My comment is: What FOIA? Where is the FOIA cover letter?

This document originates again with Tim Cooper! I suggest you
go back and read again Tim Good's comments on Tim Cooper's
letters. See:


Here is a simple challenge: Supply the rest of the finding
information for this document:

  Records Group:  330,  Entry:
  Box Number:

All that information should have been provided on the FOIA!
Instead what do we get?

>From this message we are told:


"This is a Nov. 7, 1985 FOIA release related to Paperclip files
that most likely Linda Hunt (author of Secret Agenda, 1991) was
successful in declassifying. She was the head of CNN's
investigative journalism unit and successfully sued for the
release of some 82 boxes now within RG 330 at the National

"Tim Cooper later requested, we believe, items from CIA about
PAPERCLIP which resulted in the attached release. There are many
other papers in this release with the same date, Nov, 7, 1985,
and on the same topic."

"Specifically, the document refers to project 63, which Linda
Hunt wrote extensively on in her book. In short, it was an
operation to bring German, Nazi, and unique scientist over to
the US from 1945-1990 for either cost-effectiveness or national
security reasons."

This is the best we can do after two years of extensive
research? In fact the investigators are not even sure if it
indeed comes from a FOIA!  "Tim Cooper later, we believe...."
Why is the investigators don't know?  Before placing yet another
MJ-12 document before us without established origin, perhaps a
little checking would be in order?  Yet again, another MJ-12
document without established provenance!
