I completely agree. The concept of 'expert witness' means
absolutely nothing with regard to this phenomena. Likewise,
'expert opinions' aren't worth their salt either. To me the
claim of expert witness/expert opinion implies an individual
having a long history of UFO sightings/interactions, something a
tad bit problematic. Unfortunately, when it comes to this
phenomena we are all in the same boat, and one having tattered
sails at that.
