Response from Whitley to Mr. Black

>From Whitley Strieber

First, the UFO video that I was referring to still seems
perfectly authentic to me. If the fact that it was shot 40 miles
from Gulf Breeze somehow turns it into a hoax, I would be
fascinated to know why.

Second, I have had one telephone conversation with Ed Walters in
ten years. I have never met him personally, to my knowledge.
However, I do believe that his pictures were authentic because I
know another witness, a retired Marine fighter pilot whom I would
trust with my life, who saw the object a couple of days before
Walters first observed it.

Third, I am sick of people challenging me in stupid ways. The two
lie detector tests that I had control over are fully disclosed in
my earlier books, and have been discussed by Ed Conroy in his
book Report on Communion. The other two were administered on
behalf of media organizations. One, administered on behalf of the
BBC, was the reason that I was allowed to discuss Communion on
BBC programming in 1988. Had I failed it, they did not plan to
allow me on. The second was a voice-stress test administered
without my knowledge and discussed on a television program called

All of this information is readily accessible to any competent
researcher. The fact that Mr. Black appears to know none of it, I
believe, speaks for itself.
