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... Peter NUFORC Listen to 'Strange Days...
