Ergo the flat response to the announcement except for the media
who don't know any better anyway. The one I found most
interesting was the airport landing and the air traffic
controller, but even that was devoid of any knowlegable input
either by the controllers or the MOD.

Anyone who has ever taken off or landed an airplane can tell you
at first blush that airplanes could not do and can't do that, if
you can go by the limited numbers provided on this incident.

It seems that the MOD is starting to believe - or uses as a red
herring - the limited science and expertise brought by the
single writer of the Condign report. I am referring to the
nonsense about plasma influencing people's thinking. They have
it in their badly flawed report and now it supposed to be an
explanation when in fact it is absurd. But the media will buy it
and that's all that counts.

It's in an MOD report so it must be true.

At any rate since we know that reports have been held back by
the Canadian government and the American government, why not the
UK goverment. Can't emabarrass the government after all whose
air defence systems can't do anything about this phenomenon. And
that's what it really comes down to. No threat to national
security? Wouldn't matter if it was because they can't do
anything about it. It's better to stick your head in the sand
and hope for the best.
