I wish I'd commented on this earlier. And maybe I missed a post
of Peter's that would shed some light on what Rebecca says here.
But I was the intermediary between Peter and Budd while Peter
was writing his book, and I'm not aware that Peter ever asked
Budd for more information on the details we're talking about
here. Budd and Peter had one uncomfortable face to face meeting
(Budd was more uncomfortable than Peter was). But later on, Budd
gave Peter full answers to every question Peter asked him
through me.

As far as I know, Peter didn't ask any other abduction
investigators for these details. As I've mentioned in another
post, I suggested Peter look into what we're talking about here
-- the tiny unpublished details that, some abduction
investigators claim, remain the same in many abduction accounts.
But Peter didn't seem to think this was an important line of
inquiry. Not, of course, that he's under any obligation to
follow my advice. But if now we're going to breed some kind of
myth that Peter sought this information and was rebuffed, I have
to say that I don't think it's true.
