Okay, imagine it. You have an object you need to transport from point A to point B. It’s not easy to transport this sucker because it, well, looks like something else that you know will have Twitter and Facebook buzzing with rumors. What to do?
And what to do depends on the object. On the evening of June 13, a flatbed truck made its way through the streets of Washington, D.C. It was hauling an object that was 82 feet long, 32 feet wide, 14 feet high and was shaped like a UFO. Well, that certainly lit a fire beneath the social networks. A friend emailed a friend who emailed another friend who put it on Facebook, then tweeted it, then… You get the idea. In a matter of minutes, the story was everywhere.
The Maryland State Police apparently set the record straight about what the object on the flatbed was: a military drone manufactured by Northrup Grumman. It was being shipped from West Virginia to the Patuxent Naval Air Station in Maryland.
OK. Let’s say that’s true. Then why parade it so openly through DC. Streets? Why not cover up the object? Why not enclose it in some huge truck? Why not put it on some mammoth aircraft carrier? Are we to believe the government is so clueless that they don’t know the drone resembles a UFO? That a UFO is what many observers see, there on the back of that flatbed? Whoever is in charge of the transportation of this object is: clueless; a trickster; or an experimenter.
So if this is an experiment, what’s it supposed to prove? Will we panic? Will we accept the official version of events as we are supposed to do regarding UFOs? Maybe it doesn’t prove anything. Maybe it just tells the experimenters something about us, as a species, a human collective that suspects we have been lied to about UFOs. Psychiatrists and broadcasters will have their take on our reaction. They will tell you what to think about it.
The best way to conceal the truth is either through denial or by being obvious. Drop that UFO on the back of that flatbed and transport it through Washington, D.C. and let the social medias buzz away – and call it a drone.
Then again, maybe it IS just a drone. Yet, the question remains, why was it shown in public, and why in Washington D.C.?
