Tonight's guest Robert O. Dean believes the US government has had knowledge of an extraterrestrial reality for quite some time. One fascinating account that would be corroboration of this, concerns a secretive visit that President Eisenhower allegedly made to Muroc Field (now Edwards Air Force Base) in 1954. He was there to view ET craft- and reportedly even watched a disc land.
Gerald Light, an eyewitness to the encounter, who attended the meeting with a representative of Hearst Newspapers, claimed that Roman Catholic bishop James McIntyre and Edward Nourse of the Brookings Institute were also there. Light referred to the aliens as "the Etherians" (another reported witness, a British pilot, said they were basically human in appearance).
According to Light's report, the aliens requested that Eisenhower make the public aware of their existence, but the President didn't believe people were ready for such a bombshell. "I watched the pathetic bewilderment of rather brilliant brains struggling to make some sort of rational explanation that would enable them to retain their familiar theories and concepts. I shall never forget those 48 hours at Muroc," Light wrote. Though Eisenhower may not have struck a deal with the Etherians, Richard Boylan writes in an article(1), that ET's did find others to make an agreement with. According to his NSA informant, the aliens entered into an arrangement with the Bilderberg Group and the Council on Foreign Relations, and were given an island in French Polynesia to set up as a base.
