This is the Scully hoax all over again. The FBI memo was _not_
"declassified." It was never classified in the first place. It
reported a rumor that had already been well publicized for
months, with this version appearing in the Wyandotte Echo
newspaper on Jan. 6, 1950.

The baloney about the US "radar interferes with the controlling
mechanism of the saucers" in the March 1950 FBI memo comes
straight out of the Wyandotte Echo story of January 1950 from
car dealer Rudy Fick who got it from "Coulter" - Scully friend
George Koehler, a radio station ad manager in Denver.

The Koehler story in Jan 1950 said "radar waves interfere with
their control systens." That's two months _before_ the FBI memo.

Air Force OSI documents copy and even type out this Jan 1950
newspaper clipping onto official-looking memos so the article is
readable, without commenting on any of the contents. Someone
looking at such a typed out story on an official-looking AFOSI
memo might mistakenly get the wrong impression that the AF was
endorsing the contents, when it was merely copying in readable
form a fantastic newsclipping. Then they pass their rumor to the
rumor-loving FBI.

We know that even people outside the government got to see these
AF documents. Washington columnist Drew Pearson reported in his
Nov. 25, 1950, column that he personally saw a "confidential Air
Force report" on the hoaxed George Koehler story of saucer
