Churchill’s UFO Issue

Apparently,  Winston Churchill was truly concerned about some UFO activity during World War II which might have upset an already frazzled British nation at war.  Sharing these concerns at the time with Supreme Allied Commander, US General Dwight Eisenhower, Churchill believed that such revelations would cause “mass panic” and ruin religion (huh?), so it should be suppressed.  Here’s a video report:

The US government has had some UFO/USO (unidentified submerged objects) issues itself regarding the highly publicized July 1952 mass sighting over Washington DC, the strange events surrounding the USS Franklin D Roosevelt in 1952 (busy year!), and the formation of “Project Blue Book” to debunk claims from 1952 to 1969.  It was “Blue Book” which revealed evidence that the wreckage in Roswell, NM, in 1947 was in fact a top secret cutting-edge weather balloon that crashed, not aliens.

This kind of stuff is cool to me.  I get Churchill’s concerns and the US feeling the need to set up a government study to assuage nosy citizens on this issue.  If it’s real, their actions make sense without stirring up too much hay.  Like ghost stories, the vast majority of them are easily explainable, but there are a few stories which simply can’t be written off.

I think if the aliens are here, they obviously don’t seem to care much about us otherwise they’d be in our face — what’s stopping them, right?  Maybe they’ve been here 40,000 years doing much the same as they’re doing now — staying busy, keeping to themselves probably in the oceans most of the time, but now being noticed.  So perhaps their apparent curiosity with WWII Europe, postwar DC and a nuclear-armed USS FDR in a joint US/GB maneuver like “Operation Mainbrace” makes sense.  I mean, who doesn’t like to stop and watch an ant war in the grass from time to time?
