“This is the end of the childhood of the Human Race,” said Dr. Steven Greer, a former emergency room physician from Charlottesville, Virginia, as he opened an extraordinary four-hour press conference at Washington, D.C.’s prestigious National Press Club. This was the culmination of a project that started in 1993, when Dr. Greer turned an interest in UFOs into an all-consuming research effort. He set out to identify, locate and interview top-secret military, government and other witnesses to UFO and Extraterrestrial events and to reveal our government’s response to them. It has been his mission for the past seven years to put together a case, so solid and irrefutable, that the truth of encounters with extraterrestrial vehicles and individuals could no longer be concealed from the public.
Greer pointedly presented witnesses with impeccable credentials, and only selected those with unassailable documentation and records to back them up. To date, several hundred such witnesses have been identified throughout the world. The witnesses came from every branch of the armed services, police, air traffic controllers, as well as top government agencies like the NRO, DIA, CIA and NASA. They spoke with gravity, often with emotion, and revealed incident after incident of astonishing encounters with UFOs in the air, downed UFOs, dozens of different types of bodies of ETs, “flying saucers” created in our own military and civilian industries using technology reverse-engineered from ET craft, and technology from these sources that has been commercially exploited for military and space programs and for private gain. At the time of each incident, the individuals were debriefed and given to understand, both implicitly and by direct order, that they saw nothing; “it” never happened; or it was the result of an explainable, terrestrial phenomenon. They were also pointedly reminded that they were bound by the Official Secrets Act.
The methods used to enforce these cover-ups ranged from threats of ridicule and loss of job or prospects to outright violence and “disappearance.” The twenty witnesses who stood up in the press conference had clearly decided that the risks and cost to humanity from the path the governments were following was too great to remain silent any more. Each ended his or her testimony with the solemn sentence, “Everything I have said is true, and I am ready to testify to that effect before Congress.”
I will not go into the individual testimonies here, since the entire press conference is available on the Internet until November 9th, both in audio and video format, at www.connectlive.com/events/disclosureproject. The video of the press conference is available for purchase, and Dr. Greer has published a 500-page briefing document that contains excerpts of these historic testimonies.
The evidence and testimonies presented in the press conference and in the transcripts of hundreds of hours of tape make a very strong case for the fact that:
- We are indeed being visited by advanced extraterrestrial civilizations and have been for some time;
- This is the most classified, compartmented program within the US and many other countries;
- Those projects have, as warned in 1961 by President Eisenhower, escaped legal oversight and control in the US, the UK and elsewhere;
- Advanced spacecraft of extraterrestrial origin, called extraterrestrial vehicles (ETVs) by some intelligence agencies, have been downed, retrieved and studied since at least the 1940s and possibly as early as the 1930s;
- Significant technological breakthroughs in energy generation and propulsion have resulted from the study of these objects (and from related human innovations dating as far back as the time of Nicola Tesla) and that these technologies utilize a new physics not requiring the burning of fossil fuels or ionizing radiating to generate vast amounts of energy;
- Classified, above top-secret projects possess fully operational anti-gravity propulsion devices and new energy generation systems that, if declassified and put to peaceful uses, would empower a new human civilization without want, poverty or environmental damage.
If one accepts that the evidence is clear and overwhelming, the greatest question is why has the UFO/ET subject been officially denied for over 50 years?
In the war years of the 1930s and 1940s it was understandable that there could have been concern about public morale and panic. And later, in the climate of the Cold War it was not surprising that paranoia reigned and continues to dominate geo-politics. But, according to the unfolding testimony, from the late 1940s through the early 1950s, direct study and reverse-engineering quickly showed that these objects were using different laws of physics and highly advanced technologies. Some of these technologies were patented and generated great wealth for a favored few. Other technologies that threatened the sources of wealth of those in power were ruthlessly suppressed.
Such a cloak of secrecy and intimidation was drawn around these projects that even Presidents, Prime Ministers and top military men were excluded. Direct witness testimony reveals that Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Carter and Clinton were frustrated in their attempts to penetrate such projects. Along with other senior elected and appointed leaders, they were confronted with (as Eisenhower called it) “a sophisticated military-industrial complex with labyrinthine compartmented projects which were more and more out of their control and oversight.”
According to Dr. Greer, “The compartmentalization of the project dealing with UFOs was exponentially increased by the early 1950s when it was realized what it was that these covert projects actually had: Devices displaying physics and energy systems which – if disclosed – would forever alter life on Earth.”
It is clear that the disclosure of the existence of ETs, would inevitably bring with it disclosures of these new technologies, which the oligarchy wanted to avoid at all costs. They no doubt justified the imposed secrecy on the basis that the disclosure of the ET technologies would sweep away the entire energy and technological infrastructure of the planet and cause great chaos. More importantly, it would also change the economic and geo-political power structure of the planet. In sum, it was wholly about power in every sense of the word.
The implications of this are immense. Consider that we have in our hands a technology that enables energy generation from the so-called zero point field. Every home, business, factory and vehicle could have its own source of power. There would be no need for oil, gas, coal, nuclear plants or the internal combustion engine, and no global warming or atmospheric pollution.
The Earth’s population has reached 6 billion, and our oil reserves are not expected to last 50 more years. In any event, the Earth’s ecosystem could probably not withstand 50 more years of abuse. The risks to humanity of permanent damage and collapse of the ecosystem are greater than from disclosure, yet the secrecy continues.
Greer calls for urgent Congressional, White House and UN action to allow any and all witnesses to testify under oath so that a full, honest and open disclosure may occur this year, 2001, including witnesses with high level security clearances. A US Presidential Executive Order would be needed to protect these military, government, and other witnesses, and to declassify secret projects and their related technologies.
There is clearly a military mindset in the halls of power, and it is convenient to justify witholding the new technologies on the grounds of national security. The testimony indicates that extraterrestrial civilizations are very concerned about nuclear and space-based weapons systems, and human warfare. One of the witnesses claimed that the ET’s neutralized the firing mechanisms of missiles sent against them, as well as a nuclear device launched at the moon as part of a testing program. He likened the Star Wars project to going after Genghis Khan with a firecracker.
The world community needs to research and develop diplomatic programs and protocols, laws and treaties to address this issue and to interface with these civilizations in a manner that is peaceful, non-violent and mutually beneficial.
Dr. Greer has come out with a serious and high profile publicity campaign, to enlist public opinion and to pressure the US Congress:
- To hold open, secrecy-free hearings on the UFO / Extraterrestrial presence on and around Earth.
- To hold open hearings on advanced energy and propulsion systems related to the subject that, when publicly released, will provide solutions to global environmental and other challenges.
- To enact legislation which will ban all space-based weapons.
- To enact comprehensive legislation to research, develop and explore space peacefully and cooperatively with all cultures on Earth and in space.
In asking for all citizens to unite and demand a response from their elected representatives, Dr. Greer states, “The future of humanity, which has been delayed and hijacked for the past 50 years, cannot be hijacked for 50 more. For we do not have 50 more years – the Earth’s ecosystem will collapse before then. There are no easy choices. But there is one right one. Will you help us make it?”
