What Norwegians were seeing were test flights of top secret U2 spy planes

You mean it was the most likely explanation and not the least?  The hell you say.

That's just what they want us to think.

The only shocking part of the story is that Subby wasn't paraphrasing. That's a direct quote.

That may explain the UFOs but what about the livestock deaths in Norway?

Well, duh. In the early '60s people biatched about the repeated sonic booms from the SR-71. PR folks went to the area and told them it was "the sound of freedom". Ben Rich wrote that they ate that shiat up after that.

UFOs were an easy excuse for all the wacky stuff the US did during the Cold War. Of course people being people this morphed into hilarious David Icke territory. And Budd Hopkins territory. If you want a fun read, just Google "Dulche Base" and have some fun.

The CIA delivered atmospheric saucer technology to pro-American ETs in an effort to turn the tide in the Martian-Venusian conflict of '49. All materiel was stamped with European markings and routed through Lagrange trade stations located in the Jovian system.

I think most people would have said it was a hell of a lot more likely than secret CIA spy planes. The only way that doesn't sound crazy is by comparison with aliens.

I'm being told that if you feel the mammalian U2 spy plane isn't adequate explanation, you can complain formally to our operation at the nearest office of "your" government.

Hello. I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is: No.

And so concludes our tale. I'm Leonard Nimoy. Good night, and keep watching the skis.

IMDB has it as 'Project UFO' . It was a Jack Webb production. Of course, the government was always clean in it...just like the cops were always clean in Dragnet.

Yeah, it's kind of hard to land here without going trough our airspace. To be fair, they did try that once, but it didn't really work..

They experimented with regularly-scheduled sonic booms over OKC. The whole city's schedule quickly became centered around them. **BOOM** Breaktime **BOOM** Lunchtime **BOOM** Time to go home.

The U-2 overflights were part of a devious plan hatched by the CIA.  The US had worked out an alternate option to all out nuclear attack against the Soviet Union.  The devious plot involved attacking all lutefisk production facilities with Hiroshima-type ground burst bombs which, based upon expert calculations done by nuclear physicists in concert with meteorologists expert in prevailing winds, deposit radiated lutefisk waste over the whole of the western USSR.  The US would, of course, be able to deny any involvement in the plot because the bombs would be constructed out of materials smuggled out of the USSR.  The plan failed because a young CIA analyst, named Jack Ryan, happened upon evidence of the plan and discovered the involvement of German limburger cheese magnate, Klaus von Smegmus, who provided secret funding for the operation in hopes that collapse of the lutefisk industry would provide benefits to the limburger industry on the international revolting food market.
