So, I got to thinking...if the witnesses really did see this guy (a red-headed military guy who they believed to be a captain), chances are (if we
accept the idea of a working group for the subject of UFOs), he was likely attached to this group.
Now, granted, this is all highly speculative, so I'm putting it out there ONLY as a "what if?". So far, I've seen nothing to indicate that such
men were hiding behind false identities, so I looked for anyone named "Armstrong" who may have been the kind of guy to be involved with such a
This is actually a pretty hard bit of criteria to meet. The kind of guy who is on a first name basis with the President and most cabinet members. A
guy who has gone to ivy league schools. The kind of guy who has regular correspondence with highly placed intelligence officials.
Meet Hamilton Fish Armstrong.
Can't tell if he had red hair (can't find a single color photo), but then, dye isn't out of the question. Why? Because this guy was most likely a
spy. His credentials are PERFECT for it...and not just a field one, but someone who plans the missions.
Member of the elite, a founding member of the Council on Foreign Relations (and the editor of their journal for most of his life). This guy predicted
WWII back in '33 in a published paper after interviewing Hitler (he was a journalist).
He received honorary degrees from Brown (1942), Yale (1957), Basel (1960), Princeton (1961), Columbia (1963), and Harvard (1963).
He was decorated by Serbia, Romania, Czechoslovakia, France, and the United Kingdom.
He regularly met with Presidents, and had a lot of correspondence with Allen Dulles (who would later become the founding father of the CIA). His
resume' would make James Bond feel inadequate. So, is this our guy? Does "Captain Armstrong" even exist? Who knows, but it is a pretty tidy
coincidence. He would certainly be the kind of guy involved.
So, any connection to UFOs?
By secret Executive Memorandum NSC 5511 in 1954, President Eisenhower had commissioned the study group to 'EXAMINE ALL THE FACTS, EVIDENCE,
LIES, AND DECEPTION AND DISCOVER THE TRUTH OF THE ALIEN QUESTION.' NSC 5412/2 was only a cover that had become necessary when the press began
inquiring as to the purpose of regular meetings of such important men. The first meetings began in 1954 and were called the Quantico meetings because
they met at the Quantico Marine Base. The study group was made up solely of 35 members of the Council on Foreign Relations' secret study group. Dr.
Edward Teller was invited to participate. Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski was the study director for the first 18 months. Dr. Henry Kissinger was chosen as
the group's study director for the second 18 months beginning in November 1955. Nelson Rockefeller was a frequent visitor during the study.
THE STUDY GROUP MEMBERS - Gordon Dean, Chairman; Dr. Henry Kissinger, Study Director; Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, Study Director; Dr. Edward Teller; Maj.
Gen. Richard C. Lindsay; Hanson W. Baldwin; Lloyd V. Berkner; Frank C. Nash; Paul H. Nitze; Charles P. Noyes; Frank Pace Jr.; James A. Perkins; Don K.
Price; David Rockefeller; Oscar M. Ruebhausen; Lt. Gen. James M. Gavin; Caryl P. Haskins; James T. Hill, Jr.; Joseph E. Johnson; Mervin J. Kelly;
Frank Altschul; Hamilton Fish Armstrong; Maj. Gen. James McCormack, Jr.; Robert R. Bowie; McGeorge Bundy; William A. M. Burden; John C.
Campbell; Thomas K. Finletter; George S. Franklin, Jr.; I.I. Rabi; Roswell L. Gilpatric; N.E. Halaby; Gen. Walter Bedell Smith; Henry DeWolf Smyth;
Shields Warren; Carroll L. Wilson; Arnold Wolfer
Again, all speculation, but intriguing enough, at least. This guy founded a group that shapes world policy. Having his name pop up is certainly at
least a little eye-opening.
