I will never forget the scene I have assisted at the 3rd San
Marino congress in 1995. It was Saturday 20 May. You gave your
lecture about the Santilli's footage at 12:00. After the lecture
of Susan Karaban I went to lunch to the Grand Hotel. After the
lunch I saw some people and gendarmes in the lobby of the hotel;
what's going on I asked them? You and Chris Cary (a Santilli
associate) were going to show some slides from the movie! It was
a surrealistic scene: the gendarmes were there to frisk us.
There was also a female gendarme for the women. All cameras were
forbidden. I thought "If the footage is a hoax, these gendarmes
are participating in a fraud"! It was 3:15 p.m. when you and
Cary began the show. There were about 30 people in attendance.
Later, there was a second show at the congress place (Teatro
Titano) on 7:30 p.m. with more people.

Now that you are going to resign from ufology, can you say us at
last what was your real involvement in this "Roswell autopsy"
story? Why have you accepted to help Ray Santilli to put in
touch with the ufological milieu? Have you received money from
him? How much?

I think that many list members would be interested in your

Thank you in advance.
