Government Pulls Support for UFO Event
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve, Inskeep.
The U.S. military has had to withdraw its participation in a UFO festival. It's the Lights in the Night event in Roswell, New Mexico. Apache and Blackhawk helicopters were supposed to take part in a fake alien invasion. Or at least they say it's fake. In any case, the choppers are not available. The government says they're on standby to help fight the region's wildfires. But could it really be coincidence that the wildfires broke out just now?
