Americans have long help a fascination with unidentified flying objects, and whatever version of the little green men they think might be piloting them.
The obsession truly began after World War II, when American pilots returning from war spoke of so-called “foo fighters” that would follow them on bombing runs over Europe.

That particular instance kicked off a belief that the government was lying to the American people when they dismissed the phenomenon as weather balloons, swamp gas, or some other mundane thing.
This opinion has persisted throughout the decades, and a recent Director of National Intelligence has confirmed that yes, there are some things about UFO’s that the government hasn’t yet told us.
