Communications/Inner Light Publications, the
ever-prolific publishing house helmed by CEO Timothy Green Beckley, has
recently published a new book that delves into UFOs, conspiracy theory and
governmental gamesmanship called “America’s Top Secret Treaty With Alien Life
Forms: Plus The Hidden History of Our Time.” The primary text of the book is by
“Commander X,” the pseudonym of a former military intelligence operative who
has long been dedicated to exposing the government/ET cover-up, but what
follows are excerpts and quotations from the book that borrow from the
introductory chapters authored by Beckley and, in the interest of full
To better appreciate the material presented here, one should
perhaps make the following leaps of faith:
THE NECESSARY LEAPS OF FAITH
First, you have to accept the premise that we are not alone
in the universe.
Then you have to agree intelligent life has arrived here and
that it consists of a group or groups of ETs who are more advanced than we are
and who can travel freely through time and space.
Then we must ask ourselves if we are important enough that
they would endeavor to set up some sort of ongoing “relationship” with us. And
why, indeed, the United States? Presumably because we are thought of as the
most powerful nation on the planet?
There is a growing conviction among a certain “fringe” group
of Ufologists that we have gone so far as to negotiate a treaty with at least
one group of aliens, possibly several.
So who signed this treaty? And what exactly does it consist
And – perhaps most important of all – has the treaty been
broken because one or both sides did not keep to this agreement?
ESTABLISHES FIRST CONTACT
Did Eisenhower meet with aliens at Muroc AFB in the California desert?
Most stories about the alleged treaty
between the U.S. government and a race of UFO occupants start with then President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and his rendezvous with the alien interlopers circa 1954.
The story is told in varying versions and may already be
familiar in one form or another to the seasoned UFO reader, but it is told again
here to lay the foundation for the basic
concept of this book. One of the most thorough treatments of the
Eisenhower encounter is told by Michael E. Salla, Ph.D., in an online posting
called, aptly enough, “Eisenhower’s 1954 Meeting With Extraterrestrials.”
begins on the night of and early morning hours of February 20-12, 1954, when
Eisenhower was purportedly on vacation in Palm Springs and “went missing.” The
next morning, at a church service in Los Angeles, reporters were told that the president
had required emergency dental treatment
from a local dentist after losing a tooth cap while eating fried chicken. The
dentist himself was presented at an official function that evening, seemingly
to solidify an apparent cover-up and keep the press in the dark.
“That missing night and morning,” Salla writes, “has
subsequently fueled rumors that Eisenhower was using the alleged dentist visit
as a cover story for an extraordinary event.”
The event is possibly “the most
significant that any American president could have conducted,” Salla’s paper
continues. “An alleged ‘first contact’ meeting with extraterrestrials at
Edwards Air Force Base
(previously Muroc Airfield)
and the beginning of a series of meetings with different extraterrestrial races
that led to a ‘treaty’ that was eventually signed.”
Salla then points to circumstantial evidence that the meeting
truly occurred. One of the most questionable aspects of situation has to do
with Eisenhower’s Palm Springs winter vacation itself, slated to run from
February 17-24. The vacation was announced rather suddenly and came less than a
week after Eisenhower’s “quail shooting” vacation in Georgia. This was most unusual.
On the night of February 20, when Eisenhower’s presence could
not be accounted for, the media began to wonder if he had taken ill or even
died. Eisenhower’s press secretary quickly convened a news conference and put
out the dentist story. During those hours, Eisenhower could easily have
traveled from Palm Springs to the nearby Muroc Airfield.
When one looks at the unscheduled nature of the president’s
vacation, the hours he was missing and the dentist cover story, a definite pattern emerges. Whatever was really
happening behind the scenes was not something that could be shared with the
PROVIDES AN EARLY PUBLIC SOURCE
Gerald Light, who was called a “gifted and highly educated
writer and lecturer, skilled in both clairvoyance and the occult,” sent a letter dated April 16, 1954, to
Meade Layne, who at the time was the director of Borderland Sciences Research Associates.
Light says he witnessed five separate
and distinct types of alien aircraft provided by ET’s Light called the
In the letter, Light claimed that he was
part of a delegation of community leaders invited to the meeting with
extraterrestrials at Muroc in order to test public reaction to the alien
presence. Also asked to attend were Hearst papers reporter Franklin Allen, Edwin
Nourse of the Brookings
Institute (who had been Harry Truman’s financial adviser), and Bishop MacIntyre
of Los Angeles.
After undergoing six hours of “vetting,” or extremely
detailed background checks,
the group was permitted to enter the “restricted section.”
“I had the distinct feeling,” Light writes, “that the world
had come to an end with fantastic realism. For I have never seen so many human
beings in a state of complete collapse and confusion, as they realized that their
own world had indeed ended with such finality as to beggar description.”
This is what the late Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack
called “ontological shock.” Mack coined the phrase to describe the feeling one
gets when first coming to realize the alien presence is undeniably real and
that a total restructuring of one’s former sense of reality is demanded. Light
seems to be describing that shaken state of mind in his letter, which points to
a consistency with what the UFO research of the ensuing decades would uncover.
“The reality of the ‘other plane’ aero-forms is now and
forever removed from the realms of speculation,” Light continued, “and made a
rather painful part of the consciousness of every responsible scientific and
Light says he was on the scene at Muroc for two days and
witnessed five separate and distinct types of alien aircraft being studied and
handled by Air Force officials with the permission and assistance of a group
Light calls the “Etherians.”
“I have no words to express my reactions,” he writes. “It has
finally happened. It is now a matter of history.”
Light mistakenly felt that
Eisenhower would ignore the conflicts going on between various officials behind
the scenes and present the situation to the public if the impasse continued
much longer. Salla notes that no such formal announcement was made and Light’s
meeting was either the best-kept secret of the 20th century or the fabrica
tion of an elderly mystic known for out-of-body experiences.
Meanwhile, Salla says there is a plausibility to the list of
those Light claimed had
joined him at the meeting in that they represented senior leaders of the
religious, spiritual, economic and newspaper communities. All of the invitees
were of advanced age and constituted a “wise man” group that would have
reflected the conservative nature of American society at the time.
ADDS ANOTHER LAYER OF CREDENCE
William Cooper was a highly
controversial whistleblower of great fame, though his statements would often be critically scrutinized and
attacked. As for his personal background, he said he served on the Naval Intelligence briefing team for
the Commander of the Pacific Fleet from 1970 to 1973 and therefore had access
to classified documents that he had to review in order to fulfil his briefing
According to Salas, Cooper describes the background and
nature of the “First Contact” thusly:
“In 1953, astronomers discovered large objects in space which
were moving toward the Earth. It was first believed that they were asteroids.
Later evidence proved that the objects could only be spaceships. When the
objects reached the Earth, they took up a very high orbit around the Equator.
There were several huge ships, and their actual intent was unknown.”
Operatives of Project Sigma, which worked to intercept radio
signals, and a new project, Plato, tasked with establishing diplomatic
relations with this race of space aliens, worked together to transmit radio
communications to the ships using the binary computer language. The U.S. was
thus able to arrange a landing that resulted in face-to-face contact with alien
beings from another planet. In the meantime, a race of human-looking aliens
also contacted the U.S. government.
“This alien group warned us against the aliens that were
orbiting the Equator and offered to help us with our spiritual development.
They demanded that we dismantle our nuclear weapons as the major condition.
They refused to exchange technology citing that we were spiritually unable to
handle the technology which we then possessed. They believed that we would use
any new technology to destroy each other.”
This race stated that:
*** We were on a path of self-destruction and we must stop
killing each other.
*** We must stop polluting the Earth.
*** We must stop raping the Earth’s natural resources.
*** We must learn to live in harmony.
Cooper writes that these terms were met with extreme
suspicion, especially the major condition of nuclear disarmament. It was
believed that meeting that condition would leave us helpless in the face of an
obvious alien threat. We also had no precedent in history to help in making the
decision. In any case, it was decided that nuclear disarmament was not in the
best interest of the United States. The aliens’ overtures were rejected.
“The significant point about Cooper’s version,” Salla writes,
“is that the humanoid extraterrestrial race was not willing to enter into
technology exchanges that might help weapons development and was instead
focused on spiritual development. Significantly, the overtures of these
extraterrestrials were turned down.”
In retrospect, it seems we said “no” to the good guys,
THE 1954 AGREEMENT WITH THE ALIENS
Did the aliens engage us early on,
insisting we sign a Treaty with them? If so, have they led us down the garden
A host of other whistleblowers, to include former CIA pilot
John Lear and former Master Sergeant Robert Dean (who, like Cooper, had access
to top secret documents) offer accounts of the Muroc meeting that agree on some
points and disagree on others,
In any case, Eisenhower’s February 1954 meeting was not
successful. After the failure of that first meeting, the president subsequently
met later that year with a race of large-nosed gray aliens who had been
orbiting the Earth before landing at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.
Eisenhower and/or members of his administration reached a
basic agreement with this second alien race. The ETs identified themselves as
originating from a planet in orbit around a red star in the Constellation of
Orion that we call Betelgeuse. They stated that their planet was dying and that
at some unknown future time they would no longer be able to survive there.
The treaty reached with this gray race stated that the aliens
would not interfere in our affairs and we would not interfere in theirs. We
would keep their presence on Earth a secret. They would furnish us with
advanced technology and would help us in our technological development.
They would not make a treaty with any other Earth nation.
They could abduct humans on a limited and periodic basis for
the purposes of medical examination and the monitoring of our development, with
the stipulation that the humans would not be harmed, would be returned to their
point of abduction, and would have no memory of the event. The alien nation
agreed to furnish a list of all human contacts and abductees on a regularly
Further testimony comes from yet another whistleblower, Phil
Schneider, a former geological engineer who was employed by corporations
contracted to build underground bases. Schneider worked extensively on black
projects involving extraterrestrials. He summarized what he knew about the
“Back in 1954, under the Eisenhower administration, the
federal government decided to circumvent the Constitution of the United States
and form a treaty with alien entities. It was called the 1954 Greada Treaty,
which basically made the agreement that the aliens involved could take a few
cows and test their implanting techniques on a few human beings but that they
had to give details about the people involved.”
This same pattern of testimony is also repeated by Don
Phillips, who served in the Air Force on various clandestine aviation projects.
He claims to have seen documents detailing the facts of Eisenhower’s meeting
with the aliens and the fact that some kind of treaty was later signed.
Meanwhile, the late Colonel Philip Corso, a highly decorated
officer who had served on Eisenhower’s National Security Council and decades
later authored the highly controversial book, “The Day After Roswell,”
characterized what had happened as a kind of “negotiated surrender” to the
aliens. Corso wrote in his memoirs that “They dictated the terms because they
knew what we most feared was disclosure.”
THE ALIENS PROVE UNTRUSTWORTHY
The whistleblowers also talked about the immediate aftermath
of the treaty.
“By 1955,” Cooper writes, “it became obvious that the aliens
had deceived Eisenhower and had broken the treaty. It was suspected that the
aliens were not submitting a complete list of human contacts and abductees and
it was further suspected that not all abductees had been returned.”
Lear says similarly, “We got something less than the
technology we bargained for and found the abductions exceeded by a million-fold
what we had naively agreed to.”
General Douglas MacArthur
In October 1955, General Douglas
MacArthur delivered a famous warning that suggested some extraterrestrial
presence existed that threatened human sovereignty.
“You now face a new world,” MacArthur said, “a world of
change. We speak in strange terms, of harnessing the cosmic energy, of ultimate
conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other
planetary galaxy. The nations of the world will have to unite, for the next war
will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the Earth must someday make a
common front against attack by people from other planets.”
MacArthur may well have been alluding to the same
extraterrestrials who allegedly made an agreement with Eisenhower. It is a public
acknowledgment, similar to Ronald Reagan’s “little green man” speech before the
United Nations in 1983, of an alien presence against whom the entire planet
must one day do battle. If the aliens did in fact renege on major parts of the
alleged treaty, MacArthur was perhaps acknowledging that we would eventually be
in a state of all-out war with them as a consequence.
“The uncertainty over the motivations and behavior of the
gray extraterrestrials,” Salla writes, “appears to have played a large role in
the government decision not to disclose the extraterrestrial presence and the
treaty Eisenhower had signed with them.”
Salla quotes from an “alleged official document” leaked to
UFO researchers that makes it a crime under the Espionage Act to disclose
classified information concerning extraterrestrials, punishable by up to ten
years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Which is sufficient to keep most former servicemen from
coming forward with what they know. The most common strategies for dealing with
former servicemen, corporate employees or witnesses brave or “foolish” enough
to reveal classified information is to intimidate, silence, eliminate or
discredit these individuals. This is accomplished by removing all public
records of the whistleblowers that would establish their identity as credible
sources. Such people could also be frightened into simply retracting what they
said or having their testimony distorted to the point where it ceases to have the
meaning the witness intended.
EISENHOWER AS THE “CONTACTEE” PRESIDENT
Returning to the subject of Eisenhower and the many alien
contact stories that are told about him, we next examine the writings of Canadian researcher Grant Cameron.
Cameron has specialized in the study of American presidents and their
interactions with the extraterrestrial presence for many years and has
cultivated a reputation for reliability and trustworthiness that has few equals
in the field of Ufology.
According to Cameron, Eisenhower’s attaining the rank of
five-star General made him accustomed to high-level secrets. This was clearly
evident in 1952, when Harry Truman gave the newly elected Eisenhower the
“comprehensive National Intelligence Digest prepared by the CIA,” which contained
“the most important national intelligence on a worldwide basis.” Eisenhower
would write in his memoirs a decade later that the intelligence digest added
little to his knowledge since he had already been privy to most of what it
“What may go down as the most contentious part of the
Eisenhower story,” Cameron writes, “is that Eisenhower had many rumored
encounters with UFOs and aliens. Eisenhower could thus be labeled the
Eisenhower was said to be onboard a nuclear aircraft carrier
in 1952 during a NATO exercise in which a large blue/white light appeared right
off the starboard bow. It descended to within a hundred feet above the water
and hovered as the ship moved past it before rising straight up into the air
and departing. Eisenhower told the crewmen to “forget about it for now.”
The ship in question was the U.S.S. Roosevelt. Cameron points
out that just as Roswell was the first air force base to handle nuclear
weapons, the U.S.S. Roosevelt was the first aircraft carrier to be armed with
nuclear weapons. There has been a generally acknowledged alien “interest” in
Earth’s nukes from the beginning of the modern day UFO phenomenon, and one is
reminded that the aliens who initially approached Eisenhower made dismantling our
nuclear arsenal a fundamental condition of any agreement that might be reached.
Cameron also comments on the 1954 Muroc story. Ever the
careful scholar, Cameron relates how the official records of the President’s
trip to Palm Springs are held at the Eisenhower library in Abilene, Kansas, and
have been reviewed by various researchers. An archivist at the library says
they receive so many requests on the subject that they have a person who
specializes in dealing with those particular documents.
“All researchers agreed on the basic story,” Cameron writes,
“that being on the evening of February 20, 1954, during a weeklong trip to Palm
Springs, Eisenhower disappeared from where he was staying at the Smoke Tree
Ranch compound, owned by his business friend, Paul Helms. The records do not
show how this disappearance became apparent to the press corps, but they did
figure out the president was gone. In fact, the Associated Press had already
gone on the wire with the story that the president had suffered a heart attack
and was dead. Minutes later, they withdrew the story.”
Press secretary James Haggerty hurried to meet with and calm
down the press with the aforementioned dentist visit story. The members of the
media accepted what they were told and the story disappeared completely when
Eisenhower was seen at church the next morning.
In his introduction to “America’s Top Secret Treaty With
Alien Life Forms,” Beckley grapples with
statements Eisenhower made to the American public shortly before turning over
the reins of government to John F. Kennedy – the well-known remarks on the
“In the councils of government,” Eisenhower said, “we must
guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or
unsought, by the military/industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous
rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight
of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should
take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel
the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense
with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper
If Eisenhower did have a prearranged,
clandestine meeting with aliens, what was the result of their conversation?
What were the discussions all about?
“To all the peoples of the world,” the
president continued, “I once more give expression to America’s prayerful and
continuing aspiration: We pray that peoples of all faiths, all races, all
nations, may have their great human needs satisfied; that those now denied
opportunity will come to enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom
may experience its spiritual blessings; that those who have freedom will
understand, also, its heavy responsibilities; that all who are insensitive to
the needs of others will learn charity; that the scourges of poverty, disease
and ignorance will be made to disappear from the Earth, and that, in the
goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed
by the binding force of mutual respect and love.”
The surprising candor of Eisenhower’s exit speech has long
placed it among the most important presidential utterances in American history.
But what motivated him to speak his dire warnings about a governmental
machinery he had himself been a leader of for decades?
“Certainly, these remarks serve to indicate,” Beckley writes,
“that something during his two terms of office had had a tremendous effect upon
a president who was a staunch conservative and a former general not known for
his sensitivity and enlightenment. What had impacted his conscience so much
that he would publicly ‘soften’ his views on a variety of topics? Could it have
been due to his rumored meeting with a group of Ultra-Terrestrials? And the
subsequent fact that these assemblages were never spoken about in public?
“Going a step further,” Beckley continues, “if Eisenhower did
have a prearranged, clandestine meeting with aliens, what was the result of
their conversation? What were the discussions all about? What future policies
might they have outlined? And, at the end of the meeting(s), did we simply shake
hands and say, ‘see you,’ as we walked away?
“There are some, including Commander X, the retired military
intelligence operative who supplied the majority of these pages, who say that
these conferences with Eisenhower led up to an actual agreement – AN INTERPLANETARY
TREATY – being ‘signed and sealed’ by both sides.”
On a personal note, the above-mentioned Commander X is a
mystery even to me. I have worked for Beckley (who has published numerous books
by Commander X) for more than twenty years and even I do not know who the
secretive author truly is. I’ve always conjured an image of an aging,
gray-haired, bearded figure bent over a typewriter while hiding in some
basement hovel in a major U.S. city and staying one step ahead of his former
intelligence community “handlers” as he churns out book after book on the
shadowy conspiracy that allegedly threatens us all. In his section of
“America’s Top Secret Treaty With Alien Life Forms,” Commander X provides an
insider’s perspective on the nature of official government dealings and
agreements with the aliens.
Is Commander X trustworthy? I would have to say he’s at least
as trustworthy as the next guy in this often confusing swirl of disinformation
and genuinely leaked “revelations.”
But whatever the details of this insidious treaty between the
U.S. and the extraterrestrials, no matter what was agreed to, what egregious
concessions were made, no matter who profited or was enriched, it is we who
will pay the final price of that ill-conceived diplomatic outreach to a dark
alien race from the stars.
