He published a 2007 piece by Gus Russo documenting how CIA and DIA men Ron Pandolfi, Paul Murad and Kit Green regularly manipulated and interacted with the UFO community, both live and online.
I too have an alien wife with a child capable of opening portals to other worlds and dimensions...You can imagine my surprise when I discovered this was less common than I had previously thought!!

There doesn't need to be a paper trail connecting Diane Griffin to ufology though Rob.
If I had a piece of UFO footage and I had a friend that worked for, ohh I dunno, the police; whose job it was to analyse police helicopter footage and I asked them for help with my UFO video, it would because of their skills in that specific area. They wouldn't have to be an active participant in the UFO arena or that there would be paperwork to that effect.

Just thinking out loud...
I believe that much (not all) of what has been happening within Ufology is a spook war, one that can probably be attributed to a handful of people, possibly birds and spooks. One such war that has cast a huge influence is an old bitter rivalry between two old CIA guys, one looking for "answers" and one tasked with protecting secrets and I think is relevant to this thread and what we have been discussing so far.
"Kit and Ron" - sounds like it should be a novel or a terrible Rom-com - Gwyneth Paltrow would probably be in it!!
I also see these two in the boots of William Holden and Robert Ryan in "The Wild Bunch"(1969) - a rivalry between two out-of-date sweats during the final death throes of the Old West, or in this case the death of old Ufology as the Young Guns take over. Like the later 'Buffalo Bill And The Indians' attractions and side-shows, the YGs will occasionally revive some old classics for the new generations.

So you UK guys see all the American movies. That's how BOJO got so crazy!
The wild bunch was one violent movie.
BTW...which one of these CIA guys whose wife is all spooked up...Went to Mars or has a portal or some kind of weirdness?
Assuming you're being serious, pick a Greer thread. Any Greer thread.
As mentioned before, why didn't Dolan ask Green about the PURPOSE of the 2001 memo? Because it pops the very bubble of 'juiciness' for his audience that was originally meant to hoodwink Bigelow?
7. the body looked really pretty faked... but I intend to look at the film again on the 27th of January to make a better decision.
I'm not as generally critical of Dolan as others, but he's teetering on the brink of falling into the same pit as Moulton Howe, Cameron and Greer - all of whom, to be fair, started out with the best of intentions and some impressive work.
Again, are you being serious here? In fact, I'm not sure if your entire post has its tongue in its cheek - which would make me a short-sighted, short-humoured fool.
The FOIA request was submitted due to a blog post by Keith Basterfield in which he explored the possibility Flickinger acted as a mentor to Dr. Kit Green on information related to UFOs. The controversial Dr. Green is a long term ufology staple with a CV that includes the Central Intelligence Agency and Robert Bigelow's National Institute for Discovery Science. Asked for comment on Basterfield's blog post and Flickinger serving as a mentor, Green responded in a Sep. 16 email:
I am very willing to tell you, and for you to pass on to Keith that in my judgement he is the finest Forensic technically sophisticated HUMINT researcher & analyst I have ever seen in this field. At or even slightly over 95% of his conclusions about me have been correct. I am unable legally or ethically to confirm any correct or occasionally, rarely incorrect inclusions.
I respectfully will not confirm or deny any sources to whom I have pledged privacy.
Donald Flickinger was an Air Force general and a surgeon. According to a CIA report, he acted as the medical adviser for Project AQUATONE for over a decade.
Follow-up FOIA requests were submitted pertaining to Cusson, Lovelace, and possible further investigations.
Researchers who explore the ways the topic of UFOs has been exploited by espionage and counterespionage operations may not have all the details right, but they don't have them all wrong, either.
