Dr. Mark Carlotto recently made public an excellent report and scientific analysis of the several anomalies that appear in the videos of space shuttle STS-48 and STS-80 missions. (See ANOMALOUS PHENOMENA IN SPACE SHUTTLE MISSION STS-80 VIDEO in Dr. Carlotto’s ‘New Frontier in Science’ web page - newfrontiersinscience.com).
Something that called our attention more specifically in that report was the event he identifies as F-1 in the STS-80 mission video, that originates, according to Dr. Carlotto’s findings, in an area located to the east of Puerto Rico, specifically in a zone south of the island of Vieques. The ‘anomaly’ consists of a large luminous object that seemed to come out from the sea at a point located in the south of the island of Vieques, and ascends to space, all the while being registered by the shuttle’s camera. Already approaching the shuttle the objects veers to its left and disappears from sight.
In our latest book in English language, ‘Vieques: Caribbean UFO Cover-Up of the Third Kind’ I report on many UFO/ alien related incidents that have occurred in that same area, and we think that his findings pertaining to event F-1 are very important due to the fact that what he reports CONFIRMS the situation we have been reporting for five years now, as many of the unidentified objects and luminous anomalous phenomena described in the book originate precisely in that same zone, coming out from or entering the sea. There have been many such important incidents reported by both Puerto Rico State policemen as well as Vieques Municipal policemen, US Navy security personnel, Vieques Municipal government employees and officials, fishermen, pilots, civilian pacifist protestors and many 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 made around Vieques by US Coast Guard ships, not allowing Vieques fishermen to go out to sea and earn their daily sustenance. A popular radio program in Puerto Rico, “Fuego Cruzado” (Crossfire), which analyzes political and social subjects, questioned the action taken by the Coast Guard. During the program, panelist Carlos Gallisá, a pro-Independence analyst, asked under what orders the US Coast Guard acted in such a manner, as normally they would not be authorized to put up a blockade. Soon it became known that the Coast Guard was acting under a classified order 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? The 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 was very dangerous to the national security interest of the United States. The panel on the radio program asked which nation this was, as such a justifying statement to issue the order “...did not make any sense”.
Without knowing it, the panel touched a nerve on the subject of Vieques, something never discussed, that had major implications, and which worried US national security strategists. The truth is that none of the nations which participated in bombing exercises with the US Navy and experimented with new weapons around Vieques represented any danger to the United States. So, to what nation or foreign power was President Clinton referring to when he issued this classified order, and why was it 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 in the areas of the El Yunque Rain Forest, in the east region of Puerto Rico, and under the sea around the area 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 Coming 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. The first sighting took place during the summer of 1997 around 9 P.M. Feliciano was driving his car on Route 997, which runs from 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 figured 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 lands 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 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 one of those triangles. 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, until then still under US Navy control, and on many occasions he witnessed brightly lit UFOs emerging from the sea in Punta Arenas sector and flying away at great speed in 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 between 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 certain of the seriousness of our investigation, Mr. Zenón gave us his testimony on some impressive situations he personally witnessed, commenting on the involvement the US Navy could have 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. It 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 we suddenly 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 out to sea to the south, 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 impressive 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 ... a sort of craft. It came out from the sea near the Playa Grande lagoon, in 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 extraordinary 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 at some distance 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 in a column of water. “We were all very impressed. It was the first time in my life that I have 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 the size.
“But what impressed me the most was that it was sucking out water from the sea, and the water was swirling like in a blender. A column of bright green light, similar to that of a powerful spotlight, was coming out from under the object. There was a hole there and the beam came out downwards, vertically. 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 these type of crafts, so called flying saucers, in both the western and eastern parts of Vieques. If we analyze this situation more deeply, we can see that these areas are controlled by the US Navy, and the Navy has never denounced this situation. They must have some knowledge of what is taking place. They just don’t seem to care about the presence of these objects.
“Because of this we must ask ourselves if there is some sort of communication or collaboration between these crafts’ occupants and people from the US Navy. But this is difficult to ascertain. It is a complex situation. We must ask ourselves what is going on because the Navy never denounces this and they (the Navy) have been here for 62 years.
“All this makes us wonder if there may be hidden reasons why the Navy forced the inhabitants of Vieques out from their land to live in a small piece of land in the center of the island. The Navy controls both the eastern and western portions of Vieques on which there are large extensions of uninhabited and restricted areas, also containing hills and beaches which no one has access to.
“If these things are happening in these areas and the US Navy is somehow involved, it would be very convenient for them to have this take place in these areas because no one would see and know what they are doing there. It very well could be also that the US Government and people from the Navy are secretly studying this advanced type of technology, possibly of alien origin, in the area of Vieques.
“Who knows? Maybe the things we have seen here are related to new aircraft prototypes that are secretly being 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 kept silent all this time because people can 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, imprisoned, only because we protested against what they were doing in Vieques. I’m aware that US Government agencies have manipulated public opinion, the people who have never witnessed any of this. They try to make them think that none of this (the UFO/alien reality) is happening, and it is not real. They would probably begin a ridicule campaign against us and at the same time use it to discredit the struggle of the people of Vieques to achieve the ending of the Navy’s bombing exercises. For this reason, I restrained myself from making any comments until now.
“But the people from our country, especially from Vieques, know me, and they know that everything I do is based on my convictions and my principles. They know that I’m not publicity oriented or someone who would invent this kind of thing because of my concern that doing such a thing would hurt our seriousness and therefore our efforts to get the Navy out. 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 used chemical and biological weapons in Vieques, an inhabited island. The use of such weapons is prohibited near populated areas. They denied it 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. That is why, due to everything we have seen here, they can be using Vieques to make contact with these crafts and their crew, and keep it secret. Maybe, if a group of disciplined individuals such as yourself investigates and discloses everything, the US Navy would feel forced to reveal it is happening. But something is definitely going on, and the US Navy is somehow involved, and won’t say what it is.”
There are many more events reported in the book, which include:
1. Landings of UFOs, humanoid beings in the US NAVY/Raytheon Corporation's R.O.T.H.R. radar system.
2. Shocking Disclosures by US Navy's Security personnel on the UFO/alien presence in Vieques.
3. A joint US military/alien activity?
4. Clashes between UFOs and US jetfighters.
5. An apparent covert US NAVY UFO/Alien contact program and an advanced alien technology testing program in Vieques.Note from the author
: At this moment the US Navy has stopped its bombing and military maneuvers in Vieques, but except for a sector of land in the western region of Vieques, all other lands previously controlled and restricted by that military agency were passed on to the US Department of the Interior, and this department subsequently placed it under the control of the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The US Fish and Wildlife Agency has converted the areas (Camp García, the bombing site and the Playa Grande sector where the ROTHR radar system is lo-cated, as well as Kianí lagoon) in a wildlife refuge.
At this moment the 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?
