is Barry Eaton's recent excellent interview of Peter Khoury and
myself. Barry Eaton's interview first appeared on his Sydney,
NSW, Australia FM 99.3 radio show on 2NSB North Shore on
Wednesday September 28th 2005. It will be available directly on
the web site and later via its archived shows for a while.

I particularly enjoyed the interview because it gave me the
opportunity to catch up with Barry again. The first time I
encountered him was back in 1991 when he was the MC for Gary
Wiseman's highly successfully UFO conference held at the Sebel
Town House in Sydney. This conference also featured my friends
Jenny Randles from the UK and Jerome Clark from the US.

I remembered that Barry was fielding questions after my lecture,
which was on physical evidence of UFO reality, one of my long
term focuses in this subject. I had given what I thought was a
somewhat conservative presentation anchored in hard data that
argued for a physical reality for UFOs. So I was hoping to get
some intelligent questions on the subject of UFO reality. The
first question fell far short of that and turned out to be a
question that Barry even characterised as a pretty silly
question. He was asking me to confirm whether I was a CIA

Only a week or two earlier I had been fingered by a Nexus group
video presenter as being an ASIO agent! Fortunately I over heard
that bit of stupidity and wild and wooly thinking and confronted
the fellow on the spot. He was clearly apologetic, but I was
more interested in getting him to try to critically think
through his silly claim.

Back to the Sebel Town house lecture and the question as to
whether I was CIA, I was thinking how to respond to this
silliness. If you try to seriously respond and deny it you are
accused of lying (assuming a conspiratorial believer menality),
if you try the humorous route one is accused of avoiding the
issue, and if one tries the joking approach of agreeing to the
fantasy, you run the risk of such people actually believing you.
Surprisingly it was the then president of the Australian
Skeptics Barry Williams who came to my rescue! Barry and I had
jousted on the subject of UFOs from time to time. Barry was in
the audience and interjected saying , I know Bill and yes he is
CIA! Yes, he works in the food industry and he is in the
Catering Institute of Australia (CIA). Barry new that I worked
in the food industry as a chemist and laboratory/quality
manager. He invented the Catering Institute of Australia
connection. While I did work in the food industry at the time,
the humorous connection was a good healthy way to diffuse a
silly question and the audience seemed to agree.

Later I sought out the fellow who asked the question to give a
more considered reality check for his rampant delusions about
me. I found him manning his stand, promoting a Nazi UFO theory
and other conspiratorial takes. It seemed clear to me that no
matter what I said and no matter what evidence I highlighted to
the contrary I would be viewed in a conspiratorial light!

I welcomed Barry Eaton's good sense and Barry Williams unlikely
defence of me.

I hope you find the interviews with Peter Khoury and myself of
interest, and that it encourages you to consider the subject
more deepily, including getting into the detailed evidence my
book on Peter Khoury's experience presents: Hair Of The Alien -
available via


or via various bookstores.
