27 year Air Force veteran Dick French was ordered to investigate and debunk UFO sightings.

He appears to be a credible whistleblower. And one thing of interest is that he holds the Air Force record for combat missions.

Here is the video provided by Open Minds T.V.

This is a big development in the UFO community.

Is there any evidence that this guy was ever even in the AF? I mean, come on, "Dick French" really? I think someone is pulling your leg (well, the whole field is, but that is another story).

Remember: that one of the major candidates for America right now is named Mitt Romney, the current president is Barack Obama - and the one before's last name was Bush.

Just saying - Seems like a government thing, guy probably was in the Air Force.

Is this the same Air Force guy that tried to drink the Jell-O?


“Did you ever hear of anyone—especially an air force officer—trying to drink Jell-O?” Mrs. Ralph Butler of Owatonna, Minnesota, asked. “Well, that’s what he did. He acted like he had never seen any before. He picked up the bowl and tried to drink it. I had to show him how to eat it with a spoon.“

Mrs. Butler was describing the man who had visited her in May 1967, following a flurry of UFO sightings in Owatonna. He said he was Major Richard French of the U.S. Air Force although he was dressed in civilian clothes and was driving a white Mustang. His neat gray suit and everything else he was wearing appeared to be brand-new.

Even the soles of his shoes were unscuffed, unwalked upon. He was about five feet nine inches tall, with an olive complexion and a pointed face. His hair was dark and very long—too long for an air force officer, Mrs. Butler thought. Unlike Jack Brown, Major French was a fluent conversationalist and seemed perfectly normal until he complained about his stomach bothering him. When Mrs. Butler offered him the Jell-O she suspected for the first time that something was out of kilter.

Richard French was an imposter. One of the many wandering around the United States in 1967. For years these characters had caused acute paranoia among the flying saucer enthusiasts, convincing them that the air force was investigating them, silencing witnesses and indulging in all kinds of unsavory activities—including murder. When I first began collecting such reports I was naturally suspicious of the people making such reports. It all seemed like a massive put-on. But gradually it became apparent that the same minute details were turning up in widely separated cases, and none of these details had been published anywhere ... not even in the little newsletters of the UFO cultists.

Interesting story.

I've watched this video twice, and though he seems genuine - the way he brought up "My duty was to investigate any UFO sighting I could get my hands on, now my real job was to debunk it, do anything I could... Well you know." had instantly irked me.

"My job was to debunk it, do anything I could. I collected any photographic evidence, interrogating..."
Start at 3:00 minutes.

Perhaps his job is not finished. It would fit in to the "false alien agenda" --- a highly credited air force major, ex-shill for the government, comes out to admit he has also seen UFOs.

A very interesting perspective .
He could still be very much active when viewed from that point of view .

He comes off as an honest person. But his history irks me. Has he grown a conscience, or is it something more?

The guy did get a medal of honor.
Not just anyone gets that.

Listening to his take on the UFO encounter causing the aircraft to explode, is pretty strange also.

We have heard of the foo fighter UFOs of WW2 - but I imagined them as more "passive observers", less hostile.

His testimony is that a UFO directly caused the death of a human being.

Can someone correct me on this?

Foo fighter, both Axis and Allies pilots allegedly claim to have witnessed them:

In retrospect , one kinda gets the impression the he is trying to paint the "aliens" in a rather bad light .
Could be part of the build up to the false flag event that everybody seems to be discussing as of late .

Yeah... "Dick French" was a 25+ year Air Force veteran. The funny sounding guy mentions that several times.

Stay skeptical.

Well I hope his book is a success. It's hard for me to believe someone that stays quiet then decides to sell a story. If I were privy to such information (and I probably wouldn't share it EVER if I were) I certainly wouldn't attempt to make money from it. Loses all credibility when you sell it.

I posted the paragraphs below in another thread and have mentioned this guy numerous times, someone who does fit the bill and is definitely real and spent many years as USAF debunker-in-chief before claiming to be the main witness in a multiwitness sighting before ever being assigned to work at Blue Book once somebody finally had the gall to ask him face to face if he had ever personally seen a UFO--something every reporter should ask if able to question such a government spokesman.

Whistle-blowing or fraud? He doesn't seem to be so well known in ufology these days, but it wasn't until 1978 that someone fired the UFO gotcha question point-blank on national TV at Colonel William T. Coleman, former Public Information Officer for Project Blue Book and the USAF’s Chief Public Relations Officer in the early 1970s: "Have you ever seen a UFO yourself?" HIs answer was that as a bomber pilot in 1955 he and this crew of five saw a 60-foot grayish disc, followed it, closed to within 1/8 mile, and filed reports with Blue Book, which he said he couldn’t find when he later went to work for Blue Book and was able to check.

That admission came on the Merv Griffin Show, where he was a guest because he had been hired as a Producer on Project UFO, Jack Webb's TV series about Project Blue Book.

www.nicap.org...

He also appeared together with Colonel Robert J. Friend (head of Blue Book 1958-1963) on KTLA for a few minutes on a special in which Mike Farrrel gave them a chance to speak about the UFO situation.

www.youtube.com...

That's interesting, to me at least, because if he was telling the truth, it means that the top U.S. government spokesman on this issue was knowingly lying to the public for years. And the very fact that he is not so well known in the field would tend to point away from a verdict of fraud.

Ultimately, this UFO stuff is like a religion, where you just have to have faith that you really know what is going on. Who really knows, other than the people possibly working in the projects?

All the videos in the world don't mean a thing. Maybe the guys have been taught how to act? Rehearsed? Is it so far fetched? Maybe it was part of the job description for some people, if they wanted to remain alive, to spread lies. Who knows?

We really don't know much. I exclude the people who have seen enormous undeniable things. Sometimes people swear by things that are much less than they are, though. Witnesses are often unreliable. In the end, I will only believe something that is without a doubt clear as day, something phenomenal. Even then, who am I to say what or who is operating the "thing" in the sky?

I think Hollywood has done a brilliant job of convincing people of things that they would not otherwise believe in. They are blurring the line of what is fantasy and what isn't, and most people do not even believe that they can be influenced by movies and such without realizing it. Sad.

This false flag disclosure alien thing has been talked about for years.

And it's always just about to happen.

Holding breath.... not.

My mom's brother has this exact name (not the same guy). What is so hard to believe about this? His real name is Richard, but we always called him Dick.

Here's are links to articles on the first known airline case with flight and cabin crew plus passengers all reporting a close encounter plus usual flight characteristics. Either they were all telling the truth or they weren't, for whatever reason (hoax, misintepretation, leaky bottle of amyl nitrate on the plane--all silly, but . . . ). And, of course, NARCAP has a whole database with over 3,000 airline cases accumulagte over the years. But this one is from the early days, before the U.S. government could have been building anything really exotic and several years before the USAF contracted Avro to attempt to build a flying disc. And the stewardess in this case said she saw the phenomenon from both the darkened cockpit and the light cabin.
