Gentlemen; It occurs to me that you may not be entirely aware of the dishonest testimony published by Robert Salas and Robert Hastings, who have lied about these UFO incidents for years. Please take note of the discussions regarding the incidents they have proposed on the two URLs http://www.scribd.com/doc/26641522/Americans-Credulous-by-James-Carlson and http://www.realityuncovered.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1688&p=25070#p25070 . Problems inherent to their claims indicate that both men have invented a number of incidents. Very best regards, James Carlson firstname.lastname@example.org Albuquerque, NM
So interesting when big time names drop by my no account anti-skeptoid blog; James Randi even left me a comment over there once! Wow. After letting Carlson know "I'm a dame," and not a male member of some anti-skeptoid gentlemen's club, I added that I knew of allegations, duh. I assumed he meant the usual, and after reading, okay, more like skimming for now, his I dunno, 5,000 plus? work on events surrounding Robert Salas and Hastings, ... you just have to look at it yourself. Here's what Billy Cox at Devoid had to say about Carlson's work on his blog: 'Nukes debate gets personal.' (By the way, Cox says the work is 357 pages, it just seemed like 5,000 plus.)
The latest round of a blistering, two-year cyber-debate between UFO researcher Robert Hastings and the son of nuclear missile silo commander clanged into De Void’s e-mailbox last week. That’s when James Carlson, whose father Eric was ranking officer at a launch control facility in 1967 when 10 ICBMs mysteriously went offline, dropped a 357-page bomb.
And. . .
Anyhow, at the end of the day, amid the endless and enervating well of anger dominating the news cycles from Capitol Hill to Main Street, Carlson just gets lost in the crowd. That’s because he calls his online tome: “Americans, Credulous, or The Arrogance of Congenital Liars & Other Character Defects.” He dismisses those who disagree with him as “fools, idiots and liars,” among other things. Yawn. Click.
That's pretty much how I felt as I looked over the piece. Frank Warren, who is nobody's fool, and obviously among the serious UFO researchers, has a lot about this on his UFO Chronicles; be sure to scroll down to the responses to Carlson. I'm not an expert by any means in this area; not at all! But a couple of things scream at me "something's not right here girlie girl" and that's: Carlson's obsessive, kind of on the pathological side tone, and, the fact his father was an officer at a launch facility, as Cox points out.
