    Ike and the Alien Ambassadors
    The Whole Tooth About the President's Extraterrestrial Encounter

    "Ike" is President Eisenhower

    Fifty years ago tomorrow -- on Feb. 20, 1954 -- President Dwight Eisenhower interrupted his vacation in Palm Springs, Calif., to make a secret nocturnal trip to a nearby Air Force base to meet two extraterrestrial aliens.

    Or maybe not. Maybe Ike just went to the dentist. There's some dispute about this.

    The Ike-met-with-ETs theory is advanced by Michael Salla, a former American University professor who now runs the Peace Ambassador Program at AU's Center for Global Peace.

    The Ike-went-to-the-dentist theory is advanced by the folks at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Library in Abilene, Kan. And by James M. Mixson, a dentist, professor of dentistry and historian of presidential dental work.

    Just to make things more intriguing: On the night in question, the Associated Press reported this: "Pres. Eisenhower died tonight of a heart attack in Palm Springs."

    Two minutes later, the AP retracted that bulletin......

    it's a 'good story'--part of the lure and lore of one of the most interesting subjects in the World today--UFOs--have they made 'contact'---are they the 'tooth-fairies'?

    why do people waste their time reading those silly 'detective' stories?

    Imagine that, The Washington Post does UFO conspiracy theories now.

    Without commenting specifically on the alien claim, I find the dental story to be beyond repute. Clearly a cover story of this magnitude would require resources completely beyond that of any sitting U.S. president.

    So mouseonmoon, if you don't mind sharing, exactly what do you believe about all of this UFO, alien conspiracy stuff? Are you convinced of anything in particular?

    I'm afriad "belief" closes the mind--what comes next, "either/or"-- locked in a box--either with 'believers' or 'non-believers'- whose 'beliefs' don't really 'make sense' (to me) -"or", both 'make sense'....
    and both are right 'and' wrong?....

    yes, I believe I 'll have another drink-I'm afriad of dentists.....

    Most of my experiences in the dental chair easily compare with the horrors perpetrated on those abducted by aliens. I carry more oral implants than you could shake a stick at.

    Now why would the AP have such a statement ready to go out? Did somebody boo boo and grab the wrong press release?

    It's not a mater of "belief", but one of acceptance that something is going on behind the scenes. When the wool gets so thick it starts dropping off all by its self peoples eyes will see. This is what I see happening nowadays.
