To the List,

This announcement is grossly inaccurate!

Just go to the CNES/GEIPAN web site and you will find the correct
data: 28% of unexplained cases, not 50%.

Here is the repartition in four categories:

PAN A (perfectly identified): 9%
PAN B (probably idnetified): 33%
PAN C (insufficient data): 30%
PAN D (un identified): 28%

The web site is at http://www.cnes-geipan.fr

EBK has inteviewed me on that, on his program, quite recently.

It is so easy to check this data that I wonder if such an
announcement would not be deliberate, in order to cast doubt and
ridicule on the French files.

On the other hand, it is true that this percentage of unknowns
has been upgraded recently, after reviewing the files
completely. The previous estimation was 13 to 14%. I am
preparing an article on the relase of the French files, and on
the publication of an important collective book under the
direction of Yves Sillard, the President of the steering
committee of GEIPAN, entitled "Ph=E9nom=E8nes a=E9rospatiaux non
identifi=E9s". I will talk about that in the speech I intend to
give this coming week-end at San Marino, in Italy. After that, I
will propose it to those who may want to publish it.
