Leah Haley Abduction - Fact Or Fantasy?

Leah Haley Abduction - Fact Or Fantasy?

Date: Winter - 1995

Location: America's Deep South

In 1990, Leah Haley remembered an alien abduction.

She recalls her experience as if it were a dream, later seeking hypnosis.

Born in 1951 in Decatur, AL, Haley had a career as a certified business administrator & author.

Her original claims were that extraterrestrials were the culprits.

However, it took years to even fathom the idea of military involvement.Through select Freedom of Information Act, U.S. Patent Office documents, and interviews with abductees in subsequent years, Haley believed she was not chosen at random.

She has endured an abduction with her sister and been offered jobs randomly by total strangers for positions at nearby military bases, even recognizing fellow abductees in her conscious life.

Former self described alien abductee Leah Haley has revised her perspectives about her experiences of high strangeness to conclude that no alien abductions ever took place in her life.

She now completely attributes her remarkable perceptions to having been an involuntary research subject.

Commenting on literal alien abduction from her home in Pensacola, FL, Haley stated that it doesn't happen.

Haley attracted widespread attention within the UFO community in 1993 with the publication of her book, in which she described her extraordinary experiences consisting of fragmented memories of UFOs and apparent non-human beings.

She became a well known speaker and was commonly sought for interviews.

10 years later she published Unlocking Alien Closets: Abductions, Mind Control and Spirituality, further documenting her descent into an increasingly complex web of deceit, disinformation and character assassination within ufology.

Sales of her books climbed well into the thousands although word of mouth was virtually the only means of marketing.

Haley initially thought aliens were responsible for her experiences but that changed following years of investigation.

She long acknowledged military personnel were involved in her experiences to some extent, but she fully re-evaluated circumstances after viewing select Freedom of Information Act and U.S. Patent Office documents.

Haley further based her revised conclusions on hundreds of interactions with abductees and researchers, as well as having mysterious individuals enter and later abruptly vanish from her life.

She is now thoroughly convinced mind control experiments are responsible for what became known as the alien abduction phenomenon.

I really can explain every alien abduction away using human technology, Haley said.

Commenting on what she termed legitimate reports of abduction, I don't know for sure, but every case that I know very, very well, every single one of them, if I probe deeply enough, I'm going to find that there were humans here and there too, she continued.

That tells me that it was a human instigated situation.

I can't think of a single case, not a single one, that I've really delved into that didn't have humans in it too, so I just don't think alien abductions are happening.

I don't know, but I just don't think they are.

Haley makes an interesting point regarding the presence of humans in these scenarios, if we can take these probings into the phenomenon seriously, no pun intended.

However, her logic is flawed.

The presence of humans does not directly imply human instigation.

If all reports of alien abduction contained dogs, that would not imply dog instigated abductions.

The polite yet confidently direct woman who came to be embraced, for better or worse, by the UFO community said she was born in 1951 in Decatur, AL.

According to her books, Haley earned a bachelor's degree in secondary education from the University of Alabama, a master's degree in education from the University of North Alabama and a master's degree in business administration from Mississippi State University.

She said that she is a Certified Public Accountant, currently employed in the field.

I first contacted Haley via email in June of 2009 due to my interest in her reported experiences which involved apparent military personnel.

Our interactions led to me interviewing her over the course of a couple days in March, 2011.

As much an artist as she is a business administrator or anything else, Haley loves to write.

She enjoys many forms of art and particularly appreciates theater.

While the name Leah Ann Haley will be forever joined with the UFO phenomenon, the woman came to prioritize a healthy social life and enjoying herself, as was indicated by the presence in her den of gifts from her birthday celebration.

If I put the gifts away, I'll forget to send thank you notes, she explained with a laugh.

During a drive through downtown Pensacola, she fondly pointed out locations where bands regularly perform.

She enjoys concerts, and told me about attending a Lynyrd Skynyrd gig, remarking that she of course likes the band's music due to her roots in (Sweet Home) Alabama.

Haley developed a strong faith which she attributes in part to her traumatic experiences and the stress of going public with her story.

She enjoys attending casual worship services held Sunday mornings at picnic tables on Pensacola Beach.

I think that's so cool, she said while describing the services.

Her first marriage ended as she became increasingly committed to investigating her experiences and publicly sharing her findings.

Was her involvement in ufology responsible for her failed marriage?

Oh, yeah, she responded decisively, absolutely.

Her status as a relatively high profile, controversial figure severely strained family relations, but Haley feels she picked up the pieces as well as could be expected.

Take her or leave her, Leah Haley is willing to be scrutinized.

Other high profile members of the UFO community often hide from objective evaluation, reciting their largely unchallenged rhetoric with relentless and annoying persistence.

Contrastingly, Haley at least seemingly provides us with a refreshingly transparent view of the path of an experiencer of high strangeness who embarked upon a sincere journey of investigation and self discovery.

It is only natural that such a journey included evolving perspectives, changing over time, and it appears Haley happens to be secure enough to tell us when she changes her mind.

The most important thing about my case, is that my memories were of alien abductions, and that after spending thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars and years and years and years of research trying to find evidence that alien abductions occurred, the only evidence I found is of human instigated mind control, she said.

Haley cited circumstances such as confirmed mind control operations and Freedom of Information Act documents, substantiating details of such black budget operations, as supporting evidence for her perspectives.

Suggesting the general population lacks adequate understandings of relevant issues, such as conditioned behavior and subliminal programming, doing my lectures and radio shows I met people all over the country, and most of the abductees just accept what's happened at face value, Haley stated.

What they remember, to them, is what happened.

Very few of us have ever questioned it to the extent that you and I obviously have.

Haley cited U.S. Patent Office documents, demonstrating evolution of electronic technology and non lethal weapons that correlates with the time line of reports of alien abduction.

Advances in technology during the 20th century included using electromagnetic frequencies, EMFs, to remotely entrain brain waves, induce altered states of consciousness and transfer an otherwise inaudible voice directly into the brain.

Overexposure to EMFs was documented to cause hallucinations, nausea, short term amnesia, missing time, and reddened skin, circumstances which became staples of abductee testimonies.

Haley has claimed to have been interrogated and tortured by military personnel, but do not expect her to name alleged perpetrators.

Though much speculation has circulated about Haley's alleged abusers, she is well aware she cannot prove accusations and therefore chooses to withhold public comment on identities.

She also claimed to have been approached repeatedly by mysterious people interested in her experiences, and on at least one occasion such a person apparently claimed to be acting on behalf of intelligence officials, Haley believed she confirmed the claim to a reasonable extent.

Haley met Marc Davenport at the 1993 Ozark UFO Conference, he attended her lecture and approached her afterword, finding her presentation of interest.

Like Haley, Davenport was a researcher, author & speaker, both discovered many mutual interests.

They eventually married and plunged ever deeper into the world of ufology.

The duo spent extended periods of time conducting research and presenting their work through Greenleaf Publications, a corporation founded by Haley in 1992 and subsequently jointly operated by the couple.

It was with Davenport's help as a researcher and support as a friend that Haley dissected the world of military intelligence and black budget research projects.

It was like a progression with me until I finally came to the conclusion that everything with me was human instigated, Leah remarked.

That's where the evidence pointed, I didn't find any concrete evidence, no absolute concrete evidence of aliens, but plenty of evidence of human intervention.

Such evidence included 2 events reportedly occurring the morning of June 16, 2000.

Haley experienced abduction like visions, non ordinary states of consciousness and the sensation of hearing voices in her head.

Haley was home alone during the second episode, which also included paralysis.

Davenport returned unexpectedly, observing a helicopter hovering within 100' of their house.

The helicopter soon departed, leaving Davenport to find Haley ill and disoriented inside the home.

It was therefore not only Davenport's help as a colleague, but also his experience as a direct witness, that assisted Haley in reevaluating her experiences.

Davenport continued to report on mind control and non lethal weapons.

In 2005 Davenport was diagnosed with what Haley called an unusual form of cancer, he lost his life to what proved to be the painful and disabling illness.

Does Haley think Davenport's cancer was intentionally induced?

I will go to my grave believing so, she said.

Haley's experiences included missing time, disturbing body markings and a retrieved possible implant, in addition to interactions with mysterious strangers and military personnel.

Her search for answers included regressive hypnosis sessions conducted by John Carpenter, a mental health counselor who served as the MUFON director of abduction research during the early 1990s.

For what is in all likelihood a variety of reasons, Haley's mental imagery during the sessions included implications of aliens and emotional trauma.

Carpenter conducted some 14 regressive hypnosis sessions with Haley, encouraging her to accept alien abduction, before selling her case file.

In what became known as the Carpenter Affair, Carpenter betrayed 140 clients and alleged alien abductees when he accepted $14,000 for their case files.

The purchaser was Robert Bigelow, whose activities and associates never stray far from controversy.

Non lethal weapons expert and consultant to the CIA, Colonel John B. Alexander, was termed a science advisor to Bigelow at the time.

When asked how she now feels about Carpenter, Haley took a long breath and exhaled deliberately.

She replied that she thinks Carpenter was manipulated into his actions, but that does not mean she completely absolves him of all responsibility.

Haley explained it was very distressing when the names of Carpenter's clients were briefly posted on the Internet.

Literally overnight, anonymity was lost, family members were outed and similar such situations befell those who sought support and were assured confidentiality by Carpenter and MUFON.

Haley remains uncertain exactly who was responsible for originally posting the client names on the internet.

Haley said most of the 140 probably never knew Carpenter sold their files to Bigelow.

About a dozen of them were aware of it and convinced Haley to join them in the lawsuit that turned out to go nowhere, she explained with frustration.

Would she rather not discuss the Carpenter Affair?

I don't mind talking about it, it's just that the statute of limitations expired, she said.

We had a clear cut case, she continued, the first attorneys said, there are no doubts.

Haley explained the attorneys initially met with the plaintiffs, assuring them testimony and evidence, which they had, was all they needed.

However, the first group of attorneys later turned over the case to a second group, and lines of communication declined to a non-functional mess.

Haley felt certain the lawsuit fell through the cracks because of threats.

In a bit softer and more despondent voice, Haley concluded that there's not anything that can be done about it, that entire group just got away with it.

Haley long since stopped fearing public criticism.

Such criticism is inevitable when revising opinions destined to be as unpopular as in the case of suggesting there are no aliens in alien abduction.

Rather than buckle to peer pressure, Haley appeared willing to draw on her experience as a relatively public figure, and her resulting thick skin, to set examples of honesty and realism by publicly acknowledging perspectives are simply bound to change as more information becomes available.

Haley considered sharing her story to be matters of compassion and responsibility.

It disturbs me greatly that there are people who are still being victimized by that system, Leah commented.

Perhaps it is ultimately Haley's ability to successfully navigate the no nonsense world of accounting that enabled her to painstakingly reevaluate everything she thought she knew about alien abduction and her experiences.

Maybe it was a genuine desire to seek truth.

I really cannot say for sure, but Haley's message is certainly clear enough: A check and balance of facts versus belief systems reveals alien abduction dogma does not properly add up, particularly in her specific case.

Haley said she periodically distanced herself from ufology and her past but kept getting drawn back in.

She explained she was most recently drawn back in by me and what she found to be my interest in black budget operations and her case.

I thanked her for her willingness to interact with me, then asked what was most important to her to ultimately accomplish.

Without hesitation, Leah Haley leaned back in her chair, looked skyward and replied with animated emphasis, I want mind control and other invasive experiments on unwitting U.S. citizens to be stopped.

And I want the mind control perpetrators brought to justice!.
