Well, there's the Wikipedia article I provided and the 2001 Guardian article linked in it about Mr Brandon. Hardly "conclusive", of course. According to that information, Brandon was the CIA's liason to the movie industry. His task was to encourage the positive portrayal of the CIA by the entertainment industry. During the current story's news cycle, Brandon indicated he wanted to draw a line separating current CIA agents from the activities of agents in the past (apparently re Roswell). Absolving the current Agency and agents from the activities of their long ago bretheren seems inline with Brandon's last position at the CIA. Brandon said he saw text and photos at the CIA that confirmed for him his belief that a spaceship and aliens were the Roswell incident. Brandon quoted in the Huffington Post: "It was not a damn weather balloon - it was what it was billed when people first reported it," said Chase Brandon, a 35-year CIA veteran. "It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet, it crashed and I don't doubt for a second that the use of the word 'remains' and 'cadavers' was exactly what people were talking about." Those who think the CIA and Roswell are joined at the hip and those who think they are unconnected will have different interpretations of 'Brandon' being a possible deception operation by the CIA. Since I do not think Roswell and the CIA are connected, I have to wonder why the CIA would want to advertise a connection, as they had none. There would be no need to firewall the current agency from any Roswell misdeeds in the past. Mr Brandon refers to a "weather balloon", and not AFOSI's Mogul. If "what it was billed as" was a 'flying disc', then "the people" who "first reported it" were from the RAAF. What to make of "the use of the word 'remains' and 'cadavers' was exactly what people were talking about."? Do we know of any witness who used those words, specifically? I'm not current on Roswell Witnessology. The only one I can think of who might have was Glenn Dennis. David Rudiak's reading of the Ramey memo has "victims". Why did Brandon (or the HP) emphasize those two words? Where they in the texts he said he found in a box marked 'Roswell'? Would whoever at AFOSI has the Roswell portfolio recognize the reference(s)? I'm waiting for (and hoping for) Act II, and (I wish, I wish) a discernable response from the AF. But, so far. It looks like a publicity stunt to gain some visibility for Mr Brandon and his book.
