It appears that Sir Winston Churchill may have ordered a highly classified investigation into UFO’s and even covered-up evidence of alien lifeforms.
A number of declassified documents have revealed that Sir Winston Churchill asked a task force of researchers called –the Flying Saucer Working Party – to discover “the truth” behind the significant number of UFO sightings.
Interestingly, the official report explained away numerous observations –including the set of enigmatic objects that overflew the US capital, which were picked up by dozens of military radars.
Adding to the mystery, it is reported that in a deathbed confession, Sir Winton Churchills personal bodyguard revealed that Churchill covered up a umber of UFO sightings over Britain by the RAF itself.
It is well known that towards the end of the second world war, RAF pilots –and pilots all around the wrold— reported encounters with mysterious crafts which were called ‘foo fighters.’
Many people assumed these enigmatic objects were top-secret weapons being developed by the Nazi.
In fact, it is known that the Nazi’s developed a number of strange weapons for years hoping that these would give them the upper hand in the war.
One of the most interesting UFO encounters occurred in July of 1952 when US Air Force fighter jets were scrambled two consecutive weekends after military radar picked up numerous unidentified flying objects over a ‘restricted zone’ over the white house.
In response to the encounter, on the 18th of July, 1052, Sir Winston Churchill wrote to his Secretary of State for Air Lord Cherwell a memo asking an urgent investigation into the matter.
In the letter –which is known as the Churchill Memorandum— he wrote:
“What does all this stuff about flying saucers amount to?
“What can it mean? What is the truth?
“Let me have a report at your convenience.”
In response, Lord Cherwell pout together a task force called the Flying Saucer Working Party.
The secret task force admitted it was impossible to rule out ‘flying objects of extraterrestrial origins developed by beings unknown to mankind on lines more advanced than anything we have thought of.’
However, they continued saying that it was much more likely that alleged sightings were regular aircraft, balloons, birds or other natural phenomena, optical illusions, deliberate hoaxes – or “psychological delusions.”
Nothing more was investigated until 1999, when the grandson of a retired RAF officer wrote a letter to the Ministry of Defence inquiring about an incident in which Sir Winston Churchill supposedly banned the reporting of a UFO encounter above the eastern coast of England.
The airman who remained unnamed –who was Churchill’s personal bodyguard— suggests that an RAF reconnaissance aircraft was returning from a mission ver parts of occupied Europ when all of a sudden it was ‘shadowed’ by a ‘metallic UFO’ off Cumbria.
It is said that the crew of the RAF reconnaissance aircraft even photographed the object which they say “hovered noiselessly” in extreme proximity to the aircraft.
It is said that when the UFO encounter was mentioned to Churchill, he supposedly ordered the incident to remain highly classified for over half a century since such report could cause ‘mass panic’ and destroy ‘faith in God.’
It is believed that Churchill was left shocked by the sighting:
“This event should be immediately classified since it would create mass panic among the general population and destroy one’s belief in the Church.”
