What is becoming clearer and clearer, is that researchers who
claim to have interacted with various clandestine services just
hold their nose and dive in without learning anything about who
they are dealing with.

Chase is just one example of one person - out of many - who
manipulated people for self-agradizement; i.e., pretending to be
working for a heavy duty agency. More and more he sounds like he
might have worked for a cut out agency; or not; just another
Hollywood grifter.

How about everybody use this as a lesson and stop being so
impressed the CIA or whoever they think is interested in them
as a ufo researcher. It's bull. The special project worked. They
don't need you any more. Unless it is to control the new
approaches to interacting with the universe.
