Aloha Dr. Salla,

You are relying on proven liars and frauds for "whistleblowers".

I want to inform you that when the Bennewitz story first started
to come out,  I and other researchers went to Dulce Canyon,
interviewed Gabe Valdez, and physically searched Dulce Canyon.

Other researchers continually combed that area for several years
afterward. No underground facilities were ever found. I don't
believe there has ever been any truth to an underground facility
(let alone a mythical alien/military laboratory) existing at
Dulce.

Dr. Salla, you seem to be someone who listens but does not hear
or understand anything told to you except wild unproven tales.

You are living in fantasy land and your reputation in the UFO
field is as low as that of your phony "whistleblowers". You are
going nowhere with your misguided efforts. I am glad we live on
separate islands of Hawaii.


Josh Goldstein
