From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Sat, 11 Feb 2012 09:53:01 -0500 Archived: Sat, 11 Feb 2012 09:53:01 -0500 Subject: Re-Writing The Rules In Ecuador Source: Billy Cox's Blog De Void http://tinyurl.com/7mq4rrb Friday, February 10, 2012 Rewriting The Rules In Ecuador by Billy Cox As if De Void needed more evidence of being a fraud in this 'business', I didn’t even know who Jaime Rodriguez was until tuning into a UFOTV documentary called UFOs in South America: Disclosure Has Begun. Now I gotta meet this guy. UFO glasnost has been sweeping South America for years now, and the piece skims some of those treetops. But the revelation here, and its primary focus, is the work of one man - Ecuadoran journo Rodriguez - who’s been pressing his government for UFO disclosure since 1983. Working for Ecuavisa television, Rodriguez managed in 2005 to wring a major concession from Ecuador’s mercurial now-ex president Lucio Gutierrez, a former army colonel who staged a brief coup d’etat in Quito in 2000. Rodriguez persuaded Guitierrez to actually live up to a campaign promise about UFO transparency (whoa Nellie!), and the result was the Committee for the Investigation of the UFO Phenomenon (CEIFO). Staffed with six civilians, including Rodriguez, CEIFO was charged with collecting enough “convincing” data to write a cogent appeal for the government to end its UFO information bottleneck. But promised funding never materialized. So Rodriguez and crew managed to scrape together $12k to pursue their documentary research over the next two years.
