Presidents and UFOs
I think she was confused. On my UFO thumb drive, I have a lot of this downloaded, but it is not with me. I think she was a little confused about what happened and when it happened when she discussed it with that reporter. I think it was People magazine maybe, and several years later. I think another reporter, who also circulated the Walter Cronkite UFO rumor, may have confused her, or muddied the report a little, too. I think she was also trying to get a little publicity for a book, or project, she was working on at the time.
Jackie often told UFO stories, which may have been told with a wink, or maybe he half-convinced himself as he told them. Obviosuly, golfing with Dick Nixon on national television was an amazing milestone in his life at that time, as they were very close. I just think Jackie thought they were closer than Dick thought they were. I think it was in Spring 72 or 73, but my memory isn't great about that. The story is online at a lot of places, and was on C2CAM at least once.
