"Back in those glory days, I was very uncomfortable
when they asked us to say things we didn't want to say and deny other things.
Some people asked, you know, were you alone out there? We never gave the
real answer, and yet we see things out there, strange things, but we know
what we saw out there. And we couldn't really say anything. The bosses were
really afraid of this, they were afraid of the War of the Worlds type stuff,
and about panic in the streets. So we had to keep quiet. And now we only
see these things in our nightmares or maybe in the movies, and some of them
are pretty close to being the truth."
