    Maybe he's senile? Maybe he's telling the truth? I think I would be more comfortable knowing he's just crazy rather than the latter.

    So NASA admits that UFOs exist. Just that they aren't the ones who track them or do the cover up...'eh?

    Of course UFOs exist. They're Unidentified Flying Objects...

    By saying that NASA doesn't admit anything...they just say that they don't bother investigating claims of flying objects.

    Here's the problem I have with people claiming that the only reason we don't have proof of aliens is that it is covered up by the goverment. Is USA the only country these aliens visit? Other countries where the goverment might not be as likely to cover up any evidence never get visitors? Because if just one incontrovertible video or picture of alien life surfaced from ANY country, it would probably be enough to break the damn loose and get more things released that had been covered up. But I guess somehow all the governments of the world are all conspiring together to supress any and all evidence of extra-terrestrial life.

    So, what you are saying is that UFOs do exist, and NASA is claiming they are not a "Need to Know" agency that does the cover ups that Mitchell is talking about.

    Sure, I believe that UFOs exist. Lots of people see stuff flying in the sky that they can't identify. Now there could definitely be an agency out there that investigates these objects and possibly covers it up...but I don't think NASA said anything incriminating here, or even hinted at anything. They're way too smart for that.

    Now, if you're asking me if aliens exist...well sure, why not.

    I think Dr. Mitchell's oxygen supply must have been a little restricted on the moon or he spent too much time in the centrifuge.

    This is just not true. There have been lots of incidents in Russia, Brazil, Peru, Mexico among others. It's a fascination of mine.

    I think his point is, are all these other governments covering it up too?

    They said flat out that they are "<b>not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe.</b>." What else does that say other than they are covering up for another agency. I mean, why didn't they say "we know nothing of any alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe." Instead, they mentioned the aren't involved in the cover up.

    come on. it's in black and white. And you with Apollo in your name should defer to an Apollo 14 hero.

    The bird of prey is somewhere near San Fran, you can't see it cause it has a cloaking device.

    they are trying to get the whales out of the monterey aquarium and transport them back to the future.

    That quote is hardly damning...especially without the context in which it was asked.

    What if the question was "Former astronaut Dr. Mitchell claims that you are covering up the existence of UFOs, is that true?"

    That would be an appropriate answer. It really means nothing without hearing the question, and even if we did, it's still kinda stretching it to gather anything from it.

    UFO's do exist, otherwise everything you see flying in the sky would be easily identifiable. Extra-terrestrials on the other hand, do not exist.
