Its also possible that she in fact never said the things
attributed to her by Sheehan.

The point being is that she has said nothing, and will continue
to say nothing... likely because she has nothing to say about
the subject.

Perhaps it is true, perhaps it isn't. He can tell the story 100s
of times and it still doesn't necessarly make it true. Recall
also the famous quote "I did not have sexual relations with that
woman..." told very publicly in front of hundreds of cameras,
broadcast globally, and re-run endlessly. Didn't change the fact
it was not correct.

Apparently, in essence, other then "Sheehan has said..." we can
get no independent confirmation, either through Congressional
records, or the questioning of people involved, say Marcia
Smith, so the bottom line is just another story being told in
Ufology about allegedly seeing classified records, photos of
aliens and so forth, all that can't be verified.
