The UFO Phenomenon

Secret memo reveals JFK interest in UFOs

President John F Kennedy requested information on UFOs just ten days before he was assassinated.
Conspiracy theories have been flying since the revelation which some see as evidence that Kennedy was killed to stop him learning the truth about UFOs. "One of his concerns was that a lot of these UFOs were being seen over the Soviet Union and he was very concerned that the Soviets might misinterpret these UFOs as U.S. aggression, believing that it was some of our technology," says author William Lester who received a copy of the documents from the CIA.
An uncovered letter written by John F Kennedy to the head of the CIA shows that the president demanded to be shown highly confidential documents about UFOs 10 days before his assassination.

Why should we have to ask William Lester anything? I mean you are the one making the claims, so why can't you ask him and get the evidence? Plus I think it's up to reporters to ask Lester such questions. I don't know him from Adam. Of course, maybe they've already done all that. Certainly there were a lot of stories about it on the Internet. He said he filed a FOIA request with the CIA and got it, and I see no reason to doubt that. This document was well known for many years.

I wouldn't be surprised. It just seems that you're here 24/7. I mean, they must sleep sometime down there in Australia or wherever you are. Yeah, I'm here 24/7. Maybe I'm logging in from a super secret moon base. Or even better, I'm logging in from BIO Station Alpha on Mars. Yeah, that's where I probably am. And I got there through a teleportation device that we've been hiding from the rest of the world for several decades. We've been stationed there with a mission to deface the alien monuments of Cydonia before better images could be captured. We succeeded! (All of the above is, of course, co... [More]

Now you know good and well we beam you up daily to UM through the Zeta Reticuli mars base! Don't tell everyone mate. I've grown quite fond of the Martian soil face masks. They bring out a very special glow in my skin! And I would hate to lose my tenure over something so trivial as exposing the truth.

By the way, NSAM 271 was not the last one issued by JFK. On November 13, 1963, he issued NSAM 272, which concerned safety rules for nuclear weapons systems. http://www.jfklibrary.org/Asset-Viewer/GRGH_0suEE-s1kJhjgjEbA.aspx That was the last one, and the next, NSAM 273 of November 26, 1963, was the first issued by the LBJ administration. This reaffirmed that the U.S. was going to stay the course in South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia: http://www.lbjlib.utexas.edu/johnson/archives.hom/nsams/nsam273.asp William Colby was a true believer in the Vietnam War, the head of Operation Phoenix, and he thou...

Now you know good and well we beam you up daily to UM through the Zeta Reticuli mars base! That explains it. I've heard that they are not exactly on a 24-hour day there. Of course with two suns it must be hard to tell the right time anyway.

CIA, Studies in Intelligence, No. 1, 1997, contains a number of articles including a memorial to William Colby, and a review of CIA efforts to repress reporting on UFOs. One essay details the intelligence community's (IC) lack of analysis. "...it is time to stop pretending that the current structure can work....we will need to refocus on the analytic process and establish a structure that actually facilitates analysis rather than impedes it...." (Comment: This detailed discussion of failed analysis, does not address the problem of operational analysis. If the IC is to counter-terrorism, counte... [More]

In April 1977, the White House had already determined, through questions put to the CIA, a great deal of information about UFOs was being withheld. Using the office of the Press secretary Jody Powell, the White House released a bomb-shell about possibly revealing some of the secrets. Through a background briefing with U.S. News & World Report, the White House leaked the following information: "Before the year is out, the Government - perhaps the President - is expected to make what are described as ‘unsettling disclosures’ about UFOs – unidentified flying objects. Such revelations, based o... [More]

Eisenhower, the Military-Industrial Complex, and UFOs "The whole process of dealing with the UFO phenomenon could not be handled anymore by one agency. And so in order to keep it alive, and I guess as cheaply as possible, it was given to various and sundry parts of the government to work on. And I guess they thought that they could also keep the intelligence factor as secret as possible by giving agencies a little bit here and a little bit there, as that often times is done in matters like this. "But what happened was, Eisenhower got sold out. Without him knowing it, he lost control of what wa... [More]
