UFOs not so much but attack fairies and trolls-oh well there is much folklore and writing about the same in ancient Europe. David Clarke has a doctorate in Folklore and would likely prefer that UFOs somehow be lumped in with the former, but the fact is UFO reports are coming in from people who are not only "the common folk" but people from all walks of life, industries and sciences. Dr. Clarke and his supporters really do have to watch themselves if they don't want to go down in history - coined by Nick Pope - as the MoD's "useful idiots". Signing off on the drivel - as written usually by someone with any interest in the subject (dollars to do-nuts that these people are rotated on a regular basis to avoid them ingesting a load of information that they themselves would find hard to discard) and which comprises much of the released documentation - though there is good stuff in there - belies what concerns the military must have when they can't guarantee a protected airspace; a problem even more galling for the United States. On and on it goes. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
