London, UK - Stephen Bassett, executive director of Paradigm Research Group and a leading advocate for formal acknowledgment by the U.S. government of the truth behind unidentified aerial phenomena, is on an extended visit to the United Kingdom.

Bassett's visit, which began with a presentation at the Leeds Exopolitics Conference on August 7, is for the purposes of doing research on a book due out in early 2012 and to meet with extraterrestrial phenomena researchers and exopolitical activists to discuss the status of the Disclosure movement.

Right now the United Kingdom is the center of a great deal of activity pertaining to the disclosure process.  On August 11 the 8th batch of UFO files since 2006 was released from the MoD to the public domain, and as in the past, generated scores of news articles throughout the British Isles.   Recently, the former Ministry of Defense UFO Project chief, Nick Pope, to his great credit apologized for past disingenuous and demeaning actions by the MoD toward the public's interest in and reports of unidentified aerial phenomena.  Would that David Cameron did the same.   Two UK rock music stars, Robbie Williams and Peter Andre have publicly expressed an interest in the phenomena.  Mr. Bassett is seeking to meet with Mr. Williams and Mr. Andre during his stay.

The United States and the United Kingdom have worked closely together since the 1950's to maintain a truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial reality in the world, now. This embargo was initiated for legitimate national security reasons, but is now a liability to both nations helping to engender distrust in government.  It has created a Lewis Carrollian wonderland of absurdity which has helped to make fools of many.   Recent examples include investigative reporter Annie Jacobsen's ludicrous writings on Roswell in her book Area 51; actress Jodie Foster throwing hundreds of thousands of dollars down the same drain Paul Allen tossed tens of millions to fund SETI, a propaganda science buffer created by NASA to mitigate public demand for answers from government; economist Paul Krugman's ridiculous comments that the threat of a "war with aliens" could rejuvenate the western economies; and a juvenile report out of Pennsylvania State University that aliens might destroy the human race for polluting the Earth.

Were it not for the massive and hard won evidence for an extraterrestrial presence being denied by governments and skirted by the media of record, such incidents would be amusing.    The truth embargo is now an insult to the collective human intelligence and must end.   A new project from Paradigm Research Group, World Disclosure Day, was launched on July 1 to help bring that about.   Over four thousand endorsements of WDD have been submitted with the two leading countries being the United States and the People's Republic of China.  PRG hopes to see more endorsements of World Disclosure Day from the United Kingdom.

World Disclosure Day - July 8

July 8, 2011

Washington, DC -On July 8, 1947 General Roger Ramey held a press event at the8th Army Air Force Headquarters in Fort Worth, Texasin which he changed an earlier press release announcing a recovered crashed disk near Roswell, New Mexico to that of a retrieved Rawin weather balloon. This was the informal beginning of the now 64-year truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.  

Five years after Roswell in July of 1952 a plethora of sightings took place over Washington, DC creating great concern amongst those responsible for the nation's security.  Subsequently the Central Intelligence Agency commissioned a classified panel to study and assess the phenomenon and the growing public awareness of extraterrestrial craft in the skies over the United States.   The panel first met formally on January 14, 1953 under the direction of Howard Percy Robertson, a physicist, CIA employee and director of the Defense Department Weapons Evaluation Group.

The Robertson Panel's report concluded the extraterrestrial craft were not a direct threat to national security, but the public's growing interest and engagement of the phenomenon was a threat.  Consequently, President Truman's decision to reverse the Roswell crashed disk explanation in 1947 became a highly classified formal government policy in 1953.  Official acknowledgement would be withheld and public awareness of the phenomenon would be suppressed by any and all means.   This policy was very much connected to grave concerns over the developing cold war and nuclear arms race and was certainly legal under the National Security Act of 1947.  For this reason Paradigm Research Group has worked to replace the term "UFO Cover-up" with "Truth Embargo."

Twenty years after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War it is time for this policy of embargo to end.

Disclosure with a capital "D" is the formal acknowledgement by world governments of the extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and is the primary goal of a growing international truth movement. The purpose of World Disclosure Day is to provide a focal point for people and organizations to come together to assert their right to know extraordinary information being withheld from them by their governments.  World Disclosure Day will also help broaden public awareness of the Disclosure process and those organizations involved in the advocacy work.  The date July 8 was chosen to close the circle back to the Ramey press event in July of 1947.

People and organizations from every nation can register their endorsement of World Disclosure Day at the website. Endorsements from around the world are already pouring in and being archived.    Here is how supporters can help make this international effort a success.

1)  spread the word via email lists, Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts.

2)  create a graphic banner or poster promoting WDD and send it to PRG to be distributed and archived with attribution.

3)  create a video promoting WDD and put in on the Internet.   Provide PRG the link so it can promote the video.

4)  let local TV and radio talk shows know about WDD.

5)  join the WDD Facebook Page and the PRG Facebook Page

6)  grab banners from the WDD website for placement on other websites.

7)  looking ahead to 2012, plan events for July 8 to draw attention to the public's right to know the truth.

8)  help educate your friends, family and colleagues about the mission of the Disclosure advocacy movement.

Note: on the day the first nation comes forward to finally and formally acknowledge the extraterrestrial presence, that day will then become World Disclosure Day historically recognizing the most profound event in human history.
