It’s clear by now that there is ample confirmation of the validity of the Davis-Wilson notes, at least insofar that Dr. Eric Davis did legitimately write these notes in the aftermath of his meeting with retired Admiral Thomas R. Wilson twenty years ago. For those of you who have been following this unfolding drama since it went public in 2019, you know I have had my part in this discussion.
In any case, Jay from Project Unity has scored another outstanding interview, this time with Oke Shannon, retired Navy officer and Special Projects Manager at Los Alamos National Labs. Most importantly, he is also a friend to both Admiral Wilson and Dr. Davis. Shannon is mentioned in the notes by Davis as the man who had given Wilson assurances that Davis was trustworthy and reliable — in other words, safe to talk to.
The interview actually covers a number of themes, but the Davis-Wilson aspect begins at 20 minutes and goes for about ten minutes.
Some of the highlights include:
Jay: “Do you know Dr Eric Davis?”
Shannon: “Yes, I know him fairly well.” Goes on to say they had “mutual projects mutual acquaintances, things of that sort.”
Jay: “Do you personally know Admiral Thomas R. Wilson?”
Shannon: “Yes I do … I read somewhere that his response was ‘Oke who?’ [chuckles] and I thought that was kind of funny. … I’m sure my memory of him is stronger than his memory of me.”
Jay: “Did Wilson contact you in 01 or 02 about the trustworthiness of Dr. Davis?”
Shannon: “Earlier than that.”
He also discussed his heart attack and health issues at the time, which was mentioned in the notes. States that Wilson called him in 1999.
Shannon: “I got this phone call and it was from Admiral Wilson. And he asked me– this was not a short conversation, I was recuperating, I was able to carry on this conversation but I wasn’t able to do much else at that point…. One of the things he wanted to know was could he trust Eric Davis. And I think he may have even mentioned Hal Puthoff. And one or two other people. I mentioned that I believed yes that Eric Davis was honorable and conscientious, and that he would honor any restrictions the Admiral might put on him, and I thought it would be safe for him to contact him.”
Wilson did not say why he was seeking the info on Davis. Shannon believed he would definitely have remembered that.
Shannon also confirmed another detail of the notes, which is that he was difficult to reach at that time due to his health issues.
Those are the main points that Shannon stated which are relevant to the discussion of the authenticity of Davis’s notes. Honestly, I think we long ago passed any point of doubt about their authenticity but this is another nail in the coffin of the silly arguments by skeptics. I personally feel that all of them who cast doubts and aspersions over these notes ought to admit they were wrong and acknowledge the damage they have caused the UFO community — and the wider public — by hindering the wider acceptance of these notes and the important implications they tell us. But that is just my opinion.
The meeting between Davis and Wilson happened. The accuracy of what Davis wrote cannot seriously be questioned at this point. The notes tell us of a labyrinthian system of secrecy (and arguably criminality) within the SAP portion of the DoD that is hiding and exploiting extraterrestrial technology, and has been doing so for many years. This system is nearly entirely beyond the purview of the highest government officials, let alone members of Congress or the public. Private corporations benefit from it and all research and implications are hidden from us. Getting to the bottom of this constitutes a potential legal, bureaucratic, and political nightmare, but is not an impossibility.
Great job by Jay.
Incidentally, the person who notified me of the existence of this interview was Dr. Hal Puthoff. He let me know about an hour before Jay himself did! I asked Hal if I could mention this fact and he noted that since his own name was mentioned during the interview, there was probably no harm in stating that he was the one who let me know. 🙂
