Hoax Investigations and Research
Ryan became interested in the strange world of the U.S. intelligence community when he interviewed several members of that community during an intriguing Internet hoax investigation in 2006.
Since then, Ryan continued to dig deeper into the strange world of Intelligence, filing numerous FOIA requests with government agencies to uncover the deeper, buried stories hidden within thousands of now-declassified documents.
Over the years, Ryan’s research into declassified government documents expanded into the area of Corporate ethics and espionage, as well as the fringes of advanced scientific research both inside and outside the government. It was Ryan’s hope that this website could serve as an outlet for that research, and for those findings.
Ultimately, the goal of TSW is to enlighten and inform the public.
