|I don't see any written evidence that we in the U.S.
were being 'attacked' by UFOs in the 40's, but I do see evidence that we
were afraid of them. Later evidence shows that Germany had knowledge of
UFOs way before we did in the U.S. Germany was way ahead of the U.S. in
shooting down UFOs and using the technology to try to win WWII.
I have yet to see any evidence of the reason why so many UFOs were
crashing. It seems rather iffy to think that UFOs flew to earth and then
couldn't handle flying in the air for whatever reason. Films/videos show
too much evidence that they have excellent control over their vehicles,
and their vehicles weren't of the caliber of our first meager efforts to
fly in planes made of bicycle parts and balsa wood.. Their vehicles were
made of such technology that we couldn't even figure out what they were
made of, nor how they were flown. The evidence shows that they were
caught in lightening storms and were shot down by the military in
Germany and the U.S.
The Apollo program was instituted because of the fear that a
military base was going to be established on the far side of the moon
and whoever got there first, whether human (Russia) or the
extraterrestrials, who we were in dire fear of, would be in control of
earth. No matter what the cost, either in dollars or lives, the U.S. had
to win that race to the dark side of the moon.
By then, Germany had lost WWII and we were now on even footing
with Russia as far as brains go. At the end of WWII, Russia got half of
the brains out of Germany, and the U.S. got the other half. Perhaps
knowing what we know now, we should have demanded all the brains, but we
didn't. Through what we called Operation Paperclip, we got some
characters (Nazi's if you will) who were responsible for killing
millions of people. That was the level of our desperation.
The U.S. Military rounded up Nazi scientists and brought them to
America. It had originally intended merely to debrief them and send them
back to Germany. But when it realized the extent of the scientists
knowledge and expertise, the War Department decided it would be a waste
to send the scientists home. Following the discovery of flying discs
(foo fighters), particle/laser beam weaponry in German military bases,
the War Department decided that NASA and the CIA must control this
technology, and the Nazi engineers that had worked on this technology.
There was only one problem: it was illegal. U.S. law explicitly
prohibited Nazi officials from immigrating to America--and as many as
three-quarters of the scientists in question had been committed Nazis.
Military Intelligence "cleansed" the files of Nazi references. By 1955,
more than 760 German scientists had been granted citizenship in the U.S.
and given prominent positions in the American scientific community. Many
had been longtime members of the Nazi party and the Gestapo, had
conducted experiments on humans at concentration camps, had used slave
labor, and had comitted other war crimes.
Here are some more notable ones:
During the war, Rudolph was operations director of the Mittelwerk
factory at the Dora-Nordhausen concentration camps, where 20,000 workers
died from beatings, hangings, and starvation. Rudolph had been a member
of the Nazi party since 1931; a 1945 military file on him said simply:
"100% Nazi, dangerous type, security threat..!! Suggest internment."
WERNHER VON BRAUN;
From 1937 to 1945, von Braun was the technical director of the
Peenemunde rocket research center, where the V-2 rocket --which devasted
England--was developed. As noted previously, his dossier was rewritten
so he didn't appear to have been an enthusiastic Nazi.
Von Braun worked on guided missles for the U.S. Army and was later
director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. He became a celebrity
in the 1950s and early 1960s, as one of Walt Disney's experts on the
"World of Tomorrow." In 1970, he became NASA's associate administrator.
A high-ranking Nazi scientist, Blome told U.S. military interrogators in
1945 that he had been ordered 1943 to experiment with plague vaccines on
concentration camp prisoners. He was tried at Nuremberg in 1947 on
charges of practicing euthanasia (extermination of sick prisoners), and
conducting experiments on humans. Although acquitted, his earlier
admissions were well known, and it was generally accepted that he had
indeed participated in the gruesome experiments. Two months after his
Nuremberg acquittal, Blome was interviewed at Camp David, Maryland,
about biological warfare. In 1951, he was hired by the U.S. Army
Chemical Corps to work on chemical warfare. His file neglected to
MAJOR GENERAL WALTER SCHREIBER;
The US military tribunal at Nuremberg heard evidence that "Schreiber had
assigned doctors to experiment on concentration camp prisoners and had
made funds available for such experimentation." The assistant prosecutor
said the evidence would have convicted Schreiber if the Soviets, who
held him from 1945 to 1948, had made him available for trial. Again,
Schreiber's Paperclip file made no mention of this evidence; the project
found work for him at the Air Force School of Medicine at Randolph Field
in Texas. When columnist Drew Pearson publicized the Nuremberg evidence
in 1952, the negative publicity led the JIOA, says Hunt, to arrange "a
visa and a job for Schreiber in Argentina, where his daughter was
living." On May 22, 1952, he was flown to Buenos Aires.
HERMANN BECKER-FREYSING and SIEGFRIED RUFF;
These two, along with Blome, were amoung the 23 defendants in the
Nuremberg War Trials "Medical Case." Becker-Freysing was convicted and
sentenced to 20 years in prison for conducting experiments on Dachau
inamtes, such as starving them, then force-feeding them seawater that
had been chemically altered to make it drinkable. Ruff was acquitted (in
a close decision) on charges that he had killed as many as 80 Dachau
inmates in a low-pressure chamber designed to simulate altitudes in
excess of 60,000 feet. Before their trial, Becker-Freysing and Ruff were
paid by the Army Air Force to write reports about their grotesque
GENERAL REINHARD GEHLEN;
It was five years after the end of WW2 but one of Hitler's chief
intelligence officers was still on the job. From a walled-in compound in
Bavaria, General Reinhard Gehlen oversaw a vast network of intelligence
agents spying on Russia. His top aides were Nazi zealots who had
committed some of the most notorious crimes of the war. Gehlen and his
SS united were hired, and swiftly became agents of the CIA when they
revealed their massive records on the Soviet Union to the US. Gehlen
derived much of his information from his role in one of the most
terrible atrocities of the war: the torture, interrogation and murder by
starvation of some four million Soviet prisoners. Prisoners who refused
to cooperate were often tortured or summarily executed. May were
executed even after they had given information, while others were simply
left to starve to death. As a result, Gehlend and members of his
organization maneuvered to make sure they were captured by advancing
American troops rather than Russians, who would have executed them
immediately. With the encouragement of the CIA, Gehlen Org (Licio Gelli)
set up "rat lines" to get Nazi war criminals out of Europe so they
wouldn't be prosecuted. By setting up transit camps and issuing phony
passports, the Gehlen Org helped more than 5,000 Nazis leave Europe and
relocate around the world, especially in South and Central America.
Known as the Nazi butcher of Lyons, France during World War 2, Barbie
was part of the SS which was responsible for the and death of thousands
of French people under the Germany occupation.
Some of Rupp's best work was done for the CIA, after he was imported in
Operation Paperclip. Rupp has been convicted of bank fraud. He was an
operative for the CIA and is deeply involved in the Savings and Loan
scandals. A federal jury has indicated they believe testimony that Rupp,
the late CIA Director William Casey - then Reagan's campaign manager,
and Donald Gregg, now U.S. Ambassador to South Korea, flew with George
Bush to Paris in 1980, during the election in which Bush was on the
ticket with Ronald Reagan. The testimony states that three meetings were
held on October 19 and 20 at the Hotel Florida and Hotel Crillion. The
subject? According to the court testimony, the meetings were to sabotage
President Jimmy Carter's reelection campaign by delaying the release of
American hostages in Iran. The hostages were released on January 20,
1981, right after Reagan and Bush were sworn into office. Iran was
promised return of its frozen assets in the United States and the
foundation for the Iran- Contra deal was set into motion.
Head of a 2400 member secret Masonic Lodge, P2, a neo-fascist
organization, in Italy that catered to only the elite, Gelli had high
connections in the Vatican, even though he was not a Catholic. P2's
membership is totally secret and not even available to its Mother Lodge
in England. Gelli was responsible for providing Argentina with the
Exocet missile. He was a double agent for the CIA and the KGB. He
assisted many former Nazi high officials in their escape from Europe to
Central America. He had close ties with the Italian Mafia. Gelli was a
close associate of Benito Mussolini. He was also closely affiliated with
Roberto Calvi, head of the scandal-ridden Vatican Bank. Calvi was
murdered. Gelli's secret lodge consisted of extremely important people,
including armed forces commanders, secret service chiefs, head of
Italy's financial police, 30 generals, eight admirals, newspaper
editors, television and top business executives and key bankers -
including Calvi. Licio Gelli and others in P2 were behind the
assassination of Pope John Paul 1. While on one hand, the U.S.
participated in the war crime tribunals of key Nazi officials and
maintained an alliance with the Communist Soviet Union, secretly, the
U.S. was preparing for the cold war and needed the help of Nazis in the
eventual struggle the U.S. would have with the Soviet Union. Gelli's
agreement with U.S. intelligence to spy on the Communists after the war
was instrumental in saving his life. He was responsible for the murder
and torture of hundreds of Yugoslavian partisans.
Project Paperclip was stopped in 1957, when West Germany protested to
the U.S. that these efforts had stripped it of "scientific skills."
There was no comment about supporting Nazis. Paperclip may have ended in
1957, but as you can see from Licio Gelli and his international dealings
with the CIA in Italy/P2, and Heinrich Rupp with his involvement in
October Surprise, the ramifications of Paperclip are world-wide. The
Nazis became employed CIA agents, engaging in clandestine work with the
likes of George Bush, the CIA, Henry Kissenger, and the Masonic P2
lodge. This is but one of the results of Operation Paperclip. Another
umbrella project that was spawned from Paperclip was MK-ULTRA.
So, there are a few choice personnel who helped the U.S. to go to the
moon in the Apollo project. If you think by now that we were just
kidding around, you need to re-read the above until you realize that we
meant business. We were going to win the cold war, get control of the
world whether against the Russians and/or the extraterrestrials or both.
To be honest ... it was more against the extraterrestrials than the
Russians, but the Russians provided the excuse the U.S. needed so that
we didn't have to admit that Roswell was about a real crashed UFO. That
kind of knowledge was kept from the Americans who were deemed to be too
emotional and panicky, and would get out of control to know that the
whole history they believed in was a lie. And that includes their
Wernher Von Braun was one of the world's first and foremost rocket
engineers and a leading authority on space travel. His will to expand
man's knowledge through the exploration of space led to the development
of the Explorer satellites, the Jupiter and Jupiter-C rockets, Pershing,
the Redstone rocket, Saturn rockets, and Skylab, the world's first space
station. Additionally, his determination to "go where no man has gone
before" led to mankind setting foot on the moon.
Living in Huntsville, Alabama from 1950 to 1970, Dr. von Braun
first directed the technical development of the U.S. Army's ballistic
missile program at Redstone Arsenal, and later served as Director of
NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. When he transferred to Washington,
D.C., he left Huntsville with a rich legacy: the research institutions
at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, the Alabama Space and Rocket
Center, and the Von Braun Civic Center.
He enrolled at the Berlin Institute of Technology in 1930. In
1932, at the age of 20, he received his bachelor's degree in mechanical
engineering, and was offered a grant to conduct and develop scientific
investigations on liquid-fueled rocket engines. Two years later, Wernher
received his PhD in physics from the University of Berlin.
During the 30's the German military was searching for a weapon
which would not violate the Versailles Treaty of World War I, and at the
same time defend Germany. By 1934 von Braun and Walter Dornberger had a
team of 80 engineers building rockets in Kummersdorf, about 60 miles
south of Berlin. Von Braun's natural talents as a leader shone, as well
as his ability to assimilate great quantities of data while keeping in
mind the big picture. With the successful launch of two rockets, Max and
Moritz, in 1934, von Braun's proposal to work on a jet-assisted take-off
device for heavy bombers and all-rocket fighters was granted. However,
Kummersdorf was too small for the task, so a new facility had to be
By now Hitler had taken over Germany and Herman Goering ruled the
Luftwaffe. Dornberger held a public test of the A-2 which was greatly
successful. Funding continued to flow to von Braun's team, developing
the A-3 and finally the A-4.

which overnight, eliminates power of Political Parties, State
Institutions and Trade Unions while also
extinguishing the personal liberty of every citizen of the Reich.

of advanced Luftwaffe aircraft begins at underground research
facilities: Reineckendorf, Kummeradorf and Thuringia.

1939 - World War 2 begins. Nazi Alien technology compromised by
necessity for jet propulsion,
which keeps gravitational R&D effort in labs for duration of war.
1941 - German underground excavation begins in Antarctica.
In 1943 Hitler decided to use the A-4 as a "vengeance weapon," and
the group found themselves developing the A-4 to rain explosives on
London. Fourteen months after Hitler ordered it into production, the
first combat A-4, now called the V-2, was launched toward western Europe
on September 7, 1944. When the first V-2 hit London von Braun remarked
to his colleagues, "The rocket worked perfectly except for landing on
the wrong planet."
The SS and the Gestapo arrested von Braun for crimes against the
state because he persisted in talking about building rockets which would
go into orbit around the Earth and perhaps go to the Moon. His crime was
indulging in frivolous dreams when he should have been concentrating on
building bigger rocket bombs for the Nazi war machine. Dornberger
convinced the SS and the Gestapo to release von Braun because without
him there would be no V-2 and Hitler would have them all shot.
On arriving back at Peenemunde, von Braun immediately assembled
his planning staff and asked them to decide how and to whom they should
surrender. Most of the scientists were frightened of the Russians, they
felt the French would treat them like slaves, and the British did not
have enough money to afford a rocket program. That left the Americans.
After stealing a train with forged papers, von Braun led 500 people
through war-torn Germany to surrender to the Americans. The SS were
issued orders to kill the German engineers, who hid their notes in a
mine shaft and evaded their own army while searching for the Americans.
Finally, the team found an American private and surrendered to him.
Realizing the importance of these engineers, the Americans immediately
went to Peenemunde and Nordhausen and captured all of the remaining
V-2's and V-2 parts, then destroyed both places with explosives. The
Americans brought over 300 train car loads of spare V-2 parts to the
United States. Much of von Braun's production team was captured by the
On June 20, 1945, U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull approved
the transfer of von Braun's German rocket specialists. This transfer was
known as Operation Paperclip because, of the large number of Germans
stationed at Army Ordnance, the paperwork of those selected to come to
the United States were indicated by paperclips.
They arrived in the United States at New Castle Army Air Base,
just south of Wilmington, DE. Afterwards, they were flown to Boston, and
then taken by boat to an Army Intelligence Service post at Fort Strong
in Boston Harbor. Later, with the exception of von Braun, the men were
transferred to Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland to sort out the
Peenemunde documents. Those documents would enable the scientists to
continue their rocketry experiments where they had left off.
Finally, von Braun and the 126 Peenemunders were transferred to
their new home at Fort Bliss, Texas, a large Army installation just
north of El Paso, under the command of Major James P. Hamill. They found
themselves in a strange situation as they began their new lives in
America. Because they could not leave Fort Bliss without a military
escort, they sometimes referred to themselves as "PoPs", Prisoners of
While at Fort Bliss, they were tasked to train military,
industrial, and university personnel in the intricacies of rockets and
guided missiles and to help refurbish, assemble, and launch a number of
V-2's that had been shipped from Germany to the White Sands Proving
Grounds in New Mexico. Further, they were to study the future potential
of rockets for military and research applications.

the Anglo-Canadian development of very advanced German projects, namely
the circular unmanned crafts "Feuerball" and "Kugelblitz". Both of them
were in the prototype stage and maybe they were even flown-tested just
at the end of the war. Vesco and his impressive documentation have been
often used by many later authors in order to try to substantiate their
The first book of Renato Vesco was published in 1968, but the original
manuscript was ready since 1956. Because of job engagements he stopped
its publication and went on collecting more material. So he had enough
material to write three large books.
The first one had a Spanish edition and two in US (1971, Grove and 1974,
Zebra), soon becoming a reference work for most but all the authors and
researchers writing about the highly controversial subject of German
"flying saucers". In 1994, the book was nearly fully reprinted within a
book edited by D.Childress "Man-Made UFOs 1944-1994".
is the second Vesco book.
The author was born in Arona in 1924. He died in November 1999 in Genoa,
the town where he had been living for many years. Since some years he
was writing a new manuscript to publish a fourth "ultimate" book. The
huge archive of Vesco has been retrieved safely and now preserved from
destruction. The inventory should allow to find and evaluate some of the
original sources used by the author.
third book by Renato Vesco is a thick 553-page volume loaded with a real
wealth of info. On the ground of some late war German projects
(including the Norvegian-based development of the original Belluzzo's
blueprints and the German atom bomb project) and post-war British
breakthroughs in aeronautics and astronautics, he pointed out a
fascinating but hard-to-believe scenario.
British spaceships had been built after blueprints and technology
captured in Germany and flown since 1947. In 1951 they landed on the
Moon and in 1954 they reached Mars. Though these claims look quite
unlikely and unsubstantiated, most of the evidence and sources offered
by Vesco lead to some interesting considerations about German secret
technology and some late '40s and '50s UFO sightings.

published news about soon-to-come man-made "flying saucers". Vesco found
in these rumours more background for his theory.
