Aliens exist. There is an organization of aliens. The Israel and the US have been dealing with his organization. And President Donald Trump knows about this. These claims may all sound out of this world, but what lent the statements a measure of credence was the source —a retired Israeli general and professor who was the former head of Israel's space security program.
The 87-year-old Haim Eshed made the statements in an interview with Israeli media outlet Yediot Aharonot as quoted by The Jerusalem Post.
Eshed said the “Galactic Federation” already “includes a secret underground base on Mars, where there are American and alien representatives.”
Eshed further said that Trump was already “on the verge” of disclosing the issue but the Galactic Federation stopped him as “humanity is not ready yet.”
Trump last year signed a $738 billion spending bill that officially created the Space Force, which is the sixth branch of the U.S. Armed Services.
Eshed said he is revealing the information now as the academic landscape has already changed and how much he is respected now.
"If I had come up with what I’m saying today five years ago, I would have been hospitalized," he told Yediot.
“Today, they’re already talking differently. I have nothing to lose. I’ve received my degrees and awards; I am respected in universities abroad, where the trend is also changing."
Of course, it’s worth noting that the retired official did not offer any evidence during the interview.
In an NBC report, Nick Pope, who used to investigate UFOs for the British Ministry of Defense, described Eshed’s remarks as “extraordinary.”
“Either this is some sort of practical joke or publicity stunt to help sell his book, perhaps with something having been lost in translation, or someone in the know is breaking ranks,” he said.
In 2018, NASA said that “although we have yet to find signs of extraterrestrial life, NASA is amplifying exploring the solar system and beyond to help humanity answer whether we are alone in the universe.”
