He has BS and MS degrees in Physics from University of Chicago. As a nuclear physicist for a number of major corporations and military contractors, he worked on secret projects to build nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets, and nuclear power plants to be used in outer space. He was the first civilian to investigate the Roswell UFO incident and has since become known as the Father of Roswell and the Flying Saucer Physicist. Is this enough to believe Stanton T. Friedman when he gives this kind of warning to his fellow Earthlings?

I think they are here. I think they are here to quarantine us, keep us from going out there. With our track record – we're evil.

Uh-oh. In a new interview, Stanton Friedman addresses the recent Wikileaks releases of formerly-classified CIA documents on UFO sightings around the world. He believes these documents should tell everyone else what he already knows.

We have enough to prove without a shadow of a doubt that Planet Earth is being visited [by aliens].

Do we? Even if the redacted portions of those documents were revealed, it doesn’t seem they contain the “beyond a shadow of a doubt” missing link. Perhaps he’s implying that someone or some organization is keeping that crucial piece of information from us.

This is kept from people because who would want the world in upheaval? There would be mass panic and distress.

He’s right about that. Just the announcement of a potential big snowstorm can cause mass panic. Imagine what a prediction of a 50% chance of alien encounters would do. But this time, Friedman reveals that it’s not governments that are keeping the truth from us, it’s the aliens already on Earth themselves.

If they (the aliens) want to make themselves known, it's easy - they will.

How much more evil do we have to get for this to happen? Are they secretly sabotaging space travel already? Elon Musk might think so after the problems SpaceX has encountered. Or perhaps they have infiltrated the space program and stopped the return of humans to the moon and any exploration beyond. Is Friedman warning the current administration and private space corporations to back off on going to Mars? Or is he predicting a military conflict that will be caused by the first verified revelation that a nation has reverse-engineered alien technology?

The first country to replicate [alien] technology will rule the roost if they can build it. It's political too - the US says 'are we ready to put out anything if the Russians don't or the Chinese don't.

Would that trigger a war? Probably. Would it trigger the alien “quarantine” Friedman warns about? Who knows? What would that look like? Armed aliens guarding all of the world’s major launch pads? A Dyson sphere around the planet to keep us in?

Friedman has a long history with military and government contractors and in the field of ufology. Is it time for doubters to start listening to him a little more closely?
