Pathos, I really wonder the following.
Why you on one hand posted all these remarks and those others in this thread in order to point everyone over and over again to the in your eyes lack of any solid evidence at all of what Col. Corso has said in that video while you self on the other hand started threads like these.

First Documented UFO Debunked

My comment is not towards you personally, but more towards your sayings in general. I do not mean any disrespect.

Lets use my thread as an example, and measure it up with Mr. Corso's story. If you take Mr. Kenneth Arnold's UFO sketch, you can find its counter part in real life. Other words you can take his image, and then you can test it against an exiting (physical) military plane. When it come's to Mr. Corso's alien sketch, you cannot match or test it up against something that has been proven to be real. We don't have any physical evidence that aliens exist, nor do we have confirmed images of what aliens 'actually' look like. Until an alien passes by the White House for a visit (and reporters are on hand), Mr. Croso's story is based upon pure speculation.

I found the following quite interesting after listening to the eight parts of this interview
Corso mentions and links at least five time to Wilbert Smith but denies mostly to further expand on U.S. guys and other details.
He mentions Smith in
Part II at 4:05
Part III at 0:40
Part IV at 2:20 and later at approx 2:40
Part VII at 8:18
But the interview is very interesting. Thank you for posting.

So then I said if you want to see a ship, come tonight to this location and I try to bring one in for you and your friend here. He was silent, but he got the point. Him and her came out, we brought in a few ships, he thanked me, no more questions asked.

A phenomenon tracked in other areas of academic research, once a subculture starts to develop, a sizable audience and body of literature are in place, people from the outside brought in and hit with leading questions on their participation very often start bending their memories and experiencing to conform to expectations and insert themselves into the history.
And there is, beyond the attention and some status, always the lure of a quick buck.
Disheartening to think of these old military geezers falling for the lure of retroactive fame as key figures in UFO history, but it's been happening.

I have been wondering when we would here from you. For sure I was missing you.
Well there we have it yet another one. Naturally with no proof what so ever.
I find it interesting that a man with his caliber would out right lye about such a thing.
But then again the US air force did.
Bestselling Book Exposed as a Hoax!
By Brad C. Sparks
EXCLUSIVE EXPOSE! Colonel Philip Corso and William Birnes
The only thing "extraterrestrial" in Philip Corso's book "The Day After Roswell" (Pocket Books/Simon & Schuster, 1997), is the height of his tall tales, certainly the tallest Roswell tales to date. His thesis of course (for those of you blessed with not hearing this rubbish before) is that many of our high-tech advances such as microcircuits (and the transistor before IC's), lasers, fiber optics, microwave ovens, Star Wars SDI weapons, etc., all actually came from "reverse engineering" the alien technology found in the crashed UFO near Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947 -- a feat largely made possible by Corso himself when he purportedly divvied up the alien goodies while working at Army R&D in the early 60's. But in his haste to cash in on Roswellmania he has made some fantastic blunders of history that completely expose him as a fraud in the most embarrassing way.
Corso just can't resist putting himself at the center stage of great events of history, courted by the big names such as Robert Kennedy and his "old friend" J. Edgar Hoover (Corso's "other book" is called "I Walked With Giants"), and he is ever the powerful hero. (pp. 2, 37, 84, 156, 191, 206-209, 255) But he trips on his way up the ladder to the stage. Corso has apparently made a cynical calculation that he'll be able to make his bundle and retreat before anyone can develop a sufficient publicity base to expose him, so there was no need to research his lies to get them perfect.
... last but not least Corso is the hero of the Planet Earth's desperate but successful "war" against the ETs (or EBE's, Extraterrestrial Biological Entities, the term he cribbed from the fraudulent MJ-12 documents) (pp. 5, 142, 249-250, 260, 269). This supposed war against UFOs led to Reagan and Gorbachev meeting and ending the Cold War (pp. 262-263, 266, 268). We had negotiated a "surrender" treaty with the aliens (were there alien negotiators in the State Dept. too?) until we were able to reverse engineer enough Roswell weapons to fight back (pp. 268, passim).
As Corso modestly boasts, "Sometimes, once in a very long while, you get the chance to save your country, your planet, and even your species at the same time." (p. 273) Corso gives whole new meaning to the term "delusions of grandeur."
Corso's notion that many of our high-tech innovations were really back-engineered from extraterrestrials is a new twist on the Ancient Astronauts theory. Instead of saying man was too stupid to invent pyramids or the wheel on his own and had to get the ideas from space visitors, Corso has updated the concept and says we got the microwave oven (p. 178) and laptop computers (pp. 170-173) from aliens. I guess all those millions of scientists and engineers we've cranked out over the years have largely been a waste -- they were dummies who had to get clued in by ET's.
Now that we've established that Corso fabricates entire screenplays and dialogues involving himself inside CIA headquarters and elsewhere that never happened and never could have happened, there really is no need to go into the rest of his confabulations about his heroic role in getting U.S. industry to "reverse engineer" microchips, fiber optics, lasers, Kevlar, etc., from his make-believe Roswell spacecraft. That would be chasing phantoms, trying to prove a negative -- that something doesn't exist -- which is inherently very difficult if not actually impossible. The dramatic stories that we can easily check prove Corso to be a rank literary hoaxer.

No one asked about the live double lobed one standing behind a psychic last June in the picture on page one, so I will say that I figure it is going to be debunked because the alien is looking as if operating from another dimensional level, or cgi so it almost appears as an after image, but who knows the owners of the picture welcome the SKeptics with all sincerity.
And BO XIAN, this happened in your neck of the woods during the time I told you I was in az.
On that note I have to say I dont know if it is authentic or not, really.
I appreciate the responses and look forward to sharing with you at another time.
As for Colonel Corso, I appreciate him immeasurably.

In part one he describes the same type of alien possibly as I have in this picture ready for a new thread if I can ever get the video to accompany.
I saw this picture and can verify that it is an original not copy, of a supposed Government photo of an Alien Being.
The head has twin lobes, same as Col. Corso discusses.

A lot of what he talks about matches up with David Adair's testimony, about the telepathic guidance system on the UFOs. David Adair said the craft was controlled by way of brain waves. Corso described a headset-like device which would pick up brainwaves to control the craft.
