The person behind the extremely well intentioned, “The Disclosure Project” Steven Greer has always been followed by his fair share of controversy, I was still surprised to see Greer pop up when I recently happened across a repeat of an old programme from the "National Geographic Explorer" series; the episode in question was aired in 1994 and was titled, “Searching for Extraterrestrials”.
It was fairly tame and really just the usual Seth Shostak fodder, i.e. 'SETI vs The ETH' with the former smugly portraying believers of the latter as cranks, weirdoes etc.
That wasn’t what caught my attention. What did catch my attention was a younger (but strangely older looking) Greer taking small groups of people out into the Californian desert with the following voice over:
The tool is telepathy.
The goal? A very close encounter.”
And in Dr Greer’s own words:
“Primary in the event that there’s a landing, an opportune to go on board. You will - come – on - board, okay John, and err, and you need to stay behind to document that.
Err, I’ll be boarding party member number 1, we just go around, 2, 3, 4, skip you…..”
Then Greer went on to elaborate on how to set the landing/flashlights out in the event of a ‘Close approach,’ of course this was a good 6-7 years before the infamous disclosure project video was shot but I still for some reason found it somewhat alarming. I think it’s probably just seeing the ‘craziness’ that has dogged the UFO phenomenon for so long being practised and heralded by someone whom (regardless what I’d read) I’d always hoped and thought was above such silliness. (I’m not talking about the general skywatching but rather the claims that Greer was in telepathic contact with the ETs in the UFOs and as such was beckoning them to land).
This was at least three years before he ran into copyright infringement claims from the UFO Research Coalition regarding the claim that he, “Improperly duplicated and distributed a copyrighted document referred to as: The Best Available Evidence”. There was a multitude of charges related to this, more of which can be read here.
Or the claims that in Greer's book, ‘Extraterrestrial Contact’ Greer claimed to have been directly briefed about UFOs by R. James Woolsey, the former director of the CIA, at a dinner party. Shortly after Greer published his book with his apparently exaggerated account of what had taken place, Woolsey and others present at the dinner sent Greer a letter trying to set the record straight.

But like I say I’d always held onto an (unsubstantiated) belief that he wasn’t really as ‘out there’ as had been previously claimed…..
