Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, also the first director of the CIA when it was established, stated in a 1960 letter to congress that was later quoted in The New York Times that:
'It is time for the truth to be brought out in open Congressional hearings. Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.'
That's only one of 10 or 20 things in the UFO department you really need to know in order to know. It is almost 50 years later and one of the most important topics confronting humankind is, in America at least, still propped up by lies and deceit. The rest of the world seems to be lightening up on the bullshit though.
In France the phenomenon is studied by the government and they opened up most of their files to public scrutiny a couple of years ago. (One assumes the secret trade agreement to export Roquefort to Epsilon Eridani is still under wraps.) Other governments are starting to open up too. The days are numbered for those in charge of the bullshit machine.
They're the definition of queer.
Indeed you should get used to it.
