A straw man is a component of an argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position. To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the "straw man"), and refuting it, without ever having actually refuted the original position.

For his part, Mr. Paris has been keeping the full content of this video a mystery.
Because that's exactly what a person with video evidence of something like this would do. Release heavily edited portions, then keep he rest hidden and secret before finally releasing it after some media hype.
You know what? I'll just wait for ATS to do the work on this one, cause personally, it's a colossal waste of my time to put any effort into this story.

There's a couple of really strange looking men that were here and they kinda freaked everybody out, and they were asking questions about you. And of course now I'm getting a little bit nervous and I'm like "what are you talking about?" And he said "well they were," he goes, "I don't know how to describe them but they were extremely odd looking. They were the exact same height. They were wearing the exact same clothes and had the exact same faces, like they were twins." And he said "they were wearing black suits. Black trench coats. They were wearing like the old fashioned fedora hats. They had an extremely extremely pale skin" and he said "they came in and asked for you." And I said I'm sorry he's actually not working today." It seemed like they didn't believe me. So they started to walk around the hotel and shortly after they went to the tour desk. But you know they freaked me out and I really wanted to tell you that there were these weird guys here looking for you. Then the next day, I was talking with my ... um...tour guests, and one of them asked to talk to me. She came into my office the same as my bellman, and she said "I heard that you heard there were some men looking for you." And she said "they asked a few questions about you and they said strange things that I didn't understand. They were talking about governments, and conspiracies, and none of it made any sense to me." And, she goes, "But they were very, very scary." She said "they had no eyebrows, no eyelashes, nothing! Their hair looked like they had a wig on. Like it was attached to their hat. Like it wasn't even real!" And she said "And mysterious thing, their eyes were so big and so blue, that they almost hypnotized me a little bit." And she goes, "You're going to think I'm crazy when I tell you this, but I swear they knew what I was thinking." And she started to cry, and she said one more thing before she got up, she said, "these men, they didn't blink. Not once did I see them blink."
MIB’S Also referred to as the ’Men In Black’ or ’Horlocks’. These are apparently in many cases humans who are controlled by draconian influences, although other ’MIB’ have been encountered which do not seem human, but more reptilian OR "synt hetic". The ’MIB’ have been encountered often after UFO sightings, usually intimidating witnesses into keeping silent about what they’ve seen (many of the witnesses may be ’abductees’ with suppressed memories of the event). Their ’threats’ appear to be motivated by attempts to utilize ’terrorism’, ’fear’ or ’intimidation’ as a psychological weapon against witnesses. This ’weapon’ may not only be used to keep the human ’MIB’ under control, but by the human MIB’s themselves. ’They’ are often, though not always, seen in connection with large, black automobiles, some of which have been seen disappearing into mountains -- as in the case of one basing area between Hopland and Lakeport, California -- canyons or tunnels or in some cases apparently appear out of or disappear (cloak?) into 'thin air'. Most humanoid MIB have probably been implanted by the Draconians and are essentially their ’slaves’. Bio-synthetic forms possessed by ’infernals’ also seem to play a part in the MIB scenario, as do subterranean and exterran societies. Sirius, at only 9+ light years away, has been identified as a major exterran MIB center of activity, with a subterran counterpart existing in ancient antediluvian ’Atlantean’ underground complexes which have been ’re-established’ beneath the Eastern U.S. seaboard.
Some stand more than 8 feet tall, run 40 mph and live 800 years. They speak like a dog barking or a bird chirping, write similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics and have learned English quite easily. They have large blue eyes that wrap part way around their heads, small noses and tiny ears pressed tight to their scalps. Their thumbs are small with four long slender fingers and two claw-like appendages instead of fingernails. They all have thin, straight blond hair, usually worn short and the women can be distinguished by a feminine looking short cut. Their hips are shaped liked ours, but they walk quite differently since they are used to a stronger gravity pull. As previously mentioned, the Tall Whites can grow to be over 7 feet tall. However, most the adults in the first half of their lives usually range in size from 5’10 to 6’5”. “Their life span is ten times grater than ours,” said Hall, adding that it takes them 10 times longer to heal, too. “They do not age as we do, but at about 400 earth years, they undergo a second stage of growth, eventually reaching about 8 feet tall. They then die of organ failure at an age of approximately 800 years. Since on their planet, days are longer so are they sleeping patterns, usually staying awake for two earth days and then followed by sleeping the same amount of time.” “Although they can be quite friendly, they are at times arrogant and insulting. But they appear sensitive and understanding to our social structures and have cultivated relationships with high-ranking military officials, some of who have worked side by side with the Tall Whites. They held lesser ranking persons with disdain and I got a long with them by letting them treat me as their pets.” Asked what the Tall Whites thought was unique about humans, he said, “they couldn’t get over how we interacted with animals. They commented several times that we were the only life form they met that kept animals as pets. They appeared to be extremely frightened of our animals and couldn’t figure out why we would interact with something so potentially deadly.” Hall said he learned very little about the origin of the Tall Whites during his two-year encounter. “They really shared very little about their history and origins,” recalls Hall. However, one incident took place with a Tall White he called “the Teacher” which revealed they may have come from near the star Arcturus about 36 light years away.
