I heard Grant Cameron on a recent interview and he described every president and the UFO topic. This is actually the best and most recognized researcher when it comes to presidents and UFOs. He also talked about the Eisenhower meeting and the alleged video that is coming out.

You can go to this page and listen to Grant's show. Just scroll down and download the show:

"Mission control, we have a UFO pacing our position, request instructions."

How about this. The "quote" does not even remotely resemble what was actually said, ( Well, they got two of the words right. A perfect example of a tale growing in the telling.

It is also taken out of context. A double whammy.

During this mission, Mission Specialist Catherine G. Coleman was overheard reporting to Houston that "...We have an unidentified flying object." This is frequently mistaken to be an actual "UFO" sighting by an astronaut. However, as video footage from the mission shows, the astronaut was not near any window at the time of communication, and her "report" was said in jest and relating to a crewmember floating by.

The only one "I" know for sure is true is Jimmy Carter's. We all have heard him tell his story on camera.

I really liked the CIA quote that explained why world governments want this stuff secret.....look at the survivalist threads on just this site.... and they are preparing for civil war because of some doom and gloom about the economy or the threat de jure.

The average human can't handle the truth and so the rest of us get treated like mental midgits. People would probably say, "screw it, I'm not paying my mortgage because ET is going to wipe me out, pick me up, or it is the 2nd coming or they are going to enslave me...or....panic and anarchy is the likely result.....I just wish I didn't have to be left out of the loop and I'm sure some, if not most of you, hate that we are.

"We lost between 16-18 ICBMs (nuclear tipped Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles) at the same time UFOs were in the area. (A high ranking Air Force officer) said, Stop the investigation; do no more on this and do not write a final report."


I kinda like this one:

16 or 18 Nukes I dunno , obviously he doesn't know or remember.
How could you NOT know the number, it's not like they were twinkies,
they were Nukes. And how could you write a report if you didn't how many
were there yesterday and how many are there now.
Never mind, we'll just email the pentagon telling them we need 16 or 18 nukes
because of "best before" date expired.

Honest, they were there yesterday.

Anyone else notice that the majority of these quotes are from the 40's 50's and 60's and then there is suddenly hardly any note worthy or known quotes since then.

If I was into conspiracy's I might just shape one up just from observing this alone.

UFO's are seen on occasion but mostly ignored up unitl the early 1900's when we start flying around ourselves.

Then say Roswell happens, all of the sudden...

Hollywood goes crazy putting out ufo/alien movies.
People start paying attention to the skies more
Abduction/witness cases start piling up
"Secret" bases pop up
Technology makes sudden leaps
Its just the beginning, so "officials" haven't quite started "covering" or "silencing" so quotes are somewhat free and abundant.
Then Project Blue Book gets started
Quickly followed by tight lips and retractions and disinfo
We "land" on the moon
We start sending regularly scheduled orbital flights
UFO believers begin to get ridiculed
Technology further advances
UFO believers are "loony tunes"
Government denies anything and everything
Sightings and witness accounts increase exponentially
No more "military" quotes, only those who are ex: and abandoned by current military....... denial

Hollywood was handed the SiFi gravy train complements of
the Illuminati cover up of UFO technology.

Basically you can't have any, its theirs alone .

So all these people making money off alien stories are
helping to cover the high technology.

ED: A few people hold this theory of Roswell shenanigans.
A Greer knew there was something hidden even if talking
to Bill Lyne used none of Tesla conspiracy, he probably
got a boost that something was hidden.
Unfortunately asking for Alien technology does not make
them lie when they say no, you have to ask for Tesla
technology to make them lie that nothing is hidden.

More interesting ones:

"That there is a serious possibility that we are being visited - and have been visited for many years - by people from outer space, from other civilizations".
"This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation, and not the subject of rubbishing by tabloid newspapers."

Lord Hill-Norton -Five-star Admiral and the former head of the British Ministry of Defense (1973) - Chairman - Military Committee of NATO.


Admiral Delmar Fahrney


Reliable reports indicate there are objects coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds and controlled by thinking intelligences.

A public statement, 1957.

No agency in this country or Russia is able to duplicate at this time the speeds and accelerations which radars and observers indicate these flying objects are able to achieve.

Printed in New York Times.
Admiral Fahrney was former head of the Navy’s guided-missile program.

Brig. General George Shulgen


It is the considered opinion of some elements that the object may in fact represent an interplanetary craft of some kind.

From a Draft Intelligence Collections Memorandum by Brig. Geneneral George Shulgen, Oct. 28, 1947


Captain Eddie Rickenbacker


Flying saucers are real. Too many good men have seen them, that don’t have hallucinations.

Captain Rickenbacker was known as, American Ace of Aces, medal of honor-winning commander of the 94th Aero Pursuit Squadron in WWI, with 26 kills.


Captain Edward J. Ruppelt


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.

When four college professors, a geologist, a chemist, a physicist, and a petroleum engineer report seeing the same UFOs on fourteen different occasions, the event can be classified as, at least, unusual. Add the fact that hundreds of other people saw these UFOs and that they were photographed, and the story gets even better. Add a few more facts, that these UFOs were picked up on radar and that a few people got a close look at one of them, and the story begins to convince even the most ardent skeptic.

Ruppelt, Chief of Project Blue Book, from his book, The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects, 1956.


Colonel Carl Sanderson


From their maneuvers and their terrific speed I am certain their flight performance was greater than any aircraft known today.

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.

Colonel Joseph J. Bryan III


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.

Bryan was founder of the CIA’s psychological warfare staff, special assistant to the secretary of the Air Force, advisor to NATO, and board member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomenon (NICAP).

Colonel Robert Willingham


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 they claimed that it crashed somewhere off between Texas and the Mexico border.

Willingham, USAF, from an affidavit filed in the 1970s. Willingham and his navigator were test flying an F-94 on Sept.6, 1950 out of San Angelo, Texas when they were alerted by radar control operators of a UFO in their area.

General Curtis LeMay


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.

Statement from 1965 autobiography Mission With LeMay, with MacKinlay Kantor, New York: Doubleday, 1965.

Without a verifiable source no one can know what the true context of any statement is.

Are you just attempting to blanket debunk all the quotes or do you accept that some can be verified ?

"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.

There are so many UFOs that they're such a nuisance, they have to create special filters to screen them out so they can carry on with their more routines tasks!!!!. Nobody bothers to pay attention, they're just so common! NASA physicist, in the late 60s.

My what a jewel!
