Group Urges U.S. To Re-Open UFO Investigations

CTV.ca News Staff

The Coalition for Freedom of Information is calling on the U.S.
government to re-open investigations into Unidentified Flying
Objects that it shut down 30 years ago.

James Fox, producer and director of the documentary film Out Of
The Blue joined forces with the Coalition to organize the panel.

"We want to demonstrate that the phenomenon is real and that
it's happening world wide and we want the United States
government to start an international exchange of information
(and) dialogue on an official level, openly," he told CTV.ca

Using previously classified documents, the group intends to
discuss many well-documented cases, including two already
investigated by the American government.

The two cases include a Peruvian Air Force pilot who fired
several rounds at a craft that was not affected and an Iranian
pilot who claims his control panel became inoperable when he
attempted to fire on a UFO.

Both pilots will speak publicly about the events on Monday at a
panel discussion in Washington D.C., moderated by Arizona
Governor Fife Symington.

The panel will include former government, aviation and military
officials, with representatives from France, England, Belgium,
Chile, Peru, Iran and the U.S. It will call for the U.S.
government to re-open its UFO investigations.

The panelists have all either sighted UFOs or conducted an
official investigation.

Symington himself claims that he had a sighting 10 years ago
during his second term as governor. He said he witnessed a
massive object navigate over Squaw Peak, a mountain range in
Phoenix, Arizona.

A pilot and former Air Force officer, Symington said the craft
didn't resemble any man-made object he'd ever seen.

"It was truly breathtaking," Symington told CNN on Friday. "I
was absolutely stunned because I was turning to the west looking
for the distant Phoenix Lights."

The governor said that the incident was witnessed by hundreds of
concerned Arizona residents who called his office.

The U.S. Air Force eventually claimed responsibility, admitting
that they'd dropped flares. However Symington said that what he
saw was something else, as flares don't fly in formation.

There are many high-ranking officials who share Symington's
concerns, and they want the U.S. government to stop telling the
public that all UFOs can be explained in down-to-earth terms.

"I would now like to set the record straight," Symington said.

"My office did make inquiries as to the origin of the craft, but
to this day they remain unanswered."

Fox told CTV.ca that they have overwhelming evidence that,
although they officially ended decades ago, the U.S. government
has continued UFO investigations covertly.

"Several generals are here, and they said that it's difficult
for any military force to disclose information that would
suggest they don't have control, and expose their weaknesses,"
he said.

Fox, who is producing a follow-up to his UFO documentary, thinks
the outing of such information "would definitely have a unifying
effect on all of us, and it would give us the bigger picture of
how we fit into the universe. We're not the only planet with
life or the only intelligence in the universe, which in my
opinion would be rather depressing."
