Several astronauts have come forward over the years to talk about their experiences with UFOs.

Quote

Astronaut Gordon Cooper, who flew in to space as part of NASA\'s Project Mercury in 1963, is well known for his experiences with UFOs. In 1951 he reported witnessing a number of strange objects flying in formation over Germany.

Cooper saw UFOs, big deal, people see them every day.

As for the one Neil and Buzz saw on their way to the moon.... That was nothing but pure tabloid nonsense.

I just talked to Buzz Aldrin on the phone, and he notes that the quotations were taken out of context and did not convey the intended meaning.  After the Apollo 11 crew verified that the objects they were seeing was not the SIVB upper stage,  which was about 6000 miles away at that time, they concluded that they were probably seeing one of the panels from the separation of the spacecraft from the upper stage.  These panels were not tracked from Earth and were likely much closer to the Apollo spacecraft.  They chose no to discuss this on the open communications channel since they were concerned that their comments might be misinterpreted (as they are being now).  Apparently all of this discussion about the panels was cut from the broadcast interview, thus giving the impression that they had seen a UFO. / David Morrison

Wow, we had no idea. Now we know, we'll just take everything you say for granted.

Your story makes it look like as if the media had no other intention just to make the crowds believe in UFOs. So where were they when the Citizen Hearing took place? http://www.nytimes.c...liens.html?_r=0 You call this it? Is this really the level of professionalism that the NYT is capable of? Or was the intention something else here? Is it possible what Dr Steven Greer says about the free press?
Here is what I found with my friend the Google search engine. If you watch from 9:51
http://www.youtube.c...tGG1Ekkf0#t=591
He also talks about official CIA documents, like the one that asks Disney to produce material that would marginalize the UFO subject, or the one about their folks in every major media outlet. If not all, at least some of the things he says seem well-established and convincing, and should be further investigated as it is provocative at the least.

Steven Greer (and the Disclosure Project) is a joke.

Never mind about what anyone said or didn't say.

Let someone try and explain this if they can:



Nuff said.

Steven Greer (and the Disclosure Project) is simply a medium through whom information arrives. It could be anyone else, and it could be anywhere else and called anything else. What matters is the content. I'm sorry you don't see that. You focus on the person rather than the CIA documents.

Not Greer's fault; he did amazing things pulling key witnesses together.  The problem is Government stonewalling.  

What did you expect from him?  That he and a team of heavily armed mercenaries would storm the Area 51 facility?  What?

All Im saying is that he promised us evidence but ended up with the usual opinions about UFOs and other tall tales.... and most of us know that those arent worth the paper its written on... not when it comes to this kind of claims.


Cant blame the evil Government for that, no matter how much you would like to.

Too many know-it-all's on this website. Just like me, they in no way whatsoever have the answers to everything. Even if they act otherwise. (=
