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.
