It looks like Brad Sparks' review of Corso isn't on-line any more (I'm
pretty sure it used to be). But I found another guy Tom Mahood reviewing it
(who I don't know), and he also makes some excellent points against Corso.
See http://www.ufomind.com/area51/list/1997/jun/a24-002.shtml . By the way, Sparks remains firmly pro-Roswell, he just thinks that Corso's book was a
I don't know. Paola Harris met Corso and thinks not. There was a second writer who Corso I think wound up suing. The hoax parts were apparently put in by the other guy?
The weakest part of the book concerns the claims about alien technology transfer, but maybe that, or at least the spin, was planted by the ghostwriter? You know like "WMD in Iraq can launch against US in 45 minutes" for example? ;-) They had us all believing that for awhile. I believed it.
My opinion of Corso's book is based on a few key things he says that "ring true" to my intuition. This is far from rigorous proof of any kind of course.
1. Crew artificial AI fits my 1953 "experience" in
That really happened. Now what was really on the other end of the
telephone I do not know.
2. Control of craft via brain waves.
3. Inside of ship is virtually "empty" no massive engines, no kitchens, no toilets, i.e., nano-tech & star gate virtual
instant transportation perhaps to brane world next door across a small distance in hyperspace?
4. Time travel - they come from the future again that fits what happened to me in 1953 when the alleged ET AI said what would happen in 1973 when in fact I met Hal Puthoff et-al as part of the CIA funded SRI RV project as Saul-Paul tells it in my book "Destiny Matrix". We even have a 90 minute tape of part of my
meeting with Hal Puthoff, Russell Targ, Brendan O Regan, et-al arranged by Jacques Vallee who did not show up - curious. My 1953 contact is discussed on that tape. Jim Hurtak also mentioned. All very odd no matter how you cut it. How I got there is bizzare. It's all in my book "Destiny Matrix."
5. My current physics consistent with Corso's Big Picture including recent trickle of new communications with Hal Puthoff.
i.e. physics in
in the light of the amazing surprise of "dark energy" since ~ 1999 The Right Stuff to Make Star Trek Real IMHO.

I don't know which is less believable, Corso or his critics below! "Armen Victorian" (I've heard that's a pseudonym, his real name is supposed to be Henry Azadehdel) has been peddling CIA mind-control and other wild conspiracies for many years. You'd better put on your tinfoil hat for this one! I think he critiques Corso on the grounds that "if people believe your conspiracy, they won't believe mine!". The claim about the " fifty surviving garrisons of East European paramilitary units still hanging on in West Germany" in 1956 is awfully hard to believe."
Thanks. My impression also. :-)
"As for Zetatalk, I presume you are aware that this is material "channeled" from the Zetans by Nancy Lieder. She predicted that the earth would flip over on its axis this past May 15. If it did, I must have missed it."
I don't pay attention to obvious nonsense.
"Perhaps you are aware that Brad Sparks, who as you know is a big UFO proponent"
No, I nevah hoid of da bum. Pardon my Brooklyn.
"and longtime foe of Phil Klass, has written a long and factual debunking of Corso's claims. It was published in, believe it or not, the Skeptical Inquirer, probably because no pro-UFO magazine wanted to run it.
