I understand (and concur with) the second sentence here.  The
first, as I understand it, makes no sense -- unless Taylor is
holding Allen Hynek to the views he held in 1957, which is both
misleading and unfair.

In The UFO Experience (pp. 123ff.) Hynek discusses the Levelland
events, in effect apologizes for his own failings then, and has
many critical words to say about the Blue Book "investigation.".
