The explanation may be other than mere incompetence. Emphasizing
the fear factor is something I expect now from National
Geographic, after seeing their documentary on the technologies
and strategies available to counter an alien invasion.

I discussed in an earlier post how Nick Pope's warning of an
alien invasion at the London Olympics follows that same meme
quite nicely.


There seems to be a movement afoot to scare as many people as
possible (e.g., by "ridiculous thrashing around in the dark") in
preparation for some event related to UFOs, perhaps to do with
the Olympics.

Who stands to gain? I think the rule is to follow the money.
