I was not even discussing the testimonies on strange debris. My
argument is much more simple: The Roswell base said in 1947 that
they had discovered a "flying disk". In 1994 and 1995, the Air
Force explained that they had discovered in fact a Mogul balloon
train, which included several radar targets mounted on balsa
wood sticks. I repeat that not even Laurel and Hardy would have
seen them as part of a flying saucer. It's that simple.

In addition to that, Sheridan Cavitt, who had spent a day with
Marcel at the debris field, denied, in his interview by Col.
Weaver, having found such a Mogul balloon train.

Another point: the launching of the Mogul 4 balloon  train, the
only one supposed to have radar targets, had been cancelled, as
stated by Crary in his diary.

Forget about the Mogul balloon train!
