Hi, when you get a chance, can you look into this user's changes? I'm not overly familiar with the lore regarding the articles so I can't tell if it's accurate or them throwing in their own speculation.
I think the anon is correct, although there is slightly conflicting information about this. One email says:
">I'd like to investigate the possibility of resurrecting
>the bovine manipulation project (MJID-9803HU8932), with
>an eye towards recreating the "Gray" lifeform -- while
>the project was deemed a failure at the time, it _was_
>successful as a propaganda tactic in diverting attention
>away from actual Dreamland research."
which I would say confirms they're not really aliens and are meant as more of a diversion. Although it might be slightly speculative to say the idea is to discredit any whistle-blowers rather than just confuse the public. Do you think the current phrasing should be reworded at all? Thanks for asking!
Ok, thanks for that. I'd probably reword it just to remove the whistle-blower part then, as that email shows it was a diversion, but can't say for certain if it was also meant to discredit any potential whistle blowers.
