Hello Brian, Brad and List,

Thank you gentlemen for the enlightenment.

So there are unfortunately no new CIA documents.

Still, I got to the CIA website and checked their FOIA library on UFOs
with new eyes and found this pearl:

UFO Briefing For Dr. Edward Condon, 5 MAY 1967

I discovered in Edward Condon an honest man who, in the end, had to
bend to ! his employers. It must have been very difficult for him.

What he must have gone through!

On May 5 1967, Dr. Condon and his group conferred on the Zanesville
(Ohio) UFO pictures:

"... Dr. Condon and his colleagues <snip> were most
enthusiastic. They were impressed with the scope and the
analysis [blanked out] had conducted which included ground
survey techniques and densitometric traces. Dr. Condon stated he
had for the first time a scientific analysis of a UFO that would
stand up to investigation...


3. There was discussion held concerning methods of interesting the
American public in participating in UFO photography. No specific
conclusions we drawn, but it was suggested to review all photography
NICAP holds, and conduct photogrammetric analyses on any that have
appropriate and necessary information available. This would put Dr.
Condon in a position to say that he had received and analyzed all ! the
photography in NICAP files, and was now depending on the Ameri can
public to furnish his new photography. Also discussed was the
possibility of making available to police officers, on military posts,
airline pilots, and such people, polaroid cameras for instant use. No
conclusions we arrived at, but some interesting thoughts we tabled. It
was, however, felt by all that more publicity was needed.

4. [Blanked out] report on his analysis of the Zanesville photography
will be forwarded to [blanked out] in the near future for distribution
to Dr. Hatchford and Dr. Condon."

This is probably old knowledge for the seasoned ufologists on
the List (and old suppression for the seasoned debunkers).

This was some revelation to me.

The magnitude of the implications leaves me speechless. Most of
the text could have been capitalized.
