Subject: Wang On UFO Statement By Chairman Of Joint Chiefs

Ed Wang has asked me to forward the e-mail below, received by me on
October 2. The statement by the Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs Of Staff
was posted on Ufomind's Area 51 Mailing List on September 26 and
forwarded by me to various places on the Internet the same day,
including the UFO Updates and UFOR mailing lists. See the archive of
UFO Updates at


Ed has told me that he regrets ever having posted the e-mail forwarded
by Wes Thomas to UFO Updates, though he was under very heavy and unfair
attack on the "In Search Of" list. He is relieved that the e-mail has
come out in the open instead of lurking in the background all the time,
and happy that the atmosphere has been cleared around his e-mail
address. He says that he has a lot of respect for my integrity.


Forwarded message follows:

Subject: RE: General Shalikashvili responds to ACC's Shadowlake
Invitation - or does he ? Just like out of a 50's Sci Fi movie!

STIG: You may want to pass THIS ONE on to your various communications
lists/pages! (I am unable to go post tonight, I've been SUPER SPAMMED
again, and can only upload a bit. The PC I am using is messed up).

Did ANYONE notice:

I understand retiring General John Shalikashvili (former head of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff - but my spelling is probably off) was questioned
by CNN on the record yesterday, and responded that he "goes to sleep at
night without fears that he will wake up in the morning under the
control of alien invaders" or words to that ffect...  Was this in reply
to the Shadowlake Invitation?

He also said words to the effect of "There is no evidence that aliens
have visited us."  which holds a bunch of water... eh (TITANNIC SPLASH!
on the floor)?

Note this pseudo-spontaneous response.  He carefully avoided saying
aliens did or didn't visit us.  I think his statement is something a
General who has reservations about making such a statement would say.

Cohen and the other Generals presently in office and subject to
Sanctions that could subject them to prosecution were they proven liars
in such a public forum by Congress during peace time, made no statement
at all at the time.

Shalikashvili tried to make the statement seem rather light and
amusing, but it came off just a bit on the nervous side...  And the
press laughter was quite contained.

Note the use of the former Head of the Joint Chiefs to issue a
statement? Sounds like a familiar tactic, hmmm? Right out of the 1st
Book of Military Plausible Denials, I think, and seemed like a "get the
guy on the way out to say it, just in case we have to blame somebody
for lying...  you know: he said it without Authorization from his
superiors... Aahh - he was getting old and senile..." etc. ??

How lame.

Anyone have any additional information on this strange, yet quite
telling event?

It doth appear that the mainstream press is all "a-jitter".  We're on
to something, here, folks -- and its quite big!

My hat off to ACC for sending that Shadowlake Invitation to Secretary

I think we may have just gotten something of an answer, if I have read
between the lines, correctly, and second guessed those brilliant public
spin doctors over at the Pentagon!!
