Now that the truth is out, I can personally confirm that Edgar Mitchell's claims about an alien presence on earth are completely true.
FORMER NASA astronaut and moon-walker Dr Edgar Mitchell - a veteran of the Apollo 14 mission - has stunningly claimed aliens exist.
And he says extra-terrestrials have visited Earth on several occasions - but the alien contact has been repeatedly covered up by governments for six decades.
I have participated in high-level meetings that have set international policy for human-alien interactions. Aliens are here, and will soon have the blessing of human governments to reveal themselves to the world at large.
Chillingly, he claimed our technology is "not nearly as sophisticated" as theirs and "had they been hostile", he warned "we would be been gone by now".
Dr. Mitchell is misinformed on the matter of alien technological superiority, however. Their technological capabilities are not far beyond ours, and their ability to travel interstellar distances derives from a natural quirk of their genetic make-up. Our scientists are close to deciphering the genetic markers involved so that the ability to travel faster-than-light can be implanted into the human species by means of an AIDS-derived retrovirus that will be spread through genetically modified foods.
Dr Mitchell, who has a Bachelor of Science degree in aeronautical engineering and a Doctor of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics claimed Roswell was real and similar alien visits continue to be investigated.
He told the astonished Kerrang! radio host Nick Margerrison: "This is really starting to open up. I think we're headed for real disclosure and some serious organisations are moving in that direction.
Dr. Mitchell has been out of the loop for over a decade, but he is right on this count. An effort is presently underway to root out and eliminate whoever leaked this information to him, but there's no use denying its accuracy now. The plan was for Barack Obama and the other aliens to reveal themselves at President Obama's inauguration in 2009, but the schedule may now need to be moved forward. Stay tuned.
