"All UFO Secrets Must Be Disclosed"

So says Brazilian Air Force Brigadier Jose Carlos Pereira, one
of the most distinguished military officers in Brazil, who gave
Brazilian UFO Magazine an exclusive interview last Saturday,
March 8th, 2008

Brigadier Pereira admitted that he is a supporter of our
campaign UFOs: Freedom Of Information Now, and said that "it is
time to end all secrets about UFOs in Brazil and everywhere".

Brigadier Pereira has an impressive military record. He flew all
sorts of aircraft all over the world for 40 years and was a top
authority in the Brazilian Air Force during the last two
decades. Recently he served as General Commander of Comdabra,
The Brazilian Airspace Defense Command and then President of
Infraero - Brazilian Airports Infrastructure Company. He has a
direct line with the president Lula da Silva. Brigadier Pereira
was once considered the man who had the key to the safe the UFO
secrets were kept in.

Brigadier Pereira gave me and my associates Roberto Affonso
Beck, a 50-year UFO researcher and Fernando de Aragao Ramalho an
exclusive, over 4-hour interview not avoiding more than 100
questions. That vast material is now being transcribed and will
be entirely published in our edition 141, April. I presume that
the interview will soon become another Ufological milestone, as
happened with the head of Operation Saucer in the Amazon, given
to me and Marco Antonio Petit by Colonel Uyrange Hollanda in

Among the many things affirmed by Brigadier Jose Carlos Pereira,

"All secrets must be disclosed. There is no reason at all to
keep them away from the citizen, in the military installations.
It seems that the phenomena don't represent any kind of threat
to national security nor a danger to aviation. So, I am in favor
of all files being opened - wherever they are being kept - so
that the population may learn what they contain, especially UFO

He added that "there is a favorable environment in Brazil's
military community in that this matter should be treated openly.
I will do my part, assuring my support to the UFO researchers'
movement that requests government freedom of information".

When asked if he would accept an invitation to take part in an
international effort such as the one conducted by Leslie Kean
and James Fox in Washington, last November, he said he "would
consider that with interest".

Quite significantly, Brigadier Jose Carlos Pereira confirmed
information that we have, since the interview I did with Colonel
Uyrange Hollanda, that I wasn't able to verify 100% with any
other source.

Brigadier Pereira confirmed that, indeed, over 2,000 pages of
documents resulted from Operation Saucer, in the Amazon, as well
as over 500 photos of the phenomena and 16 hours of Super-8mm
and Super-16mm film. And he said that all this material is in
Brasilia. This is very significant.

I will keep you posted of new developments. The entire interview
will be translated into English soon.
