IT is usually accused of being involved in a global cover up to hide the existence of aliens from the general public.

The CIA has uploaded formerly classified papers to its website.
But the CIA may be keen to shake off such conspiracy theories after it uploaded a string of once classified UFO files onto its website.
Just weeks after US presidential candidate Hilary Clinton vowed to get to the bottom of what the Government knows about aliens and UFOs, if she makes it into the White House, the spooks made the disclosure.
Although the documents are real, and in some cases details redacted, the department appeared to have its tongue firmly in its cheek with several references to Mulder and Scully in the announcement.
You will find five documents we think X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity.
In a press release entitled 'Take a peek into Our X-Files', a CIA spokesman said: "To help navigate the vast amount of data contained in our FOIA UFO collection, we’ve decided to highlight a few documents both sceptics and believers will find interesting.
"You will find five documents we think X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity.
"We also pulled five documents we think his sceptical partner, Agent Dana Scully, could use to prove there is a scientific explanation for UFO sightings.
"The truth is out there."
Most of the reports date from the 1940s and 1950s, when the UFO and flying saucer myths really began to take off.
Earlier this month, responding to questions about UFOs from a reporter during an election interview in New Hampshire, Mrs Clintion said: “Yes, I am going to get to the bottom of it.”
Although many UFO sightings often have rational explanations, a small number truly are unexplained.
She even admitted that she realises Earth may have actually been visited by extraterrestrials.
She went on to say she would try to set up a task force to investigate goings on at Area 51, where UFOers claim the remains of the alleged 1947 Roswell flying saucer crash in New Mexico and alien bodies were taken.
