Just looked at this.
.... You will note that UFOs are not a part of the above job description.”
It is obvious to me that the Board’s desire to maintain the BAASS relationship has completely sidetracked MUFON from its true allegiances and mission....
...When MUFON first entered this relationship with BAASS, Mr. Bigelow repeatedly stated that they did not want this relationship to be construed as “managing”MUFON but that is exactly what it has become. I am appalled at how the Board has lost sight of who MUFON answers to as a non-profit organization. It is not BAASS, it is not even its members, it is the public that MUFON owes its existence.
BAASS illegally modified their own contract in June 2009, and when I pointed this out to the Board, the Board’s decision was to maintain the relationship with no legally binding contract in place. Since that day, BAASS has dictated its terms to MUFON and you have caved in to their every demand. Despite the fact that Mr. Bigelow agreed that all left over monies belonged to MUFON, the Board decided that it had to be spent as BAASS wanted it to be spent. When I submitted a PR plan for spending the money, BAASS took the strategy of not sending any monthly checks so that all BAASS related expenses over the November 2009 –January 2010 period would deplete the funds left in the BAASS checking account. I predicted this would happen and it has and now MUFON is left with no money in the bank. Is it not obvious to you that BAASS simply does not want MUFON to have either increased infrastructure or long term viability?...
....Under Mr. Bigelow’s direction, the company modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that Mr. Elizondo and program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena....
...Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes....

Were the journalists reporting on this ever shown anything to confirm this?
In fact, not only did Kean help write the article, she was the one who pitched the story to the Times in the first place. At best, shouldn't she merely have been interviewed for the story? Why was she permitted to be a part of the writing and vetting process?
Was information lifted from MUFON's database?
Perhaps this was all an attempt to find out if MUFON received or was holding any case files that might be deemed matters of interest to the "sponsors" of this project?
