Greer is to be commended for collecting many witnesses and
organizing their pub lic testimony. WHere he is faulted is:

(a) some witness testimony would not stand up under diligent
congressional investigation (better vetting needed)

(b) claiming that the government is covering up anti-gravity and
space based weapons when there is, in fact, no confirmable
evidence that either exist ( I am, in particular, aware of the
SDI plans for space based weapons.... which were never produced
and are still on the "drawing boards"; the needed technology is
still being developed, albeit at a slower pace than 5 years ago,
and the new technologies still have to be "space qualified"
before they are used; I guess maybe 10 years to the first space
based laser, assuming the decision is made to go forward with it
in the next couple of years)

(c) making (b) part of a political agenda not directly related
to the UFO problem.

Greer can not be faulted for the lack of press interest in the
witness testimony from his last public disclosure forum. The
fault lies here with the press and the 'self-cover up' - this
subject has so many ramifications that "no one" wants to
consider it seriously. Members of the press, in particular,
would ignore it rather than get tied up in a big dispute over
UFO reality without absolute hard proof-- hardware and bodies.
