UFOs


"Little Green Men", "Martians", "Outer Limits" ! That is what people
think about when aliens and UFOs come to mind. Aliens have been around, as
far as we can see, since 1561. The question is now asked, How come because
they [UFOs] have been sighted, encountered, and taken hostage; Why have we
been kept in the dark by our governments? "Since UFOs were considered a
security risk, the report on these sightings was originally classified as
secret (Kadrey 22)." The name 'flying saucer' was 'coined' by a Air Force
pilot in 1947, when he stated that he had saw something that looked like a
'flying saucer'. "The government knew about UFOs and have been tracking them
since 1947, which is to be believed when the 'Age of UFOs' started (Stacey 55).
So, through the next pages the theory that UFOs are real because of evidence
the government has covered up, the number of sightings, and the uncountable
number of abductions, will become a reality.

The first reason that is going to be addressed, is the secrecy and
Government coverup of UFOs.

"National Security Agency, or NSA, an acronym often assumed by insiders
to mean 'NEVER SAY ANYTHING' , (Stacey 40) " has been blamed for millions of
UFO governmental cover-ups around the nation. "Our problem is with government
secrecy, because it widens the gap between citizens and the government,
making it much more difficult to participate in the democratic process
(Stacey 40)," says Steven Aftergood while addressing UFO secrecy. The UFO
enigma, or as it is formerly know as the "'Cosmic Watergate' : the ongoing
cover-up of the government's knowledge about extraterrestrial UFOs and their
terrestrial activities (Stacey 36)" is believed to be started during the
Nixon administration, which is still under alot of scrutiny. The Nixon
Administration also established the Freedom of Information Act [FOIA] in the
1970s', it opened the door to alot of truth and more coverups. " I don't
think they would do a 300-page report on everything they detect," says Joe
Stefula who is a UFO researcher. The "military would far rather have people
blame such things on flying saucers than them (Brookesmith 14). "

Several secret UFO Projects have proven the existence of UFOs. One of
the more popular ones was 'Project Blue Book' which "was organized by the
Air Force. "The panel employed a number of scientists, including phycists,
engineers, meteorlogists, and an astronomer. It had three main goals : 1) To
explain all reported sightings of UFOs. 2) To decide if UFOs posed a threat
to the national security of the United States. 3) And to determine whether
UFOs were using any advanced technology that the Unted States could use
( Kadrey 25 ) ." Another less popular two were also organized, 'Project Moon
Dust' and 'Project Blue Fly'. Project(s) Moon Dust and Blue Fly was "efforts
aimed at retrieving man-made space objects that re-enter the atmosphere and
crash (Kadrey 38)." Even with all this evidence, the authorities often
"dismiss such experiences with desperate 'rational explanations' ranging
from 'spots before the eyes' to 'fireflies'. and that old stand-by
'hallucinations' (Brookesmith 21) ."

Although, not all UFOs are UFOs to the government. Such things as
weather balloons, pie plates, and Venus have been proven to cause people to see
things, but it still does not give bearing for what is out there and the
numerous life witnesses of extraterrestrials. The UFO enigma is "the most 'well-
kept and explosive secret in world history (Stacey 36). "

The next issue that is going to be covered to prove the existence of
UFOs is Sightings of UFOs.

'Flying Saucers' , 'fireballs' , or 'Unidentified Flying Objects '.
Whatever the name, people just seem to exactly know what your saying. A private
pilot named Kenneth Arnold "spotted nine weird, cresent-shaped disks flashing
through the air as he was flying over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State,
USA. Accounts of Arnold's experience were flashed around the world by the news
media, and triggered a wave of 'flying saucer' reports across the United States.
By 4 July 1947, there had been sightings in every state but Georgia and West
Virginia; by 16 July 1947, the United States Army Air Forces had received over
eight-hundred fifty reports. (Brookesmith 19)" Then the 'Age of UFOs' was born
on 24 June 1947. Although, "many other UFO sightings turned out to be such
objects as weather balloons, satellites, aircraft lights, or formations of birds
(Kadrey 24), " it still does not give light to all of the other sightings that
do not turn out to be such things.

"Its only when 'Venus' suddenly executes an abrupt right-angle or divides into
two smaller lights that streak away at high speed that we find our attention
attracted and realize we may, in fact, be in the middle of a UFO sighting
(Huyghe 50)." "During World War II, especially after 1943, there were many
reports of balls of light, varying in color and in size from several feet to a
few inches across, flying in pursuit of warplanes. Because these 'fireballs'
never attacked aircraft, Allied pilots assumed they were enemy inventions -
either reconnaissance drones or psychological - warfare weapons. When captured
enemy aircrew were interrogated it became clear that both German and Japanese
fliers had also been pursued by 'Foo Fighters'. The same phenomenon was also
reported during the Korean War, between 1950 and 1953 (Brookesmith 17). "
Although, "many UFO sightings have dated back from the year 1561 (Jueneman 25).
Many people still believe that something is out there and also it seems like the
egyptians had too, it has been proven that the egyptians may have thought
'aliens' to be 'gods'.

Its 6:05 A.M. on the morning of 6 February 1966 at Nederland, Texas.
Three witnesses witnessed a famous UFO event for approximately five minutes. The
primary witness described the event, "the neighboorhood has lit up in a red glow.
My first thought was that a police car was parked nearby or a fire truck. I
called to my wife that something must be wrong in the neighboorhood and to come
and see. Suddenly I realized the light was coming from overhead [Fig. 1 ] . I
looked up andsaw the outline of an object moving out past the pitch of my roof,
approximately two-hundred fifty to five-hundred feet high. The red glow was
coming from beneath the object, about center. It appeared as a stream of light
coming from inside a hole (Huyghe "UFO Crime Lab" 60)." Many UFOs are described
such as this. Is it a UFO or something else? Remember, a UFO is only a UFO if
not explained.

"On the same day, but at 11:50 A.M., five technicians, including a
Colonel and a Major, were watching two P-82 and an A-26 aircraft conduct an
ejection-seat experiment at 20, 000 feet (6100 meters). They viewed a circular
object, a color of aluminum, and at first "resembled a 'parachute canopy' come
into view. The ejection-seat canopy opened 30 seconds later. The UFO, clearly
nearer to the ground, descended three times faster than the parachute, rotating
or oscillating. The men noted no smoke, flame, propellar arcs, engine noise, or
other means of propulsion. The UFO reacheaced ground level and then rose again
(Brookesmith 19)," this clearly states either UFOs are more more advanced or are
not UFOs, but secret military project 'screwups', that would raither have people
like us blame things on extraterrestrials; just so they don't look stupid.

The next topic that is going to be covered is the alien abductions and
government encounters with them.

"During the period of 1969-1971, MJ-12 representing the U.S. Government
made a deal with these creatures, called EBEs (Extraterrestrial Biological
Entities, named by Delev Bronk, original MJ-12 member and 6th President of Johns
Hopkins University). The 'deal' was that in exchange for 'technology' that they
would provide to us, we agreed to 'ignore' the abductions that were going on and
suppress information on the cattle mutilations. The EBEs assured MJ-12 that the
abductions (usually lasting about 2 hours) were merely the ongoing monitoring of
developing civilizations.

In fact, the purposes for the abductions turned out to be:
(1) The insertion of a 3mm spherical device through the nasal cavity of
the abductee into the brain; the device is used for the biological monitoring,
tracking, and control of the abductee.
