reply to post by derekcbart
i appreciate ur work as an investigator and also jeff ritzman and all others who try to get to the bottom of the truth....here i raised this question
to micheal horn in figu forums and thisis what i got in reply...
I actually got the info re Robert Post, as well as the other info, from Gary Kinder's Open Letter to the UFO Community:
So, as I recall, I didn't edit his comments at all.
As far as the claim that Michael Malin disputed the comments attributed to him, Gary Kinder made it clear that before
he published his book, he submitted all of the quotes attributed to the various parties - Malin included - for them to sign
off on, or to correct, etc. Malin SIGNED OFF on the quotes attributed to him. It's most likely a matter of him not now
wanting to be associated with a UFO case (let alone THE UFO case of all times) in order to preserve his precious
reputation, funding, etc.
One thing I do recall was writing to Malin or someone connected to him INVITING him to...SUE if the comments
attributed to him were false and made without his approval.
Naturally, no such suit was ever filed.
Further, Bartholomaus likes to point out that some of the forestry experts denied making the comments that James
Deardoff attributed to them. However, the comments were indeed made, more than 25 years ago, and never retracted.
Let's remember that Deardorff also knew these people and it's most likely another case of some, now much older.
professors not wanting to be involved in a UFO case too. Bartholomaus also deliberately LIED and said that we had
said that the forestry experts had commented on the UFO, which they hadn't and we'd never claimed.
Further, when I wrote to the lead consul for OSU, after Bartholomaus was making all of his noise, I said that I'd be glad
to provide some photos so that a fresh look and evaluation could be made by the forestry experts. The counsel
graciously declind and...wished me good luck with my project.

Subject: RE: Comment on UFO
Thanks for writing. Regarding your first sentence below, I would have to
say that no deliberate misrepresentation of your remarks was made by me
or anyone connected to the study of the Meier UFO case. Nowhere have we
said that you authenticated any photos of UFOs, etc. for anyone. Whoever
may have led you to believe that such representations were made is
So, to be specific and accurate, your statements below that directly
relate to our concerns are:
"An estimate of tree height (actually only the top portion of a single
particular tree) that I made several years ago in good faith ..."
"The photo was of poor quality, but I assumed that the tree in the photo
was real and gave an estimate of the height of the portion of the tree
above the alleged UFO based on that assumption."
