If what Streiber states in his writings is true, he deserves empathy. If it's to sell books, well, that is another matter.On Whitley Streiber, I've read his stuff and I liked Secret School. He is a good story teller even if you reserve your belief on his claims. I just picked up his latest book Solving The Communion Enigma and I was surprised to find how much of his personal circumstances are in it and they reveal a side of Streiber that evokes an empathy for him as a fellow human being and in doing so tends to make you more open to believing that his stories have some basis in reality. Like I've always said, something strange is going on.
