ALIENS have been visiting Earth for thousands of years and nearly caused chaos at the height of the Cold War, a former defense minister has sensationally claimed.
The ex-minister of National Defence for Canada said at least four species of aliens have been visiting Earth for decades and claimed top authorities are constantly in discussions with extraterrestrial beings.
Paul Hellyer, who was the Canadian Minister of National Defense in the 1960′s during the Cold War, claims to have inside information that top governments are in cahoots with aliens.
Mr Hellyer first spoke about his belief that aliens were on Earth in 1995, and since then has become an authoritative figure in the UFO community.
Speaking to RT, Mr Hellyer said: “In one of the cases during the Cold War, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe.
“The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole.
“They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided that with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years.”
Mr Hellyer alleged the alien species traveled to Earth from different star systems.
He said: “Many are benign and benevolent, and a few are not. They come from various places, for a long while I only knew about ones that came from different star systems, the Pleadies.
“There are extraterrestrials that come from Andromeda, and ones that live on one of Saturn’s moon’s.
“There is a federation of these people, and they have rules, one of them is that they don’t interfere with our affairs unless they are invited.”
And in a dire threat, Mr Hellyer said the alien visitors have tried to warn the human race about the way civilisation is heading and alleged the United States has spent billions of dollars on so-called “black projects”.
Mr Hellyer said: “Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.
“It is ironic that the US should be fighting monstrously expensive wars, allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both Congress and the Commander-in-Chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.”
