Unidentified Flying Osamas

So…UFO’s are flown by terrorists?
A healthy skepticism about extraterrestrial space travelers leads people to disregard U.F.O. sightings without a moment’s thought. But in the United States, this translates into overdependence on radar data and indifference to all kinds of unidentified aircraft — a weakness that could be exploited by terrorists or anyone seeking to engage in espionage against the United States.
Read the whole thing anyway. Yes, there is something to be studied in UFOs. We should not ignore them. But why throw in a gratuitous terrorist reference? Maybe that’s how you get a UFO opinion piece into the New York Times?
