There are far too many problems with this statement to give it
value in convincing the skeptical, and I would also suggest that
the term "affidavit" is being used for what is most likely not a
legally binding document. This doesn't impact its importance to
researchers and our discussions, but other than debates such as
this are there any hopes that it would do more?

I can say that the original Wendy Connors interview was
discussed at length at MUFON, CUFOS and the Fund, but it was
generally felt that his presentation wasn't strong and he could
never withstand the questioning of a skeptical press, so the
interview was shelved as interesting.

Wendy and others have described their take on this at length,
and those postings can be found in the Updates Archive. Haut may
not have been senile or dementia may not have set in when the
interview was held, but the hope would be to bring out witness
in a press briefing and force the military to respond, and
clearly Haut wasn't up for that.
