You're right. When Haut said "...at the meeting... Gen. Ramey
proposed a plan, which I believe originated from his bosses at
the Pentagon", I took this to mean that the essence of the
weather balloon plan was explained at the meeting, if not the
exact when and where. But, yes, it could be that only the need
for some sort of substitution was discussed, without a
conclusion being reached as to what would be substituted. That's
one of my problems out of the way.

But if Haut was himself covering up clues to his own (and perhaps
Blanchard's) real role in 1993, and, instead of simply saying
nothing, went to the trouble of inventing circumstantial
smokescreen details in a sworn affidavit:

"I believe Col. Blanchard saw the material, because he sounded
positive about what the material was", "He felt that he wanted
the local media to have the first opportunity at the story"

Does this fit with his then "dropping many hints" and telling
several people explicitly about the secret meeting and the
bodies over the years, including UFO investigators? I'm not
sure. I still find it difficult to make that 1993 affidavit ring
false in a way that rings true, if you understand what I mean!
