Here’s a fascinating one-and-a-half hour interview, from Project Camelot, with Sergeant Major Bob Dean, a retired military analyst who has been privy for over half a century to much hidden information about UFO and ET encounters. He was working for the SHAPE Command in Europe in the 1960s, when he became aware of the realities of ET contacts that were being kept secret by the military. He is also one of the interviewees discussed in Paola Harris’s book Connecting the Dots.
Dean discusses the work of Zachariah Sitchin, the Sumerologist whose work, though of impeccable scholarship, is considered too radical to be taken seriously by mainstream academia, much less the military scientific establishment. Sitchin translated and analyzed Sumerian cuneiform inscriptions to present his findings in a series of seven books called The Earth Chronicles – detailing the role of the Annunaki in genetically engineering our hominid ancestors, when they established colonies here from their home planet Nibiru, which is on a 3600 year eccentric outer orbit in this solar system.
In my book The Roots of War and Domination, I discuss Sitchin’s work in some detail and point to the convergences between the Sumerian accounts of rival ruler Anunaki “gods” and contemporary accounts of different ET visitors with differing agendas.
From the mythology of the Sumerians as interpreted by Sitchin, we find that feuding between branches of the Anunaki families, together with their mixed Anunaki-human descendants continued for thousands of years. Male humans were drafted into military service for their rulers, who fought pitched battles by land, sea and air. ..By the time the Anunaki left, perhaps when the legendary flood wiped out the great cities they had established, humans had learned to colonize, dominate and enslave other populations – from the overlords who had genetically engineered and enslaved their remote ancestors in the first place. Here is a key to the understanding of the roots of domination: humans may have learned to dominate other humans from the extra-terrestrial overlords who dominated them. The master-slave dichotomy was built in, perhaps genetically, but certainly by socialization, from the very beginnings of the human species. In a similar way, we have seen in the 20th century, that the ruling elites in countries formerly colonized by European nations, proceeded to enslave and exploit the poorer working classes in their newly independent nations. …
There are formidable obstacles in the minds of most people to accepting even the possibility that this story might contain some important truths. For me personally, I found these perspectives initially unbelievable and unsettling, but ultimately liberating and exciting because they helped me to understand some of the really strange behaviors of civilized Earth humans, including the persistence of war and domination behavior, and the connection with religious ideologies.

In the interview with Project Camelot, Bob Dean, who accepts much of Sitchin’s story, point out that Planet X, a hitherto unknown body in our solar system is now being observed by astronomers from several observatories to be coming closer to Earth, may be identical with the Sumerian Nibiru. On its previous incursions into the solar system, according to Sitchin, it triggered major perturbations – so there are many possible scenarios being discussed of literally earth-shaking developments affecting all life on Earth, and human civilization.
Of course, anyone who has been paying attention knows that the changes now occurring on planet Earth are monumental and unprecedented, and go far beyond a temporary so-called “recession” in the stock market. We are in a situation of potentially devastating environmental destruction and climate disruption, with enormous effects on human population in all areas of planet Earth. Taking the mythic record of pre-historic global catastrophes seriously should certainly add a sobering perspective to our thinking.
