From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Thu, 12 Jul 2012 11:56:42 -0400 Archived: Thu, 12 Jul 2012 11:56:42 -0400 Subject: MoD Files Make UFOs History Source: David Clarke's Folklore & Journalism http://drdavidclarke.co.uk/2012/07/11/mod-files-make-ufos-history/ July 11, 2012 MoD Files Make UFOs History David Clarke The ninth collection of UFO files, released by the UK government on 12 July, takes the chronology full circle back to the MoD’s decision to ‘make UFOs history’. A guide to the highlights of the 25 files can be found on the The National Archives UFO page here and a more detailed analysis can be found on my UFO files #9 page here. I’ve blogged about the files as a guest on the archives blogpage here. The documents reveal how influential my Freedom of Information campaign actually was in the decision to end decades of official secrecy by opening the files to the public. Within the 6,700 pages is a UFO briefing prepared for former Prime Minister Tony Blair by the Ministry of Defence in 1998. New Labour’s manifesto included a commitment to a Freedom of Information bill and UFOlogist Nick Redfern took the initiative in a letter to No.10 that urged Mr Blair to ‘consider making available for public scrutiny all of the many and varied UFO reports’ collected by the government since the end of the Second World War [DEFE 24/1987/1] [More at site... thanks to Dave Haith for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
