The last large group in the western world who can be freely laughed at and mocked are the alien abductees. Minority groups such as racial or sexual minorities, the mentally ill or the disabled are protected from discrimination and derision. But let an abductee report publicly that he or she was raped, and they will have the same experience that Whitley Strieber had: their suffering will evoke sneering laughter from the media, they will lose their social standing, and they will end up isolated outsiders.

But not to Anne Strieber, who has more knowledge of the experience than any other researcher, and the wisdom and open-mindedness to get abductees to tell us not just what they hope we will believe, but their TRUE stories as they actually remember them.
