"Material Not Turned Over to Scientists Because We Do Not Know

Suspicious that SEDENA did not turn over the video to scientists

The videos showing strange objects picked up by military
aircraft were turned over to Jaime Maussan because he is a
person "who has been interested all of his life" in the study of
said phenomena, and was not given to scientists from
institutions of higher learning "perhaps because we do not know
them  or know who they might be," according to General Gerardo
Clemente Vega Garcia, Secretary of Defense.

"I have no objections to scientists analyzing this and seeing
it, nor do I have any reason to wonder why we didn't turn it
over to them--perhaps because we do not know them or know who
they migh be. Under no circumstances can I suspect any bad faith
in the matter," said Vega with regard to the statements
collected by MILENIO regarding the delivery of evidence to the
UFO researcher, rather than requesting validation from
scientifica organizations.

The Defense Secretary likewise rejected that this could be a
distraction on the part of the federal government, as some
policy watchers have suggested, especially as the Ahumada case
reached its zenith and affected diplomatic relations with Cuba.
"I don't engage in such things, "said the military man.

In an interview with the "Hoy por Hoy" radio show hosted by
Carlos Loret de Mola, Vega Gacia remarked that upon seeing the
recording "I thought that  with  the amount of drug traffic in
the southeast, these could be drug-carrying aircraft. That was
my first impression, because we are constantly working on this.
Two days ago we captured a private plane with drugs, but when I
discerned it along with (other experts), seeing the lights
behind the airplane, its nose and its sides, I told myself there
couldn' t be so many aircraft."

He added that "of course, the phenomenon is unexplained" and
made it clear that Mexican military personnel "never speak of
UFOs or saucers or anything like that--only the sighting of very
strange contacts, incomprehensible in that situation, since
there was absolutely nothing flying in the area, accoridng to
reports from the Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche airport."

The Defense Secretary acknkowledged that there were those who
said that "we are here to distract the public's attention from
the current situation. That is not my purpose, nor do I as a
military man engage in such things."

He acknowledged, however, that there are those who believe in a
distraction theory "and have the right to think as freely as the
may, but I can guarantee that there is no effort of such a

It was remarked that it is unusual for a government or military
agency such as de Secretariat of Defense (SEDENA) to take the
decision to publish a document of such a nature. He was asked if
he had any personal hypothesis about what is shown in the
recordings. He replied: "I have no hypothesis. All I can say is
that those white spots are there, they were recorded, and that
is all the informaiton we have."

Finally, he pointed out that this "can in no way" be considered
a matter of national security, acknowledging that in the U.S.
there is much talk about sightings all over the world. "There is
a community interested in seeing this, but that is far from me.
All I do is make the media available. There it is--there are no
complications nor is there anything extraordinary about it,"
adding that if any researcher or scientist is interested in
seeing the material, it will be at their disposal at SEDENA.
