Chile: Regarding “Military Secrecy”
The accident involving a C-212 Aviocar belonging to the Chilean Air Force (FACh), also known as the Juan Fernández tragedy, was an aviation disaster that took place at 17:48 hours local time (20:48 UTC) on 2 September 2011 when a C-212-300 Aviocar carrying passengers and a military crew crashed into the sea as it approached Robinson Crusoe Island, Chile.
Domestic repercussions were tremendous, as the flight included personalities of the country’s television and social elite, plus military figures. The total number of victims came to 21.
Interpretations as to the causes of the accident have been changing since the very first moment. Furthermore, new background information has been added as to the reasons for the aircraft’s failure: lack of maintenance, insufficient fuel for the journey, excess weight, birds, an undeclared change in pilots, unexpected air turbulence, etc., etc.
Now, “military secrecy” is being invoked to the astonishment of the victims and the entire country to conceal errors (not only in this accident, but many others as well...)
Moving along to the subject of UFOs, which is what concerns us here, we believe that if the Chilean Air Force (FACh) invokes “military secrecy” in an air accident involving civilian and military figures alike, we can easily imagine that should something important become known about the UFO phenomenon, the civilian population would be even less able to receive transparent and timely information on the subject from this branch of the military. It is logical to think that this clause can be invoked whether national sovereignty is affected, and while both subjects are not comparable, the subject of UFOs has indeed been treated as a military secret.
The foregoing is to reflect yet again that the UFO phenomenon is a hard one to discuss, and we will never know, openly and first-hand, what it really is. Much less if it is the hands of military and official agencies that consider themselves the guardians of our collective security. Declassification by military authorities throughout the world has not revealed anything extraordinary...and we believe that the Truth, and transparency of information, are the greatest protection one can afford the population.
A subject that invites earnest reflection.
