>I happen to like the guy but that's irrelevant and this is an

COMMENT: Brit and Lee Elders have told me they spent quite a bit
of time in Mexico city interviewing people. She sent me brief
comments on the testimony of about a dozen, I believe. However, I
have not been able to get full testimony. Nor have I gotten a map
showing the locations and reasonably sighting directions of these

I'm afraid that we are heading toward an unending state of
confusion on this case. If we never get to the cameraman and his
camera the video will have to be considered separate from any
testimony. And, yes, where are these hundred witnesses?
