The Disclosure Project, a nonprofit research and public interest group based in Charlottesville Virginia (www.disclosureproject.org...) has obtained testimony from multiple, independent corroborating sources that President Carter was denied access to sensitive UFO files.
A former Defense Intelligence Agency official, a senior Stanford Research Institute policy analyst and famed constitutional attorney Daniel Sheehan have all confirmed that President Carter's attempts to obtain UFO information was thwarted by illegal actions by rogue military and intelligence entities.
Mr. John Maynard, Defense Intelligence Agency, ret.: "I'm a retired intelligence analyst…was in the military for 21 years and started off with the Army Intelligence Security Agency as an analyst. I went on to work for several different organizations with the military and ended up with the DIA…in charge of…the documents for the Requirements and Evaluation division. In Europe, I researched these UFO reports and we got quite a bit of information about the sightings….drawings of what the vehicles looked like, whether they landed or not, whether they saw any …extraterrestrials….it made for an exciting career. They [the reports] were going to the CIA …the DIA…the Air Force Office of Special Intelligence…But as far as UFO and intelligence and extraterrestrial matters go, it's right at the top - and I would say that the president has limited knowledge of it. I know that Carter did not have any knowledge whatsoever. And I worked there with…. President Carter's organization."
Dr. Alfred Webre, Senior Policy Analyst: "I hold a BS degree from Yale…a law degree from Yale Law School…a Master's of Education in Counseling from UT...I was a Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for Study of Social Policy at Stanford Research Institute [SRI]. I worked on the 1977 Carter White House Extraterrestrial Communication Project. The goal of the study was to fill the knowledge gap on this subject….and would include data on UFOs and EBE's [Extraterrestrial biological entities], of which there have been many sightings. It would have gone to as many foreign countries as possible; France…the then Soviet Union…China…under the aegis of the National Science Foundation. The project was terminated. They [management of SRI] had received direct communications from the Pentagon that if the study went forward, SRI's contracts with the Pentagon [which were many] would be terminated. He [my SRI Pentagon liaison] stated that the project, that had just been approved by the White House, was terminated because, and I am quoting him, 'There are no UFOs.'"
Daniel Sheehan, Attorney: "I'm a 1967 graduate of Harvard Law School….studied American government and constitutional law…served as general counsel and co-counsel for the New York Times in the Pentagon Papers case and was involved in briefing and arguing the case in front of the US Supreme Court… represented James McCord in the Watergate burglary.. I subsequently attended the Harvard Divinity school in Judeo-Christian social ethics in public policy…did my masters and PHD work there…I became the general counsel for the US Jesuit headquarters in D.C. In 1977, I was contacted by the director of the Science and Technology Division of the Congressional Research Service. She informed me that President Carter had held a meeting with the director of the CIA, George Bush sr, and demanded that he [Bush] turn over to the President the classified information about UFOs and the information that was in the possession of the US intelligence community concerning the existence of ET intelligence. This information was refused to the President of the United States by the director of the CIA. The DCI [Director of Central Intelligence] suspected that the president was preparing to reveal this information to the American public."
The Disclosure Project's director, Steven M. Greer MD, is calling for open Congressional hearings into the UFO matter to explore this and other issues. Dr. Greer states; " There are ongoing illegal covert programs that consider themselves above the law and have deliberately acted outside of constitutionally required control and oversight. These programs deal with UFO and extraterrestrial matters and new energy and propulsion technologies. They have consistently denied Congress and US Presidents access to these programs and constitute a grave threat to US national security."
The overwhelmingly supported theory about why President Carter never made a major disclosure on the UFO phenomena is that he was never able to get his hands on the information to make the release.
John Maynard, formally a military intelligence analyst for the Defense Intelligence Agency, was one of those close to Carter who maintained that the President was cut out of the loop:
As far as UFOs and extraterrestrial matters go, it’s right at the top - and I would say that the President has limited knowledge of it. I know that Carter did not have any knowledge whatsoever. And I worked right there in the organization; President Carter’s organization. They kept it pretty secret."
Dr. Alfred Webre, who claimed to have worked on a Carter White House study on extraterrestrial intelligence while a Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for the Study of Social Policy at the Stanford Research Institute also claimed from what he had experienced, that President Carter didn’t know.
We had a President of the United States who came to office under a pledge to open up the UFO issue, and an open study in the White House, and that was squelched.
A second possible explanation is that Carter, the honest President, was told and convinced that the material was of national security importance and must not be released. This would have been something like the rumored June 14, 1977 briefing discussed above.
Lastly, President Carter suffered from his perceived anti-defense and intelligence stances. Carter had derailed the B-1 bomber which many military contractors and congressmen wanted. In August 1977 Carter vetoed the annual defense budget because it contained an additional $2 billion for an giant nuclear aircraft carrier. Carter cut out funding for production of the neutron bomb.
Carter had publicly referred to the Stealth aircraft program which alerted the military industrial community that he could not even be trusted to keep his mouth shut. At the Stealth plant in California, employees were forced to surreptitiously move parts out of the plant at night to avoid Soviet satellite surveillance which had been alerted to the program.
On the intelligence front Carter had begun his presidency by replacing republican CIA Director George Bush with his trusted friend Stansfield Turner. He cut hundreds of CIA agents in an effort to correct the ills of an agency that had become too powerful and unruly. These cuts were seen by others in the intelligence agency as an attack. Due to the fact that the President relies on the intelligence community as his eyes and ears to the world, many feel that much of Carter undoing at the end of his presidency such as the failed Iranian initiative was caused at least in part by an intelligence agency payback.

sounds good to me,
but who do you intend on submitting this document to? And how can it be guaranteed to be taken seriously?
