Dwight, et al,

I would like to help pile fuel on the nice "fire" you have built
underneath Reed's claims. I have spoken out against this alleged
case since it first surfaced on Coast to Coast, and it seems to
have a Hydra-like ability to resurrect itself.

I returned home, late one evening, in 1997 or 1998, I believe it
was, and turned on the radio just in time to hear the guest
comment that he had called the National UFO Reporting Center in
Seattle, following the incident in October 1996, and that he had
spoken with me over the Hotline. He averred that he was
disappointed with my lackluster response to his story, and that
he had gone elsewhere with his "report."

Indeed, he must have been VERY disappointed, given that I wasn't
even in the country at the time he allegedly called me! I had
spent most of October 1996 in Australia at the conference in
Brisbane, and I then spoke in Sydney. I just checked my
passport, and it indicates that I had entered Australia on
October 10th, 1996, and departed on October 28th. Several
members of this list were present at that conference, as well.

In fact, on the date of the alleged event with "Freddie the
alien," which Reed claims had occurred in the Cascade Mountains
of Washington State, I was snorkeling on the Great Barrier
Reef...photos of which I can provide.

Also, Kathleen Andersen, who was a member of MUFON in Washington
State at the time Reed first began making his claims, realized
that she had known Reed and his cohort in West Seattle, for
quite some time. He did not have a Ph.D., at that time, and I
suspect that he still does not have that degree. She did a very
nice job of documenting all of the facts I cite above, plus
others, which serve to poke fatal holes in Reed's story.

Another individual who supports the Reed story is Jaime Mausson.
Reed was invited to Mexico City to speak about his alleged
encounter, despite my attempts to convince Jaime that the whole
affair was a hoax. He wouldn't hear of it, and proceeded to have
Reed spread the story all over Mexico.

Mark Twain was correct, in making his comment about the
difference between a liar and an honest man. He pointed out that
the liar has to have a better memory...
