Is there a major UFO cover-up?
Former CIA Director Admiral
Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter publicly voiced
his concern about UFOs and a major UFO cover-up in the New York
Times on February 28, 1960. Hillenkoetter was the first director of
the CIA when it was originally created in 1947, serving as its
director until 1950.
The highly revealing Times article interestingly was buried on page
30 of the Sunday edition that winter day 50 years ago. You can
easily verify this by going to the New York Times archives webpage
for the article at
this link. Immediately under the title, you will
see descriptors for the article: "February 28, 1960, Sunday, Page
30, 418 words."
Also interesting to note is that the title of the article in the
archives reads "AIR FORGE ORDER ON 'SAUCERS' CITED." Because of the
misspelled word "forge" (should be force), when I first heard about
this article several years ago, I was unable to confirm the story. I
searched the Times archives using the original title and came up
Only later, when I searched again on some of the content in the
article, did I eventually find it. I have done hundreds of article
searches in the Times archives over the years. Yet this is the only
spelling error I've ever come across. Makes you wonder...

Here are key excerpts of quotes by CIA Director Hillenkoetter
from the article:
It is time for the truth to be brought out in open Congressional
hearings. 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. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced
So the former head of the CIA claims that the U.S. Air Force is
silencing its personnel on the topic of UFOs, yet the Times buries
the article on page 30 of the Sunday paper. And then no other major
media has ever mentioned this fact since. Nor have they given much
coverage to hundreds of other top military and government officials
who have publicly talked about a major UFO cover-up. For a
powerfully revealing summary of the statements of some of these
For a most fascinating documentary on UFOs which includes videotaped
coverage of the testimony of some of these top officials, watch Out
of the Blue, which was broadcast on the Sci Fi channel. This
gripping documentary has by far the best, most reliable evidence
ever seen on the topic.
It was one of the most popular programs to
ever appear on the Sci Fi Channel.
