I just couldn't resist...

Curious that you refer to the FBI doc as the Scully Hoax,
Scully, Newton and or GeBauer aren't mentioned.

Although I agree that this particular doc isn't classified, most
(pertaining to Flying Saucers and in particular Aztec) back then
were; in the very least they were classified, Restricted, and or

This doc is in small part redacted and was obtained through a
FOIA request.

The doc in question states, an investigator for the Air Forces
stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in
New Mexico.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Wyandotte Echo article doesn't
mention an investigator for the Air Forces does it? Moreover the
article talks about 2 flying saucers, and the FBI doc refers to

Your inference re the radar in regards to the propulsion systems
of UFOs would seem to indicate that you are privy to their
operation as to rule out the effect of high power radar beams on
said craft. I certainly would like to here how you arrived at
these conclusions.

Additionally, although the article mentioned crashing through
the gate of a radar installation (the witness), does it in fact
state that high power radar beams caused it to crash?

There are AFOSI docs marked Priority X classified, Confidential,
dated Jan 13th quoting the newspaper article... that's two
months before the FBI doc, whats' your point?

Memos from the FBI, AFOSI, and or the CIC aren't official
looking, they are in fact official given there origin.

The OSI docs that I have refer to the article, date and
newspaper of origin, and do make comment on the piece, as well
as the further actions that will proceed.

It would seem that the Air Force chose to classify their
information on Koehler, whereas the FBI didn't (at least in
part) as you point out.

It is essential to bring to light, after the fact, that there
were indeed high powered radar stations in the Four Corners
area, as borne out by Scott Ramsey's research.
