Debunking requires some credulity and a lot of seriousness. The classical debunker thinks that the debunked believes in what he says, but this is not so. On the contrary, the “public figures” of Ufology and Exopolitics are intelligent enough to understand, after becoming professionals that the whole thing belongs to the industry of entertainment, and in the show business, the best show attracts more people (and money.)
In other words they sell a product regardless of their beliefs. The difference between fiction and fact is secondary for the market, and a book sells if it’s written following the public preferences.
The following comments about Richard Dolan, UFO historian and “dark journalist;” show the difference between debunking and watching the show.

Above Top Secret
“Richard Dolan is a Smart guy who believes stupid things without evidence.
Does the same mental and cognitive gymnastics other believers do.
Has some notoriety now because of some books, TV appearances on SciFi Channel, and now his own radio program.
So now that he's economically invested in the nonsense he will defend his cash cow and discount any disconfirming evidence as part of a conspiracy.”
Paul Kimball
“The key, however, is to make sure your speculation is grounded in evidence – that you can offer something to back it up beyond just saying “well, it could have happened.” A historian might not be able to prove something beyond a reasonable doubt, but he should be able to show that it was more likely than not that a certain thing happened.
With this in mind, an objective read of UFOs and the National Security State, on which Dolan’s reputation in the UFO field as a serious researcher is largely based, shows it to be nothing more than conspiracy theory masquerading as a serious historical study.”
“The Washington Post article makes Richard Dolan mad. He loses his nice guy image and writes: “This article is another shameful and absurd attempt by the Washington Post to debunk something that the publication has never, ever bothered to do the slightest bit of real investigation about.”
Of course, this is pure, unadulterated nonsense. Either Dolan doesn’t read the commentary, or he is blinded by his resentment.”
“I saw two of his books (National Security State series) listed as recommended reading recently in a thread here, and I thought, before reading his book, that he was a reasonable and well-regarded researcher in the UFO field. I have read through some of his book, and it's fraught with delusional conspiracies about Freemasons and Trilateralists. He also cites dubious sources like Jim Marrs (who himself doesn't source any of his claims. I've read one of his books--absolute crock).
Am I right to think that Dolan is unreliable? I can't see how someone can plan out a historical overview of the phenomenon if a lot of what he supplies are unverifiable anecdotes and questionable inclusions of transnational banking conspiracies.”
“The problem is that Richard Dolan appears to take all evidence at face value. He will quote Morris K. Jessup on an equal basis with Jacques Vallee. He will talk of Gray Barker on the same level as J. Allen Hynek. He puts Philip Corso at the same level as Jerome Clark. In other words, he does not seem to discriminate between sources. He considers them all valid. Rather than sifting through vast amounts of disinformation for the Truth, it’s more like he’s amassing a mound of evidence without regard to its veracity or corroboration. He doesn’t even allude to the possibility that there might be some problems with some of this evidence. The clowns are thrown in with the professors.
Dolan also comes to some dubious conclusions. It’s quite clear he believes James Forrestal was killed for his knowledge that he might spill the beans. And what about Ruppelt’s early death? No one dies of a heart attack at age 37. Hmmm. And James McDonald. Did he commit suicide, really, or was he murdered because he was getting too close to the secrets? This stuff is not corroborated at all. His standards of proof are way too low. This would not be allowed in academia. You wouldn’t be able to get away with this and be considered seriously.”
“I think it's important to remind everyone that Dolan's scholarship is not competently questioned _anywhere_ and it is largely uncontested, moreover... ...Excepted, that is to say, by a few more concerned with the disruption of their personal paradigms than chips falling where they may.
I disagree. Anyone who reads his book UFOs and the National Security State carefully will find that a lot of what he has written is anything but scholarly, especially his reliance on single, unreliable sources and his giving credence to wacko conspiracy theories. For more detailed criticism, read my review, which I wrote shortly after the book was published and is available here.
If Dolan has written any scholarly works, this book is not one of them. It is an example of a book written to provide entertainment rather than reliable information.”

UFO, disinformation programs and perspectives.

to me
Dear Mr. Fogg, thanks for your message and yes, truth is that there are several changes, (apparently, of course,) on the program of the PTB, (Powers That Be) concerning logistic, strategy or perhaps tactics in the UFO programs.

Basically there are at least three different approaches concerning the UFO-ET-C.A. scheme. The traditional is based on keeping things as they are. No changes. The second group of experts think that keeping the UFO mythology alive is a waste of time and money. The third one suggests some new approaches but, in my view, these are contradictory and in the end, ineffective.  

PTB show some interest in the Mexican event.  J.J.Hurtak was there, you see, and this is not casual. J.J.H. was indeed a big player in the UFO program and his presence in the Mexican "fiasco" seems to indicate that they will go on with the total non-sense approach. 

I don't want to give names but while the Hawaiian exopolitician remains a systematic "informant" and W. is lost in the swamp of pure conspiracy theory, the History Professor while attacks the old Exopolitics gives us contradictory statements in what looks like an agnostic posture. 

What is more than evident is that there is no more production of events. The times of the M.I.B. and abductions is gone. (After all the entertainment industry produces enough influential suggestions.)
This absence of events limits the professional ufologists resources, but in the PTB environment, nobody cares much about this.
Of course, there will be new attempts to sell the "disclosure" rhetoric and faked announcements of "imminence", but this is private production. Nothing official.
We must understand, Mr. Fogg, that  UFO fans are a small minority; so small that it doesn't justify waste of time and money.
I should say that the UFO-ET-CONSPIRACY mythology belongs to the Cold War Era. Our present is much more complex and problematic.

Richard Dolan now wants to "CLOSE" the Roswell slides Hoax.

No apologies Dolan?
Richard Dolan proclaims in Facebook his admiration for the apologies of Don Schmitt concerning his participation on  the Roswell Slides pathetic event, but while Don does apologize, Dolan declares the Roswell Slides hoax CLOSED.
It is easy to cheat and then show our "lack of interest".
It's easy to take people's money promising revelations and then "close" the event. 
To "close" this shameful event will not give you back what remained of your dubious credibility. 
An HONEST individual doesn't  to ask for $2O to the public IF HE IS NOT TOTALLY SURE ABOUT THE VALUE OF WHAT HE IS SELLING. 
Is not enough to admire the apologies of Don Schmitt, Richard Dolan. We are waiting your apologies an probably the cheated clients are waiting for the money back.
Also Dolan tells us that there is "much work to do",(in Ufology?) . Just inform us Richard about all that work. Perhaps rewrite thesame book again and again? Prepare another "event" with Maussan? Produce more talismans "balancing cosmic energy",or plastic aliens to sell to the future public?
No, Richard Dolan. People now knows whose your friends are and people knows also the "quality" of the fictions you sell.
"Just saw this message from Donald R. Schmitt regarding the so-called Roswell Slides. This had to be hard for him to write, and he has my sympathy and respect. I know without a doubt that his intentions, and those of Tom Carey, were sincere. As everyone knows, I supported the idea that the slides were interesting enough that they deserved more investigation. Well, they got it. In my opinion, the matter of the slides is CLOSED. If others wish to debate the physiology of the body, let them. I have no more interest in this matter and fully believe we can and will move on. There remains much work to do. RD."
From Don Schmitt:
"It would seem like I've been here before... Asking my friends and colleagues to accept my sincerest apology for my participation in the recent event in Mexico City. I accept full responsibility for the fact that I allowed myself to be drawn into this situation, albeit with the best of intentions, I sacrificed my better judgement by being overly trusting when I should have known better. As one strives to make up for the mistakes of the past, there are times that emotions cause one to outrun their headlights. In my case, I ran it right off the road. Through the years I have worked hard to earn back your respect and confidence in my work only to presently jeopardize it all. For that I am especially remorseful. I am afraid that after spending almost half of my life devoted to one specific investigation, I allowed the allure of final resolution cloud my skeptical nature to be replaced by a false vision of hope. I now realize that the image in the slides is a mummy as specified by the display placard. At this time I consider the matter concluded and intend on moving forward. My only desire is that you try to understand that I never willfully did anything to mislead or misrepresent what I thought was the truth and I only acted with the best of objectives. Still, if I have offended or hurt anyone through my participation in this event, you have my deepest apology and have every right to hold it against me. When the truth finally was made known to all of us, I realized that I could only blame myself for not only failing you, but more sadly, failing myself. I must do better. And with God's help and your understanding, I promise I will.
Donald R. Schmitt"



Will the hoaxers refund money?

Dolan wrong as usual.
"...those promoting the photos as authentic, such as Jaime Maussan, the Mexican UFO expert who orchestrated the conference, insisted that it could not possibly be a mummy. A Reuters news story featured video of UFO proponent Richard Dolan at the conference claiming, without providing any documentation, that experts had ruled out the mummy explanation: “Analysis of the body … suggested this is not a mummy and not a human, not a mammal and not a model.”
Finally the truth was revealed when a slide of the image was examined and “A member of The Roswell Slides Research Team used a newly acquired source image of the placard seen in front of the body. By manipulating the commercial software, SmartDeblur, he managed to significantly clear up the blurred text.” The sign in front of the “Roswell alien” reads: “Mummified Body of Two Year Old Boy.”
Will hoaxers give the money back?
It is followed by a mostly-legible short description of the piece and concludes, as many museum signs do, with an acknowledgement stating that it was loaned by a man in San Francisco.
An identical photo was later found with the complete information: “Mummified Body of Two Year Old Boy. At the time of burial the body was clothed in a slip-over cotton shirt. Burial wrappings consisted of three small cotton blankets. Loaned by Mr. S. L. Palmer, San Francisco, California.”
