CIA admits: All those UFO sightings in 1950s? ‘It was us’
As far as “best of 2014” lists go, the CIA has a pretty irresistible one: On Dec. 22 it started tweeting links to the 10 most popular articles of the year that it shared on Twitter, and the agency arrived at No. 1 yesterday, tweeting: “Reports of unusual activity in the skies in the ’50s? It was us.” The accompanying link directs readers to The CIA and the U-2 Program, 1954-1974, a 272-page document from 1998 the CIA tweeted a link to in early July, reported KAKE at the time.
The upshot of the report is that the CIA was the culprit behind more than half of the UFO sightings logged in the 1950s and 1960s.
As VentureBeat reports, the CIA tested its U-2 spy planes at 60,000 feet, an altitude that seemed impossible for man to reach at the time—leading observers, specifically pilots, to suspect it wasn’t man up there at all.
VentureBeat highlights a portion of the report that explains that in the mid-1950s, most commercial airliners stuck below 20,000 feet; military aircraft kept it below 40,000 feet. MORE FROM SOURCE
When a story begins with *CIA Admits* I immediately read it so I can be prepared for what it is they are admitting to, simply because; if they *ADMIT* to something there is a serious cover-up about to take place or a huge revelation is about to occur and the guys at CIA want to either get away from it or get as close to it as possible.
There are always reasons for ANY action.
Think about this; IF the CIA was the culprit behind more than half of the UFO sightings logged in the 1950s and 1960s who was responsible for the remainder of the sightings?
I’m not a UFO expert, not by any means, but I have lived in the far west of Texas in the high desert, and I DO read articles from MUFON.
At night, out in the high desert you can see more stars than you ever dreamed possible. In my mind there is NO WAY to look at all of those stars, just the Milky Way galaxy, and not think that at least to some degree each of those stars is a SUN, much like the sun that gives us light, life, heat and many other things, good and bad.
Does it not seem logical that out of all of those stars that at least SOME of them support a solar system similar to that of our own and that of all of the possibilities for solar systems, is it not possible, or actually, probable, that there are other planets in THIS universe that are as habitable as is our Earth?
IF such is as possible as some believe then would it not be a part of the equation to think that at least some of THOSE planets may be at least as advanced as we are?
Further; if you take into consideration the age of Planet Earth, a relatively young rock in the grand scheme of things and compare that to the estimated age of the galaxy itself, wouldn’t it stand to reason that there are possibly some planets and beings that are far advanced to us and what WE call intelligence?
IF there were such beings wouldn’t it also stand to reason that they could have possibly discovered rapid interplanetary and intergalactic travel eons ago?
One last thing; if we are alone in the galaxy, which I seriously doubt, but if we are, that would make us the smartest species as well. That is a frightening possibility.
