Remember this illustration from "Halt", according to the Daily Mail?
It is in fact, by the whistleblower that Told Brenda about the RFI in 1981.
"Steve Roberts" befriended Brenda and her boyfriend before the RFI occurred, at least as far as a I can tell.
"Steve" has never been publicly identified by anyone by Georgia Bruni claimed to know his identity. He was interviewed by Georgia who stated that he
was not one of the participants.
Georgia asked him, in her book, "you can't tell the people" if he stood by his account,to Brenda ,of seeing aliens in silver suits. Essentially he
denied that there were aliens but there was a craft. This contradicts the story he gave Brenda that strangely parallels much of Larry's story.
Of course, his craft looks nothing like what Halt, Penniston and Burroughs variously described and could never have fit through the trees!
Georgia asked about this difference and Roberts reply was simply "No comment"!
What Georgia missed was the fact that Roberts' encounter matches Warren's and Bustinzas encounter in the field! The craft does not match what they
I'd be tempted to say that Roberts could have easily pointed out his encounter occurred on another night and was different. He didn't.
In 1981 he recounts a story of aliens and draws a craft that matches nothing else but conflates the legs of Pennistons craft, and the tripod marks
with the size and alien light tubes of Warren.
In 1987 he returns from travel and tells Brenda that the whole event was a hoax that he was ordered to spread to cover another one event.
In 1999 he tells Georgia the event happened but there was no landing or aliens seen.
Roberts story is the weakest of all, and brings together elements of halt, warren, Burroughs and Pennistons various narratives. In fact I can only
suggest a few options.
- That Roberts story is the closest to the original hoax story to be spread and each of the others has run with aspects of it.
- That Halts claim that Larry stole a fictitious story from a coworker (Roberts) is not correct. Roberts was actually given the story formed from a
combination of information from the debriefings. He was then ordered to spread the story to ufologists.
I strongly feel the latter is more likely. My only point. Of friction is why is his craft nothing like Halt's, Pennsitons or the Warren variant?
I'm convinced that the difference in models - from just lights to a triangle to a pyramid with little wings - to this "illustration" is key.
My conclusion is that Roberts illustration is so classically 'ufo' and the other sightings are so different in style (even the arrangement of floating
plasma lights) that it was created quickly and with little reference to even Halts experience.
I'd like to propose that the reason it's a generic saucer with alien beam tubes, and Penniston tripod legs is that it was part of a narrative that was
Why? The danger of a leak and the need to beat it's release.
Doesn't that seem unusual, for the event to be leaked before anything happened?
My only suggestion is that Larry's phone call and proven letter to his mother, combined with past experience kickstarted the Roberts disinformation
The 1987 claim that the event was a hoax that the airman were told to spread is hard to reconcile with a few facts.
- why would Larry be ordered to spread a false story but begin with his own mother?
- why would Halt incorrectly state that Warren hadn't received his PRP and was not on duty?
- Why would Halt suggest that Warren stole a made up story from Roberts?
Ultimately if Warrens story was stolen from Roberts but the whole event was a hoax they were ordered to spread, why undermine Larry? His story was so
close to Roberts it would serve the same purpose to fuel the hoax!
Halt actually damaged the hoax hypothesis and explanation in 1987 because he claimed Roberts story was fictitious and so was Warrens.
If there was a hoax, Halt was a huge problem. It's his own testimony and recording that suggests it's true but he denies the Roberts and Warren story
which would have been better left as honest recollections!
I think that this is hugely significant point and it can't be reasonably argued in any other way I've found.
- Halt has always maintained his own story
- Halt has the recording and memo as proof
- Halt has tried to exclude other narratives
- Halt has claimed Larry has been messed with and told Pter Robbins that he knew of the NSAS involvement with Larry.
Is it in fact Halt who feels that other narratives were created to destroy his encounter?
Was the Roberts story an attempt to unbalance the narrative away from the Halt encounter towards a more fictitious one by volume of altertive
Or was the Roberts story an attempt to undermine all of the narratives?
