Biography[edit]

Born as Linda Naylor, Bruni trained as a private investigator and subsequently became an investigative journalist in the 1980s. She specialized in the researching and reporting on cults and the paranormal.

The book was a study of Britain’s most famous UFO case, the Rendlesham Forest incident of December 1980. After its publication she worked with Admiral of the Fleet Lord Peter Hill-Norton, who asked questions in the House of Lords regarding the case. [3].

Written Works[edit]

You Can't Tell the People[edit]

'You Can't Tell The Peopl' is a book on Britain’s most famous UFO case, the Rendlesham Forest Incident. It was published in hardback by Sidgwick & Jackson in November 2000,[5] and in paperback by Pan Macmillan in November 2001. The title comes from a quotation by Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister at the time of the events, who told the author in 1997: "UFOs! You must get your facts right and you can't tell the people".[6]

In the height of the Cold War, RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge in Suffolk, England, was leased to the United States Air Force (USAF), serving as a twin NATO military installation. During Christmas week 1980 several UFOs were seen near the Woodbridge base. Numerous air force personnel witnessed these events, including senior officers. An official memorandum was sent to the Ministry of Defence by the deputy base commander, Lt Colonel Charles Halt. In 1983 an American research group obtained a copy of the memorandum through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which sparked off public interest in the case. You Can't Tell The People produces new information on the incident:

A covering letter (which supported the memorandum) written by Squadron Leader Donald Moreland, the then British liaison officer at the USAF installation, and addressed to the MOD, which is titled “Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOS)”. This is supported with an exclusive interview with Moreland.

The book examines and re-interprets the official witness statements [7] taken at the time of the initial incident.

Intricate drawings of the UFOs and the landing sites that the witnesses made following the incident in 1980.

USAF photographs taken the morning after the initial incident which show a British police officer and a USAF officer examining three ground indentations [8], each with a marker. Enlargements of the photographs depict indentations of what are alleged to be the UFO’s landing marks.

You Can't Tell The People also confirms that Halt’s memorandum[9], albeit a valuable piece of evidence, depicts the wrong times and dates of the events.

Bruni also located a firsthand copy of an original audio tape recording [10] of the second major event that involved Lt Colonel Halt. A bad copy of this tape was leaked to researchers in 1984, but witnesses claimed it was edited. The tape revealed vital new information.

You Can't Tell The People presents an interview with a former NCO who was in charge of the telecommunications at the time of the incident. The interview reveals that the communication lines were blocked with “Flash” calls, which were only ever used in dire emergencies.

A local civilian witness speaks out about his encounter with one of the UFOs and tells how four of his USAF friends were called back to the base on a “Red Alert”. The witness also described what one of his friends had told him about the incident in the forest, which involved alien entities repairing a space ship. He never saw any of his friends again.

You Can't Tell The People also produces interviews with the former AFOSI deputy commander and his wife who also witnessed the UFO.

Bruni has interviewed more than one hundred people. Many of those who were involved in the events have never talked before, including Major General Gordon Williams, the commander of the installations; several high-ranking officers; NCOs and regular airmen; police and MOD employees and civilians.

After the release of the Ministry of Defense files on the case in early 2001, a revised paperback version of the book was published in November 2001.
