Summary: We have heard a lot about UFO conspiracy theories and they are always connected to same branch of the military/government, the CIA, FBI, NSA, all those infamous 3-letter organizations. But how about the United Nations?
We have heard a lot about UFO conspiracy theories and they are always connected to same branch of the military/government, the CIA, FBI, NSA, all those infamous 3-letter organizations. But how about the United Nations?
In the 1960s, it was reported that Colman von Keviczky, a member of the UN Office of Public Information decided that it would be a good idea to bring all UFO sightings under the jurisdiction of the UN and that the UN be the only authorized group to openly contact craft and their occupants.
In the 1970's, Sir Eric Gairy, then Prime Minister of Grenada (a small island in the Caribbean) repeatedly called for a special group within the UN to investigate UFO's. It was while Gairy was at the UN, attending a conference with other UFO experts, including Gen. Kurt Waldheim, the late Allen J. Hynek and Maj. von Keviczky, that a coup by a group calling themselves JEWEL put Maurice Bishop in power in Grenada.
Gairy had accused 'some nations'_which he did not identify publicly_of stifling UFO information. By the way, the United States opposed Gairy's idea to have the UN conduct UFO research. We must assume, however, that does not mean that the UN was not involved with UFO.
In July of 1978, Astronaut Gordon Cooper spoke before a UN assembly. Present were Len Stringfield, UFO researcher; Sir Eric Gairy, then still Prime Minister of Grenada; Lee Spiegel, Research and Visual Consultant on UFO data; the late Dr. Allen Hynek, then Director of the Center on UFO Studies, Evanston, IL; Dr. Claude Poher, Director of the French Agency for the Investigation of UFO's and the Rev. Ray Nielsen, representative of The Aertherius Society.
A rather lengthy speech given by Cooper began: "I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting the planet from other planets that are a little more technically advanced than we are on earth. I feel that we need to have a top-level coordinated program to scientifically collect and analyze data from all over the earth concerning any type of encounter and to determine how best to interfere with these visitors in a friendly fashion... ."
The content of the speech was also written, by Cooper, November 9, 1978, in a letter to Ambassador Griffith, Mission of Grenada, to the UN.
It was later reported that Cooper, though not actually denying his words, "changed his mind about the subject of UFO's, aliens, and travel between planets."
The UN is now more actively involved in the "nation-building" activities of almost every country in the world, especially those from which massive UFO sightings were reported since 1989, the time when those particular countries began their most dramatic changes.
