If Dennis was wearing a very distinctive red shirt and bergundy
jacket (Dennis, were you?) then this is the one. The version
that aired here in the UK will have looked very different to the
US version. My interview - which formed a major part of the UK
program - and Ray Santilli's were only recorded on March 26, so
wouldn't have featured in the US version at all.

And the response has been predictable. Quotes from emails I
received following the program included "you are a
disinformationist" and "to me this so-called documentary was
made by the NSA or DoD". For the record, I wasn't consultant on
this program and had zero influence on the line it took. I do a
lot of media work, most of which is totally unrelated to UFOs.
The other day I arranged and participated in a debate on 9/11 on
TalkSport, where I took on the conspiracy theorists and dared to
suggest that the only 9/11 conspiracy was perpetrated by Al
Qaeda, and not the US Government. Subsequent comments made about
the program included "complete uneducated twit" and "showing his
true Ministry of Defense Zionist colors... how much are they
paying him".


Best wishes,
