Jack Brewer has a fascinating interview with ex-CIA employee Kit Green, the longtime paranormal enthusiast who worked with Hal Puthoff and Jacques Vallée on so-called “real-life X-Files.” Green is the author of one of the studies recently released by the Pentagon that sparked a tabloid frenzy with claims that the government had identified specific health effects from UFO encounters and alien abduction. Now, speaking with Brewer, Green makes clear that he did not find any evidence of space aliens, despite the claims made for his research. I’ll leave you to read the whole thing for yourself, but I will highlight a couple of key points, starting with Green saying “In my paper, I didn't think any of the stories were necessarily valid,” a rather shocking claim when writing a paper looking for evidence of anomalous health effects. Nevertheless, his conclusions stand at odds with Garry Nolan’s implications of interdimensional mind parasites infecting the brains of susceptible geniuses:
Over the course of the 75-minute conversation taking place by phone on April 6, Green unequivocally stated he believes human beings are responsible for producing the technology that ultimately injured patients in the cases he examined. I'd add that nowhere but UFO World would his position be considered controversial or outside the box, should such cases actually prove to be indicative of encounters with aerial vehicles as Green indicates he believes.
