I had been very hesitant to post this Boyd Bushman video in Out There because I did not feel that it was truthful, to be blunt. My primary reason for this is that it presents a simplistic and almost childish vision of ‘the aliens.’ Whatever the origin of the experience of UFOs and their apparent occupants, it is very complicated and multilayered, and this is simple, simple stuff. But I had no factual basis for disbelieving it. However, Whitley Strieber, it turns out, knows a respected reporter who interviewed Mr. Bushman in 2012, and came away with two impressions: 1. his story was very weak, as was his description of his background; 2. he and his wife both appeared quite uneasy while the documentary crew involved was there.
Here is what the reporter has to say:
So there you have it. Incidentally, I am not Whitley, for those of you who assume that I am. I have run Out There for a long time, and prefer to remain anonymous.
