Roswell Blunders


I've stopped touting Kevin Randle's latest book, for personal reasons...

But I have to tell you that his pages it it about his Roswell investigation goes a long way to showing how early UFO investigators -- Randle among them and foremost -- screwed up the story, with unintentional and stupid influence(s) on empty-headed "witnesses."

Also, how interviews weren't taped or botched.

And how Mr. Randle's abrasive demeanor often curtailed testimony from key participants.

Randle is not alone in the gaffes and inept procedures.

Others, who were quick to jump on the Roswell bandwagon, had motivations that were not pristine or ethical.

Mr. Randle is not among that crowd, but his failures were many, and I think his "Dream Team" effort is a mea culpa and/or attempt at some kind of salvation.

If you want an enlightening view of how Roswell got to where it is today, get the book.

  • Rich,

    I would love to see you expand upon this.

    I think that I might shockingly be more generous to Kevin. Like most everyone in the "field", Kevin probably got involved as a hobby. It's easy to make mistakes as when you have to make it up as you go along.

    So I don't fault him for mistakes.

    Denying the impact of those mistakes (not just Kevin's but everyone in on the story) is what makes the Roswell story extra dubious.

    But regardless, the methods of Kevin compared to some of his "dream team" make him look like Nobel prize winner.

    I'm not inclined to give Kevin any more attention than I have.

    This for reasons I don't wish to go into.

    But the fluffs he mentions, in his book, are egregious.

    That's not a "tout" -- just an observation.

    Smile back.
