Winston Churchill UFO request revealed

Posted by 3citynewswire on 02/20/2010

New documents released by the Government reveal former prime minister Winston Churchill expressed curiosity in “flying saucers” and requested a briefing from his ministers.

The “Churchill Memorandum” sent from the wartime leader on July 28 1952 to Lord Cherwell, secretary of state for air, is one of hundreds of UFO files released by the Ministry of Defence and National Archives.

In the note, Mr Churchill briefly writes: “What does all this stuff about flying saucers amount to? What can it mean? What is the truth? Let me have a report at your convenience.”

The response to his memo, explained that following an intelligence study conducted in 1951 the “flying saucers” could be explained by “one or other” of the following four causes: Known astronomical or meteorological phenomena; mistaken identification of conventional aircraft, balloons, birds etc; optical illusions and psychological delusions; and deliberate hoaxes.
