This review is from: A Need to Know: UFOs, the Military and Intelligence (Paperback)
I always think that the best non- fiction makes propositions that seem outrageous to begin with, until you have read the book. Mr Good evidently feels that the majority of extra- terrestrial races are hostile or at best ambivalent to the interests of humans. He details thoroughly many incidents where Ufos have been fired upon by the military, and other occasions where aircraft have been shot down or "absorbed" by extra- terrestrial craft. Much of the book deals with the world wide government cover up of the situation and the compartmentalisation of knowledge which is only revealed on a "need to know" basis. To back up his claims, many authentic looking documents are reproduced. It becomes apparent that the human race has been engaged in a not so cold war with aliens, since the beginning of the twentieth century. Mr Good is inclined to give credence to much of Philip Corso's information concerning the seeding of alien technology within the military industrial complex, he makes a distinction between "private" and "public" technology, the advanced technological secrets that the military have gleaned from crashed Ufos, are of course mainly "private" and remain hidden within "black" programmes. In the final chapter Good quotes Ben R Rich, the ex- head of the Lockheed Martin "skunk works" who said "We now have the technology to take ET home"!
