Personally I think it would be horribly negligant on the part of the government to come out and reveal somthing of that magnitude all at once. A
simple referance to Orsen Well's is all that is needed. Disclosure would have to come in slow incremants, first admitting the possiblity, then a
little evidence, and over the course of a few years full disclosure would become evident as soon as people have had time to abosrb what they've been
told. Remember, many of us may do nothing more than applaude the government for their honesty, but most of America has yet to accept the fact that
will die one day.
As to disclosure happening in the near future I'd like to point to the recent articles about respected scientists basically saying visitation is a
distinct possibilty. Perhaps this is disclosure happening as we speak, remember, much like the networks of terror cells, the government will most
likely slip it in slowly enough to make most people think it's a new thing. I think if these recent articles are evidence of future disclosure we
will begin to see more media coverage in favor of the "UFO Phenomena". Shows on the Discovery channel that are slightly slanted towards the
believers, perhaps later a few reports on a respected news channel treating it less like an impossibility. Disclosure, if it comes, will come "like
a thief in the night" to put it biblically, keep your eyes and ears open and your mind impartial.
As to sending letters to people of governmental positions, I think it's at best a fruitless effort. Rather, a more effective means would be sending
the same letters, in larger amounts, to a target media source. A source with high ratings. Remember, politicians these days don't care much about
losing a few votes, but a television network will do anything for a larger share of the market. I know many people's opinions of Fox News but it is
currently the highest rated news network in the US. Perhaps you'd have better luck employing them to put pressure on the government. Send your
letters to Fox News and you might convince them that at the very least they could have a massive influx of a previously unreachable demographic. On
the contrary Fox News may be the wrong choice but I believe the theory is a sound one. Convince the media that you will buy their product (watching a
tv show is buying the product, since in turn they sell you to their advertisers) if they begin to take this seriously and you may just influence them
to do some research. At the very least they will have more coverage on UFO related events which will ease the skeptical fervour of many unbelievers.
I do believe, however, that this should be organised and standarized and targeted at one media source such as Fox news or CNN. The letters should be
eloquent and well thought out, perhaps all copies of the same letter. The letter should also sound as impartial as possible so as not to discredit
ourselves as "crackpots" and "whack jobs". Remember, we're not trying to convince the believers. I also think that sending the letters one at a
time over an extended period of time will be more effective than one petition, copius amounts of letters pouring into the mailroom demanding media
coverage of UFOs and the like will make a larger impression and, in and of itself, be worthy of mention on the air. This in turn could cause
desperate competitors to take the hint and begin coverage.
