Who Is Isaac & The Drone Link

This, "Isaac" page was originally just one web page but to be honest there are so many discrepancies within the Isaac text that it's just not practical to detail them all on the one web page.

As has been mentioned several times previously, there really were only FIVE original and consecutive original Drone reports (that included witnesses who claimed that they personally photographed the Drone). The dates of these reports ranged from the first account/image at the end of April 2007 (Chad cellular/mobile phone image) which was reported at the beginning of May 2007, and the last being 'TY' who claimed he photographed the Drone at Big Basin on the 5th June 2007 but didn't report it until the16th June.

The (written) Drone accounts from the witnesses were much like the images of the Drones themselves in that they evolved with every subsequent report, the written word of the witnesses seemingly answering the more telling and accusatory questions which were levelled at the preceding account. Questions and criticisms which were readily and freely accessible to all who were interested as they were publicly posted across the internet in real-time, as and when the Drone reports and images were disseminated on many UFO forums, Blogs, websites etc. etc. This was mentioned by several members at the time of this dissemination with comments along the lines that by publicly sharing specifics of their respective analysis, that ultimately they were peer reviewing the hoaxers techniques and offering indications and suggestions of how they went wrong or what could have done (in their personal & respective opinions) to have made the Drone reports more believable.

The Evolving Drone Hoax

Quality, NOT Quantity

It appeared as if this was a learning curve that the (altogether human creator/s) of the Drones relished, rising to the challenge and criticisms with yet more complex and elaborate Drone designs whilst simultaneously trying to quell the noisy protestors cries over the lack of verifiable witnesses by providing an increasing number of witnesses for every report, unfortunately these were all as equally unverifiable and anonymous as the previous witnesses were.

(Note: Although I say the Drones themselves evolved I mean prior to the first release and by intentional design. By this I mean I personally believe that the Drones and the Isaac documentation were prepared as a package and one which was completed before the release of the first image. I do however believe that while the witness stories and names/pseudonyms were also very likely prepared prior to the release I DO believe that these original accounts were tweaked, with the specifics being slightly modified and adjusted to answer accusations levelled at its predecessor).

Then after the original five Drone reports, along came Isaac the alleged whistleblower with his documents which he'd stole by smuggling them out of a secure facility over a period of at least three months** The first image was taken at the end of April (2007) on Chad's cell-phone and Isaac appeared approximately seven weeks later on the 26 th June and attempted to tie up any loose ends.

**Isaac said he started smuggling the documents: "about 3 months before I resigned (which was about 8 months before I was really out)"

I'll admit that the same as many others the very first time I started to read Isaac's musings it was with a wide-eyed wonder, but inevitably by the time I'd finished reading Isaac's "Explanation Of the Strange Craft" package (which was accompanied by the highly sensitive and allegedly stolen documentation & images) then it's fair to say the initial "Wow" factor had well and truly worn off.

Alas never to return....

Familiarity Breeds Contempt

After a couple more times of reading and after the information relayed was allowed time to settle then it read at best like half-decent sci-fi. However after many, many more times of reading then I realised that Isaac's entire account was as ludicrous as it was fantastical. In my humble opinion it really was no more than the literary equivalent of grandstanding and when broken down then the words of Isaac are little more than empty rhetoric with the entire account being laced with grandiose statements, pseudo-intellectual/scientific techno-babble, massively irrelevant, bizarre and often nonsensical metaphors, yet more grandiose statements etc. etc.

None of Isaac's account stands up to critical thinking let alone lends itself to analytical procedures of ANY description, whether that is the pseudoscientific techno-babble, his employment history, the name of the establishment, the layout of the documents (clarity, missing classification stamps etc.) or the multitude of other inconsistencies most of which are enough to kill Isaac's credibility alone.

But when they are all combined then it becomes impossible to believe a word that Isaac wrote.

In fact to be honest then the vast majority of the prose was little more than Isaac establishing his authority before unleashing the might of the intricate and aesthetically pleasing line drawings that his ' Linguistic analysis primer ' (LAP) is comprised of as there's no denying that the LAP that accompanied Isaac's ramblings was certainly inspired as there's no denying it is still a thing of beauty.

Because as outlandish the context and as ridiculous the premise, there's something strangely compelling about it. In fact it's probably one of the better creations within the Drone debacle and is oft overlooked by people who happen across the Drones and subsequently Isaac's documentation. Especially if it's just a cursory glance afforded the documents as until you actually open the LAP in imaging software and zoom in then it's impossible to appreciate the intricacy and workmanship that has obviously went into its (overly) structured design.

Parts of the above text are repeated in the 'CARET facility' section due to the relevance to the respective content on both of these pages
and to act as a refresher (of sorts) mainly for readers who only view a few pages of the website.

Isaac wrote the following in the email that accompanied his release of documents.
  • During my time there, I worked with a lot of the technology that is clearly at work in the recent drone/strange craft sightings, most notably the "language" and diagrams seen on the underside of each craft.

  • However, I have worked with and seen many of the parts visible in these crafts, some of which can be seen in the Q3-85 Inventory Review scan found at the top of this page. More importantly though, I'm very familiar with the "language" on their undersides seen clearly in photos by Chad and Rajman, and in another form in the Big Basin photos.

  • The antigrav was amazing, of course, as were the advances we were making with materials engineering and so on. But what interested me most then, and still amazes me most to this day, was something completely unrelated. In fact, it was this technology that immediately jumped out at me when I saw the Chad and Rajman photos, and even moreso in the Big Basin photos.

With this initial letter I have attached high resolution scans of the following:

  • A page from an inventory review with a photo that appears to depict one of the parts found in the Rajman sighting and parts very similar to the Big Basin craft.

  • 5 pages from a report on our ongoing analysis of the "language" (inappropriately titled "linguistic analysis"), depicting the kind of diagram just barely visible on the underside of the Big Basin craft.

As can be seen from the black & white image above there can be no denying that it depicts rings which were evident on the Big Basin version of the Drone. And for further comparisons a quick glance of the objects side by side also corroborates this:

Here's a basic animation of the two rings seen directly above overlaid:

Here is a completely different section which is evident in the inventory image supplied by Isaac and also on the other version of the Drones:

And here are some of the line drawings that Isaac supplied us in the LAP clearly visible on the panels which adorn the Big Basin Drone:

And finally, the paddles from the Rajman1977 & Chad Drones show the LAP symbols which Isaac revealed in his documentation as the LAP:

Really this is just to show those who aren't familiar with the Drone history the inextricable links between Isaac and the original Drone witnesses as it's not really an issue for those familiar with the accounts, because as shown above the relationship between the two are obvious.
