Greetings, here is another UFO event that may prove noteworthy given recent release of information from Mexico. The Chavez government in Venezuela is no big fan of the Bush administration and may follow a similar course to Mexico in releasing information. President Chavez is an outspoken critic of US policies and was subjected to a failed coup backed by the US. He has backed radical economic principles for Venezuela to make it less dependent on the US. www.marxist.com/Latinam/Chavez_dedicates_20_min.html It can be predicted that if there is a policy rift between different branches of the global controllers of UFO/ET information, then President Chavez of Venezuela and President Fox of Mexico would be two candidates for releasing informatation contrary to US pressure. Incidents such as this downed UFO are likely to be given more coverage in the global media and may be part of a covert global campaign by 'progressives' to disclose more information about the ET presence. This is certainly an important development and one worth watching. In peace Michael E. Salla, PhD *************************************** rense.com/general53/sdei.htm UFO Crashes In Venezuela? From Scott Corrales The Journal of Hispanic Ufology Source: Proyecto Orion 5-22-4 An unidentified flying object crashed last Saturday, May 15, 2004 in the vicinity of the Raul Leoni Hydroelectric Station, also known as the Guri Dam, located on the Caroni River some 100 kilometers from the mouth of the Orinoco River at Puerto Ordaz, Ciudad Bolivar (updated information). The accident, which occurred in the early hours of last Saturday, was witnessed by workers of the dam in question and took place to the northwest of this location. Stringent security measures were taken immediately by active members of the National Guard, who proceeded to cordon off the area. The presence of U.S. personnel was also observed, a common feature in all crashes involving UFOs. It must be noted that the Seismography Unit registered movement at the time of the unusual accident, a detail reminiscent of the Roswell, New Mexico (USA) event of 1947. With regard to an alien presence, no reports have been received at this time. Access to the crash site has been highly complicated due to torrential rains at the site during this time of year. However, accredited personnel from Proyecto Orion is on site, collecting information that shall be broadened in coming hours. Translation (C) 2004. Scott Corrales, Institute of Hispanic Ufology.
