Brad wrote about some of his ideas about Ruppelt, the CIA and
USAF in his article "Ruppelt's Coverup" starting on page 40
of the "Proceedings of the Sign Historical Group UFO History
Workshop."

Here is my criticism of Ruppelt's selection process for the
Robertson Panel:

1. No close encounter sightings were presented to the panel
although there were such cases in the USAF or other government
files.

2. Most cases involving triangulated were not presented to the
panel including cases which were filmed by cineotheodolites.

3. Various cases involving physical effects were not submitted
to the panel.

4. Cases which contained enough information to calculate
approximate speed, size, altitude and distant were not submitted
to the panel. (specifically, the 1949 southern Oregon
aircraft/UFO encounter.)

Hynek identified one of the cases submitted to the panel as an
IFO prior to the panel meeting.

Except for JANP (probably a typos for Joint Army Navy Air
Publication) 101 on radar, technical data and discussion of
radar was not thoroughly addressed by the presenters or the
panel members.

One of the panel concerns was the possible clogging of
intelligence channels with UFO reports. In light of that, the
following actions are very strange:

1. The USAF issued a press release inviting UFO reports and
telling what information was requested.

2. The US Air Attache contacted the Royal Australian Air Force
and requested copies of RAAF UFO cases.

3. Commander Bernard Burach, Jr. met with Airline executives to
insure that CIRVIS reports and news media reports specifically
stated that UFOs reports were wanted and that in Feb 1954 5 to
10 were made a night.

Apparently the only place the Navy was consulted was concerning
the Tremonton and Great Falls movie analyses. However, in 1951,
they had according to press reports analyzed 2000 UFO reports
(more reports than existed in the USAF files at the time so some
kind of explanation would seem appropriate.)

Brad can tell you about his research. He contacted a number of
CIA and USAF intelligence officials who were involved in the UFO
investigations during this period.

One of the two dozen projects the Sign Historical Group has
proposed is an alternated history of the CIA involvement
with UFOs. It would be far d
