"This new book by Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel is an important attempt to prepare us for what will one day be inevitable: an open understanding that we are not alone. Not in this universe, and not even on Planet Earth."
--Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D, Apollo 14 Astronaut
"I've imagined this future many times, but these guys actually wrote the book on it! Zabel and Dolan have brilliantly created a compelling blend of history and informed speculation that makes their exciting world seem like tomorrow's news today. Don't dare miss it! 'Nuff said."
--Stan Lee, Creator, Spiderman, X-Men, Avengers
"What if the UFO cover-up is real and what if it ended? After Disclosure poses this fascinating question and looks at the societal consequences of such a revelation. Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel have produced a thoughtful and provocative analysis that goes well beyond the usual scope of books on UFOs and alien life."
--Nick Pope, Former Chief of UK Ministry of Defence UFO Desk
"You may not have ever considered what life will be like after the reality of UFOs becomes publicly known. But Richard M. Dolan and Bryce Zabel have. Their book is absorbing and thought provoking. Don't miss it."
--Jim Marrs, New York Times Best Selling Author of Crossfire
"Considering the overwhelming evidence that Earth is being visited by alien spacecraft and that many intelligence agencies and military groups have known this to be true for some time, we certainly need to consider the serious question of what happens when Disclosure actually occurs. This book by Zabel and Dolan is the first in-depth attempt to answer that question. It is long overdue and sets a high standard of discussion about this very complex issue. Well worth reading."
--Stanton T. Friedman, MSc., Nuclear physicist, author of Top Secret/Majic, Science Was Wrong
"As a physician, researcher, and creative writer, I stand on the shoulders of others to see and climb the next mountain. A.D. After Disclosure is a brilliant, enjoyable primer that holds a feast of ideas that will make any audience think and wonder. This work offers a place to stand where others may take up the challenge and travel to places none of us could conceive. Richard and Bryce have performed a great service both to our culture and that of the 'Others.'"
--Dr. Jeffrey Galpin, Infectious Disease Specialist, Molecular Biologist, AIDS Researcher
"Disclosure, the formal acknowledgment by the world's governments of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race, is inevitable. So was this how-to book on what to do when a new world begins."
--Stephen Bassett, Executive Director, Paradigm Research Group

But the alien thing per se isn't what makes this book totally implausible. What makes it ridiculous is the central premise, not that aliens/visitors are here but that GOVERNMENT(S) would ever "disclose" that. A presidential press conference? That is completely idiotic. What POSSIBLE motive would the government ever have to "disclose" anything like that? What exactly is in it for them? And then the idea that the mil.gov or the president would order the indefinite closure of banks and Wall St. on the Big D Day - what the frick?? Why would the Prez damage his own pals, paymasters and polo buddies like that? Huh? Totally nutso.
All the speculation about so-called "trigger events" that are supposedly going to force the government's hand - leaks of documents, deathbed confessions of supposed insiders, mass sightings over cities, recover of physical artifacts and so on - these are mostly things that have already happened. That kind of stuff is going to force the mil.gov's hand? Totally absurd.
They'll just yawn and roll over. Until and unless a 'Day the Earth Stood Still' thing happens right out on the White House lawn. And at that point it won't really be an official "Disclosure", in the sense of this book, at all.
He says the President will come to the irresistible conclusion that "the people have a right to know". What a crock! Before sitting down at the keyboard these authors should have asked themselves: Will there ever come a day when the President will say to himself: "the people have a right to know TODAY" (not tomorrow, or some other day). The answer is clearly "no". That day will never come. There is nothing in it for him. And even if he "disclosed" in some form, why would he expect anybody to believe the mil.gov spin on it, given that by definition he be admitting that same mil.gov has lied about it for decades? Nothing in it for them whatsoever.
Get through your heads guys: politicians and governments operate for the short-term power and profit of themselves and their tight circle of buddies - always and only. Thus has it always been, thus shall it ever be. And until you can make a clear case as to how "Disclosure" could possibly serve that one Prime Directive, do us a favor and don't write any more books.
But it doesn't even have that fun infectious enthusiasm of jazzed-up teen fanboys.
This book is depressing and boring. It's also riddled with factual errors and egregiously bad logic. It's hopelessly naïve.
Perhaps worst of all, it offers nothing in terms of new, inside information on the UFO issue. The rare tidbits it does offer are so stupid and laughable they're like something out of a Saturday Night Live skit. Here, I'll give you an example:
The authors offer:
A British "scientist," whom they do not name, says that his grandfather was a bodyguard for Winston Churchill during World War II. This bodyguard managed somehow to eavesdrop on Churchill having a top-level meeting with General Dwight Eisenhower. This bodyguard overhears their private conversation in which Churchill tells a story - whom he heard from someone else -- about a military pilot whose aircraft was buzzed for a few minutes by a UFO.
This bodyguard then blabs it to his daughter -- who is then age 9 -- yes, he tells his 9-year-old details of a private meeting between the Prime Minister and the Supreme Military Commander of WWII Europe.
Then - years later - eventually -- this daughter grows up, gets married and finally gives birth to "the scientist" who one day hears the story from his mother - you know, the story she heard at age 9 from her loose-lipped eavesdropping bodyguard dad -- who overheard two leaders of the Free World discuss a second-hand report from an anonymous World War II pilot who saw a UFO.
More years go by during which time the boy grows up, apparently goes through years of college - and at last becomes "a scientist" - and voilà! -his story can finally be told! His information finally trickles into this book after the authors read it in -- wait for it - wait for it - a British 'Red Top' tabloid, The Daily Mail!
The Daily mail, a paper known for its sensationalism and fondly referred to by local Brits as "The Daily FAIL"!
Woooo-hoooo!!!! Take that, skeptics!
Speaking of newspapers and journalism, the authors' understanding of the media and the role of the press in society is abysmally simplistic.
On the one hand:
In typical conspiracy theory fashion, they maintain that a significant portion of those in positions of media power are on the payroll of the CIA, or some other nefarious government black-ops service. Hand-in-hand with government spooks, and with pockets full of payola cash, these paid-off media operatives are expertly killing key stories, and also seeding well-placed disinformation stories to masterfully social engineer the perceptions of the public on the UFO issue. Yes! It's that easy!
On the other hand:
They repeatedly accuse the press of being "lazy," "too timid," "hysterical," "asleep at the switch," "unwilling to challenge or confront powerful people" - in short, a gaggle of incompetent, pandering, lazy boobs who would rather stick to the easy stuff, you know, like the topics that shape people's daily lives, such as crime, the economy, covering local school boards and city council meetings, transportation, poverty, social injustice- the distracted lazy bums!
Dolan and Zabel want it both ways - when they need the media to be a powerful, organized, efficiently competent manipulator of the minds of an entire nation, then the media is an entity of frightening power, efficiency and intelligence. But when they want to moan about the lack of media attention to the UFO issue, the media then becomes a "lazy," "timid," "unwilling," and "asleep at the switch" -- a mass of bungling gomers who helplessly pander and suck up to powerful government agents.
But notice when the authors need to provide a citation for one of their claims, they gladly pluck an item from a cheesy mainstream media British tabloid and serve it up to their readers.
The authors also pass on a dubious bit of information which is often repeated but which has been thoroughly debunked as -- if not untrue - at least improvable- and this misinformation is that former CIA director William Colby director said, "The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media."
Again, Colby never said this, it has been all-but proven that he never said it, and those who care to Google this issue and check on it will see that I am right - and the authors should have Googled it and checked it too - but either they didn't, or didn't care to, but were happy to pass on this disinformation anyway.
Okay, but now wait a minute - don't the authors cite an excellent Rolling Stones article by the mighty Carl Bernstein who showed in great detail how the CIA once recruited reporters and infiltrated all of the major news institutions, including the New York Times, Time Magazine and others? And don't the reporters themselves admit - even the owners and editors of these major news organizations admit - that they had dozens of reporters on the CIA payroll?
Yes, but here are the facts: Those reporters were not involved in writing stories for consumption of the American public, or involved in shaping public opinions by seeding stories- stories that were dictated by CIA spies - and especially not stories about UFOs.
Rather, the CIA was using real reporters as covers to act as spies mostly to snoop on other governments around the world, especially the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The CIA was saying to reporters things like, "Hey, since you're going to Yugoslavia anyway to do a story about agriculture, will you check to see how many paved airports they have and how many Soviet aircraft you see while you're there, and let us know when you get back?"
Furthermore, when it became well-known that major media outlets were renting out reporters to act as part time information gatherers for the CIA, Congress objected to the practice and ordered that this kind of activity ended - which it did - some 35 years ago.
If you don't believe this, and if you still think the CIA has an iron grip on the American Press, then ask yourself:
* Why didn't the CIA stop the New York Times from publishing the Pentagon Papers, a devastating blow to the Vietnam War effort, and major embarrassment to the U.S.?
* Why didn't the CIA stop the Washington Post and New York Times from knocking off President Nixon himself, the Vice President and other top power brokers over the Watergate break-in scandal? Nixon as Commander In Chief and top guy of everything had the CIA at his bidding.
* Why didn't the CIA stop the Washington Star, New York Times from revealing the heinous Tuskegee Experiment scandal in which government creeps secretly infected black men with venereal disease so they could study them?
* Why didn't the CIA stop Rolling Stone from running Bernstein's CIA/journalists Cold War connections article?
* Why didn't the CIA stop the New York Times from breaking the Iran-Contra Affair, which was partly a CIA operation?
* Why didn't the CIA stop the media when it uncovered and published the story of Nixon's Secret Bombing of Cambodia, My Lai Massacre, CIA involvement in Bay of Pigs Invasion, 9/11 government incompetence?
* Why didn't the CIA stop Dana Priest of The Washington Post for her persistent, painstaking reports that uncovered the secret CIA "black site" prisons in foreign countries and other controversial features of the government's counter-terrorism campaign?
* Why didn't the CIA stop Barton Gellman of The Washington Post for his authoritative and provocative coverage which blew the lid off the lie that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, embarrassing the CIA to a huge extent, and revealing the CIA as incompetent?
Yea, verily, so it would seem that, despite what author Dolan and Zabel would have you believe, the CIA is not as all-powerful, and so in control of the press as they say. Also there are clearly a lot of reporters out there who are hungry, eager, unstoppable and constantly driving hard at the hoop, lusting after fame, a Pulitzer Prize and the truth -- and they have nailed the CIA and embarrassed it again and again, decade after decade, on the very biggest stories.
Yet, the suggestion in this book is that there is not a single journalist - among many thousands - who is willing to dig deep enough to find out the truth about what the government knows about UFOs and alien technology - that all the reporters are either "under control and paid off" and/or "too lazy."
Yeah right. What a crock.
Most importantly, the amazingly out of touch, ready to smirk and ridicule, news media "experts" need to read this. They also need to learn to exercise their immense Constitutionally derived, First Amendment Rights and follow due diligence on this subject. They need to remove their heads from the sands of government lies they've been spoon fed for decades and do their jobs with respect to this subject. What are they afraid of?
