"Britain's Roswell" Exposed in New UFO Files From British Ministry of Defence
After decades of waiting, British ufologists finally have the last batch of declassified UFO documents from the British Ministry of Defence—the last three documents were released on New Year's Day, and contain "UFO witness accounts, photos and sketches of mystery objects, and MoD and official reports of sightings."
The documents' release is part of a decade-long initiative by the British government to release all of its UFO-related files. This latest release will cover the last three remaining documents. In June of last year, another cache of fifteen documents was released which contained information on a number of high-profile incidents, including the Rendlesham Forest sightings, which have been called "Britain's Roswell."
At the center of these releases is Nick Pope, a former employee of the Ministry of Defence who worked with their UFO program.
Pope has become one of the primary advocates for the release of the British government's UFO files, but he has admitted that the new releases haven't proven anything yet.
According to Pope, "There's no smoking gun in these files that says UFOs are extraterrestrial, but there are plenty of interesting sighting reports and other related material relating to MoD research on the subject."
Of course, it's hard to keep a good conspiracy down.
Pope has claimed that the release of the newest documents over the New Year's holiday was a ploy designed to make sure they went unnoticed by the majority of the public, and that the information shared by Luis Elizondo from the recently revealed Pentagon UFO program, called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, shows that national governments are coordinating the release of sensitive UFO data to the public.
On top of this, advocates like Pope have claimed that the government's choice not to digitize the documents and instead keep them as paper copies in the National Archives is an attempt to keep the public from accessing them.
It appears that these last three documents are the end of the rainbow for British ufologists, but instead of a pot of alien gold, they just have a lot of paperwork to sort through.
