Default Advanced propulsion technology? Or BS?

Bernie Sanders is promising to declassify the government's UFO files:

"Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) pledged in an interview released Tuesday that he
will tell the American public anything he learns about aliens or UFOs if elected
president next year."

But I wonder if he'd have any better luck than Barry Goldwater did:

"Former presidential candidate and Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater tried, on
multiple occasions in the late 1960’s and 70’s, to gain access to certain areas
of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base but was denied access where, he alleged, the
Air Force was hiding evidence regarding flying saucers.

“I think the government does know [about UFOs]," Goldwater said in a 1994 radio
interview. "I can’t back that up, but I think that at Wright-Patterson field, if
you could get into a certain place, you’d find out what the Air Force and the
government knows about UFOs.”

“I called Curtis LeMay [Goldwater's running mate and former Air Force General]
and I said, ‘General, I know we have a room at Wright-Patterson where you put
all this secret stuff. Could I go in there?’ I’ve never heard him get mad, but
he got madder than hell at me, cussed me out, and said, ‘Don’t ever ask me that
question again!’”"
