James Clarkson leaves MUFON


former cop as UFO investigator

Until just a few days ago, James Clarkson had been Washington State Director for MUFON. He left in part, because of recent announcements concerning an “inner circle” of donors and their influence over the organization.

I met James and his wife in Arkansas last April when we were both speaking at the annual Ozark Mountain UFO Conference. He is enormously likeable and my impression was that he is exactly what MUFON should be. He came across as dedicated, hard working and open minded.

Here is the essay on his blog where he describes his reasons for leaving that organization.

With Regret – Why I Must Leave MUFON Completely

I am hoping that this letter may be a catalyst for real change in MUFON’s direction if it is not already too late. The influence of the money-worshipping corporate mentality is already damaging our country like cancer; what is happening to MUFON doesn’t seem much different.

After you read that, you can follow it up with another depressing essay from James. This one describes another longtime researcher leaving MUFON. James wrote:

The punch that knocked me out of my chair and on to the floor was when I opened my e-mail. I received an announcement from Robert Powell, MUFON Director of Scientific Research – He resigned and is leaving MUFON right before this year’s MUFON Symposium began.

Seems Robert Powell didn’t agree with the circus that surrounds the present symposium in Las Vegas. Like the essay linked above, this one is also worth reading.
