A former U.S. government consultant, who will likely never get such a job again, is making wild claims that former President Eisenhower met with space aliens during his time in office.
The Daily Mail reports that a man named Timothy Good, who has consulted with Congress and the Pentagon, was appearing on a British television show chatting about creatures from outer space when he dropped the bombshell.
"Well, certainly I can tell you that in 1954, President Eisenhower had three encounters, set up meetings with aliens, which took place at certain Air Force bases including Holloman Air Force base in New Mexico," Good claimed.
Good said there were "many witnesses" to the meetings and that at one of them, Eisenhower signed some sort of agreement with a space race called the "Alien Greys."
The newspaper writes that Ike "is known to have had a strong belief in life on other planets."
Good said Eisenhower is not the only person to have had a close encounter.
"Aliens have made both formal and informal contact with thousands of people throughout the world from all walks of life," he said, adding, "We know that up to 90% of all UFO reports can be explained in conventional terms. However, I would say millions of people worldwide have actually seen the real thing."
