Hi, Gary and list,

Having followed the Maury Island hoax pretty carefully (see the
account in the forthcoming UFO Encyclopedia, second edition), I
wonder what is the source for the assertion that "Crisman worked
for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency."  Crisman was a con man
and a liar who made many false claims -- just like, in fact, the
even more notorious Jim Garrison.
