Dr. Melba Ketchum responds to the document leaks on her Facebook page:
I am so upset that the reviews got leaked. That means I was once again betrayed by an insider. On the up side, I feel a huge relief about it. Now I don’t have to sit on this horrible secret anymore. The world now knows how unethically the scientific has behaved. It also knows that we DID pass peer review and with reviews that came from geneticists that work with whole genomes. At least that is what I was told.
Funny thing, the reviewer number one that leaked the reviews and then went on to bash the manuscript publicly on some blogtalk thing states in the second review that he isn’t qualified to review it.
Bottom line, Sasquatch exists. Scientifically proven and passed by peer review by other scientists.
As far as all of the documents that were leaked, they are authentic. I didn’t leak them though. Some submitters as well as others associated with the project had access to this information so I don’t know who did. Those communications are not supposed to be leaked. So if anyone gets sued, it won’t be me. They can subpoena the blogger’s email trail. I actually am happy about the leak though. At least now everything I have said can be authenticated including the ridiculous and biased nature of the reviews. Now people will know the truth and that we did pass peer review.Dr. Melba Ketchum
