In the late 1970s Jimmy Carter was President of the United States, and previous to that he had been the Governor of Georgia a U.S. Navy Nuclear Engineer and a peanut farmer. He also was a witness, to what he was certain was a UFO. That event was likely the trigger for the White House reaching out to NASA to create a ‘NASA UFO Commission’ while he was President. Unfortunately this ‘UFO Commission’ was never finalized so would unfortunately disintegrate. So the story about Jimmy Carter and his experience with UFOs can be found HERE.
