real danger to the U.S. and perhaps this whole planet
is the government has placed such a heavy blanket of secrecy
upon this issue. So much secrecy, those in government
who have knowledge showing UFOs are identifiable feel
the subject cannot be discussed by those in the know without
serious repercussions. Others are afraid their friends
and co-workers will think they are crazy if they even
so much as insinuate that UFOs are identifiable as manned
craft from outside the earth. This particularly applies
to newspaper editors and publishers, reporters and analysts.
Thus the U.S. is denying itself the chance to learn more
about UFOs or to encourage research despite the fact the
U. S. stands to gain from such discussions. . . .Not publicized
but true is that the Clinton administration, soon after
coming to office, had many briefings on the subject. Laurance
Rockefeller provided the information for the President
and Mrs. Clinton. Others provided documents and verbal
briefings to presidential advisors Jack Gibbons (science),
Bruce Lindsay (personal), Anthony Lake (national security)
and Vice President Albert Gore. About the same time a
three hour briefing was given by Dr. Steven Greer to the
sitting Director of the CIA, Admiral Woolsey. . . .After
the Roswell incident, the Air Force replied to reporters'
inquiries that this was all part of research using weather
balloons and other equipment. [Colonel] Corso and hundreds
of others who work or have worked in secret defense and
scientific agencies, are willing to swear under oath that
alien craft are repeatedly penetrating our airspace."
