I had the chance to meet Colonel Sanchez in 2007 at the Curitiba conference in Brazil, where I was invited thanks to my friend AJ Gevaerd. I also met there with General Bermudez from Chile, together with Dr Richard Haines, Nick Pope, and other people from Brazil, Chile and Peru. All good people and researchers. I say that especially for Kathy Kasten and the like who seem to still have great difficulties in acknowledging good UFO research on credible cases. Cheers Gildas Bourdais Listen to 'Strange Days...
