Having witnessed your problems of comprehension over supersonic
balloons that no one claimed existed, not to mention your
confusing the dates on which they did not fly, I guess this
should come as no surprise. But it's still wrong, because I'm not
trying to explain away the radar images as the result of
mistuning. Your attribution of bogusness is itself bogus. I *am*
saying that that possibility needs to be eliminated before you
can get anywhere near being sure that what appeared on the radar
screens was an actual object.

Even supposing I had attempted to dismiss the radar data as the
product of mistuning, for mistuned radar - or even miscalibrated
radar - to enter your Hall of Fame, you surely need to be certain
that the F-16s' radar was neither. Have you established that
beyond doubt? Has anyone? And if so, how? It's something I'd like
to tick off my own list.

You've still to show that what appeared on radar was actually out
there in the sky, too, of course. But as long as you decline to
do a little background reading on radar when it's offered you, I
guess you won't find that too difficult.

Incidentally, can you give me an instance of Menzel proving
himself a liar? Note, I do not express an opinion on this. I'm
just curious to know how you arrived at your own.
