No question that Phil was unscrupulous whenever he thought he
could get away with it.

Twice on Larry King he expressed strong negative opinions about
books (David Jacobs and Kevin Randle) that later in the show he
admitted he hadn't read.

His letter to the Canadian government about me was typical trash
from him.

It is interesting that his papers are at the American
Philosophcal Society Library in Philadelphia. But his correspo-
ndence (20 years or so) with me isn't.

Perhaps he didn't want people to know he paid me $1000. for
providing 14 examples of documents from the NSC using the same
style and pica type face used in the Cutler Twining memo.

It might not be a bad idea to collect examples of his
deceitfulness. It would be a long article indeed. It would be a
tribute to his following the basic debunker rules "Don't bother
me with the facts, my mind is made up" and "if one can't attack
the data, attack the people", and "what the public doesn't know,
I won't tell them", and do your investigation by Proclamation..

Happy Canada Day Everyone,

Stan Friedman
