While copies of the photos are apparently available for those who
wish to order them, I surprised that we have no one on the list
close enough to the University of Texas at Arlington to visit the
school and see if this is worth getting excited over.
Unfortunately, I live too far from the scene or I'd try to get to
the exhibit myself.

As I read his description, it seems that Bond has seen something
in the photos that he does not readily recall from his 1947
involvement.  His position on this seems to have waffled through
the years, but the alleged evidence here are the photos and not
Bond's recollection of the events.

If there are symbols, and they can be identified, I would suspect
that it wouldn't be too difficult to track down a supplier
(assuming that they are man-made symbols).  Most major
manufacturers have records of their products that go back to
their beginnings, and most scientific endeavors keep copious
records to make sure that every aspect of their experiments can
be recreated.

I don't really believe these images can be compared to the AA
"film" or MJ-12, however.  The provenance of these negatives and
images is well known, and I've seen no credible criticism of
their authenticity.  On the other hand, there could be debate
over the effects of digital enhancement, which we've yet to learn
the details of.

Charles Moore is, unfortunately, no longer a disinterested
bystander in this debate.  He has joined the Roswell ranks as an
author who now has a contention to defend.  Again, if I recall
correctly, Moore had been contacted by UFO researchers in the
80's and he indicated at the time that he felt there was no way
that the classified MOGUL project could have been related to the
crash at Roswell.  However, his stance change after being
contacted by the Air Force as they prepared their 1994 report.
Since then he has become a major proponent of the MOGUL
explanation, and has spoken at numerous events to share his
"truth", which requires a number of speculative assumptions based
on limited hard evidence.  In an effort to help promote the MOGUL
explanation,  Jesse Marcel Jr. was contacted and asked to come
look at the remains of a MOGUL balloon (which I believe Moore
uses in his "dog and pony show") as well as some material that
had been "aged" in the desert.  Marcel was emphatic that the
material he saw did not resemble the items (or material) he
remembers seeing in his kitchen as a boy.

I would agree that these images will not end the debate, and
skeptics will use the images to their advantage as best they can.
I have to assume that if they had shown something truly
un-earthly after their enhancement, we'd have been hearing more
about it in the mainstream press.
