Fair enough, but you're missing the point.

Indeed Halt's memo does re-emphasise the Penniston, Buran and
Chandler story of positively identifying a "mechanical device",
an object also drawn by Burroughs as a "triangular" body bearing
blue and red lights.

The claim now is that they "left out" the detail of actually
touching it because they feared for their careers and so all
conspired to claim falsely that 50 meters was as close as they
got. But the difference, in terms of career damage, between
reporting that you have "positively identified" an object as a
mechanical device "out of the realm of explanation" from 50
meters away, and reporting that you have so identified it from 1
meter away, seems to me to be an overly sophistical one that
could never reasonably have been expected to serve as a sensible
