The nearly 9,000 pages of UFO-related documents, drawings, letters and parliamentary questions recorded by Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) from
1985 to 2007 are the eighth batch of UFO files to be released to the National Archives (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ufos).
The files are available to view for free online for one month and include the tale of one woman and her daughter from the leafy London neighborhood of
East Dulwich who said they saw lights in a worm shape, wriggling around in the sky before being visited by two men in space suits and dark glasses
early one chilly January morning in 2003.
The men, who carried a clicking transmitter, introduced themselves as Mork and Mindy (ironically also the name of a hit U.S. television comedy in the
late 1970s and early 80s about an alien who lives on Earth). The beings warned the woman not to look at the shapes in the sky because of possible
radiation and offered to wash her eyes with a solution.
After enquiring about her star sign, they left.
Although entertaining, the files may prove a blow to conspiracy theorists who believe the government is withholding information about
"Lots of people continue to believe that the release of these files is just a whitewash and the government is concealing the fact that we are not
alone in the universe," David Clarke, National Archives consultant and Senior Lecturer in Journalism at Sheffield Hallam University told Reuters.
"There is nothing you can do to disprove this -- no matter how many files are released, if people don't see what they want in the files, they don't
believe it's the truth," he said.
In one 1995 memo, MoD officials admit that "higher priorities" had prevented a full-scale study of the thousands of UFO reports they had received
since World War Two and state that the public perception of the MoD's DI55 branch as a defender of the Earth from an alien menace was "light years
from the truth."
I can only conclude that the reason this subject, fell from favor, so far down the list of ( must do) at the MoD,
is due to the fact that by this stage, (taking into account that at least one alien craft had been obtained by the USAF) and that top brass at
(whitehall), KNEW the truth...
Seems we have yet to be furnished with it, it would seem...sadly.
