Jack Brewer recently posted a short, cogent essay defending the reality of UFO “mirage men” — government disinformation agents whose work propelled (propels?) UFO interest and inquiry in decades gone by. His post most immediately defends the perspective of James Carrion, who focuses on this sort of thing in his own research. Carrion recently wrote an essay on his own blog entitled “Human Deception at Play during the UFO Wave of 1947,” which illustrates (with circumstantial documentation) how “mirage men” could have been involved in UFO events of that famous year.
I’m in agreement with Jack and James. I don’t see any reason to conclude that the approach isn’t plausible or that Carrion and others should abandon the trajectory.
