British Top Guns Ordered to Shoot UFOs

Target...The Sun's mock-up of how an RAF pilot would attack an alien spaceship under directive.
RAF pilots have tried to BLAST UFOs out of the sky under a top secret Government directive, it was claimed last night.

Nick Pope - who worked on the Ministry of Defence's UFO desk for three years - revealed the rules of engagement for the first time.

He claimed RAF pilots had fired at UFOs on several occasions - but failed to bring them down.

He added: "We know of cases where the order has been given to shoot down - with little effect to the UFO."

Mr Pope said the rules of engagement were drawn up after dozens of close encounters with suspect craft in British airspace.

RAF attacks on UFOs were "not automatic but happen when something in our airspace is deemed to be a threat".

UFO files to be released under Obama Open Government Memoranda

On his first full day as President, Barack Obama issued two Executive Orders and three Presidential Memorandum that will start an era of transparent and Open Government. The White House Office of the Press Secretary released a statement outlining the sweeping changes to be implemented by the Obama administration. In his Presidential Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government, and the Presidential Memorandum on the Freedom of Information Act, President Obama instructed
... all members of his administration to operate under principles of openness, transparency and of engaging citizens with their government. To implement these principles and make them concrete, the Memorandum on Transparency instructs three senior officials to produce an Open Government Directive within 120 days directing specific actions to implement the principles in the Memorandum. And the Memorandum on FOIA instructs the Attorney General to in that same time period issue new guidelines to the government implementing those same principles of openness and transparency in the FOIA context.

Hillary Clinton arrives at State Department Jan. 22, 2009.
Newly confirmed Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has long had an interest in UFOs and the existence of extraterrestrial life. She was given an informal briefing in August 1995 by billionaire philanthropist Laurence Rockefeller, on the best available UFO evidence. An August 4, 1995, memo by President Clinton's Science Advisor, Dr Jack Gibbons, confirmed that the Clintons would be vacationing with Rockefeller at his Teton Ranch in Wyoming that summer, and they would discuss UFOs:
You will probably see Mr Rockefeller on your vacation in the Tetons. He will want to talk with you about his interest in extrasensory perception, paranormal phenomenon, and UFOs.

England: Growling Noise Heard At Ware 'Devil Tower' By Fleeing Pensioners

Sinister growling has once again been heard at an abandoned church tower in Thundridge, near Ware, which has legends of ghostly goings on and devil worship.

A week after another report of the unexplained sound, Hoddesdon pensioners Ann and Leonard Crump heard the "menacing" noise, which they claim was a warning to stay away from the site, off Cold Christmas Lane.

Legend has it the circa 1100 tower's unorthodox alignment caused tragedy and bad luck for the village in days gone by.

Today (Thursday) Most Haunted fan Ann, 63, of Crossfield Road, told the Herald: "We went along there yesterday my husband and myself, I'm in my 60s and he's in his 70s. I do believe in things but I put it in my mind to be sceptical.
