The question really should be: “Who says they’re NOT real?” It’s impossible to find any government official who will flat-out say UFOs or flying saucers are not real. Check out the following quotes.
President John F. Kennedy in 1963
“I’d like to tell the public about the alien situation, but my hands are tied.”
President John F. Kennedy to Bill Holden, steward on Air Force One flying over Germany, summer 1963 When Holden asked Kennedy what he thought about UFOs.
“If I put you over at (The Dept. of) Justice, I want you to find out two things;
1. Who killed JFK.
2. The truth about UFOs.
President Bill Clinton to Webb Hubbell shortly after Clinton had been elected to his first term.
Addressing the United NationsGeneral Assembly, Forty-second Session, September 21, 1987:
“I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And, yet I ask you, is not an alien force already among us?”
When Reagan said “alien force,” he wasn’t talking about the Democrats. I have not only confirmed this quote, I also have it on videotape, and infull color. The fact of alien visitors is well known and openly discussed inside the United Nations.
Speaking of Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at the GenevaSummit Conferencein 1985, Reagan said,
“How much easier his task and mine might be in these meetings we hold if suddenly there was a threat to this world from another species from another planet outside in the universe. We’d forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries, and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together.”
President Jimmy Carter
Former President Jimmy Carter had a dramatic UFO experience when he was running for president. On his way to a two-dayreligious conferenceCarter saw a UFO. He and his entourage were so disturbed by the experience that they spent the next two days discussing UFOs and extraterrestrials instead of the planned conference agenda.
“It was the darndest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Carter. “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 flying objects in the sky.”
Although he touted himself as a humble “peanut farmer,” Carter was a sophisticated observer. He was a graduate in nuclear physics and served as an officer on U.S. Navy nuclear submarines. Carter later declared: “If I become president, I’ll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and scientists.”
In 1977, after Carter had been elected president and tried to open the UFO files, he was told by the heads of the intelligence agencies that he, as president, did not have a high enough security clearance to even SEE the files! The intelligence community had immediately gone to work to prevent Carter from investigating further.
The chief of the Air Force community relations division, Colonel Charles Senn wrote the following in a letter to Lieutenant Duward Crow of NASA: “I sincerely hope that you are successful in preventing reopening of UFO investigations.”
“In the firm belief that the American public deserves a better explanation than that thus given by the Air Force, I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomenon. I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment on this subject.”
Written while serving in Congress (in a letter sent to Mendel Rivers, chairman of the Armed Services Committee) March 28, 1966.
President Harry Truman
President Harry Truman formed the highly secret group (code named MJ-12) which stood for Majestic-12. The sole purpose of this group was to investigate UFOs and report their findings to the president. Majestic-12 was established by a special executive order of President Truman on September 24, 1947, three months after the crash at Roswell, New Mexico.
A briefing document describing the group for incoming president Dwight Eisenhower was leaked and is now available to almost anyone. I have included it in the Documents section of this website. The government denies the existence of such a group or document. The authenticity of the document cannot be proven, but the reality and the purpose of MJ-12 has been confirmed with many high-level sources over the years.
“I can assure you that flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth.”
