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

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

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

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.
