Subject: Magonia Supplement 43

Magonia Supplement 43 is now available on the Magonia website.
Here is John Harney's Editorial:


Issue No. 41 of this publication was devoted to discussing the
ETH and the lack of evidence to support it. This provoked the
usual knee-jerk reactions from members of the UFO UpDates
mailing list, including some who had obviously not even bothered
to read it before mailing their comments.

One of the points I made, and not for the first time, was about
the impossibility of the evidence for ET spacecraft being kept
secret. The ETH, at least as it is interpreted by many
ufologists, depends on persuading people to believe that it is
possible to keep the saucers secret. Stanton Friedman commented:

"The naivety shown by the notion that we would have access to
radar and spy satellite info, re space and airborne uncorrelated
targets produced by the Aerospace Defense Command and NRO
satellites and collected by NSA while listening to their foreign
equivalents is monumental.

"Just note that more than 95% of the 156 UFO documents released
by the NSA are whited out. No way that is all sources and
methods data." I replied, pointing out that he hadn't told us
how UFO information gathered from radar or satellites, by
governments and private organisations, amateur or professional,
everywhere in the world is kept secret. I also wondered how he
knew what was in the whited out parts of the UFO documents, as
he implies that this hidden information concerns evidence for
alien spacecraft. If the sceptics indulge in "research by
proclamation" as Friedman constantly tells us, then surely he is
indulging in research by showmanship in waving whited-out
documents at UFO conferences.

Anyway, I intend to press for a plausible explanation as to how
every government in the world has managed to preserve the Secret
of the Saucers for over 50 years. I will probably have to wait a
long time.
