Dr. Mark Carlotto recently made public his excellent report and scientific analysis of several anomalies that appear in videos of space shuttle missions STS-48 and STS-80. (See ANOMALOUS PHENOMENA IN SPACE SHUTTLE MISSION STS-80 VIDEO in Dr. Carlotto’s ‘New Frontiers in Science’ web page, www.newfrontiersinscience.com).
The particular thing that called our attention to his report was the event he identified as "F-1" in the STS-80 mission video. According to Dr. Carlotto’s findings, it originated from an area located to the east of Puerto Rico, in a zone south of the island of Vieques.
The ‘anomaly’ consisted of a large luminous object that seemed to emerge from the sea at a point south of the island of Vieques. It then ascended into space, all the while being recorded by the shuttle’s camera. As it approached the shuttle, the object veered to the left and disappeared from sight.
In our latest English-language book, ‘Vieques: Caribbean UFO Cover-Up of the Third Kind’ (see: IRAAP report) I report on many UFO / alien related incidents that have occurred in the same area. We think that Dr. Carlotto's findings pertaining to event
F-1 are very important due to the fact that his report CONFIRMS the situation we have also been reporting for five years now. Many of the unidentified objects and luminous anomalous phenomena described in our book originate in precisely the same location, emerging from or entering into the sea.
There have been many similarly important incidents reported by Puerto Rico State policemen, Vieques Municipal policemen, US Navy security personnel, Vieques Municipal Government employees and officials, fishermen, pilots, civilian pacifist protestors and residents.
President Clinton’s Secret Special Order
After the arrests of many civilian protestors on May 4, 2000, other events took place, some of which surprised even the political leaders of Puerto Rico.
One such event was the blockade around Vieques by US Coast Guard ships, which prohibited Vieques fishermen from going out to sea to earn their daily sustenance.
A popular radio program in Puerto Rico, “Fuego Cruzado” (Crossfire), analyzes political and social subjects. It questioned the Coast Guard's actions. During the program, panelist Carlos Gallisá, a pro-Independence analyst, asked under what authority the US Coast Guard had acted, since normally they would not be authorized to put up a blockade.
Soon it became known that the Coast Guard was acting under classified orders issued by President William Clinton, who declared the zone of Vieques as “...one in state of rebellion.” Why would acts of peaceful civil disobedience be considered acts of rebellion, asked the panelists.
This so-called secret, special order had been issued by President Clinton under the provisions of the US National Security Act, and it stated that the situation taking place in Vieques dangerously affected the relations of the United States with another nation — a foreign power — and emphasized that this situation was very dangerous to the national security interests of the United States.
The panel on the radio program asked which foreign power this was, since the justification for issuing such an order “...did not make any sense”.
Without knowing it, the panel touched a nerve on the subject of Vieques — something never discussed, with major implications, something that worried US national security strategists.
The truth is that none of the nations who participated in bombing exercises and experimented with new weapons around Vieques with the US Navy represented any danger to the United States! So, to which nation or foreign power was President Clinton referring when he issued this classified order, and why was it so secret?
The answer to this could very well be that the “foreign power” President Clinton was speaking of was an alien civilization represented by beings who seem to live underground. The affected areas include the El Yunque Rain Forest in the eastern region of Puerto Rico and underwater locations near the island of Vieques, off the west coast of Puerto Rico, at a distance of several miles.
The following are examples of such a presence in the area.
‘Triangle-shaped’ UFOs Suspended Over US Navy Airstrip,
UFOs Come out from the Sea
We interviewed the Director of the Vieques Municipal Police, Officer Wilfredo Feliciano, who informed us of a series of important observations he had experienced.
His first sighting took place during the summer of 1997, at around 9 P.M. Feliciano was driving his car on Route 997, which runs from the Esperanza sector to Isabel II. At the intersection of a place known as Marta’s Alley, he became aware of an intense yellow light hanging motionless in the sky some distance away. Intrigued, he parked the car at the left edge of the road to observe the light more carefully.
“It was a real big triangular object,” he stated, “completely engulfed in a bright yellow light ... It seemed to be at an altitude of about 500 feet above the ground, over property belonging to Camp García. I calculated the altitude based on the height of some trees in the area. What intrigued me the most was that the thing was suspended right over the area where the US Navy has an airstrip or runway for their planes to land and take off ... And that it was an unidentified flying object.
“There were no military exercises at the time, so what was that object, that triangle of light, doing there over the runway? Thinking that I was observing something I shouldn’t be seeing, I left the site at once. But from that moment on, I realized something very strange is taking place on the land controlled by the US Navy.
“Some days later, my wife told me that she saw a similar object, also at night, suspended over the exact same place where I had seen the object — over Camp García’s runway. The next weekend, as we were driving to her mother’s home, we saw another triangle. This time our sons were with us in the car; they saw it too.”
Feliciano and his family observed the object from a distance of two miles, and even from that distance, they described its size to be three to four feet in length, which indicates the object was very large.
He also told us that, as part of his duties with the municipal police, he had to patrol the land west of Vieques, at the time still under US Navy control. On many occasions he witnessed brightly lit UFOs emerging from the sea in the Punta Arenas area, flying away at great speed into the night sky. Often the objects would make several fast turns before leaving the area.
“This has happened on many occasions, sometimes between 9 and 11 PM, and sometimes around 2 or 3 in the morning. They come out from the sea at a spot right in the middle of Punta Arenas and Roosevelt Roads Naval Station in Ceiba.”
Large Saucer Craft Absorbs Water from the Sea
Witness Carlos Zenón is a Viequense fisherman and one of the leaders involved in the movement to remove the US Navy from the island. Both he and his sons suffered periods of incarceration in the US federal prison in Puerto Rico because of their commitment to this cause.
Once he was certain of the seriousness of our investigation, Mr. Zenón gave us his testimony on some impressive situations he witnessed personally. He commented on the involvement of the US Navy with the UFO / alien incidents experienced by the people of Vieques.
“These sort of events," he stated, "have been occurring here (in Vieques) for some time. This is not something new. On one occasion in 1996, I was fishing with some other fishermen out at sea. We were a couple of miles south of La Esperanza. It was about 9:00 PM when suddenly we saw something unexpected. We saw several very bright spheres of light come out from the top of Cerro Ventana (mountain located in the south of Vieques).
“These globes of light were of a blue-white hue and seemed to come right out from the top of the hill. They circled the hill and flew to the south, out to sea, flying right over us. They made several quick circles and angle turns. You could hear a slight hissing or whistling sound, almost inaudible, which seemed to come from them.
“After that, they returned to Playa Grande and Cerro Ventana, areas controlled by the US Navy, and disappeared inside the mountain. It was as if they had merged with the side of the mountain.
“But the most astounding event was when we encountered a huge object at night, while out at sea fishing. I was with Aníbal Corcino and his father, and we had just come out from La Esperanza.
“I wasn’t aware of the object at first because I was the captain and in charge of the rudder at the time. Aníbal and his father saw it and yelled, ‘Carlos, look at that!’ I looked back and saw this huge ... sort of craft. It came out from the sea near the Playa Grande lagoon to the south, where the Navy’s ROTHR radar system is installed. It rose from its position and started moving closer to us.
“It was an extraordinarily huge craft — immense — with many lights all around it. It was a flying saucer, a round disc-like craft, but really huge in size. It was some distance away from us, but clearly visible due to its size and the lights it had all over it — yellow, blue and red lights.
“The peculiar thing about all this was that the object, that saucer, was taking in water from the sea. The water at the sea’s surface was swirling in a circle and jumping, as if boiling. It was like a whirlpool. It seemed to be going up into the saucer as a column of water.
“We were all astounded. It was the first time in my life that I had ever seen anything like this craft. From where we were, it looked to be about 40 to 50 feet in diameter, and we were about a mile and a half away from it. That can give you some idea of its size.
“But what impressed me the most was that it was sucking out water from the sea, and that the water was swirling like liquid in a blender. A column of bright green light, similar to that of a powerful spotlight, was being emitted from under the object. There was a hole underneath and the beam came out vertically downward. The water went up into the saucer through the beam of light. After that, the object flew away to the west at a fantastic speed and disappeared in a matter of seconds.
“Many other people have seen this type of craft, the so-called flying saucers, in both the western and eastern parts of Vieques. If we look at this situation more closely, we realize that these areas are all controlled by the US Navy, and the Navy has never acknowledged the existence of this situation. They must have some knowledge of what is taking place, but outwardly they continue to profess not to care about the presence of these objects.
“Because of the secrecy, we must ask ourselves if there is some sort of communication or collaboration between the crafts’ occupants and the people from the US Navy. This is difficult to ascertain because this is a complex situation. We must ask ourselves what is going on because the US Navy never acknowledges anything, and the Navy has been here for 62 years.
“All of this makes us wonder what the hidden reasons are behind the forced removal of the inhabitants of Vieques from their own land. Why did the US Navy move them to a small piece of land in the center of the island? The Navy controls both the eastern and western portions of Vieques. These two parts of the island have large expanses of uninhabited yet restricted areas, including uninhabited hills and empty beaches that the public may not access.
“If anomalous events are happening in these restricted areas and the US Navy is somehow involved, it would be very convenient, because no one can see or know what they are doing here. Also, it may very well be that the US Government and Navy personnel are secretly studying advanced types of technology, possibly of alien origin, in the area of Vieques.
“Who knows? Maybe the things we have seen here are related to new prototype aircraft that is being secretly developed and tested. They could be in contact, communicating with the crew of these crafts — the OVNIs (UFOs) — and they simply don’t want the public to know.
“This situation is very serious. I have remained silent all this time because people usually doubt what you say about this type of thing. Not everyone has had the opportunity to see one of these crafts, especially one as big as the one we saw.
“My sons and I have been jailed and imprisoned, just because we protested against what was happening in Vieques. I’m aware that US Government agencies have manipulated public opinion — a public that has never witnessed any of this. They try to make people think that none of this (UFOs and aliens) is happening, and that it is not real. They could probably begin a campaign of ridicule against us and at the same time use it to discredit the struggle of the people of Vieques to achieve the end of the Navy’s bombing exercises. For this reason, I have been reluctant to make any comments until now.
“But the people from our country, especially from Vieques, know me and know that everything I do is based on my convictions and principles. They know that I’m not publicity oriented or someone who would invent this kind of story. My concern is that doing such a thing would hurt the seriousness of what we are saying, and therefore our efforts to get the Navy off of our land. That is our main goal. We have endured many personal sacrifices because of our cause.
“The moment has come to discuss this matter. The Navy has used chemical and biological weapons in Vieques, an inhabited island. The use of such weapons is prohibited near populated areas. This fact was denied until recently, when it was verified by documents from the Pentagon.
“They also used live ammo with depleted uranium, and denied it until it was also proven. Because of everything we have seen here, this is why we believe that they could be using Vieques to make contact with these mysterious craft and their crew, keeping everything secret.
Maybe, if a group of disciplined individuals such as yourself investigates and discloses everything, the US Navy would feel forced to reveal the truth — that these things are happening. Something is definitely going on and the US Navy is somehow involved, but they won’t say what it is.”
There are many more events reported in the book, including:
- Landings of UFOs, humanoid beings in the US NAVY / Raytheon Corporation's R.O.T.H.R. radar system.
- Shocking Disclosures by US Navy's Security personnel on the UFO / alien presence in Vieques.
- Joint US military / alien activity?
- Clashes between UFOs and US jetfighters.
- An apparent covert US NAVY UFO / Alien contact program and an advanced alien technology testing program in Vieques.
Note from the author: At this time, the US Navy has stopped its bombing and military maneuvers in Vieques. Except for a parcel of land in the western region of Vieques, all of the land previously controlled and restricted by the Navy was passed on to the US Department of the Interior, and from there was placed under the control of the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The US Fish and Wildlife Agency has since converted the areas into a "wildlife refuge" (Camp García, the bombing site, the Kianí lagoon, and Playa Grande, where the ROTHR radar system is located). Now, access to these areas is even more restricted to the public than it was during the US Navy’s control.
What else could be happening that is being kept from the people of Puerto Rico and the rest of the world?
