My friend Fred Burks wrote this article; I trust and respect his information.

Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell – the sixth man to walk on the moon – laid a bombshell on ABC News with the comment \"the UFO phenomenon is real\" last July. Yet why didn\'t other major media pick up on this fascinating story? Wouldn\'t the public be interested to know? Wouldn\'t you want to know?

The article on ABC\'s website leads with \"Of the more than 6 billion people in the world, only 12 have ever set foot on the moon.\" Edgar Mitchell is a member of that elite group of 12 space pioneers. Astronauts are some of the most highly trained and respected members of our society, yet the major media seems to feel that the comments on UFOs of this most esteemed American on the subject are not newsworthy.

There are a few exceptions, including the ABC News article mentioned. Below are key quotes from this excellent article on the revelations of Edgar Mitchell regarding UFOs.

NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, a member of the Apollo 14 mission that landed on the moon in 1971, elaborated on his own fluid thoughts on the universe, arguing that alien visits to Earth have been covered up by governments for more than 60 years.

\'I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real,\' Mitchell said. \'It has been covered up by governments for quite some time now,\' added Mitchell, who grew up in Roswell, N.M., the location of the controversial 1947 incident in which some believe the U.S. military covered up the crash scene of an alien spacecraft.

In fact Mitchell, pioneering founder and board member of the highly respected Institute of Noetic Sciences, has spoken out numerous times in a variety of major events about UFOs, yet received amazingly little coverage. The only other major media source to give significant coverage to Mitchell\'s intriguing claims to my knowledge is Larry King on CNN. In a fascinating interview with King last July, Mitchell talked about his experience with the famous Roswell incident in 1947.

All of my experience comes from what I call the old timers. Because I lived in the area ... and because I was an astronaut, some of them wanted to get it off their chest before they passed on. We knew many of the people, including the ranch where this was discovered, and in spite of all of the security oaths, the talk in the community was ... that it was an alien craft..

Nor is Mitchell alone among famous and respected people who have had experiences with UFOs. A quote from former CIA Director Admiral R.H. Hillenkoetter in a New York Times article dated Feb. 28, 1960 is quite revealing: \"It is time for the truth to be brought out in open Congressional hearings. Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel.\" Why was this quote buried on page L30 of the Times and not reported widely in other media at the time?

The U.K.\'s former Chief of Defense has also publicly stated, \"I have frequently been asked why a person of my background—a former Chief of the Defense Staff, a former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee—why I think there is a cover-up [of] the facts about UFOs. Governments fear that if they did disclose those facts, people would panic. I don’t believe that at all. I’ve said so in print. There is a serious possibility that we are being visited by people from outer space. It behooves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want.\" Why is the media paying so little attention to all of this?

We can be thankful to CNN\'s Larry King for being one of the few to break the silence on UFOs. Watch a fascinating five-minute segment of Edgar Mitchell discussing UFOs on CNN below.

And the Sci Fi channel, though not quite mainstream, has broadcast by far the best, most reliable documentary ever made on UFOs, Out of the Blue. It was one of the most popular programs to ever appear on the Sci Fi Channel. Watch it here.
