Greg, List, All -

Here's what the Mogul crowd seems to forget... According to
Charles Moore, they went to Roswell to brief the base on their
experiments and to ask for help in tracking the balloons. We
don't know who was at that meeting, but Blanchard would have
asked Marcel to keep track of this stuff because it could be a
hazard to aerial navigation... The Mogul flights were announced
through NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen) so that those flying in New
Mexico were aware of the balloon launches.

As if this really matters because Mogul was off-the-shelf
weather balloons and rawin wind targets. There was nothing in a
Mogul array that would have been sufficiently unusual that
Marcel wouldn't have recognized it immediately.

And, Sheridan Cavitt, in his interview with the Air Force said
that he recognized the material as a balloon when he saw it but
no one ever asked him why he didn't mention that to Marcel while
both were out on that field or why he didn't mention it to
Blanchard before the press release, or why he didn't send a
report to his higher headquarters explaining that he had been
out chasing balloons.
