Next on my question list is how come no one ever talks about Ronald Regan claiming to have 2 experiences with UFO's?
Not one media person recently will bring up Ronald Reagan experiences with UFO's, Why?
Is it because he is a Republican? Maybe because it would turn off their voting pool?
Firstly, Carter may know the name of a specific race that may be visiting us, therefore he can deny anything about ET's as he has knowledge of their
existence. An English person doesn't go to the US and get called an alien.
Either that or, like you said, he was just saving face.
Reagan did make several comments about ET's.
the President leaned over, clapped Spielberg on the shoulder, and quietly commented, "You know, there aren’t six people in this room who know
how true this really is."
Before the United Nations General Assembly: " In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment," said Reagan, "we often forget how much unites
all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. 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," he went on, "is not an alien
threat already among us ? What could be more alien to universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?"
I hope that has helped answer your question a little. you've got a couple of links there now too, so you can read up on the full articles.
I saw my first UFO when I was 10yrs. old, I've had experiences prior to that and they have continued throught my life. I was lucky enough to capture
a UFO on film that made the front page of a newspaper and Mr. Dodd (man from British MOD) took that same photo on national TV. I have been a part of
several UK UFO groups and contributed towards data and research for UFO magazine, Nexus magazine and several others.
I have continued to see and experience other things and wait patiently for more. What I have seen I cannot doubt.
Good luck to everyone down there at Roswell. Hope you're having a great time...
Reagan Goes to Roswell
It feels good to be here in the land of enchantment and far away from a place of disenchantment on the banks of the Potomac. Jack (Schmitt),
are you sure you want to go back there? [Laughter] Of course, having once been an astronaut, Jack Schmitt is probably the only one who feels at home
there; because Washington is in orbit most of the time about one thing or another. [Laughter]
You know, when he was first elected he Senate, he probably thought that, like E.T., [A character in the movie ``E.T.: The Extra
Terrestrial.''] he had landed on another planet. He was one of the few among those alien big spenders, big taxers, who was working to bring economic
order to our nation.
More important than the alien comments made by President Reagan, was the place that he made them - the Roswell Industrial Air Center - formally known
as the Walker Air Force Base. It was at this base in 1947 where the wreckage and bodies of the Roswell flying saucer were rumored to have been taken
from the crash outside of town.
Furthermore, Reagan made his speech near Hanger 84, which was the rumored hanger that was used to store UFO wreckage and/or bodies in July 1947. Like
his famous speech at the Berlin wall where Reagan asked Gorbachev to "tear down this wall," the speech at the Roswell Hanger where the UFO mystery
began was typical Reagan symbolism.
