Vallee on Sagan

Reading Colin Wilson's Alien Dawn, which I'm greatly enjoying. Excellent; it's been added to my list of books every saucer head should read.

Wilson had no trust or much respect for Carl Sagan, and in context of UFOs, this is understandable. Wilson refers to Sagan as an "…ambitious career scientist.."  A quote from Vallee on Sagan:

"If the saucers turn out to be significant, Sagan will take the credit for having theorized about cosmic visitors. If they are discredited, he will claim he always saw clearly through their mythical character." (Alien Dawn, p 112)
