LAS VEGAS, July 28 – In a national televised broadcast July 18, U.S. talk show host Larry King interviewed four former U.S. Air Force officers who claim a UFO shut down nuclear missiles at an air base in Montana in 1967 – information kept from the public for 40 years.
“This isn’t the first time such an incident has been reported,” said Ricky Lee Roehr, leader of the North American Raelian Movement. “For decades, many sources have described similar events. Allegedly, UFOs have disabled nuclear missile systems not only on several U.S. bases but in other countries as well. The fact that similar stories have been reported worldwide makes the idea not only plausible, but extremely interesting.”
Officials have typically reacted not only with secrecy, but with foolish behavior, he said.
“Some researchers say military leaders believe these visitors might be planning to attack us,” Roehr said. “But according to military records, it’s our planes that fire on UFOs, not the other way around. That’s a very foolish course of action. How could anyone think our weapons could harm a civilization capable of intergalactic travel? It’s comparable to cavemen throwing spears at an F-16 jet fighter.”
He pointed out that the UFOs haven’t returned fire.
“According to current military mentality, intelligently controlled craft would certainly have the right to defend themselves and shoot back. But they don’t. All reports clearly show that they just neutralize our weapon systems to defend themselves without harming us" said Brigitte Boisselier, spokesperson of the International Raelian Movement. "As Raelians, we happen to know that’s really what’s happening. Those capable of interstellar travel are peaceful by definition, since they otherwise would have destroyed themselves long ago like we are on th everge to do on Earth today. If they had any bad intentions toward us whatsoever, they would have destroyed those who fired upon them. Instead, they demonstrated great understanding and compassion for us by ignoring our aggression. They’re basically protecting us from ourselves, in fact.”
But nobody in a top military post would want to admit the logic of this, she said.
“We have to look at the track record. Governments and military have power and paychecks to maintain. They’re in the business of convincing us that they’re protecting us from attack. Instilling fear is the way authorities stay in power and we surely don’t want Earth’s leaders suddenly decide to say ‘We don’t know who’s in these UFOs or whether they’ll attack us or not’, in order to frighten people and justify new armament as they always do. Instilling fear and finding the next enemy is the favorite strategy of our governments. The Raelian philosophy is here to make sure that the people understand how they can be badly manipulated into hating harmless foreigners." added Boisselier
But Roehr said the tide is turning.
“Some highly credible sources, including ex-astronauts, ex-military officers, and prominent government officials, are coming forth to corroborate the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrial life,” he said. “And some of those people have knowledge of specific extraterrestrial visits that have been kept from the public. In fact, just yesterday, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the famous astronaut who walked on the moon, was recently quoted in a news report on this subject. His exact words were, ‘I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real. It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it’s leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it.’”
Roehr said public statements such as Mitchell’s and those of other highly prominent people, such as the ex-governor of Arizona, who have seen UFOs and discussed those experiences in the media, will help bring about the most important event in human history.
“Those who created us are the Elohim, advanced scientists from another planet who were mistaken for gods by primitive humans,” Boisselier said. “They want to return and meet with us openly, but only when we’re ready to welcome them. People like Mitchell and the four ex-Air Force officers who went on record publicly to disclose their UFO knowledge are helping to bring that about.”
