Interesting that as TTSA (or the CIA) continue to stage manage the roll-out of their soft disclosure media management, (or propaganda)... it appears they are attempting to brush-off particularly John Greenewald's concerns over official AATIP documentation and verification.
Dr Eric Davis in a recent podcast says at 14:36, about Senator Harry Reid and AATIP... "He pulled that name out of a hat, or out of thin air, and made that up... we never had that name before, so that became the nickname." http://kcorradio.com/KCOR/Podcasts/UFO-Classified/2019/march/dr-eric-davis-and-tom-winterton.mp3
The "back story" of AATIP has continually been inconsistent.
Also of interest in the podcast interview is the continuing propaganda about advanced intelligences being set-up as "threats." Dr Davis refers to contact as "nothing but malevolent" ... "nothing good" comes from contact, "the outcomes of interactions have always been negative"... "there's never anything positive that comes out of an interaction." (30:11 - 31:43)
The recent FREE organisation extensive survey results disagree profoundly with Dr Davis's assessment.
I still stand by my original blog article that the "evil aliens" propaganda is primarily about U.S. geopolitical concerns long term. IMO what is anticipated by the CIA and the DoD as the No.1 threat to the American way of life (50-100 years+) is the increasing spread, popularity and ideology of Islam. Especially as Christianity falters.
IMO, ET disclosure and 9/11 are linked; attempts to dent Islam long term. The 9/11 event and the U.S. response has over time created more serious global problems, with the anti Muslim message not taking hold.
The ET angle is rolling out to battle religion head-on over many years. The failed strategy of being told the looming "threat" is allegedly terrorist Islam, will be replaced by us being told the "threat" are the aliens, and that ET created religions to manipulate us all into fights... i.e.- the plan is for people to question their religious beliefs.
Personally I would warn people to be aware of the many subtle and not so subtle layers this "evil alien" propaganda will assume, connecting ET to wars, Nazis, etc, etc...
