Hi Steven,

Unfortunately I was on a tight deadline to get the Symposium
Proceedings published in time for the conference. I did offer
Barry an opportunity to follow up with an article in the MUFON

I believe the point of contention between Brad and Barry is
motive - Brad leans towards an official AFOSI disinformation
campaign and Barry believes the perpetrators were motivated by
money. From my point of view, the important thing is to release
the Pratt documents for analysis and let folks make up their own
mind re. motive. Regardless of motive, the Pratt papers still
call into question the validity of MJ12.

Best wishes,

James Carrion
MUFON International Director
