Possible UFO sighting reported in the Journal of Scientific Exploration  (Source: China Daily)
Crazy talk from people wanting news headlines, or 100 percent honesty?

We're used to hearing random crackpots from around the world claim they have seen UFOs, but now politicians and former U.S. pilots want the U.S. federal government to reopen an investigation into flying phenomena that cannot be easily explained.  A panel of two dozen former pilots and government officials are meeting this week in Washington D.C. to discuss the UFOs they have allegedly seen over the past 30 years.

"Especially after the attacks of 9/11, it is no longer satisfactory to ignore radar returns ... which cannot be associated with performances of existing aircraft and helicopters," according to the group.

Most accounts of UFO encounters are not surprisingly dismissed by the government as silly made up fairy tales, but this group wants either the U.S. Air Force or NASA to resume UFO investigations. 

"It's a question of who you going to believe: your lying eyes or the government?" stated John Callahan, former Federal Aviation Administration investigator, who claims the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) tried to keep an unexplained flying craft seceret.

"We want the US government to stop perpetuating the myth that all UFOs can be explained away in down-to-earth, conventional terms," said Fife Symington, a former Air Force pilot and governor of Arizona who claims he saw a UFO 10 years ago.

If we're going to talk about flying objects, I think the U.S. government would be wise to make sure the public is aware of safety survey results that were previously kept secret to avoid upsetting air passengers.  Instead of letting politicians waste time talking about UFOs that may not exist, using funds to inform the public that flying on commercial airlines isn't as safe as they are led to believe would be a better idea.

All I know is that if I ever encounter any type of UFO, the first people I will call are Mulder and Scully.
