• John L. Guerra has published a book entitled, “Strange Craft: The True Story of an Air Force Intelligence Officer’s Life with UFOs”, wherein Guerra claims that a military police officer shot an extraterrestrial being at Fort Dix in the early morning hours of Jan. 18, 1978. Former Air Force intelligence officer Major George Filer III, now 84 and living in living in Medford, New Jersey with his wife Janet, wrote a top-secret memo about the incident.

• On a cold dark night in January 1978, a soldier was driving a military police vehicle through the woods on the Air Force side of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Burlington County, NJ, in pursuit of a strange, low-flying aircraft that had been observed passing through the military installation’s airspace at about 2 am. Suddenly the soldier realized that an oval-shaped craft radiating a blue-green glow was hovering directly over his vehicle. Then a greyish-brown creature with a big head, long arms and slender body walked out of the nearby shadows and showed itself by stepping into the vehicle’s headlights. The soldier drew his .45 caliber pistol and shot the creature five times, killing it. Its remains gave off a foul-smelling, ammonia-like stench. A cleanup crew from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio flew in to retrieve the body. The retrieval crew acted as if this occurrence was not out of the ordinary.

• Major Filer arrived on base before dawn that day to prepare his daily intelligence briefing for his superior officers. Security at the base had been tightened and Filer personally observed the emergency response in the aftermath of the incident. Filer interviewed witnesses but was denied access to photos taken at the scene. The senior master sergeant on duty told Filer, “An alien has been shot at Fort Dix and they found it on the end of our (McGuire AFB) runway.” Filer asked, “Was it an alien from another country?” “No,” said the master sergeant. “[I]t was from outer space, a space alien. There are UFOs buzzing around the pattern like mad.”

• The Air Force classified everything as top secret and silenced the witnesses through national security restrictions and good old-fashioned intimidation. Everyone, that is, except Filer who has spoken publicly of the incident ever since. The local newspaper, The Trentonian, first reported about the incident in July 2007. The Air Force has repeatedly denied the claim, however, telling the newspaper that “the case was discredited as a hoax years ago.”

• The official explanation for the “misidentification” was that, in 1978, people were in a UFO frenzy with the US/USSR Space Race and the Apollo Moon missions still fresh in everyone’s minds. Earlier that year, Steven Spielberg had released his blockbuster movie, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, and the movie “Star Wars” had been in theaters the previous year. UFO sightings had greater credibility back then. There were 377 references to UFOs published in the press between 1977 and 1978, compared to 85 references between 2017 and 2018. Even President Jimmy Carter had acknowledged that he had seen a UFO and pledged to uncover whatever secrets about UFOs the government may have been hiding.

• Then there were the strange booms heard in the sky over the Jersey Shore and much of the East Coast between December 1977 and March 1978, which had the population on edge. One boom was so loud that it caused a tremor in southern Ocean County and the evacuation of the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in Lacey, NJ. The booms were blamed on sonic booms from the supersonic British-French airliner, the Concorde, flying out of JFK Airport. However, subsequent booms did not conform to the Concorde’s schedule.

• Whatever happened at McGuire Air Force Base on Jan. 18, 1978, it is now part of folklore. While Filer never actually saw the dead alien, he says that he knows for a fact that the story is true. Filer claims to have seen UFOs throughout his entire life, starting at age 5 outside his boyhood home in Illinois. He later served as the state director for MUFON in New Jersey. (See a 48 minute video of George Filer describing the Fort Dix incident below.)

 

Was an alien shot and killed in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey?

A new book, titled “Strange Craft: The True Story of an Air Force Intelligence Officer’s Life with UFOs,” claims that a military police officer shot an extraterrestrial being at Fort Dix in the early morning hours of Jan. 18, 1978.

In the book by author John L. Guerra and published by Bayshore Publishing Co. of Tampa, Florida, retired Air Force Major George Filer III — a decorated former intelligence officer for the 21st Air Force, Military Airlift Command at the adjacent McGuire Air Force Base — recounts the extraordinary tale from America’s disco age.

              Ret. Major George Filer III

Filer, now 84 and living in Medford with his wife, Janet, said what has been an urban legend first promulgated by UFO enthusiasts since the early 1980s is indeed true. That’s because he was there and wrote a top-secret memo about it, he said.

In the freezing winter darkness of that day in January 1978, a bipedal creature, described as about 4 feet in height and grayish-brown in color, with a “fat head, long arms and slender body,” was shot to death with five rounds fired from a service member’s .45-caliber (military issue M1911A1) handgun.

As Guerra explains it in his book, the soldier had originally been in a police pickup truck, driving through the wilderness of the base in pursuit of a strange, low-flying aircraft that had been observed passing through the military installation’s airspace about 2 a.m. that morning.

About an hour into the drive, the soldier became aware — in typical, horror movie fashion — that the craft, oval-shaped and radiating a blue-green glow, was hovering directly over his vehicle.

That’s when the “creature” emerged from the shadows on foot, revealing itself to the soldier by stepping into the beams of the vehicle’s headlights where the panicked MP drew his weapon, ordered the alien to freeze, and he fired.

According to the retired major as told in the book, the alleged alien succumbed to its gunshot wounds on the Air Force side of what is now Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Burlington County; its remains giving off a foul-smelling, ammonia-like stench.

Later that morning, a cleanup crew from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio — headquarters of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center — flew in to retrieve the body, behaving as if the creature was, well, not entirely alien to them.

The Asbury Park Press reached out to the Air Force at the Joint Base for comment about this story, but never heard back.

George Bush Sr Took UFO Secrets To the Grave – Because ‘Americans Couldn’t Handle the Truth’, Lobbyist Claims

by Emma Parry                    December 18, 2018                  (thescottishsun.co.uk)

• Steve Bassett (pictured above left), an American UFO lobbyist, told the (Scottish) Sun Online that the 41st US President, George Herbert Walker Bush (pictured above right), knew the truth about the extraterrestrial presence on and around the Earth, and could have ended the UFO cover-up. Bush was a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and had been briefed daily by CIA agents while in the White House. Bush-41 would have been the “ideal” president to disclose the truth about UFOs as he was so well informed. But he kept all his UFO knowledge a secret right up until he died last month at age 94 at his home in Houston, Texas.

• According to Bassett, Bush-41 “…would have been the ideal ‘Disclosure’ President… The Cold War was over and the door was now open to end a very expensive and complex truth embargo.” “[I]t is my view the military/intelligence complex would have been quite comfortable with ‘Disclosure’ taking place during a second term of President George H. W. Bush.”

• Former US President Jimmy Carter pledged that he would disclose to US citizens what the government knew about UFOs if elected after witnessing a strange light while governor of Georgia in 1969. But while director of the CIA, Bush is said to have blocked President Carter’s attempts to obtain UFO information during a briefing on November 19, 1976. Bush told the president-elect he didn’t have the need to know but if he wanted information he should ask the Congressional Research Service (CRS) to prepare a briefing for the new administration. Bassett thinks Bush rebuffed Carter because he knew some UFOs were extra-terrestrial in origin. “Carter fired him shortly thereafter,” says Bassett. “One might ask, ‘If there was no truth to the extra-terrestrial hypothesis, why would Bush disrespect a presidential request?”

• Bassett also claims that “…Bush was quite knowledgeable about the history of the extra-terrestrial presence to the extent he required. Did that include the July 1947 Roswell events? Almost certainly yes.”

• While campaigning with his son Jeb Bush in the 1980s, Bush-41 was asked about UFOs by a journalist. He replied, “Americans can’t handle the truth.” During a presidential rally trip to Rogers, Arkansas, in 1988, Bush was asked: “Will you tell the people the truth about UFOs?”  Bush replied: “I know some. I know a fair amount.” Later, Bush included in a speech: “We will travel to neighboring stars, to new worlds, to discover the unknown.”

 

The 41st President of the United States, who died last month aged 94, was a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and was briefed daily by spooks while in the White House.

And according to UFO researchers he would have been the “ideal” president to disclose the truth about UFOs as he was so well informed.

But he kept all his UFO knowledge a secret right up until he died at his home in Houston, Texas.

Steve Bassett, an American UFO lobbyist, told Sun Online Bush knew the truth about extra terrestrial life and could have ended the UFO cover-up.

He said: “The consensus among researchers is George H. W. Bush would have been briefed on the extra-terrestrial presence to whatever extent he so desired.

“There is no clear evidence George H. W. Bush wanted ‘Disclosure’. That said, it is my view the military/intelligence complex would have been quite comfortable with ‘Disclosure’ taking place during a second term of President George H. W. Bush.

“He would have been the ideal ‘Disclosure’ President from their perspective. The Cold War was over and the door was now open to end a very expensive and complex truth embargo.”

While director of the CIA, Bush is said to have even blocked former president Jimmy Carter’s attempts to obtain UFO information during an alleged briefing on November 19, 1976.

Bush told the president-elect he didn’t have the need to know but if he wanted information he should ask the Congressional Research Service (CRS) to prepare a briefing for the new administration.

Carter had pledged he would disclose to US citizens what the government knew about UFOs if elected after witnessing a strange light while governor of Georgia in 1969.

Bassett, the executive director of UFO campaign group Paradigm Research Group, thinks Bush rebuffed Carter as he knew some UFOs were extra-terrestrial in origin.

He said: “We do know the newly elected President Carter approached CIA Director Bush regarding a study the White House wished to initiate regarding the extra-terrestrial issue.

“Bush declined to cooperate and referred him to another agency. This may have guaranteed he would not be able to stay on as CIA Director – or not.

“Carter fired him shortly thereafter. One might ask, ‘If there was no truth to the extra-terrestrial hypothesis, why would Bush disrespect a presidential request?'”

Donald Trump and UFOs

by Britt Nelson                  June 7, 2018                  (news.co.cr)

• Countries such as Great Britain and Russia have released their once classified UFO files for public consumption, leaving no doubt about the true existence of UFOs. After 500 days in office, has President Trump been briefed about UFOs? Or is the ultra ‘top secret’ truth about UFO’s above even the President’s security clearance?

• In 1969, before becoming Governor of Georgia and President of the United States, Jimmy Carter was speaking at a Lions Club meeting in Leary, Georgia when he and 20 other people saw a multi-colored UFO moving across the sky. Carter said, “One thing’s for sure, I’ll never make fun of people who say they’ve seen unidentified objects in the sky. If I become President, I’ll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and the scientists.” In 1977, President Carter asked then CIA Director George H.W. Bush to disclose what information the CIA had on UFOs. Bush told Carter, “You have no need to know,” and that was the end of it. Thereafter, Carter inexplicably distanced himself from UFO disclosure, citing “defense implications”. Years later, after George H.W. Bush himself had served as President, he was asked about the existence of UFOs. Bush replied, “You don’t know the half of it.”

• On September 4, 1971, the Costa Rican National Geographic Institute was taking aerial photos from 10,000 feet above Lake Cote when they captured what some experts say is the best UFO photograph in the world (see below). In 2016, a tourist in Costa Rica captured amazingly clear photos of a UFO hovering above Irazu Volcano National Park in Cartago. (see below)

• Commercial airline and military pilots from around the world have described seeing and photographing UFOs. But most keep their sightings a secret for fear of being ridiculed. The astronaut Gordon Cooper gave an interview before he died in which he described witnessing and filming a UFO landing in Germany and taking off. Cooper said that before he could view the film it was seized by government officials and sent to Washington. Cooper never again heard anything about the film footage he captured.

 

Is there a level of ultra ‘top secret’ security above the President of the United States when it comes to UFOs? Certainly President Donald Trump, after 500 days in office, has been briefed about UFOs from NASA, the CIA and perhaps others, but then again maybe not. This question is intriguing and not stretching reality. Are there secrets ‘from out there’ that demand such secrecy? Maybe so! But why?

With all the Star Wars movies going back decades and dozens of science fiction films featuring extraterrestrial visitors from ‘outer space’ within or beyond our on Milky Way galaxy –what is there now to hide from the public? If the government did reveal that UFOs were real … so what? Regardless if we know they are here there are no answers as why UFOs are here, but they are here. For believers and seers of UFOs there is no doubt of their existence. Other countries such as Great Britain and Russia have released their once ‘top secret’ UFO files for public consumption that leave no doubt about the true existence of UFOs.

        over Irazu Volcano, Costa Rica

What will it take for President Trump to unexpectedly land Air Force One at the infamous and secretive ‘Area 51’ in the Nevada desert and demand a full-facility inspection from top-to-bottom and wall-to-wall? There are those that believe ‘Area 51’ contains actual captured or crashed UFOs.

One revealing statement from the lips of former President George H.W. Bush, a former CIA director, when asked about the existence of UFOs he said, “You don’t know the half of it.”  

In 2016, a tourist in Costa Rica captured amazingly clear photos of a UFO hovering above Irazu Volcano National Park in Cartago. The pictures were sent to the Mutual UFO Network for analysis, as reported in the Costa Rica Star News.

Maybe the most famous UFO sighting in Costa Rica took place on September 4, 1971, the Costa Rican National Geographic Institute was taking aerial photos from 10,000 feet of Lake Cote, the small body of water that would later become the larger Lake Arenal, as part of preliminary studies for the future hydroelectric project. Some experts say that this is the best UFO Photograph in the world.

Sept 4, 1971 UFO over Lake Cote, Costa Rica

It’s well known that former President Jimmy Carter (1977-81) witnessed unexplained aerial phenomena in Leary, Ga., in 1969 two years before becoming governor of Georgia. He was speaking to a Lions Club group at about 7:15 pm when someone — that noticed the strange light in the sky about 30-degrees above the horizon — spoke up and pointed it out to the 20 or so people that saw the UFO.

“All of a sudden, one of the men looked up and said, ‘Look, over in the west!’ And there was a bright light in the sky. We all saw it. And then the light, it got closer and closer to us. And then it stopped, I don’t know how far away, but it stopped beyond the pine trees. And all of a sudden it changed color to blue, and then it changed to red, then back to white. And we were trying to figure out what in the world it could be, and then it receded into the distance,” Carter said in an interview about the sighting. “One thing’s for sure, I’ll never make fun of people who say they’ve seen unidentified objects in the sky. If I become President, I’ll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and the scientists.”
