To me it reads like a misinformation plot that was arranged to give Russia something to think about. Russia had the upper hand and there was growing fear that there were informants and infiltrators from Russia within our government and military organizations.
That's not to say there's not UFOs or aliens. Just feels like the version Corso tells isn't the full truth.
Also I don't feel that the book would have been allowed to be published if it contained unadulterated truth.
Grant Cameron's Charlie Red Star reads much more believable.
I haven't gone through the length of this thread yet.
But I wanted to get your thoughts on my perspective and find out if you had any other backstory on perhaps why his account included untruths. I haven't found anyone who could explain the various discrepancies.
I haven't found any evidence he was ever promoted to the rank of Colonel either.
Why this is important is "consider the source" in all things. If he's found wanting when it comes to credibility...I have a hard time believing.
