article imageOfficials Want New UFO Probe

Apparently Dennis Kucinich, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter weren't that far off when they had reported seeing UFOs. A few pilots want the government to dig deeper into the phenomenon
A group of pilots and ex-officials want the United States government to open up new probes into UFO sightings.
"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," they said in a statement released at a news conference.
The panelists come from seven different countries and walks of life, to include former senior military officials. They plan to add a level of credibility to UFO investigations.
A former governor of Arizona was not among the panelists, but was the subject of controversy when a sighting was witnessed by hundreds in 1997. Fife Symington immediately held a press conference dismissing the sightings over Phoenix, but later recanted his story this year.
"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."
He also encourages the re-opening of Project Blue Book, the Air Force's program that investigated over 12,000 sightings (none deemed harmful by the Air Force) between 1949 and 1968. "It would certainly, I think, take a lot of angst out of this issue," he said.
