I have followed this story closely for years.


There are a couple problems that must be considered.

In preparation for the US History Channel look at UFOs and the
President in 2006, John Greenwald went to the Kennedy Library
looking for UFO files, as this was one library I had not been
to. History Channel was covering all the bases. The Holden story
was one of the stories that John investigated. He could find no
record of Holden on any of the flights from the time Air Force
One left Andrews AFB on June 22, 1963 till June 29, 1963 when
Air Force One returned to Andrews. The only saving grace for the
Holden story is that he was stationed in Wiesbaden West German
and claimed to be on the June 26th Wiesbaden to Berlin flight
where Kennedy made the famous speech at the wall. The records we
have now do not include the flight crew for that particular leg
of the trip.

The second possible yellow light on this story is that Holden
has told two different versions of the story. In Laughlin in
1995 Holden told the story that he had talked to Kennedy about
UFOs because of the newspaper that had the UFOs on the front
page that day, but Kennedy just asked him what he thought.
Later, at a conference in Bonn the Holden story became more
complex when Holden stated that Kennedy had said, "I'd like to
tell the public about the alien situation, but my hands are
tied." Now the the Project Camelot interview he is back to
telling the simple story that he told in 1995 without the part
about the president's hands being tied.

I tried to contact Holden about these differing accounts but he
was not available anymore at the contact number he had provided
at the Laughlin convention in 1995. I also wanted him to talk
about a "Top Hat" security clearance he said he possessed. I was
not able to find anything on it.
