    So, apparently "they" are still there...

    <<you know i totally agree with we can't be the only sentient life form in the universe let alone our galaxy. just don't get why they wouldn't make themselves known>>

    gun camera from 2004

    The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ran from 2007-2012
    spt by Sen Harry Reid

    <<secret program.. wonder how much "Iraq/A-stan war funding were diverted to this after it was diverted from somewhere else for the war>>

    I saw that in the news. I am a bit skeptical, but it is interesting!

    yeah

    you can slough off the stuff from the 50's to 80's or so

    chalk it up to old tech, social gullibility, no sci fi "culture" in the media that caused ppl to see things they just saw in some B movie, etc

    but now?

    if a highly trained military pilot with a lot of yrs experience with the suite of tech he/she has at their disposal says they see an UFO (which, remember, does not have to mean extraterrestrial), then you got to give a little more credibility

    also, the congressional support for it

    if it were backed by a conservative GOP dude, i'd say they were just finding a way to hide the 'slush fund'. but it being Reid, a lib dem, that kind of gives it a bit more cred as well

    If you ever see a working, flying drone in real life, and I guarantee you will, no UFO sighting with cellphone cameras or video or photos will fool halfway intelligent people. In the age of Photoshop and After Effects and CGI, isn't it pointless unless there is indisputable physical proof corroborated with security cameras and satellite footage?

    same with Bigfoot and the other creepy crawlies

    there should be no excuse with all the cell phones and easy to use digi cameras

    this new stuff was from 2006 i think. these things were at a higher alt and staying ahead of the jets

    I DO BELIEVE THAT if something is up there flying around, it is entirely terrestrial

    minimum = govt/military or corporate secret project. probably why so many sightings are over deserts or other largely uninhabited areas, great place to test fly stuff without eyes on the ground

    maximum = and I stretch here, even my own limits of what I would believe- some other civilization on earth that we do not know about. yes i know, crazy yes?!

    I only say this at the extreme because the archaeological record of life on earth gives proof to how many species have spent centuries, or more, surviving underground. like primitive mammals did after extinction events

    i just think it is a little obnoxious to be in the 'never,ever' crowd

    the truth, i think, is somewhere in the middle ,as it usually is

    I am betting that somewhere someone Harry Reid knew was making money off this! :P

    I know why they haven't contacted us--- be honest why would they want to. We are full of bitchers, moaners, and whiners! They would only want to nuke the planet! :P

    they would either:

    upon seeing how hopeless we are, despair at their finally finding other sentient life only to see we are a lost cause and a scourge to the universe and commit mass suicide

    or

    lay down a virus of extinction level proportions

    i am sure it is possible

    but--and you know even though i go more right then left, if he were a conservative GOP'r I'd lean more to the money angle

    but, ya never know

    ok
    but who'd be giving him-or anyone- a kickback on supporting the "fact" that "they're here"? Art Bell? :)
