Hello, Joe,

I have given a short comment in my previous post. Let me repeat
it, and add an exemple:

If some secret service knows things it does not want you to know,
it won't tell you.

All military secrets work that way. In 1944, when Allies decided
to land in Normandy, they did not call Hitler and they did not
announce it in advance in the press.

Now, good spies may learn things before everybody. The
preparation of the atomic bomb in Los Alamos, for instance.

Stalin was informed before Truman!

So, there may be leaks. But they may be covered up by false
information. Surely, you know all that.

The big question, it seems to me, is whether it is appropriate or
not to maintain UFO secrecy, and how long, for the sake of
everybody?

I guess that, if you know the answer, you won't tell me.


Cordially,

Gildas Bourdais
