Dick, et al,

I don't subscribe to CNN, and in fact, my television is so olde
that it isn't even compatible with cable TV, so I didn't see the
fiasco with Larry King. However, I have read the transcript,
compliments of this List, so I believe I have a fairly clear
picture of what took place there. It appears to have been a
'rerun' of the LK 'interview in the desert', which occurred on
September 30, 1994, or perhaps the day after.

What interests me more than the original program is the
subsequent debate the program stimulated, both on this List, and
elsewhere. The one thing I observe is that everyone who has
addressed the question of a presumed cover-up has done so,
predicating his/her views on the notion that the apparent
presence of UFOs on our planet is 'hermetically' separated from
the U. S. government, its policies, and actions. This assumption
may be flawed...

The question that concerns me most is whether the (presumed)
occupants of the UFOs might have succeeded, over the last 60
years, or so, in insinuating themselves into our culture, to the
extent that they can manipulate events on a large scale.
Moreover, they are able to do so in a fashion that leaves the
perpetrators not only undetected, but even unsuspected.

Given the findings of abduction researchers, I see nothing that
militates against this possibility. Alien technology appears to
be so far advanced beyond anything humans have yet invented, it
may occur right under our noses and we don't recognize it for
what it is.

If an alien civilization is technologically advanced enough to
be able to travel to Earth from whatever they call home, it
seems unlikely to me that our planet would be the first alien
culture they would have encountered along the way. Hence, they
may have visited enough civilizations at our level of
development that the whole process of 'introduction' might be
'old hat' to them by now. Certainly, they would have recognized
the same principles of 'battle' that were recognized by Sun Tzu,
and others, over the course of human history, namely, that the
best form of 'attack' is the one that your adversary is least
apt to anticipate, or least able to detect. I can't imagine that
this simple principle would have been lost on an intelligent,
technology-based civilization.

If the scenario I outline above has merit, it points out to us
all, I suspect, how far we have to go to educate the public
about the UFO/alien phenomenon, and how important our work may
be. If we are unable to prove, to everyone's satisfaction, that
UFO's are a real phenomenon, how are we _ever_ going to be able
to convince our fellow citizens that some of the crazy events we
see taking place on this planet may be being instigated by
aliens, or somehow under their influence?! This is Spielberg

My observation also underscores the possibility that those of us
in ufology may err in expecting that the U. S. government, or
any other social institution, will ever act so as to reveal the
truth about the UFO phenomenon. They may be under quiet
influence by the very presence we are attempting to reveal, and
even those humans being influenced may not be aware of it!

If there is merit to any of my observations above, then we may
have big trouble on our hands...
