You imply here that Budd Hopkins shares completely the views of
David Jacobs about a dramatic take-over of the human species. They
are good friends, but your statement is plainly false. Budd has
departed many times from that publicly. Here are two examples:

In the MUFON UFO Journal of July 1998 (No 369, page 10), Dwight
Connelly interviewed Budd and asked him what he thought of David
Jacobs' latest book The Threat. He replied:

"I couldn't have written that book. It's a marvelous book, but
it's not in my nature to increase the number of dark clouds over

Here is another quote, from his bulletin of the Intruders
Foundation of October 1997. In his article, entitled Good
Aliens? Bad Aliens?, he writes:

"The answer is that I've seen no evidence to support the idea
that the aliens are "bad" malevolent enemies bent on destruction
and conquest". But he adds that he has seen no evidence either
hat they are "good".

I have read his books and articles, I have met him several
times, have listened to several of his conferences, and I have
never heard him say that he agreed with the Jacobs scenario. In
short you have made again a wrong statement.

Budd Hopkins, in his refutation just published, points to many
others. Why don't you make a good pause and think about all
