Brazil On The Brink?
by Billy Cox

Imagine 10 Pentagon officials from every branch of the military,
including the Secretary of Defense, agreeing to pow-wow for 75
minutes with civilian UFO researchers. Imagine, at the end of
that meeting, in an ostensible show of good faith - or maybe it
was just window dressing, who knows - the brass actually
concedes the civilians may be on to something. And it agrees to
give them access to some of the most contentious UFO records on
file. Well, change the venue from the U.S. to Brazil, and that's
exactly what happened in Brasilia on April 18, according to A.J.

As editor of Brazilian UFO Magazine, Gevaerd has been covering
The Great Taboo forever in South America's biggest country, and
he has sources out the wazoo. He also works amid a radically
different cultural climate; Brazil's Ministry of Defense is far
less reluctant to speak on the record about UFOs than its
American counterparts. In fact, Gevaerd writes, the
unprecedented 4/18 meeting was the MoD's direct response to a
letter emerging from the 4th World UFO Forum in Brasilia last
December, which called for more data-sharing with civilians. The
ufologists, or the Brazilian Commmittee of UFO Researchers
(CBU), also pressed for joint civilian-military study of The
Great Taboo. Some 600 people attended that conference, which
featured 30 speakers from a dozen countries.

Gevaerd is joining Steve Bassett's Citizen Hearing on
Disclosure, which kicked off today at the National Press Club in
Washington. De Void, who actually works with a mainstream
corporate newspaper, will monitor press coverage from afar.
Which is too bad, because Gevaerd is one guy I'd like to meet.
Lots of questions on this end, not the least of which concern
the credentials, or credibility, of the half dozen CBU
transparency advocates with whom the MoD agreed to meet. How, De
Void wonders, did the MoD attain its comfort level with these
folks? And, by extension, De Void wonders, who in this minefield
would our own Pentagon feel confident enough to join such a
discussion in the U.S.?
