I wish the CIA had followed the lead of other agencies and used
the .pdf format for their documents, but they chose to use CGI
scripting to spoon feed the data in graphic format.

I submitted an FOIA request for all UFO related material that
they have posted to the web site and obtained more than 900
pages of documents.  I'm working with FUFOR to organize those
documents so they can be distributed on CD-ROM, but that work is
just beginning and I have no target date for a release.

In the meantime, I would keep trying their site.  I got the same
errors when I first tried to access the information and the next
day it worked fine.  I believe the problem relates to their
server and is an intermittant problem.
