    Default Diplomatic Documents revealed by Wikileaks highlight the UN's intention to set up a research committee on UFOs.

    These archives, made public in 2016 by Wikileaks, show that the United Nations seriously considered in 1978 the creation of a committee of inquiry into unidentified flying objects (UFOs) before the project was abandoned for lack of agreement .

    Eric Gairy, then prime minister of the island of Granada, in the Caribbean, was at the origin of this initiative.

    According to one of the published diplomatic cables, US officials were humorous about the idea put forward by Gairy, referring to his "blitzkrieg project presentation," which would include a team of supporters ranging from scientist to astronaut, Supplemented by a Hollywood production team. "

    It should be noted that until 1974, Granada was still a British colony and that the United Kingdom was not adept at the remarks of Gairy, recently elected.

    On the picture : Astronaut Colonel Gordon Cooper, astronomer Jacques Vallee, astronomer / astrophysicist Claude Poher, astronomer J. Allen Hynek, Prime Minister of Grenada Sir Eric Gairy, Waldheim, Morton Gleisner of the Special Political Committee, and Lee Speigel. Speigel produced and hosted nearly 1,500 programs on unexplained phenomena over an eight-year period at NBC Radio, and previously worked at Westwood One Radio and ABCNews.com. He is the only person in history to produce, in 1978, a major presentation at the United Nations on the subject of UFOs. http://www.leespeigel.com/

    Not only through Wikileaks, but through many public documents, it is a historical fact that Sir Eric Gairy, the prime minister of Grenada, spent several years trying to get the United Nations to study the U.F.O. phenomena on an international level. Grenada was a "hotspot" that had many sightings. Gairy began to bring up the topic at the U.N. in 1975. In April 1977 he attend the "First UFO World Congress" in Acapulco, one of the only heads of state to do so where a unanimous resolution was passed to bring this issue to the U.N.

    In October of 1977 he made his formal request on the U.N.'s General Assembly Floor to create a department of the U.N. to study U.F.O.s. Back in Grenada, these stamps were issued to commemorate the event:

    On November 27th, 1978, the formal presentation was made on the General Assembly floor. The presenters included Jacques Vallee, astronomer/astrophysicist Claude Poher, J. Allen Hynek, Lee Speigel, Leonard Stringfield, and psychologist David Saunders.

    The initiative is known as "Agenda Item #126" which was summarized:

    Quote Establishing of an Agency or a Department of the United Nations for Undertaking, Co-ordinataing and Disseminating the Results of Research into Unidentified Flying Objects and related phenomena.

    The following March Eric Gairy returned to New York and the day he was going to meet Kurt Waldheim, the UN Secretary-General , a coup broke out in Grenada. Since he was out of power, Gairy could no longer represent Grenada at the U.N. and the issued died. There seemed to be some concerted efforts to kill the issue, especially by Great Britain.

    New British documents show UK attempted to derail UN UFO initiative

    What the Wikileaks documents show is that the U.S. was REALLY, REALLY interested in this proceeding and was planning some response.

    Gairy was in exile in the U.S.A. from 1979 until 1984, after the U.S.A. invade the island of Grenada and removed it's Marxist government. He lived much of that time in San Diego, where he met Wes Bateman. Bateman was a contactee, and some of the scriptwriters who were working on Gene Roddenberry's "Star Trek" would go to his meetings, where they got the idea for warp drive, worm holes, cloaking devices, and the Prime Directive.

    In 2008, Bateman wrote about their relationship. It's quite a story.

    Sir Eric Gairy and His E.T. Secret By Wesley H. Bateman
    Source: UFODigest.Com URL: http://www.ufodigest.com/news/0308/gairy.html

    Sir Eric M. Gairy, Prime Minister and Minister for External Affairs of the Caribbean Island nation of Grenada, spoke before the United Nations, General Assembly, Thirty-Third Session, 32nd Plenary Meeting, on Thursday, 12 October 1978.

    The key points of Sir Eric's U.N. speech, which are relative to this article, are quoted below an underlined.

    182: "During our four years of membership in the United Nations we have raised many matters of importance and some of which have been considered innovative, others were current and regular but our views ushered in new thoughts about them, thoughts that aroused new vistas in an attempt to tackle traditional thought-patterns. And still further we have been introducing some very thought-provoking subjects of world importance and world concern, subjects considered by some to be strange and extraneous, but which we feel are sufficiently important and significant to merit our constant articulation and review of them, however and whenever the opportunity permits. Permit me to refer to only a few: the question of women's rights, the universality of God, economic cruelty, the problems of man and his environment, disarmament, man and his material and spiritual behavior, the Bermuda Triangle, unidentified flying objects and extraterrestrial phenomena, decolonization and territorial integrity, human rights, and undue solace given to terrorists."

    It is reported that prior to returning home to Grenada Sir Eric visited with President Jimmy Carter, during which they discussed their individual UFO sighting experiences and the pending U.N. resolution. It is also reported that Zbigniew Brzezinski attended this meeting.

    Sir Eric returned to New York City on March 12, 1979 to meet with the then Secretary General of the United Nations, Kurt Walheim. The official purpose of this meeting was to discuss the fact that on December 18, 1978, the United Nations General Assembly voted to approve decision 33/426, inviting U.N. Member States "to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects, and to inform the Secretary-General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities." The United States was the sole U.N. member nation, which unsuccessfully attempted to block that 1978 UN E.T. resolution.

    The efforts made by the United States to block this United Nations resolution was by exerting various forms of pressure on a number of other member nations. On the very day that Sir Eric was to visit with Kurt Walheim and discuss the UFO resolution, it was learned that a Cuban sponsored Marxist group, known as the New Jewel Movement (NJM), had overthrown him and his government. The NJM was led by a young attorney named Maurice Bishop, who along with 46 others planned and executed the coup using weapons smuggled into Grenada in a barrel of petroleum jelly.

    At this point Sir Eric was stranded in the United States, during which he lived in New York City and spent considerable time broadcasting anti-Cuban and anti-Communist radio messages from station WLIB, to listeners on Grenada and the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago. During his stay in New York Sir Eric was under constant US Government surveillance.

    Maurice Bishop and the NJM responded to Sir Eric's radio messages with some radio messages of their own. Other than trying to hang charges of corruption on him and his cabinet members they concentrated on destroying Sir Eric's character in particular. They emphasized that a search of Sir Eric's home brought to light physical evidence that he practiced "Voodoo." They also said that they learned that he arranged and participated in sexual orgies during which drugs were used. They also said that his declared belief in the reality of UFOs was just another piece of evidence that proved beyond all possible doubt that he was mentally defective.

    Oblivious to what was going on the Island of Grenada at the time, I was living in the community of Mira Mesa, which was located a few miles north of San Diego, California. At the time I was director of the "Molecular Energy Research Institute" which was engaged in the construction of a device intended to extract entrapped crude oil from tar sands and shale rock. Our office and laboratories were located directly across the roadway from the "Miramar Naval Air Station."

    I remember that it was a Monday morning when Don B..... came into the office filled with excitement. Don was in the public relations business and also managed the funds, which a Canadian oil company had invested in our project. As a sideline Don also restored classic cars (a subject that will be mention again).

    Don started our conversation with the question: "Do you know Sir Eric Gairy?" My answer was "no." The name was slightly familiar, but I had no idea who Don was talking about.

    Don went on to explain how he on occasion attended meetings of a group calling itself the "Dilettantes. The group met once a week in La Jolla, California to delve briefly into subjects such as French cooking, art, travel destinations, and even UFOs. The subject of UFOs was one they just could not leave alone; an UFOs were the subject of the previous Friday night meeting that Don attended.

    Don went on to say that Sir Eric Gary, the recently deposed Prime Minister of the Caribbean Island of Grenada was also present at the meeting. Sir Eric asked the host if he could address the group and obtained immediate permission to do so.

    Sir Eric first asked the group if any one of them could help him locate any of the people he had listed on a sheet of paper. Don said that he could have fainted when the first name Sir Eric read from his list was mine.

    Don was quick to tell Sir Eric that he knew me personally and could arrange for us to meet.

    That afternoon I met Sir Eric Gairy in Don B.....'s Point Loma home that was on a hillside that overlooked the Pacific Ocean.

    Sir Eric first informed me that he preferred to be addressed as Doctor Gairy.

    Dr. Gairy was accompanied by a young African American minister (who's name I can not recall). I really can't remember anything the young man might have said. I did become aware that Dr. Gairy was the Reverend's houseguest. Both of these gentlemen were well mannered and very well dressed.

    This meeting was one of many that Dr. Gary and I had over the following two weeks. Some times we met as much as two times a day either at Don B..... house, at the Molecular Energy offices and at various restaurants for lunch or dinner.

    Eventually Dr. Gairy's companion (the young minister) disappeared and Scot ..... (a friend of mine) or Jennifer B..... (Don B.....'s daughter) became Dr. Gairy's chauffeurs and tour guides. They escorted Dr. Gairy to the Zoo, Sea World and the Ruben H. Fleet Space Center.

    I learned from Scot that Dr. Gairy had rented a studio apartment in a very run down part of San Diego and was definitely being followed about by what appeared to be government agents. A number of articles written about Dr. Gairy, all make the point that he was under constant government surveillance when he lived in New York and in San Diego.

    On one occasion we went to an early lunch at a restaurant that was located on a pier. In our party was Dr, Gairy, Don B...., his daughter Jennifer, Scot and myself. With in minutes 5 young men in black business suits joined us. Each took individual tables, which surrounded us. That is none of them sat together

    In the course of our conversation the relative locations of Grenada and the Panama Canal came up. The room, which was silent, to begin with, suddenly got even quieter. Dr. Gairy gave me a knowing glance and moved his eyes from side to side to alert me. The conversation was immediately changed to the bird life of San Diego and Grenada.

    When we left, we were sure to take some pieces of bread to feed the sea gulls that were waiting patiently on the railing of the deck outside the restaurant. Scot, Jennifer and Dr. Gairy walked down the deck and out of sight. Don and I had parked one of his restored classic cars in another parking area. From our position we watched as one of the "men in black" who was in the restaurant came out and hurried after Dr. Gairy and the others.

    Don and I watched as the other 4 men in black came out of the restaurant together and got in to an older model car that had at least 50 antennas placed on the roof, fenders and trunk of the vehicle.

    I quickly scribbled a note to Don, which said: "The car could be bugged." With in 3 days of the event Don was able to sell the car along with any electronic bugs the men in black might have planted.

    Finally one afternoon Dr. Gairy came to the Molecular Energy offices, I sent for some sandwiches from a near by delicatessen. This was the first time we were able to get together privately. Dr. Gairy looked at me smiled and said: "Any questions?"

    I inquired as to what happened to the young minister who he was with when we first met. With no hesitation Dr, Gairy told me that the "young man felt that his wife was becoming infatuated with him and they mutually agreed it was best for Sir Eric to find another place to live." He added that the whole thing was simply in the young man's mind."

    My next question was: Where did he learn of me and my interest in UFOs? He said, "after a number of UFO sightings that were reported though out the island of Grenada, he put out the word that he wanted to talk to anyone that had any knowledge of UFOs or intelligent extraterrestrial life. From this search, a woman contacted him that claimed she had telepathic contact with extraterrestrials. She gave him the list of names he should contact for more information. When he mentioned that he wanted to learn as much as possible from me about the "Frequency Barrier" I knew Dr. Gairy was seriously trying to solved the UFO mystery.

    Dr. Gairy went on to tell me that he always believed that UFOs were extraterrestrial space craft, but he had very little time to study the subject. The Grenada sightings force him give the subject his full attention. The question in his mind was: What interest could any extraterrestrial race have in the island of Grenada? If they made an open physical contact by landing on the island, how was he going to deal with them? His advisors were at a total loss as to what should be done.

    Dr. Gairy owned a string of restaurants on the island. Nightly he could be found at the "Evening Palace" one of his night clubs at Morne Rouge above the western point of a five-mile white sand beach. From this club it is said Sir Eric conducted business like a small town American Mayor, who also owned the local hardware store.

    It said that for a fee or a bottle or two of champagne a person could sit with the Prime Minister and present him with a petition or complaint.

    Dr. Gairy confirmed this story to me about his nightly audiences at the "Evening Palace." For as he said, "it was during an late evening at this night club that a fisherman from the north east coast of Grenada came to him with a story that would change his life forever." With in minutes of hearing the fisherman's story, he put together a group of people he trusted, a small military unit with two trucks, and a photographer.

    They followed the fisherman north and arrived at the coast just before dawn. There they met with two other fishermen that were standing guard over a tarp-covered object. The tarp was removed to reveal a giant human body that was between 7 1/2 to 8 feet in length. One of the fisherman directed Dr. Gairy to the fact that the body had six fingers on each hand. The body appeared to be of a white skinned man that had long white braided hair. Sir Eric said the body appeared to be of a young man, who if compared to a man of normal size would have been in his early thirties.

    By now Sir Eric had concluded that he and his group were looking at an extraterrestrial. He ordered the photographer to take pictures of the body with flash bulbs, but had the foresight to tell the photographer to save some film and wait for better day light.

    The alien was dressed in a skintight 1 piece dark blue suit the footwear was attached. This appearance first fooled the fisherman that found him to think that the body was that of a scuba diver that met with some misfortune. After a closer examination they quickly realized that this was not a scuba diver from this world.
    Dr. Gairy said that one could stretch the alien's suit to about two feet from the body. The weave did not separate. After releasing the material it would slowly return to its original position on the body and during the course of it doing so, emitted a low audible "humming" sound.

    As the sun rose it became evident to Sir Eric and his excited group that the beach was covered by metal wreckage of various sizes. There were also pieces of metal and "containers" rolling about in the surf. These items were photographed.

    When all the wreckage they could find on the beach and in the surf was gathered it filled about 1/2 the bed of one of the two pick up trucks that they brought with them. With considerable physical effort they placed the covered alien body on the bed of the second truck.

    Among an estimated number of 8 metal containers, they found that they were able to force open two of them. The largest of the two contained specimens of fish and plant life, as well as packets of sand and coral from the seabed.

    Sir Eric had the fisherman go further out to sea to search for more bodies and wreckage. Three soldiers were left at the site to look for more wreckage and wait for the fisherman to return. The fishermen never returned. The soldiers were eventually ordered back to their barracks with additional orders not to say anything about what they had seen.

    Sir Eric paused in his story at this point, and stared at me as he waited for my reaction:

    I asked him: What happen to the body? Was there an autopsy? Was the body preserved?

    His answer was that the only place that he would trust to perform a proper autopsy was at the "Medical School." Though he would not say where he sent the body, I got the feeling that he did in fact send the body to the school for preservation, if not for an autopsy. I think he did this in order to give himself time to think about whom else he was going to tell about the alien, and what he could gain for his country and possibly what he might gain for himself (?).

    I also asked if he ever got any of the other containers open? If so, what was in them? His reply was he never saw any of the other containers opened, He said that he ordered that any one who tried to open one would be strongly punished.

    My next question was: Who else knows about this event?

    His answer was: "There is a small number of people that I have confided in. Not being on Grenada the orders I gave to those in the know, not to talk about this matter cannot be enforced. I have no idea who these people might have told."

    I asked if he told Kurt Walheim. He said he never got the time or opportunity. "Although the alien body was really my only reason for arranging a one on one talk with him, I was emotionally reacting to the rebellion and I knew I could not prove the story, unless I was back in Grenada and personally showed him the alien body. Returning to Grenada and being reinstated as Prime Minister was my first priority."

    My next question was: What do you intend to do about this matter in the future?

    Sir Eric answered: "I am still formulating my plans."

    After this meeting I never met with or talked to Sir Eric Gairy again. He suddenly vacated his apartment. I never heard a word as to where he went or what he did.

    On October 19, 1983 Bernard Coard, a hard line member of the New Jewel Movement (the group that over threw Sir Eric) led a military coup and placed Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and other leading moderates under arrest. When a mob of Bishop supporters freed the ousted prime minister and his allies from prison, troops responded by killing dozens of protesters and executed Bishop and also two other cabinet members.


    It is reasonable to assume that a U.S. invasion of Grenada was planned as early as two years before the revolution's self annihilation (the Bishop over throw), which gave the United States (Reagan Administration) the excuse it had been waiting for.

    The U.S. invasion of Grenada came in the fall of 1983. The bloody coup in Grenada, along with a presumed threat to American students attending the St. George's Medical School on the island, provided the U.S. with an excellent excuse to eliminate a Marxist regime, which was allied with Cuba.

    The island quickly fell under American control. They were met by considerable resistance from the Grenadian army and Cuban military units stationed on the island. Heavy combat continued for several days, but as the invasion force grew to more than 7,000 troops. The defenders either surrendered or fled into the island's hill country. Some fighting continued as U.S. troops hunted down those who resisted the invasion to the bitter end.

    U.S. combat forces left Grenada in the middle of December, after pro- American government was established on the Island.

    The following is quote from and article titled, " Foreign Policy In Focus" By Stephen Zunes. He is an associate professor of politics and chair of the Peace & Justice Studies Program at the University of San Francisco, and serves as the Middle East editor for the Foreign Policy in Focus Project. He is the author of Tinderbox: U.S. Middle East Policy and the Roots of Terrorism (Common Courage, 2002).

    "The major justification for the invasion was the protection of American lives. Reagan administration officials falsely claimed that the island's only operating airport was closed, offering the students no escape. In reality, scores of people left the island on charter flights the day before the U.S. invasion, noting that there was not even a visible military presence at the airport and that customs procedures were normal. Regularly scheduled flights as well as sea links from neighboring Caribbean islands had ceased as of October 21, however, though this came as a direct result of pressure placed on these governments to do so by U.S. officials. Apparently, by limiting the ability of Americans who wished to depart from leaving, the Reagan administration could then use their continued presence on the troubled island as an excuse to invade. The Reagan administration admitted that no significant non-military means of evacuating Americans was actively considered.

    Particular concern was expressed over the fate of 800 American students at the U.S.-run St. George's University School of Medicine. The safe arrival in the United States of the initial group of happy and relieved students evacuated from Grenada resulted in excellent photo opportunities for the administration. It appears, however, that the students' lives were never actually in any danger prior to the invasion itself.

    Grenadian and Cuban officials had met only days earlier with administrators of the American medical school and guaranteed the students' safety. Urgent requests by the State Department's Milan Bish to medical school officials that they publicly request U.S. military intervention to protect the students were refused. Five hundred parents of the medical students cabled President Reagan to insist he not take any "precipitous action." Staff members from the U.S. embassy in Barbados visited Grenada and saw no need to evacuate the students.

    The medical school's chancellor, Charles Modica, polled students and found that 90% did not want to be evacuated. Despite repeated inquiries as to whether Washington was considering military action, he was told nothing of the sort was being considered. As the invasion commenced, Dr. Modica angrily denounced the invasion as totally unnecessary and a far greater risk to the students' safety than Grenada's domestic crisis. Vice-chancellor Geoffrey Bourne and Bursar Gary Solin also declared their steadfast opposition. The U.S. media focused great attention on the students who were first evacuated and "debriefed" by U.S. officials who generally supported the invasion. However, virtually no attention was given to those who stayed behind, who tended to be more familiar with the island and who largely opposed U.S. intervention. There were no confirmed reports of any American civilians harmed or threatened before or during the invasion. It was three days after U.S. troops initially landed before they decided to take control of the second medical school campus, raising questions as to whether the safety of Americans was really the foremost priority."

    It is now clear that the St. George's Medical School was a prime location the U.S. Military wanted to capture as soon as possible.

    Even though it is also now very evident that the American students at the school were at no time in any danger.

    I think it is safe for me to conclude that Sir Eric by this time had passed on to the U.S. government where he had place the giant alien body and the metallic debris that was recovered that early morning on the island of Grenada.

    It is known that a team of specially selected Graves Registration (GRREG) personnel were assembled on 27 October 1983 at the Dover Air Force Base mortuary in Dover, Delaware. This group of experts, which were to serve as an Identification team, were assigned to the US forces occupying the St. George's Medical School on the Island of Grenada. Their cover story was they were sent there to identify the bodies of the crewmembers of two helicopters that accidentally crashed during the invasion. Why were specialists needed for this purpose?

    Sir Eric Matthew Gairy returned to Grenada in 1984, from exile in the United States. There he suffered from a stroke, and became totally blind, he also became mentally incapacitated. Sir Eric Gairy died on 23 August 1997. He was given a state funeral as he was recognized for being a unique personality in the history of Grenadian politics.

    The reader can find a great deal about Sir Eric Gairy by searching the Internet. You will find that he is mostly described as once being a despotic dictator of the Island nation of Grenada who was over thrown by a Marxist group of rebels. Furthermore the reader will find that most author's of these articles relish in the fact that they have the opportunity to say that Sir Eric was a strange person that believed that extraterrestrials existed and were visiting the planet Earth.

    I am pleased that I had the personal honor and privilege of meeting Sir Eric Gairy. I found him to be a gentleman of exceptional intelligence and truthfulness. I believe that the real Sir Eric that I met would be best understood by reading the speech he gave before the United Nations, General Assembly, Thirty-Third Session, 32nd Plenary Meeting, on Thursday, 12 October 1978. After the Invasion of Grenada President Ronald Reagan in several speeches he said variations of the following statement:

    "At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S. President said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestrials, the United States and the Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, although I think it's early yet to worry about such an intrusion. It is much more important to think about the problems that have entered in our common home."

    I wonder what put this idea in his head???
