France Posts Secret OVNI files!

According to a recent report on Yahoo dot com, France has opened up its secret government files that tracks UFO sightings. Or as they are known in France, OVNIs. France is weird. They criticise the US for the way we act. They love Jerry Lewis. Then they go and decide they will open classified documents and post them on the Internet about their "secret" OVNI files.

Yahoo reports that:

A phalanx of beefy security guards formed a barrier in front of the space agency (CNES) headquarters where the announcement was made, "to screen out uninvited UFOlogists," an official explained.

Thank goodness for phalanxes of security in France. They can keep out UFOlogists but they can't keep out the Nazis. Go figure.

Anyhow the reports are supposedly very extensive and can be found at here.

According to Yahoo:

Other countries collect data more or less systematically about unidentified flying objects, notably in Britain and in the United States, where information can be requested on a case-by-case basis under the Freedom of Information Act.

"But we decided to do it the other way around and made everything available to the public," Patenet said.

The aim was to make it easier for scientists and other UFO buffs to access the data for research.

The website itself -- which crashed host servers hours after it was unveiled due to heavy traffic -- is extremely well organized and complete, even including scanned copies of police reports.
