Astronaut Edgar Mitchell: UFOs are Real
By Billy Booth
On Britain's Kerrang radio show on July 23, 2008, Mitchell told the world that the 500+ witnesses telling us that a UFO from another world crashed in Roswell, NM, in 1947, were in fact, telling the truth, and that a government cover-up of UFO and alien information began at that time, and continues today. We have been visited by beings from other worlds a number of other times also, some of which he had insider knowledge of during his time at NASA. These events were also covered up. UFO proponents, of course, already took these events as truth, but now we know for certain.
There is a big difference between believing something is true, and knowing for certain that it does. I want to believe that UFOs are real, Dr. Mitchell knows UFOs are real. In all fairness, we cannot forget that he also told us that a lot of the reports of UFOs are not extraterrestrial in nature, there are a lot of reports that are misidentifications of planes, stars, comets, balloons, etc, reported as UFOs, and of course, we have many hoaxes, faked photos and videos to blur our vision of what is real.
There have been a number of well respected individuals who have told us similar things, and some of them may also have has inside information, but none of them had the impact of Mitchell's statement. Could it be the time of his announcement, coming on the heels of the O'Hare Airport sighting, the Texas sightings, and the ongoing UFO waves over Great Britain, and Pennsylvania? Possibly, or could it be who he is, a famous Astronaut?
Here is a man who stands for integrity and truth, telling us that our world has been visited by strange, small beings with big heads from another world, the things that nightmares are made of, or science fiction movies. And we believe every word he says.
"I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we've been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real," Dr Mitchell said.
Now, I believe we have been visited, but Mitchell "knows" that we have: quite a difference. This is why his statements are having such an impact on the UFO community, and even mainstream media. The reality of UFOs from another world is a known fact, not a well founded theory, riddled full of disinformation, hoaxes, and faked photographs.
It was only expected that NASA would be forced to respond to Mitchell's disclosure, and they have. But, if you look at their statement closely, I think you will find valuable information in what they did NOT say.
"NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe," a spokesman stated.
Mitchell did not say that NASA tracks UFOs. He did not say that NASA was involved in a cover-up. But, he did say that his tenure with NASA allowed him to be in a position to obtain above top-secret information. It is true that at least some of this information has leaked out through various sources before, but almost without exception, whoever had knowledge of these truths had to remain anonymous. Mitchell does not.
Therefore, previously, all of the bits and pieces of leaked information were always of a suspicious nature. We believed some of it may be true, but just what was true, and what wasn't? That is the problem we faced, attempting to separate the wheat from the chaff, and have something solid to base our beliefs on, so we could march forward. Now, with Mitchell's statement, we have something concrete to hang our hats on.
Only two days after his Kerrang interview, he again appeared on radio, this time BlogTalkRadio's ShapeShifting. He told interviewer Lisa Bonnice:
"(They) selected me and said, independently-this wasn't a group effort-independently that maybe I might be a safe person to tell their story to. And all of them confirmed, and what I'm saying is they confirmed the Roswell incident was a real incident and they in some way had some part in it that they wanted to talk about."
"He said that these locals told him 'the crash of an alien spacecraft in the Roswell area was a real event and much of the lore, I can't say all of the lore, but much of the fact that dead bodies were recovered and live ones were recovered, that they were not of this world, was the story.' And of course it was reported in the Roswell Daily Record one day and promptly denied the next day and a cover story of a weather balloon, and that was pure nonsense. That was a cover-up."
It seems that Mitchell was not just sitting and soaking up top-secret information, he sought out confirmation for what he had been told.
In a recent interview with the Discovery Channel, he made the following statement regarding what he had been told about Roswell:
Mitchell also gives us some insight to the reason our government has kept these and other UFO related information above top-secret. He stated that the Air Force is responsible for protecting our skies, and they and various other governmental agencies did not know what to do with the crashed saucer, and its superior technology.
They certainly did not want the Soviets to get their hands on it, and at the same, the best course of action was to just lie about it, and keep it to themselves. They labeled it "above top-secret," and that created the long running iron curtain separating a secret group within the government, and the American public. It is believed by some UFO researchers that this group was the Majestic-12, which is often referred to as MAJ-12.
Mitchell's reference to this secret group does not in any way give validation to the so-called Majestic-12 documents, but it does give us proof that a group to protect UFO information did exist, and with ongoing UFO events of importance, it is only reasonable to assume that the group continues today.
There is no doubt that Dr. Mitchell's statements will have long reaching consequence in the UFO community, and hopefully, mainstream media will pay a more serious look at reports of UFOs. So now, we who have always believed that there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, can know without reservation that this belief is based on fact.
We will continue to look for answers as to why they are here, where they come from, how they get here, and what we will do when and if they decide to make themselves known openly to this curious, tiny, third planet from the Sun we call Earth.
