Maybe not - by Jerry Cohen Preamble: Folks, this is a long piece but I believe, a good one. Obviously, you will be the judge of that. If you're curious about Rendlesham (1980) and you have patience to go through it as I have, I suspect this is probably a must read. For me, what I learned from this investigation in the last six months was more interesting than I ever could have imagined. For those interested in analyzing this case in-depth, this on-line rendition will be much easier to cross-check than anything most people could probably achieve in a standard book. Many of the internal links are redundant just to help people either instantly retrieve earlier points or check the veracity and/or accuracy of things I've said. I don't expect you to access all the URLs, but some are there simply for an instant replay of various issues in the proceedings if needed. It is definitely important for one to realize that when I started my research into this, I honestly had no idea which way it was going to go. As it turned out, it necessarily wound up becoming a critique of The Rendlesham Forest UFO case by Ian Ridpath, located at http://www.ianridpath.com/ufo/rendlesham.htm Ian has been thought by a number of people to have written the definitive, scientific piece on this topic. Although I didn't expect it, what I discovered for myself and have laboriously toiled to display for you here will hopefully demonstrate beyond reasonable doubt that, as impressive-looking as Ian's website is, his on-line rendition concerning Rendlesham may not actually be as definitive as is presently thought. It is as much a surprise to me as to anyone else reading this. Another reason I'm putting it on-line is because I believe it clearly and thoroughly explains why Halt, Burroughs, and Penniston were included in the prestigious international group of people who testified concerning their specific UFO experiences at the National Press Club conference in Washington DC, November 12, 2007. It also explains why a number of researchers haven't been able to fully agree with Ian's solution for Rendlesham in all this time. A link to the aforementioned conference has been provided at the end of this piece. At the outset, it is necessary to say it is a pleasure to note the time and hard work which Ian, David Clarke, James Easton, Peter Brooksmith, Jenny Randles, Tim Printy, Georgina Bruni, Robert Hastings and others had put toward their investigations into Rendlesham. I am truly thankful for their diligent work. In particular, one can note the amount of honest thought and obvious effort and expense which went into Ian's presentation concerning same. His website's layout makes it very easy for other researchers to read and analyze. Therefore, nothing I am about to say diminishes in any way my respect for what he and others have accomplished in this regard. As a matter of fact, my own fact gathering and analysis for this piece probably would not have been totally possible without the excellent foundation Ian laid for us, including the impressive linking and data he presented. That being said, the majority of what you are about to read will be the displaying of a number of items of agreement and disagreement between Ian's thinking and my own. Also included is my additional analysis of certain testimonial data which, as far as I can see, seems to have taken second place in Ian's investigation. When the result of that analysis is given its due, contrary to Ian's on-line presentation, I believe it is possible for others to conclude the summation of those testimonies points to an excellent chance one or more UFOs were present at Bentwaters/Rendlesham in December 1980.
