Hi Errol,

I've been watching the back-and-forth on the Chase Brandon thing
with interest, and there seems to be some confusion/debate as to
what his role was with the CIA, and whether he actually did what
he said he did. Well, I can confirm the media relations part of
it from direct experience. If you feel that UpDates Listers
would find this useful/informative, feel free to post the


I don't for a single second believe that Chase Brandon ever saw
anything about the uber-secret Roswell ET crash, because I'm
convinced that there was a perfectly rational (i.e. terrestrial)
explanation for Roswell, which the USAF laid out years ago.

It's not that which I find interesting; rather, it's that I once
had an hour long chat with Brandon on the phone whilst he was
still the CIA's media liaison guy ("Chase Brandon" is a name you
don't forget).

It was 2004, and I was looking for permission to use a couple of
photos of ex-CIA directors in my MJ-12 film for Space. It was a
simple request, more of a courtesy call really for the sake of E
& O "t" crossing and "i" dotting, but after he gave me the okey-
dokey, Brandon wanted to chat about UFOs and my work for quite a

He was friendly, and I'm a friendly guy who likes to talk, so we
had a very amiable conversation.

I didn't think anything of it until I was chatting with my
friend, the late Karl Pflock, who was of course ex-CIA and DOD,
and when I mentioned the call he laughed. I asked him what he
found so amusing. "Your naivete," he answered. "Take my word for
it, every angle of the conversation had a purpose for him, and
there's now a nice little file on you somewhere in Langley."

As it turns out, I suspect that Brandon was more interested in
garnering insight for his future work as an author than he was
in gathering info about me or UFOs for the agency.
