Kevin Randle: Detective par excellence

Kevin Randle, in his effort(s) to cleanse the Roswell record of falsehoods or erroneous materials has provided at his blog -- kevinrandle.blogspot.com-- an expository recounting of one Lieutenant Colonel Richard E. French who is a distinguished military man that Mr. Randle has interacted with, but who [the Lt. Colonel] seems to have confabulated parts of his career.

Lieutenant Colonel French has, according to Mr. Randle, inserted bogus information about involvement with Roswell, the MJ-12 documents, fellow officer Lieutenant Colonel Philip Corso, et cetera.

The sordid confabulations sadden and trouble Mr. Randle, but it's part of the vetting process he (and his Dream Team) are in the midst of re: Roswell.

Kudos to Kevin Randle for his journalistic foray. It offers hope for the coming Roswell denouement.



  • Rich, I had posted a comment at Randle's site.

    Sad that a highly decorated brother officer had to be exposed in such away, yet grateful that Kevin mentioned that this poor soul had a very distinguished career.

    We sometimes succumb to our dark sides for what ever the reasons...

  • Randle, on the few times I met him, was always pretty cool, though inclined towards an unexpected minor prank...somewhat inspired by Loki the Trickster, perhaps....so one might then begin to understand how he and Schmitt worked so well together for such a significant period...

    (My reading of Civil War history far exceeds my dabbling in flying saucers, so both these guys remind me of honorable Blue and/or Gray officers...)

    So this year, over two decades after they began, I remain confident in their sincere personal best efforts towards investigation.

    (But, unlike a theoretical Redfernesque entity, these two are only humsn and subject to the corresponding frailties.)

    (So I will gladly point out their every misstep)

    (Professor Bragalia's too)

    ...such as accepting executive management of their initial Roswell efforts from the Boys of CUFOS....

  • What 'denouement' are you talking about? I thought we were expecting something real and positive, not a 'denouement'.

  • Denouement -- the solution or outcome of a literary work, play, et cetera.

    Even a myth.

  • The question is not about who lied but who told the truth? Count up the number of liars in this old story. Then, ask yourself, why did so many lie? Is this some sort of record breaking number of liars surrounding a single event? If so, why?

  • Bruce:

    There are/were liars on the 'other side' too (i.e. if you want to accept the erudite wrtings of David Rudiak and his ilk).

    Among these liars are:

    1.McAndrew (disinformation officer)
    2.Richard Weaver (ditto)
    3.General Ramey (lied to the FBI and the press as part of the cover-up)
    4.Charles Moore (phoney trajectory plus other lies in his report)
    5.Jesse Marcel sr (partially lied as part of the cover-up)
    6.Cavitt (said he wasn't there when he was, or vice-versa according to viewpoint).
    7.Bond Johnson, the photographer (but this could be just confusion on his part).
    8.Probably Brazel himself, when he told the press he tried to make a kite out of the sticks, etc.).
    9.Countless liars in the Pentagon and the CIA in the decades ever since, with their pronouncements on UFOs.

    The liars you mention were those on one side of the story. If you add together the liars on both sides you may well exceed the record.

    No wonder the 'truth' is so elusive!

  • A few more?

    By Blogger Bruce Duensing, at Friday, August 16, 2013  

  • All I see is another misdirection.

    French is a soft target with a story full of holes, and yet Randle's denouncement of him engendered the desired Pavlovian drooling in the comments section from dullard sceptics.

    He's wasting your time with ufological fag-ends, errant minutiae, obfuscatory detours; his blog is a dead-end by design.

  • Now, now Ross,

    There may be a method to his madness, or just plain madness.

    I have no idea which...


    By Blogger RRRGroup, at Friday, August 16, 2013  

  • RRRGRoup,

    Alas, just madness to his method.

    By Blogger Ross, at Friday, August 16, 2013  

  • Good work by Kevin, and it illustrates an important point, that military personnel are no more or less inclined to be honourable and truthful than the general population. Their claims need to be judged based on the ability to verify the claims themselves, and not the background of the person making them.

  • Ross,

    So in layman's term, Randle's blog is no better than a street side setup of "Three Card Monty."

    You may be right...

    BTW, not all of the dullard skeptics were drooling over French. Read my post on Kevin's site...

  • Tim,

    Still, you missed the target

    The Ramey memo, the geologists and their field notes, the Nun's tale, and DARC.

    Something momentous happened in New Mexico in 1947, but it was lost to the credulity of the age. The confused chatter of Roswellians unearthed a body of evidence suggestive of something significant, but the details were sufficiently obscured that a cohesive narrative failed to emerge.

    Team Dream have evidence which significant completes the story, but the vainglorious desire to have it all on their terms means Randle can offer readers of his blog nothing but very old news.

    Cineri gloria sera venit
