The new book by investigative journalist and author Leslie Kean has received an incredible amount of media attention in just a short period of time. The book, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record, contains first-person accounts from credible witnesses like officials from NASA, the FAA, and state and federal governments. John Podesta, former Clinton Chief of Staff, contributed the book’s foreword, adding even more credibility to the book.

Despite only being on the shelves for a couple of weeks, the book has received extremely broad coverage from the media, including MSNBC, The Huffington Post, Technorati, and NPR. Leslie Kean was also invited on The Colbert Report last night to discuss her book.

During her appearance on The Colbert Report, Kean brought up the Chicago O’Hare UFO incident from 2006, in which a UFO was spotted by airport and airline employees. Witnesses described the hovering object as saucer-shaped and metallic. After hovering for a couple minutes, the UFO shot straight up, punching a hole in the clouds as it disappeared.

Stephen Colbert, the host of The Colbert Report, claimed that he has never heard about the O’Hare UFO incident. It is surprising that a journalist/news reporter could miss a major story that was covered by NPR, Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and others. This story remains the most popular story in the history of ChicagoTribune.com. The History Channel’s UFO Hunters even did a special entitled “UFOs at the Airport,” in which they recreated the O’Hare incident.

Since Kean’s appearance on The Colbert Show, Google has noticed a spike in the volume of people searching for information about the O’Hare UFO incident.

Leslie Kean’s book was also mentioned by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku yesterday on MSNBC’s The Dylan Ratigan Show.

    I have had this book on preorder at Amazon for months and have received and read it before it was officially published. After having researched, studied and read extensively about UFOs for at least 45 years, this book is by far the most important, well documented and official (in my opinion) book ever to be published. I think and very much hope that this will be the icebreaker that will finally open the eyes of the uninformed public and will break the silence of the scientific and governmental commumity who have known the truth of this subject for at least 50 years. I have followed Leslie Kean’s work for many, many years and am thrilled that she is the person who has written The Definitive Book on UFOs and that her work has been so well received by major media AT LAST! Bravo, Leslie, Bravo!!!
