Edgar Mitchell on UFOs at Press Conference - Famed astronaut calls on the US government to end its
embargo on truth about UFOs. Having grown up in Roswell, and having
talked to high military officials, Edgar Mitchell feels without a doubt
that ET/UFOs are real and that our the government is well aware of it.
Mitchell has publicly expressed his opinions that he is "90 percent sure that many of the thousands of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, recorded since the 1940s, belong to visitors from other planets" and that UFOs have been the "subject of disinformation in order to deflect attention and to create confusion so the truth doesn't come out".
Dateline NBC conducted an interview with Mitchell on April 19th, 1996, during which he discussed meeting with officials from three countries who claimed to have had personal encounters with extraterrestrials.
He offered his opinion that the evidence for such "alien" contact was "very strong" and "classified" by governments, who were covering up visitations and the existence of alien beings' bodies in places such as Roswell, New Mexico.
He further claimed that UFOs had provided "sonic engineering secrets" that were helpful to the U.S. government. Mitchell's book, The Way of the Explorer," discusses his journey into mysticism and space.
In 2004 he told the St. Petersburg Times that a "cabal of insiders" in the U.S. government were studying recovered alien bodies, and that this group had stopped briefing U.S. presidents after John F. Kennedy.
He said, "We all know that UFOs are real; now the question is, where they come from."
Edgar Mitchell UFO Interview on Kerrang Radio July 23rd, 2008
On July 23, 2008 Edgar Mitchell was interviewed on Kerrang Radio by Nick Margerrison.
Mitchell claimed the Roswell crash was real and that aliens have contacted humans several times, but that governments have hidden the truth for 60 years stating:
"I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we've been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real."
In reply, a spokesman for NASA stated, "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.
Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue."
In an interview with Fox News on July 25th, 2008, Mitchell clarified that his comments did not involve NASA, but quoted unnamed sources, since deceased, at Roswell who confided to him that the Roswell incident did involve an alien craft. Mitchell also claims to have subsequently received confirmation from an unnamed intelligence officer at the Pentagon.
