Astronaut Edgar Mitchell on UFO Cover-up

EM: My major knowledge comes from what I call the old-timers, people who were at Roswell and subsequent who wanted to clear the things up and tell somebody credible even though they were under severe threats and things -- this was back in the Roswell days. Having gone to the moon and being a local citizen out in the Roswell area some of them thought I would be a safe choice to tell their story to, which they did. Even though the government put real clamps on everybody, it got out anyhow.

Subsequent to that, I did take my story to the Pentagon -- not NASA, but the Pentagon -- and asked for a meeting with the Intelligence Committee of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and got it. And told them my story and what I know and eventually had that confirmed by the admiral that I spoke with, that indeed what I was saying was true.

IK: You mean what had been told to you was true?

EM: Yup, in other words. There was a UFO crash. There was an alien spacecraft. This gentleman tried his damndest to get me in and like so many others in the administration over the last 60 years, since JFK's time, was unable to. He was told 'Admiral, you don't have a need to know, and therefore go get lost,' essentially.
I am a skeptic on the UFO matter but reports like this do make one wonder.

Doesn't the 'U' in UFO already denote all possible skepticism? If this were algebra, you'd be a believer. Ready to throw your support to Kucinich now?

I think I saw a UFO in my car's rear-view mirror, I thought it was a state trooper's blue light, but it shot forward over and in front of me at an impossible speed, and disappeared, no big deal. I've seen and experienced things far more unbelievable. Haven't you?

I'm sorry, but I can't consider Edgar Mitchel to be a credible source on this topic. He's no Bob Lazard and I admire his courage as an astronauts, but that doesn't give him an expertise on UFO. All his "knowledge" on the issue comes from unnamed sources, the "old timer" at Roswell...

It's not because some people believe they retrieve an alien craft that they did.

Roswell was clearly a military cover up, but not of recovered alien visitors who don't know how to land after crossing the vast distance between stars. They didn't wanted the Soviet to know they were able to monitor their nuclear test...
