Don, I think the military attitude towards UFOs is similar to
Sergeant Schultz on the old TV series Hogan's Heroes. Whenever
he was confronted with a problem that he did not, or was not,
able to deal with, he would reply, "I know nothing! I see

It is similar to our foreign policy. When someone kills their
civilians such as Libya... someone we can easily deal with...
then we bomb them. Someone with a stronger military such as
Iran, then we just condemn their actions. So extrapolate said
policy to the next level and 'ignoring' the issue becomes the
next step.
