Military officials in the United States and Great Britain are saying they are not interested in probing UFO encounters.
Hopefully, this is not the case. Government officials shouldn't necessarily reveal to the public classified information about paranormal phenomena. There are some folks, unfortunately, who will panic when confronted with things beyond their understanding.
Nevertheless, they also shouldn't completely ignore citizens seeking to report strange events in the sky. In 1970, the U.S. Air Force ended its paranormal investigative program, because extraterrestrials allegedly never posed a threat to national security.
There have been so many UFO sightings during the last couple of years, that it's virtually impossible to follow up thoroughly on every encounter. But, if the witness seems credible, the event should be looked into by experts.
Last week, residents of the Washington, D.C. area were alarmed to see what resembled a UFO being transported on the back of a flatbed through the city. After receiving numerous calls about the strange sight, police said the cargo was one of the military's unmanned drones.
