Hi Nick:

It is interesting that you would chime in on this topic. Years
ago I read  "UFO A Deadly Concealment" by Derek Sheffield. I was
so interested in the book I later started up written
correspondence with him on his investigations into the Belgium
triangle UFO sightings of 1989/1990. He wrote of harrassment via
the British Post Office. He states in his book that about 2
dozen pieces of mail, including registered mail, involving his
investigation into the 1989/90 Belgium UFO flap never made it to
their destinations.

He also wrote of several encounters with your where you seemed
to give him incomplete information. When I wrote him of your
book, "Open Skies, Closed Minds", he was shocked. He thought you
were a government debunker. Here are some of the things he
states happened when he contacted you for information of the
British Government's knowledge of the March 30/31, 1990 Belgium
F-16 UFO encounter:

Your department handled radar enquires but you had no figures
concerning them.

You first told him that radar can have spurious returns but
later admitted skilled radar operators can discern them from
real objects.

You told Derek that in 1992 there were 147 UFO reports and when
he asked for information on the sightings was given "a few
sparse details - heavily censored - which revealed no details
that could be checked."

Derek was left with the impression after contacting you that the
he "...was surprised at the standard of investigation that the
Ministry of Defense attributed to these reports; in the main
they consisted of  minimal enquiries that only indicated a token
interest and a juvenile attitude..." And wrote of  "reference by
Mr Pope to a particular book that would have reduced the whole
subject to one of science fiction. But, of course, that could
have been the intention".

Now, 11 years later do you have any information on who was doing
it and why Sheffield's mail was being intercepted? Do you still
stand on your earlier statements that the Belgium Air Force
and/or NATO did not notify the British MoD of a UFO traveling
toward the UK at 1,000 mph and 6 minutes out?
