If I say "She let the cat out of the bag" that's an expression which is not meant to infer anything about a cat nor a bag, it just means she said
something she shouldn't have. Likewise my usage (as well as many of my peers) of the expression "what was he smoking" doesn't refer to a cat, bag,
or smoking material, but it's rather an expression that an error in fact or judgment was made of a type that admittedly could be made while smoking
something, but when I say that I rarely ever really mean I thought the person was really smoking anything.
People at NASA aren't superhumans, they are different people like you and me, and like you and me they can make mistakes sometimes. So the question
is, if it was a mistake, (implied by the smoking question) what kind of mistake was it? Was it accidentally using a classified document source
material in an unclassified document, or what it some confusion between Apollo 12 and Apollo 15 which did have a standup EVA, or was it something

my eyes are wide open and i see NASA is a big bag of lies and deception
for starters here's a good example...
NASA has admitted to "manipulating" scanned photographs in settings such as brightness, contrast (probably color adjustments too) like many people
and organizations tweak photo settings before publishing them.
If they've admitted they adjusted some of the brightness, contrast or color settings, and they actually have, I don't see how this proves lies and
Moreover, while Escamilla's contention that atmospheric dispersion can affect images as shown in his hazy scene of a valley, he also seems to be
comparing video camera images with photographs, which is not an apples to apples comparison, as the technologies for those two different photographic
methods were quite different at the time of the Apollo missions (the technologies have both converged now to CCD). So it shouldn't be too surprising
if an image made with a video camera doesn't have the same color balance, sharpness and clarity as an image made with a Hasselblad still camera.
