Merrill Cook

Merrill Cook says he’s skeptical, but open-minded about unidentified flying objects.

     Washington • Like most Americans, former Rep. Merrill Cook, R-Utah doesn’t believe aliens have made contact with Earth, but he promises to keep an open mind as he participates in 30 hours of testimony in a mock hearing later this month.

The "Citizen Hearing on Disclosure" is organized and funded by the Paradigm Research Group, which insists the governments of the United States and other countries are hiding the truth.

"There are extraterrestrials here and the U.S. government’s policy since the ’40s has been not to acknowledge this," said Stephen Bassett, who asked Cook and four other former members of Congress to participate in the five-day pseudo-hearing at the National Press Club starting April 29.

"I simply want them to conduct themselves as if they were sitting in Congress and conduct a hearing that the Congress won’t hold," he said.

Cook says he can do that, but don’t expect him to become a believer just because Paradigm is paying him and taking care of travel expenses for him and his wife. . . .
