Hello List

Many of us have seen this behaviour in UFO circles and even more
often in politics: when someone can't face the facts of a case
or an argument they simply rewrite it to be easier to criticise
and then pretend that was the original case or argument.

That's euphemistically known as a 'Straw Man' tactic. Plain-
speaking folk, like me, call it lying.

Here's three facts gleaned from an interview conducted by Stuart
Miller (first two reported in the Press at the time iirc)

i) Professor Wickramasinghe and his family received death
threats, to make him "keep quiet"

ii) Police claimed those threats were untraceable

iii) at least one Gov't or quasi-Gov't 'agency' - which could
create "further problems" - pressurized Professor Wickramasinghe
to "keep quiet"

That last fact is in this snipppet from the interview at:


[Quotation Begins]

SM: - Nothing from a government source? No shadowy figure has
stepped forth and said, "Could you stop this?"

CW: - It's hard to answer that question. I think there were

SM: - You do?

CW: - Yes. Maybe I shouldn't answer this question because it
could lead to further problems.

SM: - Professor, I am most grateful for your time.

[Quotation Ends]

I would heartily recommend to anyone who doesn't want to
(inadvertently?) tell lies, that they thoroughly read material
before commenting on it. Those who don't care will carry on
doing what they do best - lying.
