This week I was flying solo because there were a number of things that I wanted to talk about to wrap up the last year. Don Schmitt and I did some of that in the shows we completed just before Christmas, but we didn’t get to everything. So, I talked about AATIP and Disclosure, but I also wanted to address some of the hoaxes and charlatans that dot the UFO landscape… and yes, I said UFO instead of UAP. I’m not changing this because some bureaucrat decided to obscure the issue by creating still another new acronym for flying saucer. You can listen to the show here:
Over the last several days, I have been exchanging emails, well, comments over on Rich Reynold’s UFO Conjectures blog. This had to do with Philip Corso. I suggested that Corso’s tales should be rejected because his book was filled with speculation and half-truths. I have addressed these things before but this time I suggested that one of the pictures in his book, that he captioned, “Lt. Col. Corso was never able to confirm the veracity of the following purported UFO surveillance photos, which were in Army Intelligence files as support material for the R&D project to harvest the Roswell alien technology for military purpose,” was in error.

But what really brought all this to mind were two pictures sent to me in the last month or so. These were pictures of a wrecked craft that was claimed, by some on the Internet, to be the Roswell wreckage. One of the pictures seemed to show a jet engine and at no time has anyone I talked to mentioned a propulsion system that looked like a jet engine. The picture was obviously of an aircraft accident.

|The retrieval operation that looks to me like a diorama, but is probably from the|
same aircraft accident.
Anyway, I just wanted to clear up these points and to provide some evidence about what I had said.
