Valiant Thor, an off-world visitor who came to the Pentagon in 1957, holds a higher perspectives of humanity, as explained by filmmaker Craig Campobasso. Unlike many other extraterrestrials visiting our planet, Valiant Thor was very photogenic and not camera shy. It was what he had to offer that truly intrigued government officials who invited him to stay. Ultimately, the conditions of his proposal, which would benefit all of humanity, proved too much for the U.S Government to accept. For us, however, it is not too late. This interview with George Noory was originally webcast February 24, 2016.
