1954 Greada Treaty (Eisenhower’s 1954 Meeting with Extraterrestrials)


Eisenhower’s 1954 Meeting With Extraterrestrials:

The Fiftieth Anniversary of First Contact?

On the night and early hours of February 20-21, 1954, while on a ‘vacation’
to Palm Springs, California, President Dwight Eisenhower went missing and
allegedly was taken to Edwards Air force base for a secret meeting. When he
showed up the next morning at a church service in Los Angeles, reporters were
told that he had to have emergency dental treatment the previous evening and had
visited a local dentist. The dentist later appeared at a function that evening
and presented as the ‘dentist’ who had treated Eisenhower.


The missing night and morning has subsequently fueled rumors that Eisenhower
was using the alleged dentist visit as a cover story for an extraordinary event.
The event is possibly the most significant that any American President could
have conducted: an alleged ‘First Contact’ meeting with extraterrestrials at
Edwards Air Force base (previously Muroc Airfield), and the beginning of a
series of meetings with different extraterrestrial races that led to a ‘Greada
Treaty’ that was eventually signed. This astonishing First Contact event, if it
occurred, will experience its 50th anniversary on February 20-21, 2004.

—–Eisenhower’s 1954 Meeting With ETs: NOW the 50th Anniversary—–


This paper explores the evidence that the First Contact meeting had occurred
with extraterrestrials with a distinctive ‘Nordic’ appearance. The likelihood of
an agreement having been spurned with this ‘Nordic race’, then started a series
of meetings that led to a Greada Treaty eventually being signed with a different
extraterrestrial race dubbed the ‘Greys’, and the motivations of the different
extraterrestrial races involved in these Greada Treaty discussions.


The paper will further examine why these events were kept secret for so long,
the significance of the 50th anniversary of Eisenhower’s meeting with
extraterrestrials, and whether an official disclosure announcement is likely in
the near future.


—–Circumstantial Evidence Supporting ‘First Contact’ Meeting with


There is circumstantial and testimonial evidence supporting “Ike’s” meeting
with ETs and the start of a series of meetings that culminated in the signing of
a Greada Treaty with a different group of ETs. The most intriguing are
circumstances surrounding Ike’s alleged winter vacation to Palm Springs,
California from February 17-24, 1954.


First, the “vacation for the President” was announced rather suddenly and
came less than a week after his ‘quail shooting’ vacation in Georgia. According
to UFO researcher, William Moore, all this was quite unusual and suggested that
there was more to the one week visit to Palm Springs than a simple holiday. [2]


Secondly, on Saturday night of February 20, 1954, President Eisenhower did
“go missing”–fueling press speculation that he had taken ill or even died. In a
hastily convened press conference, Eisenhower’s Press Secretary announced that
Eisenhower had lost a tooth cap while eating fried chicken and had to be rushed
to a local dentist. A local dentist was introduced at an official function on
Sunday February 21, as “the dentist who had treated the president”. [3] Moore’s
investigation of the incident concluded that the dentist’s visit was being used
as a cover story for Eisenhower’s true whereabouts.


Consequently, Eisenhower was missing for an entire evening and could easily
have been taken from Palm Springs to the nearby Muroc Airfield [later renamed
Edwards Air Force Base]. The unscheduled nature of the President’s vacation, the
missing President and the dentist cover story provide circumstantial evidence
that the true purpose of his Palm Springs vacation was for him to attend an
event whose importance was such that [–NSA felt–ed} it could not be disclosed
to the general public. A meeting with ETs may well have been the true purpose of
his visit.


—–Gerald Light’s Letter—–

that Eisenhower Met With Ets.–The
first public source alleging a meeting with ETs was Gerald Light who in a letter
dated April 16, 1954, to Meade Layne, then Director of Borderland Sciences
Research Associates (now Foundation), claimed he was part of a delegation of
community leaders to an alleged meeting with ETs at Edwards Air Force Base.



In a subsequent article, Meade Layne described Light as a “gifted and highly
educated writer and lecturer”, who was skilled both in clairvoyance and the
occult. [4] Light was a well-known metaphysical community leader in the Southern
California area. The alleged purpose of him and others on the delegation was to
test public reaction to the presence of ETs. Light described the circumstances
of the meeting as follows:


“My dear friends: I have just returned from Muroc [Edwards Air Force Base].
The report is true — devastatingly true!

“I made the journey in company with Franklin Allen of the Hearst papers and
Edwin Nourse of Brookings Institute (Truman’s erstwhile financial advisor) and
Bishop MacIntyre of L.A. (confidential names for the present, please). When we
were allowed to enter the restricted section (after about six hours in which we
were checked on every possible item, event, incident and aspect of our personal
and public lives).

I had the distinct feeling that the world had come to an end with fantastic
realism. For I have never seen so many human beings in a state of complete
collapse and confusion, as they realized that their own world had indeed ended
with such finality as to beggar description. The reality of the ‘other plane’
aeroforms is now and forever removed from the realms of speculation and made a
rather painful part of the consciousness of every responsible scientific and
political group.

During my two days’ visit I saw five separate and distinct types of aircraft
being studied and handled by our Air Force officials — with the assistance and
permission of the Etherians! I have no words to express my reactions. It has
finally happened. It is now a matter of history. President Eisenhower–as you
may already know–was spirited over to Muroc one night during his visit to Palm
Springs recently. And it is my conviction that he will ignore the terrific
conflict between the various ‘authorities’ and go directly to the people via
radio and television — if the impasse continues much longer. From what I could
gather, an official statement to the country is being prepared for delivery
about the middle of May. “[5]




Of course no such formal announcement was made, and Light’s supposed meeting
has either been the best-kept secret of the twentieth century or the fabrication
of an elderly mystic known for out of body experiences. The events Light
describes in his meeting in terms of the panic and confusion of many of those
present, the emotional impact of the alleged landing, and the tremendous
difference of opinion on what to do in terms of telling the public and
responding to the extraterrestrial visitors, are plausible descriptions of what
may have occurred. Indeed, the psychological and emotional impact Light
describes for senior national security leaders at the meeting is consistent with
what could be expected for such a ‘life changing event’. A further way of
determining Light’s claim is to investigate the figures he named along with
himself as part of the community delegation, and whether they could have been
plausible candidates for such a meeting.


Dr Edwin Nourse (1883-1974) was the first chairman of the Council of Economic
Advisors to the President (1944-1953) and was President Truman’s chief economic
advisor. [6] Nourse officially retired to private life in 1953 and would
certainly have been a good choice of someone who could give confidential
economic advise to the Eisenhower administration. If Dr Nourse was present at
such a meeting, he did so in order to provide his expertise on the possible
economic impact of First Contact with extraterrestrials.


Another of the individuals mentioned by Light was Bishop MacIntyre. Cardinal
James Francis MacIntyre was the bishop and head of the Catholic Church in Los
Angeles (1948-1970) and would have been an important gauge for the possible
reaction from religious leaders generally, and in particular from the most
influential and powerful religious institution on the planet – the Roman
Catholic Church. In particular, Cardinal MacIntyre would have been a good choice
as a representative for the Vatican since he was appointed the first Cardinal of
the Western United States by Pope Pius XII in 1952. All Cardinal MacIntyre’s
correspondence is closed to researchers thus making it impossible to confirm
what impact the visit to Muroc had on him and what he communicated to other
church leaders and the Vatican. [7] Cardinal MacIntyre had sufficient rank and
authority to represent the Catholic Church and the religious community in a
delegation of community leaders.


[The fact that the Vatican subsequently established its own astronomical
observatory in the American southwest attests to the urgency with which Bishop
MacIntyre’s messages were met by the Vatican.–ed.]


The fourth member of the delegation of community leaders was Franklin
Winthrop Allen, a former reporter with the Hearst Newspapers Group. [8] Allen
was 80 years old at the time, author of a book instructing reporters on how to
deal with Congressional Committee Hearings, and would have been a good choice
for a member of the press who could maintain confidentiality.


The four represented senior leaders of the religious, spiritual, economic and
newspaper communities and were well advanced in age and status. They would
certainly have been plausible choices for a community delegation that could
provide confidential advice on a possible public response to a First Contact
event involving extraterrestrial races. Such a selection would have constituted
a ‘wise men’ group that would have been entirely in character for the
conservative nature of American society in 1954.

While Light may well contrived such a list in a fabricated account or ‘out of
body’ experience as Moore implies in his analysis, there is nothing in Light’s
selection that eliminates the possibility that they were plausible members of
such a delegation. [9] At face value then, the selection of such a ‘wise men’
group gives some credence to Light’s claim.

It may be concluded then that following items all make up circumstantial
evidence that a meeting with ETs occurred. The first is Eisenhower’s missing
night. The second is the weak ‘cover story’ used for his absence. The third is
Light’s description of actual events at the meeting in terms of the
psychological and emotional impact of the described meeting which is consistent
with what could be anticipated. The final is Light’s description of the
composition of community leaders or ‘wise men’ at the meeting. These four items
collectively provide circumstantial evidence that a meeting with Ets is likely
to have occurred and that Eisenhower was present.

—–Testimonies Supporting Ike’s Meeting With Ets—–

There are a number of other sources alleging an ET meeting at Edwards Air
Force Base that corresponded to a formal First Contact event. These sources are
based on testimonies of ‘whistleblowers’ who witnessed documents or learned from
their ‘insider contacts’ of such a meeting. These testimonies describe what
appears to be two separate sets of meetings involving different ET groups who
met either with President Eisenhower and/or with Eisenhower administration
officials over a short period of time.

The first of these meetings–the actual ‘First Contact’ event–did not lead
to an agreement and the ETs were effectively spurned. The second of these
meetings did lead to an agreement, and this has been apparently become the basis
of subsequent secret interactions with extraterrestrial races involved in the
‘Greada Treaty’ that was signed. There is some discrepancy in the sequence of
meetings and where they were held, but all agree that a ‘First Contact’ meeting
involving President Eisenhower did occur, and that one of these meetings
occurred with his February 1954 visit to Edwards Air force base.

The first version of Eisenhower’s meeting is described by one of the most
‘controversial’ whistleblowers to ever have come forward into the public arena
to describe an ET presence. William Cooper served on the Naval Intelligence
briefing team for the Commander of the Pacific Fleet between 1970-73, and had
access to classified documents that he had to review in order to fulfill his
briefing duties. He describes the background and nature of the ‘First contact’
with ETs as follows:

“In 1953 Astronomers discovered large objects in space which were moving
toward the Earth. It was first believed that they were asteroids. Later evidence
proved that the objects could only be Spaceships.

“Project Sigma intercepted alien radio communications. When the objects
reached the Earth they took up a very high orbit around the Equator. There were
several huge ships, and their actual intent was unknown. Project Sigma, and a
new project, Plato, through radio communications using the computer binary
language, was able to arrange a landing that resulted in face to face contact
with alien beings from another planet. Project Plato was tasked with
establishing diplomatic relations with this race of space aliens.

“In the meantime a race of human looking aliens contacted the U.S.
Government. This alien group warned us against the aliens that were orbiting the
Equator and offered to help us with our spiritual development. They demanded
that we dismantle and destroy our nuclear weapons as the major condition. They
refused to exchange technology citing that we were spiritually unable to handle
the technology which we then possessed. They believed that we would use any new
technology to destroy each other. This race stated that we were on a path of
self destruction and we must stop killing each other, stop polluting the Earth,
stop raping the Earth’s natural resources, and learn to live in harmony.

“These terms were met with extreme suspicion, especially the major condition
of nuclear disarmament. It was believed that meeting that condition would leave
us helpless in the face of an obvious alien threat. We also had nothing in
history to help with the decision. Nuclear disarmament was not considered to be
within the best interest of the United States. The overtures were rejected.”

The significant point about Cooper’s version is that the humanoid
extraterrestrial race was not willing to enter into technology exchanges that
might help weapons development, and instead was focused on spiritual
development. Significantly, the overtures of these ETs were turned down.

—–Secondary Confirmation—–

That the First Contact meeting involving ETs effectively spurned them for
taking what might be called “a principled stand on technology” assistance and
nuclear weapons comes from the son of a former Navy Commander who claimed his
father had been present at the First Contact event on February 20-21, 1954.

According to Charles L. Suggs, a retired Sergeant from the US Marine Corps,
his father Charles L. Suggs, (1909-1987) was a former Commander with the US Navy
who attended the meeting at Edwards Air force base with Eisenhower. [11] Sgt
Suggs recounted his father’s experiences from the meeting in a 1991 interview
with a prominent UFO researcher:

“Charlie’s father, Navy Commander Charles Suggs accompanied Pres. Ike along
with others on Feb. 20th. They met and spoke with two white-haired Nordics that
had pale blue eyes and colorless lips. The spokesman stood a number of feet away
from Ike and would not let him approach any closer. A second Nordic stood on the
extended ramp of a bi-convex saucer that stood on tripod landing gear on the
landing strip. According to Charlie, there were B-58 Hustlers on the field even
though the first one did not fly officially till 1956. These visitors said they
came from another solar system. They posed detailed questions about our nuclear
testing.” [12]

Another ‘whistleblower’ who confirms that First Contact involved an
extraterrestrial race being spurned for their principled stand on technology
transfer is the son of the famous creator of the Lear Jet, William Lear. John
Lear is a former Lockheed L-1011 Captain who flew over 150 test aircraft and
held 18 world speed records, and during the late 1960’s, 1970’s and early 1980’s
was a contract pilot for the CIA. Lear developed a close relationship with CIA
Director (DCI) William Colby who was in charge of covert operations in Vietnam
before becoming DCI. According to Lear there had indeed been a warning from
another race prior to an agreement being eventually signed, and he claimed they
visited Muroc/Edward and the following occurred:

“In 1954, President Eisenhower met with a representative of another alien
species at Muroc Test Center, which is now called Edwards Airforce Base. This
alien suggested that they could help us get rid of the Greys but Eisenhower
turned down their offer because they offered no technology. “[13]

Cooper’s and Lear’s idea of more than one ET race interacting with the
Eisenhower administration is supported by other whistleblowers such as former
Master Sergeant Robert Dean who like Cooper, had access to top secret documents
while working in the intelligence division for the Supreme Commander of a major
US military command. In Dean’s 27 year distinguished military career, he served
at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe where he witnessed these
documents while serving under the Supreme Allied Commander of Europe. Dean

“The group at the time–there were just four that they knew of for
certain–and the Greys were one of those groups. There was a group that looked
exactly like we do. There was a human group that looked so much like us that
that really drove the admirals and the generals crazy because they determined
that these people, and they had seen them repeatedly, they had had contact with
them, there had been abductions, there had been contacts… Two other groups,
there was a very large group, I say large, they were 6-8 maybe sometimes 9 feet
tall and they were humanoid, but they were very pale, very white, didn’t have
any hair on their bodies at all. And then there was another group that had sort
of a reptilian quality to them. We had encountered them, military people and
police officers all over the world have run into these guys. They had vertical
pupils in their eyes and their skin seemed to have a quality very much like what
you find on the stomach of a lizard. So those were the four they knew of in
1964.” [14]

There is some discrepancy in the testimonials as to which Air force base the
spurned ETs met with President Eisenhower and/or Eisenhower administration
officials. Cooper claims this occurred at Homestead Air force base in Florida,
and not Edwards. [15] On the other hand Lear and Suggs suggest it occurred at
Edwards. In his letter, Gerald Light pointed to intense disagreement amongst
Eisenhower officials in responding to the ETs at the Edwards AFB meeting. Such
intense disagreement may predictably have occurred if national security
officials were responding to an ET request to abandon the pursuit of weapons
technologies. Given the intensity of the Cold War, the national security
officials present may well have decided it was more prudent to seek better terms
before agreeing to the ETs request. Light’s testimony implies that the meeting
at Edwards did not result in an agreement, but instead resulted in intense
disagreement between Eishenhower officials. Consequently, I will conclude that
the Lear and Suggs version is more accurate, and that the ‘First Contact’
meeting occurred at Edwards Air force base in February 20-21, 1954.

—–The Subsequent 1954 Agreement with Ets—–

According to the testimonies examined so far, the February 20-21, 1954
meeting was not successful, and the ETs were spurned due to their refusal to
enter into technology exchanges and insistence on [OUR–ed] nuclear disarmament
by the US and presumably other major world powers. Cooper describes the
circumstances of a subsequent agreement that was reached after the failure of
the first meeting. While Cooper has a different version of dates and times for
the 1954 meetings, he agrees that there were two sets of meetings involving
different ETs meeting with President Eisenhower and/or Eisenhower administration
officials. [16]

Later in 1954 the race of large nosed Gray Aliens which had been orbiting the
Earth landed at Holloman Air Force Base. A basic agreement was reached. This
race identified themselves as originating from a Planet around a red star in the
Constellation of Orion which we called Betelgeuse. They stated that their planet
was dying and that at some unknown future time they would no longer be able to
survive there. [17]

The meeting at Holloman Air force base in New Mexico has reportedly been the
site of subsequent ET meetings with the same ETs who it will be shown signed the
1954 Greada Treaty. In 1972-73, for example, the producers Robert Emenegger and
Allan Sandler, had allegedly been offered and witnessed actual Air force film
footage of a meeting involving Grey ETs that occurred at Holloman Air force base
in 1971. [18] Cooper explained the terms of the 1954 Greada Treaty reached with
the Grey ETs as follows:

“The Greada Treaty stated that the aliens would not interfere in our affairs
and we would not interfere in theirs. We would keep their presence on earth a
secret. They would furnish us with advanced technology and would help us in our
technological development. They would not make any Greada Treaty with any other
Earth nation.

“They could abduct humans on a limited and periodic basis for the purpose of
medical examination and monitoring of our development; with the stipulation that
the humans would not be harmed, would be returned to their point of abduction,
would have no memory of the event, and that the alien nation would furnish
Majesty Twelve with a list of all human contacts and abductees on a regularly
scheduled basis. “[19]

Another whistleblower source for a Greada Treaty having been signed is Phil
Schneider, a former geological engineer that was employed by corporations
contracted to build underground bases. Schneider worked extensively on black
projects involving ETs. He revealed his own knowledge of the Greada Treaty in
the following:

“Back in 1954, under the Eisenhower administration, the federal government
decided to circumvent the Constitution of the United States and form a Treaty
with alien entities. It was called the 1954 Greada Treaty, which basically made
the agreement that the aliens involved could take a few cows and test their
implanting techniques on a few human beings, but that they had to give details
about the people involved.” [20]

Schneider’s knowledge of the Greada Treaty would have come from his
familiarity with a range of compartmentalized black projects and interaction
with other personnel working with ETs. Yet another whistleblower source for an
agreement being signed is Dr Michael Wolf, who claims to have served on various
policy-making committees responsible for extraterrestrial affairs for
twenty-five years. [21] He claims that the Eisenhower administration entered
into the Treaty with an ET race and that this Greada Treaty was never ratified
as Constitutionally required. [22]

Significantly, a number of whistleblowers argue that the Greada Treaty that
was signed involved some compulsion on the part of the ETs. Don Phillips is a
former Air force serviceman and employee on clandestine aviation projects
testified having seen documents describing the meeting between President
Eisenhower and ETs, and the background to a subsequent agreement:

We have records from 1954 that were meetings between our own leaders of this
country and ET’s here in California. And, as I understand it from the written
documentation, we were asked if we would allow them to be here and do research.
I have read that our reply was well, how can we stop you? You are so advanced.
And I will say by this camera and this sound, that it was President Eisenhower
that had this meeting.” [23]

Col Phillip Corso, a highly decorated officer that served in Eisenhower’s
National Security Council alluded to the Greada Treaty signed by the Eisenhower
administration with ETs in his memoirs. He wrote:

“We had negotiated a kind of surrender with them [ETs] as long as we couldn’t
fight them. They dictated the terms because they knew what we most feared was
disclosure.” [24]

Corso’s claim of a ‘negotiated surrender’ suggests that some sort of
agreement or ‘Treaty’ was reached which he was not happy with.

—–What Do We Know of the Grey ETs that signed the Greada

According to Cooper, the Grey ETs signing the Greada Treaty were not

“By 1955 it became obvious that the aliens had deceived Eisenhower and had
broken the Greada Treaty…. It was suspected that the aliens were not
submitting a complete list of human contacts and abductees to the Majesty Twelve
and it was suspected that not all abductees had been returned. “[25]

Similarly, Lear argued that the Grey ETs quickly broke the Greada Treaty and
could not be trusted:

“… a deal was struck that in exchange for advanced technology from the
aliens we would allow them to abduct a very small number of persons and we would
periodically be given a list of those persons abducted. We got something less
than the technology we bargained for and found the abductions exceeded by a
millionfold than what we had naively agreed to.” [26]

Other whistleblowers also suggested that the ETs who signed the Treaty with
Eisenhower couldn’t be trusted. Schneider claimed that despite the Greada
Treaty’s provisions on the number of humans who would be ‘abducted’ for
experiments, “the aliens altered the bargain until they decided they wouldn’t
abide by it at all.” [27]

As mentioned earlier, Col Phillip Corso similarly believed that ETs [with
whom] Eisenhower’s administration entered into agreements couldn’t be trusted.
Corso believed these forced a ‘negotiated surrender’ suggesting an ET agenda
that was suspect. While General Douglas MacArthur didn’t directly mention any
government Treaty with ETs, he gave a famous warning in October 1955 suggesting
that some ET presence existed that threatened human sovereignty:

“You now face a new world, a world of change. We speak in strange terms, of
harnessing the cosmic energy, of ultimate conflict between a united human race
and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy. . . . The nations of the
world will have to unite, for the next war will be an interplanetary war. The
nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people
from other planets.” [28]

MacArthur may well have been alluding to the same ETs that Corso, Cooper and
Lear believed had entered into an agreement with the Eisenhower administration.
Significantly, reports of contacts with ETs began to change once the alleged
Greada Treaty began to be implemented. The friendly ‘space brothers’ reports
involving contactees of the 1950s changed as reports of abductions began to
emerge after the first recorded case in 1961 involving Barney and Betty Hill:

Another apparent pattern that has occurred in Ufology is the dominance of the
space brothers in the 1950’s who were kind, interacted with people who became
known as contactees, and took people for rides in their space crafts. This
pattern changed dramatically with the abduction of Betty and Barney Hill in the
early 1960’s. The space brother human types of the 1950’s seemed to fade away,
and they were replaced in the UFO literature with another type of alien. In the
early sixties the first abduction of the Hills began a new pattern where the
aliens were grey “evil” aliens who would abduct people against their will and
perform medical procedures on them. There were, as far as this author is aware
no confirmed cases of “classic” abductions in the 1950’s. Unlike the “good”
space brothers of the 1950’s these Grey aliens were described by all, who were
unfortunate enough to have met with them, as being distant and without
emotions.” [29]

According to Wolf, the ETs were Greys from the fourth planet of the star
system Zeta Reticulum, while Cooper claims they were tall Greys from Betelgeuse,
Orion. Wolf’s and Cooper’s differing versions likely reflect a close
relationship between Greys from Rigel and Betelguese, and that more than one
species of ETs may have been covered in the Greada Treaty. Wolf has described
the Greys as having positive motivations in regard to their presence on Earth,
but have been inhibited and targeted by rogue elements in the US military. [30]
Similarly, Robert Dean believes that ETs visiting Earth are friendly. [31] This
contrasts with the testimonies of Cooper, Lear, Schneider, Corso and arguably
even MacArthur over the true motivations of Greys. It is worth repeating Gerald
Light’s claim of a “terrific conflict between the various ‘authorities'” on
whether to inform the general public or not. It is likely that these differing
perspectives on the motivations of the Greys reflected an uncertainty that has
continued to intensely divide policy makers up to the present on how to best
respond to the extraterrestrial presence and what to tell the general public.

—–Maintaining Secrecy and Witness Credibility—–

The uncertainty over the motivations and behavior of the Grey ETs appears to
have played a large role in the government decision not to disclose ETs’
presence and the Greada Treaty Eisenhower signed with them. The following
passage from an ‘alleged official document’ leaked to UFO researchers describes
the official secrecy policy adopted in April 1954, two months after Eisenhower
had ‘First Contact’ with ETs who were spurned by the Eisenhower administration:

“Any encounter with entities known to be of extra-terrestrial origin is to be
considered to be a matter of national security and therefore classified TOP
SECRET. Under no circumstances is the general public or the public press to
learn of the existence of these entities. The official government policy is that
such creatures do not exist, and that no agency of the federal government is now
engaged in any study of ETs or their artifacts. Any deviation from this stated
policy is absolutely forbidden. “[33] [Lies, lies and more lies–ed.]

Penalties for disclosing classified information concerning ETs are quite
severe. In December 1953, the Joint Chiefs of Staff issued Army-Navy-Air Force
publication 146 that made the unauthorized release of information concerning
UFOs a crime under the Espionage Act, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and
a $10,000 fine. [34] According to Robert Dean, this draconian penalty is what
prevents most former military servicemen from coming forward to disclose
information. [35]

The strategies for dealing with those former servicemen, corporate employees
or witnesses brave or ‘foolish’ enough to come forward to reveal classified
information is to intimidate, silence, eliminate or discredit these individuals.
This policy involves such strategies as removing all public records of former
military service men or corporate employees, forcing individuals to make
retractions, deliberately distorting statements of individuals, or discrediting
individuals. Bob Lazar, for example, claimed to be a former physicist employed
with reverse engineering extraterrestrial craft. He described the disappearance
of all his university and public records indicating how military-intelligence
agencies actively discredit whistleblowers. [36]

In cases of witnesses cited so far–Cooper, Schneider, Lear, Wolf–all have
been subjected to some or all of these strategies, thereby making it difficult
for anyone to reach firm conclusions about their testimonies. Since the creation
of controversy, uncertainty, and confusion is the modus operandi of
military-intelligence agencies in maintaining secrecy of the extraterrestrial
presence, then the testimonies of former officials/employees/witnesses need to
be considered on their merits. While issues of credibility, credentials,
dis-information are important in the study of the extraterrestrial presence, a
rigorous methodology for dealing with the efforts of military-intelligence
agencies to discredit, intimidate or create controversy around particular
witnesses, has yet to be developed.

For example, numerous efforts to discredit Cooper in particular by referring
to inconsistencies in his statements, retractions, egregious behavior and stated
positions, may be due in part or in whole to the policy of military-intelligence
officials to discredit and/or intimidate Cooper from leaking classified
information that he may very well have witnessed in his official capacities.
Since Cooper’s military record does indicate he did serve in an official
capacity on the briefing team of the Commander of the Pacific Fleet, it is most
likely that much of his testimony is credible. Whatever inaccuracies exist in
terms of his recollections of the timing of meetings between the Eisenhower
administration and ETs may either have been due to memory lapses or perhaps
deliberately introduced as a self-protective mechanism.

It has been pointed out by some ‘whistleblowers’ that making retractions or
sowing inaccuracies in testimonies is sometimes essential in disseminating
information without being physically harmed. [37] The controversial Cooper had
been subjected to undoubtedly the longest and most intense military-intelligence
efforts to discredit or intimidate any whistleblower revealing classified
information. [until they finally killed him in 2001].

The non-disclosure policy developed for the ET presence is most likely due to
a profound policy dilemma on the part of responsible national security
officials. This dilemma comes from uncertainty over what the true benefits of
the purported 1954 Greada Treaty were, and what the consequences of the Treaty
would be. While the signing of the Greada Treaty provided US national security
agencies an opportunity to study ET technologies, and to observe the ET
biological program with abducted civilians, it appeared the Treaty was not as
beneficial as was first thought due to excessive abductions of US civilians.

The subsequent behavior of Greys in their interactions with US national
security agencies was the most likely reason for deferring a decision to release
news of the Greada Treaty and the ET presence to the global public. According to
Lights’ testimony, Eisenhower had indicated to those present on February 20-21,
1954, that an announcement would be made soon after the First Contact event.
Since this didn’t occur, and the Greada Treaty was eventually signed with a
different group of ETs–the Greys–this suggested that the national security
agencies were deeply divided over the wisdom of disclosing this information, and
alarmed by the possible public reaction to the Grey activities.

At his farewell speech in 1961, President Eisenhower was possibly alluding to
the growing power of national security agencies that dealt with the
extraterrestrial presence and were gaining great power as a result of the
dilemma over what to do with the ET presence:

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of
unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial
complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and
will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our
liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an
alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge
industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and
goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together. ”

If the President was dissatisfied with the non-disclosure of the ET presence,
then his speech was indicating that the responsible national security agencies
were both dominating public policy and taking a ‘hard-line approach’ that was
inconsistent with American democratic ideals.

In the subsequent decades, it appears that on a number of occasions, official
disclosure was seriously contemplated. For example, Robert Emenegger and Allan
Sandler claimed they were approached by the Pentagon in 1972 to produce an
officially sanctioned video that would be used for official public disclosure of
the ET presence. When the offer was later withdrawn, the reason given was that
the time was no longer suitable due to the Watergate Scandal. While it is
undoubtedly true that political factors would impact on making a formal
disclosure announcement, it is more likely the case that non-disclosure was
caused by lack of clarity over what the true motivations of the ETs were, and
the impact an announcement would have on ET activities. Making any announcement
of the ET presence would naturally have lead to questions concerning their
motivations and activities. If officials couldn’t agree on appropriate answers,
they most likely decided that it was better to defer disclosure rather than
threaten national security by making inaccurate announcements.

The precise nature of ET abductions and medical programs implemented by Greys
has been extensively researched and discussed by a number of UFO researchers.
Their conclusions vary widely, suggesting that the deep disagreement among
private UFO researchers over the motivations and activities of the Greys very
likely mirrors of official government sources. [38] As long as such uncertainty
continues, it appears that disclosure may continue to be deferred until key
global events no longer makes the non-disclosure policy viable.


An examination of the evidence presented in this paper in terms of
whistleblower or witness testimonies raises tremendous problems in terms of
coming to a conclusive opinion over:

  • first, the truth of the alleged ‘First Contact’ meeting between Eisenhower
    and ETs;
  • secondly, claims of more than one set of ETss meeting with the Eisenhower
    administration; and
  • third, the various policy issues that arise from the meetings and subsequent
    Greada Treaty that was allegedly signed.–not to mention–
  • fourth, the life outcomes that have occurred for humanity in terms of
    perceived safety and for ETs in terms of viability on this planet and
    desirability of their continued presence. Are they an invading force, or are
    they a cooperative force? After 50 years, we ought to be able to see and judge
    for ourselves, what have ETs wrought, here?Most perplexing is how to view the testimonies of whistleblowers who appear
    sincere, positively motivated and have plausible stories, yet are plagued by
    controversy, allegations of fraud, inconsistency and other irregularities. Due
    to the official secrecy policy adopted towards the extraterrestrial presence, it
    may be concluded that some if not most of the controversy surrounding these
    individuals has been caused by military-intelligence agencies intent on
    discrediting whistleblower or witness testimonies. [But at this point, why is
    our data still limited to second-hand sources?–ed]

    While there continues to be uncertainty caused by the controversy surrounding
    whistleblower testimonies and the role of military-intelligence agencies in
    generating this controversy, the bulk of evidence points to a ‘First Contact’
    meeting having occurred during Eisenhower’s Palm Spring vacation on February
    20-21, 1954. The testimonies suggest that ETs in the First Contact event, a race
    of tall ‘Nordics’ were spurned due to their reluctance to provide advanced
    technology in an agreement. A subsequent meeting and Greada Treaty was then
    signed with a different group of ETs, commonly called Greys, who did not have
    the same reluctance in exchanging their technology as part of an agreement.

    Most available evidence that has found its way into the public arena suggests
    that the ET race with whom the Greada Treaty was signed–the Greys–are at best
    an enigma and at worst simply untrustworthy in their treatment of abducted
    civilians. The subsequent shift in witness reports from friendly ET ‘contacts’
    to disturbing ‘abductions’, suggest that the Eisenhower administration had
    signed a Treaty with ETs whose motivations and activities are an enigma as far
    as the general public interest is concerned. The activities of the Grey ETs
    apparently continues to raise uncertainty for US national security agencies in
    terms of an appropriate strategic response. [39] On the contrary, the friendly
    Nordic ‘space brothers’ faded from the scene since the Eisenhower administration
    saw them as not sufficiently motivated to serve the technological and strategic
    goals of US national security agencies.

    The question of when disclosure of the Greada Treaty signed by Eisenhower and
    of the ET presence might occur is one that has long been anticipated. A recent
    economic event might be a signal that some form of disclosure is possible in the
    near future. According to Craig Copetas, Bloomberg News correspondent in Paris,
    the World Economic Forum at Davos Switzerland from January 21-25, 2004,
    discussed ETs at one or more closed sessions. In a story published on January
    21, Copetas claimed that “forum officials maintain their five-day program on
    Partnering for Security and Prosperity requires an unambiguous examination of ET
    presence on Earth.” [40] The Davos Forum is a gauge for trends in the global
    economy and discusses various topics that have a long term effect on business.
    The inclusion of conspiracy theories of an ET presence and technologies on the
    formal agenda has significance well beyond the hypothetical nature of the
    discussion. Various national governments may well be tacitly letting the word
    out to their ‘friends in the business community’, that they had better start
    exploring how a future disclosure of an ET presence and technologies will
    influence the business world. Given the discussion at Davos on January 21, 2004,
    of a possible ET, and the forthcoming 50th anniversary of Eisenhower’s Greada
    Treaty on February 20-21, it might be speculated that a disclosure announcement
    may soon be made.

    As we approach the 50th anniversary of a First Contact meeting between the US
    and an ET races, we must do so with wonder at the awesome nature of this
    occasion. At the same time, we must do whatever necessary to make public the
    full details of the meeting. The apparent spurning of what appears to be a
    principled ET race that rejected technology transfers while dangerous weapons
    programs were in place in the US and elsewhere on the planet. The subsequent
    signing of a Greada Treaty at a later date with an ET race willing to trade
    technology in exchange for ‘limited medical experiments’ with civilians will
    surely go down in history as a deeply significant event whose effects continues
    to reverberate through human society. Finally, we must be alert to the mounting
    evidence that while a Greada Treaty was signed after the 1954 ‘First Contact’
    event, it may well have been with the ‘wrong ETs’, and that this might adversely
    impact on humanity if not dealt with in an open, transparent and truthful
    manner. We live on the verge of a bold new future with many uncertainties over
    the secrecy surrounding the ET presence, what best prepares us as this
    information enters into the public arena are our faith, democratic values, and
    dedication to truth.
