Dear Listers This is a must see, as the official is really a great speaker and has an enormous knowledge of the UFO Phenomena. I have been a friend of General Ricardo Bermudez for over a decade and can assure that he is a very serious man who is also very serious and open towards the UFO subject. Very few people in the UFO community in States or Europe realize that Chile has an _official_ committee for UFO investigations since 1997, operating under the National Aviation Department. It is the Centro de Estudios de Fen=F3menos A=E9reos An=F3malos (CEFAA). And not only that, but Uruguay has a similar committee for UFO investigations since 1979, it is, the committee was formed only 3 years after the French initiatives. It is called Comisi=F3n Receptadora y Investigadora de Denuncias de Objectos Voladores No Identificados (Cridovni). Both entities are open and composed by both civilian UFO researchers and military personal, without any skeptical position, but rather critical. I have interviewed for over 4 hours the commander of the Uruguayan committee, Coronel Ariel Sanchez, in November 2010, and will interview Bermudez in Santiago next March. A. J.
