Letters To The Editor

Regarding 'Green Men Myth'
(Cornwallis column, Evening Mail, August 7),
the following should be noted.

The acronym UFO stands for unidentified flying object =97 _not_
"alien spaceship" =97 and while the vast majority (about 95 per
cent) of UFO reports are explainable, the rest are not, a fact
conceded by defence ministries throughout the world.

Contrary to the statement that "there is not a scrap, not a
shred of evidence for the existence of UFOs", well over 4,000
military and civilian pilots (as well as numerous naval
officers, astronauts etc) have reported encounters with unknown
flying craft =97 frequently confirmed by radar =97 and thousands go
unreported owing to military or other professional security

In addition, thousands of previously classified intelligence
papers (many Top Secret) prove how seriously the subject is
taken by officialdom.

As former CIA director Admiral Hillenkoetter stated in 1960:
"Behind the scenes, high-ranking air force officers are soberly
concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and
ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying
objects are nonsense."

Regarding film/video footage, most can be explained in terms of
hoaxes or misidentifications, but certainly not all. As for
hardware, plenty exists =97 including several vehicles recovered
prior to the 1947 Roswell incident =97 though such hardware
remains highly classified to this day.

"The classification was, from the outset, above Top Secret, so
the vast majority of US officials and politicians =97 let alone a
mere allied minister of defence =97 were never in the loop,"
declared former Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer two years

As to "why do they not reveal themselves?", thousands of
witnesses throughout the world =97 including high-ranking military
personnel =97 have reported encounters with extraterrestrial

Again, probably the majority can be explained, but not all.

Readers may be interested to know that my latest book, Need to
Know: UFOs, the Military and Intelligence (published in July by
Pan Macmillan) reveals all this information in depth.
