NYUFO HOME: This is a short extract from an August 2022 episode of Tucker Carlson . CIA Acceptance Of The Surge Of UAP UFO Sightings. The point of interest is not on Tucker’s politics, however as a substitute the credible feedback from Stanford University PHD scientist, researcher and immunologist Dr. Garry Nolan. The UAP subject matter has to transcend earthly politics. Nolan was approached via the CIA to “help them recognize the scientific harm that had come to a few people, related to supposed interactions with an anomalous craft.”
CIA closely monitored the Air Force effort, aware of the mounting number of sightings and increasingly concerned that UFOs might pose a potential security threat Given the distribution of the sightings, CIA officials in 1952 questioned whether they might reflect “midsummer madness.” Agency officials accepted the Air Force’s conclusions about UFO reports. Although they concluded that “since there is a remote possibility that they may be interplanetary aircraft, it is necessary to investigate each sighting.”
A massive buildup of sightings over the United States in 1952, especially in July, alarmed the Truman administration. On 19 and 20 July, radar scopes at Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base tracked mysterious blips. On 27 July, the blips reappeared. The Air Force scrambled interceptor aircraft to investigate, but they found nothing. The incidents, however, caused headlines across the country. The White House wanted to know what was happening, and the Air Force quickly offered the explanation that the radar blips might be the result of “temperature inversions.” Later, a Civil Aeronautics Administration investigation confirmed that such radar blips were quite common and were caused by temperature inversions.
Although it had monitored UFO reports for at least three years, CIA reacted to the new rash of UFO UAP sightings by forming a special study group within the Office of Scientific Intelligence (OSI) and the Office of Current Intelligence (OCI) to review the situation. Edward Tauss, acting chief of OSI’s Weapons and Equipment Division, reported for the group that most UFO sightings could be easily explained. Nevertheless, he recommended that the Agency continue monitoring the problem, in coordination with ATIC. He also urged that CIA conceal its interest from the media and the public, “in view of their probable alarmist tendencies” to accept such interest as confirming the existence of UFOs.
