Corso is a double-edged sword. On one hand, he's a pretty credible guy. High ranking officer, worked at the Pentagon, worked under Trudeau, knew
Twining, Thurmond, etc. Certainly, he was in a position to be pretty likely to have dealt with the Roswell debris.
On the other hand, I'm not so sure how detailed any of us could recall events that happened decades ago. Because of a slip on such details here and
there, it of course gives skeptics plenty of ammo. Corso's own attempts to overemphasize his importance in the scheme of things, also doesn't help
matters. However, had I been in his shoes, I'm not so sure I would have done differently, hehe....
So, to sum up, I do believe he's credible. There seems to be little reason to doubt it. Not like he tried to get rich off this, releasing the story
pretty much towards the end of his days. I think he was simply terrified of being in such a pivotal place and time with such important info, and
being lost to history. In the final analysis, this pride and fear shared by such men are indeed something we as outsiders need to have as our ally,
for it is the one undeniable thing that often makes such men come forward. Details that are slightly off here or there are pretty forgivable to me,
when dealing with events of almost half a century ago...(at the time he came forward).
In reading his book though, you do have to be wary of some things. When he speaks of projects he wasn't heavily involved in (such as Horizon), he
admits to SPECULATING that we went ahead with it. He makes the point of it being speculation pretty clear, but then devotes WAY too much on such
speculations. I'd rather have NOT seen such things in his book...it really didn't need it. When using Corso as a reference, I'd stick with the
things he was actively a part of.
As to the lenses...
Corso described them as dark eliptical membranes (similar to contact lenses), that functioned as low light vision when held up in front of the eye.
In the highly regarded as fake "Alien Autopsy", there is a scene with doctors removing such a membrane. From their removal, it appears that the
membrane just might attach just as a contact lens does (i.e. suction), as there was no cutting, or attaching tissue, etc. Also, this scene isn't
really mentioned in much of the verbal accounts, narration or text about the film.
While I too regard the footage as fake (for many many reasons), I am left wondering just why the filmakers would include this particular detail. If
making a fake just for laughs or money, you'd think they'd stick with common perceptions. To date though, these are the only two sources I've seen
regarding the eyes being dark due to membranes with more normal eyes underneath vs. that simply being their eyes.
