Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – scientific analysis: ASIO and DIO on distribution record for FBIS materials – #ufo #unusual
Due to the eagle eye of Twitter person @tploft2008, it has come to mild that some distribution lists of the previous International Broadcast Data Service (FBIS); the place the subject material was UFOs, had the Australian Safety Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) and the Australian Defence Intelligence Organisation (DIO) on that record.
What was the FBIS?
The FBIS was an open supply intelligence element of the Central Intelligence Company’s (CIA) Directorate of Science and Know-how. Its position was to observe, translate and distribute the contents of overseas broadcasts to varied elements of the US authorities. The FBIS was dissolved in November 2005, and have become the CIA Open Supply Middle (OSC.) For a few of its life, its headquarters was in Reston, Virginia, USA. In 2015, the OSC grew to become the Open Supply Enterprise, which screens radio, tv and on-line.
@tploft2008 situated quite a lot of such paperwork together with the next examples:
1. A doc dated 16 November 2000, the place the topic was “Azeri Safety Ministry denies Russian reviews of UFOs flying over border.” Right here the distribution record has a line “To RAYWAP/Lawyer Basic.”
2. A doc dated 25 August 2001, topic “Azerbaijan Aerospace scientist says aliens have ‘resesarch base’ in Caspian.” This distribution record has “To RAYWAP/Lawyer Basic D Department Canberra ACT AS. Notice that the Lawyer Basic D Department is simply one other identify for ASIO.
3. A doc dated 10 October 2005, topic “ROK’s YONHAP watcher reviews sighting a whole bunch of UFOs over Korea.” Once more this went to Lawyer Basic D Department.
4. A doc dated 25 October 2010, topic “Turkey:Retired common says encountered UFO over Western Aegean 1983.” This record comprises each Lawyer common D Department, and DIO Canberra.
Why have been they on a distribution record?
So, one query is, why was ASIO, after which ASIO and the DIO, receiving copies of FBIS messages the place the subject material was UFOs, within the interval 2000-2010? Did these organisations, ever have an curiosity in UFOs?
There are indications from some sources that ASIO was within the matter of “alien craft” from 1952. In 1956 the Commonwealth Investigation Service, held a file, (NAA file sequence A1533, management image 56/2773 titled “The Australian Flying Saucer Analysis Society.”)
ASIO maintained a file ( NAA file sequence A6122, management image 2155 titled “Queensland Flying Saucer Bureau Quantity 1”) between 1959-1963. From the contents of those recordsdata it grew to become clear that ASIO was keen on people inside Australian UFO teams who exhibited “Communist tendancies” and monitored them, writing reviews on their actions. Additionally it is identified that ASIO, inter alia, was keeping track of sightings of unidentified plane in Papua New Guinea, in 1959.
The foreunners for the present Defence Intelligence Organisation (1989-today) have been the Joint Intelligence Bureau (1947-1969) and the Joint Intelligence Organisation (1969-1989) . Throughout a search of the NAA I situated the next file: NAA file sequence JIO63, management image 3092/2/000 “Scientific Intelligence – Basic – Flying Saucers.” Date vary 1957-1972.
Additionally it is identified that the JIB investigated the 1954 “Sea Fury” radar/visible case.
So, traditionally, we all know that each ASIO and the DIO maintained recordsdata coping with the UFO topic. Nevertheless, these are on the newest completed by 1973. Nothing of more moderen classic has been discovered within the Nationwide Archives.
The Australian Division of Defence (RAAF) closed its personal UFO investigations in 1996, and right this moment maintains that it has no curiosity within the topic of UFOs/Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
Monitoring the topic
So, who in ASIO and the DIO was monitoring the UFO topic within the interval 2000 to 2010? Did they proceed to observe the topic past 2010? Certainly, do they proceed to take action right this moment? Sadly, at current, the reply to this query stays unknown, and possibly unknowable, as each these organisations are exempt from the Australian Freedom of Data Act.
Can any readers make clear this thriller?
