While your questions are valid ones, I don't think you had to
wait for Philip's withdrawal from active research to ask them..
Unfortunately, the questions also seem to assume information
that (in a legal sense) has not been submitted into evidence.

I have seen no evidence that Philip's involvement in this was
anything more than he has acknowledged from the beginning.. His
position at the time with BUFORA would make him a natural
contact as far as Santilli was concerned. Since many in UFOlogy
are willing to accept the validity of evidence until proven
otherwise, his reaction to (and involvement with) Santilli in
this matter was certainly not all that unusual. It's important
to keep in mind that Philip is the one who has submitted some of
the most damning evidence during the past few weeks.

Philip can answer the questions you pose if he feels the need,
but I see no reason to imply improper conduct without more than
speculation to go on.
