So, basically it's your standard messed up nonsense that abounds within ufology.
Sigh indeed. However, thanks to people like you at least there's some hope. Excellent work and thank you for taking the time to put all this info
together and share it with the rest of us.
I have one question though: considering this case was based on nothing but elaborate storytelling and hearsay, and that the subsequent investigation
had already been conducted by the Air Force two months prior, is it not a little odd that such a yarn still managed to find its way onto the desk of J
Edgar Hoover himself?
I mean - I have no doubt that this case was a hoax, and as such could be filed under the "ash can covers, toilet seats and whatnot” tag. It's also
my understanding (correct me if I'm wrong here) that the FBI wanted very little to do with UFO cases for this very reason. So why does this
make it all the way upstairs? Maybe it was already part of some Silas Newton fraud investigation? But the memo itself doesn't hint at that,
and would that be something that needs to be reported to the director anyway?
I'm just wondering if there's maybe still a baby somewhere in all this bathwater?
i.e. could it imply:
a) Someone was worried enough that although the story had all the earmarks of a "fish was big" kind of tale, it might have been rooted in some
b) This is evidence of Hoover's alleged suspicions that other compartments in the Military/Government were witholding information on UFOs, and that
he himself mandated any potential "leads" to be passed along his way on this front.
I'm just wildly speculating here of course, but something about this memo still leaves me with a feeling that it's less "nothing to see here, move
along" and more "things that make you go hmmm"...
