Yet another in a long list of articles mired in the assumption that UFOs, if "extraordinary," must be extraterrestrial craft:

Why not full disclosure on UFO sighting?

Given that exhaustive research hasn’t revealed any signs of life elsewhere in our own solar system, and that the next likely candidate is a goodly jaunt even at the speed of light, it’s not likely that we’re being buzzed by alien life forms.

NASA, then, might well be correct in insisting that there was nothing extraordinary about a UFO sighting near Kecksburg, in the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania, where something fell from the sky and was retrieved by soldiers in 1965. Yet it has reacted to requests for records of the incident as if it was keeping a little green man in a freezer.

I'm a relative newcomer to UFO research and The Disclosure Project. There is much chaff and plain old bullshit to sift and shovel through I'm discovering.

Maybe we'll never find the truth. Not until Klaatu shuts down all satellites and electrical power for five minutes anyway. ;-)

The Disclosure Project is a big part of the bullshit of which you speak. But don't take my word for it!

Oh yes, because the aliens have the exact same technological growth tree that we have had they could'nt possibly have a better understanding of physics or gravity and only develop a conventional linear chemical rocket means of going anywhere...COME ON...

I am in fact discovering that anyone who has/had/did have anything to do with any government (especially ours) is/can be a disinformation agent.

Very muddy water. Need super-duper filters.

Considering that the object in question was likely (as writers on the subject have noted) simply a milsat, probably a top secret spy satellite, it makes sense for NASA to have played it close to the vest. However, you'd think after forty-plus years, the secret would get a bit bit stale and, um, declassifiable?

Unless, of course, it was...manned, and a failed military attempt at humanned spaceflight....

Which, if it were, should still be declassified, as government failure or embarrassment is not a legal basis for secrecy or classification, at least technically (if not actually) under provisions of the FOIA/PA/MDR laws and regulations.
