Regarding the Newhouse film which has been the subject of
intense discussion here since a potential corroborating witness
posted his comments a week ago: for those who are not up on
their history, this film had a major impact on the intelligence
agencies because of the source of the film (Navy photographer)
and the analyses done by the Air Force and Navy (NPIC).

The real impact of this film is not to be found in the AF or CIA
records. It is in the FBI "flying disc filke"... the real X

Therein we find a document dated Oct 27, 1952 (over 3 months
after the film was taken) which says, among other things,that
the FBI was informed as follows:

"....another recent extremely creditable (sic) sighting (has)
been reported to Air Intelligence. A Navy photographer... saw
objects in the sky which appeared to be flying saucers. He took
approximately 35 feet of motion picture film of these objects.
He voluntarily submitted the film to Air Intelligence who had it
studied at (ATIC). Experts at (ATIC) have advised that, after
careful study, there were as many as twelv e to sixteen flying
objects recorded on the film; that the possibility of weather
balloons, clouds or other explainable phenomena has been
completely ruled out; that they are at a coplete loss as to how
to explain this most recent creditable (sic) sighting. (ATIC)
experts pointed out that they could not be optical illusions
inasmuch as optical illumsions could not be recorded on film.

(ATIC) still feels that that the so called flying saucers are
either optical illumsions or atmospherical phenomena... however,
some military officials are seriously considering the
possibility of interplanetary craft."

Further information is available at the FBI web site or in my
book The UFO-FBI Connection which can be purchased from Amazon
for a few bucks... or less.

Note, by the way, the reference to 35 ft of film. I guess it was
the Incredible Shrinking Film.
