NASA Secret Missions

Mystery Surrounds NASA's Secret Mission in Africa

A NASA official recently confirmed that one of the agency’s aircraft had been spotted on an American military airstrip in eastern Africa a few weeks ago, but like a series of U.S. military officials, declined to say what the space agency’s high-tech bird was doing there.
“I really can’t give you any of the details,” Jim Alexander, a NASA official with the WB-57 High Altitude Research Program, told ABC News. “You know, the airplane was there, you see it in the picture. But I really can’t tell you what it was for.”
The broad-winged white plane belonging to the agency best known for putting a man on the moon was photographed by the satellite company Digital Globe back in September sitting next to some tilt-rotor aircraft at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, a development reported by the military blog War Is Boring last month.
A NASA website that tracks the agency’s three WB-57s shows that one of its planes, number 926, was on a “foreign deployment” from July to November this year. A NASA handbook for the WB-57 posted online lists 14 international deployment sites for the aircraft around the world, but the American base near Djibouti isn’t one of them.

The Pentagon declined to answer any questions about “a NASA aircraft in Djibouti” and a spokesperson for the Air Force Space Command, which has a closer relationship with NASA, said they wouldn’t have operational knowledge of a mission on the continent. AFRICOM, the U.S. military’s Africa Command, would only say that “aircraft from a variety of agencies and nations perform diverse missions from Camp Lemonnier in support of U.S. and allied military peace and security operations in the region, which spans East Africa and the Mideast.”
“As a matter of policy, we do not discuss details of operations,” AFRICOM public affairs officer Tom Saunders told ABC News by email.
NASA’s Alexander said that their WB-57 aircraft “does a lot of work with a variety of different customers from the government, from industry, from academia,” including the Defense Department. “Anybody who needs to fly something high,” he said.

According to NASA’s website, the WB-57s have been flying research missions “since the early 1970s and continue to be an asset to the scientific community with professional, reliable, customer-oriented service designed to meet all scientific objectives.” A government website devoted to the converted old bombers describes a mission in Costa Rica to “explore the tropical upper troposphere and lower stratosphere” and another to collect cosmic dust from comets and asteroids in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, among many others. A variation of the aircraft was used to gather air samples from above-ground nuclear tests conducted “by other countries,” according to an Air Force fact sheet.
But as War Is Boring noted, the military may be interested in more than just scientific objectives, as the plane can fly nearly as high as the famed U2 spy plane and carry more weight – including an array of high-tech imagery and communications equipment.

One previous mission was described by Arati Prabhakar, the head of the military’s fringe-tech specialists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, to the House subcommittee on Intelligence earlier this year as a kind of mass, three-dimensional terrain mapping.
She said that a WB-57 was deployed to Afghanistan for a few months beginning in late 2010 and “collected” over 70,000 square kilometers of “terrain data” – information on about 10 percent of the country – using a system called High-Altitude LIDAR Operations Experiment (HALOE). LIDAR, or Light Detection and Ranging, uses light from a “pulsed laser” to create “precise, three-dimensional information about the shape of the Earth and its surface characteristics,” according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
“HALOE provided forces in Afghanistan with unprecedented access to high-resolution 3D data, and it collected orders of magnitude faster and from much longer ranges than conventional methods,” Prabhakar said, according to written testimony. Given 90 days, Prabhakar said she was confident the system could’ve mapped half the country.
A civilian who worked with the WB-57 program in Afghanistan, and who asked not to be identified due to the sensitive nature of some of the WB-57’s missions, told ABC News the plane is highly-customizable, using sometimes “one-off” configurations depending on the objectives of the project.

Whereas unmanned and manned surveillance platforms are often used for specific intelligence-gathering missions or to help put together individual “target packages” for U.S. special operations, the civilian guessed the WB-57 was in Africa to give the military a more “big picture, high-altitude, lower-level resolution” look at the landscape in the region -– like it did in Afghanistan -– for use whenever called upon in future operations there.
But the civilian admitted it was just a guess and the WB-57 can carry any number of sensor payloads. And for now, the military isn’t saying any more.
Whatever the mission was, it appears to be over. According to NASA, all three WB-57s are now back in the U.S., with their status listed as “inactive.”

    Today, I received the following video in an email. The sender was almost apoplectic. Doing a quick search "NASA War Documents Exposed", a boatload of conspiracy sites popped up with the below video. Seems to be fairly new "revelation". At the site, I found the following:

    Anyone have any knowledge about these claims? They sound completely preposterous but I'd like to have something concrete to rebut this stuff. It's all about hyper weapons that supposedly the U.S. govt is planning to use on it's own people. Unless she's a academy award winning actor, the lady who has this document appears to believe every word of it.

    At is the following regarding this new revelation.

    Here's a copyable copy (113 pages):
    View attachment future-strategic-issues-and-warfare.pdf

    And a condensed version (48 pages)
    View attachment FutureWarfare.pdf

    Which gives background:

    All it is is speculation about what the future of warfare MIGHT be like, so that that the military can think about what they might want to do. There's no plan in there. It's all just speculation.

    Here's a similar thing that Bushnell did for the navy. (

    And again, it's 12 years old!

    seems a little out there even for me , the document kinda looks fraudulent IMO . Makes for a good sci fi movie , Probably the alien shape shifters have taken over our government and need to exterminate us humans so they can populate our planet since they destroyed their planet and need a warmer earth since they are really lizard people ? :)

    The document is real, it's a real NASA document made for the military. But it's not secret. And it does not contain anything like what she thinks it does. She's just not understanding it.

    The phrase "Enemy After Next", is a good key phrase for this kind of thing. Search for it, and you will many similar books and documents.

    just .mil sites:"enemy+after+next"

    Related papers:"enemy after next"

    It's nothing new, and it's not a plan.

    Well if it isn't Mick West, the same Mick West of Morgellons Watch no doubt, well Mick we know we can't believe anything you say because it's your job to discredit and debunk the facts and evidence because your a [...]. So what do you have to say about the scientists now publishing peer reviewed studies on morgellons, huh Mick what do you have to say? I see this document as a road map to the complete takeover of the U.S. and the powers that be have been following it to the letter, take it serious folks, it is real and it is happening right now.

    Oh and forgive me for not being POLITE, I'll try harder next time, Not.

    Regarding this document, read through it people, very closely, and you will find that a great deal of this stuff is playing out, for instance the document references
    Venezuelan Equine Encephalomyelitis

    lists relevant factors like "tested on humans", "no treatment available" and what do you know just this year there's an outbreak of this virus
    The powers that be are using this document in some capacity, it's obvious.

    Steve, I don't ridicule people with Morgellons. In fact a large part of my writing on the subject has been to encourage people NOT to ridicule them. I think it's very important to treat any ill person with great respect. I also think their needs are best served by working with their doctors to address their symptoms on an individual basis. Morgellons is essentially a broad list of symptoms that can be caused by many conditions.

    I'm not going to get into any debates with you Mick, about Morgellons or anything else because Information Warfare (IW) is your area of expertise, you get paid to do what you do. Interesting how this document references the use of IW under the heading Typical Scenario- "Take Down" of the U.S. by 10 people for <$10M. Even more interesting is the word usual in quotes. That implies that it is commonplace for our government to utilize this tactic on the citizens of the U.S., it's enemy. Your duties are as defined by Wikipedia , "the spreading of propaganda or disinformation to demoralize or manipulate". I have no doubt that you are operating in this capacity Mick, what I don't know, and surely never will, is how deeply your connected to this megaconspiracy. I'm sure you'll be all over my use of this term but it is what it is, a conspiracy invoving the Bildeberg group, the world banks, the CIA, the Trilateral Commision, current and former presidents, and no telling how many other groups or agencies whose actions have all been orchestrated by the Illuminati, there you go Mick, have a hayday with that one. One question though, are you yourself a Satanist like the Illuminati?

    Does anyone care to count how many questions Steve managed to beg in that one paragraph?

    Tell us Steve - do you believe everything you read, or just the more far out theories?

    From your link:

    There is no text reading "tested on humans" or "no treatment available" at that link.

    According to the wiki page on the disease the virus was isolated in 1938 - so it has been known since before then, and outbreaks occur fairly regularly.

    And there IS a vaccine available

    Can you explain any link to any conspiracy??

    Look, I really have no desire to waste my time by debating people that have agendas. I ended up here by chance while researching the document referenced in this thread and I found it VERY interesting that good old Mick West was at the helm. He was a very hated man within the morgellons community, there were people then accusing him of having an agenda, the intentional spreading of misinformation for whatever reason, I didn't buy into the conspiracy stuff back then, in fact I often ridiculed those that solicited it, I figured Mick was just a guy that, like myself, liked to argue his position and one that needed to come to his own conclusion after a review of all the facts. Finding Mick West at the helm of a site dedicated to “debunking” however is now making me reconsider his motive, why would a guy who made enough money to retire at an early age spend his free time in front of a computer accomplishing nothing by arguing with people he thinks are crazy? This just doesn’t make sense, unless of course he has an agenda.

    To all those regular people out there, those who don’t get paid to discredit the truth, I have this to say, the USA, as well as much of the rest of the world, is facing an extremely dangerous enemy that not only threatens our freedom but our very lives. This enemy is deeply embedded within our society as well as in other countries and is actively working towards complete world domination. For one to even have the ability to entertain this idea they have to allow their mind the freedom to think. If there’s any chance whatsoever that 9-11 was orchestrated by members of our government wouldn’t it be worth an hour of your time to see the evidence so that you can make an informed decision? I encourage everyone to rethink 9-11 by going to AE911truth and watching the free one hour version of "Experts Speak Out". This video is supported by nearly 2000 professional Architects, Engineers, and Demolition experts, the very people that design as well as destroy high rise buildings, just listen to what they have to say, what have you got to lose. The uncovering of this lie is so extremely important that everyone needs rethink 9-11, for the sake of humanity. I'm not going to waste time responding to anyone that hasn't watched the video so don't bother wasting your time trying to discredit me. If after watching the video you wish discuss the information contained in it I'll be happy to reply, after all these people are experts and unless you are an expert in the field of engineering, architecture, or demolition your opinion is not going to count for shit.

    Steve no one here is getting paid. Why are you attacking us instead of the research?

    You post false information and then refused to back it up, choosing instead to attack others.

    Until someone can explain answer these questions:

    1)WHO planted the explosives? Controlled demolition of a building is not something that an untrained (untrained in Controlled demolition) person can do. It would have needed a crew from one of the companies

    2)HOW did they get the type of access needed to plant hundreds of explosives?

    3)WHAT was used to protect the explosives from the fires and WHAT was used to detonate them?

    I see no reason to waste my time on listening or watching or reading about an impossible scenario. I prefer well written science fiction for that.

    Maybe you are impressed with that 2000 number, I'm not, there are hundreds of thousands of professional Engineers and architects. As to 'demolition experts' I don't know why they are considered, unless they are in the field of Controlled Demolition. Others are like asking your ophthalmologist for advice on heart transplant surgery. Not their field.

    I deal in FACTS not opinions, and not agendas.

    Common tactics you guys are using here, it’s obvious you didn’t watch the video, instead of discussing the material presented in this video you try to focus attention away from it. But you should have asked me something a little harder to answer.

    What I am presenting here is my own opinion and does not reflect the view of the organization that I have promoted on this site.

    Who Planted explosives, how did they get access, how were they protected from the fires, and how did they detonate them?

    Seriously? How did they protect them from fire? That’s a lame question, you could build a box in your garage capable of withstanding the hottest fire possible when considering the fuel available in those fires. Jet fuel, which is basically kerosene right, doesn’t burn very hot. Lightweight, fireproof boxes capable of withstanding those fires can be readily purchased.

    These boxes could have been pre-assembled with explosives and wireless detonators and labeled with directions for their placement. Personnel with no expertise in the field of explosives could have placed those boxes. The elevator shafts would be strategic points to place theme, this would have provided access to the primary support structure of the building and it would have facilitated and concealed their placement because they are out of view,.

    Who had daily, unrestricted access to the elevator shafts, the elevator mechanics.

    Why should the elevator mechanics be suspect?

    Even though the emergency plan that the Port Authority had in place at the WTC called for the elevator mechanics to stay and help with rescues by assisting police, fire, and other rescue personnel, all of the 80 elevator mechanics that were inside the World Trade Center on 9-11 left the buildings on their own, without instructions from police or fire officials, and did not return.

    Now it’s my turn to ask the question, how did WTC 7 freefall for over a hundred feet meeting no resistance whatsoever (which is not disputed by the official story) if the structural failure began at an isolated point? The remainder of the structure would have had to of failed simultaniously or would have had to ceased to exist at that very moment of initial failure. This is a violation of the laws of physics. Yeah I bet you won’t even try to answer that one will you?

    No more games children, either address what is presented in the video or I'm not going to play anymore. This crap about you dealing in facts and not opinions is so transparent that it's pathetic, the facts are what your affraid of so all you have is your opinion.

    Steve, if anyone was paying be to debunk, I wouldn't be sitting in Dallas with a wet towel over my shoulders, because it is over 100 degrees and I can't afford AC. I am an artist with a science background.
    I would also have a computer and a fast internet. With my computer, a 5 min YT will take me 8-10 to watch. If you want to PAY me for 2 hrs of my time. I would bill you at my middle rate--$24 a hour (the economy killed the art jewelry market).

    Your answers to my questions show that you seemed to spent all your time listening to other 'believers', instead of going out and finding out what it takes to implode a building.

    I have done that, not from government sites but from the companies that do it, from sites that post science and not bunk.

    "The expert" is Dennis P. McMahon - lawyer, and self appointed "debunker of debunkers".

    He never did offer any actual evidence (other than his opinion) - which amounts to " the collapse was from the bottom up, just like I would have done a demolition".

    and while it is true you would do a demolition like this, it does not mean a building cannot collapse like that without demolition - a conclusions reached by "the official story", which found the collapse started on floor 13.

    Last I heard Aeronautics and nuclear engineering wasn't actually civil engineering, and neither is an "explosives technician" en expert on demolition - or buildings, or anything else except handling explosives.

    Would you like to summarise what they actually say now that we've gotten past the appeals to authority?

    BTW Bob Bowman is considered a US Govt "psyop agent" by some conspiracy theorists - eg see here - or for someone lambasting him for lacking "empirical evidence" after having him speak at a couple of events.

    also of course this should probably be shifted to the 9/11 forum and off this thread.....
