Columnist Debunks Bob Lazar’s Story on Area 51
A columnist who called himself “The Contrarian” published an article at News24.com in August 24, 2012 debunking Bob Lazar. Lazar discussed his experiences on Coast to Coast AM about reverse engineering of extraterrestrial aircraft that crashed in Area 51.
Bob Lazar is currently the president of United Nuclear, specializing research & development of sophisticated technologies, design and manufacture of equipment for nuclear weapons industry, and retail of scientific equipment and supplies. He was connected in the U.S. Department of Naval Intelligence at the Nevada Test Site as senior staff physicist and was working at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a nuclear physicist.
Lazar was first put into the spotlight in 1989 when he told an incredible story of his firsthand experience with nine alien discs. According to Lazar, the discs were kept secretly by the American government. His revelation made him the subject of world-wide curiosity, controversy, and speculation.
Credentials of Lazar are impressive; he got a degree from MIT and another from CalTech. He was one of the few individuals hired by the U.S. government and given access to the alleged extraterrestrial spacecraft that crashed in Area 51. Lazar said that he was hired to do reverse engineering of the propulsion systems in alien aircrafts.
The Contrarian says in his article debunking Lazar that there is no evidence Lazar attended CalTech or MIT, no evidence that he has any of the degrees he claims, and that his interviews are inconsistent, evasive and many holes.
The Contrarian further points out that even Stanton Friedman, who occasionally entertains claims about UFO-alien subject, could not find any documents that would support Lazar’s background in MIT or CalTech.
Lazar already addressed these skeptical claims in a 2009 interview on Coast to Coast Am. According to Lazar, he started noticing that some documents for his background were gone and began thinking that the next thing to evaporate will be him.
