Although I believe that this FBI memo is indeed relating to the hoax made by the conman....Let me be a Devil's Advocate for a second. Is there truly
any DIRECT evidence that the memo is related to this hoax, other than the stories being similar and being told at the right time period? Also it seems
that the Air Force knew from the get go that this story was a fraud, why would they pass on such an obvious fraud to Hottel, who then wrote a memo
that if not outright suggesting it was real, then at the very least does not even hint at the fact that it is a likely hoax? Something he would have
undoubtedly learned from the Air Force Investigator.

I agree with this. I understand the memo is a hoax, legally proven and proven by ufologist, years ago.
would the FBI have this posted on their website?
Dec 06, 2010 Guy Hottel Guy Hottel was a Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office. The information concerning Mr. Hottel
is in regard to a March 22, 1950, memo he sent to the Director concerning flying saucers.
All the other topics don't have a blurb under them. Not every person is a UFO researcher.
If Aliens don't visit us or Inter-dimensional Beings or humans from the future, or whatever, then why even have UFO's on the site. Where are the
Santa Clause topics? Or Easter Bunny memos on FBI.GOV?
But hoax-ufo memos are ok? Seems strange to me.
The Vault is our new electronic reading room, containing more than 2,000 documents that have been scanned from paper into digital copies so you can
read them in the comfort of your home or office. Included here are more than 25 new files that have been released to the public but never added to
this website; dozens of records previously posted on our site but removed as requests diminished; and files from our previous electronic reading room.
Please note: the content of the files in the Vault encompasses all time periods of Bureau history and do not always reflect the current views,
policies, and priorities of the FBI. New files will be added on a regular basis, so please check back often.
Going through the FOIA Exemptions, if the memo was real then it wouldn't be released, and I guess the blacked out portions of the memo are based off
So is this the FBI's response to the increase in UFO/Alien belief? Right? What is discussed all the time, "All these UFO tv shows and movies, they
are preparing us...." But the FBI did not post this as a hoax or $50,000 law suit, they actually wrote a blurb under the link about flying
Since not everyone is an educated Ufologist, most people are going to "overreact" at this news. This whole thing still seems rather strange to me.
I'm not sure what else can be done on this, but move on?
What is with page 52 on UFO part 13 of 16?
On page 112 there is information on the Socorro Sighting?
