As stated in Part 1. I would address questions from the viewers in order of popularity. The first question is what makes me an authority on UFOs? Simply put, it was my job. I was one of five Space Officers for NORAD and US Space Command. Here is an unclassified version of my job description from my Officer Performance Report:
“Conducts joint combat operations to protect access to and exploitation of space by U.S. and allied forces. Employs all aspects of space control across all levels of conflict to deny exploitation of space by any adversary. Operates USCINCSPACE’s space control operations centers to track man-made orbiting objects and warn of hostile space events.”
In other words, nothing got into space or came in from space without me knowing about it. It was my job to advise the General Staff of space capabilities of foreign, domestic, and extraterrestrial threats. I had all sources available to USCINCSPACE and NORAD and US Space Command to detect, track, identify, and assess threats of any space object.
Some of my qualifications for this job included being a certified Mission controller and Operations Fight Commander for several satellite systems. I was in charge of launch, and day to day operations of these satellite systems to include mission readiness, and maneuvering the resources to optimize mission results. As a subset of these qualifications I was also a certified Space Orbital Analyst, which means I knew Space, how it operates, and what orbits are used for what missions. The Air Force literally spent millions of dollars to train me to do my job.
I do believe I am qualified to speak to the UFO phenomenon. When I do write articles on this topic, I will not be discussing capabilities or technologies that might endanger National Security, but I will discuss my observations in a general manner and give my perspective on events which are my own opinions and thoughts. Therefore, please refrain from asking questions on subject matters that you know I cannot answer without getting you and myself in trouble.
I might also add there will be some items that will not be popular with UFO organizations and enthusiasts. In many cases, what I have to say will burst their bubbles about certain theories. However, it might clear up some myths, legends, and misinformation that have developed or passed to the public over the years.
