Consequences of the War of the Worlds Broadcast
Although it may seem like nothing more than a historical curio, there are those who believe that the Welles-inspired panic had a profound and serious influence on the way the U.S. government
approached the extra-terrestrial phenomenon.
They believe that it caused those in positions of influence to fear the public’s reaction to revelations about extra-terrestrial life. To them, it must have seemed that ordinary people were not psychologically prepared to share their universe with “aliens.” Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, the man who led Project Bluebook, the U.S. government’s official investigation into the UFO phenomenon, later discussed the Welles broadcast in his Report on Flying Saucers. He noted that official memorandums on the UFO topic were strewn with references to the War of the Worlds production, and the panic it caused.

"My fellow Americans, it is at this time a great moment in our history of nations that man has been visited for more then a million years, we have been distressed at this time to say, we cannot obtain our true histories nation without ridicule, this formidable admissary has made us abandon all hope for future generations to come, but in the end I know the outcome will be good, we have been studying with them for over a hundred years, our nations capital is run by them, we are in agreement with them, we do hold however our world over there mercy, and god willingly we have the power in faith for these years will be the years we find out who we are as a whole society, our future may look bleek to some, but that is only because they choose not to see beyond the moment, I ask that you put your petty differences behind you, I know we have not totally been up front with you and we know our cause is good, however by those few who stand in the dark I ask you, is it a dark arena you want to play in or one that has many causes to support, all the travesties of the world will be washed away with this new leadership, and this leadership has been what has kept this world strong through travesties, there is a networking for communication to come to grips with the reality that not only are we not alone but we are in fact a species of select cause to help these foriegn nations, I ask in the time of the hour being the cause, this cause has been a rise since the late 1950's as the support and action we take on this suit must follow with purpose, I do however with a humbled heart agree not everybody knew about these inside security measures, but these measures we feel were in direct contact with something beyond the normal perception of mankind, how do you tell your fellow people of any nation that there is indeed intelligent life, and that life may know all the secrets that has plagued mankind for centuries, be it as it may I feel this judgement is not the call of man but the truest potential for the growth of humanity to change the outcome of our present outcome, we have been told on numerous occasions that we would be denied support if we reguard human life with little or no social effort to economise our rural leaders from becoming dictators, our roles have not been fair in the view of the support we have recieved but our goal is still humble, we are amatures amongst cosmic kings and queens of the universes, though we act steadfast in our agreements with mankind our hearts are labored with this new founded display of cosmic affection, we are glad to make ourselves universaly known, but with this knowing comes a great capacity for life to spread its wings to grow, though we have seen our own social structure labored with the real maturity needed to make it as a whole out in space we are doing everything in our god forbidden land to keep the hopes up of mankind, this news is not new to us, but we know that it is to you , we ask you to truly search your hearts and feel what we have been going through these last few generations to keep mankind a functioning society, it is not my power to force change but to enable you to bring change into your lives, this support we have recieved is just that from a cosmic support group, we lead the human nations through an undercover mankind. We ask in our Nations most humblest hour that you precide with the knowing that we have only failed if we conitinue to follow suit, we have tied all of our assets in these beings, dare we call them human, but we do call them friends, change is the greatest enemy of mankind, and if we can change we will become strong as a nation, but with followers as each civilisation that has ever branched out recieved the security from an invisible force, this force has been the light to come.
