Don & List,

Surely the only folk qualified to judge craft and their flight
characteristics are pilots? And that includes astronauts. But
they're specifically barred from speaking, by military law and
maybe now even by civil 'law' or 'guidelines' (corporate
censorship).

Astronomers, meteorologists (weather people), other scientists
and folk in 'administration' have no experience or knowledge of
flying and so should be ignored. But they're the only ones asked
or allowed to speak, because their careers are controlled by
gov't.

Here's some references which I think are still valid and
checkable -

www.virtuallystrange.net/ufo/updates/2006/sep/m26-001.shtml

and

http://tinyurl.com/fjx9c Page 958 onwards

"Aug 1952 - referring to the very last time reports were
obtained from professional astronomers - but only by fellow
astronomer J Allen Hynek presenting himself as willing to "chat
- off the record". Their apparently new, and clearly increasing
reluctance to talk was presumably due to fear of official
punishment."

"August 1953 US Air Force Regulation (200-2) criminalized AF
personnel speaking to public or Press about 'sightings'. Base
commanders were authorized to publicize 'sightings' only if they
could be firmly identified as 'familiar or known objects'. I.e -
only 'debunking' reports allowed. Quote: 'UFOs:'The Government
Files' - Peter Brookesmith, Brown Books, London, 1996 (p 38)."

"Former Director of Central Intelligence, Vice Admiral R.H.
Hillenkoetter: "It is time for the truth to be brought out in
open Congressional hearings. Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air
Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through
official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are lead to believe
the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the
Air Force has silenced its personnel." Quote - The New York
Times, Sunday, February 28, 1960: 'Air Force Order on Saucers
Cited' p. L30."

All this should tell us something about the motives of the
corporate media and those who've made the laws: they don't want
the truth or even informed comment.


Cheers
