Well, this is exactly the kind of "information" one can find in

I have studied, privately, the UFO phenomenon since more than 25
years and I have published my first UFO book reviews in
non-ufological magazines in 1973. I published my first own UFO
book in 1993, which has nothing to do with Roswell but which was
about "ancient UFOs", one of my main interests in ufology. Four
other books have followed and the next one will be published
before summer.

We are waiting for the first book of our 30 years investigator
who seems to have so many things to tell about "true ufology".

The problem with the short 1995 report is that there is almost
nothing interesting in it. It's only a brief history of
"official UFO research" in USA and France concluded by the idea
that military and intelligence agencies can use the UFO interest
of citizens to hide secret operations.

It was written by a young serviceman (I have his name) and was
never a secret document but just another report among tons of
other reports produced by the military. It reflects more the
views of the serviceman than anything else. A short extract was
used in the first Special UFO issue of VSD in 1998 and the
serviceman was very upset to have not been cited as the author !
Quite strange, isn't it for an "official and important" report ?

And if it was "countersigned" it's only because there is almost
nothing in it, just the kind of infos about UFOs that you can
find here and there in your favorite sunday newspaper or TV
guide before the launching of the new season of X Files.

The COMETA Report (even if not a perfect work) is really the big
thing, privately published or not.
