Between February 15 and March 26, the Walt Disney Company presented a syndicated one-hour TV special on UFOs and human-alien contact entitled "Alien Encounters From New Tomorrowland." Introduced by Disney CEO Michael Eisner and hosted by well-known television actor Robert Urich, the program was intended partly to announce the lavish new "Alien Encounters" ride at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. But nearly the whole hour was devoted to basic information on UFOs and claims of alien contact, including substantial information on the government cover-up of UFO data. Though several well-known UFO researchers such as Budd Hopkins and Kevin Randle were included in the program, most of the narration came from Urich. As such, a number of extremely direct claims had the appearance of Disney's endorsement. It is not clear whether this was simply "Show Biz" or something more significant. But to any viewer not inclined to a conspiratorial view of the UFO scene, the program would probably have seemed like a completely factual presentation. Here are some direct quotes from the program, all spoken by Robert Urich: INTRO sequence, over various UFO photos and film: "This is not swamp gas. It is not a flock of birds. This is an actual spacecraft from another world, piloted by alien intelligence, one sighting from tens of thousands made over the last fifty years on virtually every continent on the globe. Intelligent life from distant galaxies is now attempting to make open contact with the human race. And tonight, we'll show you the evidence... "Alien ships seem to arrive in waves, and if the last few years are any indication, planet Earth is experiencing a tsunami of sightings... In the last few months of 1994 and lately in 1995, Gulf Breeze, Florida has been ground zero for alien encounters. Especially during the day, extraterrestrial craft have become common ornaments in the uneasy skies....You would think these alien sightings would be front- page news. So why have they received almost no national attention? The answer is simple. For governments determined to maintain their authority, extraterrestrial contact is pure dynamite.... "Why have aliens chosen to visit our small blue planet, hidden on the distant fringes of an insignificant star cluster? Well, we invited them here...Most alien activity on earth in this century seems to have been sparked by the single most profound technological achievement in human history...But what the world didn't know in 1945 was that the atomic bomb's brilliant burst of energy would also be mankind's cosmic calling card, announcing to the universe that a technological society had evolved on a small blue planet in the backwaters of the stars...So as the world celebrated the war's end in 1945, aliens who heard man's atomic trumpet were already charting their course toward earth, responding to our open invitation.... "More than one alien craft crashed and was recovered for secret U.S. military research. The most famous case took place in July of 1947 just outside the community of Roswell, New Mexico -- famous, because local officials openly admitted they had retrieved an alien ship before their commanders instructed them to keep the story confidential.... This is the actual site where the Roswell saucer was discovered, along with the bodies of three extraterrestrial missionaries who didn't service the collision. The debris and the dead were impounded and taken away for top secret study, while a classified investigative committee called the Majestic Twelve was organized by President Truman, and a government cover-up was initiated with a calculated disinformation campaign.... "Indications are that government, military and scientific leaders will soon release nearly a half-century of official documentation of ongoing alien encounters on earth. Perhaps they feel it would be too embarrassing NOT to reveal the truth, before the truth reveals itself.... "Every year, NASA routinely propels about two dozen astronauts into a low earth orbit aboard the space shuttle, a loud, lumbering, somewhat primitive rocket ship. But most Americans will likely explore outer space aboard crafts of alien origin. Statistics indicate a greater probability that you will experience extraterrestrial contact in the next five years than the chances that you will win a state lottery. But how do you prepare for such an extraordinary event? "Here in the New Tomorrowland at Disney World, scientists and Disney engineers have brought to life a possible scenario that helps acclimate the public to their inevitable alien encounter...." Final note: Scenes of the new Disney World ride emphasized the "extra-terror-estrial" quality of the experience, as both technology and alien life forms run amok. Overall, Disney's liberal use of terms such as "Sinister" and "Terrifying" seemed aimed at putting a decidedly negative spin on human-alien encounters. ==+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++== "FREE MONTH" MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM EXTENDED TO APRIL 15 It's still possible for you to join ISCNI and get your first month free of charge.

ISCNI*Flash thanks firstname.lastname@example.org (James Sutton) for forwarding this latest information.] On Sunday, March 26, CNN announced on Headline News that in August of this year at a UFO convention to be held in England a 16 mm film of an alien autopsy filmed by the U.S. military from a 1947 UFO crash in New Mexico will be shown to the public. The film is also said to show wreckage of the craft. No further information was given on CNN. The announcement was made between sports and entertainment news. However, similar stories were found in a number of newspapers around the country on the same day. These stories were apparently based on the following press release (original source not known). Copyright 1995 The Press Association Limited Press Association Newsfile March 26, 1995, Sunday SECTION: HOME NEWS LENGTH: 429 words HEADLINE: UFO EXPERTS TO SEE TOP-SECRET 'DEAD ALIENS' FILM A top-secret film allegedly showing dead aliens will be screened for the first time anywhere in the world this summer - in Britain. It will also form the basis of a sensational BBC TV documentary due to be screened in August. The 91-minute film, to be shown to an international audience of UFO spotters at a two-day conference at Sheffield Hallam University, has been classified as top secret for almost 50 years. It was shot by U.S. government officials in the desert of New Mexico, allegedly after a flying saucer crash-landed in 1947. U.S. Air Force officials sealed off the site and the film, shot by military cameramen, was immediately classified. UFO experts claim the truth has been covered up ever since. But the 16mm black and white silent film, shot on 14 reels, was copied by a former military cameraman, now 82 and still living in America, who believed the cover-up was wrong and that the evidence should be publicly examined. He passed it to British TV documentary film maker Ray Santilli - who was in America making a documentary about Elvis Presley. The film is alleged to show scientists examining a creature laid on a slab inside a tent at the crash site, guarded by military police. Scientists carry out an autopsy on the alien body and examine tissue samples. It is also said to show part of the spaceship wreckage - allegedly made from a material that could not be burned, dented or cut. Experts believe the cover-up was ordered to give U.S. scientists a chance to try to copy the engineering. The UFO conference where it will be screened in August is likely to attract more than 500 enthusiasts from as far afield as Russia and South Africa. Conference organizer Philip Mantle of the British UFO Research Association said: "We have already had the film checked out by Kodak who confirm it is 50 years old, and we now plan to have it examined by film experts at the university." Mr. Mantle, director of investigations for the UFO association, added: "I have seen one seven-minute reel. The film is clear and very intriguing. "Of course, any film or picture can be faked, but if this is a hoax, a lot of people were involved because they can be clearly seen on screen, and by now we might have expected that one of them would have let the cat out of the bag. "Our intention is to show the film and then Mr. Santilli, who is convinced it is genuine, will speak about the film. Then people will have to make up their own minds. "This film has never had a public screening before in the world and is already creating intense interest." ==+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++== ISCNI BOOKSTORE TO BE RUN BY BLUE WATER PUBLISHING In a deal finalized on March 30, ISCNI and Oregon-based Blue Water Publishing have agreed that the ISCNI Bookstore will be operated from Blue Water's facility.

It airs every Sunday night from 7pm to 10pm (Pacific time) and is currently heard on 101 radio stations nationwide. ISCNI faculty member Linda Moulton Howe does a short "update" report at the beginning of every "Dreamland" broadcast. If you want to know the station nearest you that carries "Dreamland," the number to call is: 503-664-8829. ==+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++== STRANGE HORSE DEATH IN SALMON, IDAHO by Linda Moulton Howe [Editor's Note: The following report is among the most recent of many gathered by researcher and ISCNI faculty member Linda Moulton Howe. Linda's research has established strong links between unusual animal deaths involving surgical mutilation, and possible alien activity on the earth. Linda will teach a four week course in the ISCNI Academy, starting Monday, April 3. (See next story)] Bill Hill was a police officer in Peoria, Illinois for twenty-five years and then retired to the mountain wilderness of Salmon, Idaho. He purchased some horses for his ranch which stretches along a dead-end road. There is no traffic because there is no way to go beyond his property. On January 12, 1995, he bought a healthy, young male buckskin. Then fourteen days later, he found the horse lying dead three hundred feet from his house on two inches of fresh snow. "I could not understand what I was looking at," Mr. Hill told me. "There were no tracks around the horse, no signs of struggle, and no blood. Yet, a large section of hide had been cut from the belly taking the surface skin of the testicles and penis with it, but leaving the organs intact without the surface skin. On one side of the neck, there was a large hole that went in about two to three inches. The hole was filled with blood, but nothing was leaking onto the snow. And steam was rising from the wounds. So I must have come upon the horse soon after he was killed and cut up." Mr. Hill called the sheriff's office and a veterinarian. At first it was assumed the neck hole had been caused by a bullet. However, the veterinarian confirmed there was no bullet and that "nothing was broken up inside the neck." Mr. Hill said that when he asked the veterinarian about the wounds, she answered, "I have never seen anything like this before and I don't have any answers for you." ==+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++===+++== ISCNI ACADEMY FEATURES HOWE & TURNER IN APRIL The ISCNI Academy proudly announces two classes in April featuring well-know researchers Linda Moulton Howe and Dr. Karla Turner. Both classes start in the first week of April and run four weeks. Academy classes are free of charge to all ISCNI members, including those joining through our "FIRST MONTH FREE" program. ISCNI also plans to add one or two shorter classes in the later part of April, and one or two special guest live events. Please check under "Announcements from ISCNI" in the ISCNI Forum for further details during the next ten days. A description of the Howe and Turner classes follows: Class #6: "1994 Animal Mutilation Research Grant: Summary of Case Studies" Presented by Linda Moulton Howe Four Mondays: April 3, 10, 17, and 24; starts 9pm EST (6pm PST) Working under a research grant, Linda Moulton Howe and pathologist/hematologist John Altshuler, MD, in association with a number of veterinarians and veterinary pathologists, undertook extensive medical and scientific studies of unusual animal deaths that fell into the mutilation category during 1994. This course will review some of the best hard physical data and eyewitness testimony from that research, including evidence of anomalous energies and unidentified aerial objects at mutilation sites. Class #7: "Transformation 101 -- Emergent Implications of Abduction" Presented by Dr. Karla Turner, Ph.D. Four Wednesdays: April 5, 12, 19, and 26; starts 9pm EST (6pm PST) Two intriguing questions to emerge from abduction research concern the degree of awareness of alien encounters at both the individual level and at the larger level of society. For the individual abductee, the data show that most abductees have had experiences since childhood, yet more often than not, they don't become consciously aware of these events until adulthood, usually after some 'triggering' event occurs. So the first question is: Why are abductees not more consciously aware of these events throughout their lives? For society in general, there has also been a rapidly growing awareness of the 'alien' presence and activities in recent years. Yet some of the data explored by Vallee and others suggest that these activities have been going on with humans for a very long time. Still, such activities and reports are extremely rare in our histories and legends and do not seem to have had much effect on society in general in the past. So the second questions is: Why is this awareness so widespread today.? This course will explore possible explanations for the shift in awareness at both levels. The beginning hypothesis will be that our species may be in a transformative mode, either evolutionarily or artificially, moving into a form that will give us additional perceptive capabilities. Other hypotheses will also be explored. Does the abduction phenomenon signal breakthrough, breakdown, or something else altogether? A suggested reading list will be posted in the Quad class folder, inside the ISCNI Campus/Academy/Quad. Location will be posted in the Quad announcement folder. Space is limited for both classes. You must be an ISCNI member to participate, and ISCNI members can participate in any Academy course at no extra charge. Please register ASAP by sending email to Jim at ISCNIAcad. Courses consist of weekly live sessions, complimented by message board dialogue between live sessions. Location for live sessions will be posted in the Academy/Quad announcements folder. Feel free to either register as a student, or if you can't participate in the live sessions, as an auditor (live session logs will then be emailed to you). We're looking forward to welcoming you to these Academy classes. To register, email Jim at ISCNIAcad, subj: Regr.
