Are Extraterrestrials the Enemy?

Hillary Clinton is currently visiting Japan and other Asian nations to promote improved diplomatic relations. Clinton may be interested to learn that on December 20, 2007, the Japanese Defense Minister at the time, Shigeru Ishiba, publicly commented on his nation's defense policy concerning a possible extraterrestrial attack. He said: "If they descended, saying `People of the Earth, let's make friends,' it would not be considered an urgent, unjust attack on our country." Secretary Clinton might then recall her own public comment about numerous Hollywood depictions of extraterrestrials as invaders.

During the 2008 Presidential election campaign she commented about Hollywood movies of extraterrestrials invading earth and the unifying effect this would have. On December 17, 2007 she said: "Remember that movie Independence Day, where invaders were coming from outer space and the whole world was united against the invasion? Why can't we be united on behalf of our planet? And that's what I want to do.” She made similar comments while First Lady in the Clinton White House. Clinton’s views about the appearance or ‘invasion’ of extraterrestrial life playing a unifying planetary effect takes on special significance with her current role as U.S. Secretary of State.

Secretary Clinton’s views mirror comments by former President Ronald Reagan who also believed in the unifying planetary effect of an extraterrestrial invasion. The most famous in a series of public statements concerning an extraterrestrial invasion was President Reagan’s speech before the United Nations General Assembly on September 21, 1987:

In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside of this world. And yet I ask - is not an alien force already among us?

Reagan and Clinton were not the first prominent public figures in the U.S. to reflect on the unifying effect of an extraterrestrial invasion. On October 8, 1955, General Douglas MacArthur made the first of two public statements concerning the possibility of an extraterrestrial invasion:

The nations of the world will have to unite, for the next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets.

General MacArthur had knowledge of classified military involvement in the UFO issue starting from the Second World War. He was allegedly involved in the creation of an Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit (IPU) after the 1942 Los Angeles Air Raid involving UFOs. The IPU’s existence was eventually confirmed by Army responses to FOIA requests in 1984. Given MacArthur’s senior military assignments, and alleged role in the IPU, he was aware of official military records concerning UFOs. This contributed to his belief that extraterrestrials formed a national security threat that could unify the countries of the world.

Were both Clinton and Reagan publicly reflecting on an extraterrestrial invasion scenario that they had been privately briefed about from sources familiar with national security files? According to an alleged briefing document, President Reagan did receive an official briefing of extraterrestrial life by his national security advisors. While debate continues over the veracity over the Reagan Briefing Document, other events point to him having received an official briefing. According to Hollywood television producer, Jamie Shandera, Reagan confided to Stephen Spielberg after a special White House film screening his knowledge of the existence of extraterrestrial life. On June 27, 1982, Reagan allegedly whispered to Spielberg after watching the movie E.T.: “You know, there aren’t six people in this room who know how true this really is." Subsequent comments throughout his Presidency concerning a possible threat by extraterrestrial life is evidence that Reagan did receive an official briefing about an extraterrestrial invasion scenario.

It appears that President Reagan and other public officials have been briefed in ways that led them to conclude that extraterrestrials are the enemy. This enemy image making of extraterrestrials and Hollywood's role in promoting such images is something to which Clinton will eventually have to respond. Perhaps her Japan visit will provide her insights into how she could present a more diplomatic response to extraterrestrial life visiting Earth.
