Is this significant?

Hi everyone, this is my 1st post after being an avid reader of ATS for some time.
Today I came across this article on page 3 of the UK Observer (by no means a tabloid rag!)
What are everyone's thoughts on the story, and the prominence the story has been given, (it was a full page spread in the actual paper.)

"The truth is out: X-Files go public

British UFO 'sightings' investigated by a secret branch of the MoD are soon to be revealed and officials are braced for a torrent of inquiries"

Web version of article HERE

Insignificant, yes. There will be nothing revealed that will blow anyone's mind. Just more of the stuff you see people discuss all the time....lights in the sky, eyewitness reports, etc. But nothing that will sway the discussion one way or another.

And some might need to consider that the lack of mind blowing evidence is just what it looks like, that perhaps the government has no more information about the subject than you can use Google for, and that perhaps there is, in fact, nothing to have information on other than a large amount of people's overactive imaginations coupled with circumstantial evidence and desire to believe in something that makes them feel special somehow, who knows.

But again, there will be nothing in these files that will fire up a renewed discussion about any specific cases, etc.

Some further information (and links to other articles) can be found in the thread started a couple of weeks ago entitled "Britain to release 160 UFO files", including a link to the website of several of the researchers quoted in this new article.

Kind Regards,

You're most probably correct IgnoreTheFacts about the content of the files, but it was the prominence of the story in the paper itself, and the straight forward reporting of the matter by a defence correspondent that interested me. It wasn't treated like a piece of sci-fi.

Thanks for the links IssacKoi, I'll look at them with interest.
