Actually, I think that Sheehan's story has remained very
constant, but he seems to have stopped promoting it of late.
During the summer he was queried about the specifics of this
episode and IMO he has de-emphasized much of what had been
touted previously during the Greer event in DC.

Sheehan's involvement in the cases you've mentioned is not at
issue. His anecdotal commentary that doesn't appear to fit the
facts is certainly open to discussion. I would like to pursue
the claim that he went to the Madison building to view UFO
information (in a guarded room), which doesn't make a lot of
sense. As far as the building itself is concerned, the
cornerstone was laid in 1974 and Pres. Ronald Reagan
participated in dedication ceremonies on November 20, 1981. I
don't seem to recall if Sheehan narrowed down the time frame as
to this visit to the Madison, but I think Carter performed the
bulk of his inquiry into the subject during his first term,
rather than the second. The Madison was only two years into
construction when Carter's second term began.

During Sheehan's visit to DC during the 'Disclosure Project
Briefing' I had the opportunity of meeting him at an area
restaurant. He is a very interesting person and I would be most
interested in hearing more details. Unfortunately, his visit to
the Madison wasn't even mentioned that evening, in spite of his
discussion of his Carter/UFO involvement.
