Get well soon, Billy.

During the Hearing, Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick said the following: “I want to underscore today, that only a small percentage of UAP reports display signatures that could reasonably be described as anomalous.”

Dr. Kirkpatrick — those are the only objects we, the UFO researchers, are interested in — the UFOs.

Yeah, it's a little like a press release saying, "The Lusitania just took a torpedo to the starboard bow, but the rest of the hull is performing splendidly."

I just read this for the first time, Billy. Very sorry to hear you are having to undergo these procedures. It sounds pretty damned terrible. Fortunately though, prostate cancer, of all the cancers, has the best outcome. But the very word, 'cancer' is scary, and I feel for you on that score and hope you feel better soon.

Understand completely how you feel about 'official disclosure.' I am tired of it and not getting any younger myself.

Saying a prayer for a good result too Billy.

I was more than miffed about the peer review journal comment too. Like any journal would print 'suggestive' evidence alone, or consider one or more highly strange UAP cases to be 'suitable' material.

The dodgiest bit was his 'ultimate success' implied criteria: Currently using multiple agencies to identify all UAP which then allows individual branches of the military or other agencies to identify any subsequent UAP event by themselves (with a cheat-sheet one presumes). Would the 3 nights at Rendlesham fall within the limits of a simple lookup table, or the Cash-Landrum case, or any number of other highly *exceptional* cases including those identified my the likes of Hynek and McDonald?

It strongly suggests that Kirkpatrick, like his predecessor Dr Condon, already has his conclusions.

Would love to know how Kirkpatrick was vetted for the job. Someone with deep background knowledge of the issue would've been a more logical choice, like former UAPTF director Jay Stratton.

Whoever was involved in the selection process, didn't appear to be searching for someone with an open mind, or even someone who expected to come across highly complex cases.

What are the odds that he *hasn't* assessed the Nimitz case, given it's significance to the current political situation... And if he has then his rhetoric indicates that he must consider it human tech - not even as an 'undecided'.

Putting someone like that in charge, doesn't happen by accident. Forget possibilities of ET, I expect this guy could easily misattribute a UAP event by oversimplifying or ignoring evidence while still believing he was doing a great job. If I were Gillibrand, I'd already be pushing to have him kicked off AARO.

Billy I have no clue if you're a religious man or not but there's a whole lot of people out there saying prayers for you. We're all pulling for you.

Sorry to hear of the cancer situation, hopefully it can be mitigated. The AARO hearing was really disappointing mostly that there were so few questions asked that would put Kirkpatrick to task. With really only two persons asking the questions and questions that seemed anemic at best Kirkpatrick got thru the hearing unscathed with his prepared remarks and answers. It could be that he is being managed either covertly or directly to move the ball in the direction that these objects are of human adversarial origin never mind the history that might say otherwise. Our military industrial complex would love this. However it was the weak and or tepid Congressional interaction that really disappointed me.
