“UFOs On the Record: debunkers beware”
by Billy Cox, 10 August 2010
(De Void, Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Florida)

Billy Cox gives his views on Leslie Kean’s book, “UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go On the Record”:


Quote from the article:
“Her reasoning is sharpened by two political science professors, Dr. Alexander Wendt of Ohio State University, and the University of Minnesota’s Dr. Raymond Duvall, who contribute an essay, “Militant Agnosticism and the UFO Taboo.” They make a strong case that “the problem of UFO ignorance is fundamentally political before it is scientific.”
