If either are correct, where did Burroughs really get his injuries?
.......In the summer of 1988 I had an opportunity to speak with May Pang about her and Lennon’s experience while sitting in her New York city apartment,
Finally Bob Gruen arrived and John told the photographer what had transpired. Gruen......asked him " did you call the newspaper?" and he said "I’m not going to call up the newspaper and say, This is John Lennon and I saw a flying saucer last night"
.........May replied "Oh no, 74 wasn’t John’s first sighting". "In fact he told me that more than once he suspected he had been "abducted" as a child back in Liverpool!" "And he felt that experience was responsible for making him feel different from other people for the rest of his life". "Abducted" I said. "You mean by aliens?" May Pang answered. "Yes, but John didn’t go into detail about it". I was stunned, but that’s another story…
Over the years I have been told you have tried to keep me out of different shows about Bentwaters, for example the ABC, SciFi and History Channel productions. I was told by the producers you had no idea how to get hold of me, yet you were working with Jim Penniston who had all my contact details and he passed them on to you.
With regard to the movie Out of the Blue produced and directed by Mr. James Fox, you told him I was not out with you on the third night. Col. Halt when I first went public with my experience stating I was involved in the first and third night, you said I was never involved at all in the third night. Well your tape proved that I was. You then said I never came forward and met up with you. However, I have a taped interview where you state that I did indeed come forward and met up with your group.
I have been told that your reasoning was that I was loose cannon and would talk too much to the press about the incident. You have now gone on the record and said we were exposed to was something Extra-Terrestrial in nature. What could I have ever said that would have caused more of a stir than that? I for one have no idea for sure what we were exposed to. How do you know for sure that the events were extra-terrestrial?

That's probably not a bad theory at all.
However I am puzzled why Halt (belatedly) wrote his infamous memo compressing the events and getting the dates badly mixed up. This is all just a theory as well but suspect it was a 'red herring put on ice'. Just in case something leaked out about what was really going on. Unfortunately it was. This then forced Halt into a role he never expected he would have to take on as the story grew arms and legs.
I think he purposely acted the way he did throughout the incident to play out the UFO story to the lower ranks involved under orders. A story that he has both played down and exaggerated when needed. I think, despite his claims, he has been well briefed over what went on. I also suspect things went wrong and have affected many of those closely involved. This is why the UFO story has been allowed to prevail. Because the real truth is something that has to remain buried to this day.
Like I said just a theory...
If your theory is correct and the UFO story was just a cover-up, we cannot rely on any of the military witnesses anymore. So we’ll have to rely on the civilian witnesses… Apart from Gerry Harris, who else have we got..?
