McNamara Dismissed UFOs

Former U.S. Secretary of Defense (under LBJ) Robert S. McNamara died this week. It's worth noting, aside from his problems during the Vietnam conflict, that he was asked about the UFO issue in March of 1966 while testifying during closed congressional sessions on a foreign aid bill. A few weeks later, after the proceedings were declassified, the public learned that McNamara thought there was nothing significant about the UFO subject and that photos of UFOs were "illusions." Well, so he said. One suspects there may have been more than a few military and airline pilots and radar observers who strongly disagree.
