recent Washington Times article:
"A guard told me he was asked to
burn some photographs and not to look at them," said [Donna Hare, a
NASA design illustrator with secret clearance]. "And there was
another guard guarding him, watching him burn the photographs. He looked
at one and it was a picture of a UFO and he immediately was hit in the

The Disclosure Group, a
Virginia-based organization dedicated to forcing the government
to...well...disclose, recently held a press conference to announce their
newest goal: testify before Congress.
The Disclosure Group claims to have

of the moon! The CIA has anti-gravity propulsion technology!
UFOs are turning off our nuclear missiles! Lots of claims, lots of

these woo-woo stories have truth to them, and to what degree. As
we've noticed in the past, just because someone has an advanced degree,
experience in the military or even a Nobel Prize, none of those things
preclude dishonesty, flights of fantasy, faulty memories, or outright
We cannot believe extraordinary, unsubstantiated claims simply because an
intelligent, respected, or experienced person makes them.
