John,

Gildas wasn't characterizing the review of the Carey/Schmitt
book as "skeptical." Where did you get that idea? Gildas was
expressing surprise at the reviewer's open-minded reading.

My own view - which is unlike either yours or the reviewer's -
is expressed in the foreword to Swords and Powell's UFOs and
Government (2012).
