PROPAGANDA: ‘It was us’, Not UFOs, CIA Claims

The CIA says its most popular stories in 2014 was a previously classified report that linked the spy agency’s activities in the 1950s to UFO sightings. What Americans called unidentified flying objects was really test flights of the U2 spy plane at altitudes of over 60,000 feet.

This is an old propaganda strategy by the CIA (and the USAF), to imply that all UFO sightings can be explained away as misidentifications of mundane objects - like aircraft, balloons, meteors, birds, clouds, the planet Venus etc. The idea that some of the more well documented sightings of flying discs or lights, that performed extraordinary maneuvers, can be explained by U2 spy plane flights, is utterly ridiculous. The documentary 'UFOs, Lies and the Cold War' directly addresses this issue.
