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.
