I understand. The article in question though does argue the
Roswell Incident and that is a point of criticism against Annie
Jacobsen. Really that criticism should be focused on her source,
the EG&G engineer, or sources plural if there were many. Ms.
Jacobsen didn't make the story up, she was told it, she thought
it was true and thus reported it.

>The ETH is another argument entirely.

It's really not another argument entirely. That would be like
saying the Stalin-Mengele hypothesis (should we call it the
SMH?) is another argument entirely. There is inter-relatedness
between all of this, it's all inter-connected.

It could be. It could be nothing. I don't know what S-4 is, I
don't even know IF it is. That's not the testimony of the
insider, the EG&G engineer, though. As the EG&G employee relates
that S-4 is both the designation of an actual facility and a
project name. If Robert Lazar was the first to mention S-4, and
it seems he was, is this a feeding back of false information?

Even with good background material, UFO research is stigmatized
and very often considered nonsence and psuedoscience, lumped
together with crypto-zoology, hoaxes, frauds the like of which
one would expect from 19th/20th century spiritualism.


Sincerely,
