Argentina: Researcher Challenges Official Commission Over
Ituzaingo UFO
By Sebastian Aranguren

The enigmatic sequence of UFO cases recorded in recent times
over Ituzaingo in Western Greater Buenos Aires has led ufologist
Luis Burgos to launch a challenge against the recently created
Comision de Investigaciones de Fenomenos Aeroespaciales (CIFA),
urging it to discuss the chain of events that now numbers dozens
of witnesses in that sector of Greater Buenos Aires. The
Ituzaingo events resulted in a flurry of media coverage which
brought to light the manifestations of strange, unidentified
flying objects plowing the nation's airspace without any
official clarification on the bizarre situation. From the
organization he leads - Fundacion Argentina de Ovnilog=EDa (FAO)
Burgos was among the first ufologists to popularize the subject
by reporting on a series of phenomena taking place in precisely
the area that now concentrates the attention of scholars,
journalists and curiosity-seekers, and which he dubbed "The
Western Corridor" (Corredor del Oeste, in Spanish). In the
preliminary investigations he has performed, as he advised
Expedientes Secretos, the cases occurring at Ituzaingo are not
necessarily framed within manifestations of alien intelligence,
but rather "the possibility that they may be U.S. or Israeli
experimental aircraft." Speaking in a personal capacity rather
than as director of his UFO research organization, and RADIO,
the researchers' collective that he presides, Burgos railed
against CIFA, believing that the specialized commission must "at
least issue an official communiqu=E9 about what's going on in

In conversation with Expedientes Secretos, Burgos stated that
the current wave of cases detected over Ituzaingo began last
March and noted in this regard that the two and a half months
elapsed since the first sightings merit "an explanation or at
least information" on the cases on the part of the organization
constituted by elements of the Argentinean Air Force and
ufologists of national renown.

Instead, Burgos remarked: "we are faced with absolute
silence... if we have a phenomenon occurring as close at hand as
Ituzaingo, and a research commission engaged in these matters,
why it has not become involved in the situation cannot be
understood." The official silence noted by Burgos has given rise
to speculation that the unidentified flying objects in Western
Greater Buenos Aires "are triangular super-secret aircraft"
whose design and operation Burgos attributes to the United
States and Israel. What is taking place in Ituzaingo, in
Burgos's opinion, "may go beyond a conventional phenomenon with
UFO characteristics." In other words, he said "it may be placed
within both a terrestrial and extraterrestrial context, and the
Commission should account for it."
