“It came directly overhead, and was no more than five hundred feet high so we got an excellent view of it. It had no motors, no rigging, it was noiseless. . . .a rose or sort of flame color. . . .I could observe no windows. . . .We all experienced the weirdest feeling of our lives, and sat in our tent puzzling over it for some time.”
Edwin Bauhan, one of several soldiers at Rich Field in Waco Texas, 1918, who observed a 100-150 foot long cigar-shaped object after leaving the mess hall.
Thomas E. Bearden, US Army, Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering, Colonel
Probably 50 inventors have invented [virtually cost-free energy 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. 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. Lethal force is used.
From Disclosure, Steven M. Greer
Major Jeremiah Boggs
“We were naturally anxious to get hold of one of the [UFOs]. We told pilots to do practically anything in reason, even if they had to grab one by the tail.” Major Jeremiah Boggs was in the U.S. Air Force.
US Air Force, Colonel Charles Brown
I was getting 20 to 30% improvement in efficiency on an internal combustion engine. I sponsored the US Army race team on a racing car, [and] we won a race. [Then] the Federal Trade Commission performed an illegal act. I lost my vehicle, about $100,000 worth of equipment, and a test vehicle was stolen… So in three weeks, psychologically I was wiped out. From Disclosure, Steven M. Greer
General George S. Brown
“I don’t know whether this story has ever been told or not. They weren’t called UFOs. They were called enemy helicopters. And they were only seen at night and they were only seen in certain places. They were seen up around the DMZ [demilitarized zone] in the early summer of ’68. And this resulted in quite a little battle. And in the course of this, an Australian destroyer took a hit and we never found any enemy, we only found ourselves when this had all been sorted out. And this caused some shooting there, and there was no enemy at all involved but we always reacted. Always after dark. The same thing happened up at Pleiku at the Highlands in ’69.” Brown, as U.S.A.F. Chief of Staff, addressing the appearance of UFOs during the Vietnam War at a press conference in Illinois, October 16, 1973.
Colonel Joseph J. Bryan III
“These UFOs are interplanetary devices systematically observing the earth, either manned or under remote control, or both.”
“Information on UFOs, including sighting reports, has been and is still being officially withheld.”
Bryan was founder of the CIA’s psychological warfare staff, special assistant to the secretary of the Air Force, advisor to NATO, and board member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomenon (NICAP).
Dr. Brain T. Clifford
On October 5, 1982, Dr. Brain T. Clifford of the Pentagon announced at a press conference
” that contact between U.S. citizens and extra-terrestrials or their vehicles is strictly illegal” The Star”, New York, Oct. 5, 1982
Lieutenant Colonel Lou Corbin
“The UFOs are no figment of the imagination.”
Corbin was Army Intelligence.
Colonel Philip J. Corso
“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.”
“I had the evidence that a crash did happen here….Give this information to the young people of the world and this country….They want it. Give it to them. Don’t hide it and tell lies and make stories. They’re not stupid….It’s their information. It doesn’t belong to the Army or the Department of Defense. If it’s classified, take the classification off and give it to them!”
Colonel Corso made this impassioned plea not long before his death in the summer of 1998. He was a member of President Eisenhower’s National Security Council and later went on to become head of the U.S. Army Research and Development department’s Foreign Technology Desk where he claimed to have worked with General Arthur Trudeau in “seeding” American military and industrial institutions with technology under his stewardship which came from a crashed alien craft in Roswell New Mexico.
“I was most interested in the file descriptions accompanying a two-piece set of dark elliptical eyepieces as thin as skin. The Walter Reed pathologists said they adhered to the lenses of the extraterrestrial creatures’ eyes and seemed to reflect existing light, even in what looked like complete darkness, so as to illuminate and intensity images in the darkness to allow their wearer to pick out shapes. The reports had said that the pathologists at Walter Reed hospital who autopsied one of these creatures tried to peer through them in the darkness to watch the one or two army sentries and medical orderlies walking down a corridor adjacent to the pathology lab. These figures were illuminated in a greenish orange, depending upon how they moved, but the pathologists could see only their outer shape.” Col. Philip J. Corso Sr. – ‘The Day After Roswell”
Lieutenant Colonel Lawrence J. Coyne
“With the aircraft under my control, I observed the red-lighted object closing upon the helicopter at the same altitude at a high rate of speed. It became apparent a mid-air collision was about to happen unless evasive action was taken.”
“I looked out ahead of the helicopter and observed an aircraft I have never seen before. This craft positioned itself directly in front of the moving helicopter. This craft was 50 to 60 feet long with a grey metallic structure. On the front of this craft was a large steady bright red light. I could delineate where the red stopped on the structure of this craft because red was reflecting off the grey structure. The design of this craft was symmetrical in shape with a prominent aft indentation on the undercarriage. From this portion of the undercarriage, a green light, pyramid-shaped, emerged with the light initially in the trail position. This green light then swung 90 degrees, coming directly into the front windshield and lighting up the entire cockpit of the aircraft. All colors inside the cabin of the helicopter were absorbed by this green light. That includes the instrument panel lights on the aircraft.”
“As a result of my experience, I am convinced this object was real and that these types of incidents should require a thorough investigation. It is my own personal opinion that worldwide procedures need to be established to effectively study this phenomena through an international cooperative effort. The establishment of a Transponder Code for aircraft flying worldwide is needed, to identify to ground controllers that a pilot is indeed experiencing a UFO phenomena and that pilot anxiety can be reduced to provide safe effective flying, knowing he is under radar control.”
Lt. Col. Coyne was a U.S. Army Reserve helicopter pilot with 3,000 hours of flying time. He and other three airmen had a close encounter with a UFO on the night of October 18, 1973, while flying in a U.S. Army Bell Huey utility helicopter in the vicinity of Mansfield, Ohio. Lt. Coyne described his experience at a United Nations UFO hearing in 1978.
Sergeant Major Robert O. Dean
“Wright Patterson Air Force Base… was the headquarters for the foreign technology division of the U.S. Air Force. It later became the headquarters for the alien technology division of the U.S. Air Force. Wright Patterson, for many years was the central repository of not only the hardware, but some of the little bodies and even some of the living crew members who had been retrieved. But it became very clear after a time that there wasn’t enough room at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. We literally filled up hangar after hangar with hardware. We’re storing it now in at least three different Air Force bases and much of it is being kept underground at a place not too far from Las Vegas just beyond Nellis Air Force Base which is repeatedly referred to as Dreamland, Groom Lake, or Site 51. That, today is one of the biggest repositories of hardware.”
“…They made…a recommendation to General Limnitzer, the American four star general that I worked for. And they suggested this is so sensitive … The conclusions that we have reached, we believe could be…substantially earthshaking to the people unless they’re prepared for it. We believe at this point that this should be given the highest classification NATO has’ [which] at that time was and still is Cosmic Top Secret.”
From a videotaped interview in which Dean discussed SHAPE’s alleged report entitled “An Assessment” based on a 3-year investigation of UFOs being tracked on radar over central Europe. Dean was a former NATO intelligence analyst for SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe)
Colonel Thomas Jefferson Dubose
“There were orders to ship the material from Roswell directly to Wright Field by special plane.”
Dubose was adjutant to Brig. General Roger Ramey at the time of the Roswell Incident. This statement contradicts the official story that the material was first flown to Fort Worth, Texas, where Ramey posed with Major Marcel and pieces of a weather balloon for the media.
Admiral Delmar Fahrney
“Reliable reports indicate there are objects coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds and controlled by thinking intelligences.”
A public statement, 1957.
“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.” Printed in New York Times. Admiral Fahrney was former head of the Navy’s guided-missile program.
Lieutenant Frederick Fox
“There is a [military] publication called JANAP 146E that 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.” From Disclosure, Steven M. Greer. Lieutenant was a US Navy Pilot.
Lieutenant George Gorman
“I am convinced there was thought behind the thing’s maneuvers.”
Gorman was in the North Dakota Air National Guard. In October, 1948 Gorman (flying an F51) chased a “ball of light some eight inches wide” for about thirty minutes, through a series of twists, turns and circles, nearly colliding with it on at least one occasion. The object was also witnessed from the control tower at the Fargo Airport through high-powered binoculars.
Lieutenant Walter Hautp
“The story I put out was very simple, to the effect that we had, in our possession a flying saucer. It was found on a ranch up north of Roswell. It was being flown to General Ramey’s office. The information was given to me, almost verbatim, by Colonel Blanchard. He said, “I want you to give it to the local newspapers and radio stations, and do it post haste” … The cover-up was pretty well orchestrated. I think the thought of handling it that way came down from Washington, through channels. We were told that we were all wrong, that it was just a weather balloon.”
Lieutenant Walter Hautp, Roswell Army Air Base Public Information Officer
Lt. Colonel Richard Headrick
“Saucers exist, I saw two. They were intelligently flown or operated (evasive tactics, formation flight, hovering). They were mechanisms, not United States weapons, nor Russian. I presume they are extraterrestrial.”
Headrick was a radar bombing expert, 1959.
Vice-Admiral R.H. Hillenkoetter “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. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel.” Vice-Admiral R.H. Hillenkoetter, Pacific Commander of Intelligence in W.W. II and later Director of the CIA, NICAP news release, February 27, 1960, The New York Times, Sunday, February 28, 1960: “Air Force Order on ‘Saucers’
US Air Force Lieutenant / 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], people would call and start screaming at me. One night somebody blew up my mailbox.” From Disclosure, Steven M. Greer
Major Donald E. Keyhoe
“The Air Force had put out a secret order for its pilots to capture UFOs.”
“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.
“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…”
Statement in 1953.
“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.”
“For the last six months we have been working with a congressional committee investigating official secrecy concerning proof that UFOs are real machines under intelligent control.”
From a live national broadcast, on CBS in 1958. Keyhoe had an approved script to follow, but when deviated unexpectedly from it with this astonishing statement, the audio was cut-off in the middle of his sentence, “for reasons of national security.” Keyhoe was in the United States Marine Corp.
Major General Joe W. Kelly
“Air Force interceptors still pursue Unidentified Flying Objects as a matter of national security to this country and to determine technical aspects involved.”
Kelly made this statement in 1957.
