Is the 1957 Antonio Villas Boas "abduction" still grist for discussion?
Bosco Nedelcovic was a Yugoslav émigré who worked at The U.S. Department of Defense [DoD] as an AID worker in South America.
He actually was a C.I.A. agent, as I found out from a few postings at UFO UpDates in 2005.
Bosco is the fellow who told me in phone interviews during the 1970s that the 1957 Antonio Villas Boas “event” near São Francisco de Sales [Brazil] was actually a DoD/CIA created experiment. [He didn’t refer to it as a military “psyop” however.)
Nick Redfern has the full tale in his book Contactees.
Here is the Villas Boas case as Wikipedia has it:
It seems that Bosco got into some kind of trouble involving children as part of his CIA endeavors.
(I was contacted by a former FBI agent/lawyer in 2005 about something to do with Bosco but I was in hospital at the time and didn’t get the calls or any further information about what the FBI/lawyer needed or wanted.)
Bosco came into my sphere, I believe, from newspaper articles telling readers of my funding of various enterprises, UFO research among them.
Bosco was looking for money to start a compound for “societal outsiders” I think; his construct was called “Basic Livelihood.”
(This may have been the “business” that got him into trouble with authorities.)
I have lots of communications from him, but here is a postal card telling me he was in California, showing me a possible place to start his “Livelihood” operation. (Why was he in California?)
Our attempt to find out if his Villas Boas story had merit is here:
And my “friend” Philip Coppens [deceased] dealt with the issue here:
The Villas Boas “abduction” remains questionable for many, as one can see from the colloquies at Mac Tonnies one-time blog (which you can find via a Google search).
UFOs may be a mystery, one clouded by interference, perhaps, of government agencies.
