Can you tell me if I can use expressions such as "As has been observed/pointed out by..." and "As observed/pointed out by..." interchangeably? Are they both correct?

@dalehileman,
What is the difference?

For example,
If there is a sentence: "Mr X observes that..."
I may say: "As observed by Mr X..."

If there is a sentence: "Mr X has observed that..."
I may say: "As has been observed by Mr X..." or "As observed by Mr X..."

Is that right?
