I click on the link to Part 6 and instead it goes to Part 8.
However, in Part 8, Corso says that the NSA was picking up alien "intercepts" in code in the 1950's. Somebody ought to fire a note over to Seth
Shostak at SETI and bring him up to speed.
Funnily enough, it is statements like the one referred to above, which place everything else that comes out of the man's mouth into question.
It is highly likely that the NSA has never received a transmission from aliens in code, particularly using 1950's radio receivers. But Corso doesn't
qualify his statement in any way that would indicate that he has two clues to rub together on the subject, that he knows about the efforts made by
SETI or that he knows that NSA, vintage 1950, probably came to the realisation themselves that whatever they thought might be an alien transmission
was really something else.
There is something about his manner, the little "insider" put downs he was giving the interviewers, that really put me off. Info or disinfo. Take
your pick. Sometimes he sounds like a yarn spinner and sometimes he sounds pretty sharp but never sharp enough to really convince me of anything.
Maybe I just don't know enough to really put him in context like George Knapp can.
