Abducting America's Records

The truth is out there, and it is now readily accessible online
for all UFO enthusiasts to enjoy.

Last Thursday, a French space agency began publishing decades'
worth of local police reports, photos and videos of documented
extraterrestrial evidence. Now it is the United States' turn to
follow suit and release our nation's 'X-Files' into the public

The site


has made global headlines for its success. In fact, its
popularity has overwhelmed servers, sometimes crashing the site
and making it virtually impossible to view.

What makes the Web site most interesting, however, is how only 9
percent of the 1,600 documented reports have any official
explanation or conclusion behind the phenomena. Almost one-
fourth of those listed have a "D" classification, which means
"despite good or very good data and credible witnesses, we are
confronted with something we cannot explain," said Jacques
Patenet, the engineer in charge of the French "study of
nonidentified aerospatial phenomena."

Unfortunately in the U.S., our government holds a more
conservative stance on releasing similar information. This
sentiment is felt across the country; a 2002 Sci-Fi Channel poll
revealed that 72 percent of the American public does not feel
its government reveals everything it knows about UFO activity.

France set precedence by becoming the first nation to create a
central location for such material. By doing so, the National
Centre for Space Studies - the French equivalent of NASA - took
a positive step forward in proving to its nation's citizens that
sensitive information doesn't necessarily remain classified.

Before and after the Roswell, N.M., incident, America has had
its fill of reported UFO sightings that hail in comparison to
the few French encounters of the third kind. How intriguing it
would be if the U.S. would come out with a similar Web site,
which trumps that of the French and appeals to a more broad

At the very least, NASA surely has servers capable of handling
the excessive traffic that would come with hosting such a page.
