When all the evidence is compiled and what facts we know are brought forth, could all these UFO sighting really just be a catagory of military technology that is so secret that only a handful of top officals truely know about it?

"They" are here.
"They" have been here with us since before Roswell.
Our government knows it, yet denies their existence, the question should be why?

Very few, imo.
Why would they test top secret aircraft over cities? Answer: They wouldn't. There is a reason they test these things over deserts, in controlled airspace. They would not test craft with odd or few lights over public airspace. They would not risk the public identifying secret aircraft. There is nothing to gain by doing that, but plenty to lose.
Also consider that many sightings are over less developed countries - some that we are not friendly with. We certainly wouldn't test aircraft out over enemy soil - or even allies soil. One mistake, and you hand over your cutting edge technology to a foreign nation.
People also give far too much credit for our technology. I don't think we can do many of the maneuvars witnessed. For example: Terhan 1976 ufo incident - imo, there is no way that was a human created craft.
One of the pilots of the first jet interceptor, Yaddi Nazeri, estimated that the UFO was traveling somewhere between two and three thousand miles per hour. He said that the object "...was beyond my speed and power. The [later] F-4... also could not catch up to the object. That's when I thought, this is a UFO." Nazeri added that "...no country had this type of flying object, so I was thinking, this craft is from another planet."

Clearly the pilot was incorrect about what country could have "this type of flying object", as such speeds were achieved by the early 1960's. The USSR had to use high altitude rockets (not aircraft) to down the U-2, and probably couldn't even do so to a SR-71 without some good luck and planning.
Reading the description on Wikipedia of the event, it sounds a lot like somebody tracking a SR-71 or Soviet equivalent, and the craft dropping IR flares to deceive AA missiles. And no, they wouldn't tell the Iranian Air Force.edit on 15-6-2011 by mbkennel because: (no reason given)
What do you mean there's no denying it?

If the maneuvers were accurate---as opposed to being ECM. Tehran was front line of recon efforts in the Cold War. Could have been an SR-71, or a Soviet craft (they were excellent at rocketry) still unacknowledged or identified.

The technological advancement of the military technology is not the cause of such things. Secondly yes they use these air crafts but it is not our technology and it is by the share fact that people are so silly to see the suspicious connection of technological advancement.
1. You do not go from horse, wheel to space travel and weapons of mass destruction.
2. The jumps of tech is way too far to be call evolutionary stages which is why bzzzz you are wrong.
3. The military would not be flying in the wide open on their flashy crafts like this.
4. All the sightings involved different races and beings that piloted the crafts.
Which is why it involves an outside group and further more which is why it disproves the possibility of it being military crafts.
