The Disclosure Project - Too good to be true?

I'm back from finishing another short-term Government contract which left me rather washed-out just before the Easter Break (hope you all had a good one) - hence another absence on my part from the blogging front.

However, I have had an opportunity to read the book "A.D. - After Disclosure" which I shall review in my next post - and which leads me onto another well publicised long-running project about 'Disclosure'.

Disclosure, with a capital 'D', has increasingly become the buzzword in the UFO community for a paradigm-shifting revelation about what is 'really going on' concerning the UFO phenomenon. Many believers in the E.T. hypothesis behind UFOs support the idea that the authorities (mainly US) have been in some sort of communication with extraterrestrials for the last 65 years (the key start date being the 1947 Roswell incident). The supposed by-product of this dialogue has been the opportunity to reverse-engineer 'alien' technology to make giant leaps in 'human' energy and military technology. All of this has - of course - happened in secret and most of the supporting evidence supplied to date would appear to be anecdotal but supposedly from 'credible' military and government sources.

Putting himself firmly at the centre of all this for the last two decades appears to be 'Dr.' Steven Greer with his Disclosure Project. There's plenty of stuff that an internet search will reveal about the project's activity which I won't go into here.

What's interesting to note however, is the project's upcoming documentary Sirius which will be broadcast towards the end of this month. It promises to be just the kind of big 'reveal' that many in the UFO community might love.

As for me, I remain firmly on the fence with the Disclosure Project for now. Here's why with some of my pros and cons:-


1. Steven Greer has been at this for a long time - over twenty years. That seems an awfully long haul for a con operation. If however, the project is a con it's a very well established and elaborate one, and what is the con's purpose - Money? Disinformation?

2. In 2001, Greer brought together an impressive panel of credible witnesses/supporters to speak about the UFO phenomenon and a related Government cover-up before representatives of major media bodies at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. Credentials of most (but not all - see below*) of the witnesses apparently checked out - or to put it another way - have not been seriously challenged by the media since. Witnesses/supporters included air traffic controllers, commercial pilots, military defence specialists with apparently top-secret clearance, military (including former US and other countries' airforce) personnel and - most significantly - astronauts.

3. As in any court of law or formal inquiry, when a significant number of people are brought together from very different backgrounds to offer evidence and testimony which supports a particular theory, there is often a hard core of truth at its centre.

4. Steven Greer appears to have some clout to have latterly been able to recruit Emmy Award winning film director Amardeep Kaleka to direct the upcoming Sirius movie, with actor Thomas Jane doing the narration - but celebrities are only human and can be hoodwinked just like Joe Public.

5. As I write, another event - echoing the one in 2001 - will be run at the end of this month - see Whilst this event appears to be driven by another 'Steve' - the controversial Stephen Bassett of the Paradigm Research Group - it suggests that Greer's event in 2001 paved the way for other such events - which is at least getting the whole subject discussed and debated more openly and with a higher profile.


1. Steven Greer's doctorate apparently has nothing to do with physics or astronomy. It's in 'medicine'. His training allegedly included teaching transcendental meditation and he has supposedly worked as an 'emergency room physician'. But then - what kind of doctorate exactly does one need to be an 'expert' on E.T. or 'exopolitics'?

2. No high-profile members of the mainstream scientific community have come forward to support the project. However, fear of ridicule is a very strong demotivating factor in such a community.

3. At least one witness* (supposedly ex-NASA) at the project's 2001 event famously claimed to have seen photographs of 'a base on the moon' but the dates he offered didn't check out, nor did his apparent age or work history. Was this person himself a hoaxer, a disinformation 'plant' or just simply 'one-cabbage-short-of-an-allotment'?

4. The Disclosure Project recently claims to have analysed a tiny humanoid corpse with 'unknown' DNA. That should usually set alarm bells ringing - for all the wrong reasons. In the past more than one capuchin monkey has been passed off as an 'alien' for example.

5. The mind-blowing claims being made overall by the project and its supporters just feel too good to be true. I know this point is purely subjective but it's a good rule of thumb when applied to the more mundane world of con-merchants and hoaxers. Only very rarely is such a rule of thumb wrong...


  1. Off topic, sort of, but wanted to let you know that we've added your feed to and would love it if you would include our 'Member' Badge on your

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Hi Zen,

    Thank you very much for adding my feed to your site - which I've looked at and think is a great repository for UFO/UAP related feeds and news. It's much appreciated.

    I've happily returned the favour by adding your member badge to my blog (above popular posts) and I hope your site gets a really big readership!

    Kind regards,


  3. Thanks for this post, it was great. As for Steven Greer I think he means well for the most part. He's just capable of getting carried away, which is very easy in this field.

  4. Hi Oliver - Thanks for your kind comment. I agree that it's hard for people to remain circumspect when they've been championing a particular cause for a long time. Like any politician or celebrity, figures such as Greer can also get misrepresented by an (often) biased media.
