I am constantly amazed how much conjecture and outright fantasy
Dolan is able to inject into the idea that somehow, there will
be a mass event that will "force" some form of disclosure from
the President of the United States regarding the UFO enigma. It
assumes that the president actually has access to such
information (which I think it's safe to assume, he doesn't), or
that there would be some type of motivation from the side of
"the Others" that would have them undertake direct, mass
communication (there is precious little in the credible
contemporary history of the interaction between humanity and
UFOs to suggest such a potential, it looks like contact has
likely occurred on a one-to-one basis, which makes much more
sense on multiple levels).

For someone who has built a reputation based largely on his
supposed chops as a historian, Dolan increasingly comes across
as a sci-fi novelist, and a whole lot less like an academic
researcher.
