Where is the UFO "wow factor"?

Frank Warren’s UFO blog has an interview with a colonel who says he saw a UFO crash in Mexico some years ago:

Notice how blasé the aged colonel is as he relates his tale.

When NASA scientists and technicians land a rover on Mar or achieve some other outer space deployment, they, en masse, get giddy and child-like in their enthusiasm.

NASA, and other achievers (such as Olympic winners and their families) become hyper-emotional during and after their feats. The élan infects bystanders and participants alike,

But when flying saucer observers, and the Roswell contingent in particular, like the colonel above, remain unenthused, prosaic, and typically example a severe case of ennui, even though they say they’ve experienced something profound, transcendental.

Joseph Capp, a peripheral ufologist, exalts UFO witnesses; they are the crème de la crème of the UFO community he thinks.

But why are those witnesses so becalmed in the wake of their potential epiphanous experiences?

Where’s the élan that the NASA people exhibit when they partake in things that have much less of a “wow factor” than a UFO sighting or crash (with alien bodies)?

Just as we promote the idea that Truman, alleged MJ-12 members, military personnel, and other government operatives remained too ordinary after they saw UFO debris and bodies from flying saucer accidents, in Roswell and other places, so too do we challenge the psychological aftermath of UFO witnesses and abductees.

If they’ve all experienced what they say they’ve experienced, and they are not suffering a kind of war-like stress syndrome, or mentally acute state of denial, these people are creative automatons, with stories that don’t make sense in the light of their apathetic recounting of their stories.

It just doesn’t make psychological sense.

So, the Roswell “witnesses,” Betty and Barney Hill, Travis Walton, Frank Warren’s colonel,et al. can be dismissed, entirely, despite the attempt by Joseph Capp and others to gild them with laurel wreaths.

Their passivity has done them in…..
