Profound UFO Quotes

In episode, roundtable with Red, Alex and Conner, May 14, 2015
“We had a number of reports from reputable individuals (well-educated serious-minded folks, scientists and fliers) who surely saw something.”
As Air Force Chief of Staff, in his 1965 autobiography, Mission With LeMay, stated that although the bulk of UFO reports could be explained as conventional or natural phenomena, some could not.
“Many of the mysteries might be explained away as weather balloons, stars, reflected lights, all sorts of odds and ends. I don’t mean to say that, in the unclosed and unexplained or unexplainable instances, those were actually flying objects. All I can say is that no natural phenomena could be found to account for them… Repeat again: There were some cases we could not explain. Never could.”
General Curtis LeMay
Statement from 1965 autobiography Mission With LeMay, with MacKinlay Kantor, New York: Doubleday, 1965.
In episode with Garnet Shulhauser May 9, 2015
“I have been studying now for about 2 years, on a rather intensive basis, the UFO problem. I have interviewed several hundred witnesses in selected cases, and I am astonished at what I have found.”
Dr James McDonald -Senior physicist at the Institute for Atmospheric Physics and professor in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Arizona – Oral statement to House Committee on Science and Astronautics at July 29, 1968
In episode with Toby Rogers,  May 1, 2015.
“The least improbable explanation is that these things are artificial and controlled … My opinion for some time has been that they have an extraterrestrial origin.”
Dr. Maurice Biot (leading aerodynamicists and mathematical physicist)

In episode with Sonia Brosz, April 24, 2015
“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system.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.”
Dr. Herman Oberth (The father of modern rockerty)

“I am completely convinced that UFOs have an out-of-world basis.”
Dr. Walther Riedel (Once chief designer and research director at the German rocket center in Peenemunde)
In episode James Swagger, April 17, 2015
“UFOs are impossible to deny….It is very strange that we have never been able to find out the source for over two decades.”
Colonel Fuijo Hayashi – Commander of the Air Transport Wing of Japan’s Air Self-Defense Force , statement made in 1960.

“For six hours … there were at least ten unidentifiable objects moving above Washington. They were not ordinary aircraft.”
Harry G. Barnes-Senior Air Traffic Controller for the C.A.A. discussing Washington sightings 1952.
In episode with Scott Creighton, April 4, 2015

Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFO’s. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.

-Former CIA Director, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, 1960

 

In episode with Joseph Emet, March 20, 2015

The opposite conclusion could have been drawn from The Condon Report’s content, namely, that a phenomenon with such a high ratio of unexplained cases (about 30 percent) should arouse sufficient scientific curiosity to continue its study.”
“From a scientific and engineering standpoint, it is unacceptable to simply ignore substantial numbers of unexplained observations… the only promising approach is a continuing moderate-level effort with emphasis on improved data collection by objective means… involving available remote sensing capabilities and certain software changes.”
Ronald D Story – American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics UFO Subcommittee -New York: Doubleday, 1980

In episode with Joseph Emet, March 20, 2015

“It is impossible for any man-made machine to make a sudden appearance in front of a jumbo jet that is flying 910 kilometers per hour and to remain in steady formation paralleling our aircraft. … Honestly, we were simply breathtaken.”
Japan Airlines pilot Kenju Terauchi in 1986

In episode with Art Markman, March 13, 2015

“There are of course many phenomena in this world which are not explained and it is possible to say that the orthodox scientist is the last person to accept that something new (or old) may exist which cannot be explained in accordance with his understanding of natural laws.”
Earl Alexander of Tunis, British Minister of Defense

In episode with Conner Habib, March 6, 2015

“Every time I get skeptical, I think of the other reports made by experienced pilots and radar operators, scientists, and other people who know what they are looking at. These reports were thoroughly investigated and they are still unknowns.
We have no aircraft on this earth that can at will so handily outdistance our latest jets… The pilots, radar specialists, generals, industrialists, scientists, and the man on the street who have told me, I wouldn’t have believed it either if I hadn’t seen it myself, knew what they were talking about. Maybe the Earth is being visited by interplanetary space ships.”
Captain Edward J. Ruppelt
Chief of Project Blue Book, from his book, The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects, 1956.

In episode with Ed Nightingale, Feb 27, 2015

“Cut through the ridicule and search for factual information in most of the skeptical commentary and one is usually left with nothing. This is not surprising. After all, how can one rationally object to a call for scientific examination of evidence? Be skeptical of the “skeptics.”
Bernard Haisch, Astrophysicist.
In episode with Zoltan Istvan, Feb 20, 2015
“Air Catalogue is a rather extensive library I’ve been collecting for almost 30 years from commercial, private, and test pilots. I have over 3,000 cases. My estimate is that for every pilot who does come forward, and makes a confidential or a public report, there are 20, 30 other pilots who don’t.”
NASA Research Scientist (Gemini, Apollo, Skylab), Dr. Richard Haines -DP p. 131

In episode with Eve Lorgen, Feb 16, 2015
“I wish to give you a summary of what is known in the world about ‘flying discs,’ of what is known about the opinion of qualified experts who have dealt with this matter. The problem of ‘flying discs’ has polarized the attention of the whole world, but it’s serious and it deserves to be treated seriously. Almost all the governments of the great powers are interested in it, dealing with it in a serious and confidential manner, due to its military interest.” (O’Cruzeiro magazine, Rio de Janeiro, December 11, 1954)
Colonel Brigadier General João Adil Oliveira, Chief of the Air Force General Staff Information Service,Brazil
In Paul Hellyer episode Feb 13, 2015
“I know that flying saucers exist because I myself saw one three years ago, and U.N. diplomats will not think I am crazy for saying so. I am convinced that persons from outer space are studying us, or perhaps living among us as earthlings.”
Prime Minister Eric Gairy of Grenada – Addressing the 1977-1978 General Assembly meeting of the United Nations.
In episode 101th Spectacular eh.
“I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark; on the question of government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it because it’s right; we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth; and we ought to do it because it’s the law.”
John Podesta – Bill Clinton White House Chief of Staff ,News Conference October 22, 2004

In episode 101th Spectacular eh…
“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 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.”
USAF Chief of Staff General George S. Brown
DoD Transcript of Press Conference in Illinois (10/16/1973).
In episode with Terry Ray, Jan 31, 2015
“It had a dome with ports all around it. The bottom was surrounded by colored lights like neon lights in blue, red, green and white which blinked in a sequence as if they were rotating, and in the middle there were three spheres or hemispheres.
It was a huge thing, about 100 feet in diameter, and it made no noise whatsoever. What fascinated me even more was that the object was enveloped in a kind of halo which made its entire metallic structure glow white. It flew slowly over our heads and seemed to land at a place behind a group of trees. But we couldn ‘t see or check that out because at that point it was too far away and in the middle of the moor.”
Police Constable Anthony Dodd Skipton, North Yorkshire,December 12, 1978
Object also witnessed by Police Constable Dale
In episode with David Mathisen Jan 24, 2015
“All over the world credible witnesses are reporting experiences similar to mine. Holding these people up to ridicule does not alter the existing facts. The time is long overdue for accepting the presence of these things, whatever they are and dealing with them and the public on a basis of realism.”
Frank Halstead, Former Curator of Darling Observatory, University of Minnesota

In episode with Scott Russell, Jan 18, 2015
“This can’t be laughed off.We have over three hundred reports which haven’t been publicized in the papers from very competent personnel,in many instances.
…We are running down every report.I can’t tell you how much we would give to have one of those crash in an area so that we could recover whatever they are”.
Colonel McCoy – March 17th 1948.
Air Force Scientific Advisory Board meeting at the Pentagon.

In episode with Ben Davidson Jan 14, 2015

“A 1977 poll of American astronomers, published in JSE, showed the following. Out of 2611 questionnaires 1356 were returned. In response to whether the UFO problem deserved further study the replies were: 23% certainly, 30% probably, 27% percent possibly, 17% probably not, 3% certainly not.
Interestingly, there was a positive correlation between the amount of reading done on the subject and the opinion that further study was in order…”
Bernard Haisch, Astrophysicist
In episode with Randall Carlson Jan 3, 2014
“Sightings of unexplained objects at great altitude and traveling at high speeds in the vicinity of major US defense installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.”
Dr .H Marshall Chadwell, former assistant director of the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence, in a December, 1952 memo to then-director of the CIA, General Walter B. Smith.

In episode with Alex Tsakiris, Dec 28, 2014
“Reports of anomalous aerial objects (AAO) appearing in the atmosphere continue to be made by pilots of almost every airline and air force of the world in addition to private and experimental test pilots..
We’re not dealing with mental projections or hallucinations on the part of the witness but with a real physical phenomenon.”
Dr. Richard Haines, Psychologist specializing in pilot and astronaut “human factors” research for the Ames NASA Research Center in California-Chief of the Space Human Factors Office.

In Episode with Robert Waggoner, Dec 16, 14
“The definitive resolution of the UFO enigma will not come about unless and until the problem is subjected to open and extensive scientific study by the normal procedures of established science.
In their public statements (but not necessarily in their private statements), scientists express a generally negative attitude towards the UFO problem, and it is interesting to try to understand this attitude. Most scientists have never had the occasion to confront evidence concerning the UFO phenomenon.”
Dr. Peter A. Sturrock, Professor of Space Science and Astrophysics and Deputy Director of the Center for Space Sciences and Astrophysics at Stanford University (Survey of American Astronomical Society)

In episode with Paul Elder, Dec 10, 2014

“Three objects appeared beneath the clouds, their color a rather bright red. As they approached the ship they appeared to soar, passing above the broken clouds. After rising above the clouds they appeared to be moving directly away from the earth. The largest had an apparent area of about six suns. It was egg-shaped, the larger end forward. The second was about twice the size of the sun, and the third, about the size of the sun. Their near approach to the surface appeared to be most remarkable. That they did come below the clouds and soar instead of continuing their southeasterly course is also curious. The lights were in sight for over two minutes and were carefully observed by three people whose accounts agree as to the details.”
A sighting by the U.S.S. Supply off of the eastern coast of Korea,February 28, 1904, Korea -as reported by then Lt. Frank H. Schofield, later to become Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Fleet.

In Episode with Robert Sullivan iv, Dec 6, 14

“We had many adventures flying under primitive conditions in the frozen north, but none compared with this.” “I looked back and saw something that didn’t make sense,” “It was nothing like flying machines of that period,” “It was hexagonal, flat, and seemingly made of aluminum or some other metal, with no breaks in the surface and no rivets.” “At the time, I had a spooky feeling. I can’t explain it. It was as if I ‘felt’ the presence of whoever was inside that craft–and the feeling was hostile.”
Lieutenant Colonel Peter Grunnet-Royal Danish Air force, describing incident in H. E. 8 seaplane over Greenland,1932.

In episode with Matthew Williams, Nov 28, 14

“More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any scientific explanation, eg that they are hallucinations, the effects of light refraction, meteors, wheels falling from aeroplanes, and the like. They have been tracked on radar screens and the observed speeds have been as great as 9,000 mph. I am convinced that these objects do exist and they are not manufactured by any nation on earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from an extraterrestrial source.”
Air Chief Marshall Lord Dowding, Commanding Officer of the RAF during WWII.

In episode with Jim Vandeventer, Nov 22, 2014

“Skeptics, who flatly deny the existence of any unexplained phenomenon in the name of ‘rationalism,’ are among the primary contributors to the rejection of science by the public. People are not stupid and they know very well when they have seen something out of the ordinary. When a so-called expert tells them the object must have been the moon or a mirage, he is really teaching the public that science is impotent or unwilling to pursue the study of the unknown.”
Dr. Jacques Vallee, astrophysicist
In episode with Laird Scranton, Nov 15, 14

“The most spectacular UFO incident in Indonesia occurred when during the height of President Sukarno’s confrontation in Malaysia, UFOs penetrated a well defended area in Java for two weeks at a stretch, and each time were welcomed with perhaps the heaviest anti-aircraft barrage in history.”
Air Commodore J. Salutun, National Aerospace Council of Indonesia, and a Member of the Indonesian Parliament in 1967.

In episode with Laird Scranton, Nov 15, 14

“And don’t tell me they were reflections, I know they were solid objects.”
Lieutenant D. A Swimley, USAF in 1953 following the sighting of 8 UFOs that were confirmed on radar and witnessed numerous other people including commercial pilots and police officers.
In episode with Rick Strassman, Nov 5, 2014

“From their maneuvers and their terrific speed I am certain their flight performance was greater than any aircraft known today.”Colonel Carl Sanderson

USAF, commenting on his sighting of two circular silver UFOs in close proximity to his plane over Hermanas, New Mexico. The UFOs were said to make a series of seemingly impossible maneuvers before disappearing at an astonishing speed and showing up again over El Paso, Texas.
In episode with Dan Carlin Nov 2, 2014

“I’m not at liberty to discuss the governments knowledge of extraterrestrial UFO’s at this time. I am still personally being briefed on the subject.”
President Richard M. Nixon

“I can assure you the flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth.”
President Harry S. Truman – Press conference, Washington DC, April 4, 1950.

“While working under President Eisenhower,I discovered that Eisenhower had a keen interest in UFOs, but that he came to realise that he had lost control of the subject.”
Brigadier General Steven Lovekin

 In episode with Adam Gorightly Oct 26, 2014

“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.”
“I believe that the attitude of spirit that we must adopt vis-à-vis this phenomena is an open one, that is to say that it doesn’t consist in denying apriori, as our ancestors of previous centuries did deny many things that seem nowadays perfectly elementary.”
M. Robert Galley – French Minister of Defense. From an interview by Jean-Claude Bourret, on February 21, 1974.

In episode with Margaret DeWys  Oct 9, 2014

“There are unidentified flying objects. That is, there are a hard core of cases – perhaps 20 to 30 percent in different studies – for which there is no explanation… We can only imagine what purpose lies behind the activities of these quiet, harmlessly cruising objects that time and again approach the earth. The most likely explanation, it seems to me, is that they are simply watching what we are up to.” (Redbook, vol. 143, September 1974.)
Dr. Margaret Mead, world-renowned Anthropologist.

In episode with Patty Greer Sept 26, 2014

“The object came low over the harbor. It hovered over a moored ship 465 feet in length. A comparison to the size of the ship would place the UFO at about 350 feet in diameter. After a while, a smaller object separated from the main body and fell straight down, disappearing under the water. At that moment, the main part suddenly accelerated and disappeared.
In my opinion,what was seen over Petrozavodsk was either a UFO, a carrier of high intelligence with crew and passengers, or it was a field of energy created by one.”
Vladimir Azhazha, a Moscow Physicist and Oceanographer.

In episode with Micah Hanks Sept 19, 2014

“The one thing about these briefings that never failed to amaze me, although it happened time and time again, was the interest in UFOs within scientific circles. As soon as the word spread that Project Blue Book was giving official briefings to groups with the proper security clearances, we had no trouble in getting scientists to swap free advice for a briefing. I might add that we briefed only groups who were engaged in government work and who had the proper security clearances solely because we could discuss any government project that might be of help to us in pinning down the UFO. Our briefings weren’t just squeezed in either; in many instances we would arrive at a place to find that a whole day had been set aside to talk about UFOs. And never once did I meet anyone who laughed off the whole subject of flying saucers even though publicly these same people had jovially sloughed off the press with answers of ‘hallucinations,’ ‘absurd’, or ‘a waste of time and money.’ They weren’t wild-eyed fans but they were certainly interested.”
Capt. Edward J. Ruppelt -Chief of Project Bluebook

In episode with Rene DeFazio and Tamara Veitch  Sept 12, 2014

“One night in 1968 while on an operation in the Caribbean, I went up to the open bridge to relieve the watch. At 23:45, the other watch section wouldn’t leave – this is really unusual because typically they want to get what’s left of the mid-rats (sandwiches and soup served on the mess deck) and hit the rack However, they stayed to observe two UFO’s that were being tracked on radar by CIC.
They were tracking two bright lights, that didn’t answer up to IFF – they weren’t enemy, friend, foe or commercial aircraft. And were flying at speeds in excess of 400 knots and making turns at right angles. Nothing we knew of could do this but they did.
We saw them hover over the water within eyesight at about a few thousand yards, one submerging and the other as if standing guard above, waiting for the other to resurface. When it emerged, they buzzed off in formation at about a 45-degree angle to exit our planet. As they became distant, turned color from a bright white to a burning amber, and disappearing within about 10 seconds.”
Bridgewatchman G M Brinkman aboard the USS Waldron,1968-Near Puerto Rico

In episode with CJ Werleman, Sept 6, 2014

“I feel that the Air Force has not been giving out all the available information on the Unidentified Flying Objects. You cannot disregard so many unimpeachable sources.”
John W. McCormack, Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States. January (1965)

“I certainly believe in aliens in space, and that they are indeed visiting our planet. They may not look like us, but I have very strong feelings that they have advanced beyond our mental capabilities.”

Senator Barry Goldwater (1965) (Retired Air Force Brigadier General and pilot with many decades of flying experience)

In episode with Oscar Miro-Quesada, Aug 21, 2014

“I saw something in the sky that I didn’t know what it was,it was over Highway Two about fifteen hundred feet, a large, lighted ball about six feet in diameter. It was going toward the beach very slowly.I was in the parking lot of the Hilton when they called me from the police department.They told me to go to the beach because a great many people were watching this object.
When I got there, the object was already hovering over the water about two or three miles off the beach. There were about five hundred people watching. There are about four public housing areas right there and all the people from the housing areas were there. I saw one light coming down but when I got to the beach I noticed there were two objects in the water, not together but about a mile away from each other. They were hovering over the water, right about at the water level.
Because of the distance I couldn’t tell if it was a few feet over the water or if they were actually touching the water. The first object stayed about an hour but the second one lasted at least four hours.
People came out of their houses to see the view and people came in cars, parked on the side of the street and went to the beach to see what was happening. I stayed until midnight, mostly keeping an eye on the group so there wouldn’t be any problems.
It was pretty high, like an orange-yellow light. I don’t know exactly the size. As it came down it got larger. It was pretty good sized.
The police got many, many phone calls, all night. We called the Coast Guard but they didn’t come. They said it wasn’t an emergency.
I think they were mystery objects. I was impressed by what I saw.There were many other officers who saw this.”
Mayagüez Police Lieutenant Cesar Grácia -1977, Mayaquez, Puerto Rico – on witnessing two Large Glowing UFOs Enter & Emerge from Ocean.

Dr. Robert M. L. Baker, Jr., President of West Coast University; author of two astrodynamics textbooks; head of Lockheed’s Astrodynamics Research Center (1961-64); member of the faculty of Astronomy and Engineering at UCLA (1959-71).
In 1968, he made the following statement concerning the one U.S. radar system in operation at that time that, to his knowledge, exhibited sufficient continuous coverage to reveal UFOs operating above the earth’s atmosphere:
“The system is partially classified and, hence, I cannot go into great detail… Since this particular sensor system has been in operation, there have been a number of anomalistic alarms. Alarms that, as of this date, have not been explained on the basis of natural phenomena interference, equipment malfunction or inadequacy, or man-made space objects.”
(1968 Congressional Hearings)
Dr. Robert M. L. Baker, Jr.

“Army intelligence has recently said that “the matter of ‘Unidentified Aircraft’ or ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’,otherwise known as ‘Flying Discs’,’Flying Saucers’, and ‘Balls of fire’ is considered top secret by intelligence officers of both the army and the air forces.”
FBI issued memo on UFOs entitled “Protection of Vital Installations”

In Episode with Philip Comella Aug 7, 2014

“I doubt that the phenomenon was any terrestrial reflection, because… nothing of the kind has ever appeared before or since… I was so unprepared for such a strange sight that I was really petrified with astonishment.”
Dr. Clyde W. Tombaugh, American astronomer who discovered the planet Pluto. On August 20, 1949, he observed a UFO that appeared as a geometrically arranged group of six-to-eight rectangles of light, window-like in appearance and yellowish-green in color, which moved from northwest to southeast over Las Cruces, New Mexico.

In episode with Randall Carlson Aug 2, 2014

“My own present opinion, based on two years of careful study, is that UFOs are probably extraterrestrial devices engaged in something that might very tentatively be termed ‘surveillance’.”
Dr James McDonald before Congress, 1968.

“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.”
Colonel Joseph J. Bryan III, founder member of the CIAs psychological warfare staff, advisor to NATO

In episode with Patti Conklin, July 26, 2014

“It was about 10 o’clock and we had just set up our equipment after the helicopter left,when we saw a silvery object, shining in the sun, appear over a small ridge below us. It had a flattened-out look and our first reaction was that it was some kind of delta-wing aircraft. We soon realized it was not.The object was about 50 ft. in diameter,on top of its dome there was a little knob, and around the base of the dome there were circular markings. They might have been some kind of riveting, or even windows. They were a bit too small to tell.
Below these, on the face of the disc itself, there were larger rectangular markings which could have been glass or metallic. Our impression was that they were windows. As far as we could see, there were three of them.
It climbed slowly, then all of a sudden it was off- it shot over the ridge, made a sharp turn without skidding and was out of sight in about 20 seconds. We figured it had gone 20 or 25 miles by the time it disappeared.”
John Hembling – Chief Geologist and Mining Exploration Manager – witnessed object with another geologist on reconnaissance survey of British Columbia,July 1965

In Episode with Dave McGowan, July 18

“We had objects with four-way confirmation – ground visual, ground radar, airborne visual, airborne radar. It doesn’t get any better than that. In my following of unusual aerial phenomena for the past 50 years, there seems to be some reason to discredit very viable and very reputable witnesses when they say something is unidentified.”
US Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Lieutenant Colonel Charles Brown -DP p. 247

In episode with Joseph Gallenberger July 14, 2014

“The possibility of reduced-time interstellar travel either by advanced extraterrestrial civilizations at present or ourselves in the future, is not fundamentally constrained by physical principles.”

Dr. Harold Puthoff (Director, Institute for advanced studies at Austin, Author of fundamentals of Quantum Electronics)

In episode with Joseph Gallenberger, July 14, 2014

“I must admit that any favorable mention of the flying saucers by a scientist amounts to extreme heresy and places the one making the statement in danger of excommunication by the scientific theocracy. Nevertheless, in recent years I have investigated the story of the unidentified flying object (UFO), and I am no longer able to dismiss the idea lightly.” (Paper on “Exobiology” presented at the First Annual Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium, held at the United States Air Force Academy, in May 1964).
Dr. Frank B. Salisbury, Professor of Plant Physiology at Utah State University

in Episode with Sara Chetkin July 4, 2014

“Unidentified flying objects are a very serious subject which we must study fully. We appeal to all viewers to send us details of strange flying craft seen over the territories of the Soviet Union. This is a serious challenge to science and we need the help of all Soviet citizens.”
“Observations show that UFOs behave ‘sensibly.’ In a group formation flight, they maintain a pattern. They are most often spotted over airfields, atomic stations and other very new engineering installations. On encountering aircraft, they always maneuver so as to avoid direct contact. A considerable list of these seemingly intelligent actions gives the impression that UFOs are investigating, perhaps even reconnoitering… The important thing now is for us to discard any preconceived notions about UFOs and to organize on a global scale a calm, sensation-free and strictly scientific study of this strange phenomenon. The subject and aims of the investigation are so serious that they justify all efforts. It goes without saying that international cooperation is vital.”
Dr. Felix Y. Zigel, Professor of mathematics and astronomy at the Moscow Aviation Institute

“The Central Intelligence Agency has reviewed the current situation concerning unidentified flying objects which have created extensive speculation in the press and have been the subject of concern to Government organizations… Since 1947, approximately 2,000 official reports of sightings have been received and of these, about 20% are as yet unexplained.”
“It is my view that this situation has possible implications for our national security which transcend the interests of a single service. A broader, coordinated effort should be initiated to develop a firm scientific understanding of the several phenomena which apparently are involved in these reports…” (1952 memorandum to the National Security Council.)
General Walter Bedell Smith, Director of the CIA from 1950-53

In episode with Rupert Sheldrake July 8, 2014

“The UFO incident occurred on the USS John F. Kennedy in the summer of 1971. We observed a large, glowing sphere over the ship. It looked huge. I would say it was anywhere from three or four hundred feet to a quarter of a mile depending on how high it was. A few days later, the Commanding Officer looked at the camera – and I will never forget this – and he said, “I would like to remind the crew that certain events that take place on board a major combat vessel are considered classified and should not be discussed with anyone without a need to know.”
US Navy, National Security Agency, James Kopf -DP p. 203

In episode with Rupert Sheldrake July 8, 2014

“50,000 virtually reliable people have reported sighting unidentified flying objects… From available information, the UFO phenomenon appears to have been global in nature for almost 50,000 years. This leaves us with the unpleasant possibility of alien visitors to our planet, or at least of alien controlled UFO’s. The best thing to do is to keep an open and skeptical mind, and not take an extreme position on any side of the question”
USAF “Introductory Space Science”, Volume II – Deparment of Physics, USAF

In Episode with Dr. Kevin Barrett, March 1, 2014

“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 the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”
Admiral Hillenkoetter-the first Director of the CIA, 1947-50.
February 27, 1960.

In Episode with Dr. Don Easterbrook, March 29, 2014

“According to worthy information of faith, in our atmosphere objects arrive at high speed. No aircraft, neither in the United States, either in the Soviet Union is currently able to achieve the speed attributed to these objects from the radars and from the observatories. These objects appear to be driven by an intelligence the way in which they fly. According to reports from scientists and technical personnel, these objects fly in formation and finish manoeuvres that seem to point out that are not completely driven from an automatic equipment. These objects are in incontestable mode the result of long investigations and highly technological and exceptional knowledge.”
Admiral S. Fahrney,head of missile testing for the American Navy

In Episode with Dr. Chris Ryan, April 18, 2014

“I have frequently been asked why a person of my background ‘a former Chief of the Defence Staff, a former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee’ why I think there is a cover-up (of) the facts about UFOs. I believe governments fear that if they did disclose those facts, people would panic. I don’t believe that at all. There is a serious possibility that we are being visited by people from outer space. It behoves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want.”

“Headquarters wouldn’t let us go after it and we played around a little bit. We got to watching how it made 90 degree turns at this high speed and everything. We knew it wasn’t a missile of any type, so then we confirmed it with the radar control station, and they kept following it, and then it crashed somewhere off between Texas and the Mexico border.”
Colonel Robert Willingham, USAF from an Sworn Affidavit in the 1970’s when discussing a sighting of a UFO whilst he was navigating an F94 jet on September 6th 1950.

“Congressional investigations…are still being held on the problem of unidentified flying objects and the problem is one in which there is quite a bit of interest.
Since most of the material presented to the committee is classified, the hearings are never printed.”
Congressman William H. Ayres, 1958.

“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.”
Lt. Colonel Richard Headrick, radar bombing expert, 1959.

“I have discussed this matter with the effected agencies of the government, and they are of the opinion that is it not wise to publicize this matter at this time.”
Senator Richard Russell, head of the Armed Services Committee, following his sighting of a UFO during an official trip to the Soviet Union in 1955

“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…”
Admiral Lord Hill-Norton (GCB), Chief of Defense Staff, Ministry of Defense, Britain; Chairman, Military Committee of NATO; Admiral of the Fleet; Member of House of Lords.

“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 catergoricaly that mysterious objects have indeed appeared and continue to appear in the sky that surrounds us.”

“UFO sightings are now so common,the military doesn’t have time to worry about them….When a UFO appears,they simply ignore it.Unconventional targets are ignored because apparently we are only interested in the Russian targets,possible enemy targets.Something that hovers in the air ,then shoots off at 5000 miles per hour doesn’t interest us because it can’t be the enemy.
UFOs are picked up by ground and air radar and they have been photographed by gun camera all along.There are so many UFOs in the sky that the airforce has had to employ special radar networks to screen them out.”
Lee Katchen,
NASA atmospheric physicist,June 7th,1968

In episode with Nick Pope and John Burroughs, June 28th, 2014
“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.

In Episode with Jim Harold, March 8, 2014
“The Air Force has arrived at the conclusion that a certain number of anomalous phenomena has been produced in Belgian airspace.
The numerous testimonies of ground observations reinforced by the reports of the night March 30-31 (1990) have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorised aerial activities have taken place.
The day will undoubtedly come when the phenomenon will be observed with the 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 be present.
But it exists, it is real, and that in itself is an important conclusion.”
Colonel Wilfred De Brouwer, Chief of Operations for the Belgian Air Force in 1990 following a spate of sightings over the country witnessed by hundreds of people. Many of the sightings were confirmed on radar.

“I shall be very glad to accept appointment as a member of the (NICAP) Board of Governors and be listed as a ‘believer’ in the reality of UFO’s, with the understanding that I shall resign if it appears at any time that your big group is being used to cover up for the top brass.
I know that there is a real need to break through the official Washington brush-off and get the truth home to the people. There seems to be a great fear among the powers that be that the American people will panic if told the truth. How little they know and understand their countrymen.
I feel that millions of our people already believe in the reality of the UFO’s.”
Admiral M Herbert B Knowles
US Navy

In Episode with John Perkins, March 22, 2014
“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. From the point of view of ‘people’ in outer space, all human beings on earth are the same people, regardless of whether they are American, Russian, Japanese, or whoever.”
Japanese Prime Minister Toshiki Kaifu – From an interview with students of Waseda University in Tokyo in November 1989.
In Episode with Robert Schoch, April 25, 2014
“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.”
Lieutenant Colonel Lawrence J. Coyne describing UFO encounter he witnessed with three other airmen over Mansfield Ohio,October 18, 1973.

“Everything is in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as in the rest of the world… Look, as a General, as a military man, I have the same position as the one officially held by the Ministry [of Defense]. Now, from a personal position, as Carlos Castro Cavero, 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 acquire more precise and definite information, it will be possible to release the news to the world.”
“I myself have observed one [UFO] for more than an hour… It was an extremely bright object, which remained stationary there for that length of time and then shot off towards Egea de los Caballeros, covering the distance of twenty kilometers in less than two seconds. No human device is capable of such a speed.”
General Carlos Castro Cavero ,Spanish Air Force – From a 1976 interview with journalist J.J. Benítez.

In Episode with Terry Tibando, April 4, 2014
“We have, indeed, been contacted – perhaps even visited – by extraterrestrial beings, and the U.S. government, in collusion with the other national powers of the earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.”
“The purpose of the international conspiracy is to maintain a workable stability among the nations of the world and for them, in turn, to retain institutional control over their respective populations. Thus, for these governments to admit that there are beings from outer space… with mentalities and technological capabilities obviously far superior to ours, could, once fully perceived by the average person, erode the foundations of the earth’s traditional power structure. Political and legal systems, religions, economic and social institutions could all soon become meaningless in the mind of the public. The national oligarchical establishments, even civilization as we now know it, could collapse into anarchy.”
“Such extreme conclusions are not necessarily valid, but they probably accurately reflect the fears of the ‘ruling classes’ of the major nations, whose leaders (particularly those in the intelligence business) have always advocated excessive governmental secrecy as being necessary to preserve ‘national security.”
Victor Marchetti – Former Special Assistant to the Executive Director of the CIA, May 1979.
In episode with Denny Unger, May 29, 2014
“There are too many independent eyewitness reports to ignore. Too many of the reports describe coherent physical effects, and there is an agreement among the accounts concerning what was observed… But of course there are also physical effects. The Air Force report [of the F-16 jet scramble incident on the night of March 30-31, 1990] allows us to approach the problem in a rational and scientific way. The simplest hypothesis is that the reports are caused by extraterrestrial visitors, but that hypothesis carries with it other problems. We are not in a rush to form a conclusion, but continue to study the mystery.”
Dr. Auguste Meessen, Professor of physics at the Catholic University in Louvain.

In episode with Denny Unger, May 29, 2014
“The phenomenon seems to be real… The general coherence of sighting reports worldwide should not leave researchers indifferent. One does not conceive objective arguments to justify an attitude that would avoid at all cost these observations… The risk is, at worst, to confirm the existence of unknown vehicles appearing erratically into our atmosphere – a hypothesis that seems to explain nearly all reported aspects of the phenomenon and could be linked to the current (1970) exobiology branch of space research.” (1971 Statistical Study prepared for the CNES and French officials.)
Dr. Claude Poher, expert on aeronautics, astronomy and astronautics, engineer at the French Space Agency (CNES) for thirty years
In Episode with Dr. Kevin Barrett, March 1, 2014
“The type of UFO reports that are most intriguing are close-range sightings of machine-like objects of unconventional nature and unconventional performance characteristics, seen at low altitudes, and sometimes even on the ground. The general public is entirely unaware of the large number of such reports that are coming from credible witnesses… When one starts searching for such cases, their number are quite astonishing. Also, such sightings appear to be occurring all over the globe.” (Hearings before the Committee on Science and Astronautics, U.S. House of Representatives, July 29, 1968.)
Dr. James E. McDonald, Senior Physicist at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Arizona.
“The Central Intelligence Agency has reviewed the current situation concerning unidentified flying objects which have created extensive speculation in the press and have been the subject of concern to Government organizations… Since 1947, approximately 2,000 official reports of sightings have been received and of these, about 20% are as yet unexplained.”

“It is my view that this situation has possible implications for our national security which transcend the interests of a single service. A broader, coordinated effort should be initiated to develop a firm scientific understanding of the several phenomena which apparently are involved in these reports…” (1952 memorandum to the National Security Council.)
General Walter Bedell Smith, Director of the CIA from 1950-53

“From the earliest days of the modern outbreak of sightings some forty years ago, there is a quite remarkable similarity between the descriptions given by observers of the flying vehicles. It is the more remarkable that there have been tens of thousands of these reports, from observers who range who range from illiterate peasants in Argentina and Spain to people with Ph.D.s in other countries and they have all been given spontaneously—which has led to the generic term “flying saucer.”
“There have been thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of sightings and encounters, physical results and of the latter, by people all over the world whose evidence on any other subject would be accepted without question. There have been major investigations lasting thirty or forty years by the governments of the USA, Russia and France, for certain, and probably Britain and other countries.”

“We use the best equipment to detect objects in our skies…even strange ones, with great results. We can distinguish between a commercial plane or other objects with our modern equipment. Concretely,from the United States,that are highly qualified sources of information,that we are inside an environment in which we have unidentified objects. Concretely, they are extraterrestrial objects,of that I am sure.We share the universe with other beings.”
Colonel Wilson Salgado. Commandant FAE-COS-1, Ecuadorian Military.

In episode with Len Kasten, June 7th, 2014
“I slammed on some power, hauled the nose up and prayed we’d go over top of that thing. Just as we started to climb, this thing swept straight up, did an impossible right angle turn and begins to pace us. I don’t see how ANYTHING could have executed a maneuver like that — I mean almost a simultaneous two-directional turn — up and to the right, not to mention coming to damned near a dead stop”
“Now comes, the wacky part of the whole thing. While we were watching the UFO, suddenly this other glowing thing drops out from underneath it. The damned thing drops out from underneath it. The damned thing looked a neon-green smoke ring. It dropped away from the larger UFO down toward the water … and submerged! We saw the glowing green circle of water where it went in, and then the glow disappeared!
“Seconds later, two more green rings dropped out. The second one dropped away and submerged like the first one, but the third one dropped down and then shot straight ahead to disappear toward the coast.”
Captain Hammel, TWA pilot over Atlantic ocean – object(s) also witnessed by Co Pilot Dickson, December 22, 1977

  1. he sucks you in with stories of poverty in saskatchewan, catholic, big family, natch, and the rest is so full of it. I loved the question about waking up with a sound in a dream instantaneous with an external sound. His explanation is a joke. And so is he. I waited his sales pitch. Yup, he’s no more than a 21st Century snake oil salesman.

    Yeah seen lots of things move up in the sky, some are real and some are ARVs, alien reproduction vehicles from whatever sector. Like I am one of the most important real contactees and know the differences, in lots of them things up there in the sky. Thanx.
