1 -- There's nothing special about the document, except for (a) it's source is the FBI, so it's authenticity is very, very likely and (b) the
Director of the FBI states that the Army recovered a disk in "La". If you read this
This accords well with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s hand-written notes that appear at the foot of a 10 July 1947 FBI document pertaining to UFOs,
in which Hoover writes: “…we must insist upon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the La [Los Alamos?] case the Army grabbed it and
would not let us have it for cursory examination.”
which doesn't really place the memo in context until you consider that Hoover probably didn't mean Los Alamos. He probably meant
the Battle over Los Angeles.
In that light, the memo makes sense -- it suggests that the Army
shoot something down that night (like the "disc" in the picture) and didn't share with the FBI... and it appears to have irritated
2. Yes, other documents are legit, but I'm not suggesting that this document is the answer to all that much -- just that it suggests a possible
connection between the Los Angeles incident, the Army, and the FBI's knowledge of something happening with regard to a disk.
3. The Air Force was not separated out of the Army (it was the US Army Air Force --- USAAF) until late 1947/early 1948. Also, the L.A. incident is
alleged to have occured in 1942 -- pre Air Force as well.
I also find this document very interesting because it was originally wirrten on July 10, 1947. The press release stating that a disk had been
recovered in Roswell occured on July 8, 1947. Hoover's comments were dated July 15th. All just facts that I'm not sure how much to make of... but
they seems to bounce around together quite well.
My only caveat with respect to Roswell is that even if nothing was actually recovered there, the spectre of such an occurance may have caused the
typical, federal government knee-jerk reaction to start sending around memos on how to deal with such an occurance such as a crashed UFO.
