Dear James, Dick, Listers:

After years of studying camouflage, concealment and deception, I
found the art of deception to be the very foundation upon which
these and many other strategies are built. With two degrees in
psychology, the use of perception manipulation, propaganda,
misinformation and disinformation in the UFO community often
stands out like a sore thumb.

Since many governments and militaries regularly employ the art
of deception in their activities, it would be insane to assume
information released through pressure from interest groups,
FOIA's or legislations contain all the truth or any truth at
all. If a government and/or military does not want the public to
know something, they don't share it. Period. So when they do
share information otherwise considered "classified", one must
always ask, "Why?"

Why would any government or military agency share information
they don't want the public to know? This is when you must use
restraint and caution rather than zeal and celebration for your
beliefs can and will be used against you. Those who believe and
have a vested interest in the existence of UFOs as ET craft are
most vulnerable to misinformation and disinformation because
they can be told exactly what they want to hear and will quickly
and efficiently spread the information, true or false, to the
UFO community. By keeping the focus on 'secret' and
'classified', the public is led to assume it _must_ be the
truth. By releasing the information through high ranking
military personnel and/or government agencies, the public will
assume it is official and therefore true.

Also, why release information through UFO investigators instead
of going directly to the public and making the announcements
themselves? On the surface, this may make sense but once you
begin to analyze these actions, they don't quite add up. Is it
because releasing information to UFO agencies and/or
representatives helps maintain the giggle factor and reduces the
credibility of the information? Or is it yet another way to
spread more propaganda about UFOs? Are they releasing the
information because it's the truth or because they want people
to _think_ it's the truth?

There are no "simple" truths when it comes to UFOs. Taking
anything seen or heard at face value is foolhardy. As much as we
may like to keep UFOs and information releases simple and
logical, it never had been nor will be so easy. Accepting the
complexities of our militaries, governments and UFOs is the
first step out of ignorance.

A. Hebert

"All warfare is based on deception. Therefore, when capable,
feign incapacity; when active, inactivity... Offer the enemy
bait to lure him; feign disorder and strike him... Pretend
inferiority and encourage his arrogance." --Sun Tzu
