UFO Update, Government Officials Speak Out

We like to keep up with news from the (out of this) world of UFOs and alien encounters and have a collection of posts.  In today’s update we have a couple of stories one is about a new History Channel that makes in depth look at some of the best evidence. Then we hear from economist Paul Krugman about how the threat of an alien invasion might be good for our economy.

Why Is The Government Covering Up UFO Sightings?

From Huffington Post by Lee Speigel

• In 1986, a Japan Airlines pilot saw what he described as an unidentified flying object over Alaska closely tailing his 747. He made an evasive move. His career was thrown into turmoil, but he never recanted what he claimed he saw.

• In 1987, a Federal Aviation Administration executive says the CIA warned him not to talk about UFOs because the public would panic.

• In 1997, former Arizona Gov. Fife Symington mocked thousands of people who said they saw mysterious lights over Phoenix, calling out a staffer dressed in a cheesy ET costume at a press conference. Ten years later, he apologized for lying to the media and the public.

What these events have in common is that they are unveiled on a new two-hour History Channel special, “Secret Access: UFOs On The Record,” that features in-depth accounts from people who have been willing to risk their jobs and reputations to speak out about their remarkable experiences with UFOs.

“The theme of the program is that UFOs exist, but there’s a small percentage of sightings that are significant and haven’t been explained,” said Leslie Kean, author of The New York Times bestseller UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On The Record, which forms the basis of the History Channel special.
