Bob Dean at the Exopolitics Summit Press Conference
Barcelona, Spain, 24 July 2009

[Ed note: Normally the transcripts that had any parts in them that had been difficult for the transcribers to hear were put in “audibles” in square brackets in red for Bill Ryan to attend to, fix, then he’d post the transcript; however, due to unexpected interruptions in the normal working process in Project Camelot, this normal process was not able to proceed forward, so the audibles were left in the square brackets.]

BOB DEAN (BD): Ladies and gentlemen, let me express my deep appreciation for your attendance here this afternoon. It’s gratifying to me to see such a turnout from the Spanish media.

In my country you have to grab the media by the throat and drag them kicking and screaming to pay attention to this subject. So I’m grateful and have much gratitude for your attendance here this afternoon.

Let me apologize to the beautiful translator / interpreter to my right. [laughter] I am notorious for not following script or instructions. So I will deviate somewhat from my prepared comments this afternoon, and I will tell you essentially what I have seen, and what I have learned, and what I have concluded about what I consider to be the greatest story in the history of the human race.

It is not merely the study of the history of the human race or in the history of the human race. It is really essentially the study, the conclusion of the history of the human race.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are not alone and we have never been alone. [applause] We have had a history of an intimate interrelationship with advanced extraterrestrial intelligence from the beginning of our human history.

I spent 27 years on active duty in the United States Army. I led combat troops in Korea in 1951 in one of the bloodiest wars we’ve ever fought. I gathered intelligence in Southeast Asia in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos in 1970.

But in 1963 I received an assignment to the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers in Europe. At that time this was considered to be a choice and plumb assignment in the United States Army. I was excited about the assignment. I took my wife and my children to Paris, France. My children went to high school in Paris and learned to speak fluent French. And I was given an assignment to the Supreme Headquarters Operations Center, a place we called ‘SHOC’.

I’m not trying to make a joke, but when I arrived, I was shocked at what I learned. It appeared that an event occurred on the early morning of the second of February, 1961, that almost started World War III.

Large numbers of circular craft of some kind flew over Central Europe out of the Soviet sector toward the west over NATO and Allied lines. These objects were circular, metallic, flying at a very high altitude, and flying at a very high rate of speed and they flew in formation very obviously under intelligent control. They would generally fly to the west and they would turn north over the English Channel, the southern coast of England and disappear from NATO radar over the Norwegian seas.

In the early morning of February ’61, World War III almost began. The Soviets went on red alert. All NATO forces went on red alert. Our fingers were poised on the triggers and over those red buttons. And the whole thing was over in about 20 minutes.

A British Air Marshal by the name of Sir Thomas Pike decided to initiate a study to find out what the hell was going on here. They conducted a three-year study. I arrived in the summer of 1963 and learned that it was underway, and they published the study in 1964.

All of us who worked in the war room and all of us who had a Cosmic Top Secret clearance were shocked and stunned by what we read.

They concluded that the human race and the planet Earth had been under some kind of observation and study for a very long time. They -- whoever they were -- were deeply interested in us and had been obviously observing us and studying us for a tremendous amount of time, hundreds --if not thousands -- of years. The study concluded that if they had been hostile or malevolent, there was absolutely nothing we could do. The study, titled An Assessment, also concluded that some kind of a program was underway. Even today we still don’t know what that program is all about.

Ladies and Gentlemen, that was the beginning for me. I spent the last 45 years trying to determine what this is all about and what does it mean. And I have concluded that this, indeed, is the greatest story in human history. We are and have been members of, apparently, an intergalactic culture and civilization and a community of intelligent life.

We are dealing with four particularly different races. They are all humanoid, but one group is totally human just as we are. The conclusions are that we are hybrids -- we humans are hybrids. Our relationship with them is one of a fellowship and a brotherhood. And they are assisting us and trying to come to terms with who we are and why we are here.

The biggest question, basically, is: Where are we going? Do we have a future as a species and a race? And I will tell you bluntly and honestly that I believe that our destiny is in the stars. [applause]

Now we talk about... forgive me for deviating again here sweetheart, I am so sorry. Just last week my country celebrated 40 years of anniversary of the landing of the Apollo on the Moon. They take great pride in saying: Look what we did. Isn’t this neat? We went to the Moon!

But what they didn’t tell the American public is that NASA purposely erased 40 rolls of film about the Apollo landings. They purposely erased 40 rolls of film on the Apollo landings and would not release this information to the American people.

The big secret was what we found when we got on the Moon. We found overwhelming evidence that we were not alone. They followed us all the way to the Moon. They followed us around the Moon. They followed us all the way home. And they watched every move we made while we were on the Moon.

All of this was filmed. That explains to you why those 40 rolls of film were erased. But not all of those pictures disappeared. There were some honest people working in NASA back in those days, and some of those pictures survived. And I have brought a considerable number of photographs of those NASA pictures with me to this conference and I am going to share them tomorrow night. [applause]

I must tell you they are shocking; they are stunning, and to some people, they will be literally overwhelming. But I will say to you as I will say to the American people and have for the last 20 years: Damn it! You have a right to the truth!

And to use a military term: You have a need for the truth.

And I want to thank you and Good Evening.
