ABC News Reports 'UFO phenomenon is real' says Apollo Astronaut Edgar Mitchell
Other Major Defense and Intelligence Figures Concur
Toronto, Ontario, Canada August 8, 2009 – A number of respected international figures have now indicated that not only is the phenomenon of UFOs real but government has covered up its reality. Foremost and most recently, Dr. Edgar Mitchell has come forward to unequivocally affirm the reality of an official embargo on the truth of an ET presence and the government’s continued silence.
In an ABC News article Emily Friedman writes that former Apollo astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell not only believes that the planet has been visited by extraterrestrial life forms but that the American government has known about it for decades. Friedman writes, “NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, a member of the Apollo 14 mission that landed on the moon in 1971, elaborated on his own fluid thoughts on the universe, arguing that alien visits to Earth have been covered up by governments for more than 60 years.”
Friedman goes on to affirm that earlier, during an interview on Britain’s Kerrang Radio, Dr. Mitchell said that he has been informed the UFO phenomenon is authentic.
Mitchell’s Kerrang Radio statement: "I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real," Dr. Mitchell also indicates, "It has been covered up by governments for quite some time now."
This is not the first time a noted North American figure has made such public statements. In September of 2005 former Canadian Minister of Defense and Deputy Prime Minster of Canada the Hon. Paul Hellyer, while addressing an audience at the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall, said, “UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head.”
In a 1960’s February 27 New York Times (UPI) article, former Director of the CIA Roscoe Hillenkoetter (Ret) stated, “It is time for the truth to be brought out in open Congressional hearings… behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFO’s. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” Hillenkoetter further charged, “…that to hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel.”
This quality and brand of personal authentication, under similar conditions in a court of law, would be unequivocally categorized as heavily weighted ‘expert witness testimony’. Unfortunately, in the court of journalistic assimilation, members of the Fourth Estate are yet to take such authentication seriously. This will soon change in the face of expert corroboration by respected figures.
Other statements by high profile figures on the UFO matter:
Astronaut Gordon Cooper:
"For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public.” Taped interview by J. L. Ferrando
Lord Hill-Norton, Admiral of the Fleet, Great Britain (Five Star)
“I am convinced that there is an official cover-up of the investigations which governments have made into UFOs, certainly in the United States... The evidence that there are objects which have been seen in our atmosphere, and even on terra firma, that cannot be accounted for either as man-made objects or as any physical force or effect known to our scientists seems to me to be overwhelming.” Hill-Norton, 1988, Foreword to “Above Top Secret”, Timothy Good, William-Morrow, New York, 1988.
President Jimmy Carter
“If I become President, I’ll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public, and the scientists. I am convinced that UFOs exist because I’ve seen one...” Carter, Jimmy: The National Enquirer, June 8, 1976; confirmed by White House media liaison Jim Purks, in a letter dated April 20, 1979.
[Despite the sustained testimony of high level and respected international figures, mainstream media continues to play down the geo-political import and authentic nature of this phenomenon. The impact upon social institutions and the press could be incalculable when substantive elements of the fourth estate make the ultimate decision to fully engage the UFO/ET matter as attested to by pre-eminent and trusted spokespersons like Dr. Mitchell and Paul Hellyer.]
