I suspect he, did not find any thing, or is not being truthful about what he was looking for. IF he really did brake in to find UFO files and then did not post them if he found any I would be surprised. u seem to be uninformed ... bfore you 'suspect', you need to read more on the matter;using a dial up modem it took that dude ages to get a single image to load ... he claimed to have found info on th ematter in in form of documents ... did yo uknow in America they changed some laws overnight trying to get him ASAP in the states ... They are serious about getting their hands on him... if he real... [More]

No I believe the only important lifeform in a reality is the one at the centre of it. That lifeform shapes how its reality unfolds with its perceptions and if its perceptions allows for aliens to exist theres a good chance they will turn up. ;; i like your thinking

It's obvious they don't want to lock him up because of what he did. They want control of him because of what hes capable of, so that enemies of the US can't make him an "offer he can't refuse". I know the US like to think they police the world, but the UK should tell them to FO.

However, what he did was try an open door, and walk in. If you do that to your neighbour, that is stealing, same here. If he was half decent at data admin he would have had backups all over the planet to prove his case. He had nothing, and was pretty hopeless, that is why he was caught so easily. I do not think they would want somone so ea... [More]

Honestly, I consider him as much a victim as a perpetrator. He was convinced by the Disclosure Project and people like Steven Greer, Stanton Friedman, Paola Harris, Linda Moulton Howe, and numerous other notorious members of the UFO Hall of Shame that this kind of action might be noble. He was driven by the curiosity that these charlatans provoke in their efforts to drive book sales, speaking opportunities, conventions, TV spots, and even films now. Just a minor point, the wording of this paragraph seems to suggest that Stanton T. Friedman is one of the members of the UFO Hall of Shame you've ... [More]

Just a minor point, the wording of this paragraph seems to suggest that Stanton T. Friedman is one of the members of the UFO Hall of Shame you've posted, which isn't the case, he is infact on the UFO Hall of Fame on the same site. True in the literal sense of where he ranks on that web site, thanks for the correction DrunkDwarf.
