Why Did NASA Reject President Carter’s Request For UFO Investigation?
While most people remember that Democratic President Jimmy Carter witnessed a UFO when he was governor of Georgia, few remember his request for an investigation of UFOs being rejected by NASA when he took over the White House.
The Washington Post on Dec. 28, 1977 reported that NASA blatantly turned down Carter’s request for a probe into UFOs simply saying that such a study would be “wasteful and probably unproductive.”
The rejection letter to Carter’s request came from NASA’s administrator at the time Robert Frosch to the President’s then top science adviser Dr. Frank Press.
Carter and UFOs
In 1973, then Gov. Carter said he had seen a UFO in the form of a “glowing light” in the night sky.
“I don’t laugh at people anymore when they say they have seen UFOs because I’ve seen one myself,” Carter was quoted in saying.
However, after leaving the presidency when asked about his UFO experience, Carter has been reluctant to comment on them and minimized the event — as being no big deal.
I often wonder why? Perhaps Carter knows much more about UFOs today than he did before, and finds it wise not to talk about the subject.
