British ET Expert Says ‘Clock Is Ticking’ on ‘Some Big UFO Stories’
by Lilia Dergacheva | Sputnik News
Nick Pope, a former head of the UK government’s UFO task force, says the latest stunning developments regarding the search for extra-terrestrial life, including the leak of US Navy pilots’ videos, have led him to believe we are on the threshold of some ground-breaking revelations.
British UFO expert Nick Pope is certain that the “clock is ticking” on new disclosures about the phenomenon that he said could have a far-reaching impact in the foreseeable future.
Mr Pope, who used to run the UK government’s now defunct UFO department, cited his sources as saying that the Ministry of Defence is looking into UFO sightings despite its officially-stated scepticism over the matter. UFO investigations were cancelled by the MoD at the end of 2009 on the grounds that they allegedly served no particular defence purpose and were diverting attention from more crucial operations.
“However, I understand from reliable and well-placed sources that this isn’t entirely correct, and that sightings are still being looked at, in the margins of other defence business, with terms like ‘UFO’ being scrupulously avoided, to try to avoid creating Freedom of Information Act liability”, the ex-head of the UFO desk said.
Pope also noted that a task force set up by the US government has already ostensibly shared some interim conclusions with its British colleagues, stressing that some of the upcoming revelations could be really “seismic”.
