Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.


Former MoD UFO Desk administrator, Nick Pope, has issued a very accusatory statement. Pope, a person who for years worked for the British Ministry of Defense, is now lashing out and biting the hand that once fed him.

David Clarke, the MoD’s current spokesperson, had recently announced some very disappointing news to Ufologists and believers across the globe. The MoD found no evidence whatsoever of a possible UFO threat to the United Kingdom. That throughout the years of collecting data and photographic evidence, nothing came forward that alluded to the fact that we’re being visited by intelligence life outside our planet. At least nothing that would concern us, civilians.

Nick Pope fired back at Clarke for his statements on the release of the MoD’s last batch of UFO documents,  referring to Clarke as an ‘useful idiot’.

WASHINGTON, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A claim by the British Ministry of Defence that UFOs have no defense significance is “designed solely to keep Parliament, the media and the public off our backs,” according to former MoD UFO Desk administrator Nick Pope.

Pope’s startling statement was in response to the MoD’s release last week of what it says is its final batch of UFO documents. Official MoD spokesmen and one self-styled UFO expert, David Clarke, claim that the MoD found no evidence of a UFO threat to the UK and, therefore, closed its UFO Desk. The subsequent, widely-publicized declassification of its UFO documents—the implication being that nothing remained hidden—was intended to demonstrate the MoD’s public transparency on the UFO issue.

In reality, Pope says, “the UK’s Freedom of Information Act contains wide-ranging exemptions covering areas such as defense, security and intelligence” and the newly-available documents had already been “judged to be unclassified” before their release.

Regarding David Clarke, Pope says, “Some people would probably use the term ‘useful idiot’ to describe his parroting the MoD ‘no defense significance’ sound bite.”  –source: Reuters

These types of public disinformation acts occur all the time, and not just in Ufology mind you. It’s well known that governments have remained tight-lipped about the UFO phenomena, they have their reasons. I understand that.  What I would like to see is governmental officials coming clean with the public about these UFO sightings and letting us know, once and for all, that we are being visiting by extraterrestrials. Confirmation, not disclosure.

    Shouldn’t you fellas be in church.

    Hey Dung have you ever heard the tale of nightmare alley at Dulce AZ. You might want to look into that, it would be proof. If you consider witness testimony proof, if not then ignore this comment like you usually do with people of an opposing viewpoint.

    If there ARE aliens I am going to open up an export company to sell cheap Chinese trinkets to them to take back home to their squidlings!

  • Dung Shooken

    “…it would be proof.”It WOULD be proof if it were real, which there is no good evidence that it is. It certainly wasn’t real to any of my ancestors or any of your ancestors, or the ancestors of anyone I’ve ever known or you’ve ever known. And it isn’t real for me or you. Unless you’ve been there and been experimented on? Have you? Have you or anyone you personally know been subjected to the evil machinations of an alien species? Or are you just into scary stories about reptilians?

    Just because some people think there’s a new world order doesn’t make it true. Hell, some people believe in Satan.

    Really? What does church have to do with anything? I’m a Christian who fully believes in the possibility of alien life. This is a case of someone drawing assumptions based on lack of knowledge.

    Furthermore, Jeni has a valid point. Can you actually guarantee as to how you would react? You’re absolutely positive that you wouldn’t be peeing your pants? What would happen is absolute chaos.

  • Scott_McMan

    Again with the jabs at “churchgoers”. Why don’t you come right out with it, instead of using innuendo and dry humor that you expect to whoosh over the heads of Christians?

  • Scott_McMan

    I disagree Red, I think there would be widespread chaos. It may subside eventually, but not before a great deal of damage is done.

    Look at it this way, if you woke up to the news that aliens were landing in cities all over the world, would you hop in your car and head to work or check to see if you had ammo? Panic would be rampant and that’s just the beginning.

  • keith

    Church ! What are you smoking fella. a little off topic don’t you think. i don’t believe in organized religion and i don’t believe what Stanton and his crony’s say .

  • RednGreen

    Hmm, I agree that if we got the news that aliens were landing, yes of course people would panic. But if the gov’t merely confirmed that we have indeed been visited by aliens, it wouldn’t be so bad. I guess I was considering a slightly different scenario.

  • SecretiveGuy4U

    It always works so why change.

  • SecretiveGuy4U

    Well Scott I have been in life threatening situations before in my life and I have remained calm and focused, so I have to assume that is how i would react in this hypothetical situation as well. Now as for the rest of humanity like you, Im sure you all would be engaging in mass hysteria and genocide. Maybe you should try to evolve like I did.
