One of the reasons people hit the delete key is because ACC and
its claims are sounding more like previous claims made by others.

For example:

Late last fall a man named Lee Shargel, who was billed as a NASA
scientest, claimed based upon tales told by people who were
absolutly-impeccable-never-wrong,  "space scientists" who had
told him that on Jan 24th 1997 "ET radio waves would bathe the
earth which would begin a new day for mankind."  Never happened,
but gulliable people were spreading the tale as absolute gospel
truth to never be doubted.

Last August when the Mars rock annnouncement was made by NASA,
all the insiders-never-wroing-intelligence-sources-who-knew-every-last-de
tail, claimed that this was the precursor to the "big ET reality
announcement by President Clinton BEFORE the November election."
Never happened.

Not to mention the Yellowbook/10,000 year history of ET dealings
with mankind/how Christ was an ET blah blah tale which gained
momentum and legs so to speak last year and early this year.
This tale was supposed to climax on April 24th 1997 with mass ET
landings in the desert SW -- White Sands area in which the ET's
would show the world.... blah blah.  Keep in mind that the people
purveying this tale always claimed that the source was an
intelligence-community-insider-who
was-never-wrong-about-anything- AND anybody that questioned the
story just didn't understand how deep inside the government he
was, and why his information was impeccable.   Never happened.

This dates me but in 1974 people in the UFO community were all
lathered up with the tale of:  New President Gerald Ford is going
to hold a press conference to announce the existance of UFOs/ET.
When asked where the info came from it was always some unnamed
high level source that was never wrong.
Never Happened.

What I have just named constitutes the tip of the iceburg in the
UFO community over the years on these kind of wild claims and
stories.

There is also not one drop of hard evidence about the so called
alien treaty.  Just because a circumstantial evidence case is
made about something does not mean that the authors
interpretation of the facts is correct.

Please not ACC is not claiming this but has admitted that they
are only passing on the tales/stories told by others who are
nameless.

In effect they are putting out gossip to folks, admitting its gossip,
then everybody has kittens and believes it.

You are understandbly unaware of the early history of Air Defense
in the United States.

Hanford, Seattle, Los Angles, Oak Ridge, Chicago, Minneapolis not
to mention MANY others had anti-aircraft batteries that were
later converted to Nike missile.

Bell labs was just as important as Hanford, and the other cities
I mentioned.  At the time the military was going to put AA in all
major cities that they considered targets of the new threat the
Soviet Union.  Later that plan was scaled back but generally
included all the defense plants and air bases to some degree or
another.

ACC's source was unaware of this also to call them "anti-missile
batteries", since anti missile batteries really didn't begin to
be tested in the very late 50s, and some limited test deployment
in the early 60s.

During the late 40s and early 50s the greates fear the US had was
not attack by ET's, but bomber attacks by the Soviet Union.
Sarkeroff  (developer of the Soviet H-Bomb) said in his Memoirs
that had Stalin perceived "ANY" military weakness in the United
States, he would of attacked with the intention of destroying us.

Bottom line is if a wild story or tale is posted on the Web
gulliable people will lap it up and defend it to its death.  When
it dies, they will move on to the next incredible tale, under the
notion of "well sooner or later something truthful will come
out."
