The Cover-up: UFOs
Mercury & Gemini Astronaut, Colonel Gordon Cooper
A saucer flew right over, put down three landing gears, and landed on the dry lakebed. [The cameramen] went out there with their cameras towards the UFO. It lifted off and flew off at a very high rate of speed… I had a chance to hold [the film] up to the window. Good close-up shots. There was no doubt that it was made someplace other than on this earth. pp. 226-227. See also Gordon Cooper & Bruce Henderson, Leap of Faith: An Astronaut’s Journey into the Unknown, pp. 80-91.
FAA Chief of Accidents and Investigations, John Callahan
The UFO was bouncing around the 747. [It] was a huge ball with lights running around it….Well, I’ve been involved in a lot of cover-ups with the FAA. When we gave the presentation to the Reagan staff, they had all those people swear that this never happened. But they never had me swear it never happened. I can tell you what I’ve seen with my own eyes. I’ve got a videotape. I’ve got the voice tape. I’ve got the reports that were filed that will confirm what I’ve been telling you. pp. 80 – 85.
United Kingdom Chief of Defense (1971 – 73), Admiral Lord Peter Hill-Norton
I have frequently been asked why a person of my background—a former Chief of the Defense Staff, a former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee—why I think there is a cover-up [of] the facts about UFOs. Governments fear that if they did disclose those facts, people would panic. I don’t believe that at all. I’ve said so in print. There is a serious possibility that we are being visited by people from outer space. It behooves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. pp. 305 – 307.
Director of CIA, Admiral R.H. Hillenkoetter
It is time for the truth to be brought out in open Congressional hearings. Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel. p. 58, quoted from New York Times, February 28, 1960, p. L30. Click here to see original archived article.
US Navy Pilot, Frederick Fox
Publication JANAP 146E has a section that says you will not reveal any information regarding the UFO phenomenon under penalty of $10,000 fine and ten years in jail. So the secret has been kept. pp. 145, 146.
UFO Message: Don’t Mess With Nuclear Weapons
US Air Force, FAA, Captain Robert Salas
[The security guard called and] said, “Sir, there’s a glowing red object hovering right outside the front gate. I’ve got all the men out here with their weapons drawn.” We lost between 16 to 18 ICBMs [nuclear-tipped InterContinental Ballistic Missiles] at the same time UFOs were in the area and were observed by airmen….[A high-ranking Air Force Officer] said, “Stop the investigation; do no more on this and do not write a final report.” I heard that many of the guards that reported this incident were sent off to Viet Nam. pp. 168-171.
US Air Force, Professor Robert Jacobs
So this thing [UFO] fires a beam of light at the warhead, hits it and then it moves to the other side and fires another beam of light. And the warhead tumbles out of space. What message would I interpret from that? [The UFOs were telling us] don’t mess with nuclear warheads….Major Mannsman said, “You are never to speak of this again.” After an article [about the incident years later], I would get phone calls all night long. People would call and start screaming at me. One night somebody blew up my mailbox. pp. 184, 187.
More Cover-up: Advanced Technologies Developed from UFOs
Russian Air Force, Space Communications Center, General Vasily Alexeyev
As a rule, [places where UFOs appear] are objects of strategic significance… .[The Air Force] came up with a table with pictures of all the shapes of UFOs that had ever been recorded—about fifty—ranging from ellipses and spheres to something resembling spaceships….The study of UFOs may reveal some new forms of energy, or at least bring us closer to a solution. pp. 345–347.
Apollo 14 Astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, Ph.D. (Aeronautics, MIT, sixth man to walk on moon)
Yes, there have been ET visitations. There have been crashed craft. There have been material and bodies recovered. There has been a certain amount of reverse engineering that has allowed some of these craft, or some components, to be duplicated. And there is some group of people that may or may not be associated with government at this point that have this knowledge. They have been attempting to conceal this knowledge. People in high level government have very little, if any, valid information about this. It has been the subject of disinformation in order to deflect attention and create confusion so the truth doesn’t come out. pp. 61-64. See also The Way of the Explorer, Edgar Mitchell, Dwight Williams, p. 212.
US Air Force, Intelligence Operative, Master Sergeant Dan Morris
UFOs are both extraterrestrial and manmade….It’s not that our government doesn’t want us to know that there are people on other planets. What the people in power don’t want us to know is that this free energy [from energy generators developed with UFO technology] is available to everybody. So secrecy about the UFOs is because of the energy issue. When this knowledge is found out by the people, they will demand that our government release this technology, and it will change the world. pp. 364.
US Army, Colonel Thomas E. Bearden
Probably 50 inventors have invented [virtually freeenergy systems]. If we use these systems, we can clean up this biosphere. But, what we have is a situation where the entire structure of science, industry, and the patent office are against you. I’ve been a victim of quite a bit of suppression. And behind this, we have a few people who are quite wealthy. The more powerful the agency, the more they will resort not only to legal, but to extra-legal means to suppress their competition. pp. 534 – 542. See also www.cheniere.org.
The Grand War Plan: It’s All Based on a Lie
Fairchild Industries Corporate Manager, Von Braun’s Spokesperson, Dr. Carol Rosin
[In 1974, founder of modern rocket science Wernher] Von Braun told me that the reasons for space-based weaponry were all based on a lie. He said the strategy was to use scare tactics—that first the Russians, then terrorists are going to be considered the enemy. The next enemy was asteroids. “The last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens, and all of it is a lie.”….I was at a meeting in Fairchild Industries in the War Room. The conversation [was] about how they were going to antagonize these enemies and at some point, there was going to be a Gulf War. Now this is 1977! pp. 255-259. See www.peaceinspace.com.
Disclosure Project, Founder and Director, Steven M. Greer, M.D.
The government—as you and I might think of it—is really quite outside the loop. Leaders in the Pentagon who I have briefed have no more access to such projects than any other civilian—unless they are on the “inside.” We have insiders and scientists who can prove that we possess energy generation systems capable of completely replacing all forms of currently used energy generation. Every single person who is concerned about the environment and the human future should call for urgent hearings to allow these technologies to be disclosed, declassified, and safely applied. pp. 14, 15, 567.
