Whitley Strieber's latest is, as usual, both naive and thought-provoking. I don't believe for a moment that Strieber is a disinformation agent, as some have proposed, but I'm convinced he'd make a good one.

Does anyone know if Whitley Strieber had any relationship with the U.S. military and/or intelligence agencies prior to the start of his "Communion" experiences? I know this sounds like pure "conspiracy theory," but both elements of the U.S. government were performing some extremely weird (and highly secret) experimentation with mind-altering drugs starting in the mid-to-late 1950's (and quite likely before that).

And from what I've read, many of their experimental subjects were not necessarily "volunteers" either (taking a page from the book of Nazi science) or even aware that they were being experimented on....

Fascinatingly, Strieber admits to being used for strange military testing as a child ...

There are also those strange childhood incidents recounted in his Secret School book, if any of that is to be believed.

Strieber's a complicated case. He's wondered if perhaps the experiments he suffered as a child might have been an attempt to access the "visitors" -- an idea that occultists might find appealing.

Of course, maybe he's just nuts and making it all up, but I don't think so.

The best disinformation agents are the ones who are convinced they are not.

We have been using "Nazi Science" for over 60 years. Strieber isn't the only one who claims this.

Sometimes when you ingest the beast, you become the beast.

Yeah, I know it's primitism, but it works for me.

mac -- Now that I think about it, I do recall reading (probably on PB) about Strieber being experimented on as a child and the military connection with that. Call me a paranoid conspiratorialist or whatever, but I do tend to believe that secret "mind control" of this sort may be the explanation for a lot of weird events (even including Lee Harvey Oswald being the self-described "patsy" for whoever really killed JFK -- I know, I know....)
