You missed the point. The reality of this discussion is that we
were pointing out that the ET hypothesis was taken seriously
outside the United States to demonstrate ET is not just popular
in the USA.

It's you who is now limiting this question to government
officials, whereas I mentioned them only as further demonstration
of my point. It is also you who now demands that there should be
a vast majority of it them who take ET seriously, thereby doubly
corrupting the discussion.

Sorry, this is total hogwash. There is no human made craft around
that can at the same time hover, fly at speeds of a few miles
p.h. and accelerate with over 40 G's through the speed of sound
and all that without making a sound.

The aircraft you refer to is the Aurora spy plane which falls in
the category of human made craft. One of the clues that this
plane was flying were the results of measurements by the US
Geological Survey. The USGS is the outfit that monitors
earthquakes and they tracked Aurora when it went through the
sound barrier. Does that sound like a plane that makes no sound?

Hogwash again. I should simply say do some elementary research on
this one, James. The people who were involved in this
investigation would either have been insulted or would have
rolled over the floor over this explanation. Ground clutter! The
official explanation was 'unknown craft'.

You are partially right that the F16 pilots chasing the UFO did
not witness the object, but then we are talking about visual
contact. There was radar contact, however, and the position and
manoeuvers recorded on radar tape matched the observations of
multiple witnesses on the ground.

The facts are that a few individuals have a reluctance to do even
the most basic research, which is very apparent from the fact
that they are not even aware of the most popular debunkers
'explanation' of this case.
