With all respect, Sir... one man's rather reflexive "garbage" is
another man's honest 14 year research into a mountain of
peculiar data, first person reports, and documented aviation
history. I submit that there is no mystery to Stanton Friedman's
endorsement. Stanton Friedman has long been a man willing to
face facts, Sir, has ever been a demonstration of the intrepid
researcher without regard to the patent disrespect of persons
riding on his enduring coattails. There is Data, Mr. Hall. Data
is Stanton Friedman's middle name.

Consider - whatever Keesler AFB's, 'official' function... Sir,
there were shoot-down orders in effect... and UFOs crossing the
ADIZ in the vicinity of Keesler would make its active runway and
Jet Fuel available and attractive for an interdiction mission
regarding same. Perhaps even one outside the purview of one
junior-ranking non-career enlisted man.

With regard to dissenting Flatwoods witnesses? What would be
peculiar is the complete dearth of _any_ dissention on the
