This thread is not about Russia being involved with Roswell and it really has no relevance either.
When UFO researchers become more of a deeper mystery than the subject itself, suspicion quite rightly, has to be raised.
For all we know, the UFO subject could be just one long ongoing psychological study of the general public, on how it reacts to 'strangeness' occurring within their normal routine?

Boy we got all the cynics and skeptics out of the woodwork!
And I bet the IC agents looking for reactions

But whatever else they are supposed to be doing, even if it's shady business, most of the scientists
involved really DO believe in some form of the supernatural/xdim aliens/new science.
I'm 100% certain, as I know some of these people.
Kit Green may go on about mental illness a lot, but you know what? He's correct!
With sprinkles on top. It's not only UFO and conspiracy nuts, but most of the religious
and fervent political people too.
Makes me wonder what kind of medication he's on...or should be.
“The whole subject,” Jim says in wonderfully measured speech, “is composed of three components: delusion, sociological groupthink, and a kernel of truth.” Jim then reminds that he is first and foremost a medical scientist. “My interest in this subject is much, much more professional than it is personal. That is, 90 to 95% of all persons who are engaged fully with this [UFO] subject are psychiatrically ill, and by that I mean that they are on medication or should be.” Jim elaborates that “viral memes,”[see below] in which disturbed people seek validation in numbers on the web, is, or should be, a growing public health concern. That said, Jim nonetheless has a real interest in UFO’s, and seemingly with good reason.
The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) was a secret investigatory effort funded by the United States government to study unidentified flying objects, but it was not classified. It was first made public on December 16, 2017. The program began in 2007, with funding of $22 million over the five years until the available appropriations were ended in 2012. The program began in the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. Although the official AATIP program has ended, a related group of interested professionals have extended the effort in a nonprofit organization called, 'To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science.'

My few thoughts on this entire saga (great thread, by the way):
- Robert Bigelow is up to something, and I very much doubt it's anything good. If half the stuff that George Knapp reports as happening at Skinwalker Ranch was true, that alone would be enough to blow the entire question of paranormal phenomena wide open. His buying the site and NIDS suddenly going dark is highly suspicious, and that's without even starting on the financial connections and MUFON tampering.
- Believe very little of anything associated with abduction, and specifically just ignore David Jacobs. He's at best a hack with an agenda to push, and several more serious allegations of misconduct have come up in relation to him. John Mack was an excellent researcher, but I'm not sure he ever endorsed the abduction theory as entirely true (been a while since I read his book). Something traumatic is definitely happening to these people, or some of them at least, but what that something is remains unclear.
- Tom DeLonge and this whole TTS Academy thing stinks of a fading celebrity getting involved with a sketchy snake oil marketing group. Mark my words, that's going nowhere except late-night TV infomercials.
- Whatever Bob Lazar was working with (assuming any part of his story is real) wasn't element-115, and those carbon rods were just carbon rods, and maybe a Simpsons reference joke. Several research groups have synthesized element-115 (named moscovium) and the stuff doesn't hover, or do anything much else but produce absurd amounts of radiation.
