A.D. After Disclosure - When The Government Finally Reveals The Truth About Alien Contact by Richard Dolan & Bryce Zabel is a book for tomorrow, a book for the future. A.D. is a book that seeks to investigate the possible outcomes of what the nascent stages of disclosure will look like.

The book is based on the following premise:

"Most people now reject the theory that all sightings can be explained away as weather balloons, swamp gas, flares, ball lighting, or mass hallucination. Instead, they have settled on one conclusion: Some UFOs appear to be intelligently controlled physical craft of some kind from some place that is not here."[1]

With that premise firmly established, Dolan & Zabel seek to answer the following questions: Whenever secrecy on UFOs ends, what will take place? How will the world, and governments, react? How will commerce, business, religions, et al, all react?

The countless scenarios and implications abound, and that is why a book like this is needed and is carried out. Now, in attempt to prepare the world for what could ensue post-disclosure, the authors leave no stone unturned in the ramifications that will follow 'the day'. Sifting through everything from the events from the initial day thereon, the authors bring about rather sensible and grounded speculations on what the very first day might seem like.

Going back in time a bit, the authors also seek to reconstruct how entire secrecy structure began, how it remains, and what the cover-up looks like. From there, points for and points against disclosure gets sifted through by the authors as they attempt to engineer the mentality that those pulling the strings will have debating this trenchant issue. Covered also are moments in UFOlogy where it seemed like waves might have been made, and possible disclosure could have ensued, but ultimately failed. Thankfully, the book doesn't just stop there.

More importantly, also ruminated upon are the who 'they' are, the how, and what other intricacies are to be considered by the comptrollers in an effort to attempt to wipe the slate clean and begin anew. Also, the Breakaway Civilization is exampled in a couple of instances, as they are sure in large part, or somewhat responsible for this searing secrecy that's taken place since the late 40's and early 50's.

The blaring blowback that'll take place is covered from nigh every angle. Everything from panic, fear, truth commissions, changes in the energy paradigm, legal issues, media, economics, psychology, pop culture, and more, are all given at least a cursory glance as to how they might integrate into the whole avalanche of issues that will develop.

A notable factor examined is also the CIA and the mainstream media's role in making sure true investigations and news doesn't break to the masses. Of course, this wasn't anything too complex, since the mainstream media has been in bed with the CIA, as per Operation Mockingbird.

The authors note that:

"Some of this information came out during the 1970s, when the CIA admitted to having paid relationships with more than 400 mainstream American journalists. Consider the possibilities available to any person or group covertly employing 400 journalists. Although the CIA claimed it ended such relationships, it tacitly acknowledged the need to cultivate them in cases of national security...Former CIA Chief William Colby, a cold man who made his mark during the murderous Project Phoenix, who rose to the top of the Agency during the 1970s, and whose life ended in a boating "accident" on Potomac in 1995, once told a confident that every major media was covered by the long reach of the CIA."[2]

Such are some of the reasons why this information has never been given a fair shot. Of course, denial and ridicule became the M.O. du jour of the establishment of anybody that even dared question the subject of UFOs and anything paranormal.

After Disclosure also covers what type of political instability will ensue post-disclosure given how governments all over the world will be facing the wrath of the populace for having covered such a subject up for decades. The fury won't stop there, however. Academicians who didn't take the subject seriously and even ridiculed people, as well as psychologists who didn't take individuals allegations of disturbing incidents will also have to contend with an angry populace once the truth comes out full throttle.

Whenever the day comes, an endless tsunami of questions that will result, and tough questions at that. Especially considering very solid evidence that has been declassified in the past such that shows the US Government is taking this situation very seriously, and has for decades. Some of these include: 1949 FBI Memo, the 1954 Maxwell AFB Emergency Report, the 1947 Twining Memo, the 1966, Intrusion at Minot Air Force Base, the 1976 Tehran Encounter, the 1967 Malmstrom AFB Incident, and many more documents. These are all public record.

As individuals can gather, this subject, regarding whomever is behind the phenomena, is being taken extremely serious, as it should. The problem of the public is being told one thing, and behind the scenes something else, as many declassified documents show, is taking place.

This book really extends the breadth and scope of the analysis of a post-disclosure world in salient ways. It is a book that should be regarded seriously, just as the rest of Dolan's work, if for no other reason than the fact that immense evidence keeps growing that something is amyss. The odds that "nothing" is taking place keeps declining to zero with every new account, every new sighting, and every new issue that takes place with this phenomenal. The world has no reason to think this is ever going to stop. At least not anytime soon.

As humanity seeps again into space in the coming decades, more and more strange events will happen. Heck, we can already see how much NASA loves to whitewash documents and talk nonsense once anything of note happens. NASA will surely have to answer for a lot, especially if what individuals like Donna Hare, who was a former Disclosure Project witness, says is true."

As Dolan notes in his Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization book:

"She had a secret clearance during the early 1970s for NASA subcontractor Philco Ford, and was shown a satellite image of a distinct UFO. It was explained to her that this technician's job was to airbrush any evidence of UFOs out of photographs for NASA before they were made public. She also learned from other employees at the Johnson Space Center that some of the astronauts had seen extraterrestrial craft on the Moon. This was in the 1970s, after the moon landings had taken place. In Hare's words, "I believe there were three such craft on the Moon when they landed."[3]

With such evidence amassing, once one looks at the totality of it, longer time goes, the more complex this charged subject gets That said, we mustn't pretend that the comptrollers will just disclose for no reason. As the authors state, their hand will be forced somehow. There is no 'right' time. But when it happens, be prepared. But have no fear.

Sometime in the future, the day will come that some government will have to admit the truth in respects to extraterrestrial life being factual. Whenever that day comes, hysteria, panic, and speculation will fill the airwaves of every single media on the planet. When that happens, do you want to know what to expect, or not? If you do, get this book. That way, whenever whatever incident takes place happens, you will at least be ahead of the curve, and prepared for some of the probable circumstances that will follow. This is NOT said to cause fear, but to bring awareness of an issue that will change mankind forever.

More than anything, this book is a call to action, for everyone who has ever taken this subject seriously, or who has thought about it at length. The transformation that will take place of the planet [culturally, geopolitically, psychologically, emotionally, etc.] is something not to be treated in an askance manner, and should be discussed at length, even if it goes beyond people's comfort zones.

Whenever a paradigm shift is about to take place, most individuals can't see, or come to terms with what's about to happen. Thankfully, according to some polls most people believe in life out there, so a massive paradigm shift of 'life out there' should come as no surprise to many. Still, though, if humanity is to be a responsible race, and transition into the Space Age that is to come in the coming decades, it has to take subjects such as this seriously. This book helps greatly in that effort, because all the evidence points to humans not being alone.

If you've ever had a curious bone in your body about this subject, ruminate deeply upon getting this book. It really does provide the firmest ground upon which an individual may stand in such a tumultuous subject. The sooner individuals prepare for what's the come, the easier the transition will be.

A fictional account of disclosing the presence of aliens among us. When you look at history it's hard to believe there's not some validity to the claim that we have been visited by aliens. This book is very thought provoking in the matter of what could happen to our world when/if the government and secret-keepers come clean about evidence they have gathered. It gets a little long but it's actually very good and keeps it real. I enjoyed it a lot.

Well, it's been a long 50 years since the Air Force's disappointing response to UFOs in project Blue Book was published. And ten authors have shown that the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx are over 12,000 years old and built by extra-terrestrials. Half the population believes that UFOs are manned by alien beings. And finally, the Drake equation concerning the probability that there are 100 million intelligent civilizations in this galaxy is taking real meaning for humans. Why aren't they here? Because we have been ignoring all the massive amounts of evidence that they are. Uh oh, what does that mean for the future.

But, we have a real problem switching technologies from burning crude oil products and using only Tesla's early electric field generators to using zero point energy generators and propelling our vehicles with gravity drive engines. History shows us that rapid change has doomed most empires. The Chinese turned away from the challenge of foreign trade and were caught unaware by the British and subjugated for a hundred years. England was successfully raided by Vikings in the 800s and York became a Viking town. India was invaded and ruled for over 200 years by the British invaders until a political genius figured how to recover from that disruption of culture and nationality.

So, here we are, slowly getting poisoned by the use of numerous oil products and wondering when it's going to run out enough so we are forced to stop. We need someone to suggest how to provide a soft landing from the mess that we have created and limit the expected disruption around the world when ET's are acknowledged by our governments.

Well, this book provides such a scenario. We are capable of acknowledging that we are the new kids on the block and that the distant neighbors were around long before us. The moon is not a natural satellite and we really need to stop acting like we can just invade another country if it's name is Ukraine. We can learn to make healthy changes that assure our future and strive to become a class 1 civilization by making our world utilize renewable energy sources.

Actually, we don't have a choice. So, read the book and evolve properly in your thinking.

This book took but a couple of days for me to get through and I am about to re-read it. Given that the impetus for disclosure could more easily come from the "Others" than it could from our own leaders, the book shows just how willing these leaders are to play with fire, fire of the most dangerous kind. That they have gotten away with it as long as they have is indicative of a number of things, which one can read of in these pages. I have never read a book that is so sobering on such an important issue as this. Because of this book I have decided to step up my own efforts to be as ready as I can be for this day, and so that I can be of the most use to those who have never given this issue a moment of serious thought. It is for my friends, my family and the strangers with whom I must share the Post-Disclosure world that I see k to learn all I can about other people from other places who have chosen to come to the Earth. This IS more important than the atomic bomb, global warming, religious extremism and even the engagement of Sarah Palin's daughter. Regardless of where you come down on the issue, reading this book can only be a positive step for anybody, if for no other reason than to fine-tune your notion of how willing your leaders are to risk everything, even your life, for the privilege that comes with being "in the know".

This book not only goes through possible after-disclosure scenarios but speculates about what would bring forth disclosure in the first place. It asks the big philosophical questions in a 'page turning, I can't put this down' way, with all the variables at play weaved throughout its pages. I've read MANY of the books out there on ufos/ aliens, however this would be great for anyone, a novice or someone seasoned in the subject matter. I wish every world leader would read it! This one challenged my thinking!

I purchased this book on kindle over a year ago. I am about half way through. Its one of those books that just doesn't seem to flow or grab your attention. From the constant use of the same terms over and over again (others, paradigm, breakaway group,etc...) to the lack of drive towards an actual solution i find it to be a slow and boring read. Not to mention a lot of the material seems to be recycled from The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991 (UFOs and the National Security State). Maybe that book was meant to be a primer for this one, but i feel more like i paid for the same book twice. Take that info, sandwich it between a few new chapters and pictures...voila new book!

The book is a 'what if' about disclosure, using made up releases and press conferences to show how disclosure could happen, and what would happen in the aftermath. I love the premise and Dolan had a real chance to stand out and make a case for disclosure. Instead most of what i read supports the exact opposite- disclosure being a horrendous idea. Economic collapse, lawsuits, etc. just affirm the stance against any real evidence coming to light. Why would anyone, especially the US government, open itself to such a problem in our litigious environment?

I have made a promise to myself to finish this book soon since i paid ten bucks for it. Maybe the second half will take a swing for the better and ill upgrade my rating at the end. As of now i would pass on the book unless you are really out of UFO books to read, or are aware that this reads more like science fiction what if than a researched argument for disclosure.

We must understand and have an open mind for this reading. It's very well written and the information is very precis, I have used the internet to collaborate this information, it's right on. Names, dates, places, official investigation and with the use of the Freedom of Information Act by LBJ is a great help. I guess Wall Street, Religious people and society will be drenched in reality of what is coming when they read this book.

The reality, well, be it next week, five, ten or fourth years from now. It's not a question of "IF", its a question of when. Specifically when our government will acknowledge the truth. Some government already have. Making our government look ridicules.

Very well written. The author uses historical information to ask "What if" questions or pose possible out come scenarios. I found it interesting without a lot of the authors opinions instead he allows you to form your own. The book really is entertaining and makes you think.

As the author says, this is not a matter of "if", but more a matter of "when". When Disclosure does happen, it will rock our world. I think in a good way.

Thoughtful,provocative analysis by Richard Dolan, one of the most measured and exhaustive researchers of history of UFO"s, and Bryce Zabel, first writer elected as chairman/CEO of Academy of Television Arts and Sciences since Rod Serling.
"If "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' is a how-to book about what to do When the world ends, ["A.D."] is a how-to book on what to do when a new world begins.' --Stephen Bassett

I am not really a UFO believer, but as a thought experiment I found this book fascinating. It is well thought out and does a good job of considering the implications of a reveal by the government, aliens, ext of an et presence on earth. It takes a variety of factors ranging from religion to the singularity into account. Regardless of your personal belief (I am basically a curious non believer) this is an interesting read.
