could this be why
Kerrang! Radio reported at its website:
“Producer Alex contacted NASA to confirm Dr. Mitchell's story, this was their reply:
NASA does not track UFOs.
NASA is not involved in any sort of cover-up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe.
Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinion on this issue.
Thanks for the opportunity to comment.’”
although I have seen this phrase banded about also:
A rep for NASA told CNN: "NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover-up about alien life on this planet or anywhere else - period."
NASA was even lying about that because they have indeed tacked UFOs in the past and gotten plenty of reports about them, even though they do not like to admit anything to the public at all.
