to identify the relevant words).
I have to agree. Why would he be carrying such a memo mentioning bodies to a press conference having nothing to do with the crash site, where a large
number of press might possibly see it? I can imagine that tensions would be riding high in a press conference like that.
Furthermore, the technology that was used to find the words worked by blowing up the picture. However, of course, one can only blow up the picture so
large before the interference in the negative or the copy renders it a blur. Even if they had the negative which would give them the best image to
enhance, but which in this case I don't think they did (I may be wrong about that) the credibility of the analysis is hurt. After blowing up the
picture, the contents of the letter were, in my opinion, extrapolated based on speculation and wishful thinking. Maybe someday technology will
progress to where such an analysis will be practical, but unfortunately not yet.
