Churchill's Sinister Cover-up of Space Aliens During WWII

bloody UFOs!Winston Churchill reportedly ordered a cover-up of two RAF pilots' report of a close encounter with a mysterious silver disc in the skies over the northwestern coast of England during World War II. So said the grandson of an eyewitness, one of Churchill's bodyguards at the time, in a 1999 document that Britain's national archives made public today as a part of the declassification all their UFO files. "Mr Churchill," wrote the grandson, a software designer who specialized in spacecraft thermal engineering, in a letter to the Ministry of Defense, "is reported to have made a declaration to the effect of the following: 'This event should be immediately classified since it would create mass panic among the general population and destroy one's belief in the Church'."

Supposedly General Eisenhower was in the room at the time, too. Who knows? Could have happened. But it's kind of funny to think that the idea of alien visitors to earth would do more to destroy religious belief than a few other things that happened during that war.

Also in the declassified files, evidence that UFO reports reached their peak in 1996, when the television show "The X-Files" was popular in England.

Anyway, we all already knew that Churchill knew about the aliens.

I emailed this to all my Dr Who friends before scrolling down and seeing that you embedded the Victory of the Daleks trailer. I think I love you.

Frankly, I wish they had skipped the power ranger Daleks and stuck with the olive drab models. So cool!

Hiding the Dr Who reference after the jump has cheered me immensely. I will stop being bitchy in the DC thread now.

One glance at the headline, and I immediately thought, "the Daleks are REAL!"

Churchill also thought if he kept the macaques on Gilbraltar, Uncle Fritz would never take it from the Bulldog.

That's a strategic spot for the primates to hold.

This story must have been in Gravity's Rainbow somewhere.
