Subject: Regarding The Citizen Hearing On Disclosure


All,

As I told a friend, when he asked me to assess the Citizen
Hearing before it happened, "Nothing is black or white. Some
good will come from it, however, I suspect that the negatives
will outweigh the positives and I am concerned that the ex-USAF
missileers who've decided to participate will end up being
unfairly associated with the less-than-credible witnesses."

Well, given that former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel took the Air
Force veterans seriously and went so far as to say that their
statements were the "smoking gun" that confirmed that there
was/is a government cover-up on UFOs, I would say that I was
correct about the good part.

Also, serious researchers were in evidence, including Peter
Davenport and Kevin Randle, to name two. And credible
whistleblowers, such as retired FAA administrator John Callahan.

But as I watched the hearings, all five days, it became clear
that I was also correct about the bad part. Bassett has never
vetted his witnesses, refuses to do so, probably doesn't even
know how, and it frequently showed. So, it's not surprising that
there was more than a little BS, wishful thinking, and unwitting
participation in hoaxes and disinformation ops.

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Ufology.

However, given how rare it is for a high-level government type
to say something affirming about UFOs and the cover-up of same -
even though Sen. Gravel left Washington in 1981 - I decided to
issue the following press release:

http://online.wsj.com/article/PR-CO-20130507-908600.html

It has already received some useful attention. The debunkers
will say that I am posting it just to sell books. That's what
they always fall back on, since the information I have collected
over the years from military veterans is credible, documented,
and hard to refute.
