The Pentagon's Mysterious UFO Program
Whenever I'm in Scotland, I like to ride out to this ruined castle near my family home, lie on its grassy slopes in the dark highland night, stare up at all those stars in the sky.
And wonder on occasion whether there are aliens out there zipping around in their UFOs. And if so could they please come quickly and save us from ourselves?
So I'm glad to see that I'm not alone, or going crazy.
And that the Pentagon has finally admitted that they had, and may still have, a top-secret UFO program.
Which has recently released some videos like this one.
Or the even better one at the beginning of this story.
In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find. Which was how the Pentagon wanted it.
But although those new videos are intriguing, the UFO question and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) has been around for a while.
U.F.O.s have been repeatedly investigated over the decades in the United States, including by the American military. In 1947, the Air Force began a series of studies that investigated more than 12,000 claimed U.F.O. sightings before it was officially ended in 1969. The project, which included a study code-named Project Blue Book, started in 1952, concluded that most sightings involved stars, clouds, conventional aircraft or spy planes, although 701 remained unexplained.
I'm sure there's an earthly explanation for all of them. I wouldn't be surprised if some of those close encounters are brief glimpses of secret military toys made for the Pentagon itself.
And I still find it bizarre that while some people want us to protect ourselves from the threat of an alien invasion, others are preparing to beam messages at any new planets or stars we discover in the vastness of space.
Instead of just listening, we would transmit messages, targeting newly discovered planets orbiting distant stars. Through “active SETI,” we’d boldly announce our presence and try to get the conversation started.
Because like many others I don't think that's a good idea eh?
“ETI’s reaction to a message from Earth cannot presently be known,” states a petition signed by 28 scientists, researchers and thought leaders, among them SpaceX founder Elon Musk. “We know nothing of ETI’s intentions and capabilities, and it is impossible to predict whether ETI will be benign or hostile.”
We don't want to attract even more dangerous alien invaders...
But if there really are alien invaders, and if they are friendly, and unlike the Cons don't want to eat us and destroy our country.
I would ask them a favour.
Please save us from this maniac before he kills us all...
And since Trump by now must have alarmed the whole universe.
Who is to say they won't listen?
And that they are not already here...
Earthlings unite to defeat the alien Cons and Trumpkins.
Only we can save our country.
Only we can save our planet...
