Hi Gerald & Eleanor,

It confused me also at the time. Looking back it seems the 'high
command' of NASA/JPL decided (and immediately broadcast) that
"No Life Has Been Found on Mars" and produced some quibbles to
justify a claim that the experiments were 'misleading'.

And that meanwhile, scientists 'on the ground' at NASA and
others observing were fairly sure that life _had_ been found,
but their opinions were initially not reported, for one reason
or another.

As to "Why?" - your guesses are as good as any.
