April 29, 2013 1st Panel – 2013 Citizen Hearing, Disclosure Linda Moulton Howe
Chairman Bartlett and other distinguished retired Congressional representatives on the Citizen Hearing Disclosure Panel
National Press Club
Washington, D. C.
My name is Linda Moulton Howe. I grew up in Boise, Idaho, where my father, Chet Moulton, was Director of Aeronautics for Idaho. One of his friends was Kenneth Arnold, who reported the unidentified flying objects over Mount Rainier in June 1947, and a local reporter coined the phrase “U.F.O.,” unidentified flying objects.
I remember my father dismissed the idea of extraterrestrials and that is the bias with which I grew up. I attended the University of Colorado in Boulder where I earned a cum laude Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. Then I went to Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, to earn a Masters Degree in Communication. For two years I produced, wrote, directed and edited documentary films for the Stanford Medical Center and my Master’s thesis film was about the Stanford Linear Accelerator’s first efforts to have computers analyze sub-atomic particle bombardments.
From Stanford, I went to TV news at KNBC-TV in Los Angeles, where my beat was science, environment and medicine. Later, I was honored at WCVB in Boston as a producer sharing the station’s Peabody Award for Science and Medical Programming Excellence.
Then I became Director of Special Projects at the Denver CBS affiliate, KMGH-TV. I produced, wrote, directed, edited and reported a dozen TV documentaries and several live studio programs about science, medical and environmental issues that earned three Regional Emmys, a National Emmy nomination and several other documentary film awards.
One of my documentaries was an investigation of the strange, bloodless, trackless mutilations of animals ranging from cattle and horses to goats, sheep, pigs and rabbits – and even wild animals such as deer and elk – that were repeatedly occurring in Colorado, all over the United States and Canada and other parts of the world.
The first research interview I did for that animal mutilation TV documentary was with former Logan County Sheriff Tex Graves. He told me bluntly, “The perpetrators of animal mutilations are creatures from outer space.”
In fact, a few ranchers told me about beams of light from round, glowing objects in the sky they had seen with their own eyes pick up cattle from a pasture – or lower an animal to a pasture – dead with bloodless excisions. The beam transport would explain why there often are no tracks – not even the animal’s own tracks.
That documentary, A Strange Harvest, was first broadcast in a 90-minute special May 25, 1980, and was awarded a Regional Emmy. Later Home Box Office (HBO) in New York City contacted me to follow up A Strange Harvest with an hour special for HBO with the working title: UFOS: The E. T. Factor.
A contract was signed and New York attorney Peter Gersten, who filed the first Freedom of Information requests back at the end of the 1970s for information about UFOs from the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), NSA (National Security Agency), DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency, NRO (National Reconnaissance Organization) and military offices – arranged for me to have a meeting at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque. Mr. Gersten had received correspondence from an agent at the U. S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations about a dramatic landing of a disc and humanoid entities at Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota.
In the meeting at the Kirtland AFOSI meeting on April 9, 1983, the AFOSI Agent showed me a document entitled: “Briefing Paper for the President of the United States On the Subject of Unidentified Aerial Craft.” The document gave a history of the U. S. government’s retrieval of crashed or landed craft in Aztec, Magdalena and Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, and again in 1949; Kingman in northern Arizona; and northern Mexico south of Laredo, Texas.
The alleged presidential briefing paper also described information from a live extraterrestrial biological entity – or EBE – taken from a crash site near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1949 – two years after the historically famous 1947 July crashes of wedge- shaped craft, not discs, that contained small humanoid bodies, both dead and alive.
I was told that one of the first scientists brought in on autopsies of dead alien bodies was a herpetologist, who studies reptiles such as snakes as well as amphibians. The skin and eyes of the non-humans were described as bumpy like snakeskin and the eyes had vertical slit pupils beneath dark lenses.
Since April 9, 1983, I have accumulated testimonies from witnesses and physical evidence that support the alleged presidential briefing paper shown to me at Kirtland AFB. Today on April 29, 2013 – thirty years later – in addition to work as a long-time TV producer and investigative reporter, I also produce, write, report and edit the science and environment website, Earthfiles.com, and report three hours of Earthfiles news investigations monthly for Premiere Radio Networks broadcast of Coast to Coast AM (estimated weekly audience 4 million).
Today I can assert that the pressure of facts accumulated from military and intelligence eyewitnesses; from ranchers and pathologists; from pilots and astronauts; from fellow human experiencers in the UFO abduction syndrome; and from leaks by scientists and computer experts, who have worked on back-engineering extraterrestrial technologies extracted from non-human craft – leaves no doubt that Need-To-Know agents in the U. S. government since World War II and the FDR and Truman Administrations have known about the extraterrestrial interactions with Earth and that their policies of denial in the alleged interest of national security are still in effect.
My greatest challenge as a journalist is to get on the record what I am told by military and intelligence agents and other eyewitnesses. National security in what is supposed to be a democratic government of, by and for the people, is not served by lies and secrecy. Every American and the whole world deserve the truth about non-humans past, present and future interacting with Earth.
