It seems that we have more crashed flying saucers than have been reported in the past. Here are a few of them. This information came to me and it was given at a convention of people who report on crashed UFOs. ..................................................................... ..................................................................... Crashed Retrieval Conference Franklin D. Ro-sevelt The only story that I will deal with regarding FDR is a story that is being worked on by CUFOS and the Ohio MUFON people. It involves the longest servicing State Secretary in US history Cordell H-ll. Hu-l won Peace Prize for the work he did towards the creation of the United Nations. He is one of three Nobel Peace Prize winners who have been involved in UFOs. The other two are Jimmy Ca-ter, and former Canadian Prime Minister Lester Pea-son. H-ll's story is this. The daughter of his cousin, Reverend Turner Hamilton Holt, came forward a few years back to tell a story of an incident that had occurred in Washington DC in 1939. According to what the Reverend told the family his cousin Cordell Hu-l had taken him to the sub-basement of the Capitol building during a visit to Washington. There he viewed Four large glass jars holding 4 creatures and a wrecked round craft of some kind nearby. No other supporting evidence is yet available, but MUFON Ohio is still working on it. Harry S. Tr-man Harry Tru-an was, as everyone knows was the president who held the W-ite House at the time of the Roswell crash. Despite the importance of the crash in UFO lore there is very little evidence to be found in Whi-e House records to show that Tru-an had any documented involvement in the handling of the crash. A display at the Roswell Museum has a display showing a phone call and a meeting with General Hoyt Van-enberg, who is generally acknowledged to be a key player in the Roswell event. The call and meeting were supposed to have occurred on July 9th, the day after the Roswell press release on the crash. According to W-ite House records, however, neither occurred. Va-denburg and other possible key Roswell players did meet on July 10th, but it was only for 10 minutes and then only for the signing of an Air Force Day proclamation. The following were present: Honorable W. Stuart Sym-ngton, Assistant Secretary of War Lt. General Hoyt S. Vandenb-rg, Acting Deputy Commander, Army Air Forces Major General Lauris Nor-tad, and General James H. Do-little. The Whit- House records, however, might not be all that inclusive. Edwin Ea-sley, for example, is shown in Whi-e House records to have never had contact with Tru-an. In direct contradiction to this is a statement by E-sley's daughter who stated her father had promised not to talk after making a promise to the president. General Roger Ra-ey is another example of possibly incomplete W-ite House records. Wh-te House records show that he never had contact with the president, and yet George Filer of "Filer's Files", stated that Mrs. Ram-y had told him during an interview that she and her husband had met Tr-man and his wife on more than one occasion, and were in fact good friends. The oral history testimony of Robert La-dry, the Air Advisor to President Tr-man, may also help shed light on why there is no crashed saucer material, or recorded contacts with Roswell participants, in Wh-te House files. Lan-ry told Tr-man oral historians that he briefed Tru-an on UFO orally [every three months during his tenure (February 1948 - January 1953). He described himself as a go-between to the C-A. As a side light to this, Lan-ry undoubtedly told Tr-man of the number of radar UFO sightings (described in a second oral history interview) he had while stationed with the 8th Army Air Force in Hawaii during World War 2. Dwight D. Eisen-ower As I said previously, the president only knows what is told to him by those around him. He can be cut off from knowledge such as Harry Tr-man was while vice-president under FDR. During his whole time as vice-president he only met with the president twice, and was therefore out of the loop on almost everything that was going on. When T-uman became president he decided that the next president would not end up as president knowing nothing as he had. He set up a series of briefing to be given to the president-elect that would have him ready to govern when sworn in. This is a practice that continues up to the present. Tru-an helped brief Ei-enhower on many subjects he would need to govern. One of those briefings is the rumored UFO briefing given to Ike in November 1952. This briefing has become famous because of the M--12 document mailed to Jamie Sh-ndera in 1984. As my time is limited and others are talking about this document I will not deal with it. I will say, however, that I have spent a lot of time in the past couple months looking at the concept of "if president's gets UFO briefing and what they are told." I will discuss later other examples which show the importance of such briefings. Now to perhaps the most well known of the presidential UFO stories. This story is the visit of Eis-nhower to Palm Springs in February 13, 1954. It was during that visit that the press discovered Ike had disappeared. Panic broke out and one reporter almost got a story on the wire stating that Ike had died of a heart attack. Ike's press secretary James Ha-erty gained control of the situation saying Ike was at the dentist after having broken a cap eating chicken. Ike reappeared the next morning at church and all was forgotten. All of the 1950s stories state that Ike had gone to nearby Edwards Air Force Base, and there met with aliens who landed at the base. Ike met with the aliens, heard their message, and thereby decided the world was not ready for this type of information. The story further states it was at this point Ike ordered the real cover-up to start. In the late 70s and early 80s, when dead aliens became the rage, the story of Ike's visit to Edwards turned into a visit to see dead alien bodies. Although no 1950 story mentions dead aliens there is actually some evidence to indicate that he may in fact have gone to Edwards to see alien bodies. (JW I believe that you will find that Ike met some extraterrestrial aliens who had landed in some space ships.) Bullet published a headline story which stated "A.F. Men Examine UFO: Object Found Near California Oregon Border." Prominent radio commentator Frank Edwards, who broke the story, stated that the object had been moved to a "West Coast US airfield." An interesting sidelight to this story is the fact that one of the air force men reported to be going to the airfield to investigate the object was none other than J. Allen Hy-ek. Finally, related to Ei-enhower, is the testimony of Brigadier General Steven Lo-ekin who stated that he had been shown small UFO wreckage pieces, and that Ike was fully aware of the facts. Lo-ekin had served with the Whi-e House Army Signal Corps. In a conversation with me Lovek-n stated that Ei-enhower knew what was going on and that Love-in himself had witnessed Ei-enhower talking about UFOs while at Camp David. Lyndon B. John-on During a recent visit to the Lyndon Jo-nson library in Austin Texas, I spent a week looking at the UFO connection to the 1965 power blackout in the northeast, and the role of the Jo-nson W-ite Hcuse in the crash of an object in Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. Based on information supplied by Kecksburg expert Stan Go-don and researcher Leslie K-an I was looking for information that would support stories, which showed the involvement of such groups as N-SA (who have now agreed to turn over 3 dozen pages of documents they have always claimed they don't have) and the Office of Emergency Planning at the crash site. My library research involved checking the president's movements and contacts between him and his top advisors with the information Stan Gor-on had collected related to the crash. At the time of Keck-burg crash President Johns-n was at his Wh-te House ranch in Austin, Texas. A careful review of the evidence showed some interesting parallels to what Go-don had discovered about groups reported at the crash scene. These included: James We-b, the head of NA-A arrived at the ranch at 9:50 the morning after the crash. All members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff arrived the morning after the crash. The Governor of Pennsylvania arrived at the ranch in afternoon. On Sunday night, three days after the crash Jo-nson arrived back at the Wh-te House. The next afternoon, John-on met off the record with Buford El-ington. Ellin-ton was the head of the Office of Emergency Planning, which is inside the Executive Office of the President. This was one of the groups that appeared to have been involved in the Kec-sburg crash. One of the key people under Lionel El-ington was USAF Col. J. Leo Bou-assa. He headed up the "Special Facilities Division" within the Office of Emergency Planning. He is the person mentioned in the Blue Book file dealing with the Ke-ksburg crash. While at the Jo-nson library I was looking for files on Bou-assa and on the "Special facilities Division" to see how it fit into the Keck-burg crash. What I learned about Boura-sa while at the library is that he had also been heavily involved in the 1965 blackout of New York City. In fact, he wrote a report to Ell-ngton detailing his findings. Boura-sa's findings hinted at the possible role of UFOs in the blackout. From the November 23, 1965 Bou-assa report we read, "The lack of specific information at the time, plus the state of confusion that existed in the Northeast U.S., the fact that sabotage, enemy action, and unknown phenomena were all considered possibilities..." It was not until I got home that I figured out who J. Leo Bour-ssa was, and why this might be significant to his involvement in the Kecksb-rg crash. It turns out that Bo-rassa was the head of Mount Weather, the nuclear attack proof bunker outside Washington D.C., where the president and top go-ernment leaders are taken in case of a nuclear attack. In fact, on September 11 when the Trade Towers were hit, the top 15 gover-ment leaders were rounded up by the se-ret service and taken there, while Che-ey directed things in the bunker under the Whi-e House.

List Of Crashed UFOs. Part 2. Dec. 7, 2003.This talks about Jackie Gl-ason being shown some aliens from outer space. ..................................................................... ..................................................................... Boura-sa, who at Mount Weather had instant access to the Joint Chiefs of St-ff Command center, all the mi-itary services, fire departments, NO-AD, and other key agencies, was involved in the Kecksb-rg recovery and may actually have been directing the proper units to the site behind the scenes. Aerial photographs of Mount Weather show the presidential heliport where the president is dropped off. The tower that directs in the president's flight is known as "bluegrass tower." In the Ke-ksburg Blue Book file right after J. Leo Bo-rassa's name you will find (Code blue grass). Another connection to the code "bluegrass" is a paranormal C-A project started in 1955, which I haven't confirmed yet another person who adds evidence for this role of Mount Weather in UFOs was Brigadier-General Steven L-vekin who testified for the Briefings held by CSETI for Congressmen and others in April 1997. He stated, "I was fortunate enough to travel around Washington DC area, and I was fortunate enough to speak to one individual who was a gov-rnment employee. He was not mi-itary. I only knew him as Frank, and I first met him at Mount Weather Virginia, Winchester, which is the place many of you might know where the president in case of attack. He told me at that time, the first time that I saw him, because he knew I was interested in this subject matter, that this place also had facilities to track these UFOs." Finally, I should mention a final note on the Special Facilities Di-ision. In a 1996 story former USAF physicist Robert Co0lins posted a chart and a letter to the Internet following the release of "Independence Day." M--12 chart. As a part of that posting, Col-ins made the following interesting comment. "The following has been uncovered over the years of research. -J-12 had a "cover" under which it operated and that cover was reportedly "The Office of E-rgency Preparedness, Special Facil-ties Division." I followed up on this possible role of the Special Facilities Division in the crash at Kec-sburg during a recent trip to the National Archives in Washington but was unable to come up with a single piece of paper on the unit after reviewing almost every box of files from the Office of Em-rgency Planning. Richard Ni-on The only N-xon story I wish to deal with in this presentation is the story about President Nix-n giving Jackie Gl-ason access to dead alien bodies. Three separate people claim to have been told the story by N-xon. (Bill Knell, Larry Warren and Beverly Gle-son) The key witness of the three was Beverly Gleas-n, the second wife of the comedy superstar. We have proof that she wrote a version of the story for the National En-uirer in 1983 four years before Gl-ason's death. It was a story that Beverly said made Jackie very angry. The gist of the story is that G-ason was friends with Ni-on. He lived in Miami, Florida near Nix-n' southern Wh-te House at Key Biscayne. Gl-ason saw the bodies late one night at Home-tead Air Force Base in 1973, which was close to both men's homes. It was also the base where -ixon flew in on his 92 trips to the southern Whi-e House. There is very little supporting evidence other than what Beverly Gl-aaon and the other two witnesses claimed Gl-ason told them about the event. In only the last few months Mrs. Gl-ason has reconfirmed the story she told so many years ago as being true. Gerald F-rd Gerald Fo-d as most people know was involved in the big flap of UFO sightings in Michigan in the mid-sixties. He helped to initiate a congressional look at the UFO problem. The only things I wish to bring up about For- is to play a clip which shows how quickly and dramatically opinions can change once a person enters the W-ite House. Listen to him talk about UFOs before he became president. From the March 26, 1966 "Face The Nation" show the following question and answer. Q. Mr. Fo-d, what about flying saucers? We've had some in Michigan in the past week. Do you really believe in flying saucers - you've called for a congressional investigation? Fo-d: Dave, we've had several incidents in Michigan in the last week - incidents that many reliable good citizens felt were sufficient to justify some action by our go-ernment and not the kind of flippant answer given by the Air Force where the passed it off as some "swamp gas." And in addition there are other incidents that happen from time to time - reported by people who I think are basically fully sincere and honest. It seems to me that this mystery which has been around the country with all these various sightings does require that the congress take a good look at it. They should bring up these witnesses from the Air Force and N-SA - have them interrogated by the members of a House of Se-ate committee. Let them put their records on the line, and let the people who have seen these unidentified flying objects come and testify. I think the American people would be more assured that there were, or were not, if an effective public hearing were held." F-rd did nothing on the UFO front once he became president or after. It naturally leads to the question of whether there is a big briefing given which changes all presidents' minds about releasing confirming evidence of UFOs. Jimmy C-rter It has always been questioned whether Jimmy Ca-ter was told much about evidence such as crashed saucers because he had run his campaign against the Washington insiders. He also got into trouble a couple of times with the U.S. mi-itary such as when he cut the defense budget, cancelled the B-1 bomber, leaked the stealth fighter secret. The evidence now seems to indicate Car-er was told and may actually have been told about the crashed saucers. Now, as background for those of you who did not know Jimmy Cart-r had seen a UFO, here is his version of the event. He has spoken of this sighting more times than he lu-ted after women. "There were about 20 of us standing outside of a little restaurant, I believe, or high school lunch room and a kind of green light appeared in the western sky. This was right after sundown. It got brighter and brighter, and eventually it disappeared. It didn't have a solid substance to it. It was just a very peculiar looking light. None of us could understand what it was. I never made fun of other people who have seen things of that kind..." This admission of a sighting, and a promise Carte- made during the campaign to release all UFO information, led to a deluge of 9,000 UFO letters into the W-ite House on UFOs. Here is a picture from within the Carter archives showing the letters. What most people don't know about the C-rter promise is that there was an exception, which I believe relates directly to the crashed saucer subject being discussed here today. Car-er made an exception saying he would not release UFO records with national se-urity implications. Here is what he said, "I don't believe in keeping information like that s-cret, but there may be some aspects of the UFO information, with which I am not familiar which might be related to some secr-t experiments that we were doing that involve national se-urity - a new weapons system. I surely wouldn't release that, but if it was something removed from our national sec-rity, then I as president would go ahead and release it. I see nothing wrong with that." In a related story, we have the story of the George B-sh UFO briefing of President-elect Car-er. According to Marcia Sm-th, a researcher at the Library of Congress, when Car-er asked for the files, then CI- Director Bu-h said Cart-r did not have the need to know - that being president was not sufficient "need to know." He would have to go to Congress and get the requested UFO documents declassified. The incident and the constant rumors about George H.W. B-sh's involvement in UFOs led me to make Bu-h a part of my "UFO Most Wanted" deck. An even more important story comes from prominent civil rights attorney Daniel Sh-ehan. He was called in by Marcia Smi-h as a consultant on two studies she was preparing for President Jimmy C-rter. One study was on UFOs, and the second was on extraterrestrial intelligence. Sh-ehan is famous for his legal work on the Pentagon papers, the Karen Silkwood case, Ir-n-Contra, and several other important cases. She-han's story is that he had gained access to the classified Blue Book files, through the efforts of Marcia Smi-h. In a vault in the basement of the Mad-son Building in Washington, D.C., Shee-an found pictures of a crashed flying saucer. This is information that he reported back to Sm-th. Smi-h, in turn, would have undoubtedly have related this discovery to the president in her study. She-han's account "Back in 1977 when I was asked to participate as a special mconsultant to the Library of Congress Res-arch Group analysis for President Car-er, I was given access to The Project Blue Book files - the classified sections of them in preparation for a seminar was asked to present to the top 50 scientists at the Jet Pr-pulsion Laboratory in California in the SETI program.(on the re-igious implications of extraterrestrial contact) In that context I was allowed to review the classified section of the Blue Book project. In that section I came across absolutely clear pictures, photographs of a UFO that was on the ground. It had apparently crashed and it was stuck in the side of an embankment. There was snow all around in the photograph, and there were United States Air F-rce personnel in the photograph measuring this particular craft.
