The UFOs Didn’t Come In Peace! Astronaut Sets Record Straight On ET Nuclear War

Few people are surprised by the eye-popping headlines in The Mirror. But when the infamous British tabloid quoted astronaut Edgar Mitchell as saying that “UFOs came in peace” to “save America from nuclear war,” it shocked everybody — including Mitchell.

The Mirror quotes Mitchell saying the following:

“White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons, and that’s what the extraterrestrials were interested in.”

“They wanted to know about our military capabilities.”

“My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth.”

“Officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their [test] missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft.”
