I wrote my congressman about UFOs and ETs. I never thought I'd receive a response, but I did! It just shows you that it does help when we all
become more pro-active and write our representatives.
He's like all the other congressman who represent us... they're all ill-informed on the UFO subject and have taken the 1969 Condon report as fact.
They think UFOs are pointless. I emailed him back and demanded he fight for congressional hearings on UFOs since it's been so long without any.
Here's his entire response word for word:
September 16, 2005
Thank you for taking the time to contact me about the possibility of alien life on other planets and Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO). I appreciate
your views on this issue.
According to official information from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the U.S. Air Force (USAF), no branch of the United
States Government is currently involved with or responsible for investigations into the possibility of alien life on other planets or UFO's. The U.S.
Air Force and NASA have had intermittent, independent investigations of the possibility of alien life on other planets; however, none of these have
produced factual evidence that life exists on other planets, nor that UFO's are related to aliens.
The USAF investigations studied UFO's under Project Blue Book (1947 to 1969). Then in 1977, NASA was asked to examine the possibility of resuming UFO
investigations. After studying all of the facts available, it was determined that nothing would be gained by further investigation, since there was an
absence of tangible evidence.
As a result of experience, investigations, and studies since 1947, the conclusions of Project Blue Book were:
(1) no UFO reported, investigated, and evaluated by the Air Force was ever a threat to our national security;
(2) there was no evidence submitted to, or discovered by, the Air Force that sightings categorized as "unidentified" represented technological
developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge; and
(3) there was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as "unidentified" were extraterrestrial vehicles.
With the termination of Project Blue Book, the USAF regulation establishing and controlling the program for investigating and analyzing UFO's was
discontinued. Documentation regarding the former Project Blue Book investigation was permanently transferred to the Modern Military Branch, National
Archives and Records Service, in Washington , DC and is available for public review and analysis.
Since the termination of Project Blue Book, nothing has occurred that would support a resumption of UFO investigations by the USAF or NASA. It is
unlikely that the Air Force or NASA will become involved in costly investigations in the foreseeable future.
Thank you again for your letter. Hearing the views of all Georgians gives me the opportunity to better understand how important issues could impact
the people of Georgia and the future interests of the nation. For additional information regarding current legislation and my representation of the
Eighth District, I invite you to visit my website at www...
