Whats wrong with the example you are useing? Both Mack Brazel and his daughter Bessie claimed they found weather balloons before! They are both primary sources. She only changed her story to say that she thinks she was remembering an earlier event when she found a weather balloon with her dad. Thats consistent with Mack's statements at the time that he'd found weather balloons before.
L.S., nice to hear from you!
Your correct about Bessie Brazel being a primary source. Goes to show you that I've not paid much attention to the Roswell debate(s). I wanted to show Tony that his statement concerning Bessie Brazel "recanting" her earlier story was indicative of what I've seen (in passing) concerning the Roswell story...not unlike others that I'm well familiar with.
From a Wiki article:
Most of the above actually came from Kevin Randle and a co-author. Tony referred me to "Witnesses to Roswell" concerning Bessie Brazel's recanting of her original statements which I unfortunately don't have on my book shelf. BTW, this shows Tony's tangential line of thinking since Bessie Brazel's statements/recantation has nothing to do with Cox's "shoot to kill" order. Rather than telling me "yes/no" that he had attempted to find out what else could have been stored in the hangar, if anything, he throws out Bessie Brazel. I'm disappointed with Tony in this regard since he is a key component on Kevin Randle's Roswell "Dream Team."
