    The O´Hare incident is getting major press. It´s all over the net. The mainstream media makes sure they put the funny farm spin on it, but CNN has done a few takes on the story. Apparently, pictures were taken, but are not yet available.

    The Glenn Beck Program


    [19:44 Eastern]

    Beck: OK, illegal aliens may be a serious problem on our
    southern border and on the northern border, but what about the
    aliens who may be crossing another border? Oh, yes, the border
    above. That's right.

    We're talking about outer space, aliens, extraterrestrials,
    Latoya Jackson, you know, you know, they're here, they're among
    us. More and more people believe that space aliens may be

    (As I said, almost every major media outlet has to attach a wackyness statement to anything related to UFO´s, and Beck is no exception, even though he knows the story is serious.)

    Now listen to this story, because this is an actual news story.
    This isn't like out of the Weekly World News. Chicago O'Hare's
    airport recently - the United Airlines employees claim they
    observed a flying saucer-like object hovering low over the
    terminal for several minutes before bolting through the thick
    clouds with such ferocity that it actually left like a creepy
    hole in the cloudy skies overhead.

    So what was it? A hoax? An alien attack? Were they observing us?
    Is this a military operation? What was it?

    Joining us now is UFO historian Richard Dolan and the guy who
    actually broke the story. His name is John Hilkevitch. He is
    from Chicago and the "Chicago Tribune."

    John, let me start with you. The UFO witnesses in Chicago,
    they're not nuts, are they? They are like really fine,
    upstanding people?

    Jon Hilkevitch, Chicago Tribune: And they're very serious
    about this. They're all United Airlines employees, ranging from
    pilots to supervisors, who heard chatter about this on the radio
    and raced out and saw it in the sky, aircraft mechanics,
    veterans of O'Hare who have been there for a long time, know how
    lights can play tricks in the sky, and they say this wasn't
    that. This was a real, metallic, gray object, low in the sky,
    and they want answers.

    Beck: OK, do you believe them? Do you believe that they believe
    it or - do you believe that they really saw what they think
    they saw?

    Hilkevitch: I believe that what they're reporting - and it is
    real, and they were concerned about safety. They're not
    necessarily saying that this is a craft from another galaxy...

    Beck: Sure.

    Hilkevitch: ... but they're saying this is an unidentified
    flying object, low in the sky over the world's second-busiest
    airport. It could pose a collision risk, who knows, a security
    risk, in this era of post- 9/11. And they...

    Beck: Now, let me go to Richard here. I'm sorry to interrupt.
    But let me go to Richard for just a second and ask you, because
    isn't this the same kind of thing that, when we had the new
    stealth fighters out, everybody was saying, "It's an alien
    spacecraft." No, it's just a secret military aircraft that we
    hadn't announced for years in advance.

    Is there a possibility that you think that this is just some
    sort of military aircraft that we haven't released that we have?

    Richard Dolan, UFO Historian: Sure, anything is possible, Glenn.
    But if you want to go that route, then I think what you need to
    do, to be honest about it, is go back through the decades and,
    indeed, generations of reports that we've collected of these
    types of objects that people have been seeing.

    And let me just add that this is a phenomenon that not simply
    civilian people have been dealing with, but U.S. military
    personnel had been encountering what appear to be UFOs - I
    don't know what else you would call them - objects that
    military pilots have frequently said are disc- shaped, that look
    exotic, that behave in unusual ways, and that have violated
    sensitive airspace time and again for many, many years.

    So if this is a secret, covert project, as many people have
    speculated, it seems to be going on in a rather confrontational,
    provocative way, and that really doesn't have any explanation.

    Beck: All right. So, John, you think that this is - there was
    some sort of a cover-up. At least the FAA was not real honest
    with you when you first asked, right?

    Hilkevitch: Well, yes. I went to the FAA, and they said they
    have no reports of this at all. I put in a Freedom of
    Information Act request, and then they got back to me several
    days later, saying that, in reviewing the communication tapes at
    O'Hare, they did come across chatter involving this object, and
    that a United supervisor contacted the FAA manager in the tower
    and asked that they, the controllers, had seen anything unusual.

    Also, United Airlines told me that they had no reports of this,
    even though the fact is that they were interviewing up to a
    dozen employees who reported observing this, asking them to
    write reports, draw pictures.

    After my story broke on Monday, United said, "Well, yes, we have
    been talking to these employees."

    Beck: OK, so, Richard, why would United, why would the FAA -
    give me an explanation why these guys would be hiding this

    Dolan: Well, I mean, one reason just might be that they're
    embarrassed to come out and say that, "Oh, yes, you know, we've
    got this UFO hanging out over O'Hare and we don't know what to
    do about it."

    Let's face it. If you're running a large corporation or a
    bureaucracy, the last thing you want to do is stick your neck
    out on an issue like this. And so it doesn't surprise me at all.
    And, in fact, this is, again, part of a long history.

    FAA, as well, has not always been forthcoming over many, many
    alleged cases. I mean, witnesses have seen these very bizarre
    things for years and years. And it's very tough to get a
    straight answer out of a lot of government agencies or other
    corporate bodies.

    Beck: All right. And then, John, let me go back to you and ask -
    - I mean, jeez, I saw Saddam Hussein hung with a cell phone
    camera. How come there's no pictures? Are there pictures? Is
    there video? Is there anything? Here it is, over Chicago and
    O'Hare Airport, how come we don't see any visuals?

    Hilkevitch: Well, pictures haven't emerged yet, but I'm told
    that the flight crew that was being pushed back, one of the
    pilots did open the wind screen, look out, did identify this
    object, and he had a digital camera. He may have taken some

    We're also hearing other reports that there may have been
    photographs from camera phones and such that United Airlines may
    be aware of this. And I'm working - believe me - to find these

    Beck: OK, if anybody has information on those witnesses, how do
    they get a hold of you?

    More pilots talking about the nasty.

    A search of Youtube with "XCon" bring in tons of stuff.

    The David Sereda presentation is really good.
