Ms. Laura Eisenhower Mahon writes, "I am a great granddaughter of President Dwight D Eisenhower and I should say from the start that I am fairly certain Ike was aware of aliens visiting Earth. In so many ways it was obvious. For starters there were the little comments here and there."
Laura's mother, Susan Eisenhower, consults to Obama Energy Secretary Steven Chu on The Commission to America's Nuclear Future, and has served on a DOE funded study on terrorism and dirty bombs. Thus far, no one associated with the current Obama administration, including Susan Eisenhower, has come forward concerning the alleged alien tale, which continues to make the rounds amongst former intelligence types, and their associates in the private sector.
A confirmed, former US government paranormal consultant, Ingo Swann, claims to have been approached by a 'black' UFO operation in the mid-1970s. In an out-of-print book published in 1998, Swann revealed he had been recruited to use his alleged psychic powers to observe extraterrestrial beings living on the moon. Swann also claimed to have been taken to a remote location somewhere in the northern fringes, where he experienced a close encounter with an unidentified object hovering over a lake. - americanchronicle.com
Dr. Strange Confessions: Or why I learned to stop worrying and love the Martians
As you might imagine, we (that is, contributors to STARstream Research) tend to attract some very odd persons, places, and things.
It's largely a consequence of our open-source investigation of futuristic technology intersecting the darker, hidden worlds of the subconscious mind, with a healthy dose of cloak and dagger provided by our friends in the Intelligence Community.
And, it would seem, you should never underestimate the potentially explosive power of this intersection. As Dan Smith wrote, once upon a time, concerning his CIA friend Ron Pandolfi, to another person in the I.C.:
"The situation with Ron is he has handed me my fair share of glycerol. In addition, he points to you as the fellow with the nitrate. He is leaving it up to me to perform the final synthesis."
Mr. Smith understands the situation quite clearly: The role of a cut-out asset is to insulate the source from the resulting explosive residue.
We enter our way-back machine and set the dial to 2006, a year which, in hindsight, appears to have been the turning point into our present situation.
At issue, the bizarre allegations of Laura Magdalene Eisenhower (not her real name, but the identity she has chosen to present publicly as the great-granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower) concerning an "extraterrestrial affair" and a secret Mars Project. - starpod.org
NOTE: Laura Magdalene Eisenhower (actually Laura Bradshaw Eisenhower Mahon) wrote and submitted this narrative to AllNewsWeb.com (yeah, Michael Cohen's AllNewsWeb.com)...which, in my opinion, lessens the credibility of this revelation. Still, the Eisenhower meeting has been a staple of ufology lore. Below are a few previous posts related to this supposed encounter...Lon
March 01, 2009 Item 2.25: FOIA Request to CIA re Film Footage of Eisenhower's Inspection of an Alien Spacecraft and Its Deceased Occupants

DATE: March 1, 2009
1. On February 3, 2009, a surrogate UFO-E.T.-coverup whistleblower named "Bob" phoned in to the late-night syndicated radio program Coast-to-Coast AM (hosted by George Noory). "Bob related the circumstances of his acquisition of certain 16-mm film footage showing President Eisenhower and the late aviation pioneer Howard Hughes inspecting the apparent remains of a crash-landed flying saucer and its alien crew. (See my below-quoted transcript of "Bob's" account.) This latest evidence implicating Eisenhower in the federal government's sequestering of hard evidence of UFO-E.T. reality dovetails with earlier leakage to certain UFOlogists of a copy of the so-called Eisenhower Briefing Document from the allegedly CIA-created/managed "Majestic-12" operation that began during the late 1940s.
2. In order to unearth the whole story of Eisenhower's UFO-E.T. connection, I submit this letter as a freedom-of-information request that you send me a copy of all CIA-generated and CIA-received records pertaining to the film footage revealed by "Bob's" account. One or more copies of that footage (and/or references thereto) may be housed in the same compartment as that which contains the radar data and other technical material that certain CIA personnel confiscated from former FAA official John J. Callahan during his investigation of the UFO encounter experienced by a Japanese 747 cargo jet over Alaska on Nov. 17, 1986. (Refer to my FOIA-CIA case No. F-2008-01781, which soon will be litigated in U. S. District Court for the District of Columbia.) I therefore ask that your ensuing records search include that special compartment.
3. Please note that the U. S Freedom of Information Act (as amended by the U. S. OPEN Government Act of 2007) requires your agency to conduct a reasonable search for the sought-for records - and that I, as a representative of the news media (RNM), remain entitled to full waiver of all records-processing fees incident to your fulfillment of this request. As with my most recent FOIA requests to your agency, I refer you to my web log - http://ufoview.posterous.com - for ample evidence of my RNM requester status. Note: I shall construe your acceptance of this request as a formal acknowledgment of my RNM requester status.
4. By snail-mail, I'm sending to you a signed printout of this e-formatted letter.

Did President Eisenhower Meet with Aliens in 1954?
One of the first conclusions an impartial observer must make about the subject of UFOs is that rumors and circumstance play far too great a role in what ought to be a more exacting quest for knowledge. It is just such an observation which once led Dr. Carl Sagan to comment dryly that UFOs "are more a matter for religion and superstition than they are for science."
While this dismissal is perhaps unscientific in its own right, the point is well taken. Attend any gathering of "UFO people" you want, and simply listen. Rumors abound. Perhaps worse, however, is that some of these rumors manage to circulate for years (even decades) without anyone making a reasonable effort to get to the bottom of them.
One of the most persistent of these is a story that President Eisenhower visited Edwards Air Force Base in early 1954, and either viewed the bodies of dead aliens and the wreckage of their craft, or met with live aliens on some sort of diplomatic mission to earth.
The story takes many forms, with the common thread being that Ike mysteriously disappeared one evening while on a vacation to Palm Springs, and that he was spirited to Edwards to view (or meet) aliens. It is said that he returned by dawn and shortly thereafter ordered absolute secrecy about anything having to do with UFOs.
No doubt one of the reasons that this particular rumor has continued to circulate for such a long time is that there are a number of verifiable facts associated with it--some of them rather curious.
For example, President Eisenhower did indeed make a trip to Palm Springs between February 17th and 24th, 1954, and on the evening of Saturday, February 20th, he did disappear! When members of the press learned that the president was not where he should be, rumors ran rampant that he had either died or was seriously ill.
The story even managed to get onto a press wire before being killed moments later. To quell the fuss, White House Press Secretary James Haggerty called an urgent late evening press conference to announce "solemnly" that the president had been enjoying fried chicken earlier that evening, had knocked a cap off a tooth, and had been taken to a local dentist for treatment.
When Ike turned up as scheduled the next morning for an early church service, the matter seemed ended. Although the Palm Springs trip was billed as a "vacation for the president", the trip appears to have come up rather suddenly.
In addition, it is a matter of record that Ike had returned from a quail shooting vacation in Georgia less than a week before leaving for Palm Springs.
While the incidence of a local dentist being called upon to treat a president of the United States is unusual enough that it should constitute a rather memorable event for those involved, the dentist's widow, in a June, 1979 interview, was curiously unable to recall any specifics relating to her husband's alleged involvement in the affair--not even the time of day it had occurred. Yet her memory appeared flawless when asked to relate details of her and her husband's attendance (by presidential invitation) at a steak fry the following evening, where her husband was introduced as "the dentist who had treated the president".
This would appear to suggest a cover story, the details of which would have easily been repeated at the time, but quite naturally forgotten 25 years later. Research at the Eisenhower Library has uncovered two other facts inconsistent with the dentist story.
The first is that while the library maintains an extensive index of records relating to the president's health, there is no record of any dental work having been performed at all during February, 1954. A file on "Dentists" contains nothing concerning any such incident either. Secondly, there is a large file containing copies of all sorts of acknowledgments which were sent by the White House to people who had something to do with the Palm Springs trip.
There are letters, for example, to people who sent flowers, people who met the airplane, people who had offered to play golf, etc. There is even a thank you letter to the minister who presided over the Sunday service Ike attended. Yet there is no record of any acknowledgment having been sent to "the dentist who treated the president."
If the matter were as routine as Haggerty attempts to make it appear, then the absence of these records seems strangely inconsistent. The rumor of the president's alleged visit to Edwards is not a new one. UFO contactee fringe writers began making unsupported claims about it less than two months after Ike's trip.
So did a bizarre fellow from the Hollywood hills named Gerald Light, who, in an April 16, 1954 letter to the head of a Southern California metaphysical organization, actually claimed to have been at Edwards where he saw Ike, the saucers and the aliens. Light's letter has been controversial for years and copies of it have turned up in all sorts of places, including the National Enquirer.
Investigation into Mr. Light's background, however, turned up the fact that he was an elderly mystic who believed that psychic "out-of-body-experiences" were a logical extension of the reality of life and should be treated as such. In the final analysis, Light's alleged visit to Edwards was just such an experience.
And so the story ends. Clearly something unusual occurred involving the president on the evening of February 20, 1954. Whether it was a trip to the dentist, a trip to see flying saucers, or something altogether different and unrelated, no one can say. It's the stuff rumors are made of. - William H.
