On the whole I would say people nowadays are much more readily willing to believe stories about flying saucers than they were 20 to 30 years ago.
While this is a good thing (we should be open to new but hard to believe ideas that may
) we still need to be critical and level-headed.
And here's why.
While skimming through some older NSA FOIA docs I stumbled on this gem:
- Department of State AIRGRAM - Subject: Flying
Saucers Are a Myth)
Clearly the suggestion is that the NSA, or another intelligence agency, leaked misinformation to the author, possibly through a field agent or by
simply releasing doctored press releases to the public.
This sort of thing is insidious. It suggests many things we take for granted may simply be incorrect.
To maintain objectivity we need corroboration from first-hand, primary witnesses and many different independently corroborating sources. Without that
we may be allowing disinformation campaigns that were meant to confuse the United States enemy to bamboozle us, her citizens.
This is why all UFO advocates need to evaluate very carefully for themselves, is there a
conspiracy cover-up or a grand foul-up
