Great idea S+F however...
I think most people truly interested in the phenomena are well aware of these reports, except maybe the lesser knowns you mentioned in your 1st
paragraph (I'd never heard of them). I think researchers will drool over this, but we are not all researchers. You can already see from replies your
OP's haven't been fully read (myself included) I hope that doesn't discourage you because there are definitely people on this forum that are like
yourself, and kudos to those of you who really dive in. I think you just need to understand that there are different types of enthusiasts.
The official stance of the United States of America: UFOs pose no threat to national security there for we no longer need to investigate them.
Yes the US has provided disclosure. A very weak cop out of a disclosure IMO. I don't necessarily subscribe to conspiracies and cover-ups by the govt
at least not in such a grand scale. I do think what we have is an official position of non-action, willful ignorance, plausible deniability and a
massive unwillingness to touch the subject with a 10ft pole if it can at all cost be avoided. Anything they have covered up (if so) can be covered
under it was in the best interest of the people to do so (and maybe legitimately so).
We do know that it's been more than alluded to by some of the researchers hired by the US that these reports fell short, that they did not use the
best cases to study, that there was an overtone of what they were expected to conclude.
In the end, the cases presented in those reports are interesting but were never enough to say what we all want to hear and not enough for science to
jump the hurdle of the distance factor at least not openly. Personally I don't want to look back, the answers could be there but will never be
acknowledged because too much time has passed for most of those cases. I will look to the now and to the future and continue to hope that in my
lifetime we can say we know what UFOs are and have the proof that no one can deny.
Having said all that I hope your thread does well and you achieve what you hope to, hard work should be rewarded.
