I haven't been following the ins and outs of this discussion,
but it appears that you're suggesting that the witnesses have
been embellishing their story to such an extent that the
"embellishments" chould really be called outright lies. However,
the Haut memo does seem to provide relevant corroboration to the
more detailed stories:

"1. Early in the morning of 27 Dec 80 (approximately 0300L) two
USAF security police patrolmen saw unusual lights outside the
back gate at RAF Woodbridge. Thinking an aircraft might have
crashed or been forced down, they called for permission to go
outside the gate to investigate... The individuals reported
seeing a strange glowing object in the forest. The object was
described as being metallic in appearance and triangular in
shape, approximately two to three meters across the base and
approximately two meters high. It illuminated the entire forest
with a white light. The object itself had a pulsing red light on
top and a bank(s) of blue lights underneath."

Clearly, what is being described here is much more than a "will
o' the wisp". According to this memo, written in January 1981,
_somebody_ made a detailed report of a mechanical object of the
type described much later by Penniston, but not described in any
of the signed statements made by any of the witnesses at the
time. Maybe there were embellishments made, intentionally or
not, by the witnesses in later years, but Halt's memo seems to
support the possibility that their signed statements might have
been downplayed what they actually saw. If the detailed
description of an unconventional machine in the middle of the
forest was a fabrication made to sell books, it was a plot
hatched less than a month after the alleged incident.
