Edward,

Some of Greer's witnesses are high caliber, verifiable etc etc.
Some are not and can't be verified. Supposedly at one point
Greer claimed that they were going to check out these witnesses,
then at another point his people emailed me about not having the
time or money to check out the stories and more importantly was
to get the stories out in public etc., etc. In yet another email
his people were claiming they were going to let the
Congressional investigators investigate the backgrounds of the
witnesses.

Can you imagine the foolishness of that? Lets say hearings are
actually scheduled. One party or the other will be against them,
blathering about how they are a waste of time, why we should be
spending time and money on more earthly problems. Picture what
happens when some of these Congressional people get wind of the
fact that witness backgrounds are not checking out? It will be
used as a weapon to discredit any and all storys told.

Not 'possible shortcomings' but actual credibility problems...
which need to be addressed before, not after.

Not to mention Greer's apparent bias that 'all ET's are
essentially saviours' so to speak, just waiting to help us poor
earthlings and any evidence that suggests more sinister intents
is manufactured by the US govt to make ET look bad etc etc.


Cheers,

Robert
