In fact, DINEA, Peru's Office of Aerospace Interests, actually invited the press to attend the formal announcement last Friday in Lima. Imagine the feeding frenzy in the U.S. under parallel circumstances: "Jobless Claims Rise While Gov't Chases Flying Saucers", "Congressional Outrage: 'No Greenbacks for Little Green Men!'"
