The Ministry of Defence went to extraordinary lengths to cover up its true involvement in investigating UFOs, according to secret documents revealed under the Freedom of Information Act. The files show that officials attempted to expunge information from documents released to the Public Records Office under the "30-year rule" that would have revealed the extent of the MoD's interest in UFO sightings. In particular, the ministry wanted to cover up the operation of a secret unit dedicated to UFO investigations within the Defence Intelligence Staff. UFO conspiracy theorists have likened the unit, called DI55, to a sort of "Men in Black" agency for defending the Earth against invasion but the released documents show this is far from the truth. One 1995 memo from DI55 to the MoD's public "UFO desk" said: "I have several books at home that describe our supposed role of 'defender of the Earth against the alien menace' - it is light years from the truth!"

More like "Women in Silver."

Gabrielle Drake, last seen playing the elderly mother of Detective Inspector Lynley on PBS mystery. No silver catsuit or purple wig in view but maybe next season, who knows.
If there is nothing to UFOs then why all the secrecy, especially for events that are decades old?
Because it's embarrassing as hell to admit that you're "investigating" UFOs.

No more embarrassing then investigating oval office b/j's IMHO.
Interesting that they're still calling the Rendelsham incident a "hoax". Turns out that the guy who confessed to it changed his tune when it was demonstrated that he had the timeframe wrong. It may yet BE a hoax - but not based on any testimony to date.
That awakens bad memories....
