That is Admiral WIlson. Ed went and saw the Admiral with non other than Stehen Greer, which resulted in Ed completely wiping his involvement with that particular situation - LINK Edgar Mitchell Most Unhappy With Stephen Greer Using His Name as a Disclosure Witness.
Not only that, Admiral Wilson categorically refuses to support Greer and Mitchell in this instance.

Here is Ed clearing things up even more. The Kerrang Radio Interview, where he clears up the misconceptions.
EM: I don’t know what really got things stirred up, perhaps it was the Larry King show. I don’t know.
LB: Could be. But basically people are freaking out that you were aware of several UFO visits.
EM: That’s not quite right. You use that in the plural. I was talking about the Roswell incident, the Roswell visitation primarily, but there have been many others that have been reported that I have no personal awareness of but that was the one that I was really talking about.
LB: So the interview has been a little misquoted. But you actually have information about the Roswell incident?
EM: Yes and my information comes from what I call “the old timers,” because I grew up in the Roswell area and when I went to the moon, some of the old timers from that period, some locals, and others military and intelligence people, who were under rather severe oaths to not reveal any of this and kind of wanted to get their conscience clear and off their chests before they passed on, selected me and said, independently – this wasn’t a group effort – independently that maybe I might be a safe person to tell their story to. And all of them confirmed, and what I’m saying is they confirmed the Roswell incident was a real incident and they in some way had some part in it that they wanted to talk about.
Edgar thinks the Roswell Incident is real, and I assure you that he has come to this conclusions via sources such as Bob Lazar (whom he openly advocates) Glenn Dennis, Stephen Greer, whom he has not ousted, and some cattle ranchers from Roswell. He personally knows nothing at all, and simply believes people who have approached him.
There is quite a thread on Edgar here. Quillius and I went into quite some depth regarding his allegations. In the end, we find Edgar knows exactly what he says he does. And that is hearsay and rumour form dubious sources. Not much to hang one's hat on I am afraid.
This is what I was saying. Roll your sleeves up, and one finds that these big calls are bunkum. The problem lies with incompetent reporters, not Dr. Mitchell.
Still, to this day I wonder what on earth inspired him to attempt telepathy experiments whilst on his way to the moon. Seems rather woo woo for a man with a good head on his shoulders.
(Edgar Mitchell) I, nor any crew I was on (I was on three Apollo crews), received any briefing before or after flights on UFO events, saw anything in space suggesting UFOs or structures on the moon, etc. We did it just like we said in official reports. My only claim to knowledge of these events is from the individuals, mostly of yesteryear, who were in government, intelligence, or military; were there, saw what they saw, and now believe it should be made public. But I claim no first hand knowledge, nor have any. Pass it on to the rest of the net, if you will.
