Winston Churchill UFO Questions

Some time ago I wrote about one of Canada's past defense minister's Paul Hellyer, who has made and continues to make, statements alluding to UFO knowledge, specifically that governments have UFO knowledge. Hellyer suggested it (UFO technology) should be used to combat global warming.

Well it seems Paul Hellyer was not the only high ranking political figure with an interest in unidentified flying objects. Newly released, previously classified documents from Britain dating 1952 show that then Prime Minister Winston Churchill was interested as well. Churchill apparently asked his Secretary of State for Air, Lord Cherwell,  for a briefing on UFO's. Churchill asked, "What does all this stuff about flying saucers amount to? What can it mean? What is the truth? Let me have a report at your convenience."

Of course, following the usual response regarding UFO's for the time, the reply Churchill received said that the alleged UFO sightings could be explained as optical illusions, mistaken identification of planes, birds, balloons, hoaxes and perhaps the overactive imagination of delusional people.

This information comes as a result of the Britain's  Ministry of Defense and National Archives release of some 6000 pages of UFO documents covering sightings from 1994-2000 and obviously, as this one is 1952, it must include some other time frames as well. The release includes reports of Scotland's "Bonnybridge Triangle" in 1995 and 1997 and other reports of UFO sightings from staff at Scotland's Prestwick Airport in 1999, a close call that a British Airways plane had with a UFO in 1995, as well as reports from police of a UFO spotted over the North Sea.

Britain started releasing these files recently, and apparently there are lot's of them as the fifth instalment of document releases which is part of a three-year project between the Ministry of Defence and The National Archives......I wonder if this is all part of what I would describe as an attempt to develop some public 'preparedness' as governments try to find a way to tell the public about the existence of UFO's without causing a panic. Releasing information in stages, allowing people to gradually come to grips with the idea of visitors from other planets, may be what is behind these recent releases.

One of the reports included is from March 8, 1997, when several folks witnessed a triangular shaped UFO hovering over the home of former Home Secretary Michael Howard''s home in Kent . Enough people saw the object, that it generated government correspondence, newspaper reports and an RAF investigation.

According to the official response to the sighting, the Ministry of Defence said, "Although the Ministry of Defence has received reports of an alleged ''UFO'' sighting near Michael Howard''s home on March 8, 1997, MoD Air Defence staff have confirmed that there is no evidence to suggest any unauthorised incursion of the UK Air Defence Region on that date."

The best part is, for the next month, you and I can download these files for free, and have a look ourselves at what was reported. You can download them at the U.K. National Archives

David Clarke (featured in the above video) has written an informative book drawing from the information and reports contained in these files, it's called, The UFO Files: The Inside Story of Real-Life Sightings Clarke's book covers over 100 years of UFO sightings, drawing on formerly secret reports released to The National Archives by the Ministry of Defence. Original records reveal how British Intelligence and the CIA investigated many Cold War sightings, from the Roswell incident of 1947 to ghost aircraft, Radar Angels to the RAF's confidential files.

These release of these reports may turn out to be ground breaking stuff if folks take the time to read them. It's important to realize that a good deal of the reports would have been quietly put in a file at the time, perhaps discussed behind closed doors, but certainly not widely released to the public. The official line of governments, then, and for that matter now, is that UFO's, meaning flying craft from other planets, do not exist. Aliens, do not exist. That is what they want us to believe, or at least it is what they wanted us to believe. As I suggested above, that may no longer be the case.

Perhaps now, in 2010, we are coming to a point in history where it is time for the world to know the truth. Imagine how "wild" that would be....the impact on religion, society, people's thoughts and belief's....Even now, in an age of technology beyond the grasp of folks a mere 100 years ago, I think that much of the world would still be overcome with the realization that life exists beyond Earth, that aliens do visit us, that perhaps, folks who made these claims in the past, were not crazy. Natural progression....the people are told when the people are ready to be told, not before....and maybe, just maybe...something is afoot, as Sherlock Holmes would say, and we are on the verge of learning the truth.....I hope I am here to see it......
