If there’s anyone out there still paying attention to the ongoing Rendlesham saga there have been a few developments recently.
Richard Dolan and Gary Heseltine will be appearing with Rendlesham Forest Incident witnesses John Burroughs and Larry Warren in Woodbridge at the
Community Hall on Saturday (Sep 20th 2014).
Prior to the event John Burroughs issued a press release.
“Woodbridge UK, September 15, 2014 — The British Ministry of Defense is still withholding high-level UFO public policy papers, along with other
key information, despite the public stance that all material has been transferred to the National Archives, according to John F. Burroughs, a retired
USAF security officer...
...According to the National Archives web page dated 21 June 2013 they stated they had today released its tenth and final tranche of UFO files...
...This seeming act of transparency was apparently a ruse, as FOIA requests by Burroughs have revealed two further versions of the truth...
...In response to a follow-up FOIA request, the MOD revised its position to say that they were still maintaining 18 UFO documents as
..."It boils down to this:" Burroughs stated, "Puthoff's predictions for effects of a drive capable of interstellar travel match the effects of
the UFO Phenomenon noted by Vallee/Davis and they match the effects described by the MOD of the UAP Phenomenon under study." "Most significantly,
the predicted effects of the theoretical interstellar drive on humans in close proximity match those of the MOD - which could not have known of
Puthoff's theory at the time of the writing -- and they match the symptoms I exhibit from a close encounter with the phenomenon while on duty at

Meanwhile Colonel Charles Halt and SSgt. James Penniston, witnesses on the third and first nights respectively, appeared on the Eno’s radio show
“Behind the Paranormal”.

It seems that the Penniston/Burroughs relationship has deteriorated once again and they are no longer a team. Halt declares he is there to “support
Jim” whilst Penniston figures it was a while since Colonel Halt and he were on a show together and he could add a lot to the program and discuss the
3rd night. John Burroughs is now referred to as “Airman Burroughs” by Penniston.
Penniston interestingly states around 16 mins in, whilst waffling on about the binary codes .... and referring to the distance from the base
“ ..I went home, 20 miles away....”
This throws even more doubt on his Boxing Day excursions.
See : My earlier post on this tight timeline
It was Boxing Day and 1980 traffic would be light. But by current estimates that means a 30 minute trip home from Bentwaters and a slightly longer
return trip back to the forest to make plaster casts. In between ( I give him an hour and 15 mins max to do all this) he had to contact a friend,
obtain the plaster of Paris from him, mix the solution, get to the forest, set out on foot (as we know even USAF vehicles could not reach the landing
site), make the casts and wait for them to set whilst also avoiding other personnel and British Police.
Perhaps not impossible but thoroughly amazing timing and luck would have to be involved here. Unless of course the story is not as it seems.
Back in 2010 Penniston said:

Well now with hindsight (or the benefit of seeing what people like me write on the internet) Penniston actually recalls what Binary Codes are (about
14:00 mins in).
“Oh binary codes ..I mentioned that in hypnosis that’s when I made a connection......”
Yes he most certainly did mention binary, but still didn’t seem to understand what they were even though he mentioned binary codes during his
hypnosis. When exactly did he make the connection??????????
Penniston then begins to distance himself from “Airman Burroughs” seemingly no longer able to call him simply “John”. From around 25 mins in
to around 26:30 he mumbles on, nothing meaningful,about getting the “Binary Codes” out but seemingly having a little dig at “Airman
Then we come to Colonel Charles Halt, who may or may not have some kind of hold on Penniston down the years.
He brazenly declares at different times :
I have a lot of things to say but I am not going to say them now because they are going to be very interesting when they come out..... I’m going to
put something out there that’s quite revealing.
So it seems, reading between the lines, that Halt is preparing his own book on things. Perhaps Penniston is tagging along as well?
Halt claims he was misled by OSI that they had no interest in the case and had never been debriefed. Although he does mention a conversation years
later he had with John Alexander (significant?).
Halt also mentions that immediately after the incident he made some tapes to remind himself of the events at around 32 minutes or so into the
..not long after the event I sat down ..with a small recorder and recorded everything I knew about it on to a tape. Made many copies, secreted them
away several places, just in case somebody did mess with me. And I’ve listened to that tape and you know what? It still tracks.
What does that say about him placing incorrect dates on the infamous Halt memo? A memo he wrote 3 weeks after the events.
Penniston then joins in, sometimes incoherently, about making his own records but eventually saying “but those are personal logs you know”. He
then goes off on a tangent about how people like Richard Dolan. Peter Robbins and Gary Heseltine have been at numerous conferences with him and never
asked him one question about Rendlesham.
Then about 45 mins Penniston and Halt put the boot in on John Burroughs. Halt especially stating how the guy has problems with “anger management”.
Penniston feels that Halt protected him by keeping him and Burroughs apart for so long and plays it like Halt's lapdog. The mind boggles at the
constant changes in loyalties. Meanwhile Larry Warren & Peter Robbins do not escape without Halt slamming them either......

As I said a long time ago there is still a Machiavellian game going on between the main witnesses.
It does seem at times that Jim Penniston is totally and utterly confused when he's speaking and revises his story on a constant basis. Which is very
