Great addendum to the story, Bruce.

Also here are comments from Robert Friend himself, ex-head of
Blue Book, to Mark Rodegheir of CUFOS. His comments were
published in Rodegheir's article "The CIA's UFO History" for IUR
edition in fall, 1997.

Friend comments are included in the section titled Spy Planes
And UFOs.

This is small quote:

"I (Mark Rodeghier) read to him (Robert Friend) the discussion
by Haines... and then asked for his comment. Almost the first
words he said were that it is "absolutely not true" that he or
his Blue Book team were covering up spy flights as alleged by
Haines. He found the whole idea laughable, and he knew Blue Book
did not receive more reports from pilots and air traffic
controllers after the U-2 began flying."
