British Military 'Suppressed UFO Information'

British Military 'Suppressed UFO Information'

By Pete Harrison

LONDON (Reuters) - The British government tried to cover up one of the country's most famous sightings of an unidentified flying object, a parliamentary watchdog ruled Tuesday.

The "Rendlesham Files," which were finally published on the Internet Sunday, contain eyewitness accounts by U.S. Air Force officers at a military base close to Rendlesham Forest, near Ipswich in eastern England, who saw a brilliantly lit object land in the forest in December 1980.

The incident is widely regarded as one of the most significant-ever UFO sightings -- the British equivalent of the 1947 incident in which a spacecraft supposedly crashed at Roswell, New Mexico, with aliens aboard.

Several people had complained to the British parliamentary ombudsman, Ann Abraham, that the Ministry of Defense had refused to divulge full details of the Rendlesham witness accounts.

Abraham ruled the ministry had "withheld three documents relating to reported sightings of unexplained aerial phenomena in 1980 -- the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident."

A ministry spokeswoman however said the files had not been deliberately withheld and had always been available to anyone who asked.

In late December 1980, U.S. officers investigating what they thought must be a crashed plane in the forest saw a triangular "strange glowing object" that sent farm animals into a frenzy.

"The object was described as being metallic in appearance and triangular in shape, approximately two to three meters across the base and approximately two meters high," reads a report in the file by Deputy Base Commander Lieutenant Colonel Charles Halt.

"It illuminated the entire forest with a white light," he added. "The object itself had a pulsing red light on top and a bank of blue lights underneath. The object was hovering, or on legs."

Skeptics say the witnesses were merely seeing the beam from a lighthouse on the nearby coast.

But the report adds that the next day three depressions seven feet in diameter were found in the grass and that readings of beta and gamma radiation were ten times higher than normal. Disturbances were also noted on airforce radar at the time.

Later in the night, a second UFO was seen, described as a red sun-like light. "At one point it appeared to throw off glowing particles and then broke into five separate white objects," said the file.

A Ministry of Defense (MoD) memo in the file notes that: "No evidence was found of any threat to the defense of the United Kingdom. In the absence of any hard evidence, the MoD remains open minded."

Until last week, only around 20 members of the public had seen the file. The government said it would also be publishing other files on reported UFO sightings on www.mod.uk.

The Rendlesham File contains an MoD memo suggesting British requests for audio tapes made by the American officers at the time were brushed aside by the U.S. Later reports by UFO enthusiasts claimed that photographs and tapes were taken away by senior U.S. officers.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

well supposedly you can get any records from the US government that don't relate to national security due to the Freedom of Information Act.

It is a HUGE pain in the ass to form a report that explains why you want this information, though - you should simply be able to write them saying "hey gimmie everything you got on this subject; FIA" and they comply completely.

We're paying all their bills, you know? I'm suprised people let them get away with keeping so much information on how they're spending their "allowance" from us.

do people still trust the us government this day in age? unfortunately yes

If you aliens are monitoring the forums of your allies here on earth......come teach me what you know :laugh:  If you let me use some of your technology, I'd be more than happy to take care of our bastard government.

Uh, I've never seen Shroomism refer to the "end of the world". It's a transformation process, which we are ALWAYs going through, but I think it's going to just keep getting faster and faster until we hit the "maximum point of novelty" as McKenna phrased it.

What happens then? I think that whatever state of consciousness we are in at the time will instantly manifest around us, kind of like lucid dreaming. Whatever you think will happen, does.
