List, All,

I thought I'd take a look at the Frank Kaufmann file and see
what I had in it. Besides his separation papers that he gave to
me showing he was a master sergeant and that he had some
intelligence training (which BTW were bogus) he provided a
document dated 25 Sep 47 that begins in part:

"In accordance with (which we would now write as IAW) directive
from the Directorate of Intelligence, Air Intelligence
Division... the following military/civilian personnel will
adhere to the duties and responsibilities as outlined in AIRD
Manual E723."

Frank's name tops the list, as do the names of other members of
"the nine" that Frank had identified.

This letter also said, "It is recommended that... be initiated
whenever possible to include:

"Official denial
Discredit/discourage witnesses..."

And was signed by Robert J. Thomas, Major, Air Corps.

He gave me a document dated 25 July 47 that said,

"In accordance with directive from headquarters Strategic Air
Command... the following military/military civilian personnel
are relieved from duty assignment on Project AIRD 723, as it
pertains to recovery 'Flying Disc...'

And Frank's name is at the top of the list.

I could go on but what is the point. Frank always said that he
had documentation to prove he was telling the truth and this was
some of it. By the time I got my hands on this, I had doubts
about the veracity of much of what Frank was telling me.

And yes, at that time, I believed him to be telling the truth
but he had asked me to hold onto the documents until he was
ready for them to be released. We now know that some of the
office symbols he used, of real military organizations, didn't
exist at the time the letters were written.

We run into one problem here. A witness shares information with
you to prove himself sincere but asks that it not be circulated.
I suppose I should have provided copies to a few selected fellow
researchers to let them have a crack at them but then Frank
asked me not to.

Anyway, this is just one more example of how Frank slipped
