I have often wondered why the US Government is one of the last institutions to not disclose the existence of UFOs. Today I believe I have come to a conclusion.

For starters, the US Military (and NASA) were charged with UFO research. NASA obviously is going to do whatever the pay check tells it to. So the information from NASA isn't totally reliable. But that, in itself, also explains why NASA isn't disclosing data found on Mars concerning the micro organisms that the martian probes already found. After all, if life existed on Mars then it would be 100X more likely that life existed else where in the universe. "They" couldn't allow that information to spread to the people.

Now, the military is obviously putting national security (and their own private security) as their paramount goal. So, information and documentation about how UFOs have been sighted landing near by and in their own bases would be a great threat to them. After all, if it was well known that technology existed which could not only fool their radar systems but also disable nuclear missiles, then it would be a threat to national security. Not to mention out fly our best aircrafts.

Any thoughts?

I think that's the most important sentence.


The other stuff like-- USA doing secret UFO research and NASA being bought out are debatable... and at best small bits of the overall picture. Everything is about National Security.

I have done a bit of research into NASA's on-goings. Sadly I don't keep records (no flaming please, I'll start book marking such things as of now on). However, as a suggestion I recommend going on youtube and watching the "UFO Coverup Documentary - Out of the Blue". Also do a google search for Mars Life.

Aliens represent freedom. Their technologies supposedly allow their societies to live completely free and self-sustaining... energy, food, etc.

I believe the cover up mostly has to do with the technology, because if the people of Earth figured out what other civilizations are capable of then the governments and elites of the world would lose control over us.

The reason the Feds and NASA don't disclose is because back in the '40s when the talks began with the ETs, we (the US military) made a deal with the aliens. We wanted their technology and they wanted to experiment with our people (abductions). We agreed. That's why we've come so far in the advancement of our military weapons, and that's also why people have been abducted for the past 60+ years...how can they disclose? It is up to the ETs to disclose they exist without any consent from our fearless leaders and NASA!

Oh really? It's a hypothesis, definitely not fact. You don't actually have to go outside the realm of psychology to find the reason for silence from the mighty feds or NASA. If you took a random poll on the street many people still aren't sold on ET. NASA and "the feds" are made up of individuals. Individuals have different beliefs. There are ufologists who hardly believe in "aliens," rather their research led them to the arena of human consciousness.

Let's face the music. Saying you believe in ET still isn't very culturally accepted yet.

Actually saying you believe they exists seems to be the cultural norm now...

Saying you were visited by them still gets you the funny look though

Fair enough. But that is rather ambiguous. Is it the security of The People or the security of their establishments?.. The two are not necessarily synonymous.

It's a global issue, not the US Govt.

If the world sees there's UFOs, then all forms of religion dies. With faith gone, anarchy and helplessness will follow.

If the aliens wanted to destroy us, they would have done so ages ago, like when we didn't possess nukes or whatever we have now.

A tad off topic. But hey, it's dinner-time.

I think the disclosure problem definitely has something to do with there being more than one species of extra-terrestrial.

Just my 5 cents.
(Because in Australia we don't have 2 cents
)

No, many other governments have already disclosed something that they know about UFOs (France, Russia and Mexico are great examples). It would seem that the US is one of the last (if not the very last) to even attempt to disclose anything. There stance remains at "They don't exist" when clearly that is a lie.

And I would also a agree that "yes" they could destroy us at any time. But to destroy 6.6+ billion people all at once might harm the planet. Which is probably not in "their" best interests. Perhaps that is why we've seen armadas of UFOs in the sky recently. After all, a massive weapon could destroy not just all life on Earth but render the blue paradise unusable. However a massive ground assult could spare the planet while doing massive harm to us. But that's just my next 2 cents.

A new national poll found that 72 percent of Americans believe the government is not telling the public everything it knows about UFO activity, and 68 percent think the government knows more about extraterrestrial life than it is letting on, the SCI FI Channel reported.

Yes, I guess what I'm saying is people are willing to open up in anonymous polls. However, it's not culturally accepted "as fact" like evolution is (I realize evolution is only a theory) for example.

As for national security... it is a vague term, which suits any government all the better. It can be interpreted many ways....

1) National security could mean denying the existence of ET to keep the status quo from a social/cultural standpoint.

2) National security could mean denying the existence of ET while they continue to study the phenomenon for military applications.

This topic has already been exhaustively debated in the last couple of weeks on this thread. Did you do a search before posting?

1. Disclosure would mean to admit that the military is incapable of performing its reason for existence (i.e. defending the nation), if ET crafts can invade our airspace at will and abduct citizens.

2. Disclosure would mean creating a public panic in which many will act upon "end of days" fears, in questioning the ET motive (especially without being accompanied by the ET's themselves, stating their intentions). You can expect mass riots, looting, hoarding, etc. just as you would for any inevitable disaster where the participants expect no return to normalcy (and crime punishment).

3. Disclosure would mean the disruption of our collective ideas about religion, politics (what do countries mean in the face of other, offworld civilizations), and our own place in the cosmos.

4. Disclosure could incite other governments in the sense of not sharing information, technology, etc.

5. Disclosure would undermine the public's confidence in the government's ability (and right) to rule, and could lead to massive civil uprising.

6. Per the Brookings Report (which is an official government report, in which the panel advised that IF we were being visited by ETs, then it should be kept secret), in the past, we've seen major disruptions to societies and the complete erosion of culture when a lower tech civilization comes into contact with those of higher technology.

7. Most available evidence suggests that the government, a) has no idea what the ET agenda is, b) does not have comparable technology, and c) has no way to counter such technology, at least if it were to be brought to bear, in force. The fact that we haven't been invaded yet is probably reason enough to at least dismiss this as an agenda.

Now, compare this to the reasons FOR disclosure (i.e. satisfying everyone's curiousity, the meaning that man is not alone), and they are simply outweighed by the reasons to maintain the secrecy.

Spot on! You hit the nail right on the head there. If there are people who cannot see this then I'm afraid that I would have to say that they were rather naive.

Another thing that has occured to me is that UFOs could actually be military aircraft. I found a web site (jnaudin.free.fr...) where they have actually created similar crafts. If the public is just now getting into this then perhaps it's something the military has been fooling around with for a while now.
