I have looked at the Klass FBI file and found it most
disappointing. I was expecting a lot more than this. Apart from
two items (the UFO article by Hynek in the FBI magazine and the
bit about the FBI using psychics in their crime detection) the
rest seems to be mainly internal memos re some unreadable
gibberish by a guy who was obviously trying to impersonate
Klass.  This is hardly worth trying to decipher.

Why, for example, is there nothing in the FBI files about
Klass's own admitted attempt to interest the FBI in the MJ-12
papers when they first surfaced in 1987?  It was Phil who sent
the said douments to the FBI with a covering letter asking them
to investigate a possible breach of security (the docs were all
stamped TOP SECRET - MAJIC).  Yet the FBI seem to have no record
of these, or have mislaid it or omitted it for some reason.

Similarly there is nothing about odd claims that Klass was a
government agent. Nor is there anything, apparently, from any
other ufologist enquiring (to the FBI) about Klass and his
connections in Washington. It is as if  the really potentially
interesting material on Klass has been omitted. Perhaps this all
comes under the 'unreleaseable'  category.

I found the Hynek stuff most illuminating but the rest a bit
dull and boring.
