Colonel Corso Met Extraterrestrial Says Dr. Steven Greer, Using Space Weapons Against ET Civilizations

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.




Philip J. Corso (May 22, 1915 – July 16, 1998) was an American Army officer. 

He served in the United States Army from February 23, 1942, to March 1, 1963, and earned the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. 

Corso published The Day After Roswell, about how he was involved in the research of extraterrestrial technology recovered from the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident 

In his book The Day After Roswell (co-author William J. Birnes) claims he stewarded extraterrestrial artifacts recovered from a crash near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

Corso says a covert government group was assembled under the leadership of the first Director of Central Intelligence, Adm. Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter (see Majestic 12). Among its tasks was to collect all information on off-planet technology. The US administration simultaneously discounted the existence of flying saucers in the eyes of the public, Corso says. 

According to Corso, the reverse engineering of these artifacts indirectly led to the development of accelerated particle beam devices, fiber optics, lasers, integrated circuit chips and Kevlar material. 

In the book, Corso claims the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), or “Star Wars”, was meant to achieve the destructive capacity of electronic guidance systems in incoming enemy warheads, as well as the disabling of enemy spacecraft, including those of extraterrestrial origin.

In an excerpt from Using Space Weapons Against ET Civilizations Dr. Michael E. Salla writes about Colonel Philip Corso’s Support for the Strategic Defense Initiative & Weaponization of Space

In his book, The Day After Roswell, co-authored with William Birnes, retired Lt. Col. Philip Corso declared that extraterrestrials were abducting civilians, violating U.S. airspace, and destroying aircraft sent to intercept them. Corso viewed the extraterrestrials as a direct threat to U.S national security and declared: “For over fifty years, now, the war against UFOs has continued as we tried to defend ourselves against their intrusions.”7 Elsewhere in the Day After Roswell, Corso describes the national security threat posed by UFOs and the need for a military weaponization program to target and shoot down UFOs conducting such violations. He specifically championed President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Corso believed that SDI was the appropriate response to extraterrestrial intrusions, and that the US and USSR both knew what SDI’s true purpose was:

We [US & USSR] both knew who the real targets of SDI were… It was the UFOs, alien spacecraft thinking themselves invulnerable and invisible as they soared around the edges of our atmosphere, swooping down at will to destroy our communications with EMP bursts, buzz our spacecraft, colonize our lunar surface, mutilate cattle in their own horrendous biological experiments, and even abduct human beings for their medical tests and hybridization of the species. And what was worse we had to let them do it because we had no weapons to defend ourselves.


A number of UFO researchers have claimed that these bellicose statements towards extraterrestrial visitors were introduced by Corso’s co-author William Birnes, and that Corso was not as anti-extraterrestrial as The Day After Roswell suggests. That is not accurate as a reading of Col Corso’s original notes make clear. His original notes were published in Italy and contain many similar statements revealing the depth of Corso’s animosity towards visiting extraterrestrials. For example, in terms of violating U.S. air space, Corso wrote: “They have violated our air space with impunity and even landed on our territory. Whether intentional or not, they have performed hostile acts. 

Our citizens have been abducted and killed.”10 Corso went on to fully describe the nature of the interaction between extraterrestrial visitors and the general population: “the aliens have shown a callous indifference concerning their victims. Their behavior has been insidious and it appears they might be using our earth and manipulating earth life. Skeptics will excuse them that possibly they are benevolent and want to help, however, there is no evidence they have healed anyone or alleviated human ailments. On the other hand, they have caused pain, suffering and even death.”

Corso here reveals the depth of his animosity towards extraterrestrials and the information he had received on their intrusive activities. His statements reveal that he had a skeptical view of the ‘benevolence’ of visiting extraterrestrials. Corso endorsed comments such as General Douglas Macarthur’s claim in 1955 that the “nations of the world will have to unite, for the next war will be an interplanetary war.” In terms of cooperation between the US and Russia (former USSR) to deal with the extraterrestrials, Corso wrote: “The U.S. and USSR are aligning their space programs against a common enemy.”
Consequently, it can be concluded that there is no ambiguity in Corso’s belief that extraterrestrials are a genuine threat to US. national security and that weaponization of space was an urgent policy priority to deal with the “extraterrestrial enemy”. If alive today, Corso would no doubt be a strong supporter of the current U.S Air Force plans to weaponize space, and build a global defense shield that could target extraterrestrial visitors. In short, Corso has consistently demonstrated strong support for military solutions to the presence of visiting extraterrestrials that in his view were performing abductions and other ‘intrusive activities’ that posed a direct threat to U.S. national security.

      Maybe they don’t really mean to hurt us. I know when I play Spore sometimes I lose a creature or sentient being out of my teleportation beam. I always feel a little bad when they scream as they fall to their death. :grin:

      I have read the book. Tis highly interesting & factual. Even if you get a copy 2nd hand, still worthwhile.

      Greer’s claims get stranger as time passes. These UFO “experts” seem to come up with new “facts” as soon as the sales of their last book slows down. Kind of like that guy from the army (sorry forgot his name) at Wendelschem (?) forrest in England that keeps expanding his claims after the last book sales stop and conference invites dry up. All that for a darn lighthouse(!) They bring bring an auro of incredulity to an area worthy of real insight based on real investigations.

      If ETs can reach us then there is no way where we could defend ourselves. Somewhat like when Europeans colonized many countries with technology far more advanced then the local people thereby having no chance to fight back. IF Aliens come here and they are agressive, then the human race may get eliminated. But this is not likely to happen because, an Alien species capable of interstellar travel would have learned sufficient wisdom in order to to reach self-destruction like the human race is about to live.

      Hence, if aliens exist and reach su, they should be good natured. They may almost surely wish our well being, a little but like the old movie When the Earth stood still. But, facing the incredible levels of corruption and violence the human race is capable of, they start wishing to stop mankind’s madness and widespread evil. They may wish to come down and take over in order to clean the mess that we have made.

      The ETs might be concerned that we never leave our planet since our mind is not wise enough to collaborate with the rest of the Galaxy since we cannot collaborate with each other and solve our major problems. So, they may wish that we remain ignorant of the principles which could help us reach the stars.

      Anyway, I am among those people believing that Aliens exist and are much more close in philosophy to the Gospel message. I do hope that that we meet with them and that they help us clean our mess.
