21 June 2013

The National Archives has today released its tenth and final tranche of UFO files, containing 4,400 pages of UFO policy, correspondence and UFO sighting reports covering the final two years of the Ministry of Defence's UFO Desk (from late 2007 until November 2009).

The files reveal for the first time the reasons behind the closure of the UFO Desk and how sightings had become a social phenomenon making tabloid headlines and sparking a disclosure campaign for 'the truth'.

Dr David Clarke, author of the book 'The UFO Files', said: 'The last pieces of the puzzle have finally been revealed with this insight into the last days of the UFO Desk. These files spell out clearly why the Ministry of Defence decided - after 60 years - it no longer needed to keep tabs on sightings, even those made by 'credible' people such as police officers and pilots. The last files from the UFO desk are now all in the public domain. People at home can read them and draw their own conclusions about whether 'the truth' is in these files or still out there.'
Reasons behind the closure

The UFO Desk received over 600 UFO sightings and reports in 2009, treble the amount of the previous year. With this surge in sighting reports, increasing time and resources were needed to manage the UFO Desk, which the files note 'serves no defence purpose and merely encourages the generation of correspondence'.

The files also show that in 2009, Defence Minister Bob Ainsworth was told that in more than 50 years 'no UFO sighting reported to [MoD] has ever revealed anything to suggest an extra-terrestrial presence or military threat to the UK' (DEFE 24/2458/1).
File highlights

A letter from a school child to the MoD asking for the truth about UFOs after she had seen some strange lights (includes a drawing of an alien in a UFO waving, above). The UFO desk sent a bag of RAF goodies in response (DEFE 24/ 2457/1)
A report received via the UFO hotline by someone who had been 'living with an alien' in Carlisle for some time (DEFE 24/2625/1)
Report by a man from Cardiff who claimed a UFO abducted his dog, car and tent while while he was camping with friends (DEFE 24/2623/1)
MoD police officer sighting of pear drop-shaped 'translucent green light' from Royal Navy Base at Portsmouth (DEFE 24/2460/1)

The files are free to download for a month at nationalarchives.gov.uk/ufos.

Look on the bright side here, they've released a huge amount, more than any other country. Kudos to them for staying open for so many years.. Not like they were making money running a business there.

Also, you have to remain skeptical of the fact they just might be patronising all of us and playing it down somewhat.

Let's say the Global Corporate Branch called the UK Gov (Pty)Ltd had real evidence:

"Guys, we got this real irrefutable evidence of life on other planets....What should one do?"

'Let's make it public Sir...and see what happens?'

Something the MOD haven't mentioned: What they will do with the still classified UFO material. Unsolved cases, like the 1970 English electric lightening incident.

Fact is, the likes of Pope, were only privy to certain cases. Those cases that needed top secret clearance - by-passed the usual channels - and probably still does.
