I liked this documentary; it was an excellent show on the history of military saucers, although if you are at all familiar with UFO history and data,
you will find that it draws an obviously incorrect conclusion. The writer/producer Justine Kershaw seems to have arrived at her conclusion first:
UFOs are actually government produced war-machines kept under wraps by “psych-ops” specialists in the military. She interviews engineers and
developers to illustrate her point. If the facts she turned up did not support her argument, she would not include them. What the viewers do not
know she will not tell them.
Here are some of the facts that the author seems to have overlooked (not presented) that do not support the ‘Government Made All UFOs” case:
• The characteristics of the craft and their occupants do not support control by on-board humans (e.g., large changes in inertia, craft
too small for humans, they contain light-based ‘weapons’ or beams, various instances of ‘high strangeness’, noiseless flight, sightings of
• The witnessed craft do not seem to be increasing in technological complexity.
• Analysis of the most well-publicized and well-documented sightings shows behaviors inconsistent with any sort of logical military testing. For
example, it would be absurd that the military would be conducting aerial test flights near O’Hare airport or a Nuclear Missile silo (without letting
the CO know). It would also be absurd for the military to mutilate cows in farmer’s fields when they could raise their own.
• When project “Sign” was completed (by the US Air Force), the conclusion of the report was that UFOs were real. They renamed it project
“Grudge” then project “Bluebook” to try to prove the opposite.
In the same respect, here are some of the not-so-clever devices included in the documentary that are used to indirectly discredit the UFOs as Alien
• The use of terms like “Amateur UFO Spotters”, while showing low-budget footage of panic-stricken people and cheap UFO videos.
• Play silly, campy UFO songs from the 50’s to make it seem even more ridiculous.
• Imply that “pulp writer” Marine Corps officer was the first to announce that UFOs were from outer space.
Given ALL the data, it seems much more logical that SOME UFOs are in fact extraterrestrial space craft, and governments have been scrambling to
reverse-engineer them with various degrees of success. I will admit that I might be wrong, but so far nothing has dissuaded me from this conclusion.
