UFO Sweden Disconnects Vallee's "Anatomy"!
by Joe Rosenberger

In another apparent defeat for the once respected UFOlogist,
Jacques Vallee's much lauded Anatomy Of A Hoax recieved an
additional blow recently as UFO Sweden, the Swedish UFO research
group, disconnected their link to the abstract of the now
discredited work. Formerly located at
http://www.algonet.se/~ufo/philadelphia_exp.html the Swedish UFO
web page now has the link indicated at
http://www.algonet.se/~ufo/english/philadelphia_exp.html when
you place your curser at the "Philadelphia Experiment:50 Years
Later" statement located still at the center of their web page
at http://www.algonet.se/~ufo/english.html . Now, when you click
on it a big "File Not Found" appears with the statement "The
requested URL /~ufo/english/philadelphia_exp.html was not found
on this server." which is similar for the other disconnected
link for the Anatomy abstract.

This is the second web site that has now reacted to the news,
first reported by this service, that the article intended to
prove that the popular Philadelphia Experiment legend was a
hoax, was itself a hoax. Jeff Rense of Sightings On The Radio
was the first to react when, upon reading our initial story, he
immediately requested permision to post our article at his web
site for his version of the Vallee fraud as a rebuttal.
ParaNet's Michael Corbin, who has no web page for it but who had
endorsed the article as "good research" (this can be seen at a
separate location http://www.geocities.com/Area51/7354/Hoax.txt )
was the second to react, with a diatribe of unsubstantiated
accusations and personal attacks against this service and the
investigator who brought us the story with extensive web links
to evidence discrediting it, Marshall Barnes. Corbin's reaction
was an obvious attempt at saving face in view of the fact that
it was Jacques Vallee himself that personally gave the ParaNet
President and so-called " nvestigator", direct permission to
distribute the flawed and fraudulent work across various
internet newsgroups.

In an angry counter-attack, Barnes has issued a bold, direct
challenge through this service to Corbin, who had refered to
Barnes as a "rank amateur sleuth with an axe to grind", by
challenging Corbin to produce Jacques Vallee, Bernhard Haisch,
Edward Dudgeon and William Moore and Barnes on Corbin's radio
show where they would all be sworn under oath with "the
penalties for perjury in effect" to debate the issue once and
for all. Barnes indicated that prior to his appearance he would
send Corbin extensive documentation and audio recordings as
evidence that he would be telling the truth and that Corbin
could in fact indicate as much to his listening audience. As of
this time, two days later, there has been no response from
Corbin to Barnes' challenge. Nor has Corbin responded to the
rebuttal to his accusations from this news service's publisher,
Jack Hudson's. In the wake of UFO Sweden's apparent distancing
themselves from what is now a Vallee debacle, it is clearer than
ever that Corbin's behavior was not th t of a man defending an
article unjustly accused, but that of a man betrayed by another,
whom he had trusted.
