“I can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on Earth.”
– President Harry S. Truman – White House Press Conference, April 4, 1950.
“In the councils of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together.” – President Eisenhower, January 1961.
“Colonel Holomon brought out a piece of debris that appeared be something metallic, explaining that this was material that had come from a New Mexico crash in 1947 of an extraterrestrial craft….I got an opportunity to travel with the President [Eisenhower]. He was very, very interested in what made [the UFOs] go…But Eisenhower got sold out. He realized that the [study of these technologies] was not going to be in the best hands. That was a real concern.” – Brigadier General Stephen Lovekin, US Army.
“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.
“In the firm belief that the American public deserves a better explanation than that thus far given by the Air Force, I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomenon.” – Former President Gerald Ford 28th March 1966.
“If I become President, I’ll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and scientists. I am convinced that UFOs exist because I have seen one.” – Jimmy Carter, June 1976.
“I don’t know what to make of it [UFOs]. However, some of the sightings have been witnessed by 20 to 25 people, law enforcement officers, and everyone in the cockpit of a major airplane, and so forth. But I can’t tell you what to make of it. If I knew, I’d be the only one in the world who does. But, yes, I would make these kinds of data available to the public, as President, to help resolve the mystery about it.” – Jimmy Carter, March 31, 1976.
“If the people of the world, were to discover that there was some alien life form that was going to attack the Earth approaching on Halley’s Comet, then that knowledge would unite all the peoples of the world.” – Ronald Reagan.
“At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S. President said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestrials, the United States and the Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, though I think it’s early yet to worry about such an intrusion.” – Mikhail Gorbachev.
“…if I put you over at Justice I want you to find the answers to two questions for me, One- who killed JFK. And two- are there UFOs?” – President Bill Clinton, to his friend Associate Attorney General Webster Hubbell who wrote about it in his 1997 book, “Friends in High Places”
“It was known among the high CIA people, and the people who had contact with these people, that the Clintons were on the prowl for UFOs. Bill Clinton had been asking anyone who Admiral in there, and say “By the way, tell me the UFO secret.” They would just look at him like “What planet are you from?” – William Laparl, who worked with the CIA in the early days of the Clinton Administration.
“It would be easier if I was a dictator.” – Statement by George W. Bush shortly after becoming President.
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.
