Andrew Basiago, an attorney from Seattle, has claimed since 2004 that from the age of 7 to the age of 12 he was part of ‘Project Pegasus.’ The project was a U.S. government secret program that worked on teleportation and time travel for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
“They trained children along with adults so they could test the mental and physical effects of time travel on kids,” Basiago said. “Also, children had an advantage over adults in terms of adapting to the strains of moving between past, present and future.”
Basiago does have at least one supporter in fellow lawyer Alfred Webre, who specializes in ‘exopolitics,’ which is the political implications that surround extraterrestrial presence on Earth.
“It’s an inexpensive, environmentally friendly means of transportation,” Webre said. “The Defense Department has had it for 40 years and [former Defense Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld used it to transport troops to battle.”
During his time in the program, Basiago claims to have worked with eight different technologies for time travel but most of his time was spent with a teleporter based on papers found in the New York City apartment of mechanical engineer Nikola Tesla in 1943.
“The machine consisted of two gray elliptical booms about eight feet tall, separated by about 10 feet, between which a shimmering curtain of what Tesla called ‘radiant energy’ was broadcast,” Basiago said. “Radiant energy is a form of energy that Tesla discovered that is latent and pervasive in the universe and has among its properties the capacity to bend time-space.”
Basiago has told the public many times that he is in a photograph taken with Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg in 1863. He said he visited in 1972 from a plasma confinement chamber in East Hanover, New Jersey.
“I had been dressed in period clothing, as a Union bugle boy,” he said. “I attracted so much attention at the Lincoln speech site at Gettysburg — wearing over-sized men’s street shoes — that I left the area around the dais and walked about 100 paces over to where I was photographed in the Josephine Cogg image of Lincoln at Gettysburg.” (The boy to the left in the photos below).
Basiago also claims that he went to Ford’s Theatre the night that Lincoln was assassinated around five or six times.
“I did not, however, witness the assassination,” he said. “Once, I was on the theater level when he was shot and I heard the shot followed by a great commotion that arose from the crowd. It was terrible to hear.”
Basiago claims he was in the same place at the same time twice but from two different times in the present. This occurred at Ford’s Theatre in 1865.
“After the first of these two encounters with myself occurred, I was concerned that my cover might be blown,” he said. “Unlike the jump to Gettysburg, in which I was clutching a letter to Navy Secretary Gideon Welles to offer me aid and assistance in the event I was arrested, I didn’t have any explanatory materials when I was sent to Ford’s Theatre.”
Basiago claims that there was a holographic device that would allow him to travel physically and virtually back and forth in time.
“If we were in the hologram for 15 minutes or fewer,” he said, “the hologram would collapse, and after about 60 seconds of standing in a field of super-charged particles … we would find ourselves back on the stage … in the present.”
