John Alexander, PhD, is a retired U.S. Army Colonel. He is author of The Warrior’s Edge, Future War, and UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities. He has served as a consultant to the National Intelligence Council, the CIA, U.S. Special Operations Command, and the Army Science Board.
Here he maintains that an understanding of UFOs requires familiarity with a range of phenomena associated with the paranormal. He notes that, while UFOs have been associated with both the U.S. and Russian nuclear missile programs, such events are so rare as to be not amenable to institutional study. While governments throughout the world have acknowledged the existence of UFOs, the phenomena still elude understanding. Dr. Alexander challenges the credibility of those who claim that the United States has achieved any technological breakthrough as a result of having made contact with alien intelligences.
