Should Truth Be Delayed?

There comes a time when those of us who've worked as journalists have to confront those who would delay or deny thruths, about themselves, about things they know, and about things we all should know.

This goes to the issue of Roswell and other UFO events, which are being used a ciphers by a certain few, with the excuse being that investigation and research need time to mature, time to evolve, or time to make sense.

And there comes a time when those of us, who have a journalistic background and who have information that should be in the public arena, no matter how gotten, need to step up and divulge what we know and maybe how we know it.

Bruce Duensing provides a news item about reporter Seymour Hersh, the noted journalist and reportorial gadfly that leads us to consider whether or not we should out information that some now have but hold in abeyance for reasons inscrutable or self-serving.

  • The hardline on this is that truth delayed is truth denied, but this seem an implausible standard to hold any investigative endeavour to. However, indulgence has to have its limits.

  • To me, an example of a similar situation occurred when Hynek was on vacation and Vallee discovered what became known as the "Pentacle Memorandum"
    Later the author was determined to be H.C. Cross of Battelle Memorial Institute, Battelle's liaison with the Air Force for Blue Book-related matters.

    The point was to dummy up the report.

    Had this information been released, it certainly would have been interesting.

    Hynek did not want to upset his sources.

  • I agree, but consider even the news... "Horrible gunfight kills family, stay tuned for details..." And then they show you commercials while you're on the edge of your seat. Even the news is just filler between the advertisements nowadays.

  • Bruce-

    HC Cross also supervised Elroy John Center, co-author of the first memory metal report for Battelle, who later confessed to analyzing ET metal.

  • Bruce:

    You should not have mentioned the Battelle Institute, the reason being that you risk reigniting the nitinol debate - a topic so beloved of Tony Bragalia.

    Nitinol was the stuff back-engineered (so we are told) from the strange metals found at you know where.

    I was concerned an overlay of a certain subject within a subject would be a deflection of Rich's post into the wild blue yonder of inferences.
    Of course the backdrop to this is my own view of any photograph as a conclusive argument to this prolonged fool's errand is that it will only create more hot air.
