What Did Reagan Know About UFOs?

Reagan seemed more enthralled with UFOs than all the U.S.
Presidents, including Nixon. Reporter Billy Cox noted the many
mentions of extraterrestrials in Reagan 's speeches and
commented, "Ronald Reagan 's abiding fascination with
extraterrestrials." One of Reagan 's daughters also commented on
her father 's obsession with UFOs and life on other planets. The
source of his fascination is often thought to be the "few"
sightings he claimed to have had.

In September 1981, Reagan received a letter from an UFO research
group director, Major Ret. Colman VonKeviczky. This man had made
a second career of sending plaintiff pleas to not only the
Presidents of the United States but to the U.N. Secretary
Generals. When a new president was elected or a new Secretary
General came on the scene they all heard from Major Ret. Colman

What VonKeviczky wanted was to get the figures of power and
authority in governments to recognize that UFOs ,
"...represented an intergalactic task force that will destroy
earth unless world leaders band together to end their hostile
actions against UFOs."


He was relentless. As a true believer of what he said he sent
letter and packages with materials outlining the dangers and
with demands than plans be drawn up for a defense against the
alien threat. In the September 1981 letter, more than 17
documents were sent to Reagan outlining the immediate threat to
the world from the aliens. This was his third letter to Reagan.

While his previous letters were not answered, his third one was.
A distinguished Army officer who gathered many high ranking
positions and metals including Director of Strategy, Plans and
Policy; Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Plans; National
Security Defense Group Director; and the Chief of the Policy
Branch of SHAPE in Belgium, Major General Robert Schweitzer,
answered it. Schweitzer was the Chief Military Advisor of the
White House and National Security Council.

Part of Schweitzer 's answer to VonKeviczky read as so:

"The President is well aware of the threat you document so
clearly and is doing all in his power to restore the national
defense margin of safety as quickly and prudently as possible."

Well, VonKeviczky didn't need a flying saucer to fly like the
wind to the Associated Press with "an admission" of the alien
threat by the Reagan administration. The AP almost put it out on
the wire but didn't once they called and talked with Schweitzer.
Had Schweitzer put the word "UFO" in between "the" and "threat"
they would have run with the story. You've just got to ask what
Schweitzer was really thinking? Was his song and dance he
offered to the AP the real deal, was it a stupid slip, or did he
really mean "the UFO threat" in the context of VonKeviczky 's
persistent screed?

The Chief Military Advisor of the White House and National
Security Council, Major General Robert Schweitzer, was let go on

Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) program

Though Reagan was credited with this program and its "possible
use" against space invaders, it was concept decades in the
making and one has to ask the question, how come? Generals
Douglas MacArthur and John A. McDavid both made comments for
public consumption of the possible invasion of interplanetary
beings. McDavid said an Air Force approved speech at Milliken
University, Decatur, Illinois:

"Before long, people may be forced to realize and accept as a
fact that this earth is only an infinitesimal grain of sand in
an infinite universe," declared McDavid. "The human is one of
many forms of life with which God is concerned and others are
superior to us. And if this is true, our meeting with other
types of existence in other places in the universe quite likely
will increase the potential element of conflict rather than
reduce it." [Ibid]

Why would a brigadier general have to have an Air Force approved
speech unless he was treading on Top-Secret grounds and had to
walk a very thin line in what he said? And, why if UFOs don't
exist, they are just balloons and swamp gas, would he have to
walk a very thin line and get Air Force approval?

A career State Department diplomat, Michael Michaud, wrote of
Nixon 's worry about an alien invasion:

"Aliens from other solar systems are a potential threat to us,
and we are a potential threat to them. Scientists and others
have often postulated that extraterrestrial societies more
advanced than ours would be less warlike. Regrettably, the
stereotypes of the benevolent, super intelligent alien may be as
unrealistic as the stereotype of the bug-eyed monster carrying
off shapely human females. Even if a species had achieved true
peace within its own ranks, it would still be worried about us,
and would take the measures it felt were necessary to protect
itself. This includes the possibility (not the inevitability) of
military action . . . Our basic interest will be to protect
ourselves from any possible threat to Earth 's security..."

There is some speculation that "Reagan 's " SDI had a two-fold
purpose: To defend against the Soviets and extraterrestrials.
Here are some of the sources:

In a June 1995 Bay Area Lecture Dr. Steven Greer announces
information leaked to him from the North American Air Defense
Command in Colorado shows that the Air Force tracks an average
of 500 "fastwalkers" (term used for UFOs) entering the earth
atmosphere every year.

New York Times Pulitzer prize winning author Howard Blum reports
that NORAD deep-space radars track many UFOs.

Two Aerospace engineers working on the AeroJet 's DSP spy
satellite claim UFOs are detected coming from deep space two or
three times a month.

Author Whitley Strieber, in his book Breakthrough, stated that
he had seen part of a document which revealed that the EG&G
Corporation is involved in developing defense weapons against

Two further sources have told Greer that rogue units within
Unacknowledged Special Access Programs, have directed black
budget funds to develop SDI weapons to down UFOs. Further the
sources have stated that they have been successful in shoot

It must be said that there are other Ufologists who do not agree
with these sources.

A Close Encounter of the Spielberg Kind

When Steven Spielberg 's movie, ET, came out, Spielberg did a
private showing for Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House.
There were guests invited for this private screening totally
about 35 other persons. Apparently, the Reagan 's loved the
movie indicated by Nancy 's tears and Ronald 's enthusiasm.

After the movie ended, the President leaned over to Spielberg
and in a hushed tone said,

"You know, there aren't six people in this room who know how
true this really is."


Spielberg told a TV producer of Reagan 's comment while being
interviewed for a documentary.
