Thank you, Stan, I think you mean that.

Stan, have you become a member of the government's cover-up?
Surely Corso could have had an unclassified involvement with the
NSC, and a highly-classified part not reflected in the merely
top-secret stuff, in much the same way that Twining, in
reporting to his superiors, lied about not having any crashed
saucers in the possession of the Air Force. Hell, if Twining
would lie to his superiors as you and Randle allege, why
wouldn't the NSC lie to other members of the NSC, and doctor the
official records to conceal Corso's super-duper,
tippy-top-secret duties with the NSC? They wouldn't even have to
doctor the records, but just keep the super-duper-secret stuff
out of the hands of the Eisenhower Library. Absence of evidence
is not evidence of absence. If it's good enough for MJ-12, then,
dammit, it's good enough for Corso too.

Irrelevant. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

I'm certain that, like the mythical MJ-12, Corso's _real_ duties
with the NSC were _so_ tippy-top-secret that you aren't going
to find them among the merely top-secret holdings of the NSC.
You're gonna have to peek at the SCI and ESI stuff -- but we all
know MJ-12 will never let that happen, although I'm certain
there are members of the current MJ-12 who really want the truth
to come out - you know, the guys who helped you and Bill Moore
out by furnishing all those Top Secret/Majic documents.

I shudder to think what nefarious activities Corso was involved
in that the NSC and MJ-12 feel they must hide the details of his
_true_ involvement with the NSC. I think we have a second Cosmic
Watergate here. Maybe Corso was deeply involved officially with
crashed saucers a lot earlier than he led us to believe in his
book. I understand he imparted startling information to his son
just prior to his death. Maybe he even had records to support
his statements, and perhaps his son will release them in the
not-too-distant future.

Besides, not _all_ NSC records were transferred to the
Eisenhower Library. Maybe the records detailing Corso's _real_,
super-duper, tippy-top-secret duties are still held by the NSC.
If I were you, I'd file a FOIA with the NSC. And, if necessary,
you can take it all the way to the Supreme Court, just like you
did with the CAUS lawsuit against the NSA. If anybody can do it,
you can. I have faith in you, and I know you won't let me down.

Ahhh, that's what they _want_ you to believe. And they probably
have withheld only those records dealing with MJ-12 and Corso's
tippy-top-secret NSC duties, which are not reflected in the
merely top-secret records. Surely they must consider Corso _as_
important as your "ground breaking" research into the MJ-12

Be careful with your wording there, Stan. Don't claim that I
ever claimed anything about pica or elite type, as might be
assumed from your (deliberately?) poorly worded sentence.

You keep rubbing Klass' nose in this as though his stupid bet
somehow makes Roswell and MJ-12 true. Must be some of that
superior logic you employ.

What's the matter, Stan? Why didn't you include your address
where your $16,000 report can be purchased?

I never denied that some newspapers said "last week." And
insofar as the source of the balloon debris is concerned, it
really doesn't matter if Brazil found it on June 14th or later.
The "MOGUL disinformation explanation" doesn't depend on the
date when Brazil found the debris.

It's as much selective choice of data for you as you claim it
is for me.

Remember, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. You
just gotta keep looking, Stan. Trust me. Corso's secret
involvement with the NSC is every bit as important to ufology as
your MJ-12 is.

Long live Roswell!
