Aliens May Be Real After Former CIA Director Implies Their Existence

URL copied to clipboard.

Former CIA Director under the Bill Clinton administration, R. James Woolsey, becomes the third government official to insinuate the possible existence of aliens, also referred to as UFOs. In a 49 minute video interview with Youtube government conspiracy theorist, John Greenwald, virtually sat down with Woosley to talk about his upcoming book, ‘Operation Dragon,’ and other government theories, including the infamous possibility of aliens.

The Interview

R. James Woolsey had several beliefs to discuss with Greenwald, including the murder of former president JFK, Soviet Russia, and of course, UFOs.

In the interview, Woolsey can be heard talking about UFOs saying,

“There have been events of one kind or another, that some kind of aircraft like frame that has put a number of people into a situation where people would say, like me, I never thought there was anything to all this, it always seemed pretty far out to me. [I] don’t know what the reality is, but there was one case in which a friend of mine was able to have his aircraft stop at 40,000 feet or so and not continue operating like a normal aircraft. What was going on? I don’t know. There have just been enough things like that that have occurred that I think that there will be a lot of examination of what’s going on over the course of the several months or maybe years.”

While he does not outwardly confirm the existence of aliens, his words definitely insinuate the possibility of their existence, or at the very least, UFOs when he describes an “aircraft like frame.”

Not The First

R. James Woolsey was not the first government official to speak on the idea of extraterrestrial life outside of this planet. Former CIA director under former president Barack Obama, John Brennan, has also had some opinions and insight on the theory. In an interview in 2017 with Tyler Cowen, Brennan goes as far to say, “I think it’s a bit presumptuous and arrogant for us to believe that there’s no other form of life anywhere in the entire universe.” Again, nothing incriminatingly revealing is being said, but we cannot help but wonder why these CIA directors dance around the topic.


In a more recent interview with the Guardian, John Ratcliffe who worked as the former intelligence director under Trump talked about UFOs and the government’s lack of releasing all the data to the American people.

“Frankly, there are a lot more sightings than have been made public. Some of those have been declassified. And when we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have been seen by navy or air force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery, that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain, movements that are hard to replicate, that we don’t have the technology for. Or traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”

At the end of the day, it is unclear to whether aliens really exist, as little proof has been released to the public by the government. We will have to wait for the coming month, when R. James Woolsey believes information will be examined.

So, what do you think? Do you believe in aliens and UFOs? Did these interviews convince you yet? Let us know in the comments!
