  Entrevista a Paola Harris, 16 de Junio del 2008  
  Publicada en el American Chronicle  

Editors note: This is part of a special series of Raiders News Network interviews focusing on the 61st Anniversary of the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico UFO Incident. RNN is joined by Paola Leopizzi Harris (Italy/Europe/Vatican) Paola is an Italo-American photojournalist and investigative reporter in the field of extraterrestrial related phenomena research. She is also a widely published, free-lance writer, especially in Europe. She has studied extraterrestrial related phenomena since 1979 and is on personal terms with many of the leading researchers in the field. From 1980-1986 she assisted Dr. J. Allen Hyneck with his UFO investigations and has interviewed many top military witnesses concerning their involvement in the government truth embargo. In 1997, Ms. Harris met and interviewed Col. Philip Corso in Roswell, New Mexico and became a personal friend and confidante. She was instrumental in having his book The Day After Roswell, for which she wrote the preface, translated into Italian.

  RNN: Paola, thank you for doing this interview. You yourself are famous for your accurate "word for word Interviews". Do you include interviews in your new book How does one speak to a Ball of light?

PAOLA: Yes, I have many!

The field is very complex as I realized that we as a UFO culture concentrate too much on the " Grey" beings as the only alien race. I was told that there are at least 57 catalogued in the Pentagon . The " disembodied intelligences that appear in places like Caronia Marittima in Sicily are balls of light. So my new book is entitled : Exopolitics: How Does One Speak to a Ball of Light? The book has many interviews. Some include Ex Canadian Minister of defense Paul Hellyer, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Steven Greer, Dr. Dan Burisch, Al Bielik, Colonel Corso and the Famous Einstein- Oppenheimer letter discussing the protocols of Future contact from 1947.

RNN: Who is included in these interviews and who do you consider the most accurate of testimonies?

PAOLA: Mostly those from the military, ex-intelligence people and astronauts. They are passionate about disclosure as they reach the end of their lives. They trust me to write exactly what they tell me.

RNN: You talk about Protocols and Challenges for Future Contact. Can you discuss this?

PAOLA: We are way past the sightings stage. We know there has been contact and we are being observed from space and I believe many Cosmic Cultures may be walking among us now.

But no one has prepared humanity. That is why I have graduated to the academic discipline of Exopolitics. It talks about preparation and about creating public policies on a citizen diplomacy level. I am coordinating this with a group of very prepared young ufologists in Europe for Dr. Michael Salla's Exopolitics Institute. One of the protocols deals with distinguishing their stuff from "Our" stuff from Crop Circles to back-engineered craft. There is copy-cat phenomena . If we don't learn to do this, we could be lead into a false space war.

RNN: Why did the Government not consider this interaction before or do you think they did?

PAOLA: The government,and we need to be careful talking about a structure that has changed so many people since 1947, has their hands tied. It is the secret or shadow government that runs this and the right hand does not understand what the left hand is doing. So we have been advised that we must put pressure on the powers that be and get our facts straight. Other countries are stepping up to the plate, for instance France, Brazil, England even Ireland but the big obstacle is the United States who has the most at stake, having the most exotic of technologies. However have you noticed how the media coverage has changed from the coverage of CNN's Larry King Live and James Fox with Out of the Blue, the movie? Also the serious conversation that David Letterman had with Jeff Peckman on Prime Time is a milestone for disclosure. It is almost as if the media has broken away from transnational control. It is developing its own sense of integrity and responsibility. I'm impressed.

RNN: Define Exopolitics. Will there be another x-conference?

PAOLA: Exopolitics is the study of the Extraterrestrial presence on Earth and its implications for Humanity. I do not think that much will ever come out of Washington D.C. or any election. Although, I do herald the passionate efforts of Steven Bassett and I have spoken at three X-conferences, having brought the Vatican 's Monsignore Balducci to speak at one of them. I would rather sponsor this academic study in the universities and colleges and have our young people brainstorm how we deal with this.

RNN: Speaking of Exopilitics, following Vatican chief astronomer Father Jose Gabriel Funes's recent interview saying it's okay for Catholics to believe in Aliens, Tom Horn wrote an article for us called Is the Vatican easing humanity toward alien disclosure? He pointed out how Funes was just the latest in a string of Vatican authorities including Guy Consolmagno, Monsignor Corrado Balducci, the now deceased Father Malachi Martin and others who in recent history provided carefully crafted language that almost seems to be designed to help church faithful face the possibility of ET contact. Consolmagno went so far as to the say the chances of finding ET are now better than not. Do you think the Vatican has ET evidence of some kind?

PAOLA: Of course. They have a massive stake in integrating this reality with religion. It is a reality, you know! We are not alone!

The Vatican has an incredible observatory in Arizona and many conversations have taken place between the late Pope about this at the Holy See. They probably have historical documents buried deep inside the Vatican libraries. This phenomena has been around since early civilization. It is not clear,however, where the current Holy Father is going with all this. There seems to be some rush towards disclosure perhaps due to some unknown event.

RNN: In the several interviews we have done with Jesse Marcel Jr. on radio and news print, we asked him a question that often comes up about UFOs and religion. Jesse is a devout Catholic and like some of the high profile church astronomers that have been in the news recently talking about the possibility of intelligent alien life, he agrees that contact with extraterrestrials or some other proof of their existence is not in conflict with church teachings. I realize you are an investigative reporter, but have you given any thought to this question concerning the spiritual or psychological ramifications of what Roswell may represent with regard to people's religious ideas?

PAOLA: There is no separation. Most religions have great Teachers, Guides and Masters who like Jesus keep asking us to love one another and to love GOD. If we had obeyed these teachings, we would not be the primitive, cruel and selfish people we have become. Cosmic Cultures are saying, like the great Masters, " either grow up and evolve or you will self destruct"! They are very much on the same page as I see it. I just hope we make this shift from our own "enlightenment" and not from some catastrophe.

RNN: What do you make of the latest Indiana Jones film and what it ties to Roswell.

PAOLA: The movie is not about what flies in the air but "the lies on the ground"! There is such secrecy in our democratic government that the movie is one "unveiling" after lie another . But I wish they would stop portraying all aliens as " greys" because we have many that resemble us! Roswell is just the symbol of a governmental cover-up and the crystal skull is an example of the potential for advance communication devices as well as the power of the human psyche that probably could communicate with the stars without the use of " ancient radio telescopes"! How silly!

RNN: David Flynn is presenting at Roswell this year. His lecture will be based on an amazing article he wrote for Raiders News Network and which we also got published in UFO Magazine. The name of the article was An Occult Translation of the Roswell Event and the Year 2012. I don't know if you read it, but he tied the Mountain of Horeb which he calls a place where ET descended once before (the legend of the Watchers), the measurements 33.33 and 2012, directly with the crash site of Roswell. His bottom line is that the Roswell crash site is, in his mind, an intelligent marker pointing to the year 2012 and the return of the gods / aliens. Have you heard about this, and, if not, do you think there could have been some mystical value to the actual location of the crash site?

PAOLA: Absolutely. There is a definite connection to ritual and what we call "the occult". I do not think we understand "energy" amplification yet! My first book is called Connecting the Dots: Making Sense of the UFO phenomena and addresses this too. Look at Richard Hoagland's work on hyper-dimensional geometry.

Roswell was a gift and New Mexico holds a particular energy. Colonel Corso explained this to me. Why are Burt Rutan and Richard Branson making a Spaceport there? I think we are shifting from a Earth based populous to one who can communicate with the stars.

RNN: You speak of Human looking Aliens. What stories are you covering?

PAOLA: The Maurizio Cavallo Story is one of three cases in Italy. It is on my website He just released Beyond the Heavens with Authorhouse and he lives in Piedmonte(Turin) area of Italy. In 1981, he took Polaroid photos of ETs and was told to keep them for ten years. His story is very complex and needs to be examined.

RNN: Why do you think these two books Mass Contact and Beyond Heaven that speak of human looking aliens who have Underwater Bases were disclosed in ITALY this year?

PAOLA: It is part of some mysterious " slow processed release of information, as Richard Hoagland puts it," a time released aspirin" scenario. In our jargon, they say" something is coming down"! Italy is a forerunner in disclosure because the proof of these aliens contacting politicians and church members near Pescara on the Adriatic coast in 1957 is unmistakable. Underwater bases figure greatly in the fact that some races are here!

RNN: You showed pictures of aliens who walk amongst us when you did your talk at Probe, what convinced you these were really aliens?

PAOLA: The photos are Polaroid, old Polaroids and are hard to fake and there was no Photoshop at the time. The faces have distinctive eyes. But in the end,most proof lies in the credibility of the contactee. It is quite difficult to determine this and for this reason I have delayed covering contact stories. They become tainted.

RNN: You also talked about Orbs or light Phenomena. What do you think these represent?

PAOLA: Energy. Sometimes disembodied intelligence in the rooms. I think it could include the inter-dimensional spirit world or aliens world or "all of the above" which is the name of my next book. Digital technology and infrared cameras are capturing this world. We will be making great many discoveries in the future. There is an invisible world of energy we do not see out there.

RNN: You talk of Sts-75 Orbs in Space. Why do you compare them to Orbs?

PAOLA: They are not amoeba nor space debris as they move back and forth and accelerate speeds. They appear as intelligent pulsating lights at a high frequency. It is all about " our" frequency as advanced Quantum Physics tells us. Maybe lowering the frequency will show a craft, solid as ever. Whatever those hundreds of lights were, they were interested in that satellite. NASA knows this.

RNN: After all these years, do you still believe the message of Col. Phillip Corso? Tell us about him, and your experience.

PAOLA: He said there was going to be a " new World If we could Take it"! This interview is in the new Revised Version of Connecting the Dots published by Authorhouse. I have much material given to me and my editor of Area 51 magazine in Italy. Maurizio Baiata.

RNN: Did the Canadian Government Minister give you further proof?

PAOLA: He basically told me as he stated in my book Exoplitics: How Does One Speak to A Ball Of Light? that Ufos were as real as Airplanes and we must know the truth in order to make enlightened policy decisions and before spending billions of dollars on things like the proposed " missile Shield". He asked " Who is it protecting us against?" He is very well informed and like Colonel Corso, he is one very courageous individual. The interview I did is on YouTube.

RNN: Do you think the Disclosure process is moving along at a fast rate? If so, what events convince you of this?

PAOLA: All of the Above. All the media coverage mentioned. Everything we have had the freedom and the privilege to discuss now in this interview

RNN: Talk about the 61st anniversary of Roswell and why people should attend.

PAOLA: First of all, Roswell is the Mecca of Ufology. It is a time for entire families to see the UfO Museum , to attend the lectures and become informed. It happened in Roswell. Europeans dream of coming here! It is a gathering; it is fun. It is where it's all happening.

RNN: Thanks for doing this interview, Paola. Please tell people where they can learn more about your research.
