That makes more sense because if you're going to fly intergalactic, then you want to rely on 1960s technology to open and close your doors. Smart Martians !
Fakity fake fake. From his own words.
And you registered on ATS just te let us know?
The guy mentioned this because for him, at that time it was shocking too. It was technology that he was meeting for the first time. Why on earth would you mention a trivial swipecard unless it was somerhing odd about it.
And you talk about a gap of about 7 years which is a minimum for military tech to get obsolete an let free into the market. Some cold war tech is secret even today in US and Russia too.edit on 6-5-2013 by xxerse because: A small typo

Why does a dying person care about being anonymous? Not trying to call the man a liar, but this little bit of information should be cleared up before I believe what he has to say full heartily. He obviously doesn't care about being recognized since he doesn't have his face blurred out and voice altered.
Hehe, you are exactly the type of pefessional i was expecting to come here and debunk this guy. Yes sir, you are a pro, very well documented and knowledgeable about the subject and its exponents.
Let me point you something: whatever this man would have said, you would be able to point a case where that was stated and proven wrong.
Lazar was never proven wrong, but his statements were denied, he was considered an imposter etc... With this guy the same tactics will be employed.
On the other side, what we have here are just words that can be easily countered with words.
I hope soon someone will finally come up with a proof that will make the humanity rest in silence for 1 day and end this nightmare.
The interview seems straight forward and honest to me, For those of you grousing about the questions asked/not asked, The gentleman appeared genuinely in poor health... How firmly would you have grilled him?
How much detailed info could he have provided 40+ years after the fact? How much could you in the same situation?

And for completeness, I just came across this thread
that raises the same Q re card scanners, but was posted yesterday. In the thread someone posts a wiki link purporting to support card readers in the50s. but it actually says magnetic _tape_ is from 1950s but hard cards are 1960+ into the 70s.

The way he acts after he finishes with a feeling of relief adds to his credibility.
The feeling of relief could be because after a number of takes he was able to get through the lines he learned.
When finished he would feel relieved that the job is done, yes, whether his story to be true or whether he finally got his lines right.
As well, those who question how he may of been recruited to CIA. I would argue that the CIA has no employment add stating this or that as an asset.
Really, I believe there was a thread here on ATS discussing the CIA recruiting at some of the top Universities.
If memory serves me well the CIA set up recruiting stands like the military do.
