If Paul Hellyer had not been the Canadian equivalent of the Secretary of Defense, a political appointee, he would not make the news at all. He is not knowledgeable about UFOs in any sense of the term. But he attended a conference in Hawaii a few years ago where Steven Greer made an appearance, and since then Greer and others have stepped all over themselves calling him the "Right Honourable Paul Hellyer" as if he had some sort of special secrets to share. Like many of us, he's interested in the subject, but that's all. He has nothing special to share other than a fifty-year-old title he no longer holds.
I'm surprised the old fallacy of "he's just trying to sell books" hasn't yet been trotted out, sure he has one but I think its only sold a few thousand copies,

...Yes, it does really irk debunkers that someone credible and known is speaking about the ET reality.
Now, who would you choose to believe, and Ex-Canadian Defense Minister or some anonymous person with possible hidden agendas?...

It seems to me, in my own opinion, that he is regurgitating a lot of second hand information. I am sure he has every reason to believe what he is saying is the truth. He seems sincere in his beliefs, however as pointed out his status has given him a lot more attention than someone without public status who is well versed in Ufology.
His claim seems to be a mixture of some new age, some respectable military officers or their associates accounts and a bit of his own experience.
What he says I find fascinating personally as it gets my imagination juices flowing but I cant help shake the feeling he is a puppet of sorts. He has definitely convinced himself enough to influence the publics awareness to his beliefs.

Charlie Hall I believe is a disinfo agent or guy desperate to sell his books. Where Charles Hall story falls down mainly is that he has claimed the Tall white Aliens lived in Area53 right which is near the range of the Nellis Airforce base. He claims many USAF personnel had direct or indirect experiences with Tall whites. and yet we have seen no ex-USAF personnel ever come forward to collaborate his story.
