dragged the Roswell "saucer" to (five years after its crash). The reason the military hides what’s going on in Area 51 and for several UFO reports involving experimental aircraft is that it is a national security issue. As per the BBC news , "is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces" (BBC, 1). Some Navy footage from 2004 and 2015 was authorized for release to a drone database project, intended to be shared only with other government agencies. Instead, the videos were made public. Now, the Navy has no idea what was caught by the upgraded thermal tracking system aboard the aircraft. It could be drones from a rival nation spying on the Navy; it could be an alien spaceship, or more likely, it could have been a glitch in the new system. The United States does not necessarily advertise that they were unable to catch a rival nations drone, claiming alien contact when it never actually makes contact and confirms itself to be alien and admitting flaws in our tracking systems that our enemies could try to exploit. Some of the Americans hold mixed or hybrid views. They envision a more nuanced and heterogeneous government, a body in conflict, in which some factions are motivated by idealism and humanitarian concern, even to the point of anticipating a time when disclosure might occur, and, in a kind of eschatological unveiling, making the public aware of the secrets of Area 51 ( Cuevas 115). Struggling against these good people are factions motivated by selfishness, greed, ambition, pride, etc. They want to keep the knowledge to themselves, since knowledge is power, and they want it all. These views are transparently religious: the government entities possessing secret knowledge are understood in terms of the war of Good and Evil, and Disclosure is projected as a secular form of epiphany or revelation or hierophany.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
