"I Forbade Any Talk Of UFOs Or Flying Saucers"
--Gerardo Clemente Vega Garcia, Mexican Secretary of Defense

In a phone interview, Gerardo Clemente Vega Garcia, Mexican
Secretary of Defense, discussed the UFO sighting; "We track
furtive aircraft that could be the source of drug trafficiking.
This area is well-known in this regard. Only two days ago we
captured a small plane with over a thousand kilos of cocaine.
Our aircraft is the same one that locates such illegal traffic
and guides other air elements to enable their capture"

"I receive daily information on whta happens with these flights
throughout the Republic. This [the photo evidence] was sent in
for analysis, has no explanation, and I would like to caution
that we never spoke of UFOs or saucers or anything, only the
sighting of some very strange contacts that were
incomprehensible in this situation, given that there was nothing
at all flying in the air at the time, according to the Ciudad
del Carmen Airport. The devices record accurately a series of
luminous contacts"

"This was brought to the Secretariat of Defense. We analyzed it
with pilots, technical people on our staff, and we reached the
conclusion that there were two possibilities: we could file it
as a routine matter pending further analysis, or we could give
it to a person who knew about these things, whom we know is
Jaime Maussan. He came over, he was shown the video, he saw this
(sic) and it was given to him for use in his projects and to be
broadcast as he saw fit, without alarming anyone, since as you
can see it is already being said that its a distraction from
current affairs. That is not my purpose, nor do I as a military
man engage in such activities. I forbade any talk of UFOs or
flying saucers, since that gives rise to doubts and gossip. I
will not engage in such matters"
