20 AND BACK: 2 MORE WHISTLEBLOWERS DIVULGE INVOLVEMENT IN SECRET SPACE PROGRAM

by Makia Freeman, Contributor Waking Times 20 and Back is the standard phrase use to describe the tour of duty undergone by recruits into the SSP (Secret Space Program). The term 20 and back refers to the 20 year commitment that these military men and women make when they sign up to go into space – or the amount of time they are forced to serve as slaves.

Their testimonies are remarkable, and echo the accounts and experiences of many other whistleblowers who have recalled … Continue reading 20 AND BACK: 2 MORE WHISTLEBLOWERS DIVULGE INVOLVEMENT IN SECRET SPACE PROGRAM
