While admitting strong skepticism about the claim that on
February 20, 1954, Dwight David Eisenhower met with aliens, I
must state that I am somewhat skeptical of Eisenhower Library
archivist Herb Pankratz's statement quoted in the Washington
Post article, which was reported as follows:

"It's interesting how these stories have changed," Pankratz
noted in an e-mail. "Initially, the accounts claimed the
President made a secret trip to Edwards Air Force Base to view
the remains of aliens who had crashed at Roswell, N.M., in 1947.
Later stories then claimed he had actually visited with live
aliens."

Why am I a bit skeptical? In 1957 I was visiting a 'well-placed'
friend in Palm Springs who said she had a very highly placed
U.S. Air Force source (an officer of very high rank, who she
named, but whose name I do not recall after 47 years, in part
because I didn't attach any great importance to a story that
would be difficult, if not impossible, to verify) who assured
her in no uncertain terms that President Eisenhower had met with
some kind of extra-terrestrials in February, 1954, while
visiting the area.

Anyhow, the story - true or false - already involved aliens as
of 1957, and there was no mention of the President's having gone
there to merely view remains of aliens. One might wonder why a
President should make a trip to view alien bodies over six years
after the alleged crash in New Mexico?

Furthermore, if Sala's information that his book had disappeared
from the books-available list is accurate, then one really might
have cause to wonder if there has been a hired hacker at work.
If so, then in my mind it may add some possible credence to the
story that Eisenhower was in the Palm Springs area on a highly
secret and truly 'far-out' mission, instead of for a mere
vacation complicated by emergency dental work.

And yes, I recall the erroneous story off the Associated Press
line that Eisenhower (a man for whom I had great respect) had
died on the night of February 20, 1954, but I have never heard
any convincing explanation of how that happened. Oh, I could
dream up a fictional scenario for how the story happened that
would fit right in to the meeting-with-aliens claim; but good
golly, Miss Molly, we already have too much fiction and
unfounded rumor in this field.
