Arizona Senator John McCain, a friend of Symington's who the former Governor describes as "open-minded," acknowledged at a press conference in 2000 that "lights," were seen over Arizona and, "That has never been fully explained. But I have to tell you that I do not have any evidence whatsoever of aliens or UFOs."
I believe that these exercises, culminating in the release of many flares simultaneously, provide a reasonable explanation for the appearance of the peculiar looking lights on that evening. I am, however, monitoring the findings and postulations of organizations interested in aerial phenomena for other possible explanations and I encourage you to do the same.
