Still no word from Imbrogno regarding this debacle? It figures this would happen at just this time considering new inroads to the Hudson Valley UFO sightings is going on. Took me years to get through to people back there but now they see how when they went to government for answers they got stonewalled or outright lied to. I know for a fact there are hundreds of thousands of witnesses with tons of video and pictures but they've been scared to bring them forward. I know because I did much growing up in the area and my family has been there since before Columbus discovered the New World. I've never met Mr. Imbrogno. I tried to contact him for years on end with no success. Suddenly about a year or so ago he finally responded. That was about it. His book with Dr. Hynek, "Night Siege" was the one-two punch of books about the Hudson Valley along with Ellen Crystal's "Silent Invasion". Both books scary and Crystal's more because of her remarkable photographs. Recently I dived in again into the Hudson Valley sightings as Facebook allowed me to track down even more witnesses and former news colleagues that were there during the CE's. People are opening up because of the statistical data regarding UFO sightings and the lectures and documentaries many of you on this list have been part of. Also, people losing their jobs, homes, pensions, investments are porcupine pissed and many worked on advanced systems they can't understand aren't being implemented to help with energy and medical that they know are decades old. So now, the #1 book on the Hudson Valley UFO phenomenon has a monster credibility problem? It figures. Right timely too. Matter of fact I had my own drive by debunker roll in recently. Totally tried to undermine more research but it all backfired on her. Couldn't figure out why after 40 years of knowing this woman she would try to pull something like this off. Did a bit more research and found out why. It fits right into the book I've been working on regarding the Hudson Valley UFO events. Mine is more personal with the people who live there and whose families have been there since the Dutch moved in. There is a lot to be scared of regarding the Hudson Valley and folks up there are curious and willing to talk but when situations like this crop up it really sours the milk. Sorry to hear about this credibility situation with Imbrogno but when Don Ecker gets his detective game on, it's on! Best, Greg ufomafia.com/blog Listen to 'Strange Days...
