My colleague, retired Army Colonel Karl Nell said with 100% certainty that the world is being visited by higher level, non-human intelligence (NHI). I know he is correct with complete certainty.

This is technology we’re still trying to learn about, and it could give us an advantage in any military conflict. So that’s a good reason to not disclose the nature of the technology. We don’t want to release and disclose all of the technology we have recovered. However, I think it’s about time that we do disclose we are in contact with non-human intelligence. That’s what needs to be put out there in the public.

There is a lot of unidentified aerial phenomena out there. That’s true. And they’ve got pilot reports, there’s various other sensors out there, and some of it is difficult to explain… some [UAP are] really kind of weird and unexplainable.

His [Grusch] assertion concerning the existence of a terrestrial arms race occurring sub-rosa over the past eighty years focused on reverse engineering technologies of unknown origin is fundamentally correct, as is the indisputable realization that at least some of these technologies of unknown origin derive from non-human intelligence.

This thing was going berserk, like making turns. It is incredible the amount of g-forces that it would have put on a human. It made a maneuver like they were chasing it straight on, it was going with them, then this thing stopped turning, just gone. In an instant. The [FLIR] video you see now, that’s just a small snippet in the beginning of the whole video.

[It went] right back up to 28,000 feet… At that point you’ve got your other aircraft launching off the carrier, and all these other intercepts were happening. Before I knew it, I had these objects raining out of the sky. Choo choo choo choo choo, it was raining UFOs. I am telling you it was the most humbling experience of my life.

It was there… then it rifled out of sight in a split second. It was as if the object was shot out of a rifle. There was no gradual acceleration or spooling up period, it just shot out of sight immediately. I have never seen anything like it before or since. No human could have withstood that kind of acceleration.

[The Aegis SPY-1 radar] eliminated the possibility that it could have been friendly aircraft of some kind, enemy aircraft of some kind. Nothing really fit… I was just chomping at the bit. I really wanted to intercept these things… All of a sudden this object drops 28,000 feet down to the surface, and I figured it out later, it was 0.78 seconds. [24,000 miles per hour, more than 30x speed of sound]. Captain said ok let’s go intercept one and I said hell yeah.

We were off the coast of San Diego, USS Nimitz carrier strike group was getting ready to go on deployment. At around the evening of the tenth of November 2004, all these contacts were popping up on my radar coverage right off Catalina Island right by Los Angeles. At first there were ten or twelve objects. Watching them on the display was like watching snow fall from the sky. Their relative position didn’t change from each other moving real slow, 28,000 feet at 100 knots, which is extremely weird. Usually things that high don’t travel that slowly because they’ll fall out of the sky…

Probably what we saw [in 1952 over Washington, DC] was from somewhere else. Look the Air Force is a very deadly being when it comes to intercepting an unknown. If it proves hostile we are going to shoot it down. Other than that, no problem.

The SPY [radar] guys came down and said ‘Oh we got clutter’… Asked me to reset all the computer systems. Brought it all back up and lo and behold, they’re there still. Then we started getting confirmation from the other ships that they were seeing it too. We were just seeing three tracks. Sometimes they were only going a couple hundred knots, sometimes they were stationary, sometimes they were going really fast. The way they went around us, it looked like they were just monitoring us.

On April 11, 1980 at 7:15 am…The squad commander… ordered me to take off … to intercept the balloon before it got any closer to our base… Zeroing in on the balloon… I shot a burst of sixty-four 30mm shells, which created a cone-shaped ‘wall of fire’ that would normally obliterate anything in its path… but nothing happened. Then suddenly the object began to ascend very rapidly and head away from the base… I initiated a chase… at a speed of 600 mph and the ‘balloon’ remained about 1,600 feet in front of me… [up to] 36,000 feet. It came to a sudden stop and forced me to veer to the side… It eluded my attack three times, each time at the very last moment. We reached an altitude of 63,000 feet and suddenly the thing stopped completely and remained stationary… I got as close as about 300 feet from it. I was startled to see that the ‘balloon’ was not a balloon at all. It was an object that measured about 35 feet in diameter… It lacked all the typical components of aircraft. It had no wings, propulsion jets, exhausts, windows, antennae, and so forth. It had no visible propulsion system. At that moment, I realized this was not a spying device but a UFO, something totally unknown… Suddenly, I was afraid.

Comandante, Peruvian Air Force

On the morning of Number 2, 1982… I noticed… another ‘aircraft’. It didn’t have wings and it didn’t have a tail, only a cockpit! It was an oval shape. What kind of airplane could that be?… I flew directly to a point along the trajectory of its elliptical course. It came toward me and flew right over me, on top of my aircraft, and stopped there, like a helicopter landing but much, much faster, breaking all the rules of aerodynamics. It was very close to my plane, only about 15 feet. I was astonished. I closed my eyes and I froze at this moment without reacting. There was no impact… It then flew off in a flash… One of the other pilots saw the whole thing… Right after landing, all three of us filed detailed, independent written reports about the incident.

— Julio Miguel Guerra
Captain, Portuguese Air Force

Hundreds of people [in 1989] saw a majestic triangular craft with a span of approximately 120 feet, powerful beaming spotlights, moving very slowly without making any significant noise, but, in several cases, accelerating to very high speeds. [In] the following days and months, many more sightings would follow… On one occasion two F-16s registered changes in speed and altitude which were well outside the performance envelope of existing aircraft.

— Wilfred De Brouwer
Deputy Chief of Staff, Major General Belgian Air Force

The crafts performed in ways not possible by known technology. They were able to remain stationary and hover, even in unusual positions such as vertical and/or banking at 45 degrees or more. They could fly at slow speeds and accelerate extremely fast, faster than any known aircraft, and they remained silent, or made only a very slight noise, even when hovering or accelerating.

— Wilfred De Brouwer
Deputy Chief of Staff, Major General Belgian Air Force

I was the senior security officer in charge of Woodbridge base security [Rendlesham]… I held a top-secret US and NATO security clearance… It maneuvered through the trees and shot off at an unbelievable rate of speed. It was gone in the blink of an eye. In my logbook, which I still have, I wrote ‘Speed Impossible.’ I subsequently learned that other personnel based at Bentwaters and Woodbridge, all trained observers, had witnessed this takeoff.

1998

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 fibre optic technologies, particle beams, electromagnetic propulsion systems, depleted uranium projectiles, stealth capabilities, and many others.

How do I know? I was in charge! 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.

1993

There was so much [debris at Roswell]. It was scattered over such a vast area [12 football fields]. We found a piece of metal, about a foot and a half or two feet wide, about two to three feet long, felt like it had nothing in your hands. It wasn’t any thicker than the foil out of a pack of cigarettes. The thing that got me is that you couldn’t even bend it, you couldn’t dent it, even a sledge hammer would bounce off of it… All I could do was keep my mouth shut. Being an intelligence officer I was familiar with every, just about all the materials used in aircraft, and in air travel, this was nothing like that. It was not anything from this earth, that I am quite sure of.

[Tape recording during Rendlesham incident with other soldiers]
I see it, too… It’s back again… It’s coming this way… There is no doubt about it… This is weird… It looks like an eye winking at you… It almost burns your eyes… He’s coming towards us now… [panic] Now we are observing what appears to be a beam coming down to the ground… One object still hovering over Woodbridge base… beaming down.

1979

December 9, 1979 at around 9:15 am… The object [had] a precise contour, a gray metal color on the top and dark blue below, with no lights or portholes. It went about three meters from the ground, not stabilized, and then rose to the level of the trees [250 meters away], while continuously oscillating, then went down again slightly and stopped. It went up a little once again, always while oscillating; it tilted and accelerated quickly to reach a speed much higher than that of a Mirage III [French fighter jet capable of Mach 2], and disappeared.

If we persist in refusing to recognize the existence of the UFOs, we will end up, one fine day, by mistaking them for the guided missiles of an enemy — and the worst will be upon us.

1958

The Air Force had put out a secret order for its pilots to capture UFOs. For the last six months we have been working with a congressional committee investigating official secrecy concerning proof that UFOs are real machines under intelligent control.

1957

No agency in this country or Russia is able to duplicate at this time the speeds and accelerations which radars and observers indicate the flying objects are able to achieve. There are signs that an intelligence directs these objects because of the way they fly. The way they change position in formations would indicate that their motion is directed.

Unidentified Flying Objects are entering our atmosphere at very high speeds and obviously under intelligent control. We must solve this riddle without delay.

Of course UFOs are real, and they are interplanetary. The cumulative evidence for the existence of UFOs is quite overwhelming and I accept the fact of their existence.

1947

The [UAP] phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious… extreme rates of climb, maneuverability (particularly in roll), and motion which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar… [which] lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, or remotely.
