Hold on a minute. First the San Francisco Examiner reports this upcoming meeting, seriously as opposed to tongue-in-cheek, now they report that a government/NASA agent has been calling "Silicon Valley sources" _and_ the Examiner asking questions?!! What's wrong with this picture? Since when do "Special Agents" go around asking questions _and_ stating their alleged position with the government and/or NASA?! When I first read this article (and thanks to Stig for sharing this with us!), I immediately wondered, "Well, how did the Examiner find this out? Did someone with Firmage's team call the Examiner and tell them? Why would they want this information spread? Could it be some kind of advertisement campaign for this meeting?" Sure makes this meeting sound important. So I re-read the article and noted that the alleged "agent" is indicated as calling the Examiner as well as "Silicon Valley sources" (no identification given for these alleged "sources"). Now why would someone claiming to be with the government/NASA call a *newspaper*, _identify himself_ and ask a bunch of questions about a meeting to discuss UFOs? Are we to believe the "agent" believed the Examiner would keep it's mouth shut and not tell anyone or is this some kind of new "open" policy on the part of NASA and our government? I study behavior. These behaviors are _not_ normal for newspapers, NASA or the US government. Red flags going up. Could someone have gotten the facts mixed up resulting in a more "sensationalized" story - accidently, of course? Did the Examiner verify that this "Special Agent" who called them was, in fact, "an investigator with the Long Beach branch of NASA's Office of Inspector General"? And, still I wonder, _why_ would any "government" agency call a newspaper and other "Silicon Valley sources", identifying himself and his job title, and ask a bunch of questions - as if they didn't already know the answers? Does not make sense. Something ain't right with this picture. Anyone smell fish? Amy Home Page: "http://TheVanguard.tripod.com"
