But Gildas, further down you admit that Schmitt himself is
"pessimistic."  How is that possible if his work is such a great
step forward to "final proof" (your words farther down)??

Sorry but all we have from Carey-Schmitt is more of exactly the
same kind of dead-end anecdotes we got in 1980 from Berlitz and
Moore-Friedman. How many more years of interviewing Roswell
townspeople and _relatives_ of Roswell townspeople before we
realize that they lead us nowhere but to the _town_ of Roswell,
New Mexico?  Roswell is the graveyard of investigative dead-end
leads, exactly as the AF likes it.

Now if a crashed spaceship and dead aliens were stored in a
secret underground vault under Roswell why then it might make
some sense to keep investigating Roswell town leads.

I should explain that I brought up Pflock's 1994 book to
illustrate how the 'open door' to ETH at Roswell can be opened
without involving a recovered ET spacecraft or alien bodies.
For more on this see below.

I should also explain that I stated in the MUFON Proceedings
article on Pratt's files and MJ-12 that the reason I mentioned
my own pro-ETH evidence for Roswell was out of "fairness" and
balance, since my own conclusion is skeptically non-ETH.

Refuting MJ-12 is an anti-ETH result and I didn't want readers
to think that means there is nothing to Roswell and no evidence
at all for ETH, if in fact I have found something pro-ETH that
is contrary to my own position on the subject.

But I was lambasted for not posting _all_ this pro-Roswell
evidence on UFO UpDates even before my investigation has had a
chance to get underway.  Yet I see no one complaining that
Carey-Schmitt should have posted their entire book on UpDates
_before_ publication in order to undergo "peer review."  Double

Finally, lest there be any misunderstanding, I have completely
eliminated a Mogul balloon at Roswell, based on finding that
Flight 4 could not possibly have _successfully_ flown almost 100
miles to Brazel's Debris Field since the next Mogul Flight 5 was
in fact the "first successful" Mogul flight, according to the
NYU Final Report.  Crary's diary records that Flight 4 was
cancelled, and in fact it must have been launched the next
morning _as_ Flight 5, which was recovered.  So we know Flight 5
did not land on Foster Ranch a hundred miles away from where it
was followed by the Mogul project chase-plane and actually

At the risk of repeating myself and violating Hall's Law, I did
explain all this.  Karl's scenario suggested an ET vehicle
collided with a Mogul balloon possibly leaving some anomalous
debris or residue but _no_ crashed spaceship or bodies.  That is
_one_ example of an in-between scenario.  Many others can be
suggested _without_ a Mogul balloon, especially the one coming
from the most credible witness data, which I consider to be the
CIC agents and what they reported about LaPaz's scientific
investigation of Roswell.  They saw no bodies and no ship.  But
they did see a burned area or crater with melted glass, etc.
That's an 'in between'.
