They Came for the Cheese
Then say "bonjour" to France's National Space Studies Center (CNES), which has decided to put statements and documents related to 1,600 UFO (Unidentified French Object?) sightings from the past 30 years online.
But the French X-Files database, which is set to go live later this month or in February, according to Reuters, will exclude the names of the people who reported seeing les petits hommes verts.
The decision to keep the reports anonymous is to protect the privacy of those who had the close encounters, says a CNES official.
More likely it's to protect them from any EFOs (Easily-identified Flying Objects) that would likely be hurled at them in the streets.
