One of the reasons that Official Government documents dont use the term UFO is to circumvent the Freedom Of Information Act.
A lot of documents now use terms such as Unknown Ariel Phenonemen and Unidentified Extraterrestrial Sightings etc etc etc.
Unless you know the term that was used in each document you are likely to end up within a maze of FOIA protocol.
If you ask for FOIA info on say a UFO in say Montreal, if the Official Documents relate to it as a UAP or UES or other acronyms then you are likely
to get a response along the lines "we have no papers on UFOs in Montreal".
Pretty crafty eh.
Know your nomenclature !
The term UFO is very old hat nowadays !!
