'Aliens could attack at any time' warns former "BRAINLESS" MoD chief

'Aliens could attack at any time' warns former MoD chief

UK Daily Mail November 10, 2006 CHARLOTTE GILL

UFO sightings and alien visitors tend to be solely the reserve of sci-fi movies.
So when a former MoD chief warns that the country could be attacked by
extraterrestrials at any time, you may be forgiven for feeling a little alarmed.

During his time as head of the Ministry of Defence UFO project, Nick Pope was
persuaded into believing that other lifeforms may visit Earth and, more
specifically, Britain.

His concern is that "highly credible" sightings are simply dismissed.
And he complains that the project he once ran is now "virtually closed" down,
leaving the country "wide open" to aliens.

Mr Pope decided to speak out about his worries after resigning from his post at the
Directorate of Defence Security at the MoD this week.
"The consequences of getting this one wrong could be huge," he said.
"If you reported a UFO sighting now, I am absolutely sure that you would just get
back a standard letter telling you not to worry. ''Frankly we are wide open - if
something does not behave like a conventional aircraft now, it will be ignored.
"The X-Files have been closed down." If these words had come from a sci-fi fanatic,
they could be easily dismissed by cynics.

But Mr Pope's CV - he was head of the UFO project between 1991 and 1994 - cannot be

When he began his job, he too was sceptical about UFOs but access to classified
files on the subject and investigation of a series of spectacular UFO sightings
gradually changed his mind.

And while Mr Pope says that there is no evidence of hostile intent, he insists it
cannot be ruled out.
"There has got to be the potential for that and one is left with the uneasy feeling
that if it turned out to be so, there is very little we could do about it," he said.
"If you believe these things are extra terrestrial craft then you cannot rule out
that what is happening is some kind of covert reconnaissance."

One incident which persuaded him of the existence of alien lifeforms was in 1993.
There were reports of a "vast, triangular-shaped craft" spotted flying over RAF
bases in the West Midlands.
"Most of the witnesses were police and military personnel," he said.
"Hundreds of members of the public also had sightings over a period of several

In another incident in 1980 at RAF bases in Suffolk, staff investigated a suspected
plane crash after bright lights were reported coming from nearby woods.

They found a kind of lunar landing module standing on three legs which then flew
off. The indents it left in the ground were found to emit ten times the normal
levels of radiation. Mr Pope said: "These sort of incidents are why I got so
"In my time I would brief the more interesting sightings up the chain of command to
people like the Chief of the Air Staff and would get the answer back that it was
very interesting and I had clearly done a good job investigating it and that was it.
"Every one is a piece of a puzzle but no one takes it seriously. There needs to be
more resources and people who are prepared to look past the philosophical issues,
look at the reports and investigate them properly.
"Whether you believe these things are foreign air forces testing prototype aircraft
or whether you believe they are something more exotic, with the speeds and movements
they are capable of, it's technology we would very much like to get hold of."

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence insisted that all UFO sightings were
investigated for "evidence to suggest that UK airspace has been compromised by
hostile or unauthorised air activity."

She said: "Unless there is such evidence, the MoD doesn't attempt to positively
identify what was seen."

Mr Pope is continuing his UFO research in a private capacity since leaving the MoD
and is recognised as a leading authority on UFOs and the unexpected.

He has written four science fiction books drawing on his experience at the MoD, and
lectures around the world on the subject.

He has appeared on BBC Newsnight and Radio 4's Today programme and has acted as
consultant on numerous television documentaries.

I think this speaks volumes and is one point made in my blogs about this kind of misunderstanding. These are highly educated people that have not researched their history to see what historical UFO information exist but instead run their mouths in a less productive manner then what would be expected for someone with such knowledge.

I like how he states there has never been hostile intent but to instill paranoia is irresponsible given what he is saying "Aliens could attack anytime".

UFOs have been here on Earth before humans. If they wanted to rule us like slaves they would be but they are just trying to establish a civilized world and are letting us sink or swim in our own progress.

I don't know who's putting out more doushbags Britain or the U.S. but at the moment it's a tie.

I have no idea why anyone would be worrying we do have emergency plans such as playing music which appears to make their heads explode like that documentary "Mars Attacks" or we'll have a drunk guy fly an air force fighter jet into the mother ship like that documentary "Independence Day" or that Tom Cruise flick and we'll sneak some nuclear grenade implanted in a discreet orifice or maybe a jedi knight will be born and some big battle between light and dark forces(good and bad) will insue only to find out his father is the dark force or maybe we'll have "The Justice League" and "The Hall of Doom" like Super Friends or maybe they all live amongst us as shapeshifting humans like that really good documentary "MIB", our imagination could only think up such ideas some originating from myths that were true events and the others from the ones that control unholywood to sort of break the ice when this subject can no longer be concealed.

Movies are not educational for those that literally take notes from sci-fi movies and apply them to everyday life.
