Does anyone know of any actual documented instance of this? I don't mean from ufology, but from the undisputed history of official secrecy as practiced by U.S. government agencies. I'm reasonably read in these and related matters, and I've heard of none. In any case, for all sorts of obvious reasons, it would be awfully hard to make somebody's past disappear. Too many people are out there to attest to it if it's true, for one thing. For another, any official attempt to erase somebody's educational and professional record could hardly pass unnoticed. We'd be reading about in the New York Times and in books by intelligence journalists and historians. Those of us who have followed the fate of whistleblowers - Joe Wilson, for example, who exposed the phoniness of the Bush Administration's justification for the Iraq War - are aware that there are well established procedures for discrediting them. Suffice it to say they don't involve turning them into non-persons. Unless there's real evidence that this sort of thing happens, I don't think it accomplishes anything - beyond making apologists look as if grasping for straws to support a belief they wish to maintain - to offer these sorts of claims loosely. We do know beyond any doubt, however, that people in all walks of life - ufology is far, far from alone in the dismal practice - invent resumes all the time. Jerry Clark Listen to 'Strange Days...
