UAP Policy – Did James Forrestal’s UFO Knowledge Cost Him His Life?

UAP Policy

*We may earn a commission for purchases made using our links. Please see our disclosure to learn more.

The original UAP policy is considered to have been formed in the late 1940s. UAP stands for unidentified aerial phenomena.

It was a time in the United States when the topic of ufos was at a heightened state.

James Forrestal was the first Defense Secretary of the United States and was appointed around that time. A UAP policy seemed a mere formality. But where would it originate from.

While Forrestal lived a remarkable life prior to his untimely death in May, 1949, it was what happened in the last three years of his life which will be most remembered.

That’s a shame because Forrestal really was a remarkable person.

His connection to the infamous MJ-12 is legendary. His connection to knowledge of the existence of ufos is equally appetizing for “uap buffs’. And his mysterious death is what then triggered off an array of conspiracy theories.

In fact, Forrestal’s death may have also been the birth of the original conspiracy theory.

But those who have studied Forrestal’s death with pinpoint precision say his death was not a suicide as it was ruled at the time.

They’ll tell you that it was impossible for Forrestal to take his own life in the manner in which he died.

Ace researcher and investigator Peter Robbins is one of those people.

In a presentation during the Aliens Revealed Live Online Summit when asked:

“If all the evidence that you’ve gathered over the years was presented in today’s court system, do you think a jury would come up with a verdict of suicide or murder?

Robbins replied:

“Mmm, I’m quite convinced. Although one could say I’m not objective. I think I’m ultra objective. I would not have chosen to present this case…that they would most certainly decide it was a case of murder”.

James Forrestal’s death was unusual to say the least. In fact, as a suicide, it was a little hard to believe.

The first question you’d ask of someone being sixteen floors up is, ‘why wouldn’t you choose jumping rather than hanging yourself as a way to die?’.

If you were to hang yourself, ‘why not do it in your own room?’  ‘Why go to all the trouble of trying to juggle your way out of a sixteen story window to hang yourself?’

Yes, the James Forrestal death is one of the most enduring mysteries in United States history.

And Peter Robbins is one man who dismisses the verdict of suicide as a cause of death.

“You know, jumpers jump and folks that want to hang themselves will hang themselves”.

Does Hanging Oneself From A 16 Story Window Sound A Little Absurd?

The months leading up to Forrestal’s demise is the stuff best-selling novels are made of. It was chilling, suspenseful and full of mysterious characters.

Peter Robbins has scoured every inch of evidence on this case. He hasn’t missed a thing.

He’s written books, made documentaries and spoken to everyone with some connection to James Forrestal and the verdict of murder seems to be the most logical verdict.


But when you’re dealing with governments, ufos and things that affect national security, nothing is logical. And people mysteriously lose their lives.

And hanging oneself from a sixteen story window is a little hard to believe.

“They don’t try to hang themselves out of a window of a 16 floor building”.

“In any case, where somebody is so terribly in despair, that they are considering ending their life, those of us who have been fortunate enough not to be standing on that actual or allegorical ledge, sometimes come to think that their mind is clouded and full of confusion”.

“Where that may be the case in some instances also it’s often not one reason. It’s a complexity of reasons”.

“And I think that that was the case with Mr. Forestal. It was not just one reason”.

“However, I have come to believe incontrovertibly, that a major consulting reason, was the tremendous sense of personal failure that he had”.

“And the understanding that in the minds of very powerful individuals in Washington by having a nervous breakdown, and a very public one at that, that he could not only no longer be trusted, but that he knew where all the bodies were buried, if you know what I mean”.

“He knew all the secrets and what happened”.

Did Forrestal Signed His Own Death Warrant?

Robbins research reveals that Forrestal in his own mind had convinced himself he had to die.

He was a high achiever and by his own standards, had not done a good job as Defense Secretary.

Couple that with the fact that a clear-headed James Forrestal with what he knew, presented a huge issue for those hell bent on suppressing the information he he had in his possession.


He was going to die by his own hand or he would be eliminated by an outside source.

“I think James Forrestal not only understood this, but it was so clear to him that in his mind as a patriotic American who had done his best and failed miserably in his estimate, that he knew he had to die”.

“And the two instances of suicide that sadly I was able to fully document leading up to his institutionalization, was him acting like a good Roman soldier and trying to throw himself on his sword”.

“But he was literally stopped by individuals around him who cared”.

“When he began to truly recover and regain his will to live, he signed his own death warrant”.

“And as I make note of in the documentary, I think it’s fair to say that the individuals who would have had to have been very highly placed that forced him out of that 16th floor window, would still have had great respect and admiration for him as they say in the mob”.

“It’s nothing personal”.

So was James Forrestal murdered? Certainly all the evidence that Robbins has gathered and presented suggests this may have been the case.

But like other enduring mysteries in United States history, the death of James Forrestal will always remain a mystery.

And What About Forrestal’s Involvement In The UAP Policy?

Did James Forrestal simply know too much about unidentified aerial phenomena?

Remember, his death was shortly after the Roswell crash. It was at a time when people in high places were nervous.

The emergence of MJ-12 added to the mystery.

And then there were the mysterious “men in black” type characters that followed Forrestal in the days leading up to his death.

Who were they? Were they human? Did they have anything to do with his eventual death?

Peter Robbins has made a lot of his research available to the public. He produced a documentary in 2019 which is must viewing.

The following interview is the full presentation from the Aliens Revealed Live Online Summit.

Robbins gives an outstanding account of the early days of Forrestal’s climb to power, the UAP policy his time at the top and his eventual decline and death. His final verdict is chilling.

Robbins also shares his thoughts on pending disclosure.

A journalist, reporter, anchor and sports commentator for over 30 years I was mesmerized by the UFO topic when I was just 5 years old after watching the 1956 classic “Earth vs. The Flying Saucers”. Did I even understand it at that age? Oh sure. It scared the crap out of me but I was hooked even back then! Do I believe in life elsewhere in the universe? I think it was said best in the movie Contact…”The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space”….I think we’d have to be pretty arrogant to think we’re it”.
