Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Washington Post blog
Posted: May 14th, 2013
The first three days of UFO hearings have been interesting. The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure is not a real congressional hearing. For a stipend of $20,000, six former members of Congress are sitting at the National Press Club and listening to 30 hours of testimony about UFOs. The media has been covering all this up for decades, apparently, in a coordinated effort with the CIA people on the staff of every media organization to suppress information. Activist Stephen Bassett observed that this subject is a third rail for media and public officials. You can do anything and get out of the closet on it and itll be no problem but this watch out, your careers on the line. We are doing it because we have been brainwashed to laugh at it. Unless we change directions were likely to end up where were going, enigmatically quipped Steven Greer, of the Disclosure Project. An Air Force colonel now in his 80s, Richard French, claimed to have been responsible for covering UFOs up. Id say it was swamp gas. Anything we could come up with to convince the general public. At that time there was an average of about three a week ufos I went down there observed em just regularly. Former Senator Mike Gravel ... noted that ... It is the height of human arrogance to think that we are the only sentient beings that can think. Former Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick [added] I think todays whole experience has been one of intelligence higher than normal in todays society.
