Subject: Col. Corso & Hoax Photograph


I know that we have debated the reality of his work a
number of times, but I just found something that I think
is quite disturbing. In the photo section of the book, he
has reproduced a number of fairly well know UFO
pictures (which makes me ask why he couldn't come
up with something we haven't seen before).  The caption
at the beginning says, "Lt. Col. Corso was never able
to confirm the veracity of the following purported
UFO surveillance photos, which were in Army
Intelligence files as support material for the R&D
project to harvest the Roswell alien technology for
military purposes."

The very first picture is a a Ford hubcap and has been
identified as such from the middle 1950s.  The
photographer, Guy B. Marquand, Jr., of Riverside, CA.
admitted it was a hoax.

Now the question that bothers me about this is how
could the "guy on the inside," that is, Corso, not
know this was a hoax when everyone elses knows
it was a hoax.

And before you argue that it might be real, wouldn't
the "guy on the inside" have been aware of the
controversy. I mean, he is supposed to know all this
stuff that the rest of us didn't know.

Just thought I'd mention it.
