So you do understand that some people may be embarrassed when played for suckers. I guess that's the one that applies to me. That you were a British government employee with some experience in monitoring UFO sightings actually enhanced your credibility as far as I was concerned, as did your media profile. My views on the Daily Mail article were expressed in an earlier post. http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2012/jun/m10-001.shtml I felt your comments were wholly consistent with a recent National Geographic documentary on how the world would defend itself against an alien invasion. As far as I could tell, the documentary treated the subject seriously and it was not a video game promo. Your comments could have come right from the documentary's script. If that documentary was serious, then why wouldn't your comments be? In this context, there was no need to look for clues to try to understand what you were doing. Like National Geographic, you were obviously just another fear monger. It is now quite clear that you do not care to separate fact from fiction in your public pronouncements. From now on, what you say will be of no interest to me. If enough others agree, your vaunted "high media profile" with respect to UFO sightings will wither and die. It would be ironic if your future income depended on that reputation. That government pension is a pittance, isn't it? I wish you well. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
