According to the Eisenhower Library, Colonel Corso was NEVER a
member of the National Security Council and did NOT attend any
of its meetings. He was connected with a subgroup. In addition
according to the Roster of the R and D unit under General
Trudeau, there only 2 members in the foreign technology Div. Lt.
Colonel Corso was the junior officer. He claimed to have been
head of the group. In other words, there seems to have been some
very serious misrep- resentation. According to Peter Gersten,
Corso and his son, when asked if the statement about his being
an NSC member whould be deleted from the affidavit, both said
no.
