Bob Lazar, he of the Area 51, Element 115, alien-government conspiracy, has never been able to produce a single shred of evidence to back up his various claims to degrees from places like MIT, and advanced professional qualifications. Needless to say, this calls his credibility into "question" (er, to put it very "politely").
Now, Michael Salla, who seems to have never met a "whistleblower" he didn't like, claims, as have others, against all logic and reason, that the government can completely erase a person's record, and that this is exactly what they did to Lazar. To this amazing allegation, I can only respond as follows:
Lazar, as Stan Friedman, I, and many others have pointed out, should have some record of his credentials. I, for example, am a lawyer (non-practising status). Want the proof? Here is my Nova Scotia Barristers' Society certificate from 1993. I also have my university degrees (Acadia, class of '89; Dalhousie, class of '92), my old yearbooks (I had more hair then), pictures of me with classmates from both my undergrad years and law school (often drunk), papers I wrote (with the notes on them from the professors), medals and awards won. I can produce invoices for every year over the past decade that I have paid the Barristers' Society my annual fees. And so on, and on, and on...
The government couldn't erase my past, even if they wanted to (note to the NSA / CIA / CSIS / MJ-12 / U-13 - this is NOT a challenge).
Even if they could get the universities, all of my old pals, the guy who ran the pizza place in Wolfville, N.S., where we got all of our food from (we ordered so much, we used to joke that we paid for the Audi he drove), etc., to lie (some of my pals would probably do it just to see me squirm a bit), I would be able to produce documentation to back up my claims (including the D- I got on a paper in intro French back in 1985, alas).
Nada. Zilch. Bupkus. Nothing. Rien (still working on my French...).
As Stan has said, he is a fraud, and his claims are "bunk." Anyone who believes him is just that - a "believer," in the worst possible sense of the term.
And yet, a new "article" making the rounds on the Internet (see Frank Warren's blog, www.frankwarren.blogspot.com, where he has posted a copy), asks the question if Lazar was right after all.
Will it never end...
