The UFO-believers community has buzzed for years that former President Dwight D. Eisenhower met with extraterrestrials -- not just once, but on three separate occasions.
No definitive proof has ever surfaced to confirm this president-meets-aliens tale. However, according to Timothy Good, Eisenhower and FBI officials arranged for the out-of-this-world summit at Holloman Air Force Base.
"Aliens have made both formal and informal contact with thousands of people throughout the world from all walks of life," Good, an author, lecturer and former consultant to Congress and the Pentagon, said on Frank Skinner's BBC2 program, "Opinionated."
According to the Huffington Post,the story about Eisenhower's close encounter of the very personal kind -- where he reportedly met with Nordic-looking aliens -- supposedly unfolded while the president was vacationing in Palm Springs, Calif., in February 1954.
Good isn't the first to come forth with such claims, of course. In 2010, Henry McElroy Jr., a retired New Hampshire state representative, revealed that he saw a secret briefing document intended for Eisenhower that claimed there were aliens in America.
"To the best of my memory, this brief was pervaded with a sense of hope, and it informed President Eisenhower of the continued presence of extraterrestrial beings here in the United States of America," McElroy said on the video. "The tone of the brief indicated to me that there was no need for concern, since these visitors were in no way causing any harm or had any intentions whatsoever of causing any disruption then or in the future."
Well, then, we have nothing to worry about.
