The Scoriton Affair

This blog posted, in 2007, a piece on the 1965 Scoriton episode:


Several other bloggers took that posting and reproduced it, intact, without attribution, a common ethical lapse among UFO bloggers:

Silvio Namastre in...

Irene Croutville in ...

And ...

But that's not the point of this posting.

Eileen Buckle was solicited, by Gary Taylor, one of the original RRRGroup fellows, to work with us but then we became embroiled in the brouhaha between Ms. Buckle and Norman Oliver, who, Ms. Buckle was quick to demean.

Norman Oliver sent us his take on the scuffle with Ms. Buckle and his observations about the Scoriton affair:
While Gary was handling the matter, he got my friend Lucius Farish somewhat involved:
(You can read Lucius' letter by mousing over it and clicking it.)

But the whole matter is complicated by Bosco Nedelcovic's assertion that the Scoriton incident was a CIA and military psy-op (covered in Nick Redfern's book Contactees).

I had been hesitant to promote the psy-op allegation of Nedelcovic, but once it was shown that he was, indeed, a CIA operative working as a translator for the U.S. military and an A.I.D. staffer who was in Brazil during the Vilas-Boas "abduction" and apparently had access to files or information on the Scoriton event, I've taken an interest in both the Vilas-Boas story and the almost forgotten but intriguing Scoriton tale.

You might find Scoriton interesting also, even the dust-up between Ms. Buckle and Mr. Oliver, both credible and nice persons outside of their disageement(s).

    Could you please post a link to the original Nedelcovic article you wrote in 2006 that had a copy of the letter from Nedelcovic. I shall be visiting Hawson Farm cottage, the location of the encounter next month.

    I'd have a hard time finding that link but you might look for it using the search bar atop this blog (the left-upper corner) or the RRRGroup.blogspot.com blog

    Input "Scoriton" and if the link is online you'll find it.
