I believe Valdez and he had the experience to form his conclusions. He was right there, spoke to the ranchers, saw the cattle and more
importantly...saw the blades, glow-sticks and a gas-mask left at the scene. On top of that, they found radar-chaff at one location and UV-sensitive
dust on the backs of specific cattle. IIRC in a couple of incidents, they heard the sound of something like a micro-light in the direction of lights
over a cattle pasture.
All of these things are terrestrial.
In his last interview he explained that it was government-sanctioned and 'too sensitive' to pursue. He noted that he'd informed several attorneys
of the facts, as he understood them, as a means of protecting himself from trouble.
People are too quick to go down the 'evil aliens' route without taking seriously other possibilities. Look at the origins of the 70s/80s 'evil
aliens' myths. It's worth wondering why our 'evil aliens' were so regionally specific?
The final interview was conducted by Alejandro Rojas for Open Minds over
It's a fascinating interview
and Valdez sounds content and philosophical.
People are so busy playing Scooby Doo with the UFO mystery and forget that serious people have serious secrets. National security issues and possibly
experimental biological testing are always going to be highly classified. When Valdez says it's 'too sensitive,' maybe it is! Maybe he came to find
something that was too big, too dark and not for publishing in ufology journals and websites.
It's like the Area 51 thing. Ufologists and hobby researchers expect to camp out and take photos of new technology and black projects. They expect to
be able to publish all this on-line and say 'UFOs! Aliens!' What nation on Earth would allow civilians to broadcast their defence/stealth/offensive
technology to competing nations? None.
The protection of security and assets in a hostile political world is always going to supersede the curiosity of civilians. If that protection
involves seeding 'evil aliens' ideas and discrediting gullible researchers and reckless halfwits, they're going to do it.
Valdez stumbled onto aspects of this and was wise enough to hold his tongue. In my opinion, he should be respected for his investigations and if
people want to disagree with his conclusions, they could stop short of making accusations.
