You have really gone off the deep end.

Note very carefully that the above statement does not in any way
preclude the possibility that other contacts were made before Joe
Sims', and in fact, given the nature of the search, such contacts
were certainly made.  The above statement confirms that Joe Sims made
the formal invitation, as would be completely appropriate.  And the
statement is, in fact, completely consistent with the testimony given
to congress.

The only question left to ponder, Mr Sondow, is who is paying you 
for this?
