>Calling Arnold an honest man is attacking the witness?

Indirectly James. If you want to call him an honest man why bury
it in a sentence that also states:

"In other words, one can only conclude that regardless of
your opinion of Arnold"....

You damn him with faint praise.

You constantly refer to others as hard-core believers. I don't
what I am but hard-core is not one of them. I spend more time
refuting BS theories ( like no one else has thought of this
particular possibility and discounted it out of hand because it
just doesn't fit) about these things while not really getting
down to the nitty-gritty.

BTW - I am not questioning your right to bash the phenomenon but
using this arcane, mouldy reasoning such as "the US's ability to
accomplish whatever it puts its hand too' crap that I've been
seeing on these lists for years. The most outstanding of which
is "these things are probably "Top Secret" US experimental
aircraft (I'm waiting for you to roll this one out-BTW) which
has been floated since day one with never an ounce of proof to
support it.

The CIA's ability to do much of anything in 1947 is a case in
point. Why not have a look at their structure back then, their
budgets-good luck because their budgets from '47-60s is a black
hole. Steve Aftergood has been trying to get it for years. FOIAs
refused, etc.

The Maury Island case should be segregated from Arnold's
experience in the Cascades. Maury Island might well have had
roots in disinformation and the trusty hands of 6 year old
intelligence community in the US.

Above is abbreviated I know - best I can do. Will be out of town
for 4 days working.
