Whole Muslim middle East and bit of catholic Europe would implode and commit mass harakiri.
Mass harakiri? No way. It would probably trigger them to wage a holy war against UFO/ET believers.

just can't let this groundbreaking and potentially paradigm-shifting moment in history go without a bit of casual islamaphobia, can we?

George Knapp just came out with more information and an interview with Harry Reid this evening:
"Even though this was a secure program,we wanted to make sure people couldn't complain about it that it was some sweetheart deal. No, it was put out to bid," Reid says.
The contract was posted for months. The winning bid came from Las Vegas space entrepreneur Robert Bigelow
At its peak, the study had 46 scientists working at the Nevada facility, writing reports and analyzing data that came in from the military. Rapid response teams were dispatched to the scene of UFO events. Over five years, the project cost a total of 22 million. it wasn't a money maker for Bigelow.
"I'm sure the reason it helped is that he gave the best cost. He was willing to build the infrastructure and build everything on his own because he liked the topic," Reid says.
....Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes.....

Speaking of John Alexander, I was just thinking how interesting it is that his book claiming that there was no such UFO program in the US government - and that if there were he would have found it - came out in 2011, when these studies are officially confirmed to have been taking place.
Seems he may have overlooked something. I'll be interested to hear his comments on this.

That last part is of particular interest to me. I don't understand why there would be religious concerns over this.
As crazy as it sounds, some US 'officials' are reportedly wedded to the notion of UFOs as demons and Armageddon as a real thing. Even Hynek eventually came to think of UFO phenomena in terms that came close to 'demons.' He called them metaterrestrials.
It's more evidence of the reflective nature of these things and our tendency to project. People who believe in demons see demons. Aircraft engineers see airframe technology. Sociologists see cultural artifacts. The people who think everyone else is stupid see them as evidence that everyone else is stupid.

From the interview Knapp did with Fmr Senator Reid, Bigelow won the contract for this project because he was willing to put three times as much of his own money into building the infrastructure and salaries, etc. By that math, the estimated actual cost was more like $88-100 million. Or more. Bigelow threw massive resources into it because "he liked the topic."
It was interesting that Reid said they put the project up for bidding - it wasn't just handed to Bigelow. I wonder how they put a top secret project up for that?? Anyway...
