What I think is interesting is how hard he's being slammed before anyone reads the first book of the trilogy with Lavenda. I prefer to let the
information stand or fall on its own merits in this case. There is no sense calling BS prior to actually digging in to the info.
We've been through several TD discussions on the boards here, and before Wikileaks people were absolutely positive he didn't have any real
contacts, followed by "it's just for the money."
In those threads, it was also established that TD has sunk a LOT of his own money into all of this and that he will be very very lucky to even recoup
his outlay. (Don't take my word for it, see the ATS site owner's posts, Springer, who has spoken directly with Tom and who knows Knapp.)
I don't know if the book will make all things mind-blowingly clear or if it will put nails in the coffin of TD's Ufology career, but what I am
absolutely sure if, is that I don't have enough information yet to determine that.
Honestly, I get why people are so down on it because the UFO community has been jerked around so much, and has been led down the garden path, so to
speak, by so very many people that the Truth could smack us all in the face and we'd give it a sarcastic "yeah right, ya big faker!"
It is a jaded and self-protective group of folks. And even if the truth is delivered on a silver platter, it will be endlessly debated and
deconstructed as well as flippantly debunked. That is just what happens. There seems to be some folks who take pride in crying "debunked!" faster than
anyone else. It is always going to be that way.
I don't mind that TD is marketing a book he really wants people to read. Marketing is just part of life when you write a book or do a movie or other
big media kind of thing.
I did not hear the interview, so I can't speak directly to it.
After reading the book, in my opinion, the real debate can begin.
