Roy, This is a pathetic piece of journalism in which BBC anchor man Evan Davis and the astronomer Ian Ridpath make complete arrogant fools of themselves. Davis is one of the leading lights on the BBC and it's totally appalling that he and Ridpath dismiss the whole Rendlesham thing as a lighthouse without a moment's acknowledgement or consideration of the whole library of investigation of this subject. Mirage Men author Mark Pilkington, who knows the complexity of this incident, simply pleases the empty-headed Davis by claiming all UFOs are intelligence services propaganda. I have been discussing this with Rendlesham participant James Penniston on his Facebook page. Remember he's the guy who claims to have actually touched the landed craft. See an interview with him about this here: http://www.hyper.net/ufo/vs/m18-020.html Commenting on the BBC program with David and Redpath on Facebook, Jim says: ----- David, I will post what I posted on the Justice for Bentwaters Site in response to this crazy thing. Thanks for the info on the "fringe" Rendlesham debunkers. I am not sure what the motivation is. Can't they get on TV or do a radio show on anything other than Rendlesham. Well I believe that they concentrate on Rendlesham, because after ...30 years of scrutiny and debunking they still cant disprove it. You would think a debunker worth his salt, could put this to rest and disprove the evidence which has been released. Maybe they need more time, how about another thirty years! Even the United State Air Force has not discredited or debunked this case, and people should ask why they haven’t, they (the USAF) has readily gone after the rest, including Roswell, but, not Rendlesham. Why would that be?? Myself and the other witnesses have repeatedly offered to debate debunkers on television. They all have responded with deaf ears and silence. After all it would be safe for them to do that, would it not? The burden of proof is on us, not them. With that said, I would have no problem going one on one with them. Or maybe it is just a waste of time to do even that. I suggest, they can't handle the overwhelming evidence in that type of forum. Instead they have taken a sliver of information and have tailored it to meet their needs. If they only knew what those Top Secret United States documents said. Then that would be the end of that! The answers to Rendlesham don't lay in the UK, they clearly lay in the United States. This is re-enforced since all the MOD documents have been released, none of them amounting much more than UK Secret, I might add. The US, treated the MOD with courtesy information only. After all they were the lease holders for the base. This according to the USAF was clearly an American issue, not British, the British did not think of it as a defense issue anyway, how wrong could you get. Some British military knew differently, such as Lord Hill-Norton. For every bit of information that was shared with the MOD, on a good day, this only amounted to 10 percent of the information about the incident (an estimate). Rendlesham has always been an issue with the MOD, they did want to be in charge, and to their embarrassment to the rest of the world, they were not. Of course I am only basing this on the Top Secret information I was privy to in my classified meetings following the incident. Those meetings were only for US ears only. I find it rather humorous that a grown man would spend so many of his nights in a forest. Do you suppose he secretly thinks they might come back? And if he does, why would he think that when he has made it clear, that it was all a mistake by young Americans, far, far, from home. Additionally, I am also preplexed and am not sure why he thinks Rendlesham is about alien UFO’s? Why would we call them a craft- of-unknown-origin?, that simply means we were unable to identify the craft based on our expertise with known aircraft at the time. So please debunkers, (I wonder what education and experience it takes to be a debunker) don’t interject any false information, such as claiming these are alien UFO’s, and in the same breath claim it was Orford Light house three miles away in the opposite direction. None of the witnesses who were in the know, have ever claimed that alien UFO's were landed in the forest adjacent the east gate. ----- Listen to 'Strange Days...
