I have read the recent articles, and found absolutely no new
information regarding the Trindade Case. It's basically just a
long rant against Alexandre Borges' interview with Barauna's

It's also outdated. Most importantly, it completely ignores the
statements by the two crewmembers on board at the moment of the
sighting. There are also many other factual errors and outdated
info, such as failing to recognize the Navy report was first
published by APRO, and that the Argentinean republishing of said
report by Ojea was -- as Martin Shough helped me sort out --
actually a Spanish translation of APRO's translation (which
means it was translated thrice, from Portuguese to English, then
to Spanish, then back to Portuguese, the version which
circulates now in Brazil).

No news here either. We already knew that version of how
Kubitschek leaked the photos to a newspaper that supported him.
Petit himself is selling the video interview where Barauna tells
that story for many years already.

I hope that our fellows abroad will be able to see for
themselves what I wanted to anticipate: there's no new
information from Petit, or in any of the associated articles on
Trindade published on that issue. On the contrary, it's outdated
and inaccurate.

There's also an article by co-editor Claudeir Covo, actually
just a republishing of his article on Trindade published several
years ago. And the most important thing is the update Covo added
at the end, stating that the new information on the case led him
to completely reevaluate his previous assessment of the case.
