Time to Take UFOs Seriously?
Posted on Nov 12, 2007
Since shortly after Project Blue Book was ordered closed in 1969, the U.S. government has officially ignored claims of UFO sightings, but an international group of former military officers and government officials says it’s time to take the potential national security threat seriously.
There was once a time when the Air Force looked into thousands of sightings, but the military has for years said it sees no need to resume its investigations.
The group, which includes former military officers from seven countries, all say they have seen a UFO or have conducted research into the phenomenon.
However, the Air Force says nothing has happened in the past four decades to justify resuming investigations.
Every year thousands of people say they have seen UFOs in the United States and their claims are usually met with scepticism.
