Gildas,

Actually, the only thing that I can confirm is that he was the
CIA's media relations liaison in 2004, when I contacted them. I
presume he was serious about his job, but I have no idea what
his level of seniority was.

In terms of my point about what Karl said to me, I think you
misunderstood. Karl had no specific comment about Brandon, per
se (I doubt that he even knew him) - rather, his comment was
simply that all calls made to the CIA are monitored (and
probably recorded), even one like mine.

This didn't come as a surprise to me, partly because I'm not as
naive as Karl suspected (although his tongue was firmly planted
in his cheek on that point), and partly because of my personal
experience years ago with security checks when I was employed by
the RCMP as a low level special constable. The things they
already knew about my contacts with various diplomats whislt I
was working at United Nations seminars in college, especially
from South Africa and the USSR, were pretty thorough. Needless
to say, the intelligence agencies are accumulators of as much
information as they can lay their hands on, no matter how
trivial we might think it is.

In Brandon's case, it seems he had a personal motivation beyond
his official duties when talking to someone like me who
expressed an interest in, or knowledge of, the UFO phenomenon.
Namely, he was mining us for ideas for his book.

>But the question remains: why did he come out with such a
>curious "revelation"?

The answer is fairly simple, and hardly surprising - to sell
books. In the grand scheme of things, I suspect that the CIA has
more important things to worry about than stories made up by
Brandon about what he claims to have seen in his time in their
employ.


Best regards,

Paul
