A couple years ago, George Knapp interviewed someone on the local news who is a Las Vegas resident stating he can get a UFO to show up anywhere, anytime and all he has to do is think about it.
I missed the news coverage of it, but heard a snippet on a local radio talk show the next morning. They took this man to a location not disclosed in advance (so he couldn't plan it with someone) and chosen by the news team. He thought about the UFO and it appeared within a minute (maybe only seconds). He didn't even use a headset.
Not certain why the govt thinks they need one! They should learn telepathic communication instead.

Brad Sparks' article does seem to nail some damning stuff, in particular Corso's alleged relationship with Frank Wisner.
When I first read the book, I did think Corso was a bit of a blowhard who tended to put himself at the centre of events. However, he put the book out when he knew he wasn't going to live much longer, and I gave him the benefit of the doubt on that basis.

Even though Mr. Knapp's interview has some type of credibility, I would not call it the smoking gun on the subject of UFOs. It is an interesting piece of work, which will be debated for several decades.
Some questions come to mind after watching this video and they include:
Does this film show definitive proof that there are aliens visiting Earth?
No. Even though you can look up some of his science, he does not provide facts that can be measured, tested, or touched.
Is Mr. Corso telling the truth?
Debatable. Since this video was taken when Mr. Corso was an older man, the reliability of his memory comes into question. Someone could easily say that he was suffering from Dimensia.
Could Mr. Knapp have staged or edited this interview for his benefit?
(No offense to Mr. Knapp).
Since I personally do not know the man, I would have to question his overall motive. Sure. He could have edited and staged this interview. If you watch anyone of the clips (start to finish), you can see that some type of editing was done. My question is "Why?"
Why did Mr. Knapp edit these videos? What is missing from them?
EDITED FOR CLARITY

Unfortunately I have not read his book the day after Roswell as it is not easy to get around here.
I have to say however this is a very good thread to support your theory. But it has not changed my mind about the whole episode.

"...Third, as always, ATS members have raised pointed, pertinent questions and issues about the material. I expected no less. There are a heck of a lot of things I'd like to say in response, but it will take a lot more space than the 4000 characters allowed per post. Maybe the illustrious Springer can organize some sort of venue or format where I could go into as much detail as possible, or have a real time exchange, though I'm sure there is plenty that I can't answer."
I find Mr. Corso fascinating and tend to view his lack of effort to establish a base for some of the astounding things that he states in the videos as lending credibility to his story (BS artists generally work the "sell" much more, while Mr. Corso seems to be recalling from memory, very matter of fact-like in his delivery). I would love to hear as much detail as you can offer in as many posts as you would be willing to provide!
"...In general, I believe Corso, for reasons I can explain in detail at a future time. The story clearly has flaws, which seems to be true for all tales told by UFO whistleblowers. My personal opinion is that this is not entirely accidental. We can get into that if there is enough interest from the members."
INTEREST!!! INTEREST!!! INTEREST!!! (apologies for the caps, but...)
"...Sixth, I shot another extended interview with Corso. He flew out to LV and faced a more pointed Q and A session. I plan to post those segments in a few days and hope you will check them out."
Looking very much forward to those!

I don't find those inconsistencies all that remarkable.
I think postulating that he was a rabid thorough-going disinfo agent primarily or only . . . is too much of a stretch.
It seems the more extraordinary the claims the more we scrutinise. It's understandable but sometimes a little unfair.

Someone said the claims can't be verified, as with all the other whistleblowers' claims. ...Seems to me it's just arithmetic - add 'em all together and sum it up.
