This week, the British government admitted that it attempted to cover up the 1980 sighting of an unidentified flying object by a U.S. Air Force officer in eastern England's Rendlesham Forest. For British UFO buffs, Rendlesham holds the same kind of mystique that Roswell, N.M., does for Americans. Neal Conan speaks to David Clarke, a professor at England's Sheffield University, who was involved in the successful campaign to release the documents. The documents are available online at FlyingSaucery.com.
