I'm not sure why you have an impression that FOIA efforts
weren't invoked the day after the incident? They can take months
to resolve and Dr. Haines is unlikely to give any kind of
information out until his Final Report is available. I would
guess that won't be until the latter part of this year. It took
almost a year and a half to finally develop the full report of
the incident at Andrews AFB several years ago, and that case had
also become mired in Internet discussion from multiple
researchers who were all acting on their own.

Around dusk and dawn we have lights hanging in the sky all
around Washington, with numerous transport helicopters joined by
radio traffic choppers and the landing lights as planes track
down the Potomac River toward Reagan National, or across the sky
toward Dullas International. Often these appear to be just
hanging in the air, and they're so numerous one doesn't pay much
attention any more. Given that most of the Downtown area is a
No Fly Zone, I'm amazed at the traffic. But unless one acts in
a bizarre manner, there's no reason to suspect something alien -
IMO.
