It seems a shame to me, from a purely homo-sapian-centric point of view,
that there is all this concentration about a "faliure" on our part as UFO
researchers.... Why is this?  We imbue awesome powers, technological,
intellectual, and sometimes even spiritual, into these intruders into our
realm, yet somehow feel compelled to place the blame on...who...US!??

What did *we* do wrong?

Isn't trust earned?

Does the lab rat have the obligation, morally and intellectually, to
"explain" the scientest who is conducting the genetic experiments on him?

I'm not suggesting the lab rat ought not get nervous about the next
experiment, that seems a reasonable response to me.  But take
responsibility for their behaviour?  Their actions?  Their agenda?  Their
lies?  Their propoganda?  Their mind games?

Nah...best just push the button that releases another pellet of food,
paycheck, what have you, and move on.

Needless to say, the time to get particularily worried about the so called
'aliens' is about the time they stop conducting their covert activities and
thrust themselves into the forefront of human culture.

However, given their modus operandi for recorded human history, I wouldn't
hold my breath about it.

The UFOs will reveal themselves in a time which matches their timetable, in
a manner which matches their agenda, in a way that produces the reactions
they desire, aind without concern for me, you, Kevin Randle, Phillip Klass,
or any other UFO proponent, or detractor, of the last several thousands
