Okay, Dan--I finally watched the special, and while the photo may have been debunked, no one debunked any of the anecdotal claims from natives and US GIs I pointed out have existed for decades that asserted Earhart had crashed in the Marshall's and been taken to Saipan.

            This would, of course, be the same Japanese who refused to let the US search the Marshalls, where she allegedly crashed. I certainly don't put it past a barbaric government like that to hold her and... more

              "Barbaric"? Ouch. That covers a lot of territory, lots of governments, some close to home. Anyway, yes, one might question whether the Japanese government was being sincere, but this new evidence... more

          Vince, like you, I'm not staying awake at night worrying about Earhart's fate. I think the simplest explanation, for which there is evidence from Earhart herself -- she radioed she was low on gas --... more
