As discussed in my article for UFODATA Magazine (Sept./Oct.
2007), Walter Haut never signed an affidavit. What was created
and signed by Haut was a Sealed Statement.

In the article, I related how Schmidt claimed Haut stated he was
uncomfortable with signing an affidavit.

An affidavit is exactly administered by an officer of the court
wherein the signer swears an oath and, basically, provides a
deposition of the facts as remembered by the signer.

We can imagine why Haut claimed to be uncomfortable with signing
an affidavit. For example, he felt an affidavit would be
violating his original oath to the military; he was unsure of
what he remembered - whether he remembered correctly or not; or,
he was protecting the honor and image of his commanding officer
who (over the phone) ordered Haut to write up a press release.

As Randle stated, before writing the press release, Haut never
saw any of the debris - whether there were bodies or craft or
nothing. Haut just wrote the press release.

Because of the conditions under which Haut was, in essence,
asked to retire, I think of him as the 'State Sacrifice' to save
the necks of his commanding officers.

Maybe, Haut had a lot of experience dealing with people saving
their necks and attempting to sacrifice him. Smart guy for not
signing an affidavit. He could say anything he wanted, and
nobody would be the wiser especially since the Sealed Statement
would not be made public until after his death.
