“Top-Secret 1949 Document”
by Jan L. Aldrich
The document is titled “REPORT BY THE DIRECTOR OF INTELLIGENCE, USAF to the JOINT INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE on UNIDENTIFIED AERIAL OBJECTS”:
Quote from the paper:
“CAUS had been looking for this document for more than 20 years. It was found in the National Archives II in College Park, Maryland, in the USAF Air Force Director of Intelligence files entitled A General File July 1945--December 1954: Records Relating to the Requirements for and the Collection and Dissemination of Intelligence" (Records Group 341, Entry 214A) during research for PROJECT 1947
in July 1997. The JIC
document had not been found previously because it had been classified top
secret and was not in the records checked to satisfy the previous FOIA requests.
This discovery demonstrates the usefulness of on site records inspection by
Jan L. Aldrich is the director of PROJECT 1947.
