The thing is, there is no doubt that Leventhal knows it's him and this is why. Riggle was the Deputy for Public Affairs for the city of New York, so
Leventhal knows it's Riggle because that is who he would of had to of gone to anyway.
You are making a very good point.
I didn't know about Riggle's position, but I am sure that, if Riggle is Harley Man, a lot
of people know about it. His wife and kids for
instance and undoubtedly friends of his. Many of them would have seen him on TV or on the internet in the years following, giving the interview.
Old friends of Riggle, from back in the day. Service pals etc. would have recognised him.
It would be interesting to find other photos from the day, of Riggle, working the pile. He was on the pile for more than a week I believe, before
being reactivated in the service.
A psy-ops plant would be, and I think has been, protected.
I personally think that Riggle is the guy, mainly because of his military connections, circle of silent friends, career in show biz, which is an
industry that is known for shutting up about embarrassing secrets, despite the impression that the tabloids would give us. (Anybody remember Charles
Kuralt and his double life?)
However, it could (theoretically) have been another guy in psy-ops who just looks a hell of a lot like Riggle.
I think an ordinary person, without the connections, who was just an over enthusiastic, but innocent, phony, would have been outed already.
