Whole article. It's a short one.

LONDON (Reuters) - The British government will publish files on reported UFO sightings as part of a shake-up of its laws on freedom of information.

Among the documents to be published is the "Rendlesham File," which deals with one of the country's best known sightings of an unidentified flying object.

Until now, only about 20 members of the public have seen the file, which relates to a sighting in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, eastern England, in 1980.

According to some UFO enthusiasts, eyewitnesses including U.S. officers at a nearby military base saw a brilliantly lit spaceship land in the forest on two consecutive nights.

Skeptics say the witnesses were fooled by the beam from a lighthouse on the nearby coast.

The Rendlesham file has been available to the public for some time but only at the discretion of the Ministry of Defense.

Now, the government says it will publish it on the Internet before the end of this week, along with other files on reported UFO sightings.

"These first steps mark important progress toward changing the culture of government and extending the public's right to know what is being done in their name," Freedom of Information Minister Yvette Cooper said in a statement.

The government says it intends to repeal or amend up to 100 pieces of legislation which currently prohibit disclosure of information. It aims to replace them with provisions of a new Freedom of Information Act, passed in 2000. (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&cid=570&ncid=753&e=1&u=/nm/20021128/sc_nm/space_ufos_dc)

Will have to wait and see how much of the information is blacked out.

I'm skeptical!

If its going to be released it won't have any good info - something like this isn't exactly how we're going to get 'official' verification of ETs. Although it should be some good reading - I'd hope that a link is posted when the files are available.

Its not a matter of believing, its a matter of thinking that anything ground breaking will be published. I don't think humanity could handle having direct contact with aliens right now - we can't even handle direct contact between different cultures here on Earth. :(

Where do you think all this Apple Technology is coming from!!! Sheesh!

Apple was started to disseminate reverse engineered technologies taken from the Roswell and other UFO recoveries... Have you ever seen the CD start up screen and installation operation for installs on Mac OS7 and later... eeeerie... definitely part of an ultra stable alien software platform... Truth or MacRumor ;)

:cool:
