Well we are in the last stages of getting the book into print. I’ll leave it to your imagination what the galley proofing of a 465 page book involving some fifty years of history and the extensive citation of military and intelligence documents involves. I wouldn’t recommend it for the faint of heart. Still looking for late June availability but it may be close to July.
In the meantime, I wanted to post an interview I did recently with my friend Doug of the Dallas Action. We have talked before about the challenges of vetting sources, of historical analysis and exactly how far you can and cannot go out on limbs when you engage in that sort of thing.
If you have ever been interested in both political assassination, especially in the context of the JFK, RFK or MLK cases and in the subject of UFOs as well, you have likely noticed that there are similar challenges and similar pitfalls in both areas of interest. You find disconnects between internal inquiries and official public positions. You find obfuscation, diversions, outright hoaxes, witness and source recall and vetting issues – and in both instances there are real world issues of classification, security and even counter intelligence activities.
After chatting a bit about Unidentified, Doug and I decided that it might be interesting to do a show about it but also to explore some of the crossover (no I don’t mean “Dark Skies” …if you missed that TV series look it up on the internet, conspiracy television fiction at its best). What I mean is crossover in terms of the challenges and how demanding it is to deal historically with subjects that many people consider “fringe” or worse and to do it in a manner which establishes some level of broader credibility.
If that sounds interesting, check out this link for the interview – and enjoy the burst of intense music that gets it going:
