Although you admit to not knowing who I am and what I am about,
you lodge an attack that is unwarranted. And, why, because
Jacobsen wrote a book, got interviewed in most major news
sources and I supported her efforts. I even suggested that the
Tale of Roswell was up for grabs because there is no evidence
proving anything conclusive. It is why there are countless books
written about an event that happened in 1947.

I have no idea what you mean by the fact I "don't have the
chops." Does that mean I just go along my merry way and don't
respond to this kind of criticism.

If I had to guess, you are basing your opinion on the fact that
I called you out on your knowledge of Raytheon's projects for
the Air Force. I even provided the name of the individual I got
my information from. The guy didn't return your phone calls?
However, you did discover that he worked in the capacity I cited
proving that I do "have the chops." If that means I am able to
back up my opinion with hard data, then, yes, I have the chops.
If only you knew.

In the future, I will respond to requests for more information,
but I find these kinds of confrontations without merit.

Anything I have challenged in this community of interested
parties does have merit and needs to be addressed. Some changes
need to be made. It appears you are not one of the individuals
who is interested in revising their approach.

BTW, it appears to me that you only read the book review - with
link - that was posted here. I have to wonder if you are basing
your criticism of Jacobsen's work on that review. I have not
read the book, but my research leads me to keep an open mind on
the subject. And, to post my own opinions when the spirit moves

Peace out,
