First off he had lived through the 1947 "saucer scare period" as he later dubbed it. He was referring to the massive wave of saucer sightings all across the nation starting in May and winding down in September.

Interesting note on this UFO-wave is that it started just 2 months after "Operation High Jump" ended.
This thread is a must read for that expedition.

CardDown, if a person actualy examines many of the official USAF conclusions about specific UFO cases then some of them do deserve ripping to shreds - there are some examples here but I suspect there are many others out there.

As for Major Keyhoe,there's an interesting letter of commendation below from Pentagon/USAF spokesperson Albert Chop in which he describes him as 'a responsible and accurate reporter' and 'a leading civilian authority' on the UFO subject -some of the government documents and scientific papers in his archived material is also worth a look if you're interested in that sort of thing.

Good letter!
