Chris Garetano: Dark Files and the Montauk Project - Somewhere in the Skies
On episode 24 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with Chris Garetano about his lifelong search for answers to the Montauk Project, said to have been carried out at Camp Hero on Long Island, NY.
The government claims that this site is a shuttered military base that once protected Americans, but for decades endless rumors maintain that the United States government engaged in a pattern of covert behavior that saw it experiment on its own citizens in such programs as the Tuskegee Experiments and MK Ultra. Could Montauk’s Camp Hero–with its rumors of mind control experiments, acid tests, child abductions, possible alien contact, and time travel have any truth behind it?
Chris is a filmmaker who released a documentary in 2015 titled, THE MONTAUK CHRONICLES, which covered these very rumors and accusations by those who claimed to have been there. Some admitted having participated in the experiments while some even claimed to have been those experimented on. The film was then expanded on in a recent History Channel special called THE DARK FILES. With a thorough investigation by Steve Volk, Barry Eisler, and Chris himself, they unravel the mystery one witness at a time and find stunning evidence that the Montauk Project may be shockingly all too real. Chris gives us the inside scoop on both the documentary and the television special and reveals some of the incredible evidence they uncovered in their dark and mysterious investigation.
