The oft-recited claims by various government agencies that they don't investigate UFOs and that UFOs represent no threat to national security may be closer to the truth than many believe--at least semantically speaking. Prior to a lecture at the Huntington Beach (California) library on April 21, 1995, former Army intelligence specialist Vance Davis confided that during his tenure at the NSA and the 701st MI BDE, Augsburg, Germany, he rarely heard the term 'UFO' used. A more common acronym in use, according to Davis, was 'AVC' which stands for Alien Visitation Craft.
It stands to reason that if the intelligence community knows as much about the phenomenon as many believe they do, then 'UFO' would be an inappropriate label for a known object.
Davis also suggested--somewhat forcefully--that the ufological community should make a detailed study of the military's recently declassified aerial surveillance photographs from the cold war era. Considering that Davis worked in satellite intelligence while at the NSA, the poignancy of this "suggestion" should not be underestimated.
Davis's new book, "Unbroken Promises," has just been released. It details the trials and tribulations of the so-called "Gulf Breeze Six." It is a much needed clarification to their saga, which was grossly misrepresented in the mainstream media.
