The book includes a foreword by John

Kean is an independent investigative
journalist who has been published
nationally and internationally in the
Boston Globe, Philadelphia Inquirer, Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Providence Journal, International
Herald Tribune, Globe and Mail, Sydney Morning Herald, The Nation, and The Journal for Scientific
Exploration, among other publications. She is coauthor of Burma’s Revolution of the Spirit: The Struggle
for Democratic Freedom and Dignity and was also a producer and on-air host for a daily investigative
news program on KPFA radio, a Pacifica station.
Kean began publishing on the UFO subject in 2000, when her feature story about the French COMETA
Report appeared in the Boston Globe. In 2002, she co-founded the Coalition for Freedom of Information
(CFI), an independent alliance advocating for greater government openness on information about UFOs
and for responsible coverage by the media based on a rational and credible approach.
As director of the CFI, she began working on the Kecksburg UFO case in 2002, with the cooperation of
Stan Gordon. Kean was the plaintiff in a successful, four-year Freedom of Information Act federal lawsuit
against NASA, in which the agency was required to release hundreds of documents under court
supervision. She and her coalition have launched an ongoing initiative to affect US government policy so
that scientists and aviation authorities can gain greater understanding of the still-unexplained UFO
phenomenon.
Kean was a producer for the 2009 independent documentary I Know What I Saw directed by James Fox,
and is currently working with Break Thru Films, an award-winning film company, on a new feature
documentary.
