Dear Mr. Spielberg: 

Your extraordinary film Schindlerís List premiered in Frankfort Germany in March of 1993.  Then, in 1994 you established the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation with a mission to videotape and preserve the testimonies of Holocaust survivors and witnesses. 

The impact of your movie on society was varied and powerful.  A rarely mentioned example: throughout the 1980ís an effort to debunk the historical truth of the Shoah began to receive increasing publicity.   Schindlerís List essentially drove a stake through the heart of this burgeoning Holocaust denial movement.   

In the same month your movie premiered, Laurance Rockefellerís attorney, Henry Diamond faxed a memorandum to John H. Gibbons, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, requesting a meeting to discuss Rockefellerís planned approach to President Clinton on the matter of unidentified flying objects and extraterrestrial life.  Thus began the three-year effort by a notable American to end the government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence.  That initiative failed amidst the turmoil of the Presidential scandals. 

Nearly ten years later you are about to launch a major new project, Taken.   It premiers on the SCI FI Channel on December 2 and is accompanied by multiple showings of related documentaries, the most important being Abduction Diaries. 

And so it is you are about to present a 20-hour miniseries that will raise the awareness worldwide of the entire spectrum of UFO/ET events and evidence, while at the same time videotaping the testimonies of abductees who have experienced encounters with extraterrestrials.   These projects have the potential to drive a stake through the heart of the UFO/ET phenomena debunking movement Ė the truth embargo. 

Because of the quality and nature of your films, you have become far more than a successful entertainment professional.  You are one of the most admired men in the world.  What you do and believe matters. 

Only one action remains to complete the compelling parallel nature of these projects ten years apart.  It has long been rumored you are convinced of an extraterrestrial presence manifest about the planet.   Thousands of good people have worked for decades to bring this truth to the American people.   As you did in 1994, once again we need you to come forward and stand personally for what you believe.
