The problem I have with that statement.. Don't people undergoing cancer treatments have those EXACT side effects?

Of course.. Their radiation is much more focused, whereas this would be full body exposure.. and I think many of those side effects may be more on the chemo than the radiation side.

So.. I'm not sure I buy into that.. but.. I also don't quite buy into the large number of helicopters that.. Seemingly couldn't possibly have happened.

Here are quotes from 2 different doctors who examined Betty Cash:

That second quote was omitted in the book written about about the case to play up the "radiation" angle. If they in fact were exposed to radiation, I doubt a doctor would conclude that "there are no signs of serious injury to date".

Found that pretty interesting too.
I don't think the Air Force has EVER had Chinooks. Interesting that they described them as having 'United States Air Force' painted on the side--I always remembered seeing 'USAF' primarily. Maybe it was different in '80. Either way, it piques my interest that by the time of the UM segment, the women described the helicopters as 'military' and 'Army', as the U.S. Army certainly has CH-47s (the flying schoolbus, we called it).

Another thing I always found odd about the story is that CH-47s are not attack helicopters. They lift personnel and equipment and are typically only armed with machine guns. Why would 23 of these things be tailing a UFO? Whether it posed a threat or whether it was an asset in need of protection, one might surmise it'd be followed by something with a lot more teeth than a lumbering, poorly armed Chinook.

What I don't understand is that if this was a hoax to scam money out of the government, why not fake an injury at work or something more believable than being burned by a UFO being trailed by the Air Force? It just doesn't make any sense. I think they saw something that night (perhaps a test flight by the Air Force or an airplane since the airport was close to this sighting) and got sick after the sighting and legitimately believed that this was some sort of "agent orange" type situation and exaggerated their stories (and maybe staged some of their injuries) to make it more believable.
