It’s nice to see titans in the field of fringe/UFO research sit down and speak objectively about complex situations. Which is why I applaud the recent Elizondo-Greenwald interview.
It’s no secret that I had very little respect for John, specifically in the way I perceived he carried himself in the early stages of Mr. Elizondo’s introduction to the public. It all felt very personal at a time when I was invested in the vetting surrounding Lue and his claims. I sincerely thought John was doing a disservice to the community at large with suggestive headlines & assumptions. To a degree, I still feel this is accurate.
At points I definitely took things too far in my distaste for John and his rhetoric. I posted regrettable statements about his car being burglarized due to poor karma (although I did note at the time I was relieved everyone was OK). I apologize to all for the poor decision making I exercised in posting that. I’m quite embarrassed I let my emotions get the better of me. I’m grateful for the friends I have who encouraged me to remove that post, like Andreas Freeman Stahl.
The reason why I mention this is because I do believe John acknowledged that some of his critiques of Lue did come off personally in his recent interview . Let’s also be honest, John does not suffer people he considers fools. Which can lead to some very contested conversations.
Over the past year or so, it does appear the John has adjusted his speculations away from it being significantly possible Elizondo was being untruthful. I think there were some key players in our community who helped convince John that Lue was not trying to mislead and they deserve credit one day.
So while we celebrate what looks a possible end to the Elizondo/Greenwald saga, it’s important that we remember we’re all people at the end of the day. Honor and duty go a long way with many of us and Lue can hold his head high. This was a big victory for team Elizondo . In that, it’s a victory for all of us.
