B i o

Bernard Thouanel was born in France in 1958. During the summer of 1998, François Siegel and Bernard Thouanel were brought into contact with a member of the COMETA group, an advisor and consultant with the French Ministry of Research (Gilbert Payan) and who had incidently written two articles in the magazine. Gilbert Payan unveiled the existence of a report prepared by a special working group attached to THE (Institute of High Studies for the National Defense) including Top Brass members and high rank military officers... After analyzing some excerpts from the preliminary report. Bernard Thouanel convinced his publisher F. Siegel to reproduce parts of this outstanding white paper document given to the French President Jacques Chirac and the Prime Minister Lionel Jospin. Finally, after a long brainstorming, the COMETA group accepted the publication offer and proposed to publish the full report in the form of a magazine. It was sold out after 50 000 copies distributed in July 1999, within days in bookstores. From the year 2002, B. Thouanel moved and settled for good in Los Angeles (California), since he is working presently as a free lance journalist and photographer in aviation, defense, high tech and also science fiction.
