The Roswell Dream Team, Donald Schmitt, And The Broken Ethical
Compass Of Ufology

The ethical dilemma that has been revealed about the Roswell
"Dream Team" in recent days should come as no surprise given the
participation of Donald Schmitt, a person who should have
remained a pariah in UFO research given the proven lies he told
in the 1990s, lies that related to far more than just his
background, despite what many many people would have you believe
today (such as the Paracast hosts who had him on their show last
week and gave him a complete pass on his past, although to be
fair they just happen to be the most recent example of a long
list of people who have given Schmitt a pass).

It's amazing how quickly people involved in UFO "research"
forget and forgive transgressions that would sink a career in
any self-respecting field of research. Schmitt has been back on
the lecture and radio circuit for years, and has published
several books with his current research partner Tom Carey... and
when the "Dream Team" was formed he re-united with his original
partner, Kevin Randle.

I'm not going to revisit the long and sordid Schmitt story in
its entirety here - that's what Google searches are for. But

published in 1995 that summarizes it succinctly:
