A US government agency has claimed responsibility for most of the UFO sightings that occurred, across the world, from the 1950’s to the 1960’s.
A large portion of humanity looks to the sky, day or night, and searches for signs of intelligent life, other than our own. Flashing lights, fantastic colors, objects that defy our understanding of physics, as well as other fabled characteristics, define what we consider to be an Unidentified Flying Object. Every year, thousands of people, from all walks of life, and from all the corners of the globe, report the sightings of this phenomenon. However, many of these witnesses are chastised and labeled as fools or mentally incompetent nincompoops. Yet, these sightings still occur and they continue to be recorded.
But, how many people really are fools for their claims of witnessing UFO activity? The US, Central Intelligence Agency or CIA, now famous for their inhumane treatment and unlawful apprehension of detainees, has publicly released a statement declaring that over half of the UFO sightings that had occurred, between the 1950’s through the 1960’s, were due to the test flights of the U-2 spy plane.
At the time, the super secret, and highly confidential U-2 spy plane, for the purpose of evading civilian and Soviet radar detection, flew at an altitude that exceeded 18 kilometers, into the sky. Keep in mind, that during this era of human history, it was not believed that any type of manned flight could possibly fly or even reach such outstanding heights, creating the only plausible explanation for the odd sightings, at fantastic heights in the Earth’s atmosphere, to be created by super intelligent entities, from distant planets.
In the agency’s official document,written by Gregory W. Pedlow and Donald E. Welzenbach, The CIA and the U-2 Program, 1954-1974, states:
“High-altitude testing of the U-2 soon led to an unexpected side effect — a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). In the mid-1950s, most commercial airliners flew at altitudes between 10,000 and 20,000 feet … Consequently, once U-2s started flying at altitudes above 60,000 feet, air-traffic controllers began receiving increasing numbers of UFO reports.”
The frequent amount of sightings and influx of letters to the US Air Force, in regard to UFO sightings during that time period, spawned the Air Force’s investigation into the subject, named Project Blue Book. The premise of the investigation was to collect information on the phenomenon and ultimately disprove all of the sightings, possibly blaming the objects on natural occurring weather oddities.
