Of course that's what our space alien overlords would tell them to say...

CIA admits: All those UFO sightings in 1950s? 'It was us'

"Consequently, once U-2s started flying at altitudes above 60,000 feet, air-traffic controllers began receiving increasing numbers of UFO reports." The CIA actually cross-checked the UFO reports with its flight records, it noted in the document, but in instances when it verified the UFO was really a U-2, it stayed mum.

Your Say

Read this carefully. It is ONLY about sightings of objects that were observed to be flying at over 60,000 feet, and thus almost exclusively sightings by aviators or radar operators. Half of THOSE were U2s? BFD. And what were the others?

This explains nothing about the vast majority of UFO reports which were (are) made from ground level, of objects that would not even be visible to the eye, were they flying at 60,000 feet.

And if you DO manage to see a U2 and don't realize it is an (unusually long-winged) airplane, you are no good as a witness anyway, because you obviously need your eyes examined!

UFO's always look like the time period in which they were supposedly seen.

In the 1800's they resembled hot air balloons with ropes criss crossing them.

In the 1950's they looked like a hubcap off a Desota.

Jesus saw a UFO and it looked like an artisan bread.

ALL of them complained about repeated midnight anal probes.

Consider this: if Emperor Kragon, Fourth Lord of the Arachnid Dynasty, Master of All That Crawl Upon the Land and Swim in the Sea wanted to reveal himself and all his warriors to the wretched Earth creatures he would have done so already. Woe be unto any who witness his rath.
Just as a child will respond to a sock puppet held by his parent so do the people of earth respond to a tin and bailing wire airplane or oofo as they call them.
