expertise
was correct. The buildings should not have collapsed from the
fire, that some other factors were involved. These could be faulty
construction, failure to follow the fire codes, or that the World Trade
Center was again attacked with high explosives like it had been several
years before. Osama Bin Laden is an experienced structural engineer
and terrorist. The aircraft attacks may have actually covered
up the actual explosions that destroyed the buildings. The explosives
may have been planted in the confusion. Two hundred and thirty
firemen who came into the buildings and started fire and rescue operations
were killed along with almost one hundred police officers. I watched
several interviews with eight firemen who survived and none thought
the Towers would collapse. Further investigation of the catastrophe
is warranted. Thanks to PsyOpNews.com.
UFOs ON THE WORLD TRADE CENTER VIDEOS
Peter Davenport NUFORC writes several people reported seeing UFOs in
the video of the crashes into the World Trade Center. We have
looked at many videos and still photos of the WTC attack, and we believe
that none of the allegedly anomalous objects appears to us to be UFO-related.
The tiny white object seen above Tower 1 at the time of the first impact
appears to us to be a helicopter on the near side of the tower and resultant
fireball, flying from left to right.
The fuzzy, indistinct object seen just to the right of the fireball
erupting from Tower 2 (southern tower) is more difficult to ascribe
to anything we are familiar with, but our suspicion is that the object(s)
may be the engine(s) from UAL Flight 175/Boeing 767 which, because of
their mass, penetrated through the building well ahead of the fireball
and other parts of the aircraft. We express our profound sympathy
to the many thousands of individuals whose loved ones perished in this
tragedy. Thanks to Peter B. Davenport, Director National Reporting
GRANTVILLE -- My 12 year old daughter came home from school and said
that she had to tell me something and that she thought I would not believe
her. She proceeded to tell me that she saw two alien saucers approach
our area on August 29, 2001, while waiting for the bus. She said,
"One had a sparkly light that came out the bottom of one of the
ships in a tubular shape, that went towards the ground and stayed there
for about 15 seconds and came back up the ship. Then both ships
left the area going away from our house." My daughter is
not the imaginative type, and she is afraid that something will happen
to her or her family. She prayed that whole day that nothing would
happen, and she cannot sleep well ever since it happened.
OHIO TWO FLYING TRIANGLES
MARIETTA -- The witness reports, "I was traveling east towards
my home on August 29, 2001, when I noticed an airplane from the local
airport. I was nearing Wal-Mart at around 9:20 PM, when I noticed
something just seemed out of place. The object was traveling very
fast, and its shape just didn't look right. I realized it was
not a routine flight, and it was coming from the wrong direction.
It was now flying directly towards my car and had five lights on it,
a blue light was on the very front of it, a white light just below the
blue one, 2 white lights on either side, and a flashing light in the
center of it. As it flew directly over my car, I slowed down,
and I noticed other cars in front of mine slow down also, so I know
I was not the only one who saw it. It finally passed over my car,
and there was no sound. I could see the triangular shape very
clearly and it was totally black against the moonlit sky. The
back had no indications of exhaust or smoke. The back was concave
in shape looking sort of like a boomerang but more triangular.
I could now see only four lights, the three white ones, and the bluish
white flashing light in the center. I was shocked when a second
flying triangle quickly followed the first. They both were moving
at the same speed and 1000 foot altitude. They were separated
by about 1000 feet and were moving very fast probably above 300 to 400
mph. Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC
GEORGIA DISKS ON THE NIGHT OF THE CRASHES.
GRIFFIN -- I was getting home from band practice on September 11, 2001,
the night that all the crashes happened and looking around I looked
to the north and saw two disks with lights on the edge through some
clouds at 8:45 PM. I was surprised because, I knew they were supposed
to be grounded. They had lights on them that changed in Sync from
blue to green. They darted around each other for about 10-15 seconds
before I lost track of them. I was really freaked out and I felt
like this needed to be shared. I am very serious about this report.
Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC www.ufocenter.com.
INDIANA LOW HOVERING DISC
ZIONSVILLE -- The witnesses report seeing a saucer shaped craft on September
1, 2001. It had solid white lights at the ends and bottom, flashing
white light on the top. We approached by car at 9:30 PM, and the
object appeared to be standing still and not moving. The object
hovered low then disappeared completely as we got closer.
TERRE HAUTE -- The reports seeing an elongated off-white iridescent
oval shaped object that appeared in the center of the clear sky, going
silently to the west at 4:57 AM. I could make out an apparent
dome-like structure on top before it went out of view about five seconds
later. The object was two inches across at arm's length.
Estimating 60 tangent at 500 feet away at ground level=866 feet high.
The same witness reported a minute later seeing a faint light green
sphere change direction towards the south, almost as if it noticed I
was observing it. I say this for two reasons, as it shifted in
direction directly between the trees in front of me, about 60 feet away,
and in an instant stopped then accelerated three times, in about as
many feet. Either it moved faster than my eyes could track it,
or it seemed to vibrate or shimmer losing it's round shape while in
motion. It then resumed course to the southeast. Even though
it was very small for it's altitude. Using tangent at 65 degrees
50 feet away at ground level=107 feet high. The size was a thumbnail
at arm's length. (Peter Davenport comments that both reports came
from the same source. We do not understand how anyone would be
able to determine distances, altitudes, and angles with the precision
implied by this case.)
WISCONSIN FLYING TRIANGLE
GREENVILLE -- On September 23, 2001, the witness said, "I was traveling
south on US 45 just south of the city of Greenville in Winnebago County.
I noticed an aircraft flying south parallel to me that had its landing
lights on at 10:00 PM. The aircraft made a sharp right turn and
headed back to the north. As we approached the aircraft near the
intersection of 150 and 45, it appeared the aircraft had stopped moving.
As we got closer we could definitely see that it was not moving and
that it was hovering at about 400-500 feet high. Other vehicles
were traveling south on US 45 and were slowing down also because of
what they were seeing. It appeared that it was no more than 1/4
mile away on the right side of the road hovering over farm fields.
The aircraft was shaped like a triangle with three or four bright white
lights on two sides and two red blinking lights. Thanks to UFOWisconsin
by Duane W
CRETE -- On September 1, 2001, the witness reports seeing a UFO hovering
over an open field at only 100 feet above the ground at 12:30 AM.
The witness was driving his truck, when the UFO moved quickly upward
and away from roadside. It was a dim yellowish white in color
and the underbelly was brighter in color and definition. The object
was the size of 1 1/2 buses in length. I did not believe in UFOs
until this happened. I was in total awe of how an object of its
size moved and changed direction so fast. Thanks to Peter Davenport
NEBRASKA DAYLIGHT FLYING TRIANGLE
OMAHA -- The witness was traveling on Crown Point Road on August 29,
2001, near the Blair High Road intersection, when he saw a black shape
moving through the air almost directly east. The witness has many
years of Air Force experience and familiarity with the air traffic patterns
of the area. He stated, "My immediate presumption was this
had to be either a dark colored B1 or possibly B2 bomber heading in
for a landing at Offutt AFB. Then, to my utter surprise, the object
'banked' giving me an edge on view; and what I now saw was a very long,
narrow angled black triangle. Having seen number of 747s at that
distance, I would estimate it at about that length of 231 feet. It was
clearly not the shape of a B2, nor a B1, because the only time it's
wings are back in a 'delta' type configuration is when it is flying
at high speed (which this craft was not). Second, because the
shape was way too narrow and triangular. I was going to stop and
keep watching this craft, but I first looked down to my Van's clock
to see the exact time, and when I looked up, the craft was gone."

COLDWATER -- Pat Wells saw an amazing orb in the western sky with his
30-70 binoculars on October 1, 2001, at 4:26 AM. It stayed stationary
for fifteen or so minutes then flew west. The light was intense.
Pat says, "I was looking above the western horizon about 20 degrees
and saw on orb with red white and yellowish flashing lights within and
revolving it then moved west pretty dam fast." I would be
interested in any other sightings. God bless America. Thanks

ARKANSAS FLYING LIGHTS
LITTLE ROCK -- Kaleeh Rodgers. E-mailed that, "My friend Kristen
and I were outside around midnight on September 31, 2001, trying to
get my telescope ready to look at the satellites. We heard you
could see them then. Kristen screamed, "WHAT'S THAT?"
I looked up and I saw these green, red and blue lights blinking green,
red, and then blue. Then all the lights came on. Then they
would all go off, and blink again, following the same pattern each time.
This "craft" hovered over us for about 30 seconds to a minute,
then flew off into the night sky faster than any plane, I have ever
seen. One of my interests is planes. Thanks to Kaleeh Rodgers.
COLORADO MINI UFO FLAP
SALIDA -- Seems we are having a mini-flap of sightings here in the San
Luis Valley, which, appears to have commenced with Tim Edwards' on September
10, 2001, with the sighting and videotaping of a triangular object cruising
over Salida. On September 22, visiting Texas hunters at the San
Luis Lakes observed a "huge moon-sized, glowing ball hovering to
the north over head the Dollar Lakes. This is the supposed location
of the sipapu or "place of emergence" for the Pueblo Indians.
The object appeared to extend two bright beams of light into the lakes.
Two other witnesses at the Great Sand Dunes Oasis Campground also reported
seeing what was probably the same object. The following morning
at 11:30 AM, another witness (while driving in the Baca development)
reported two disc-shaped objects flying low over the Sangre de Cristos
near Crestone Park. When a conventional plane flying at a higher
altitude neared their location, both discs appeared to "vanish
into thin air." I am investigating a number of other reports
from this past week, which I will post after confirmation. Thanks

CANADA NEW CROP CIRCLES
MIDALE, SASKATCHEWAN -- Three more Crop circle formations about 80 miles
northeast of Midale, were formed in wheat and found September 26, 2001.
Whether this is actually three circles in one formation or three separate
formations is not known at this point. Thanks to CCCRN NEWS [email protected] [email protected]
NORWAY UFO LANDS
OSLO -- On September 25, 2001, police in Helgeland, north central Norway,
have been getting a rash of reported UFO sightings, while a woman in
the northern town of Bodø insists a small flying object landed in her
garden. Tøgersen says several more people have come forward after
news reports carried the account of three people in the town of Mosjøen
who dove for cover when they saw a low-flying, whirling object hurtle
through the night skies On September 23. "We also have several
other witness observations of the same phenomenon in the same time frame
on Sunday," Tøgersen said. Other people have reported sightings
of additional UFOs that apparently resemble small, brightly lit balls.
While the larger object over Mosjøen emitted no noise whatsoever, Tøgersen
says the smaller objects are reported to have made a hissing sound.
But the most remarkable reports came from the northern city of Bodø.
There, a woman went out of her house and a flying object landed on her
lawn, stood there awhile, and then lifted off and flew away. Two
other separate individuals reported the same sighting, at the same time,
on Saturday evening. One of the two was driving his car when he
spotted it flying over Vefsnfjorden, while another saw it while out
on a veranda. Both reported that it was brightly lit. Thanks

Bill Clark writes, "Thank you for all the information on the military
buildup in Asia in Filer's Files." I think I will stop reading
the newspapers and just wait for your report each week - it's concise,
clear, and with some solid observations! I am a Ph.D. student
of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, where
most of the Mars data is being analyzed (at the Center for Space Research).
I have been in the middle of a big debate about Mars. About half
of the scientific community believes that no water could ever have existed
on Mars. The reasoning is not hard to follow.
One of the first objectives of any manned Mars mission will be to create
an atmosphere. The planet's gravity is so small that this atmosphere
would have to be constantly replenished to remain stable. Now,
if there were ever water on the planet, it would not have remained for
very long at all - it would quickly evaporate, then be lost into deep
space because the gravity could not hold it there. So it is virtually
impossible that water could ever have existed on Mars - especially not
in a huge volume as we have on Earth, for eons; long enough to have
caused all the land features we see now.
An alternate theory, which is presented in great detail on my web site
at http://www.inviticus.com, is that there is
a strong gravity flux in the neighborhood of Mars, sufficient to cause
these patterns on the surface. It would also explain why the Russians
never made it to Mars in six attempts, and why all three of our most
recent missions to Mars have failed (two crashed, and the third lost
half its solar panels in transit). It is certainly reason to be
cautious in our (meaning the US) current Mars mission, and the UK's
upcoming one. I have a trajectory optimization program on my web
site -- with source code -- if anybody wants to see for himself or herself
how tricky this mission is!
The problem is that, if you accept that the peculiar patterns on Mars
could not have been caused by water, and that they were caused by this
gravitational phenomenon - then it is necessary to say that this gravity
flux may be strong but it is probably not capable of creating such fine
features as we see on the planet surface. Thus people are even
more hesitant to discard the water wash theory because of what it would
mean in the interpretation of these surface features - i.e., they are
not natural. Thanks to [email protected] (Bill Clark,
NETHERLANDS CROP CIRCLE
Nancy Talbot phoned to inform me she had witnessed the formation of
a Crop Circle in the early morning hours of August 21, 2001. Nancy
had gone to Holland to visit an amazing young man called Robert.
Nancy was reading in bed at 3:00 AM, when she heard cattle outside her
room making noises. A few minutes later, they started again but
stopped about 3:15 AM. Nancy noticed her room was brightening
like a welders arc light. An intense column of light was above
the field located behind her bedroom. There were two tubes of
light about a foot in diameter shinning down on the field. The
lights went out for a second and other came down. Nancy jumped
out of bed and called for the young man she was visiting named Robert.
He was also awake in the kitchen and also saw the lights shinning down
about 85 feet away. They rushed outside and there was nothing
in the sky or field. Everything was quiet with no sound, and no
smells. They walked toward the field and just beyond the fence
was a Crop Circle in the string beans. It was a 35 foot ellipse
(stretched circle) with a twenty foot long off to one side with a crossbar
at the end, forming a 'T' coming off the ellipse. Nancy thought
she saw some steam rising from the Crop Circle. The next morning
Nancy saw the field from her bedroom window. We wondered if the
Crop Circle had been made so Nancy could see it. This observation
seems more than a coincidence and infers intelligence at work.

SINGAPORE SAUCER VIDEOTAPED
JURONG WEST -- Residents report seeing a UFO on September 22, 2001,
that hovered for 15 minutes over some apartment flats. The UFO
sparked excitement and speculation among the residents, some of whom
called the Channel NewsAsia hotline. Resident Benjamin Lee captured
the object on a video in the distance. "Then the saucer was
just hovering over the buildings, with a very bright light. "At
first we thought it was a chopper, but the lights were running around
the whole thing and it looks much more like a saucer." It was as
wide as the flat window," Joanne Lee says, "I didn't
believe it, so I used a toy telescope to look at it. It was very
clear, like a plate, rounded, with blinker lights," another eyewitness,
Mr. Tan, said. I saw it at 9.45 PM. I used a telescope.
There were many lights on the bottom of the saucer. There were
three windows. Fifteen minutes later, it flew off in another direction,"
Madam Yong added. A spokesperson from mobile phone company Star
Hub thought it could be their lightship, which flew over the Bukit Timah
expressway that night. StarHub said the two 1,000-watt lights
on the lightship are so bright it could have been mistaken for a UFO.
