Neil, and Steven

I am answering you, Neil, and Steven Keaser.

Please, let's try to stick to clear facts.

First, we have a message of James Bond Johnson, passed on UFO
Updates on June 1st, 1998, under the title "Examination of
Roswell Photos Clears the Air Force" . It refers to a Press
release of May 31, by Ronald Regehr, "Director, Research and
Investigations, for Mufon, Orange County, California.

Bond Johnson announces the release by Regehr of a new digital
enlargement, with this comment:

"He had made the digital enlargement using latest technology,
directly from new enlargements obtained from the original
negatives of the photos, now housed in the Special Collections
Section of the Main Library at the Universitiy of Texas at

"Nothing has prepared me to begin to try to read these strange
symbols that are displayed prominently all along some of the
beams in my photos of General Ramey... It is most impressive
that, aided by this advanced digital technology, we finally have
the capacity to enlarge details of the wreckage to see clearly
what is indeed some kind of "writings" that do not appear to be
any known writings by any earth residents" (Etc.)

Then , we have the second "bombshell" of Bond Johnson, in a
message of June 15 to UFO Updates, transmitted by Stig Agermose,
entitled "Jesse Jr, Again Sees Symbols From Roswell Crash". In
it, Johnson writes:

"Now he was seeing them remarkably being painted across his
computer screen " (etc.)

And he quoted Jesse Marcel Jr as saying:

"I am sure that some of the material in the photos is the real
stuff - maybe it all is". Jesse said as he looked closely at
the details... " (etc.)

The next day, Stig Agermose passes a message of Michael
Lindemann, from CNI News, entitled "Jesse Jr. Dissociates
Humself From Johnson".

Lindemann writes:

"I've told James Bond Johnson in no uncertain terms that this
story of his is plain wrong. It's misleading at least, deceptive
at worst. Jesse Marcel has emphatically denied seeing anything
in the photos except weather balloon material. I've been in
repeated touch with Marcel over the last couple of days and I
have his written statement. Marcel specifically does not see
anything like the symbols he remembers seeing back in 1947. It
is very disappointing that Johnsonn has, in effect put words in
Marcel's mouth". Johnson must retract his story".

Well, I'm afraid Bond Johnson never retracted his story!

Being myself in contact with Marcel Jr, I asked him to confirm
Lindemann's statement, and he did so, without any ambiguity.
Regarding the scans provided by Stan Friedman, I have them and I
have not seen any symbol either. Are they different scans than
those provided by Ron Regehr, and/or Neil Mossis, I don't really
know, but they are, indeed, of high definition.

Now, the deciphering of General Ramey's memo is an entirely
different debate. Yes, you can see the lines and try to read
them. Great efforts have been made with very interestting
results. Perhaps David Rudiak and Brad Sparks would like to
refresh our memories about that?
