On the excellent After Disclosure site, Bryce Zabel writes about the Washington Post's descion to send, not an investigative serious reporter, but one who writes the light, humorous pieces, to the September 27 National Press Club's conference, where retired military personnel spoke about national security issues, and UFOs, at nuclear sites. The Washington Post Makes Fun of Military Officers: An Open Letter to the Washington Post
For some reason, this topic is still considered trivial by just about everyone outside of UFOlogy. Read the comments on uber-skeptic boards like the JREF on this issue, where nit picking over terms is considered more important than the fact of Unidentified craft in our skies. They choose to focus on the irrational idea of ET, rather than the idea our own government or other human forces, are responsible for much of UFO activity, experiments on civilians, etc. This is not to imply aliens are not real, about, or also responsible. Regardless of aliens or humans, the fact is, this has been happening and pretending it isn't real is the irrational reality.
