Description
While still on active duty in the U.S. Army during the 1980s, Colonel John Alexander created an interagency group to explore the controversial topic of UFOs, with participants from the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force; from the CIA, NSA, and DIA; and from the aerospace industry, all holding Top Secret clearance. What they discovered was not at all what was expected. Here Alexander reviews the cases they investigated, and answers such questions as: What was really in Hanger 18? Did a UFO land at Holloman Air Force Base? What happened at Roswell? What does the government know about UFOs? What has happened with disclosure in other countries? Has the U.S. reverse-engineered a UFO? And why don't presidents get access to UFO info?

"A former Green Beret commander and developer of weapons at Los Alamos, New Mexico, Alexander reviews major events in UFO history, finding both facts and flaws: 'The gulf between the public's opinion of UFOs and what most scientists believe regarding them is cavernous.'... [Alexander examined] classic cases, including Roswell; the Gulf Breeze, Florida, photos; and unexplained incidents occurring within the U.S. strategic defense systems (such as sightings by NORAD installations), plus claims of reverse engineering on captured crafts; the Phoenix Lights, which Arizona's governor at the time admitted witnessing; and the documented radiation poisoning suffered by Betty Cash and Vicky Landrum after their reported 1980 encounter near Houston. Alexander succeeds in separating solid facts and credible witnesses from the myths and conspiracy theorists. Determining that UFOs, while real, are 'beyond current comprehension,' he sees the extraterrestrial hypothesis as too narrow. UFOs remain an enigma, he concludes, since 'every time we think we have an answer, new observations make the problem more complex'."Publishers Weekly
