HOLISTIC APPROACH: This site is dedicated to promoting a holistic view of the Earth and the cosmos. This includes not only all life forms and systems on Earth, but
also the non-teresstrial life that exists throughout the cosmos. Developing a holistic view takes into account that the parts of any whole cannot exist and cannot be
understood except in their relation to the whole. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, as reflected in holistic medicine that attempts to treat both the mind
and the body, or holistic ecology that views humans and the environment a single system. As we move forward, the coming decades will bring unparalleled
challenges with regard to the continuing existence of the human race and all of life on Earth.  We hope you enjoy your visit!
Air Force UFO Rules  Vanish After Huffington Post Inquiry

This site is dedicated to
promoting a
holistic view of
the Earth and the cosmos.
This includes all life forms and
systems on Earth, and also the
non-terrestrial life that exists
throughout the cosmos.
Developing a holistic view
takes into account that the
parts of any whole cannot exist
and cannot be understood
except in their relation to the
whole. As we move forward,
the coming decades will bring
unparalleled challenges. If we
are to survive, we must take a
holistic approach to healing
our world by first recognizing
that humanity, the planet and
all living beings are unified as
one Living System.
What makes this so intriguing is that the U.S. government officially stopped investigating UFOs in 1969 with the termination of the Air Force's
Project Blue Book.

The 22-year study, led by high-level military officials and academic experts, ruled that UFOs weren't extraterrestrial visitors, nor were they
technologically advanced aircraft, nor were they a threat to national security. With that, the military essentially shut the book on flying saucer
research, concluding that "nothing has occurred that would support a resumption of UFO investigation by the Air Force."

"The reason why the military is claiming they don't investigate UFOs is because they don't want to respond to people like you," former Air Force
Captain Robert Salas told The Huffington Post.

"They don't want to respond to reporters or to the public as to what the heck is going on, and it's been going on for so long. They just don't want to
have to answer that question."

Yet more than 40 years after the close of Project Blue Book, there were still written orders on what Air Force personnel should do in the event they
spotted a flying vehicle that couldn't be identified. As recently as early September, Air Force members who came across anything they didn't
recognize were told to note "altitude, direction of travel, speed, description of flight path and maneuvers, what first called attention to the object, how
long was the object visible and how did the object disappear?"

Eyes in the sky and on the ground were commanded to treat a UFO as they would if they had seen a missile, hostile aircraft or unidentified
submarine. All details were required to be included in a report to NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command), which protects the
airspace over the U.S. and Canada.

On Sept. 2, The Huffington Post made inquiries to the Air Force about the UFO directives. A spokesman said he'd arrange an interview with an
appropriate officer. But before the interview was set up, the 111-page instruction manual was revised on Sept. 6, and the UFO instructions were
deleted, as were other portions of the document, now shortened to 40 pages. For several weeks, military officials failed to respond to HuffPost
inquiries about the rewritten manual, which included changes to areas unrelated to UFOs.  Finally, on Oct. 5, after several follow-up calls, an Air
Force major emailed a response, informing HuffPost that UFO reporting is not a duty of the armed forces branch. He denied any cover-up, and
instead said it was a coincidence that the document was updated after this news organization asked for an explanation.

"UFO reporting is a NORAD requirement, but not a requirement for Air Force operational reports," Air Force Maj. Chad Steffey told The Huffington
Post in the e-mail.

"All Air Force Instructions are reviewed/revised on a regular basis (about every two to three years). For this revision, we merely deleted a procedure
that did not apply to this AFI.

"For any other questions about requirements for UFO reporting, I'll have to refer you to NORAD," Steffey wrote.

Unlike the Air Force, officials at NORAD acknowledge that looking into UFOs is part of their job description. Of course, most UFOs are eventually
explained as something far less extraordinary than little green -- or grey -- men.

"When I talk about UFOs, it is literally an unidentified flying object, not an extraterrestrial," said John Cornelio, chief of media relations at NORAD
headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo. "There is a blip on the radar, and we don't know what it is. And we're responsible for identifying
what that object is. We know it's an aircraft of some sort, but we don't know who it is, and so have to go up and identify it."

But here's the big question: Did the Air Force really stop investigating UFOs in 1969 as they have repeatedly claimed throughout the ensuing
decades?

"Absolutely not! They have continued to look into UFO cases," said Salas, co-author of "Faded Giant." "In fact, there are NORAD records from 1975
of UFO sightings -- and this was not any general aviation aircraft -- objects seen over missile sites and other bases.

"They scrambled jets to intercept these UFOs, which clearly operated at speeds that the jets couldn't keep up with, and they were sighted by a lot of
people," Salas told HuffPost.

Salas is just one of many former military officers who have come forward in recent years to disclose their involvement with a variety of UFO
incidents that occurred over several U.S. nuclear weapons sites, sightings that had been kept secret for decades.

"As a matter of fact, there was that incident in Wyoming last year where 50 ICBM missiles went down and the base commanders instructed the
troops not to talk to anybody about this UFO that was seen over the base," said Salas.

It was a scenario too familiar to Salas, who in 1967 was monitoring a launch control center at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. When UFOs
appeared over the base, Salas recalled, "all of a sudden, we started getting bells and whistles going off. As we looked at the display board in front
of us, sure enough, the missiles began going into an unlaunchable, or no-go, mode. They couldn't be launched."

In the aftermath of that event, Salas was debriefed by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, or AFOSI.

"After we told them our recollection of the incident, the AFOSI captain wanted us to sign papers, saying we'd never talk about this and swear we
wouldn't even talk to our wives or any of the airmen on the base -- nobody!"

HuffPost News first received the 2008 Air Force procedure document from John Greenewald, creator of The Black Vault, the largest private online
archive -- at 600,000 downloadable pages -- of declassified documents on UFOs, government secrets, conspiracies, biological nuclear weapons
and terrorist activities.

"When I first obtained AFI 10-206 in 2006, UFOs were in it, and were the same procedures as outlined in a previous Army-Navy-Air Force
publication called JANAP-146, that was a joint U.S.-Canadian manual for reporting UFOs, that came after 1969," Greenewald, author of "Beyond
UFO Secrecy," told HuffPost.

"They've had many opportunities to take [the UFO reference] off of this publication and now look at what happens," said Greenewald. "All of a
sudden, when a major news outlet like Huffington Post starts asking questions about why UFOs are still on the books -- to have that media outlet
not get a fast response, number one; and number two, the military completely re-writes the regulation, changes it and UFOs are nowhere to be
found -- that's a fascinating coincidence."

Using the Freedom of Information Act, Greenewald's 15-year crusade to pry government documents loose has yielded UFO reports from many
government agencies, like the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of Defense and the National Security Agency, documents that detail
UFO accounts beyond 1969 and into more recent times.

"You can find UFO documents that stretch all the way into 2008 on the shelves of quite a few agencies," Greenewald pointed out. "The CIA and
National Security Agency collected quite a bit of material after 1969. The UFO topic is of great importance that never went away."

At NORAD, Cornelio explains that they can't investigate every single UFO report that comes along.

"We have our specific role that we're responsible for, and that is to monitor threats to our nation," he said. "But at the end of the day, it's not our job
to identify every unidentified object that's out there. I'm aware of the process by which the command center handles these things, and I don't believe
it's something that's releasable."

Salas doesn't completely agree with Cornelio about the overall urgency that some UFO reports pose.

"Are you telling me they don't care about UFOs in general, whether they're from another planet or not? They do care; they care about anything in our
air space," said Salas. "They can't just say, 'No, we don't investigate UFOs.' They can't make a blanket statement like that because that's their duty,
their responsibility, to investigate UFOs.

"To me, they're talking out of both sides of their mouth."
