UFO cover ups have been going on for a long time. Newly-released government files reveal that Winston Churchill, who was Prime Minister of the UK during World War II, received weekly briefings about UFOs from government intelligence experts. He ordered that one UFO sighting be kept secret so as to prevent "mass panic."
BBC News reports that in 1957, the intelligence committee in charge of UFOs received an average of one sighting a week. According to the recently-released files, there were more than 600 reports in 1996, compared with an average of 240 in the previous 5 years.
Nick Pope, who used to investigate UFO sightings for the Ministry of Defense, says, "The interesting thing is that most of the UFO files from that period have been destroyed."
