Robert O. Dean is a
highly decorated veteran who fought in both the Korean and Vietnam wars.
After having successfully passed a series of high level security checks,
Dean claims he was given the highest top secret clearance NATO
had and assigned to the Supreme Headquarters Operation Center (SHOC),
located just outside Paris, France. In January of 1964, the SHOC
controller on duty went into a NATO vault and handed Dean a
massive, highly classified document.
Called, "ASSESSMENT: AN
EVALUATION OF A POSSIBLE MILITARY THREAT TO ALLIED FORCES IN EUROPE,"
the 12-inch thick document was one of only 15 copies in
existence. The document was the result of two and a half years of
research, which had been funded by NATO.
It had been put together by
military representatives of every NATO nation and also included
contributions from some of our planet's greatest scientific minds.
15 copies were numbered and classified. They were kept under lock and
key. They had been published in English, German, and French. The Super
Top Secret document dealt, exhaustively, with UFO's.
According to Dean, the NATO-produced document on UFO's
contained the following information:
The UFO study
team that compiled the document had traveled to Cambridge, Oxford,
the Sorbonne, MIT, and other major universities for input on
chemistry, physics, atmospheric physics, biology, history,
psychology, and even theology. These areas were listed with separate
The document contained
reports of civilian and military encounters with UFO's--and
their occupants. Some of these reports contained interviews with
people who claimed to have been taken aboard UFO's. In one of these
reports, a Danish farmer claimed that the aliens he encountered--two
little beings and two human looking beings--spoke to him in his
One appendix, entitled 'Autopsies',
contained photographs of a 30-meter disc that had crashed in Timmensdorfer, Germany, in 1961. According to the report, the
British army reached the crash sight first and established a
perimeter. Since the craft had crashed in very soft, loamy soil, it
hadn't been destroyed.
The United States and Russian
governments also joined in the investigation.
Inside the craft
were 12 small grey bodies, all dead. There were
pictures of the bodies being laid out and then put on
stretchers and loaded into jeeps. There were also autopsy
photos. These autopsies said that the small grey creatures
looked as if they were clones of some kind, with
no alimentary track. They did not ingest, or process
food as we do, nor did they have any system for elimination.
Furthermore, it appeared that they were incapable of
The craft was
cut up into six pie-shaped pieces and flown off to Wright-Patterson Air Force base in Ohio.
The NATO report
contained 5 major conclusions:
planet, and the human race, have been studied by several
different extraterrestrial civilizations. Four of these
races have been identified visually. One race looked the
same as the human race. Another race was about the same
height, stature and structure as we are, but had a very
grey, pasty skin color. The third race was the small,
large-headed and small-bodied Greys. And the fourth
race was reptilian, with vertical pupils and
alien visitations had been going on for at least 200 years,
and probably longer.
extraterrestrial visitors did not appear hostile.
Flybys, and various other UFO maneuvers were designed
to demonstrate their capabilities.
carefully orchestrated program of some kind seemed to be
underway. It began with flybys, then landings, and
eventually culminated in contact.
An Article that appeared in
the April 1994 issue of OMNI MAGAZINE contains a longer version
of Dean's story. In this longer version, Dean lists the names of
commanding officers who were aware of this document and also discusses
the ongoing trouble NATO had dealing with UFO's that would regularly
appear over central Europe.
In 1961, Dean claimed
that fifty large, metallic, circular objects were spotted on radar. They
were flying in formation from the Soviet Union towards Europe, at about
Although Dean claims the UFO's only appeared on
radar for nine minutes, they caused both NATO and the Soviet
Union to go to red alert and scramble war planes. According to Dean,
a major military confrontation was narrowly averted.
