Subject: Maybe Bear This In Mind?


Hello List,

"FBI destroyed thousands of UFO reports, 1949 memo reveals
Agents routinely destroyed reports containing 'nothing of FBI
interest' due to lack of filing space"

www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/apr/11/fbi-destroys-ufo-reports

Maybe we should bear that in mind when anyone says that release
of Gov't archives or F.o.I replies concerning UFOs (or anything
thing else the establishment is sensitive about), are 'reliable'
or 'significant' or even meaningful in any way.

The fact is, Gov't (including bureaucrats & 'security') will
hide anything they want - because they can.

For instance, the incidence of corruption & criminality among
police-chiefs and judges is routinely hidden - because they can.

So all statistics on those subjects are drastically skewed.

However Bayesian analysis -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayesian_average

- shows a different picture (basically, say re: corrupt judges &
police-chiefs, it allows you to posit "1 proven 'true' case
represents c. 100 hidden 'true' cases", which is subjective yet
more probably represents the reality).


Cheers
