In general I agree with your review; however there were some
noteworthy problems which I cannot let go by without a comment.

First, there was a bit too much use of the terms "mythology" and
"science fiction" in the narratives, which seemed to be a bit of
gratuitous editorializing by writers not familiar with the
research on Roswell.

Then, toward the end, following the lamentations over the Frank
Kaufman problem, there was a reference to hoaxes which listed
the Ray Santilli alien autopsy film, the MJ-12 documents, and
the alien corpse photographs purchased by Bob Guccione.

I take issue with this because the MJ-12 documents are still an
open question. Much in-depth research has been done by serious
investigators in the attempt to either prove or disprove the
authenticity of these documents.  There is no call to summarily
dismiss them as hoaxes at this time, and I suggest that one of
the "technical advisors" to the program was responsible for
introducing this tidbit into the script.

I will list those people shown on camera and identified as "UFO
Investigators" or "Roswell Investigators":

Kevin Randle, Don Schmitt, David Rudiak, Tom Carey, Karl Pflock,
Richard Dolan, Robert J. Durant, Charles B. Moore, Stan
Friedman, and Bruce Maccabee.  (If I missed anyone, my apologies
for my note-taking skills.)

Of these people, who would be likely to have summarily labeled
the MJ-12 documents as a fraud?

I invite that person(s) to take responsibility for it, and to
present a legitimate reason for such an underhanded subterfuge.
