In cases like this, you have to wonder whether the Aussie government lost their X-files on purpose…
After a 2 month search for UFO records due to a Freedom Of Information request by the Sydey Morning Herald, the Australia’s Department of Defence had been ‘unable to locate the files’.
The files detail all reported sightings of UFO’s from across Australia.
“The files could not be located and Headquarters Air Command formally advised that this file is deemed lost,” the department’s FOI assistant director, Natalie Carpenter, told the paper.
Apparently the could only find a single file called “Report on UFOs/Strange Occurrences and Phenomena in Woomera,” a military weapons testing range in the centre of Australia’s vast outback.
When the news came out, conspiracy theories quickly began doing the rounds on the net.
Most bloggers and commentators pointed out that it was strange that they have ALL vanished without explanation. They went on to ask what the government was hiding.
Governments from around the world have recently been releasing their old UFO files. The recent release of files in the UK also prompted conspiracy theories.
In this case files from the ‘Rendlesham Forest Incident’ had also mysteriously disappeared with explanation. Many people say that this incodent is as big as the US ‘Roswell Incident’.
The Australian government has not yet responded for requests for comment on this case.
