Well yea, it seems pretty obvious to me at least, that the flares were dropped in direct response to the sightings earlier. How many times before
that, and since, have they dropped flares in that location in site of the city? The answer is 0 - they had never done it prior, nor since. Prior to
the flares in Phoenix, there were calls including to the Air Force base, about the huge object and triangle people were seeing. There were witnesses
who saw low flying jets flying in the direction the object had gone. The odds that they would drop a triangle shaped formation on the same night that
the object was sighted? Yea.. pretty much nil imo - it was clearly dropped in response, to give a decent alibi. And it worked too - to this day,
there are still people who post the flares over Phoenix, thinking it was the actual craft. Mission accomplished I think.
Also, I think that it wasn't the calls that drove the mission to drop the flares - I think they had their own knowledge of what was out there. At
least radar, if not visuals with aircraft. They knew, and reacted. I am sort of doubting they would do this just because of the phone calls.
Finally, they follow it up with a wonderful little disinfo piece - the governor bringing his aide onto the stage in an alien costume to make the
entire thing a joke.
To me at least, the military did more harm to themselves than good by dropping those flares. It made it obvious that they were aware, and were taking
counter-measures. A huge case, and one that still amazes me - that is, that it doesn't get more attention. The sightings prior to the flares, the
way they dropped the flares, sightings AFTER the flares - it all adds up to something huge. And people would rather focus on tiny dots in videos.
