Washington, DC - November 13th, 2007
This is a preliminary report, first in a series, on yesterday's event in Washington, DC at the National Press Club (NPC), organized by producer James Fox ("Out of the Blue") and Leslie Kean, reporter (who recently won a major FOIA lawsuit against NASA to release the 1965 Kecksberg UFO related documents) and moderated by former Arizona Governor, Fife Symington. The NPC press conference presented the personal testimonies of major military and civilian pilots and intelligence figures from around the world on the subject of official foreign investigations of UFOs.
Former Arizona Governor, Fife Symington
NPC UFO Panel Moderator
The mass media was well represented with major news networks and reporters from Reuters, The Washington Times, CNN and Fox News and others from Canada, Europe and Africa present to cover this remarkable event. While at the NPC UFO conference, I was interviewed by a Canadian TV reporter and asked about "the greatest UFO incident in Canadian history" and who would be the best people to contact in Canada on UFO affairs.
In reply, I gave the young lady a synopsis of the Shag Harbor incident, recommended that she study the work of Wilber Smith and told her to contact Prof. Nick Balaskas of York University and Errol Bruce Knapp of UFO Updates as experts in Canadian UFO history.
She then asked me "Well, why don't I know about this, if it is so famous?"
I laughed and said:
"Maybe you don't watch the History Channel enough!"
She then asked me "Does Prime Minister Harper know about this"?
My reply was: "I cannot speak for Mr. Harper but he should know about it as he is the one most responsible… I would recommend you ask Mr. Harper, himself."
CNN News was represented by Gary Tuchman. The CNN reporter asked some very interesting questions and he covered the event in "a fair and balanced way," treating the participants with all respect due to them (despite "Wolfman" Blitzer's dismissive remarks and Bob McCaffrey's snide and crass comments, after Tuchman's piece was aired last night).
