Not my intention to be in anyway offending, but I find hard to
swallow the fact that yourself and a couple of experts have been
in the knowing of some decisive new data on the Mexico video and
that the facts become public in such an indirect (and perhaps
lucky) manner.

Especially when you said yourself in concluding your November
1997 analysis of the Mexico video:


I can't understand why nobody triggered a red flag at the time
(more than a month ago!?).

How can this be possible since this looks like definitive
evidence  And can this...

> pending analysis of a
>guaranteed fake for comparison

justify holding off on the evidence. If you can't reproduce a
fake then it's not a fake

My mind is a blank.
