Lots of Acronyms Tracking UFOs

UFO Crash in Somalia
By Billy Cox
The Herald tribune

Billy COx Last month, the Vietnam New Agency announced that an explosion above Phu Quoc Island had littered the coastline with metallic debris. Residents showed off recovered scraps for the cameras, but no nation or corporation stepped forward to demand it back. No media followups on the analysis.

Last October, a Romanian Mig 21 allegedly got dinged and battered by several UFOs, but the local TV report didn’t hit the West until a few weeks ago. Too bad Romanians don’t speak English.

The point is, there’s a lot of stuff falling from the sky these days, but it usually passes with little more than a blurb and a shrug. Last year, however, a newsflash out of Somalia prompted Frank Warren to do a double take.

According to Shabelle Radio, something crashed outside a town called Buulo Burde in March 2007, and allegedly killed a grazing camel upon impact. The report stated, somewhat awkwardly, that the thing glittered during the day and “in the nighttime it turns lights and speaks a strange language which can’t be understood by the villagers.”

Warren, who runs a UFO Web site in Sacramento [Knowledge is Power], posted the news immediately. What intrigued him most were the government Internet Service Providers tuning into the story: U.S. Central Command, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, NASA/Cleveland, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“They all stacked up on top of each other within minutes, and I can guarantee you that was no accident,” says Warren. “It may have been something as simple as somebody making a call to a friend and saying, ‘Hey, check this out.’ But who knows.”

Warren says the Somalian mystery crackled along the Internet for about 72 hours. “Then it went black. There was no more news. I tried to track it through local forums asking, ‘Have you heard any more?’ and they said no. I even e-mailed one of the local papers and never heard back.”

Lacking additional data, Warren suspects what slammed into east Africa was a spy satellite, and that it was recovered by rapid-response teams. He hasn’t seen such a concentrated crush of government traffic before or sense. But authority types people are clearly trolling his page for the latest developments on the UFO frontier.
