NY Times Article: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program. Is this a New Paradigm Shift?

by Martin Willis

Since I started this show in 2011, never have I seen anything like what happened over the weekend! Jokingly, I told Alejandro Rojas that ‘my email was ringing off the hook’. Past guests, both Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal along with New York Times Pentagon Correspondent, Helen Cooper took one small step, that was a giant leap in how people look at the topic of UFOs.

A few days in, and now all of mainstream media has taken the plunge, the people who never even thought about the topic are suddenly talking about it.

I commend all the people involved as well as the NY Times for having the courage to publish the what will be a snowball effect of interest.

For this week’s show, I am reaching out to the authors, and so far have heard back from Helen Cooper who declined by stating that she is ‘too tapped out’.
