Eleazar Benavides Strikes Again!

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.

I have as much doubt concerning this slide sleight of hand as I do any frivolous "lawsuit" being filed. In other words, the chances of both exaggerations being realities, the chances are nil.
They fit hand in glove.

Anthony Bragalia = Kal K. Korff when it comes to threats. I don't take either of them seriously. The real world of not-crazy people doesn't either.

Over on the conjectures blog, Tony has said that this old man never came forward. He was found and persuaded to talk but he did so reluctantly.

I don't understand why tony does not seem to care that someone had to identify this guy also, contact him, probably on multiple occasions, and go to his home. Yet the possibility of anyone going to do this again means the old guy could be in danger and open to harassment.

Because Bragalia is both delusional and a hypocrite.

"Because Bragalia is both delusional and a hypocrite."

I humbly submit once again for your consideration, PK, that 'Bragalia' is none of these... he is a "catfish", since none of the "Dreamers" (or indeed Rich Reynolds) have ever met his persona face-to-face, with the "supposed" exception of of the clumsy oaf Tom Carey.

Once again, "AJB" is the Manti Teo of Roswell "research":

I accept that Anothony Bragalia actually exists. Having said that, a researcher should be willing to put his or her bona fides out for public display. In Bragalia's case, he is using his real name, so there is no reason for him not to do so. Where did he go to school; what degree(s) does he have; what has he published; what is his work history? In short, all of the information that reasonable and objective people need to see from a purported researcher to help determine whether he is credible or not. I'll say this about Randle - we know exactly who he is. Ditto me. Ditto any respectable researcher or commentator. Bragalia? Not so much. Curious. For someone so keen on digging into other people's past, he seems to be very cautious about revealing details of his own. One wonders what the reason for that might be.
