Any thoughts? Am I missing something?
But what I can't get my head round is Jim Pennistons notebook. Though he was the witness to touch the object and made drawings of the craft and it's marking, which he showed after he had left the military. It was quite a number of years till he came forward with additional information about his diary, the binary code pages. That does not sit right with me. Why not show all the information in his notebook at that time.
My big beef with Rendlesham is how many of the main witnesses' stories have changed dramatically over the years, in the direction of stranger than at first and more ET-y. Even Halt's story changed. But the big one, the big change, is the guy who drew in his notebook that night.
What I can tell you is that I was stationed at Ramstein at the time of the incident which was Headquarters for USAFE (US Air Forces Europe) Command. I knew very quickly thru the network that something important had happened but not the details....
...a friend of mine was stationed at the American base at the time of the incident. He, and many of the soldiers stationed there, were transferred to other bases very soon after this happened. He said they were split up to keep them from talking to each other about what happened.

8-bit ASCII is just too much a human invention. I mean, if you (ET) already knew the letters you had to use, and it was English, then why go through the encoding of 8-bit characters when you easily could have used letters.
I'm not hung up on their [sic] being a craft.
For goodness sake, I wish people stopped getting uptight about what they think I think and feel.
Yes, personally, I believe there was a craft of some kind seen that night.

All I can say Mirageman, he told this to me not very long after it happened, so imbelishment[sic] of the incident was not part of the equation, at least in his situation. As far as the others are concerned, I can;t speak for them. a reply to: mirageman

But the big one, the big change, is the guy who drew in his notebook that night. Suddenly, years and years Nd years later, he tells us about the binary code "download" he got? Why did we not hear about that until decades later, when interest in the case kicked up? That's a problem.
NOW we have some discrepancies! These are more along the lines of what I was thinking.
That binary code... it doesn't make sense to me. If they could give him binary that translates to english, why not just give him Emglish? They clearly understood English, so why convert it to binary? I could think of a few reasons I suppose, but it still just seems pretty fishy to me.

I knew very quickly thru the network that something important had happened but not the details. The incidents were real and both men had trouble getting the VA to grant them disabilities suffered during the encounters. It's another example of the possible existence on Earth of an unknown sentient intelligence with possible multiple species. We do know they happen but not what they are. My best,
