The Strangest Conspiracy of All

Abductees have often reported during their incredibly intense and disturbing ordeals saying to their alien captors, “You have no right to do this.”  After this point the creatures turn to the abductees and often would say the same uniformed phrase every time, “Yes we do.”  The phrase sounds bold, but an entity working entirely within the realms of logic would have to have come to this conclusion through some action.  And so comes one of the most disturbing claims ever made within the UFO community.

The idea of any government of the world sanctioning the abduction of its citizens by an elusive alien force is something that goes far beyond the simple extraordinary claims of the UFO community.  It reaches right into the heart of our concepts of right and wrong and threatens to reach for the very fabric of our society itself.  But is there anything to this claim?  And where did the story of the Greada Treaty originate?

The story goes that in 1954 a mysterious document was drafted known as the Greada Treaty.  This document offered the visiting Greys the right to abduct humans and performed undefined procedures on them as long as they were later brought back to Earth unharmed.  In return, the Eisenhower administration would be granted technology that would allow the US to retain technological supremacy against the Soviet Union.  The treaty also said that cattle could be mutilated, but that any people involved in the project were required to have personal details shared with a new secret branch of government that would be created.

The original story says that the treaty was signed after contact was established with the mysterious visiting creatures when they landed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico and Muroc-Edwards Air Force Base in California.

There’s no question that it’s an incredible claim, but where does it originate?  Phil Schneider was the first known proponent of the claim suggesting this treaty existed.  And since then it has become one of the rarely spoken of but often referred to cornerstones of modern UFOlogy.  But was it true?  Many skeptics have pointed to several of the claims made by Schneider, suggesting they are too fantastic to be believed, including the suggestion that the entirety of the continental United States is hollowed out with tunnels and bases of both extraterrestrial and military origin.

Is the Earth a honeycomb of extraterrestrial bases complete with a communications infrastructure designed to work out treaties between humans and aliens?  Or is this simply one of the stories of modern UFOlogy folklore?  The ideas eventually gained popularity in the 1990’s with the assistance of televised programs on the subject such as The X-Files.  But was there more to this than just fiction?  We may never know.
