Overview

The UFO enigma has been part of our culture since the 1940s and building to a worldwide explosion of acceptance today. Now, as governments around the world open their files and records on internal UFO investigations, the US remains steadfast in its denial of interest in the UFO issue. As more of the world’s population accepts the possibility of an extraterrestrial presence, the demand is building for disclosure from the United States.

Using newly declassified and Freedom of Information Act documents, eyewitness accounts, interviews, and leaked documents being authenticated, THE PRESIDENTS AND UFOS details the secret history of UFOs and the corresponding presidential administration. Starting in 1941 with the Roosevelt administration, author Larry Holcombe examines the startling discoveries facing a president preoccupied by WWII, the explosion of UFO sightings during the Truman years, first contact during the Eisenhower administration, and the possibility of a UFO connection to the Kennedy assassination. In 1975, the Nixon administration came very close to admitting that UFOs exist by funding a documentary by Robert Emenegger. Almost 40 years later, this book will examine Emenegger’s findings.

For the first time, the involvement of all of the modern presidents up to and including President Obama, and the rise and then fall of their influence on UFO issues, are told in one story that is an integral part of the fascinating UFO tapestry.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
01/12/2015
Ufologist Holcomb, who has spent more than 50 years researching and compiling evidence of extraterrestrial activity, incorporates newly declassified Freedom of Information Act documents, copious eyewitness accounts, and the work of fellow ufologists into this detailed assessment. He frames his narrative according to presidential administrations, keeping an otherwise repetitive narrative moving. The basic story—a strange object is seen by civilians and/or the military, viewers are told to keep quiet as the story is debunked by the Air Force, additional details later leak out—is repeated ad infinitum and will be instantly recognizable to most readers. Holcomb’s inclusion of official documents lends his topic an elusive validation, adding weight to his story. There’s a cinematic undercurrent that runs through the book, most notably in the revelation that there was a CIA insider known as “the Caretaker” who briefed Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Reagan (and notably not Carter) on the topic of UFOs. According to the Caretaker, there were “four... races of extraterrestrials that visit Earth, one of which is considered hostile.” Frustratingly, Holcomb doesn’t reach any definitive conclusion on UFOs, but he raises many questions and offers plenty of evidence to keep fellow ufologists debating the topic for years to come.

Meet the Author

LARRY HOLCOMBE's introduction to the world of ufology came in the late 1950’s after reading Major Donald Keyhoe’s, Flying Saucers Are Real and Flying Saucers from Outer Space. These books started a 50 plus year study and avocation into mainstream research on the subject. His writing, speaking efforts and interviews now center on bringing light to bear on the continued United States denial and cover-up of UFO issues. He lives in Callao, Virginia.
