More than thirty of us ufology types made brief presentations to a panel of six former congressman intended to be similar to actual congressional Hearings panels. Steve Bassett managed to get a wealthy individual to spend more than half a million dollars to bring in the presenters and to pay each former congressman $20,000 for the week.
Presenters were not paid, but their expenses were covered. Some evening lectures were provided as well. Many different opinions were presented. There is simply no way to know what good, if any, will come out of the event. I was especially impressed with presentations by former military people from several different countries as well as the USA. A movie will be made and there was live internet streaming during the presentations. Perhaps some journalists will be motivated to blow the lid off the Cosmic Watergate as Woodward and Bernstein did for the Political Watergate.
