What happened to Dr. Lachezar Filipov, who was the number two man in the Bulgarian Space Research Institute, which is the Bulgarian equivalent of NASA, may explain why disclosure did not occur in the United States on Nov. 27, 2009, as was predicted.
Dr. Filipov was a space physicist and member of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) with extensive credentials. He gave a statement to the Bulgarian press on Nov. 23, 2009. Within hours it was in English translation across the Internet.
According to Kevin Smith, a Phoenix radio talk show host who spoke to Dr. Filipov the next day, Dr. Filipov said that extraterrestrials are real and were among us all the time, without us recognizing them. Dr. Filipov said that “we” are in constant communication with them.
The press report, which subsequently disappeared from the Internet, stated thart there had been a media presentation at which several of the alien species attended and answered over thirty questions put to them by a panel of BAS personnel.
The report was carried by Associated Press.
When Smith contacted Dr. Filipov by phone, he asked him to appear on his show, to which the Bulgarian scientist enthusiastically agreed. He told Smith that, if Smith came to Bulgaria, Filipov would show him what they knew.
However, within 24 hours, Filipov had disappeared. He had given Smith his private cellphone number to contact him, but Smith was unable to reach Filipov on his private or office phone. He concluded that someone had gotten to Dr. Filipov.
Dr. Filipov remained inaccessible for about ten days. Then a Croatian news station arranged an interview with him at the BAS building in Sofia but they said they could not use the footage because Dr. Filipov appeared intoxicated.
Smith viewed the nineteen-minute interview with a career military counter-intelligence agenct. Smith himself had a background in law enforcement and was certified to detect intoxication. Both men say Filipov was not intoxicated and concluded that Dr. Filipov had been subjected to sleep deprivation.
Sleep deprivation was one of the favorite techniques of the former Bulgarian equivalent of the KGB, the state security agency.
While the Bulgarian state security police had disbanded, Smith estimates that 90% of the foreign ministry were former agents. The major media are also owned by former members of the state security service.
The Bulgarian media subsequently reported only that Filipov said ETs were real and that his sources were crop circles and similar phenmoena.
When the Croatian crew asked Filipov to tell them about the ETs and whether he was meeting with them, his answer suggested that he had been tortured. He said “that is information that, if I tell you they, will kill me.”
Smith concludes that only the state security service would have the power and intention to make this threat.
Smith recommends that the whole world keep their eyes on Dr. Filipov. He concludes that Filipov’s treatment pretty well demonstrates that what the scientist said was true.
So why did disclosure not happen in the U.S. on Nov. 27? My own suspicion is that the fact that the date was exposed before the event led to a situation where the safety of those involved could not be guaranteed.
The treatment of Dr. Filipov, who did disclose the existence of extraterrestrials is, I think, proof that the “powers that be” in the world do not want the matter publicized.
