Schneider said he was one of three survivors in a battle with aliens in August 1979 and that he was the only person with a high-level security clearance speaking out in such detail about the government’s knowledge of alien beings.
Schneider claimed multiple attempts were made on his life after he began revealing what he knew. His death by suicide has been viewed with suspicion by his supporters.
Schneider was suspicious about the underground base he was helping to build when he saw so many Special Forces Green Berets around camp.
The work team drilled four large holes, the standard way to start construction. But what emerged from the holes was not at all part of standard procedure. “All the black sooty air came up when we drilled holes there,” Schneider said in a lecture at the 1995 Preparedness Expo. He had gone underground to make an assessment when he found himself just feet away from a “big grey”—a 7-foot-tall alien.
The alien made a sort of circular motion with his hand, waving it in front of his chest. Schneider imitated the action. “The next thing I know, this blue beam hit me and just literally opened me up like a fish.”
A Green Beret saved Schneider’s life and lost his own in the process. He got Schneider into a lift and pushed the button to raise him above ground to safety.
More than 60 people lost their lives that day, said Schneider. The other two survivors are living in nursing homes in Canada, he said. They are protected by the Canadian government and no American citizen, Schneider included, is allowed access to them. Schneider said this is because they were scared of being kidnapped.
Each cost $17 billion or more. He said the Black Budget, hidden from other U.S. government agencies and from the public, garners 25 percent of the gross national product. Military forces from multiple countries have been engaged in such warfare with aliens, he said.
“We must instill in our public officials, they must tell us the truth,” he said. “If the truth cannot totally come out, what’s the use in us having anything called freedom?”
