The late Robert Dean certainly had the credentials to back up his claims about UFOs and extraterrestrial entities. Listen to his story about the secret "UFO Assessment" documents.
The claims that Robert Dean made truly have the potential to turn the world as we know it on its head. No one can doubt his credibility, he worked at NATO headquarters from 1963 to 1967. He enrolled in the United States Army on April 5, 1960, and has also served in Korea as well as Vietnam. On October 31, 1976, he retired from the army as a Command Sergeant Major.
Robert Dean first came to the forefront of controversy with his claims that he saw a secret document labeled "UFO Assessment: An Evaluation of a Possible Threat." Dean claimed that the document detailed secret information on alien autopsies, extraterrestrial encounters, and UFO sightings. He stated that the research was approved by NATO.
Following an impressive 28-year military career, he decided to reveal the hidden information on July 5 at the Roswell 50th anniversary celebration.
Robert Dean first arrived at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) in 1963, where he was assigned to the Operations Division. Within two years, he had been promoted to E8 Master Sergeant and became Chief Security NCO for the Language Services Branch. It was within this role he controlled and had access to all the classified material and documentation in the branch.
During his employment within the Language Services Branch, Robert Dean held a Cosmic level clearance. Dean detailed how during the 1950s and early 1960s, UFOs were flying over Europe, an occurrence that, according to him, almost caused World War III to break out.
“Large numbers of large metallic, circular objects were flying all over Europe. These things would fly in formations out of the east toward the west over Europe, over the southern coast of England, then they would turn north over the channel and then would disappear off of NATO radars off the Norwegian Sea.” Robert Dean
In further claims, he stated that NATO had launched a three-year program assigned to investigating UFOs, with an aim of finding out if they posed a threat to the military. He received this information from a 1964 NATO report titled "An Assessment" (An evaluation of a Possible Military Threat to Allied Forces in Europe). He stated that the report he had seen was so sensitive and secret that only 15 copies of it were printed. The report apparently contained detailed studies of astronomers, astrophysicists, historians, sociologists, theologians, and atmospheric physicists.
Robert Dean said: "There had been the case after case of UFO landings, face-to-face confrontations, invitations to come aboard their ships. It had been going on for some years. It has been going on for centuries." Dean said that the report stated that, "there apparently was not a military threat because if extraterrestrials were hostile or malevolent, the game would have been up a long time ago."
He also claimed that NATO was concerned when they found out that out of the four known alien species that they knew about, one of them looked just like humans, even managing to walk along the corridors of NATO without being identified.
Robert Dean gave an interview with Australian ufologist Michael E. Salla, in which he explained how he got his hands on the top-secret documents, he said: "My first exposure to The Assessment was when an Air Force, full Colonel, who was on duty that night, as the SHOC controller, pulled it out of the vault and threw it on my desk and said 'Read this. That'll wake you up!'"
Phill Klass, an American journalist wrote that Robert Dean had learned from the NATO report that in late 1963 or 1964, a 100-feet diameter UFO crashed in Germany. British Army Engineer Battalion had recovered the debris from the UFO as well as 12 alien bodies. Dean claimed that not only was he shocked to know we had been dealing with extraterrestrial beings and visits from different star systems, but scientists and military personnel had also been dealing with a much more advanced species that were, according to him, multi-dimensional.
During his time as a researcher, Robert Dean cited several different pieces of ancient art where he was intrigued by the continued projection of lenticular clouds in the paintings, he believed that these clouds were in fact UFOs.
Robert Dean became well known within the UFO community and even received three-lifetime achievement awards, as you would suspect, plenty of sceptics still classed him as a liar.
