Yes! Thank you for stating the matter precisely. The reality is
ufologists (note: not ufology crowd) succeeded in establishing
a principal hypothesis as fact - the presence of non-human
intelligence engaging the planet. It was the finest example of
citizen/science in history and done at great cost and personal
sacrifice. However, with their own government in direct
opposition to this result, they had to prove it over and over
again. The state's opposition was not based on science. It
was a matter of government policy. So the resolution of the
issue must be political.

Those ufologists who believe the ETH has not been established
have every right to feel that way.  In either case, to the best of
my knowledge, I and my colleagues have great respect for the
collective accomplishments of ufologists and ufology over the
past sixty years.

That such respect is often not reciprocated, while unfortunate,
is of little consequence to the larger outcome.

One more point. For most of his life, perhaps the finest
ufologist of his or any other time, James McDonald, could not
bring himself to believe his government had been lying to
him and his fellow citizens regarding the UFO issue. Near the
end of his life he finally realized the truth of that, likely one of
three reasons why he committed suicide (the other two being
the humiliation he experienced at the SST congressional
hearing and the estrangement from his wife.)

The UFO/ET truth is not a science matter, it is an exopolitical
matter - the politics of the manipulation of and interference
with science by the state .
