Famous UFO Quotes By Presidents, Politicians, Military Officers And Astronauts

Do UFOs and aliens exist? According to some of the most famous people in American history they do. Presidents, prominent politicians, top ranking military officers and leading astronauts have all come right out and said that UFOs exist and that the U.S. government knows about it. So why is there still such secrecy about UFOs? Is there not such a large body of evidence for the existence of UFOs at this point that it is pretty much obvious to everyone by now? Well, apparently the U.S. government still wants to keep a lid on this thing. At least for the moment. So will that change someday? Most certainly it will. In fact, it is very likely to occur in our lifetimes. But for now we’ll just have to keep waiting for full disclosure. Meanwhile, the following are some famous UFO quotes by presidents, politicians, military officers and astronauts…..

“I can assure you that, given they exist, these flying saucers are made by no power on this Earth.”
-President Harry S. Truman, 4 April 1950, at a press conference.

“While working under President Eisenhower,I discovered that Eisenhower had a keen interest in UFOs, but that he came to realize that he had lost control of the subject”.
-Brigadier General Steven Lovekin

“The US Airforce assures me that UFO’s pose no threat to National Security.”
-President John F. Kennedy

“We must insist upon full access to disks recovered. For instance, in the LA case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination.”
-J. Edgar Hoover

“I certainly believe in aliens in space, and that they are indeed visiting our planet. They may not look like us, but I have very strong feelings that they have advanced beyond our mental capabilities.”
-Senator Barry Goldwater (1965)

“I’m not at liberty to discuss the governments knowledge of extraterrestrial UFO’s at this time. I am still personally being briefed on the subject!”
-President Richard M. Nixon

“In the firm belief that the American public deserves a better explanation than that thus far given by the Air Force, I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomena. I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs, and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment of the subject.”
-President Gerald Ford (during his years as a US Congressman).

It was the darndest thing I’ve ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colors and it was about the size of the Moon. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing’s for sure, I’ll never make fun of people who say they’ve seen unidentified objects in the sky.
-President Jimmy Carter

“I looked out the window and saw this white light.It was zigzagging around. I went up to the pilot and said,Have you ever seen anything like that? He was shocked and he said, “Nope.” And I said to him: “Let’s follow it!” We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light.We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens. When I got off the plane I told Nancy all about it.”
-President Ronald Reagen (Describing his 1974 UFO encounter to veteran newsman Norman C. Miller, then Washington bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal.)

“The phenomenon of UFOs does exist, and it must be treated seriously.”
-Mikhail Gorbachev

“The UFO phenomenon being reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious”
-General Nathan Twining Chairman, Joint chiefs of staff, 1955-1958

“For thirty years, I’ve held that image in my mind. What I saw was a circular object that looked like two pie plates put on top of each other with a golf ball on top. It was a classic flying saucer,and it shot a beam of something at our warhead”
-U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Robert M. Jacobs

“I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets which obviously are a little more technically advanced than we are here on Earth.”
-Colonel L. Gordon Cooper (Mercury 9,Gemini-5 Astronaut)

“After the plane from Roswell arrived with the material I asked the base commander to personally transport it in a B-26 to Major General McMullen in Washington DC.  The entire operation was conducted under strictest secrecy.  The weather balloon explanation for the material was a cover story to divert the attention of the press”.
-Brigadier General Thomas Dubose
Commanding Officer of Wright Patterson Air Force Base
Affadavit 09/16/01

“Mission control, We have a UFO pacing our position, request instructions!”
-Astronaut Cady Coleman NASA transmission shuttle mission STS-73

“We heard the material was coming to Wright Field. It was brought into our material evaluation labs. I don’t know how it arrived but the boys who tested it said it was very unusual”.
-Brigadier General Arthur E. Exon

“I speak from three years of detailed, personal research involving interviews with more than five hundred witnesses in selected UFO cases,chiefly in the United States.  In my opinion the UFO problem,far from being the ‘nonsense problem’ it has been labelled by many scientists,constitutes an area of extraordinary scientific interest”.
-Dr. James McDonald
Professor of Atmospheric Sciences
Quoted in “UFOs – a Scientific debate”

“I’ve been asked about UFO’s and I’ve said publicly I thought they were somebody else, some other civilization.”
-Commander Eugene Cernan, Commanded the Apollo 17 Mission. (LA TIMES, 1973)

“It is time for the truth to be brought out… Behind the scenes high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense…. I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about unidentified flying objects.”
-Former CIA Director Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, signed statement to Congress, August 22, 1960

“Blue Book was now under direct orders to debunk…I remember the conversations around the conference table in which it was suggested that Walt Disney or some other educational cartoon producer be enlisted in the debunking process”.
-Dr. J Allen Hyneck
Scientific Consultant to Blue Book

“We have contact with alien cultures.”
-Astronaut Dr. Brian O’leary

“The Air Force has never denied the possibility that interplanetary spacecraft exist.  There are many people in the Air Force who believe in UFOs”.
-USAF Press Liason Albert M Chop

“In my official status, I cannot comment on ET contact. However, personally, I can assure you, we are not alone!”
-Charles J. Camarda(Ph.D.) NASA Astronaut

“The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States Government, rating even higher than the H Bomb.  Flying saucers exist.  Their Modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by by a small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush.”
-Wilbert Smith in a top secret Canadian Government Memorandum,
21st November 1950

“They came up with a table of pictures of all the shapes of UFOs that have ever been recorded -about fifty …The study of UFOs may reveal some new forms of energy to us,or at least bring us closer to a solution.”
-General Vasily Alexeyev
Russian Air Force -Space Communications Centre.

“It isn’t a question of whether or not flying saucers exist.  The question is what are they and who do they belong to?”
-George Flier
Air Force Intelligence Officer 1958 -1978

“There are some definite flight type characteristics that are seen now that I would say represent genuine UFOs…ie: instant acceleration; instant stop; vertical acceleration -up into the air and down to the ground; reverses in direction; right angle turns -all in silence -multiple objects sometimes separating and then going back into each other.  They are classic,what I would call,genuine UFO characteristics -things that we can not do in a conventional sense”.
-British Detective Constable Gary Heseltine of the Police UFO Reporting Organization

“Of course it is possible that UFO’s really do contain aliens as many people believe, and the Government is hushing it up.”
-Professor Stephen Hawking

“Let there be no doubt. Alien technology harvested from the infamous saucer crash in Roswell, N.Mex., in July 1947 led directly to the development of the integrated circuit chip, laser and fiber optic technologies, Particle beams, Electromagnetic propulsion systems, Depleted uranium projectiles, Stealth capabilities, and many others! How do I know? I was in charge! (A matter of public record)I think the kids on this planet are wise to the truth, and I think we ought to give it to them. I think they deserve it.”
-Colonel Philip Corso Army Intelligence officer, former head of the Foreign Technology at the U.S. Army’s Research and Development department at the Pentagon and former director of intelligence on President Eisenhower’s White House National Security Staff

“With control of the universe at stake, a crash program is imperative.We produced the A-bomb, under the huge Manhattan Project, in an amazingly short time. The needs, the urgency today are even greater. The Air Force should end UFO secrecy, give the facts to scientists,the public, to Congress. Once the people realize the truth, they would back, even demand a crash program…for this is one race we dare not lose.”
-Major Donald E Keyhoe USMC, Director NICAP 1953

“All Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin – flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence.”
-Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA Communications Systems

“UFO sightings are now so common, the military doesn’t have time to worry about them – so they screen them out. The major defense systems have UFO filters built into them, and when a UFO appears, they simply ignore it.”
-Lee Katchen (former atmospheric physicist with NASA)

“We all know that UFOs are real. All we need to ask is where do they come from, and what do they want?”
-Apollo 14 Astronaut Capt. Edgar Mitchell

    WOW incredible Post! I think more on this needs to be said… those are great sources

  • Pingback: Shocking UFO Quotes From U.S. Presidents And Astronauts | AboutSpace.info()

  • Ian Grantham

    Just one lil prob with these posts – BOLLOCKS! The dont really stand up to scrutiny. Think for a moment, quotes from peopele actually “in charge” of ??? Well why do these people just say they are real and not elaborate if they know so much? Just think about it for bit – you have these posts that say they are on record for saying they do exist and THEN they dont say anything about them – you really think that is logical if they do exist and these people would like you to know? Would be really cool if they DID exist, but hey, once again, if they are that technically superior to us why would they even bother to show themselves, if they did wouldnt thy say HI? Go away, you’re ALL nuts!

  • Protonius

    Sorry, but, in my opinion, the above viewpoint posted by Mr. Grantham is flawed and therefore reaches an invalid conclusion. Why? His stated viewpoint excludes important relevant factors, such as the role that internal politics plays in regard to how a prominent individual (such as any of those named in the article) might publicly state one particular point of view, but then, once they’re in office and subject to the political and inter-agency pressures and power-struggles and the wheeling-and-dealing and the compartmentalization of authority and of information, that goes on “behind the scenes”, might then be persuaded, by the force of all those internal events, to publicly state a contradictory point of view or even to publicly ignore the subject altogether.

    Even when JFK became President, he stated in an interview soon thereafter that before becoming President, he’d thought that as President all he’d have to do would be to give an order and that the order would be followed — but, he then explained, having become President, he quickly found that giving an order was not at all the same as having the order be followed. And it illustrated the issue of how things in Government REALLY work.

    Think “power politics”, think “spheres of political influence”, think “spheres of control”. Unfortunately — depending upon one’s point-of-view — Truth and Objectivity and Full Sharing of All Relevant Information are not always the primary goal of those persons who, in whatever their bailiwick is, hold power or to SEEK to hold power.

  • lokimon

    as i look at aliens from a psychological viewpoint i see that from my past if anything ever happened that was especially traumatic i would block it out on my own, if i was an abductee presently i dont think i would want to remember the fear of the experience for some the fear is so great that maybe the aliens sneak around and suppress our memories of incidents for our own piece of mind?? i think its fitting though since we look at animals on this earth as dumb maybe the aliens view us in the same way :)

    Aliens we are, are the product of their experiments …

  • zach

    @ian grantham. I’m sooooo sick and tired of these skeptics. There are 1 BILLION stars in our galaxy. We know of over 1 BILLION galaxies, do the math. That is just what we know of so far. We find new galaxies every single day. But I guess you’re right we are the only fucking living creatures in this entire universe. If there was just one civilization out there that has been around just 1,000 years longer than we have the technological implications would be astounding. You people will never see outside of the box because you are too arrogant and small minded. It’s not only completely improbable that we are alone in this universe, it is damn near impossible!

  • cc

    I agree with Zach. I had been skeptical myself for the longest time but now that we are in the YouTube generation and people are posting videos of whatever these things are from their PHONES (and from all over the world), I now really wonder what is going on. Truly there is something there to be looked into, how could anyone look at these things and turn their backs to it? I would think even skeptics would at least want to debunk it, but the skeptics usually have even more ridiculous theories than believers!! “Answers that make even LESS sense than the original theory. We have to remember that science is amazing and we have only scratched the surface. It is entirely plausible that in the far far far future even our own humanity may be able to travel across galacies . At this point in time it is even being further studied whether or not Einstein was even right! Scientists have now studied Neutrinos, that are showing to be faster than the speed of light!! There is so much that we don’t know yet and have yet to discover! Why would anyone believe it to be so impossible for another race to be able to have that technology?

  • http://n/a One Who Knows

    Ian Grantham, sorry and no offense (or “offence” for you Brits) but the real “bullocks” is anyone who has fooled themselves into think that UFOs aren’t real. Indeed, they’re not only real but also out there en masse and sometimes in mind boggling sizes too.

    And to anyone who spouts off that “the public has the right to know”, etc., and that “they could handle it”, then FORGET THAT. Most people can’t even successfully run their own lives, or participate in mutually reciprocal and healthy mate relationships, so how in the hell could they handle THE BIGGEST NEWS FOR MANKIND EVER??? Please. There would be unprecedented mass panic, suicide, runs on banks, anarchy, violence, social order would break down, etc., and our ways of life would change forever. Do NOT make the mistake of judging what the world population would do based solely on what you would do. Or, better said, on what you THINK you would do.

    You obviously don’t understand the administrative or bureaucratic nature of modern government. Senators, House members, the President, 1 of 100000 of Colonels, or 100’s of chief’s of staff; 1 of 1000000 air force pilots; This isn’t even the tip of the iceberg.

    What is stunning to me is what is left out. Where are the quotes from members of the Military industrial complex? The tsunami of private firms that contribute technology, man power, intelligence, finance and a vast wealth of logistical support to militaries across the planet?

    Come on guys. Wake up. Read 20 history books by 20 different authors (preferably all “reputable” authors. … PHD’s, specialists with 20 years of experience; etc….) once you listen to them…. you quickly realize that they have many more doubts then any of us; if only because they have studied soo much more history then we have. One thing becomes clear; they are way more confused then we are.

    Keep on searching for and/or Find the truth? LoL.

    millions upon millions have tried over the centuries….

    look where that got us…

    live and let live…

  • Da Truth

    Wether you believe it or not, extraterrestrial life has made its way to our home. Wether this is a good or bad thing has yet to be revealed to the public. This “above top-secret” subject matter cannot be left to just our world leaders. This is a matter best shared with all the minds of this Earth. While we quarrel amongst ourselves over petty disputes, we leave ourselves vulnerable to what this great universe has to offer. If we continue down this path of ignorance and self destruction, there may well not be a world left to protect.

    We have now reached a time in our history where the choices of a few men have impacted the lives of every man, women, and child on our planet. While other entities have lost hope for humanity, mine remains firm. Through blood, sweat, and tears we have earned our place on this god given paradise we call Earth. Now, is the time we must band together as brothers and embrace the stars or parish and make fools of ourselves, our families, our friends, and our ancestors.

    Our future is left to each and everyone of us…
