Subject: Enhanced Credibility For Pilot Reports

Hello List,

We're familiar with the establishment habit of suppressing all
kinds of reports by 'shooting the messenger' - i.e. by having
pilots punished, one way or another, for making UFO sighting

You might be interested to hear the opinion of an eminently
well-qualified and almost uniquely experienced scientist who'd
begun investigating pilots' UFO reports in order to prove they
were all mistakes - just 'misidentified natural phenomena'.

That's Richard F. Haines Ph.D of NASA - here's video of him
presenting some of the cases he studied.

[BTW - it turned out that it was Dr Haines who was mainly
responsible for that Japanese pilot - who'd been grounded for
making an (honest) UFO report - eventually getting his job back:

After investigating a number of cases as a skeptic, eventually
Dr Haines said, on the video (at about 35:44 mins) " ...in fact
these phenomena are _not_ misidentified natural phenomena. Some
of them are, but not very many" (his stress).

Which is almost the direct opposite of the establishment mantra
of "most are easily explained", when talking about reports from
pilots, police, air-traffic controllers etc _and_ from the
public. In fact, that opinion would make good court-room
evidence for those pilots, who've been unfairly hounded or even
sacked (for merely being honest), if they were to sue for unfair

[And what about the criminalizing of service personnel who do
the same? Surely any straight judge (maybe rare) would say it
was their right and duty to tell the truth.]
