Wrong. The reasons why the Army nor the Navy have it released
their UFO files are much beyond than you suppose and if you read
the Brazilian UFO Magazine you will learn them, specially our
next edition # 183.

Nobody said otherwise, but Fontes has been dead for decades and
in the last 2 decades A. J. Gevaerd has travelled 50 countries
in over 130 trips to take the Brazilian Ufology to the most
mumerous audiences he possibly could, some time at great expense
to his personal time, his family and his business

>>3 - Mr. Kentaro about Varginha, the documents might have been

Well, this is quit different than is widelly known from other
parties. Remember that Rodriges has become a critical of things
that he himself discovered, reason why he has taken serious hits
by the entire Brazilian UFO Community.

Wrong again. You definitely need to read the Brazilian UFO
Magazine, where it is fully explained.

>And even then you didn't ask for them! It was the IstoE

Wrong once more time. Istoe journalist Rodrigo Cardoso was
detailledly instructed about what to ask and whom to ask to get
that material by A. J. Gevaerd, Marco Petit and Fernando Ramalho
for weeks. Rodrigo would never reach that document wasn't for
these three, because, in the first place, he didn't know what to
ask and to whom. And neither knew the importance of the
documents. What you can't see, among other things, is that it
was all an strategy to have Istoe's immense power in Brazil to
achieve what UFO reseachers couldn't. I.e. to work for the
Brazilian Ufology.

The closest to "Extremely relevant documents" coming from the
Navy was the ones it released in September as a direct request
made by the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), that
you dislike so much, with the help of congressman Chico Alencar,
obtained directly from Navy Command through the Ministery of
Defense. Read the magazine, Kentaro.

Did at least you know that the 1,200 original pages of documents
that Edison Boaventura obtained were handled to him by an former
officer who openly asked him to give them all and immediately to
the entire Brazilian UFO Community, and that he sat on them and
waited 10 long years and even did an attemp to sell the papers
by over US$ 40,000 that weren't his for his own benefit ? Did
you ? Did you at least know that the only reason that those
1,200 original pages of documents are now available to everyone
is because the pressure put over him by the Brazilian Committee
of UFO Researchers (CBU), it is A. J. Gevaerd, and that made him
to finally handle those public records in his possesion to the
entire society ? Did you ? And that it was done with big
announcement by him himself in the Brazilian UFO Magazine?
