I was in a
plane last week when I looked out the window and saw this white light. It
was zigzagging around.I went up to the pilot and said,
;Have you ever seen anything like that? He was shocked and he
said, ;Nope.; And I said to him: ;Let's follow it!
We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white
light.; ;We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to
our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens.;When
I got off the plane I told Nancy all about it. But we didn't file a report
on the object because for a long time they considered you a nut if you saw

at people any more when they say they've seen UFOs," Carter said at a
Southern Governors Conference a few years ago. "I've seen one
myself." "It was the darndest thing I've ever seen. It was big,
it was very bright, it changed colors and it was about the size of the
moon.. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what
it was. One thing's for sure, I'll never make fun of people who say
they've seen unidentified objects in the sky. I think it was a light
beckoning me to run in the California primary. ;If I become
President, I'll make every piece of information that this country has
about UFO sightings available to the public.

the UFO phenomena. I think we owe it to the people to establish
credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible
enlightenment on this subject.

We seek a

people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and
competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge

of the universe at stake, a crash program is imperative. We produced the
A-bomb, under the huge Manhattan Project, in an amazingly short time. The
needs, the urgency today are even greater. The Air Force should end UFO
secrecy, give the facts to scientists, the public, to Congress.
;Once the people realize the truth, they would back, even demand a
crash program... for this is one race we dare not lose..

I have no
feelings, truthfully. My association with MJ-12 has left me dead inside. I
feel myself still cold and calculating. I never let anyone get close to
me. I feel like a human robot. I have killed mercilessly and lied for the
good of the country, or so I believed at the time.
The things I have seen are beyond human
understanding and totally unbelievable. I only have a desire to help
humanity somehow through what is bound to come soon.

truth was known by only a very few persons... Of the original
group that were the first to learn, several committed suicide - the most
prominent of which was Defense Secretary James V. Forrestal who jumped to
his death from a 16th story hospital window. Secretary Forrestal's records
are sealed to this day. President Truman quickly put a lid on the secret
and turned the screws so tight that the general public still thinks that
flying saucers are a joke.

I must say
that if listeners could see for themselves the mass of reports coming in
from the airborne gendarmerie, from the mobile gendarmerie, and from the
gendarmerie charged with the job of conducting investigations, all of
which reports are forwarded by us to the National Center for Space
Studies, then they would see that it is all pretty disturbing.

account the facts that we have gathered from the observers and from the
location of their observations, we concluded that there generally can be
said to be a material phenomenon behind the observations. In 60% of the
cases reported here, the description of this phenomenon is apparently one
of a flying machine whose origin, modes of lifting and/or propulsion are
totally outside our knowledge.

First of all,
I told a magazine this past January that, as an underdeveloped country
with regards to the UFO problem, Japan had to take into account what
should be done about the UFO question, and that we had to spend more time
on these matters. In addition, I said that someone had to solve the UFO
problem with far reaching vision at the same time. Secondly, I believe it
is a reasonable time to take the UFO problem seriously as a reality... I
hope that this Symposium will contribute to peace on Earth from the point
of view of outer space, and take the first step toward the international
cooperation in the field of UFOs.

that UFOs are spaceships or extraterrestrial craft... The nations of the
world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO
phenomenon. There is an international exchange of data. Maybe when this
group of nations acquires more precise and definite information, it will
be possible to release the news to the world.

they are propelled by distorting the gravitational field, converting
gravity into useable energy. There is no doubt in my mind that these
objects are interplanetary craft of some sort. I and my colleagues are
confident that they do not originate in our solar system, but we feel that
they may use Mars of some other body as sort of a way station. They
probably do not originate in our solar system, perhaps not even in our
galaxy." "It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that
they are space ships from another solar system.

assumed, and whose base is at present unknown to us. More I cannot say at
present. We are now engaged in entering into closer contact with those
powers, and in six or nine months time it may be possible to speak with
some precision on the matter.
