In the first minutes of the Disclosure Project's now-famous National Press Club speeches (May 9, 2001), Dr. Greer made the statement that there has
never been any recorded instance of harm come to humans by UFOs. Aside from the apparently unheard cries of the majority of the abductee community,
the below clearly argues otherwise. (Scroll down for closing comments and appeal to Disclosure Project leader Steven Greer.)
The following is from the book "UFOs: What on Earth is Happening" published in 1976 by Bantam Books, authored by John Weldon with Zola Levitt, and
is used by permission of each.
The book is now out of print, which may be why Dr. Greer is unaware of these reports. Whether he is aware of them, or chooses to ignore them, remains
yet to be seen.
"In the same way, most of those who claim contact with UFO creatures report they are friendly and concerned about the welfare of humanity. This is
the perfect deception (assuming it is a deception - AR) -- evil beings masquerading as benevolent, yet they are not benevolent. The UFO literature is
full of indications that UFO entities are evil, hostile beings of great cunning and ability.
"Major Don E. Keyhoe and others have listed many incidents where UFOs have deliberately attacked aircraft and been responsible for several deaths and
"In one amazing case in 1953, a F-89 interceptor was scrambled at Kinross AFB to investigate a UFO. The UFO followed the jet over Lake Superior. Then
the ground radar control watched amazed as the UFO merged with the F-89 on the radar scope! The jet interceptor and the UFO were locked together. The
combined blip then moved off the scope, but no trace was ever found of the two pilots, the jet, or the UFO.
Another incident involved an Air Force C-118 transport plane which was hit by some object in the air. The plane crashed, killing the pilot and the
three man crew. Prior to the crash, witnesses had seen two UFOs following the aircraft and other people had noted UFOs in the area. Some of the
reports were confirmed by Fred Emard, Chief of Police at Orting, Washington.
"In another case, Col. Lee Merkel crashed and was killed just after reporting a UFO. Other cases have undoubtedly been kept secret.
"The foremost Russian authority on UFOs, Dr. Felix Zigel of the Moscow Institute of Aviation, has stated that UFOs may have 'frightened, harassed,
and possibly even killed Russian cosmonauts on their missions.' (1)
"According to some reports, UFOs have simply destroyed planes pursuing them. Books such as Brad Steiger's Flying Saucers Are Hostile and Harold
Wilkins Flying Saucers On The Attack prove at least some of the UFOs are evil. Steiger mentions an entire African village that was destroyed by a UFO
"Jerome Clark, a leading American UFO researcher, in his article Why UFOs are Hostile mentions the possibility of 'hundreds, possibly thousands' of
people being murdered around the world by UFOs. Referring to Steiger's book, he says UFOs or their occupants have been responsible for aggravated
assault, burnings by direct ray focus, radiation sickness, murders, abductions, pursuits of cars, assaults on homes, paralysis, cremations, disrupting
power sources, etc. Clark says there is also 'no objective evidence' apart from contactee cases, that UFOs are friendly or from other planets.
Several other respected researchers as well have noted UFO hostility.
"There are also dangerous physical effects resulting from close association with UFO beings or craft. These include blackouts, blindness, sexual
assault, psychological disturbances, painful skin infections, chronic headaches, convulsive seizures and even cancer. (4)
"In the case of those who claim personal contact with extra-terrestrials (contactees), they have reported being programmed, deceived and made to look
like fools. They have experienced the loss of jobs and experienced family disruptions. Reportedly, there are frequent cases of insanity, particularly
paranoid schizophrenia, found among contactees and at times they are commanded to murder others... There is a very large number of sudden or
mysterious deaths, suicides and nervous breakdowns among UFO investigators."
"The UFO occupants themselves seem to be habitual liars. They often contradict each other and espouse obviously false beliefs, if we are to believe
those who claim contact with them. These include : Saturn's civilizations exist in subtropical paradises; Venus has forests, streams, healthy wheat
fields, suburban areas, etc; the Sun and Mercury are not hot; Pluto is not cold. They have said that man will never be permitted to set foot upon the
