I've managed to watch many documentaries on UFO's in the past few weeks and I've been noticing a pattern. Everyone probably is familiar with the Phoenix lights from 1997. The lights clearly are military flares. But, there were probably hundreds of witnesses who described something quite different, and some claimed to see some type of craft. Well, this seems to be occurring in other reported UFO events. Several witnesses report strange lights and craft, but then we see a video of military flares. The TX and PA events of 2009 show this. So I got to thinking. Maybe when our government becomes aware of a mass sighting of UFO's, it dispatches the military to drop flares bend the story into, "see, I told you, just flares." Has anyone else thought about this?
