CIA Director UFOs Are Real
Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, was the third Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) from 1947 to 1950, and the first Director of the CIA, which was established in September 1947.
Hillenkoetter was one of the first intelligence chiefs to make public his conviction that UFO’s were real.” On August 22, 1960, he stated,
“I am aware that hundreds of military and airline pilots, airport personnel, astronomers, missile trackers and other competent observers have reported sightings . . . These UFOs are interplanetary devices systematically observing the earth, either manned or under remote control, or both.”
“It is time for the truth to be brought out… Behind the scenes high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about unidentified flying objects. Former CIA Director Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, in a signed statement to Congress, August 22, 1960.
