... they benefit from withholding and covering up of UFO sightings.
An unidentified flying object, or UFO, in its most general definition, is any apparent anomaly in the sky that is not identifiable as a known object or phenomenon. UFOs are often associated with extraterrestrial beings. According to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), the term ‘unidentified flying object’ goes back at least to the 1950s: it is recorded in 1953, in a book by the US aviator and writer Donald Keyhoe. The OED also gives a citation in 1956 by Edward Ruppelt, an officer in the USAF, stating that he’d invented the term as a more general one to replace the earlier description for such objects, flying saucer.
UFOs captured the public’s imagination and it wasn’t long before sightings were reported from all over the world. As far back as 1948, researchers in the Air Force had concluded that UFOs have an interplanetary origin. However, governments across the globe have been accused of hiding these sightings and covering up the existence of UFO.
Many believe that international governments have been covering up the evidences of UFOS for more than half a century now. In USA, a few years ago, an array of 20 retired Air Force, Federal Aviation Administration and intelligence office demanded that the Congress held hearings on what they perceived as a long-standing secret U.S. involvement with UFOs and extraterrestrials.
Calling it the “greatest secret of the 20th century,” the officials, who termed themselves “witnesses” of UFO-related events, described a series of military investigations that involved crashes of alien spacecraft, bodies of alien beings, and secret government documents.
The US government is not the only one that is allegedly covered up the UFO evidences and sightings. Some reports that came out in 2013 suggested that in the erstwhile Soviet Union, the Ministry of Defense was working on a secret project aimed at creating a superhuman with paranormal abilities. Under this project, a group of scientists managed to get in touch with a foreign civilization but after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the project got abandoned and the Russian government covered up the files.
UFO sightings have also been reported on the India-China border. In 2011, In fact, it is rumoured that there is a UFO base in the Himalayas along Indo-China border. Though, the Indian government has downplayed the event, the scientific community has failed to provide a satisfactory explanation within the realms of known scientific phenomenon.
In 2015, a specialist on UFOs, Toby Lundh, claimed that on January. 6, 2015, NASA cut abruptly its live stream after a massive UFO appeared on the live feed. Lundh provided a still photo of the alleged UFO to support his claim that NASA attempted to cover up evidence of a massive UFO presence near the International Space Station (ISS) by shutting the live video feed after the UFO appeared on it. Lundh belongs to the section that believes in clandestine interactions between ISS astronauts and technologically advanced aliens.
News of alleged UFO cover up by international governments became a hot topic of discussion again when in April 2015, Paul Hellyer, who served as the Defence Minister of Canada in the 1960s claimed that governments worldwide were resorting to cover up UFO sightings and extra terrestrial contacts. Hellyer, 91, while speaking in an event, “The Disclosure Canada tour” organized in University of Calgary by a group called Modern Knowledge told that UFOs are frequently seen in the skies like airplanes and governments have been hiding the presence of an alien in 2005. He also said that he took part in the tour with the aim of spreading his views on UFOs.
The discussion on the topic was further intensified when controversial new book “The Presidents And UFOs: A Secret History From FDR To Obama” claimed that number of US leaders have known of evidence proving that aliens have visited Earth leaving spaceship debris, the occasional alien corpse and thousands of UFO sightings. Starting in 1941 with the Roosevelt administration, author Larry Holcombe examines the startling discoveries facing a president preoccupied by World War II, the explosion of UFO sightings during the Truman years, first contact during the Eisenhower administration, and the possibility of a UFO connection to the Kennedy assassination.
In 1975, the Nixon administration came very close to admitting that UFOs exist by funding a documentary by Robert Emenegger Holcombe’s book is based on newly declassified and Freedom of Information Act documents, eyewitness accounts, interviews, and leaked documents being authenticated. Therefore, the claims in this book have to be taken very seriously and demand answers from governments.
In another major book on the subject “The Government UFO Files: The Conspiracy of Cover-Up” authored by Kevin Randle, it is claimed that more than 12000 reports on UFOs exist in the US government files known as, Project Blue Book and to cover the truth, the government has wrapped up the enigma of UFOs in a blanket of ridicule that makes witness afraid to mention a sighting.
Military personnel have been ordered not to talk about the sightings they have made and civilian employees have been forced to sign non-disclosure agreements that threaten huge penalties for violation. Many experts on UFOs believe that the governments across the world are deliberately embedding lies into the society as they benefit from withholding and covering up of UFO sightings.
