Nick Pope, a British media commentator who worked with the British Government's Ministry of Defence (MoD) from 1985 to 2006 has claimed that unidentified flying objects (UFO) are real. In an exclusive story written for the Sun, Pope revealed that most of the UFO sightings could be explained, but around five percent remain mysterious.
UFOs are real
As per Nick Pope, the cases which perplexed his MoD team during the investigation were the near misses between UFOs and commercial aircraft. The former MoD insider argued that many pilots have reported mysterious UFO encounters which still remain unanswered.
"The bottom line was that we knew UFOs were real, but we didn't know what they were. What was much more fun was the other weird stuff that came our way simply because there was nowhere else in government to send it: crop circles, claims that people had been abducted by aliens, ghost sightings and people who claimed to be psychic and volunteered their services to British intelligence," wrote Nick Pope on the Sun.
Nick Pope also made it clear that Russians and Chinese had conducted tremendous probe to unravel the mystery behind UFO sightings. As per Pope, Russians had also researched and investigated about parapsychology, telekinesis, and various other psychic phenomena.
US government's clever move
The former Directorate of Defence Security also talked about Pentagon's secret UFO search program 'Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP)'. He wrote that the US government did a very clever move by not mentioning the word UFO in the name of the investigation program.
"We still don't know much about AATIP, and it may take Congressional hearings to resolve the issue. Either way, if anyone was laughing about UFOs before, they're not laughing now," added Pope.
He also revealed that the UFOs spotted in the gun camera footage of the Royal Air Force were very similar to that of the flying objects featured in the declassified videos released by Pentagon.

The History Channel has released the first trailer for their upcoming UFO drama series called Project Blue Book. For those of you UFO conspiracy theorists out there, you know exactly what Project Book Book means. I enjoy stuff like this and the series looks like it's gonna be great! It's like a retro 1950s version of The X-Files!
Project Blue Book chronicles the top-secret true U.S. Air Force-sponsored investigations into UFO-related phenomena in the 1950s and ’60s, known as Project Blue Book.
The series stars Game of Thrones alum Aidan Gillen who plays Dr. J. Allen Hynek, "a brilliant college professor recruited by the Air Force to spearhead this clandestine operation that researched thousands of cases, many of which never were solved."
Each episode will be based on the actual case files from Project Blue Book and will blend UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history.
The series was created and written by David O’Leary and executive produced by Robert Zemeckis. It also stars iZombie's Malcolm Goodwin, Michael Malarkey, Laura Mennell, Ksenia Solo, Michael Harney and Neal McDonough.
Project Blue Book does not have a premiere date yet, but it will debut sometime in 2018.
The upcoming History Channel series Project Blue Book is set to dramatize the famed secret government project.
