The reason for the British UFO desk being forced to shut down a few years ago has been revealed, the CS Monitor reported this Friday, June 21. While these UFO Britain sightings and allegations were still in high number at the time in 2009, the government closed down the program due to a lack of defense benefit and costly expenses for the country.
What’s more, these UFO “X-files” of sorts are now privy for public viewing.
The UFO Britain file release was further initiated earlier this week after it was deemed that the final UFO files should no longer be considered secret government information, and that the lack of defense or security benefits for the country made them acceptable to be revealed. News of the formerly declassified Ministry of Defense archives isn’t necessarily new, however, as this week only marks the 10th and very last divulging of the UFO sightings and public reports in recent months.
This latest batch of British X-files covers the former UFO desk’s Ministry of Defense’s reportings of alien abductions and even alien-countering weapons from 2007 all the way to 2009.
The Britain UFO files also reveal to readers that the national military opted to close down the UFO desk and observation program for good three years ago after a lack of any real reason to keep the program alive was given; in addition to costly government expenses, no actual security purpose or defense benefit could be proven from the program.
From these X-files to document pages on UFO sightings, it was said that British operations chronicling unidentified flying objects [was] “consuming increasing resource, but produces no valuable defense output.”
From over half a century of study and recording, not one actual UFO Britain report “has ever revealed anything to suggest an extraterrestrial presence or military threat to the U.K.,” offered the memo.
Over 600 UFO sightings alone were recorded in 2009, which may have led officials to question the energy and money being spent into the program, as well as its overall value and authenticity prior to the desk being shut down. No real evidence of actual UFO sightings have been shown in the files.
“The level of resources diverted to this task is increasing in response to a recent upsurge in reported sightings, diverting staff from more valuable defense-related activities,” concluded one document.
The Britain UFO files — once classified as top-secret information and unable to be examined by the public — have now been made available online as well, added I4U, as Internet surfers can access many of the former English UFO desk’s call-ins of sightings of UFOs, conspiracy theories, and actual X-files.
Thus, although the UFO desk was officially shut down by the British government in 2009, and while the files have stayed secret in the interim, they are indeed “unidentified” no longer.
