I think you missed the parts where I explained that it is easy
to compile a list of high-publicity UFO cases for publicity and
political purposes but it is very difficult scouring through
100,000+ pages of AF documents on UFO's to select the best
scientific UFO cases for the scientific community. It hasn't
been done yet even though the AF files have been available for
over 30 years since their public release at the National

And it is more than just reading the documents. It requires
careful study and cross-checking against our data sources (some
AF cases were reported in the media or were investigated by
civilian UFO investigators). Cases need scientific analysis
looking for problems or corroborative evidence such as
indeependent witnesses or instrument data that were missed by
the AF, triangulations to help determine trajectories and object
dimensions, physics analysis of flight dynamics, etc.

The UFO research community has no real idea what is in the AF
files, as I said before. I've posted examples before, many
times, and am tired of repeating myself.

As I said I am working to do this case selection. My case
catalogs of 1,500 Unknowns are posted on various websites,
NICAP, CUFOS, NIDS, etc. This is the data pool from which to
later _select_ best cases to present to the scientific
community. The whole list of 1,500 (now 1,600+) is not what is
going to be presented.
