"Some UFOs are intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft, and this is the biggest story of the millennium."
These words are not the rantings of a deranged individual looking for attention or a comfortable straitjacket. Stanton Friedman is a maverick of sorts.
Employed for 14 years as a nuclear physicist for companies like General Electric, General Motors, Westinghouse and Aerojet General Nucleonics, he worked on highly classified programs involving nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets.
In 1958, UFOs caught his attention, and Friedman has since lectured about this subject at more than 700 colleges and professional groups in all 50 states and around the world.
Nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman has devoted more than 50 years to pursuing the scientific truth of UFOs, and was the original civilian investigator of the legendary 1947 Roswell, N.M., incident. "After 53 years of investigation, I'm convinced we're dealing here with a cosmic Watergate," he told AOL News. "That means a few people within major governments have known since at least 1947 that some UFOs are alien spacecraft."
In Friedman's new book, "Science Was Wrong," co-authored with Kathleen Marden, he wrote, "There's been no shortage of strong, negative proclamations from debunking groups and individuals who refuse to examine the evidence ... to support the notion that some UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin."
Friedman cites many cases of UFO encounters experienced by competent, reliable eyewitnesses, including one involving Japan Airlines.
Courtesy of Stanton Friedman One of the most credible sightings of a UFO in history is from a series of images taken aboard the Brazilian ship Almirante Saldanha on Jan. 16, 1958. The Saturn-shaped object was witnessed by the ship's crew and several scientists. The UFO approached the island, making a steep turn before flying away quickly. Juscelino Kubitschek, then president of Brazil, confirmed the authenticity of the photos. "A 747 over Alaska encountered something that was twice the size of an aircraft carrier, that flew circles around the jet. They reported it to the ground, where both the UFO and the 747 were picked up on radar.
"The explanation from debunkers was that it was Jupiter! Boy, airplane radar can pick up Jupiter? It was totally ludicrous. You're fighting the forces of 'evil,' one might say -- arrogance and ignorance."
While some scientists through the years have quietly suggested Earth has been visited by ETs, Friedman is the most outspoken. He's especially irked by the attitude of scientists who use radio and optical telescopes in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, such as the SETI Institute in California.
"Their livelihood depends on the assumption that there's nobody coming here, and if we just wait long enough, we're going to pick up the signal and it'll be the greatest discovery in man's history, and it will help solve all our problems.
"What really bothers me is that the SETI people will tell you there is no evidence for UFOs. Well, they certainly don't reference any, so there must not be, right? Wrong!"
If so, why would reputable scientists refuse to consider that Earth may be a vacation spot for otherworldly travelers?
"Because they'd have to admit that they'd ignored such a big story for so long and that they were wrong," Friedman said. "Being wrong is something that scientists don't like to admit at all........."

One of the best UFO pictures ever taken, this object was photographed by Paul Trent over his McMinnville, Ore., farm in May 1950. A subsequent Air Force investigation determined that "an extraordinary flying object, silvery, metallic, disk-shaped, tens of meters in diameter and evidently artificial, flew within sight of two eyewitnesses."
"These words are not the rantings of a deranged individual looking for attention or a comfortable straitjacket."Yeah, actually they are.
Resume polishing contractor trying to be famous.
A crackpot by any other name.
How did UFOs not catch his attention until 1958 if he investigated Roswell in 1947?
This happened not too far from where I grew up...
Que Helen Thomas photo in 3...2....
Friedman is a good man. I disagree with him about the Majestic documents (I think they’re frauds), but he’s right about the essential story...about 1% of the sightings are made by trained, intelligent witnesses with nothing to gain by such a report, and often much to lose.
There’s something there.
Jesus said we would know the last days by the return of the Jews to their homeland...and as in the days of Noah...the return of the Nephilem (sp?).
Stanton Freidman is a former debunker who "turned".
Some people ("certain experts") assert he's a disinfo agent.
Me? I figure he's a reptilian from Arcturus. But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe he's from Proxima Centauri.
Also, I don't think UFOs are, predominantly, metal ships from other planets. They don't have the characteristics that fit that paradigm. They're more likely something far outside our current understanding of reality, more akin to ghosts or Sliders.
Bump and ping!
Unfortunately, the whole phoney field of “Ufology” is so littered with crackpots churning out obviously fake photos and videos that it’s impossible to tell what’s real. It makes me question the validity of every single UFO report ever made. And I’ve actually seen one.
Which means one of them is probably sitting beside me while I type this.
LOL, Thanks alot, because I really NEEDED something new to worry about.
