It’s a story that has circulated in and out of the UFO community for years: Did former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower have three meetings with extraterrestrials?
Or are all these conspiracy theorists just on another planet?
An ex-government consultant apparently says the story is true and that the
34th commander in chief chatted with aliens at a New Mexico air base.
No definitive proof has ever surfaced to confirm this president-meets-aliens tale, because frankly, if it had, the story would get a greater run than on the Weird World pages of a leading Phuket newspaper.
However, according to Timothy Good, Eisenhower and FBI officials arranged for the intergalactic summit at Holloman Air Force Base.
“Aliens have made both formal and informal contact with thousands of people throughout the world from all walks of life,” Good, an author, lecturer and former consultant to Congress and the Pentagon, said on Frank Skinner’s BBC2 program, Opinionated.
Good claims that governments of the world have had ongoing contacts with aliens over many years.
The story about Eisenhower’s close encounter of the very personal kind – where
he reportedly met with Nordic-looking aliens – supposedly unfolded while the president was vacationing in California in February 1954.
Whether or not the latest story is true, an interesting related side-story reared its head in 2010 when a retired New Hampshire state representative, Henry McElroy Jr., taped an intriguing video announcement in which he revealed seeing a secret briefing document intended for Eisenhower.
This document, according to McElroy, contained information that aliens were in America and that Eisenhower could meet with them.
“To the best of my memory, this brief was pervaded with a sense of hope, and it informed President Eisenhower of the continued presence of extraterrestrial beings here in the United States of America,” McElroy said on the video.
“The tone of the brief indicated to me that there was no need for concern, since these visitors were in no way causing any harm or had any intentions whatsoever of causing any disruption then or in the future,” he explained.
McElroy goes on to say that, although he couldn’t verify times or places where any meetings might have taken place between Eisenhower and “off-world astronauts”, he believed that there were such meetings.
In other words, he didn’t know when, where or why the meetings occurred, but he suspects they might have, somewhere, at some time, for some unknown reason, taken place, with an unknown outcome.
A compelling argument if ever there was one.
