Veteran environmental lobbyist Edwin Rothschild has been named the director of a new organization called <a href="http://www.freedomofinfo.org/index.html">The Coalition for Freedom of Information</a>, which hopes to acquire UFO documents and debris for scientific analysis. The group has already issued a Freedom of Information Act(FOIA) <a href="http://www.freedomofinfo.org/news/foia.html">request</a> and offers an <a href="http://www.freedomofinfo.org/letter.html">online letter that you can e-mail to your senator demanding that the truth be told.</a> (attached at the bottom of this post also). The effort has the support of Clinton's former chief of staff, John Podesta, who has declared: 'It is time for the government to declassify records that are more than 25 years old and to provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon.' Who is funding this new organization? A citizen's group? SETI researchers?. Nope, it's the <a href="http://www.freedomofinfo.org/news/pr_01.html">Sci-Fi Channel</a>, which says in a press release that 'when credible scientists conclude that 5% to 10% of UFOs cannot be explained by natural or artificial causes, we think it is worth taking a much closer look at what is clearly a real and ubiquitous phenomenon.' As it turns out, the Sci-Fi channel's real motives are to use the organization to increase media coverage of UFO phenomenon in anticipation of its forthcoming alien abduction series <a href="http://www.scifi.com/taken/index_flash.html">Taken. </a> Anyone else disagree?
