No Way! CIA says at least HALF of all UFO sightings in 50’s & 60’s were spy planes, NOT aliens

The CIA announced on Monday that they are responsible for at least half of the UFO sightings reported in the 1950’s and 60’s.

‘#1 most read on our #Bestof2014 list: Reports of unusual activity in the skies in the ’50s? It was us,’ the government agency tweeted yesterday.

Over the last few days, the CIA has been tweeting out links to its top ten most-read ‘Best of 2014’ documents.

The CIA explained that the UFO sightings of the past were were directly correlated to them testing U-2 spy planes at altitudes of over 60,000 feet, once thought an impossible height to fly.

    And the 70’s and the 80’s…
    What am I, some kind of omniscient being?
    I have been saying this since 1999.

    Not everything we fly looks like a plane.

    Do you need me to tell you what those big black triangles the size of football fields silently moving all over the Mojave desert are too?

    Mickey Katz not only spotted a flying saucer but encountered a space alien.

    The high altitude flying characteristics of the U2 and ’57 came awfully close to the normal definition of “impossible to fly” aircraft.
