"Secretive parts of the secret government"? Dude, now that's SECRET.
I did find it interesting that, apparently, after more than 20 years of computer use being a standard part of federal employees' jobs, some are still leaving their passwords on the default. Like "PASSWORD."
However, two things in the interview were so weird as to be laughable. He said he was able to see the hidden NASA photograph of a UFO in Earth orbit only when he turned the "colour down to 4bit colour and the screen resolution really, really low, and even then the picture was still juddering as it came onto the screen." I think a photo of my grandma's Buick would look like Emperor Gvarg's Intergalactic Flagship under those conditions.
Then there was this reason he didn't get save this photo onto his computer:
SK: You were actually cut off the time you were downloading the picture?
GM: Yes, I saw the guy's hand move across.
Eh? Like a guy yanked the photograph out of the computer?
P.S. Here is his description of what he saw: "It was above the Earth's hemisphere. It kind of looked like a satellite. It was cigar-shaped and had geodesic domes above, below, to the left, the right and both ends of it, and although it was a low-resolution picture it was very close up.
This thing was hanging in space, the earth's hemisphere visible below it, and no rivets, no seams, none of the stuff associated with normal man-made manufacturing."
