Sorry James, the facts are different.

As might be expected from PJK's 30 years of misrepresentation
this is a very inaccurate description of what I have said and
how I say it. In my longer college presentations I told the
story of the CAUS actions against the CIA and NSA and show every
page of the 21 page affidavit starting with very lightly
censored to heavily censored,  leading to laughter. Far more
dramatic than just showing a few blacked out pages. Then I tell
of the few very heavily censored CIA UFO documents it took me 5
years to get, (3 out of 14) which the CIA somehow didn't find
and the NSA did. One page has 8 readable words.

Just last week I received 3 CIA documents not previously
released. But the 3 oldies have not had one word added.

Once the new version of the affidavit became available, I noted
it, often showing it and note that the NSA supposedly "released"
all 156 UFO documents.. a line or 2 of each, now using whiteout
instead of black ink. I even added a footnote to my paper "UFOs:
Earth's Cosmic Watergate"1997. The new version is only 20%
blacked out. The 156 documents have been released, about 2 lines
per page - using whiteout not blackout."

Notice how PJK claims to be psychic and know what is on the 90+%
of the document pages whited out. In case people haven't noted
it,TV and debates, almost never give time for a detailed
explanation of anything... and Klass, when unchallenged, is
almost always full of baloney.
