During my time on the UFO project I sent any UFO photos and videos I acquired (wherever they were taken) to DIS staffs and to JARIC. The results of the consequent imagery anlaysis would feed into the wider investigation. None of this would be shared with witnesses, who'd just be sent a standard response based around our "no defencence significance" soundbite. An indication of how this worked in practice can be found here: http://www.nickpope.net/calvine-ufo-photo.htm Best wishes, Nick Pope http://www.nickpope.net Listen to 'Strange Days...
