MJ-12 Member 09/1947 - ? Director of the CIA, 1947-1950


Vice Adm. Roscoe Hillenkoetter, USN, was the director of Central Intelligence from 1947 to 1950. Hillenkoetter was one of the first intelligence chiefs to publicly proclaim his belief in the UFO phenomenon. He was later on the board of directors of NICAP.


The first Director of the CIA from 1947 to 1950, and first Director of the Majestic 12 Advisory Group, stated in a 1960 news release; "Unknown objects are operating under intelligent control... It is imperative that we learn where UFO's come from and what their purpose is.": He also recommended: "It is time for the truth to be bought out in open Congressional hearings. Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFO's. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense."
