Subject: Re: FOIA on SOM 1-01

As indicated in the posting from Bill Hamilton and the original
"Authentication II" on Joe Firmage's site, the owner and Top
Secret Control Number of SOM 1-01 has been identified.

Hamilton states the Special Operations Manual 1-01 indeed has a
Top Secret Control number.  The discussion in the Woods'
"Authentication II" does not indicate they found a TS Control
Number, however, they do indicate that the manual apparently is
stamped Kirkland Air Force Base, New Mexico. 

If there is a TS Control Number and a stamp indicating that the
document belonged to Kirkland AFB, NM, then you have an obvious
FOIA.  The obvious thing to do is FOIA Kirkland AFB using their
TS Control Number.

See references:

On the 28th of January 1999, Bill Hamilton, the post
that appears in the Skywatch Archives:


One of the objections raised was that the SOM1-01 manual had no
document control number which is standard for Top Secret material.
Dr. Wood contacted Don Berliner who had independently of Tim
Cooper received a filmed copy of this document in the mail and
had discovered that one frame had not been developed and printed.
This frame, upon examination, contained the missing document
control number.

In Authentication II, page 11, we find the information below:


Where is the document control?" The answer to the first concern
is that Bob Wood and Don Berliner found one frame that had not
been initially reproduced because of the poor quality of the
image -- and it turned out to be the required control page. See
page i. It shows that there were pages that were replaced by the
authority of MJ/01 and MJ/04 and the initials of the people who
were doing it are fuzzy but identifiable. Looking at page i, and
the facing page, it can be seen that this document came from
Kirtland Air Force base. It shows the authority as MJ/01 or
MJ/04. It lists the pages that were changed on the left, the
date that the pages were changed, and the date and time and
initials of the person who changed them, either an EWL or a JRT.
We have gone through lists of officers of that time period and
have identified all the EWLs and JRTs. We're homing in on him,
on them, or her. It is not clear that it needs to be an officer
-- could be a noncom or a civilian.
