Roswell Dream Team?

Kevin Randle’s blog indicates that he, Tom Carey, and Don Schmitt have formed a “dream team” – no ego in that! – to re-open an investigation into Roswell – a cold-case kind of thing Randle writes.

Mr. Randle is as obsessed with Roswell as we are with Socorro and a few other UFO incidents.

We actually wish Randle et al. some success, as Roswell remains an open question; something happened near there in July 1947 and no one has really discerned what that something was. (Maybe it was just a minor event that has gotten blown up into a UFO mythos as Christopher Allen, Lance Moody, and French UFO researcher, Gilles Fernandez, among others, believe)

That said, let me tell you that Anthony Bragalia should have been invited to join the dream team. He is one researcher who has discovered some important Roswell minutiae over the past few years.

Moreover, Anthony Bragalia has recently found some revelatory and truly significant material – no, not about nitinol (that so-called memory metal).

If what Mr. Bragalia has found turns out to be as real as it seems to be, Roswell may become as relevant, as some think it is, to the UFO enigma.

I cannot disclose what Mr. Bragalia has uncovered in his exhaustive research; that is for him to do.

But I assure you, that what he’s stumbled upon is not trivial and opens cans of worms that will cause some in the government, if its disclosed, to fill their pants with merde. I do not exaggerate here.

So, dream team? Without Bragalia it’s just dreaming…



  • Absolutely!!! I couldn't agree more. A true "Dream Team" would include Tony, no doubt about it.

  • Thanks, Bob:

    I'm sure Mr. Bragalia will appreciate your sentiments.

  • Hardly objective research since the Dream Team members have pretty much staked their Ufological careers on Roswell being an extraterrestrial event. What do you think are the chances of any objective research? My thoughts are slim to none.

    Absent Mr. Bragalia's releasing his discoveries, there's nothing proven. If he never releases his info or isn't willing to supply whatever evidence he has to reputable, independent scientific researchers, than again, nothing proven.

  • PG:

    I agree with your view(s) pretty much.

    The Roswell Dream Team seems to be inherently predilected to the ET explanation for Roswell.

    But one would hope they can objectify their research, a hard thing to do after being hard-wired toward an extraterrestrial explanation for so long.

    Mr. Bragalia is stymied by the resticence or fear of those with concrete "evidence" -- that is, some witnesses are fearful of government reprisals of a serious kind, like that which happened to the older woman with the Moon rocks, recently in the news and recounted here a few posts ago.

    One has to take into account, getting back to the so-called dream team, that money is a major factor for those fellows, all being short of same, never really capitalizing on their effort and personal expenses.

    Yes, they got some monies from lectures and books they've written, but those monies have long ago dissipated, and ufology today is even more miserly as a source of income or revenue for anyone, no matter how famous or notorious they are among UFO cognoscenti.

    (These guys don't want to get real jobs.)

  • Greetings friends,

    I dont think the term "dream team" is correct to caracterize those people.
    Mainly taking into account and just for one example the lack of methodology when they drive interview.
    One illustration have should be find and evident in the transcribed interview conducted by Tony with Alfred O'Donnel in May 2011 (see http://bragalia.blogspot.com/2011/05/area-51-book-exposed-source-for-roswell.html .)

    I think that in my humble carreer of cogntive psychologist interrested by the cognitive interview method (used in criminology mainly), I have rarely read an interview with so much guided/oriented questions driving to the wished answer, ad hoc speculation, suggestion / suggestibility, etc. (of course, that's not deliberatly, but such variables aren't controled).

    I imagine how it is by Schmitt and Carey regarding interviews! All of it is a "big catastrophe" regarding how works interview in cognitive psychology, criminology, ethnology, etc. How much bad standards here... Sorry, but thta's ufology and it is a pity.
    I'm more "confident" about Kevin Randle who is probably the more "skeptic" one in the team for my humble opinion (that's just relative with the others, of course).

    On the other hand, I share the opinion and I have no doubt that they are a dreamteam in terms of storytellers! And Tony is one of them, for sure, and must be included.

    Anyway, such UFO investigators will never not be considered as serious researchers for social sciences due to the lack of the standards (mainly, but not only).
    A dream team would have been constitued by anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, historians, etc to conduct the research, and at least to establich standard and dign cognitive interview protocoles (among others the serious methodological problems of our storytellers).

    Well, I'm dreaming ;)

    Best Regards,
    Gilles Fernandez

  • Gilles,

    You are a tough nut!

    But you are right about methodologies.

    However, no reputable or qualified scientist will touch Roswell, and rightfully so...it's a guagmire of nonsense, lies, and disinformation by everyone, and what would a scientist garner from studying the incident(s)?

    So, let's allow the "dream team" to do its "magic."

    They are ufologists, UFO dowsers.

    They can do no (more) harm.

    They might even find something that counts.

    And their new effort will keep them, for a while, from mucking up other significant UFO sightings.

  • Sigh..the dream team seeks a dream. Aside from the self congratulatory moniker, this film is now playing in second run venues alongside Bugs Bunny cartoons. Perhaps they should acquire a Ouija board and reexamine now dead witnesses. It's sounds like a tale from the old gentleman's smoking room in the Explorers club, entertaining themselves while adorned with pith helmets. Well, if that is their best shot at "solving" a now long dead event that was at best an intelligence pipe dream., I say have at it..and pass the brandy.

  • Bruce:

    Let's let those UFO coots have their fun.

    They might come up with something, mighten they?

  • Overhear at the Explorer's Club..as I attempted to remove a hair from the end of my nose.

    "Osgood..pass the brandy and Ill tell you when aliens were aliens..all that blather about parallel universes gives me horrendous gas,oh, give me exotic metals any time,heavy metals, give me official typeface "
    "Colonel, you look as though you are about to have a coronary!"
    "Ill give you a coronary when you see my new top secret clue..to the martian contraptions..they are the damn point you witless dolt, you subgenius."

  • While everyone here seems to be more so busy telling Messrs Randle, Carey, and Schmitt to wake up and go to sleep, arn't we missing the MEAT of Rich's post. GOOD GOD MAN!!!! What the hell are you "on" about concerning Anthony Bragalia here? Does everyone know except for me? What the heck could Anthony Bragalia have that could be so,so....so Roswell dream substantiating!? It's not even the weekend yet and I'm already going manic minus the depression.

  • They could incorporate Bragalia, David Rudiak and maybe the old warhorse Stan Friedman into this 'dream team'. But why not Nick Redfern also? And so on.

    The more you have in the team the sooner they will have the inevitable splits and bust-ups. Result: nothing is achieved.

    Nothing of value will be achieved anyway, if you want to be serious. Nothing useful to the scientific establishment anyway. But perhaps a bit more fodder for ufology.

  • Christopher...

    Bragalia has already been added to the "team."
