They have absolutely nothing to gain by connecting this to the Phoenix Lights if this were a disinfo campaign. Most people believe in the flare theory that was presented and the only ones who don't are people like us who are looked upon as crazy, so it's not like there was a threat of the public marching on Washington over the original Phoenix Lights.
any "combustible or explosive composition, substance or combination of substances, or any article prepared for the purpose of producing a visible or audible effect by combustion, explosion, deflagration or detonation..."
The man interviewed, who asked not to be identified, said he believed turbulence created by a passing jet caused the balloons to move around.
Phoenix Police helicopter pilot Bruce Bates, who saw the lights, said the balloons explanation makes sense.
Police will not investigate the mysterious lights seen flickering in the sky.

Also, Flares have intense heat! So are you telling me that they hoaxer balanced these flares perfectly so the that flame ALWAYS stayed away from the fishing line? Eventually the flare would tip either down or up depending on how it was ballanced. And all that heat going up would melt the line. And remember as the element of the flare burns, the weight of the flare changes!

What is it here with the mentality that 4 lights in the sky HAVE to be aliens?
The guy may well be in trouble under FAA regulations
But I hardly think the FAA are going to kick his door down because of 4 balloons, although Government bodies do like to make examples and may just be letting him sweat a bit before fining him (I would)
Just because you cant figure out how he tethered the flare to the balloon, doesnt mean cant have, it just mean you cant figure it out. (try putting the holding line around the flare then to the balloon. A large enough gap between the flare and balloon will prevent complications)
