Official statements about UFOs and Aliens

“UFOs are real as the airplanes that fly over your head…I’m so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just had to say something.”

Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defense Minister, September 25, 2005, at the U. of Toronto

“Maximum security exists concerning the subject of UFOs.”

Allen Dulles, CIA Director, 1955

“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 UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”

Admiral Hillenkoetter, first Director of the CIA, February 27, 1960

“I certainly believe in aliens in space, and that they are indeed visiting our planet. They may not look like us, but I have very strong feelings that they have advanced beyond our mental capabilities”.

Senator Barry Goldwater, Arizona, 1965

“I feel that the Air Force has not been giving out all the available information on the Unidentified Flying Objects. You cannot disregard so many unimpeachable sources.”

John W. McCormack, Speaker of the House of Representatives, 1965

“In my official status, I cannot comment on ET contact. However, personally, I can assure you, we are not alone.”

Charles J. Camarda, (Ph.D.), NASA Astronaut

“There are many reasons to believe that UFOs do exist. There is so much evidence from reliable witnesses.”

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, March 28, 1954

“The phenomenon of UFOs does exist, and it must be treated seriously.”

Mikhail Gorbachev, Premiere of the Soviet Union, May 4, 1990

“I can assure you the flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on earth.”

President Harry Truman, April 4, 1950, White House Press Conference

“In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think, how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask is not an alien force already among us?”

President Ronald Reagan to a full session of the United Nations, September 21, 1987

“I am aware that hundreds of military and airline pilots, airport personnel, missile trackers and other competent observers have reported sightings…These UFOs are interplanetary devices systematically observing the earth, either manned or under remote control, or both.”

Col. Joseph Bryan, CIA 1960

“Mankind has long wondered if we’re ‘alone’ in the universe. (But) only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we’re not alone.”

Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, at the National Press Club, 2009
