Clearly the UFO subject has been enveloped in secrecy for generations. Despite the many attempts by citizens to break that secrecy and get the official truth about UFOs, silence remains the order of the day.

At stake is more than genuine knowledge of what we are dealing with, but any hope of preserving what remains of transparent governance and a democratic society.
