- "I want you to find the answers to two questions
for me. One, who killed JFK. And, Two, are there UFOs? ", From Friends
in High Places, by Webster Hubbell, Clinton's associate attorney general.
Hubbel revealed that the President made the UFOs a priority when he appointed
him. " He continues: "Clinton was dead serious. I had looked
into both but he wasn't satisfied with the answers."- William Jefferson
Clinton Update: Even President Clinton is talking about Roswell these days.
During a recent visit to Northern Ireland, Clinton's somber plea for peace
turned to UFOs when answering a young boy's question. "No, as far
as I know, an alien spacecraft did not crash in Roswell, New Mexico, in
1947," the president said... "If the United States Air Force
did recover alien bodies, they didn't tell me about it, either, and I want
to know."- Oct. 1999.
- The Latest Clinton Quote: Nov. 7, 1999 "If we were
being attacked by space aliens we wouldn't be playing these kinds of games,"
Clinton told educators visiting Washington D.C.
- "I was in a plane last week when I looked out the
window and saw this white light. It was zigzagging around." "I
went up to the pilot and said, "Have you ever seen anything like that?"
He was shocked and he said, "Nope." And I said to him: "Let's
follow it!" "We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright
white light." "We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden
to our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens." "When
I got off the plane I told Nancy all about it. But we didn't file a report
on the object because for a long time they considered you a nut if you
saw a UFO..." -Ronald Reagan, 1974
- "I don't laugh at people any more when they say
they've seen UFOs," Carter said at a Southern Governors Conference
a few years ago. "I've seen one myself." "It was the darndest
thing I've ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colors
and it was about the size of the moon.. We watched it for ten minutes,
but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing's for sure, I'll
never make fun of people who say they've seen unidentified objects in the
sky. I think it was a light beckoning me to run in the California primary."
"If I become President, I'll make every piece of information that
this country has about UFO sightings available to the public."-James
Earl Carter The world is still waiting...
- "The American public deserves a better explanation
than that thus far given by the U. S. Air Force, I strongly recommend that
there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomena. I think we owe
it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce
the greatest possible enlightenment on this subject." Gerald R. Ford.
Gerald Ford never again addressed the issue of UFOs.
- "We seek a free flow of information... we are not
afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas,
alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid
to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a
nation that is afraid of its people."-John F. Kennedy, Nov. 21, 1963.
- "With control of the universe at stake, a crash
program is imperative. We produced the A-bomb, under the huge Manhattan
Project, in an amazingly short time. The needs, the urgency today are even
greater. The Air Force should end UFO secrecy, give the facts to scientists,
the public, to Congress." "Once the people realize the truth,
they would back, even demand a crash program... for this is one race we
dare not lose..." -Maj. Don Keyhoe, Director-NICAP, 1953
- "I have no feelings, truthfully. My association
with MJ-12 has left me dead inside. I feel myself still cold and calculating.
I never let anyone get close to me. I feel like a human robot. I have killed
mercilessly and lied for the good of the country, or so I believed at the
time."-Col. Steve Wilson "The things I have seen are beyond human
understanding and totally unbelievable. I only have a desire to help humanity
somehow through what is bound to come soon." Note: We will never know
the full story of Col. Wilson, as he passed away in 1997, before he could
tell the world his amazing story.
- "If you suppress the truth it becomes your enemy...if
you expose the truth it becomes your weapon." "I had the evidence
that a crash did happen. I ask you this, were you there with me? did you
have the clearances? They can't answer these questions, they simply criticize
with no evidence."- Col. Phillip Corso, U.S. Army, 1913-1998
- The "truth" was known by only a very few persons...
Of the original group that were the first to learn, several committed suicide
- the most prominent of which was Defense Secretary James V. Forrestal
who jumped to his death from a 16th story hospital window. Secretary Forrestal's
records are sealed to this day. President Truman quickly put a lid on the
secret and turned the screws so tight that the general public still thinks
that flying saucers are a joke. - James V. Forrestal Secretary of Defense
- "Unknown objects are operating under intelligent
control... It is imperative that we learn where UFO's come from and what
their purpose is..."- Admiral Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter Director, Central
Intelligence Agency 1947-1950
- "This 'flying saucer' situation is not at all imaginary
or seeing too much in some natural phenomena. Something is really flying
around. The phenomenon is something real and not visionary or fictitious."-
Gen. Nathan Twining Chief of Staff, US Air Force, Chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff
- "The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been requested
to assist in the investigation of reported sightings of flying disks..."-
John Edgar Hoover Director FBI 1924-1972
- Astronauts Say Truth Is Out There
- UFO quotes by Astronauts & Cosmonauts
- "If, in fact, we are able to find life or to answer
the question 'Are we alone?' then that certainly is grand enough and noble
enough to be the enduring legacy of our civilization."-NASA, October
1999. "Russia and the U. S. have announced they are definitely planning
several space machines. So it's quite possible that the first space ships
or satellites may encounter other interplanetary machines, manned or otherwise.
Our space devices may even be closely approached by such alien machines...
" - Maj. Don Keyhoe USMC, November 29, 1957.
- "We have no proof, But if we extrapolate, based
on the best information we have available to us, we have to come to the
conclusion that ... other life probably exists out there and perhaps in
many places..."-Neil Armstrong, Oct 21, 1999.
- "Statistically it's a certainty there are hugely
advanced civilizations, intelligences, life forms out there. I believe
they're so advanced they're even doing interstellar travel. I believe it's
possible they even came here."-Astronaut Storey Musgrove
- "The evidence points to the fact that Roswell was
a real incident and that indeed an alien craft did crash and that material
was recovered from that crash site," says Mitchell, who became the
sixth man on the moon in the Apollo 14 mission. Mitchell doesn't say he's
seen a UFO. But he says he's met with high-ranking military officers who
admitted involvement with alien technology and hardware. Cooper told a
U.N. committee recently, "Every day in the U.S.A., our radar instruments
capture objects of form and composition unknown to us.", Cooper speculates
that public skepticism toward UFOs will shift dramatically.- Astronaut
Gordon Cooper and Ed Mitchell in a recent interview.
- "I have been over the years very skeptical like
many others. But in the last ten years or so, I have known the late Dr.
Alan Hynek - who I highly admire. I know and currently work with Dr. Jacques
Vallee. I've come to realize that the evidence is building up to make this
a valid and researchable question. Further, because my personal motivation
has always been to understand our universe better, and my own theoretical
work has convinced me that life is everywhere in the universe that has
been permitted to evolve, I consider this a very timely question... By
becoming more involved with the serious research field, I've seen the evidence
mount towards the truth of these matters. I rely upon the testimony of
contacts that I have had - old timers - who were involved in official positions
in government and intelligence and militiary over the last 50 years. We
cannot say that today's government is really covering it up - I think that
most of them don't know what is going on anymore than the public... -Dr.
Ed Mitchell Apollo 14 Astronaut, MSN Interview 10/98."
- "It followed us during half of our orbit. We observed
it on the light side, and when we entered the shadow side, it disappeared
completely. It was an engineered structure, made from some type of metal,
approximately 40 meters long with inner hulls. The object was narrow here
and wider here, and inside there were openings. Some places had projections
like small wings. The object stayed very close to us. We photographed it,
and our photos showed it to be 23 to 28 meters away."- Cosmonaut Victor
Afanasyev commenting on a UFO sighting that occurred while en route to
the Solyut 6 space station in April of 1979.
- "At no time, when the astronauts were in space were
they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs." -Astronaut
Scott Carpenter-Carpenter photographed a UFO while in orbit on May 24,
1962. NASA still has not released the photograph.
- "...I've been asked about UFOs and I've said publicly
I thought they were somebody else, some other civilization." -Commander
Eugene Cernan, Commanded the Apollo 17 Mission-The quote is from a 1973
article in the Los Angeles Times.
- "I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles
and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets which obviously
are a little more technically advanced than we are here on Earth. I feel
that we need to have a top level, coordinated program to scientifically
collect and analyze data from all over the earth concerning any type of
encounter, and to determine how best to interface with these visitors in
a friendly fashion.... For many years I have lived with a secret, in a
secrecy imposed on all specialists and astronauts. I can now reveal that
every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and
composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and
a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public."
-Colonel L. Gordon Cooper, Mercury and Gemini Astronaut, in an address
to the UN in 1985 after announcing that he had seen and chased UFOs over
Germany in the 1950s. Cooper also reported a greenish object, which passed
by his capsule going east to west (opposite normal man-made orbits) while
in orbit in May of 1963. The object was tracked by ground-based equipment
in Perth, Australia. The press was told it could not question Col. Cooper
on this aspect of the mission. "I had a good friend at Roswell, a
fellow officer. He had to be careful about what he said. But it sure wasn't
a weather balloon, like the Air Force cover story. He made it clear to
me what crashed was a craft of alien origin, and members of the crew were
recovered." -Col. Gordon Cooper
- "I know other astronauts share my feelings.... And
we know the government is sitting on hard evidence of UFOs." -Col.
Gordon Cooper, January 14, 1997.
- "At one stage we even thought it might be necessary
to take evasive action to avoid a collision." -Astronaut James McDivitt
commenting on an orbital encounter he and Ed White had with a "weird
object" with arm-like extensions which approached their capsule. Later
in the flight they saw two similar objects over the Caribbean.
- "I've talked with people of stature-of military
and government credentials and position-and heard their stories, and their
desire to tell their stories openly to the public. And that got my attention
very, very rapidly.... The first hand experiences of these credible witnesses
that, now in advanced years are anxious to tell their story, we can't deny
that, and the evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident,
and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was recovered
from that crash site." -Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut-from
a taped interview.
- "The U.S. Government hasn't maintained secrecy regarding
UFOs It's been leaking out all over the place. But the way it's been handled
is by denial, by denying the truth of the documents that have leaked. By
attempting to show them as fraudulent, as bogus of some sort. There has
been a very large disinformation and misinformation effort around this
whole area. And one must wonder, how better to hide something out in the
open than just to say, 'It isn't there. You're deceiving yourself if you
think this is true.' And yet, there it is right in front of you. So it's
a disinformation effort that's concerning here, not the fact that they
have kept the secret. They haven't kept it. It's been getting out into
the public for fifty years or more." -Dr. Edgar Mitchell, from the
- "We all know UFOs are real. All we need to ask is
where are they from." -Dr. Edgar Mitchell, 1971
- "We have contact with alien cultures." -Astronaut
Dr. Brian O'leary
- "I was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when
I spotted this object. I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice, bright, sunny
afternoon. I thought the object was a kite, then I realized that no kite
is gonna fly that high. As I got closer it looked like a weather balloon,
gray and about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the
darn thing it didn't look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer,
a disk. About the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going way
from me-and there I was, running at about 300 miles per hour. I
tracked it for a little way, and then all of a sudden the damn thing
just took off. It pulled about a 45 degree climbing turn and accelerated
and just flat disappeared." -Donald Slayton, Mercury astronaut,
in a 1951 interview.
- "There ARE things out there! There absolutely is!"
-Major Robert White exclaiming over the radio about a UFO encounter taking
place on a 58 mile high X-15 flight on July 17, 1962. He later reported,
"I have no idea what it could be. It was greyish in color and about
thirty to forty feet away."
- Female Cosmonaut: "I'll take it and hold it with
my right hand. Look out the peephole! I have it!" Male Cosmonaut:
"There is something! If we do not get out the world will never know
about this!" -From the final transmission of a pair of Cosmonauts
whose scheduled seven-day mission was interrupted by a malfunction of unknown
origins. This piece of conversation was recorded on February 24, 1961 while
they were trying to repair the damage. The two Cosmonauts were never heard
from again. UFO comments by the world's top military leaders "It is
time for the truth to be brought out... Behind the scenes high-ranking
Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official
secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying
objects are nonsense.... I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce
the dangers from secrecy about unidentified flying objects."-Former
CIA Director Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, signed statement to Congress,
August 22, 1960.
- "You now face a new world, a world of change. We
speak in strange terms, of harnessing the cosmic energy, of ultimate conflict
between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other planetary
galaxy." "The nations of the world will have to unite, for the
next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday
make a common front against attack by people from other planets."
-General Douglas MacArthur- Oct. 8, 1955
- Winston Churchill asked his air minister Lord Cherwell
to investigate in 1952, "What does all this stuff about flying saucers
amount to? What can it mean? What is the truth?" He was told 12 days
later there was no evidence flying saucers existed.
- "We have, indeed, been contacted-perhaps even visited-by
extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other
national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from
the general public." - Victor Marchetti, former Special Assistant
to the Executive Director of the CIA, in an article written by him for
Second Look entitled "How the CIA Views the UFO Phenomenon",
Vol 1, No 7, Washington, DC, May, 1979.
- "In any case, the Air Force has arrived to the conclusion
that a certain number of anomalous phenomena has been produced within Belgian
airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations compiled in this
[SOBEPS] book, reinforced by the reports of the night of March 30-31 ,
have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorized
aerial activities have taken place. Until now, not a single trace of aggressiveness
has been signaled; military or civilian air traffic has not been perturbed
nor threatened. We can therefore advance that the presumed activities do
not constitute a direct menace." "The day will come undoubtedly
when the phenomenon will be observed with technological means of detection
and collection that won't leave a single doubt about its origin. This should
lift a part of the veil that has covered the mystery for a long time. A
mystery that continues to the present. But it exists, it is real, and that
in itself is an important conclusion." -Major-General Wilfred de Brouwer,
Deputy Chief, Royal Belgian Air Force, "Postface" in SOBEPS'
Vague d'OVNI sur la Belgique - Un Dossier Exceptionnel, Brussels: SOBEPS,
- "More than 10,000 sightings have been reported,
the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any "scientific"
explanation... I am convinced that these objects do exist and that they
are not manufactured by any nation on Earth." "I can therefore
see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from some extraterrestrial
source."- Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding, Commander-in-Chief of the
Royal Air Force Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain, printed in
Sunday Dispatch, London, July 11, 1954.
- "The evidence that there are objects which have
been seen in our atmosphere, and even on terra firma, that cannot be accounted
for either as man-made objects or as any physical force or effect known
to our scientists, seems to me to be overwhelming... A very large number
of sightings have been vouched for by persons whose credentials seem to
me unimpeachable. It is striking that so many have been trained observers,
such as police officers and airline or military pilots. Their observations
have in many instances... been supported either by technical means such
as radar or, even more convincingly, by... interference with electrical
apparatus of one sort or another...." -Lord Hill-Norton, Chief of
Defense Staff, Ministry of Defense, Great Britain, 1973; Chairman, Military
Committee of NATO, 1974-77; quoted from his foreword to "Above Top
Secret" by Timothy Good, Morrow & Co's Quill Books, 1988.
- "The number of thoughtful, intelligent, educated
people in full possession of their faculties who have "seen something"
and described it, grows every day... We can... say categorically that mysterious
objects have indeed appeared and continue to appear in the sky that surrounds
us." -General Lionel M. Chassin, Commanding General of the French
Air Forces, and General Air Defense Coordinator of the Allied Air Forces
of NATO, in foreword to Aime Michel's "Flying Saucers and the Straight-Line
Mystery", Criterion Books, 1958.
- "I must say that if listeners could see for themselves
the mass of reports coming in from the airborne gendarmerie, from the mobile
gendarmerie, and from the gendarmerie charged with the job of conducting
investigations, all of which reports are forwarded by us to the National
Center for Space Studies, then they would see that it is all pretty disturbing."
- M. Robert Galley, French Minister of Defense, interviewed on radio by
Jean-Claude Bourret, February 21, 1974.
- "Taking into account the facts that we have gathered
from the observers and from the location of their observations, we concluded
that there generally can be said to be a material phenomenon behind the
observations. In 60% of the cases reported here, the description of this
phenomenon is apparently one of a flying machine whose origin, modes of
lifting and/or propulsion are totally outside our knowledge." -Dr.
Claude Poher, Ph.D. in astronomy, founder and first director of GEPAN,
the UFO investigative office under the French government's National Center
for Space Sciences, which analyzed reports from the Gendarmerie from 1974
through 1978, writing in the GEPAN Report to the Scientific Committee.
- "UFOs sighted in Indonesia are identical with those
sighted in other countries. Sometimes they pose a problem for our air defense
and once we were obliged to open fire on them." - Air Marshall Roesmin
Nurjadin, Commander-in-Chief of the Indonesian Air Force, in a letter to
Yusuke J. Matsumura dated May 5, 1967, reprinted in Good ibid.
- "First of all, I told a magazine this past January
that, as an underdeveloped country with regards to the UFO problem, Japan
had to take into account what should be done about the UFO question, and
that we had to spend more time on these matters. In addition, I said that
someone had to solve the UFO problem with far reaching vision at the same
time. Secondly, I believe it is a reasonable time to take the UFO problem
seriously as a reality... I hope that this Symposium will contribute to
peace on Earth from the point of view of outer space, and take the first
step toward the international cooperation in the field of UFOs."-
Toshiki Kaifu, Prime Minister, Japan, in a letter to Mayor Shiotani of
Hakui City, dated June 24, 1990, endorsing an upcoming Space & UFO
- "I believe that UFOs are spaceships or extraterrestrial
craft... The nations of the world are currently working together in the
investigation of the UFO phenomenon. There is an international exchange
of data. Maybe when this group of nations acquires more precise and definite
information, it will be possible to release the news to the world."
-General Carlos Castro Cavero, General in the Spanish Air Force and former
Commander of Spain's Third Aerial Region, in an interview with J. J. Benitez,
La Gaceta del Norte, Balboa, Spain, June 27, 1976.
- "No agency in this country or Russia is able to
duplicate at this time the speeds and accelerations which radars and observers
indicate these flying objects are able to achieve... there are objects
coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds."-Admiral Delmer S.
Fahrney, former head of the Navy's guided-missile program, printed in New
- "UFOs are conceived and directed by intelligent
beings of a very high order, and they are propelled by distorting the gravitational
field, converting gravity into useable energy. There is no doubt in my
mind that these objects are interplanetary craft of some sort. I and my
colleagues are confident that they do not originate in our solar system,
but we feel that they may use Mars of some other body as sort of a way
station. They probably do not originate in our solar system, perhaps not
even in our galaxy." "It is my thesis that flying saucers are
real and that they are space ships from another solar system."- Dr.
Herman Oberth, the father of modern rocketry
- "I certainly believe in aliens in space. They may
not look like us, but I have very strong feelings that they have advanced
beyond our mental capabilities. "He said he was refused permission
to check the Air Force files on UFOs and added, "I think some highly
secret government UFO investigations are going on that we don't know about-and
probably never will unless the Air Force discloses them."- Senator
- "We find ourselves faced by powers which are far
stronger than we had hitherto assumed, and whose base is at present unknown
to us. More I cannot say at present. We are now engaged in entering into
closer contact with those powers, and in six or nine months time it may
be possible to speak with some precision on the matter."-Werner Von
