In a recent post, I wrote a piece asking a question concerning the identity of an individual who had been in contact with Skinwalker Ranch researcher Ryan Skinner. The suggestion arose that this individual may have been former UAP Task Force director John F. Stratton. Although I attempted to contact Mr. Stratton for a comment, I was unable to do so.
This morning on Twitter, Las Vegas journalist George Knapp advised that he had been in touch with Mr. Stratton at the recent SCU conference in Huntsville, Alabama. Knapp tweeted the following statement, after speaking to Mr. Stratton:
“I have never met or talked in any form, electronic or otherwise, with Mr. Skinner. Additionally, I have never been to his website or Facebook group etc.” Jay Stratton told me this via a text and also in person during the SCU conference this past weekend.
In an email to this author, Knapp added a further statement by himself, which I reproduce with his consent:
“Jay Stratton had a long and distinguished career in the military and as a civilian intelligence officer. To my knowledge, he’s never leaked anything to anyone about classified matters, never granted interviews or made statements to media about UFOs/Paranormal (including to me), and most certainly is not the person who was whispering in the ear of Ryan Skinner.Maybe someone else was posing as Stratton in communicating with Skinner via disappearing text messages, or perhaps there is another explanation. The person who made up the statements shared by Ryan seems to have a vivid imagination given the claim that most of the paranormal and UFO activity at the ranch is supposedly being generated by the remote viewers in foreign countries.Whoever said that knows little about the measurable physical events at the ranch or about the nearly 100-year history of such activity on the property, That person knows even less about remote viewing.I spoke to Mr. Stratton face to face during the SCU conference in Huntsville and he was mildly amused that someone would fabricate these fake quotes attributed to him.”
I thank George Knapp, for following up this matter; and for advising us of the results.
