I agree with this.
I do find it interesting though that none of the MOD's statements seek to deny the existence of UFOs, but rather, point to a lack of threat posed by
them. The inference is that, yes, there might very well be unexplained phenomena in the sky, but we can't do anything about it and whatever it is
doesn't seem to be posing any sort of threat, so why waste money, time and resources that could be better spent elsewhere.
I don't really see what harm closing down this facility will do anyway. From my understanding it was little more than a hotline to report sightings
and as the FOIA files have shown we've had plenty of them over the last 50 years and, though some of it provides interesting evidence, nothing
concrete has ever emerged. So why carry on?
I know some may think that next week, month or year definite proof may reveal itself, but surely anything that irrefutable would be apparent
regardless of whether this department was still open or not.
