La vérité est hors là-bas.

The CT's must be having a field day. First, the secret Marilyn Monroe FBI files. Now, 50 years of French OVNI (UFO) investigation files, 25% of which remain unexplained, have been released and made available on the internet. The details are astonishing.

I've been reading quite a few of the news stories provoked by the French revelation, including descriptions of many unexplained cases. Much of it is consistent with some of the CT stories we've heard over the years.

Take, for instance, the case of a French airplane crew that saw a strange object tracking their plane. When they reported the incident after landing, they found out that radar crews had been tracking the object. I'm not a radar expert, but as far as I know, radar cannot pick up swamp gas, ball lightning, strange cloud formations, optical illusions, high altitude hallucinations, or the planet Venus.

Obviously, we have no evidence that these unexplained phenomena are alien in origin or that they're not. However, I, for one, am happy that at least one government has opened these files for public inspection. Whatever the source of these "objects," open discussion and investigation may lead to the kind of solid answers that will resolve the issue once and for all. Keeping these documents as "classified national security information" encourages paranoid speculation and pseudoscientific theorizing on the part of both UFOlogists and skeptics.

We have the evidence. Now, we just have to figure out what it means.
