Forgive some vague comments in this post but I'd like to bring up some of the more interesting facets of the Bennewitz affair , as they warrant
discussion I've yet seen on these particular issues.
Much of this info is gleaned from my memoryof the considerable mass of ufo folklore(though I do not beleive it to be simply that), but also two books,
"Project Beta" by Greg Bishop and "Exempt from Disclosure" by Doty, and Collins.
Bishop's book is based on deconstructing a particular portion of ufo stories( many of those later espoused by Lear and Cooper) with the emphasis on
the disinformation treatment of Bennewitz.
My questions concern the still unanswered questions that leap from Bishop's book. One being, the orange (or green) fireballs that would occasionally
appear in Bennewitz home in front of others besides Bennewitz. Bishop brings up this fact but does not speculate on what they are.
In discrediting the Dulce story as being contrived for Bennewitz he forgets the evidence that is cited for strange activity in the area elsewhere in
the book(cattle mutilations, lights in the sky) but offers no hypotheses on those instances which were occuring long befor ethe Bennewitz affair.
Bennewitz , during the awful affair, says he would find himself just driving in the desert and attribute dthe strange behavior to injections the
aliens gave them at night, Bishop does say that Doty and another independently recall the injection marks on his arms, yet given the "proof" that
had alreday been offered Bennewitz, why would he inflict these on himself( they ran along one arm I believe, I do wonder if he is right or left
Another strange passage refers to wreckage that bennewitz found near (or on) the Archuleta mesa. Bennewitz did take pictures, but Bishop postulates
that it was a stealth bomber experiment, it remains to be seen how Bennewitz kept stumbling on government programs so easily. A stealth bomber
prototype would have been secured quickly if it crashed.
A story from William Moore is recounted indicated that there is some sort of underground facility near Kirtland that has alternate entrances.
In "Exempt from disclosure" Doty "discloses"( sorry lol) that Bishop's books contain a number of distortions.
These questions raised, is it possible that there remains more to this story?
