How about this Dave, everything you stated is not evidence of
anything except rumors, second hand death bed confessions,
imagined figures at a distance and, maybe, something seen in a
hanger somewhere. No evidence; no photos; just possibly faulty
memories - a need for a group of people to link themselves with
a group of believers.

Snarky comments are not a refutation of Carrion's article.
Repeating what you heard from other people, possibly, in the
halls at UFO conferences? Doesn't work for me.

BTW, the Poles were working with the very secret group of code
breakers at Benchley. I know I took the tour of the facility
while in Britain. The most famous code breaker was a Brit named
Alan Turing. Also, I have read a couple of books on the Enigma -
that would be the code I believe you are trying to make
reference to.

Marcel spreading something or other on his kitchen floor? A
scenario pictured in a young child's mind as a way to link with
his father? The child remembered pictographs from the Japanese
tape used as adhesive tape. Years later he thought he had seen
"alien words."

Carrion really cannot be categorized as a "useful idiot". He was
head of MUFON and, apparently, during his research found
information to change his mind about just what and where the so-
called "aliens/ETs" came from or what the phenomena might really
be. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and ask him what
changed his mind.

So, far, not in any of your very flip comments I have seen
references to documentation. Just you repeating authors who were
repeating some one else's opinion. No original research work.
Nor have you stated which UFO organization you were head of.
