If I misunderstood you, I apologize, but the very title of your
paper suggested that: "the creation of the modern UFO myth".

Very briefly, can we believe your story of staged events in the
cases of Kenneth Arnold, Maury Island and Roswell, to try to
convince the Russians that the Americans had superior weapons?

First, the sighting of Kenneth Arnold. We know that there were
no such advanced, supersonic planes at the time. Even if they
had been available, the very timing of such a display was an
impossible task. Crazy story.

Now, the Maury Island case. Yes, it is doubtful. But do you
really think it would have been a good tale to convince the
Russians of the existance of superior airplanes ? Of course no.

Then Roswell. Here we reach the top of absurdity: to announce
the crash of and advanced craft in the morning, and to explain
it away in the evening as a confusion with a weather balloon.
The worst possible scenario to convince the Russians of an
advanced weapon! And what about the more than a hundred credible
witnesses supporting the UFO crash? They are not all fools.

All this is pure nonsense to me. Sorry to have to say it again.
