"The issue has to do with this [notion of] disclosure," said Alexander. "The assumption in the UFO community -- and, frankly, the general population -- is that UFOs are secret and all the information is automatically classified. My position is that is not true."
The sending of the letters was revealed exclusively to The Huffington Post. Alexander is author of the book: "UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities,"
Alexander spent 25 years maneuvering through top levels of the U.S. government and the military, searching for the supposed decades-long UFO cover-up.
“Alexander isn't looking to get the government to reveal that some UFOs may be extraterrestrial craft. He only wants to promote an environment in which members of the military feel comfortable talking about their experiences.”, says the article of The Huffington Post, in its edition of May 17, 2012.
