Sometimes the obvious gets overlooked while people fight over the insignificant details of a case. Public figures have a tendency to be treated like
sacrificial cows in rivers filled with man-eating pirana.
Bob Lazar was indeed listed in the Los Alamos National Lab phone directory as a contracted employee, however part time or short term, with the US
government. Stanton Friedman states this on his write up about him. If the government thought that Lazar was an uneducated, unskilled, media-grabbing
loser, they would never have hired him in the first place to work in a top secret facility.
Having been a government employee, however short term, means that he has the right to testify as a former government employee. Period.
I could care less about what degrees he has or the topic of his dissertation, or if he can remember specific names of people he worked with (which is
probably not a good idea to divulge anyway), as these things are irrelevant. After all, we are not asking him to become a president of a university,
a senator, a governor, or to build a starship, just to tell us what he saw and to give us his take on interpretation, which he indeed did do publicly.
Let's now take the nails out of his wrists and feet and take him down from the cross that many of us love to keep him on.
