Previously, I had written this regarding Santilli's "lack of
knowledge" about Roswell and the AA footage:

>>He'll never admit anything when there's money to be made.

Gildas responds:

>Apparently, you have an answer to everything.

My reply:

The whole purpose of debate is to arrive at answers to
complicated issues. Granted, my answers are speculative in
nature. Unfortunately, Santilli puts us the arena of speculation
and holds us hostage there by his refusal to cooperate with a
real AA investigation. Do I have a all the answers? How could I?
How could anyone? This is just my opinion based on something
that I do for a living; producing and directing entertainment.
And lets make no mistake here; AA is nothing but entertainment
at this point. Santilli, himself, prevents it from entering the
realm of science.

Gildas,

You say:

>[Santilli] knew nothing about the Roswell case...

as if it's a proven fact. There is no proof for this at all;
only his word. So, if Santilli's word that he knew nothing about
Roswell is good enough to pass as truth, then why don't you
believe his word that the AA film is real? Each position has the
same lack of proof to support it.

I truly mean no disrespect, but it would seem to me that you are
being conveniently selective about which of his statements you
hold to be true. Personally, I don't think one can base a theory
on the notion that "sometimes he tells the truth" when we have
no proof, or even supporting evidence, that he has EVER told the
truth regarding AA.

I say this because Santilli has yet to come up with anything to
support his dubious claims, even if it would help his position.
In fact, he has actually done just the opposite. He won't
release the original film for inspection and he won't let the
cameraman talk to anyone directly. Does this sound like the type
of person that is anxious to be vindicated within the UFO
community?

Finally, you wrote:

>Sometime, the wind is going to blow and , as we
>say in French: "Ca va d=E9coiffer".

Agreed. Unfortunately, we've been down-wind from Santilli for
too long. <G>

Take care,

Roger Evans
