Hello Brad, List,

My interest in Roswell is only peripheral, but I _am_ interested
in government secrecy policy, and the ability (or lack of) the
authorities to maintain an effective cover-up. In that context,
Brad's following remarks interested me:

This makes an interesting conundrum. Assuming the document _is_
genuine, then the matter of UFOs is regarded as less sensitive
than communications intercept activity, i.e., UFOs are not
subject to the highest security rating. This would appear to
contradict many other 'experts' in the field. The only logical
alternative is that the documents are fake, again contrary to
many of the very same 'experts'.

Taking the above into account together with the fact that there
are far more documents available on the topic of UFOs that there
are on the topic of communications intercepts (at least that is
the case here in the UK), this would appear to lend weight to
the documents being genuine, and the topic of UFOs not being
regarded as sensitive as other military matters.

Brad, Barry, and Mary are to be congratulated on tackling the
documents from a new perspective, it's a pity that their efforts
are undermined by the accompanying acrimony. Personally, I would
put all that down to pressures of time (essentially artificial
deadlines) - I feel sure that if more time was available,
agreement between all three on the final wording would have been
