Hello Nick,

At the link above, you are quoted as saying:

"The second thing that's happening is that the MoD has decided
to release its entire archive of UFO files, not least because of
the increasing burden of responding to FOI requests (the MoD get
more FOI requests in relation to UFOs than on any other subject,
including the war in Iraq). This is a massive job and may take
months, if not years, as personal details of witnesses have to
be removed, along with any information that would genuinely
compromise national security - e.g. information on the
capability of military radar systems."

Given that this interview is dated May 27, 2007, what led you to
believe that the decision to release the DAS files had already
been taken?

I ask this because in an email from DAS to me dated 26th June
2007, I was informed in relation to the release of the DAS

"...To date no decision on the matter has been made. When a
decision is made regarding their status (i.e. whether to release
them or not), I will inform you."

Do you have any source for your differing information?
