Subject: [exopolitics] Sir Eric Gairy and His E.T. Secret


Aloha, here's a fascinating account of the political events
surrounding Sir Eric Gairy who was the Prime Minister of Grenada
(1974-79) and prime sponsor of a UN Resolution to study UFOs and
extraterrestrial life that was adopted in 1978. 'Coincidentally', Sir
Eric's government was 'overthrown' by a Marxist coup just as he was
about to meet with UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim to further
discuss ET/UFO related affairs in 1979. I think Wesly Bateman's
account of Sir Eric is likely a very account of what was happening
behind the scenes in Sir Eric's profound exopolitical difficulties. 

Thanks to Wesley Bateman for bringing this story to my attention.

In peace

Sir Eric Gairy and His E.T. Secret

By Wesley H. Bateman

Sir Eric M. Gairy, Prime Minister and Minister for External Affairs
of the Caribbean Island nation of Grenada, spoke before the United
Nations, General Assembly, Thirty-Third Session, 32nd Plenary
Meeting, on Thursday, 12 October 1978.

The key points of Sir Eric's U.N. speech which are relative to this
article are quoted below  an underlined.

182: "During our four years of membership in the United Nations we
have raised many matters of importance�some of which have been
considered innovative, others were current and regular but our views
ushered in new thoughts about them, thoughts that aroused new vistas
in an attempt to tackle traditional thought-patterns. And still
further we have been introducing some very thought-provoking subjects
of world importance and world concern, subjects considered by some to
be strange and extraneous, but which we feel are sufficiently
important and significant to merit our constant articulation and
review of them, however and whenever the opportunity permits. Permit
me to refer to only a few: the question of women's rights, the
universality of God, economic cruelty, the problems of man and his
environment, disarmament, man and his material and spiritual
behavior, the Bermuda Triangle, unidentified flying objects and
extraterrestrial phenomena, decolonization and territorial integrity,
human rights, and undue solace given to terrorists."

It is reported that prior to returning home to Grenada Sir Eric
visited with President Jimmy Carter, during which they discussed
their individual UFO sighting experiences and the pending U.N.
resolution. It is also reported that Zbigniew Brzezinski attended
this meeting.

Sir Eric returned to New York City on March 12, 1979 to meet with
the then Secretary General of the United Nations, Kurt Walheim. The
official purpose of this meeting was to discuss the fact that on
December 18, 1978, the United Nations General Assembly voted to
approve decision 33/426, inviting U.N. Member States "to take
appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific
research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including
unidentified flying objects, and to inform the Secretary-General of
the observations, research and evaluation of such activities." The
United States was the sole U.N. member nation which unsuccessfully
attempted to block that 1978 UN E.T. resolution.

The efforts made by the United States to block this United Nations
resolution was by exerting various forms of pressure on a number of
other member nations.

On the very day that Sir Eric was to visit with Kurt Walheim and
discuss the UFO resolution, it was learned that he and his government
had been overthrown by a Cuban sponsored Marxist group, known as the
New Jewel Movement (NJM). The NJM was led by a young attorney named
Maurice Bishop, who along with 46 others planned and executed the
coup using weapons smuggled into Grenada in a barrel of petroleum jelly.

At this point Sir Eric was stranded in the United States, during
which he lived in New York City and spent considerable time
broadcasting anti-Cuban and anti-Communist radio messages from
station WLIB, to listeners on Grenada and the Caribbean islands of
Trinidad and Tobago. During his stay in New York Sir Eric was under
constant US Government surveillance.

Maurice Bishop and the NJM responded to Sir Eric's radio messages
with some radio messages of their own. Other than trying to hang
charges of corruption on him and his cabinet members they
concentrated on destroying Sir Eric's character in particular. They
emphasized that a search of Sir Eric's home brought to light physical
evidence that he practiced "Voodoo."  They also said that they
learned that he arranged  and participated in sexual orgies during
which drugs  were used. They also said that his declared belief in
the reality of UFOs was  just another piece of evidence that proved
beyond all possible doubt that he was mentally defective.

Oblivious to what was going on the Island of Grenada at the time, I
was living in the community of Mira Mesa , which was located a few
miles  north of San Diego, California. At the time I was director of
the "Molecular Energy Research Institute" which was engaged in the
construction of a device  intended to extract entrapped crude oil
from tar sands and shale rock. Our office and laboratories were
located directly across the roadway from the "Miramar Naval Air

I remember that it was a monday morning when Don B..... came into the
office filled with excitement. Don was in the public relations
business and also managed  the funds which a Canadian oil company had
invested in our project. As a sideline Don also restored classic cars
(a subject that will be mention again).

Don started our conversation with the question: "Do you know Sir Eric
Gairy?" My answer was "no." The name was slightly familiar, but I had
no idea who Don was talking about.

Don went on to explain how he on occasion attended meetings of a
group calling itself the "Dilettantes. The group met once a week in
La Jolla, California to delve briefly into subjects such as  French
cooking, art, travel destinations, and even UFOs. The subject of UFOs
was one they just could not leave alone, an UFOs were the subject of
the previous Friday night meeting that Don attended.

Don went on to say that Sir Eric Gary, the recently deposed Prime
Minister of the Caribbean Island of Grenada was also present at the
meeting. Sir Eric asked the host if he could address the group and
obtained immediate permission to do so.

Sir Eric first asked the group if any one of them could help him
locate any of the people he had listed on a a sheet of paper. Don
said that he could have fainted when the first name Sir Eric read
from his list was mine.

Don was quick to tell Sir Eric that he knew me personally and could
arrange for us to meet.

That afternoon I met Sir Eric Gairy in Don B.....'s Point Loma home
which  was on a hillside that overlooked the Pacific Ocean.

Sir Eric first informed me that he preferred to be addressed as
Doctor  Gairy.

Dr. Gairy was accompanied by a young African American minister (who's
name I can not recall). I really can't remember anything the young
man might have said. I did become aware that Dr. Gairy was the
Reverend's house guest. Both of these gentlemen were well mannered
and very well dressed.

This meeting was one of many that Dr. Gary an I had over the
following two weeks. Some times we met as much as two times a day
either at Don B..... house, at the Molecular Energy offices and at
various restaurants for lunch or dinner.

Eventually Dr. Gairy's companion (the young minister) disappeared
and Scot ..... (a friend of mine) or Jennifer B..... (Don B.....'s
daughter) became Dr. Gairy's chauffeurs and tour guides. They
escorted Dr. Gairy to the Zoo, Sea World and the Ruben H. Fleet Space

I learned from Scot that Dr. Gairy had rented a studio apartment in a
very run down part of San Diego and was definitely being followed
about by what appeared to be government agents. A number of articles
written about Dr. Gairy, all make the point that he was under
constant government surveillance when he lived in New York and in San

On one occasion we went to an early lunch at a restaurant that was
located on a pier. In our party was Dr, Gairy, Don B...., his
daughter Jennifer, Scot and myself. With in minutes we were joined by
5 young  men in black business suits. Each took  individual tables
which surrounded us. That is none  of them sat together.

In the course of our conversation the relative locations of Grenada
and the Panama Canal came up. The room which was silent to begin
with, suddenly got even more quiet. Dr. Gairy gave me a knowing
glance and moved his eyes  from side to side to alert me . The
conversation was immediately changed to the bird life of San Diego
and Grenada.

When we left, we were sure to take some pieces of bread to feed the
sea gulls that were waiting patiently on the railing of the deck
outside the restaurant. Scot, Jennifer and Dr. Gairy walked down the
deck and out of sight. Don and I had parked one of his restored
classic cars in another parking area. From our position we watched as
one of the "men in black" who was in the restaurant came out and
hurried after Dr. Gairy and the others.

Don and I watched as the other 4 men in black came out of the
restaurant together and got in to an older model car that had at
least   50 antennas placed on the roof, fenders and trunk of the

I quickly scribbled a note to Don which said: "The car could be
bugged." With in 3 days of the event Don was able to sell the car
along with any electronic bugs the men in black might have planted.

Finally one afternoon Dr. Gairy came to the Molecular Energy offices,
I sent for some sandwiches from a near by delicatessen. This was the
first time we were able to get together privately.

Dr. Gairy looked at me smiled and said : "Any questions?"

I inquired as to what happened to the young minister who he was with
when we first met.  With no hesitation Dr, Gairy told me that the
"young man felt that his wife was becoming infatuated with him and
they mutually agreed  it was best for Sir Eric to find another place
to live." He added that the whole thing was simply in the young man's

My next question was: Where did he learn of me and my interest in
UFOs?  He said, that "after a number of UFO sightings  that were
reported though out the island  of Grenada, he put out the word that
he wanted to talk to anyone that had any knowledge of UFOs or
intelligent extraterrestrial life. From this search, a woman
contacted him that claimed she had telepathic contact with
extraterrestrials. She gave him the list of names he should contact
for more information. When he mentioned that he wanted to learn as
much as possible from me about the "Frequency Barrier" I knew Dr.
Gairy was seriously trying to solved the UFO mystery.

Dr. Gairy went on to tell me that he always believed that UFOs were
extraterrestrial space craft, but he had very little time to study
the subject. The Grenada sightings force him give the subject his
full attention. The question in his mind was: What interest could any
extraterrestrial race have in the island of Grenada? If they made an
open physical contact by landing on the island, how was he going to
deal  with them? His advisors were at a total loss as to what should
be done.

Dr. Gairy owned a string of restaurants on the island. Nightly he
could be found at the "Evening Palace" one of his night clubs at
Morne Rouge above the western point of a five-mile white sand beach.
  From this club it is said Sir Eric conducted business like a small
town American Mayor, who also owned the local hardware store.

It said that for a fee or a bottle or two of champagne a person could
sit with the Prime Minister and present him with a petition or

Dr. Gairy confirmed this story to me  about his nightly audiences at
the "Evening Palace." For as he said, "it was during an  late evening
at this night club that a fisherman from the north east coast of
Grenada came to him with a story that would change his life forever."
With in minutes of hearing the fisherman's story, he put together a
group of  people he trusted, a small military unit with two trucks,
and a photographer.

They followed the fisherman  north and arrived at the coast just
before dawn. There they met with two other fisherman that were
standing guard over a tarp covered object. The tarp was removed to
reveal a giant human body that was between 7 1/2 to 8 feet in length.
One of the fisherman directed Dr. Gairy to the fact that the body had
six fingers on each hand. The body appeared to be of a white skinned
man that had long white braided hair.  Sir Eric said the body
appeared to be of a young man, who if compared to a man of normal
size would  have been in his early thirties.

By now Sir Eric had concluded that he and his group were looking at
an extraterrestrial. He ordered the photographer to take pictures of
the body with flash bulbs, but had the foresight to tell the
photographer to save some film and wait for better day light.

The alien was dressed in a skin tight 1 piece dark blue suit the
footwear was attached. This appearance first fooled the fisherman
that found him to think that the body was that of a scuba diver that
met with some misfortune. After a closer examination they quickly
realized that this was not a scuba diver from this world.

Dr. Gairy said that one could stretch the alien's suit to about two
feet from the body. The weave did not separate. After releasing the
material it would slowly return to its original position on the body
and during the course of it doing so, emitted a low audible "humming"

As the sun rose it became evident to Sir Eric and his excited group
that the beach was covered by metal wreckage of various sizes. There
were also pieces of metal and "containers" rolling about in the surf.
These items were photographed.

When all the wreckage they could find on the beach and in the surf
was gathered it filled about 1/2 the bed of one of the two pick up
trucks that they brought with them. With considerable physical effort
they placed the covered alien body on the bed of the second truck.

Among an estimated number of 8 metal containers, they found that they
were able to force open two of them. The largest of the two contained
specimens of fish and plant life, as well as packets of sand  and
coral from the sea bed.

Sir Eric had the fisherman go further out to sea to search for more
bodies and wreckage. Three soldiers were left at the site to look for
more wreckage and wait for the fisherman to return. The fishermen
never returned. The soldiers were eventually ordered back to their
barracks with additional orders not to say anything about what they
had seen.

Sir Eric paused in his story at this point, an stared at me as he
waited for my reaction:

   I asked him: What happen to the body? Was there an autopsy? Was the
body preserved?

His answer was that the only place that he would trust to perform a
proper autopsy was at the "Medical School." Though he would not say
where he sent the body, I got the feeling that he did in fact send
the body to the school for preservation, if not for an autopsy. I
think he did this in order to give himself time to think about who
else he was going to tell about the alien, and what he could gain for
his country and possibly what he might gain for himself (?).

    I also asked if he ever got any of the other containers open? If
so, what was in them?  His reply was he never saw any of the other
containers opened, He said that he ordered that any one who tried to
open one would be strongly punished.

My next question was: Who else knows about this event?

His answer was: "There is a small number of people that I have
confided in.  Not being on Grenada the orders I gave to those in the
know, not to talk about this matter are not able to be enforced. I
have no idea who these people might have told."

I asked if he told Kurt Walheim. He said he never got the time or
opportunity. "Although the alien body was really my only reason for
arranging a one on one talk with him, I was emotionally reacting to
the rebellion and I knew I could not prove the story, unless I was
back in Grenada and personally showed him the alien body. Returning
to Grenada and being reinstated as Prime Minister was my first

My next question was: What do you intend to do about this matter in
the future?

Sir Eric answered: "I am still formulating my plans."

After this meeting I never met with or talked to Sir Eric Gairy
again. He  suddenly vacated his apartment. I never heard a word as to
where he went or what he did.

On October 19, 1983  Bernard Coard, a hard line member of the New
Jewel Movement (the group that over threw Sir Eric) led a military
coup and placed  Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and other leading
moderates under arrest. When a mob of Bishop supporters freed the
ousted prime minister and his allies from prison,  troops  responded
by killing dozens of protesters and executed Bishop and also two
other cabinet members.


   It is reasonable to assume that a U.S. invasion of Grenada was
planned as early as two years before the revolution's self
annialation (the Bishop over throw), which gave the United States
(Reagan Administration) the excuse it had been waiting for.

The U.S. invasion of Grenada came in the fall of 1983.  The bloody
coup in Grenada, along with a presumed threat to American students
attending the St. George's Medical School on the island, provided the
U.S. with an excellent excuse to eliminate a Marxist regime which was
allied with Cuba.

The island quickly fell under American control.  They were met by
considerable resistance from the Grenadian army and Cuban military
units stationed on the island. Heavy combat continued for several
days, but as the invasion force grew to more than 7,000  troops.  The
defenders either surrendered or fled into the island's hill country.
Some fighting continued as U.S. troops hunted down those who resisted
the invasion  to the bitter end.

U.S. combat forces left Grenada in the middle of December, after pro-
American government was established on the Island.

The following is quote from and article titled;" Foreign Policy In
Focus" By Stephen Zunes. Zunes  is an associate professor of politics
and chair of the Peace & Justice Studies Program at the University of
San Francisco, and serves as the Middle East editor for the Foreign
Policy in Focus Project. He is the author of Tinderbox: U.S. Middle
East Policy and the Roots of Terrorism (Common Courage, 2002).

====================================================================================================="The major justification for the invasion was the protection of
American lives. Reagan administration officials falsely claimed that
the island's only operating airport was closed, offering the students
no escape. In reality, scores of people left the island on charter
flights the day before the U.S. invasion, noting that there was not
even a visible military presence at the airport and that customs
procedures were normal. Regularly scheduled flights as well as sea
links from neighboring Caribbean islands had ceased as of October 21,
however, though this came as a direct result of pressure placed on
these governments to do so by U.S. officials. Apparently, by limiting
the ability of Americans who wished to depart from leaving, the
Reagan administration could then use their continued presence on the
troubled island as an excuse to invade. The Reagan administration
admitted that no significant nonmilitary means of evacuating
Americans was actively considered.

Particular concern was expressed over the fate of 800 American
students at the U.S.-run St. George's University School of Medicine.
The safe arrival in the United States of the initial group of happy
and relieved students evacuated from Grenada resulted in excellent
photo opportunities for the administration. It appears, however, that
the students' lives were never actually in any danger prior to the
invasion itself.

Grenadan and Cuban officials had met only days earlier with
administrators of the American medical school and guaranteed the
students' safety. Urgent requests by the State Department's Milan
Bish to medical school officials that they publicly request U.S.
military intervention to protect the students were refused. Five
hundred parents of the medical students cabled President Reagan to
insist he not take any "precipitous action." Staff members from the
U.S. embassy in Barbados visited Grenada and saw no need to evacuate
the students.

The medical school's chancellor, Charles Modica, polled students and
found that 90% did not want to be evacuated. Despite repeated
inquiries as to whether Washington was considering military action,
he was told nothing of the sort was being considered. As the invasion
commenced, Dr. Modica angrily denounced the invasion as totally
unnecessary and a far greater risk to the students' safety than
Grenada's domestic crisis. Vice-chancellor Geoffrey Bourne and Bursar
Gary Solin also declared their steadfast opposition. The U.S. media
focused great attention on the students who were first evacuated and
"debriefed" by U.S. officials who generally supported the invasion.
However, virtually no attention was given to those who stayed behind,
who tended to be more familiar with the island and who largely
opposed U.S. intervention. There were no confirmed reports of any
American civilians harmed or threatened before or during the
invasion. It was three days after U.S. troops initially landed before
they decided to take control of the second medical school campus,
raising questions as to whether the safety of Americans was really
the foremost priority."
=====================================================================================================It is now clear that the St. George's Medical School was a prime
location the U.S. Military wanted to capture as soon as possible.
Even  though it is also now very evident that the American students
at the school were at no time in any danger.

I think it is safe for me to conclude that Sir Eric by this time had
passed on to the U.S. government where he had place the giant alien
body and the metallic debris that was recovered that early morning on
the island of Grenada.

It is known that a team of specially selected Graves Registration
(GRREG) personnel were assembled on 27 October 1983 at the Dover Air
Force Base mortuary in Dover, Delaware. This group of experts which
were to serve as an Identification team were assigned to the US
forces occupying the St. George's Medical School on the Island of
Grenada. Their cover story was they were sent there to identify the
bodies of the crew members of two helicopters that accidentally
crashed during the invasion. Why were specialists needed for this

Sir Eric Matthew Gairy returned to Grenada in 1984, from exile in the
United States. There he suffered from a stroke, and became totally
blind , he also became mentally incapacitated. Sir Eric Gairy died on
23 August 1997. He was given a state funeral as he was recognized for
being a unique personality in the history of Grenadian politics.

The reader can find a great deal about Sir Eric Gairy by searching
the Internet. You will find that he is mostly described as once
being  a despotic dictator of the Island nation of Grenada who was
over thrown by a Marxist group of rebels. Furthermore the reader will
find that most author's of these articles relish in the fact that
they have the opportunity to say that Sir Eric was a strange person
that believed that extraterrestrials existed and were visiting the
planet Earth.

I am pleased that I  had the personal honor and privilege of meeting
Sir Eric Gairy. I found him to be a gentleman of exceptional
intelligence and truthfulness. I believe that the real  Sir Eric that
I met  would be best understood by reading the speech he gave before
the United Nations, General Assembly, Thirty-Third Session, 32nd
Plenary Meeting, on Thursday, 12 October 1978.

After the Invasion of Grenada President Ronald Reagan in several
speeches he said variations of the following statement:

"At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S. President said that if the earth
faced an invasion by extraterrestrials, the United states and the
Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not
dispute the hypothesis, although I think it's early yet to worry
about such an intrusion. It is much more important to think about the
problems that have entered in our common home."

I wonder what put this idea in his head???

The fact that Sir Eric said that one of the alien  metal boxes  that
was found on the beach with the alien body contained specimens of
fish and sea plant life does bring to mind the possibility that the
alien met with a disaster after visiting this unique marine reef. Or
maybe he was part of a expedition to restock the reef.

Take note of the fact that animals thought to be extinct are
beginning to reappear on the Earth along with a considerable number
of species never before seen or cataloged. There is evidence that
this repopulation of extinct animals and initation of new species to
the Earth is being carried out by extraterrestrials.
