5.0 out of 5 stars A hard-nosed, meticulously researched, revealing report., 8 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: You Can't Tell the People: The Definitive Account of the Rendlesham Forest UFO Mystery: The Cover-up of Britain's Roswell (Hardcover)
YOU CAN'T TELL THE PEOPLE There should be a subhead to this book's title: "because they won't believe you." I have just read GEORGINA BRUNI's book that takes its title from BARONESS THATCHER's statement to her "UFO's? You must get your facts right, and you can't tell the people." Dealing with the only UFO sighting in the United Kingdom to be officially acknowledged by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), it recounts - in meticulous detail - the remarkable events that took place twenty years ago in Rendlesham Forest, adjacent to the US airbases at Woodbridge in Suffolk.
From the 'grunts' patrolling the security perimeter of the airbase up to the commanding USAF Major General GORDON WILLIAMS and the British Chief of Defence Staff, LORD HILL-NORTON, there are extraordinary confirmations of what has, for years, been always been denied by the MOD as having any "defence significance."
Georgina Bruni, exhibiting the journalistic traits of a cross between a terrier and a rotweiler, has relentlessly pursued witnesses to the events. In many cases she has managed to get them to talk - on the record - for the first time, about what an official Royal Air Force document describes as: "mysterious sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects." Fascinating stuff.
I have more than a passing interest in these events. During my service as an RAF pilot at RAF Oakington, I was base liaison officer with USAF Mildenhall and also flew, on occasion, into USAF Bentwaters and I am therefore familiar with the aerodromes involved in this account. Subsequently, when living in the United States in 1965, I became an active member of NICAP - the National Investigation Committee on Aerial Phenomena. With Rear Admiral ROSCOE HILLENKOETTER (the CIA's Director of Central Intelligence) and Colonel JOSEPH BRYAN III Chief of the CIA's Psychological Warfare Staff (and former Special Assistant to the Secretary for the Air Force) as key executives of NICAP, and many CIA Intelligence Officers as overt or covert members, NICAP was a serious organisation. They would have welcomed a serious book like this.

the people involved in the forest sighting have since owned up and told the truth, nothing really happened its a hoax.. so this book is a waste of time.

Oh, that... LOL

There were more holes in that investigation, and I use the term loosely, than one can find in a Swiss cheese ;)

yah pretty much like this book!! pretty hard to believe in this book when actual people involved say themselves on film that its a hoax. swiss cheese ??

if you want or need to believe that's up to you, plain fact is spaceships don't exist its all in the mind, UFO can be anything from a plastic bag to who knows floating in the air, read Graham Hancocks Supernatural :) you'll understand everything..
