This assumes, Sheehan, a prominent lawyer in Washington over the
last 30 years got up one morning and decided to make up some
bizarre tale about a weird subject that does not promote his
mission one bit. More than that, his made up story names two
prominent people in Washington science circles as being
involved. Possible. Yes, but don't bet the farm on it.

She has said nothing because she has never been directed
approached. This is about to change.

He has told the story consistantly over the couple years he has
told it. You have posted twice and have already made a major
error in fact. Sheehan, in all his tellings of this story, never
once mentioned "photos of aliens". This is a further indicator
that Sheehan is probably telling it as it happened.


"It's always difficult to strike a balance between the public's
right to know and NASA's need for candor", said Marcia Smith, a
space policy senior analyst at the Congressional Research
Service in Washington, DC., as quoted by James Oberg
