Oh well, I never heard of Jay Miller. I have to wonder why Annie
Jacobsen have an opinion about Roswell. At least, because she
claims to be an investigative journalist, she documents her
sources and they are viable - people who were affiliated with
Area 51 and Lockheed.

Let's be real clear about the myth of Roswell: all opinions are
based on rumors, second, third, fourth hand testimonies, so-
called "death bed" confessions, etc., etc. BUT, there isn't a
shred of anything to support any theory. So, the tale is up for
grabs. I think Jacobsen's opinion is just as valid's as any that
has gone before hers. She is just more created and very much
outside the box of the ufo orthodoxy.
