UFO Reality Confirmed
Whilst 60% of the world's population are now believers in intelligent alien life, the remaining 40% of the world remain either skeptical or undecided and Phil Larson of the White House administration, a fairly low-level member of staff at the White House, in response to a petition signed by over 12,000 people, released an official statement in 2011 to neither deny nor confirm the existence of advanced extraterrestrial intelligence.
Larson also claimed that there was no credible evidence to suggest that there had been any kind of UFO cover-up or that there is any credible evidence to suggest that an extraterrestrial presence has ever engaged any member of the human race - others would disagree. 60% of the world's population now believe that extraterrestrial intelligence exists yet only 37% of the world's population believe in God. Despite common assumption these two beliefs are not incompatible and in actual fact, even the bible speaks of beings who came down from above (elohim, nephilim, etc - extraterrestrials; off-worlders).
By 2002, well over ten years ago, opinion polls showed that as many as 56% of people believed extraterrestrial (alien) UFO's to be real and 45% of them believed that they had visited Earth. The figures now, over ten years later, are even higher and rising. Despite the statistics, the UFO subject is rarely debated or talked about publicly for fear of ridicule, except within the UFO community and within UFO circles where everyone has a shared interest, yet many people do, beneath their public veils, have a very real interest in the subject despite perhaps not admitting to it.
Unfortunately for Phil Larson of the White House administration there is now a realm of valid, credible and corroborating information available from several various reputable sources which has come out over the course of the past few decades and the findings of many years worth of research, experience and investigation has now been sufficiently documented and published. If there's anything we can definitely be sure of it's that the UFO phenomena has undoubtedly become so obscured with layers and layers of disinformation and misinformation, much of which is designed to mislead away from the truth, that it's obvious there is a deliberate attempt at obscuration.
The fact remains that researchers like Wilbert Smith have discovered that the UFO phenomena is of the highest security classification known to man, rating even higher than the H-bomb. If the UFO phenomena is not a threat to national security then why is it classified so highly and why, when questioned, do certain authorities claim that they cannot release certain information for national security reasons? It makes no sense. What are we supposed to make of it when even the government are contradicting themselves over the phenomenon?
The amount of people involved in the UFO disclosure movement now numbers into the thousands and is rapidly growing worldwide and there are now hours upon hours of witness testimony available from government officials, military officials, astronauts, pilots and police officers from all areas of the world. There are also many eyewitnesses (including myself), contactees, abductees and even technicians and scientists who now claim to have been involved in the reverse engineering of extraterrestrial technology or the building of deep underground military bases where aliens were involved.
Many people from all walks of life and all areas of the globe have come forward with similar claims over the course of the past sixty years, affadavits have been signed and deathbed testimonies have been left behind. All the while our technological progress has been outstanding. Still, many people remain skeptical and understandably so. If there is indeed some kind of extraterrestrial presence visiting Earth, or if they have done in the past, it opens up a whole other world of questions - how did they get here? Where are they from? What is their intention? What are they like biologically? Are they hungry? Do they have families? What's it like on their home planet? - and so on.
From the fifties onwards our technological development soared and allowed mankind to eventually leave the planet to explore the vast depths of space yet such technological development was not possible until this side of 1947. Is it simply just coincidence that unidentified aerial objects were increasingly being reported and being picked up on radar leading up to this year? Is it simply just coincidence that the subject started to receive so much ridicule in the years following the Roswell incident?
The official story told by many is that the term "flying saucer" was first used by America aviator, Kenneth Arnold, in June 1947 after he witnessed as many as nine saucer-shaped craft flying in formation. However, although it may be widely publicized as the first ever case to use the term "flying saucer", strictly speaking, this is incorrect. Arnold had actually said the objects "flew like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water." In reality, the first case to ever use the word "saucer" actually happened as early as 1878, when Texas farmer John Martin used the term to describe an object he witnessed whilst out on a hunting expedition - UFO's are not just a modern phenomena and the official history shows that UFO sightings were even more commonplace prior to 1947.
Official records show that the UK's MoD had actually investigated a sighting of six "flying manhole covers" dating back to 1926. Although "flying manhole covers" can actually be a very real event for a variety of conventional reasons, these very real events have also been used to debunk certain UFO incidents yet the fact that there were as many as six of these "flying manhole covers" which had been spotted in the skies by a UK pilot in 1926 suggests that there may be more to the incident than we have been led to believe.
Furthermore, according to NARCAP, there are another 1,304 incidents which took place in the same area between 1916 to 1926 - all of which were sighted by UK pilots. The debunkings of such events often raise more questions than they answer. It seems that, if anything, only the cover-up of UFO's is a modern phenomenon and not the UFO's themselves.
In 1916 another UK pilot had reported seeing a row of lights, resembling lighted windows on a railway carriage, which rose into the air before disappearing. Prior to these significant sightings, a particularly credible case took place in 1904 when three of the crew members of the USS Supply sighted three bright red egg-shaped and circular objects flying in echelon formation approaching beneath the cloud layer, before changing course and then "soaring" above the clouds, leaving Earth within an estimated time of two-to-three minutes. Lt. Frank Schofield, who reported the incident, reported that the largest object was so huge it looked like "six suns".
In August 1926 Nicholas Roerich, a Russian explorer, reported that his team had sighted "something big and shiny reflecting the sun, like a huge oval moving at great speed. Crossing our camp the thing changed in it's direction from south to southwest. And we saw how it disappeared in the intense blue sky. We even had time to take our field glasses and saw quite distinctly an oval form with shiny surface, one side of which was brilliant from the sun.”
During World War II, metallic spheres and balls of light were sighted by Allied and Axis pilots and sometimes photographs were taken. Most of the sightings were dismissed as misidentifications of the planet Venus, hallucination due to oxygen deprivation and/or secret German weapons. However, official information which was later released showed how some of these objects had been tracked on radar travelling at thousands of miles-per-hour and making sudden right-angle turns which seem to defy the laws of physics as we know them.
Many government pilots have now gone on record to testify to what they know and there is plenty of declassified information which shows how some of these objects were very real metallic objects that were under some kind of intelligent control. There was, quite simply, no scientific explanation for what was happening. Within two months of the Roswell crash, the National Security Act of 1947 was passed, which granted unprecedented power to specific military and appointed personnel inside the government in order to maintain secrecy and to carry out covert/black projects without any public oversight whatsoever.
According to researchers, all information became subject to security classification (of which there are many) and compartmentalization and could only be accessed on a "need to know" basis. It is believed by many that a highly secretive group, called MJ-12 (Majestic-12) was set up to specifically deal with the UFO/extraterrestrial presence and crash debris/body retrievals thereof.
As aforementioned, if there really is an extraterrestrial presence visiting planet Earth then this results in a multitude of other questions needing to be asked and, for some people, trying to acknowledge such a fact can simply be too overwhelming to deal with. The multitude of questions that could come flooding to the average person's mind upon learning that there is a very real extraterrestrial presence amongst us, could ultimately drive them crazy if it doesn't fit their current paradigm and so there is also a very real need for secrecy and not just for this reason alone.
Humankind needs to be conditioned into accepting such a reality or there would, quite possibly, be social upheavel if there were ever to be an official government announcement. Even then, some people would still choose not to believe simply because it doesn't fit in with their preconceived notion of reality. In addition, it would drive others crazy (as it may have already done) and several mass suicides have already taken place in the past because of UFO beliefs. Leo Festinger detailed this in his book, When Prophecy Fails - a book about cognitive dissonance and the followers of a UFO occult.
More recently it seems that Phil Larson's official statement, denying that there is any evidence of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race, has been overstepped by those pushing for disclosure with Dr. Steven Greer's Sirius documentary which was released 22nd April 2013 (Earth Day), the 5-day Citizen's Hearing On Disclosure which took place at the NPC (National Press Club) in Washington, DC from 29th April to 3rd May 2013 and then the 44th MUFON 2013 Symposium at the JW Marriot in Las Vegas, Nevada which included four days of presentations and a trip along the Extraterrestrial Highway, up to the border of Area 51 (amongst other activities).
Here are some significant quotes related to these events:
"It's not about overthrowing the Pentagon, it's about leaving them behind" - Dr. Steven Greer
"If the congress won't do it's job, the people will." - Slogan for the 5-day Citizen's Hearing On Disclosure
"It is now time to put away this embargo of truth about the alien presence." - Dr. Edgar Mitchell, 6th astronaut on the moon
Dr. Greer had originally started the Project Starlight Coalition (PSC) in the early nineties which soon evolved into the Disclosure Project, a non-profit organization aimed at ending the secrecy surrounding UFO's, disclosing the facts about the (alleged) alien presence and opposing the weaponization of space.
However, Greer is not the one who is providing the testimony, he is simply the man that arranged it and so all eyes should be on the actual witnesses.
In May 2001 at a Disclosure project conference at the NPC, Washington DC, over twenty government and military witnesses came forward to testify that they were willing to stand before congress and swear under oath that what they were saying is the truth.
Within a matter of weeks the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon took place, taking the focus off UFO disclosure completely.

It seems to me that the UFO promotion community has backed the US government and all governments into a corner that serves only the UFO promotion community. And how?
No government can prove that it does NOT have something; the US government CANNOT prove that it does not nor never has had any alien artifacts or bodies.

Oh, there's a variety of reasons indeed! And plenty of evidence they exist! Thanks for commenting.

I feel that UFO's and aliens do exist and that the government is trying to shield us in order to not lose our trust and a variety of other reasons.
