London, Nov 18 (ANI): With claims of UFO sightings increasing day-by-day, the UK Government has recruited a squad of special FBI agents who will be functioning like Mulder and Scully of the X-Files to investigate the matter.
Leading scientific researchers in Whitehall, puzzled by the growing number of extra-terrestrial activity, contacted a top US agency for the purpose of investigation.
The job of the undercover unit, which will begin its work in a high-tech London lab, will be to analyse the unexplained photography and debris, before they move into the field to obtain explanations of bizarre crop circles.
But cynics have stated that revealing the secret files has only put the publics over-active imagination into overdrive.
For a lot of people its just a sci-fi fix, the Sun quoted Georgina Grounded of an unnamed local council as saying.
There are those who think that this Fox Mulder fella cuts a bit if a dash and are just desperate to believe.
But these are credit crunched times. We need people with down-to-Earth attitudes, she said.
The number of UFO sightings this year has increased far more than the total of 135 reported to the Ministry of Defence for the whole of 2007.
Malcolm Robinson, founder of research group Strange Phenomena Investigations, acknowledges the fact that something is going on.
Something really bizarre is happening in the skies over the UK, he added. (ANI)
i want to believe ufo exist, but i dont believe that usa governments are keeping it a secret. Its been decades and we’ve been thru multiple democrat and republican governments. Are we to believe that both parties, no doubt thousands of ppl involved are willing to keep this thing a secret?
If there is a secret, it is being kept by a very few, not thousands.
All else is window dressing.
Now, look at the red light, please and say "swamp gas!".
Agent K, meet Agent J. Agent J, meet Agent K.
Brits should have tapped the USPS to get to the bottom of this thing. ... And Monk knows things about odd weaponry, too.
Pinging the UFO list.
I’d never seen that one before. It’s just so... fitting. Even the frock on Scully.
