The above partial quote is by Ben R. Rich, former director of Lockheed's Skunk Works.
Ben R. Rich was director of the famous Lockheed Skunk Works from 1975 until 1991. Rich was born in Manila in June of 1925, and his parents emigrated to the United States in 1942, where he became a naturalized citizen. Shortly after receiving his engineering degree from UCLA, he was hired by Lockheed. By 1954 he began working on some extraordinary projects for Lockheed, including the SR-71 Blackbird, where he contributed to its success. Rich is regarded as the "father of stealth." He played the lead role in the design and development of the F-117 Stealth Fighter. Before his death of esophageal cancer in January 1995, Rich gave a speech at his alma mater in 1993, where he revealed some incredible information. Here is some of what he revealed to his audience.
"We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. ...Anything you can imagine we already know how to do."
Also, "We now have the technology to take ET home. No, it won't take someone's lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel among the stars."
This from the man who ran Lockheed's Skunk Works for sixteen years. What Ben Rich revealed is simply incredible. However, given his background and high credibility, it is difficult to dismiss his statements. If what Rich says is true, then we have been to Mars and perhaps all the planets in our solar system and their moons. Is that not a fascinating thought? According to some retired service members, the black projects have technology 50 to 100 years ahead of what we have in mainstream society. Here is another quote attributed to Ben Rich.
"Nearly all 'biomorphic' aerospace designs were inspired by the Roswell spacecraft..."
Perhaps you will remember Gary McKennon, a computer hacker and citizen of Great Britain who worked as a computer systems administrator. He successfully hacked into 96 US military and NASA computers from February 2001 to March 2002 before his arrest that same year. What he uncovered confirmed what Ben Rich was quoted as saying earlier. McKennon could hack into these computers relatively easily, finding they had no administrative password or firewall. In addition, the computers were left on during the night when no one was attending them, which allowed McKennon to look through their files unhindered. Although the U.S. government wanted him extradited to stand trial, the British government prevented that from happening.
What Gary McKennon discovered is extraordinary. McKennon claims to have found files on a secret project called "Solar Warden." A project which began in 1980 to supposedly protect Earth from alien beings who might wish us harm. The documents McKennon uncovered spoke of "non-terrestrial pilots," "ship-to-ship transfers," and "fleet-to-fleet transfers," and even gave the names and ranks of U.S. Air Force personnel who were pilots and crew members, as well as ship names. "Solar Warden" reportedly has spacecraft of enormous size, some as long as two football fields in length, plus an additional 43 smaller "scout ships" and other craft and beam weapons. All are alleged to have been reversed engineered from alien spacecraft. "Solar Warden" was under the US Naval Network and Space Operations Command (NNSOC), according to the documents McKennon read.
Whatever you may believe of Gary McKennon, his story does not conflict with what Ben Rich revealed to his alma mater in 1993. If the statements you have read here are factual, we have a space command with military personnel piloting spacecraft to distant stars and planets. The primary mission of "Solar Warden" is to protect Earth from alien beings. What do you believe their secondary mission might be? If I were in command of this space fleet, I would want to find habitable planets where we could start a new colony and a new civilization. Perhaps we already have colonies on distant planets revolving around a star light-years from Earth. Would you not love to know what their world is like? I certainly would!
