I admit that I didn't know about Stringfield's too, but more I read his stuff now, mostly in the old MUFON journals, more it looks to me like he was one of the myth-makers himself and maybe one of the mighty ones. What do you think?

That would be worth the claim of "Blockbuster UFO Discoveries" , but only if it truly had EVIDENCE to back up the claims besides just dates and names. Unless they have footage or other physical evidence those notes won't have much value and will be no different than what evidence we already have. IMO, it was premature of them to state a "Blockbuster UFO Discoveries" without thoroughly going through the documents and verifying sources or evidence.
IMO MUFON just did a disservice to its organization by using the same marketing ploy as all the other documentaries and programs on TV.
However, I'm glad to see more people seeing through the hype.edit on 8-8-2012 by interupt42 because: (no reason given)

“In those 60 volumes we have government interference, the FBI and CIA stopping the ufologists at any cost,” Ventre said. “He names Donald Rumbsfeld ...
He even has actor Jackie Gleason’s contact information in there. There is a lot of explosive information in there.

For instance, a curious part of that EXTEXT has misspelled that name. The last name should be spelled 'Rumsfeld', without the 'b'. Thus, is the article talking about the very same Donald Rumsfeld we all know, or, some other Donald Rumbsfeld with that troubling 'b' in the last name?

So... You seem to have assumed that everybody knows what the 2 supposedly major releases of information were, and why they were a let down. So, I cannot agree or disagree as you did not give enough Information... Nothing like a thread that requires work to be done in order to understand the context of it. Many of us are surfing the net from our phones and so it is not very convenient for us to do the research required to answer your question.
Not EVERY ATS member is sitting at home or in their moms basement on a computer they spend every dollar they have on upgrading that has like 8 monitors, and even if they were, not all of those people have the time to look up all this crap so they can know what the hell you are talking about.
And even if they did have the time, you have already stated that its a bunch of BS and a total underwhelming letdown... So, I ask you, sir! Where is the motivation??? Where, dammit!!!???
I do hereby declare that THIS THREAD is the ONLY underwhelming letdown I've had today! I could've had two, but, you LET me DOWN. Good day sir!

Well times are tough.
Do you think you're going to bring people in if you say "Well, we don't really have anything that great but we do have some documents with some names on them."

Hi everyone. I was a certified Field Investigator for MUFON. From my experience, we were pushed hard to recruit members first and investigate UFOs second. So in a sense, increasing funds to sustain their enterprise was a priority rather than investigating UFOs. Moreover, at the meetings, they were not true investigative meetings. Most meetings were quite boring and they spend a considerable amount of time still debating about Roswell.
