Disclosing the Secret

By: Vincent Amato


First and foremost a deep debt of gratitude is extended to Col. Jesse Marcel Jr. (Ret) for granting permission for his family name to be the focus of this story. Col. Marcel (Jr.) joined the US Navy in 1962 and retired for the second time at the age of 60. Shortly after his 68th birthday he again came out of retirement to undertake yet another tour of duty in Iraq. There he served as a flight surgeon for the 189th Attack Helicopter Battalion flying 225 hrs of combat. He is, by every definition of the term, a true American hero.

If it were not for the tireless life’s work of noted physicist Stanton Friedman, who was the first to personally visit and interview Jesse’s father Col. Jesse Marcel Sr., then the incident that occurred out in the desert during that summer of 1947 may have never been brought to the public’s attention. His disciplined approach of only investigating verifiable facts has been the backbone of the historical events portrayed in Disclosing the Secret.

Also deserving of thanks are Travis Walton and Clifford Stone who had the courage to commit their personal experiences to print, and to Lucy Pringle for allowing me to republish her fantastic crop circle photo in the book.

My sincere appreciation to Jenny Scepanovic for being so thorough with her editing.

Thanks also to my devoted wife Linda for her support and for enduring my many late nights writing.

Finally my profound thanks to Dr. Steven Greer for his dedication to CSETI, his vision in driving the message of disclosure, and to his office for granting permission for his name, as well as his previous work on the Disclosure Project, to be a part of this story.


Make up your own mind.

Dedicated to Colonel Dr. Jesse Marcel Jr. (Ret.)



Fact 1

Since the 1940s over 100 US military personnel have gone on the record stating that nuclear weapons had been compromised by undefined craft. They have reported countless incidents of these vehicles hovering over (or manoeuvring near) missile launch sites, nuclear bomb manufacturing facilities, nuclear weapons laboratories and nuclear test ranges. These military personnel are witnesses of the highest caliber, as the US Government entrusted these individuals with the operations and control of their country’s own weapons of mass destruction. They had been thoroughly scrutinized, and highly trained, before being permitted to serve for their country. Their detailed testimonies are considered to be accurate documentation of witnessed events.

Fact 2

In Charles Darwin’s work On the Origin of Species he hypothesized:

If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous successive slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.

(Darwin, 1859, p. 219)

There are, in fact, gaps in the fossil record where Homo neanderthalensis (Neanderthals) and other primate species appear in genetic succession. Homo sapiens then appears in the record with no intermediate evolutionary steps in between. Geneticists have now determined that Neanderthals and Homo sapiens are two separate species as their genetic comparisons show signs of biological incompatibilities. The mechanism by which Neanderthal DNA had morphed into Homo sapiens genetics is yet to be explained by contemporary science.

Fact 3

On 29th September, 1995, President Clinton issued a presidential determination No. 95–45 exempting the US Air Force’s “operating location” near Groom Lake in Nevada from all laws that normal American citizens, companies and government entities must obey. The term ‘operating location’ was used to describe the secret base as it did not officially exist during the time of his presidency. This ruling was issued on the grounds that

Information concerning activities at this “operating location” near Groom Lake (aka Area 51) had been deemed classified, and

Its disclosure would compromise national security.

Fact 4

On 9th May, 2001, an assembly of US military, intelligence, government, corporate and scientific witnesses came forward at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.. They went on the record to give first-hand eyewitness accounts of non-terrestrial vehicles, non-terrestrial life forms, associated advanced energy systems and exotic propulsion technologies. Their testimonies have now been made available to the wider public.
