- Continuing its legal battle under the
Freedom of Information Act against government secrecy, attorney Peter A.
Gersten, Executive Director of Citizens Against UFO Secrecy, Inc (CAUS),
a nonprofit Arizona activist organization dedicated to ending all secrecy
surrounding this planet's contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence,
announced today the filing of a new FOIA lawsuit.
- A 1998 CAUS lawsuit, still pending in
the Federal Court in Phoenix, is against the Department of Army for documents
involving the allegations of Col. Philip Corso in his book The Day After
Roswell. This new lawsuit is against the Department of Defense for information
about the alien craft seen in our skies.
- Gersten, accompanied by a dozen eyewitnesses
on the steps of the US District Court in Phoenix, stated "its time
someone in authority is held accountable and responsible for identifying
these strange craft that are continually sighted in our skies and sometimes
over populated areas. Its time we knew exactly what these objects are
and more importantly, their purpose."
- He described these craft as "either
delta, boomerang, triangular or v-shaped; ranging in size from a house
to a football field; moving very slowly or apparently floating; little
or no sound; and with many lights including, on occasion, a red trailing
light." Some of these objects, according to the CAUS director, were
seen in the Hudson Valley in 1984 through 1987; in Phoenix, Arizona on
March 13, 1997; in Salisbury, North Carolina from April-June 1998 and Sedona,
Arizona on July 15, 1998 as well as countless other places throughout the
planet since the early 80s.
- One eyewitness stated that "I swear
this craft just appeared over my head. I can say for certain I saw lights
at each one of the three corners of the craft and at least one on each
of the sides. I did see what appeared to be either a large light or a
window directly in the center of the triangle. The eerie part was the
silence for a craft hovering so close. It disappeared just as suddenly
as it appeared and was gone again without any visible movement. It was
- "At a time when everyone is anxious
about terrorist attacks, its alarming that no government or military agency
appears concerned about these enigmatic and apparently technologically
advanced craft that have unrestricted access to our skies," Gersten
stated as he entered the Federal Court to file the CAUS papers.
