For a man who supposedly cherishes his privacy, Eleazar Benavides, aka Pfc. Eli Benjamin aka The Mystery Lieutenant in Adam Dew's Roswell Slides film trailer, sure gets around. He can be seen starting at 10:20 in this episode of the new Canadian television series UFOs Declassified.
Not only does he appear in this episode, but so does his photo from the Roswell base yearbook from 1947 - you know, the one that Anthony Bragalia went ballistic about when Tim Printy sent it to me and I published it a few days ago? You know, the one that specifically identifies "Benjamin" as Benavides? Yeah... that one.
As usual, I'm the bad guy here, but that's because I happened to be first out of the gate with what was already known to many privately, and what was easily discovered by anyone with a little spare time on their hands and a commitment to the whole truth, and not the skewed self-serving version that Bragalia and his cohorts choose to present. Bragalia is also upset that I published a photo of Benavides' house, which anyone can find with Google Earth, and says that it served no journalistic purpose. I beg to differ - it was important to show that Benavides and the "witness" in Dew's trailer are one and the same. It was Dew, after all, who filmed in his driveway. I could have published Benavides' address and phone number as well, but did not (even though those are also publicly available), as there was no reason to do so. The photo of his home was enough to establish the link that, given their track record, one could reasonably expect the Dream Teamers to otherwise deny.
Meanwhile, in somewhat related news, the Halifax Police Department are still waiting for that complaint from Bragalia to be filed against me. I know, because I checked. I assume the police in Tim Printy's neck of the woods are also still waiting. Perhaps Bragalia hasn't filed his threatened complaints yet because he's so been so busy, what with virtually everyone outing Benavides now, including Bragalia's research partner and fellow "Dream Teamer" Kevin Randle. I presume the charges are on the verge of being filed in Randle's hometown of Cedar Rapids as I type.
