Did President Eisenhower have a meeting with extraterrestrial ambassadors on the evening of Feb 20, 1954 to discuss the impending test of the largest U.S. hydrogen bomb ever detonated?


Rumors have circulated for years that President Eisenhower was secretly whisked away from his family holiday at Palm Springs, California to Edwards Air Force base for a rendezvous with ambassadors from another world. Alleged whistleblowers claiming to have seen photos or documents concerning the meeting, or having actually attended the meeting itself, have over the years surfaced to tell their astounding story.


With the passage of time, many have passed away.


Some told family members who have revealed what they were told of Eisenhower’s remarkable meeting. February 20, 2009 marks the 55th anniversary of this alleged meeting and the nuclear diplomacy with extraterrestrial visitors that secretly occurred 9 days before the Bravo Hydrogen bomb test on March 1, 1954.

I first discussed the evidence supporting the alleged Eisenhower extraterrestrial meeting in a 2003 study while still holding an academic research position in the School of International Service at American University in Washington D.C.


Some of my research findings were contained in the first published book on exopolitics where I described the policy implications of extraterrestrial life. The book’s release coincided with the 50th anniversary of the alleged Eisenhower extraterrestrial meeting on February 20, 2004. The alleged meeting was interesting enough for Peter Carlson from the Washington Post to write a feature article that appeared on February 19 describing the debate over Eisenhower’s whereabouts on the evening in question.

I have since continued my search for the ever elusive evidence of the alleged meeting. I have been successful in tracking down additional witnesses and family members who claim that they saw events or documents associated with Eisenhower’s secret extraterrestrial liaison. For example, the widow of a former Military Policeman, claims that he witnessed Eisenhower visiting Edwards Air Force Base on the night in question.


Eisenhower entered a secure hangar with a flying saucer (the earlier term used for UFOs) inside that was being guarded by the MP who was sworn to secrecy. Another military widow claims that her husband saw photos of Eisenhower meeting extraterrestrials while he was stationed at the Pentagon. Her husband was also sworn to secrecy.

Another witness is a retired USAF medic, stationed at the time near Palm Springs at George Air Force base. He claims that his medical unit was ordered to provide stand by medical support in case of an emergency at nearby Norton Air Force base where Eisenhower boarded a C-45. Eisenhower was then quickly flown to Palmdale, which is adjacent to Edwards Air Force base. Furthermore, more testimonies have emerged confirming that Edwards Air Force base was subjected to an unprecedented three day shut down during the period of Eisenhower’s alleged visit.


This is the first concrete proof that something with extraordinary national security implications was taking place at Edwards Air Force Base during Eisenhower’s California ‘holiday’.

What has been especially surprising is the strong conviction of witnesses and/or their family members who after more than 50 years remain convinced that President Eisenhower was involved in an extraordinary meeting at Edwards Air Force base.


Together with other witness testimonies, a compelling case can finally be made that President Eisenhower did in fact meet with extraterrestrials to conduct secret nuclear diplomacy on the night of February 20, 1954.

Eisenhower's famous Atom's for Peace speech at the United Nations just over two months before the meeting on December 8, 1953, indicated that he supported ending nuclear weapons development and testing.


Eisenhower was not alone in his desire which apparently was shared by extraterrestrials.

If he did meet with extraterrestrials on Feb 20, the detonation of the 15 Megaton Bravo Hydogen bomb nine days later on March 1, 1954, clearly signaled the failure of the secret nuclear diplomacy.


On February 24, 2009, during the 55th anniversary week of the alleged meeting, I present my research findings and launch a book analyzing the meeting’s amazing policy implications.


The venue will be the International UFO Congress in Laughlin, Nevada.


The Congress runs from February 22-28 and will feature myself and other prominent researchers discussing evidence of extraterrestrial life, and its policy implications.
