This statement is taken out of context.  In the original,
Marchetti makes clear that he is merely speculating. In fact,
the quote above omits the opening words of the sentence: "My
theory is that we  have, indeed, been contacted...."  Marchetti
writes that UFOs were "rarely discussed" in his CIA experience,
though "neither were they treated in a disdainful or derisive
manner, especially not by the agency's scientists." He said most
of what he heard were "rumors," and these largely

Marchetti's article, which is essentially an exercise in space,
type, paper, and time waste, betrays his naivete on UFO matters.
For example, he says, "Of all the evidence that exists with
regard to UFOs, the single most impressive item (to my mind) is
the Jimmy Carter experience." As no serious ufologist disputes, Carter saw 
Venus, not a UFO. (J Cohen: Bolding of J. Clark comment for easy 
reference only)
Marchetti even gets the year (1969) of the
sighting wrong (he has it in 1973). Jerry Clark Page from the website of:
