My position with respect to the work of the Disclosure Project
has been stated here and elsewhere numerous times. I support the
fundamental goal of the Disclosure Project which is to bring
about congressional hearings for the witnesses and to end the
government imposed UFO/ET truth embargo.

Steven Greer's views on a range of issues are well known. I
agree with some, disagree with others. I have never been on the
board of CSETI or the Disclosure Project. I have assisted the DP
when it was appropriate. I will assist anyone or any group
striving to end the truth embargo.


Regards,

Stephen Bassett
