I certainly agree that the Project was worth the effort. Let me
clarify for some who aren't aware of details, this was not a
"filming" effort, per se. It was an effort to monitor
environmental levels, and not to get a picture. There have been
a few cases where video cameras were set up to monitor potential
abductions, but the AMP project was attempting to add measurable
data to the anecdotal landscape.  To avoid the issue of having
someone tamper with the system, the variables being monitored
were not disclosed beyond a few people, and the data was
automatically phoned to a central location daily, where it was
gathered for later analysis when the daily logs were obtained.

The concern that I would have in releasing the raw data (if that
was permissible under privacy requirements) is that it doesn't
appear to show anything clearly and it would give a lot of data
for everyone to draw their own conclusions as they pick and
choose among the data points in question. The validity of this
project rested in the fact that a disinterested third party
would perform the analysis, and not someone involved in the
genre.

To be honest, it was very difficult trying to find subjects for
this study, which caused it to drag out and cost more than it
should have.  Of course, there were also equipment failures and
other issues that delayed completion. The individual who was
funding the UFO Research Coalition (primarily for this project)
became less and less interested as time wore on, and in the end
he decided enough was enough.

While I helped set up the detection system and take initial
measurements for one subject, I have not been intimately
involved in it.
