George Knapp wasn't some green horned journalist at the time, and neither was the station decision makers. If they had smelled something funny, they would have passed on this piece.
The "Promise" where was it at the time, and where is it today?

Did the people at A51 need to bring attention to the base for some reason? What reason?
Is Area 51 dominated by a particular aerospace company, like Northrup? Calling attention to it might throw a monkey wrench into their machinery there, squelch some of their R&D there and mess up some contracts that could go to other companies. Might have boiled down to nothing more than some corporate espionage. After all, there is only billions of dollars at stake.
Another scenario might have to do with what happened when Area 51 achieved its notoriety. It was allowed to expand its territory and grab a lot more of the local land. Same kind of thing happened with Vandenberg AFB after 9/11. They swooped in and claimed and closed several beaches to the north of the base supposedly in an effort to decrease the chance of spies hanging out there. It's just all part of an ongoing, long-game land acquisition plan.
Bob could be singular and his story may have nothing to do with the overall ufo-myth-ology. He may have just appropriated bits of it for his own tale.

He contacted hypnotherapist Layne Keck of Serenus Clinical Hypnosis in Las Vegas because there were a couple of days where he remembered only going out in a plane and coming back, but nothing in between. He suspected mind-control had been performed on him.
Under hypnosis, Lazar recalled intense drilling, threatening actions taken against him, and his drinking of “pine” which the hypnotherapist said was similar to the “Orion Method” of regimented hypnosis used by the military.
His main role was to further define the Element 115 which was the primary “fuel” in the reactor and also whose strong nuclear force extended beyond the perimeter of the nucleus (unlike any other element in the Periodic Table) and was used to counter gravity.
Lazar said he and other scientists read briefings which alleged that the alien vehicles he saw close up in the camouflaged hangers came from “another world: the 4th planet out from the Zeta Reticulum binary star system”

I think he's saying we just have our physics wrong and it's gravity holding them together. I hope it is proven correct soon! I so want to ride in a starship before I die
