I normally don’t post unattributed and/or anonymous quotes about anything but the following was sent to me by Ken Smith, a friend of the person who requested that his name and company not be published. Ken and I have been in communication since September of last year and he gave me permission to use his name. I independently verified the identity of the person quoted below and the company he now works for:
“Before I became a Rehired Annuitant agent, I was contacted by a (now former) friend of mine who became a regional director for MUFON. He and I had worked together on a project related to Area 51 and he was always asking leading questions about 51’s activities. When I retired from Federal service and before I came to (company redacted), my friend and I had lunch and he wanted to recruit me. The offer was enticing until he related that most of MUFON’s public information was intentionally bogus or redacted to the point that the common person would be interested in their reports and not challenge it. I plainly told him that I report what I see and hear and that I have never manufactured information for the sake of notoriety. He fired back that MUFON is a respected organization, which has conducted valid investigations, but the completed investigations have never been released as the U.S. State Dept. and the CIA basically control this activity. Financial connection? – You bet.”
P.S. As was the case with the previous posts regarding MUFON, this one is also forwarded to over 60 MUFON members. They are certainly free to rebut, question, challenge all of this information. Of course they are also free to do the same concerning MUFON. Maybe now we better understand why an organization – in business for 45 years – has completely failed to present/publish anything of substance pertaining to the field that they claim to research, investigate, study and for which they…collect money from their members.
