From: "true.x-file. news" <firstname.lastname@example.org> [Jack Husdon] Date: Wed, 10 Jun 1998 17:38:34 -0700 Fwd Date: Thu, 11 Jun 1998 20:34:16 -0400 Subject: UFO Sweden Disconnects Vallee'S "Anatomy"! --- "If The Truth Is Out There...We'll Find It!" June 10, 1998 For Immediate Release: 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.
