[dropcap]The[/dropcap] famous Bentwaters Case in England is one of the most publicized and investigated ufo cases in history. The incident went over multiple nights with multiple witnesses, one of whom touched the craft. These witnesses were military guards at a base storing nuclear weapons. These were not some fly by night publicity hounds. The deputy base commander, Charles Halt, also witnessed this incident. Others witnessed these craft shining beams into the bunkers where the nukes were stored. So, since this is often called Britain’s Roswell, how did the Ministry of Defense, “lose” all the documents associated with this most famous case? Nick Pope, who used to run the ufo desk at the M.O.D., has stated he is not surprised by this loss of paperwork. As he says he has witnessed such a thing time and again in government service. Still, wouldn’t such a famous case receive special treatment? Perhaps not if the government regards this as just another weird thing they cannot explain, but there is also the suspicion that those papers are resting in some top secret file, not among those released by the M.O.D.
WHAT ABOUT ROSWELL?
Interestingly enough, those same type documents that were requested from the Roswell base in 947, happened to burn up in a fire! Convenient perhaps? With the government and military struggling to contain and explain this incident, wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume there might have been some files in Washington D.C. or one of the air bases these pieces of wreckage were flown to, and where ad hoc press conferences were held? Are there no memos that were circulated on this subject. Sometimes I think the Freedom of Information Act should be renamed to the Freedom to Restrict Information Act. These are the two biggest and most publicized cases in each country. And the Australians have also claimed their government documents regarding their most famous case have been “lost” as well. Seems to be a trend, these days. How much longer will we be expected to swallow these lame excuses not to produce the requested documents? A famous example of this government obfuscation is when Stanton Freidman requested documents and got them back with almost the entire thing blacked out. When he held them up on television, it looked rather bad for the government. So the next time he got them, they were redacted with white out, which does not show on TV. These games are getting old.
