Following on the success of the Rendlesham Forest Incident 30th anniversary Conference 2010 and the Rendlesham Forest 2012 Conference we are proud to announce that the Rendlesham Forest Incident conference 2014 will take place on Saturday September 20th.
Confirmed guest speakers for this
event are Richard Dolan and key eye-witnesses to the Rendlesham
Forest incident John Burroughs (USAF) Tech Sgt (ret) and Larry
Warren (USAF) the whistleblower on the incidents and former Police
Detective and publisher of UFO truth magazine Gary Heseltine.
Richard, born in Brooklyn, New York,
in 1962 is one of the world’s leading researchers and writers on the subject
of UFOs, and believes that they constitute the greatest mystery of our
time. He is the author of two volumes
of history, UFOs and the National Security State, both ground-breaking
works which together provide the most factually complete and accessible
narrative of the UFO subject available anywhere. He also co-authored a
speculative book about the future, A.D. After Disclosure, the first-ever
analysis not only of how UFO secrecy might end, but of the all-important
question: what happens next?
Richard’s latest work, UFOs for the 21st Century Mind, provides a fresh treatment of the entire subject. In it, he discusses the important sightings, the encounters, the politics, the cover-up, ancient aliens, the bizarre science, disclosure, and offers advice on being both critical and open-minded in today’s world. Like his previous three books, it asks fresh questions and offers new insights to further our understanding of the UFO mystery.
Richard hosts a weekly radio show, The Richard Dolan Show, on KGRA radio, is a frequent guest on Coast-to-Coast AM. He is currently featured on several television series and documentaries, including Ancient Aliens, Hangar One: The UFO Files and Close Encounters. Prior to his interest in UFOs, Richard completed his graduate work at the University of Rochester, where he studied U.S. Cold War strategy, European history, and international diplomacy. Before that, he had studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, and had been a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship.
For the past two decades, Richard has been a dedicated student of all things related to UFOs, steadily expanding his interests within that topic from his initial focus on government documents and the cover-up. Now his interests include it all, from the deepest aspects of the coverup, to contact and abduction, the science behind the phenomenon, how the phenomenon has affected world culture, his theory of a breakaway civilization, the possible relationship of artificial intelligence and biotechnology to the UFO phenomenon, and the implications of the end of secrecy, that is, the world After Disclosure.
Today, there is no aspect of the phenomenon Richard won’t study. He continues to look forward to exploring this topic in all its depth, a topic he believes opens our doors of perception, challenging us to see the world differently and more clearly. In addition to his research, Richard’s company, Richard Dolan Press, actively publishes innovative books by authors from around the world. His website is richarddolanpress.com
Richard's presentation at this event
will be: Global Military Encounters with UFOs: What It Means For Our Civilization.
He will also touch on the Rendlesham Forest Incident.
USAF Security Police/Retired. A native of Illinois, Burroughs entered the Air Force in 1979 and served over twenty six years in the US Air Force. He was assigned to RAF Bentwaters in June of 1979 as a law enforcement officer. Around 0300hrs December 26th 1980, Burroughs accompanied SSGT Penniston in an investigation of unusual lights in the Rendlesham Forest adjacent to the base. What began as a routine response to a possible base incursion or accident scene would become the defining episode of Burroughs life. Subsequent to his encounter with an object of unknown origin, Burroughs's career continued to provide him with training in law enforcement and investigation, which would prove invaluable in his personal investigation of the events in Rendlesham Forest.
Burroughs' presentation is intended to provide information on the storyline and events that occurred nearly 34 years ago. Of key concern to Burroughs are the medical effects resulting from his encounter, which have prompted, in his words, "an ongoing campaign to force the authorities to reveal the truth about what happened and to seek justice for the men and women caught up in these incidents, some of whom have suffered adverse physical and psychological effects. This campaign has a number of strands, including legal action, targeted Freedom of Information Act requests, and our book Encounters in Rendlesham Forest, published by St. Martins Press, one of the world's most prestigious publishing houses."
He will cover analysis that did not find it's way into the publication copy of the book -- issues not fully addressed and perhaps most importantly discuss in some detail declassified documents showing the British government knows more about the phenomenon than they have admitted.
On Monday 15 September 2014 John F. Burroughs, USAF Tech Sgt. (ret.) issued a press release asserting the UK's Ministry of Defence is using “bureaucratic double-speak” to claim the MoD has released all of its “UFO files” to the UK National Archive, while withholding the substantive files under a bureaucratic name change trick so that the truly sensitive UFO files remain hidden under the category Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).
According to the National Archives web page dated 21 June 2013 they stated they had today released its tenth and final tranche of UFO files, containing 4,400 pages of UFO policy, correspondence and UFO sighting reports covering the final two years of the Ministry of Defence's UFO Desk (from late 2007 until November 2009).
This seeming act of transparency was apparently a ruse, as FOIA requests by Burroughs have revealed two further versions of the truth.
In an initial response the MOD admitted the existence of 6 crucial UFO/UAP public policy papers which have NOT been released. According to that version UFO/UAP Policy papers dating from 1971 through 2004 have been held back. These papers contain the MOD public information policy for over three decades, including a change from the use of the term 'UFO' to 'UAP', in June of 2000.
In response to a follow-up FOIA request, the MOD revised its position to say that they were still maintaining 18 UFO documents as classified.
Nick Pope, Co-Author of the book Encounter in Rendlesham Forest with James Penniston and Burroughs, and former Directorate of Defense Security, Ministry of Defense who's gone on record saying Rendlesham might be the turning point in history that leads to the explanation of the UFO phenomenon" stated this when he learned of Burroughs FOIA discovery.
"I knew for sure that not everything had been released, because by the MOD's own admission, some files/documents had been lost, some destroyed, some redacted and some withheld altogether. Also, material where the information owner is a defense contractor (e.g. some of the Project Condign working papers) is exempt from disclosure altogether, as private companies are outside the scope of the Freedom of Information Act". The bottom line is this: whether it's exempt from the FOIA entirely, withheld/redacted under exemptions to the FOIA, destroyed or lost, some material on Project Condign and on the Rendlesham Forest incident has yet to emerge, and some may never come to light”.

“I think given the type of radiation that causes certain biological damage, we're dealing with something exotic, something that serves a purpose that every-day-humans on this Earth have no idea is capable of being done.” - Pat Frascogna, Esq., representing John Burroughs
“The well-reported Rendlesham Forest/Bentwaters event is an example where it might be postulated that several observers were probably exposed to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) radiation for longer than normal UAP sighting periods.” - Page F-4, ANNEX F, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in the UK Air Defence Region: Executive Summary, Scientific & Technical Memorandum - No. 55/2/00,” Ministry of Defence, December 2000 Click here to see this report from the MoD in full.
John Burroughs references U. K. document No. 55/2/00 by the Ministry of Defence, December 2000, (link above) that is formally entitled “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in the UK Air Defence Region: Executive Summary, Scientific & Technical Memorandum.”
Larry Warren was a United States Air Force Security Police officer assigned to RAF Bentwaters in December 1980 when he became an eyewitness to one of the events which constitute the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, the UK’s best known and best documented UFO event. Following his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Warren went on to blow the whistle on the event and is universally credited as being the individual whose courage and actions resulted in the Rendlesham Forest incident’s being made public.
He is co-author of the best selling “Left At East Gate: A First-Hand Account of the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident, Its Cover-up And Investigation” and will be hosting the conference.
Gary Heseltine is a former police detective in the UK with almost 23 years service. He is also the creator of the PRUFOS Police Database and oversees and runs its day to day activities.
