UFO News Article:
“Washington Report by Fulton Lewis”,
22 February 1965 (Reading Eagle, Pennsylvania)

The article focuses partly on the November/December 1964/January 1965 Virginia UFO flap:,3332323

Quote from the article:
“Maj. Keyhoe has some impressive support. Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter (retired), a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, says: ‘The unknown objects are operating under intelligent control. It is imperative that we learn where they come from.’

An official of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Deputy Public Affairs Director Albert M. Chop, has ‘been convinced for a long time’ that the saucers are interplanetary.

The Air Force does not deny that certain UFOs may have
been operated by creatures from outer space. It says only that no
UFO ‘has ever given any indication of a threat to our national 
security.’ ”
