CIA says they've given up on Ufos - but no one believes them !

This great article from the Seattle times looks at the disgraceful report from the CIA that basically says they have given up on investigating Ufos (so they want us to believe).

If you go to google and type cia and ufos you will be taken to this page.  It suggests you add this term "CIA's Role in the Study of UFOs, 1947-90" into the search feature to be taken to the 17 page report.

According to the US military and CIA the finishing of Project Bluebook meant that they could convientily say "it case closed" when it comes to UFO's - which is bscially an official excuse so they don't have to deal with the Ufo topic in the public domain. But seriously, how can they keep defending this arguement when it is still based on this outdated study from the late 60's? .

Here's the article extract:
A 17-page report available on the CIA's Web site acknowledges the futility of investigating UFOs by the government agency.

It concludes, "Like the JFK assassination conspiracy theories, the UFO issue probably will not go away soon, no matter what the Agency does or says.

"The belief that we are not alone in the universe is too emotionally appealing and the distrust of our government is too pervasive to make the issue amenable to traditional scientific studies of rational explanation and evidence."

Still, "CIA's Role in the Study of UFOs, 1947-90," makes for fascinating reading.

It was published in 2007 by Gerald K. Hines, the historian for the National Reconnaissance Office.

If you haven't heard of the NRO, it says it "designs, builds and operates the nation's reconnaissance satellites" and is staffed by Department of Defense and CIA employees. It lists its "vision" as "Vigilance from Above."

In the 17 pages, Hines has put together what reads as an objective, thorough history of the CIA and UFOs.

Not that anything the CIA says — well researched as it may be by a historian — will change many minds. As Hines says in his report, "an extraordinary 95 percent of all Americans" have heard of UFOs, and "57 percent believe they are real. Former U.S. Presidents Carter and Reagan claim to have seen a UFO."
