Chapter: Cruisin' with the Spooks, page 161, by Kathy Kasten

"Gene Poteat's


Wednesday afternoon lecture, "The Science and Technical Wizardry
of Intelligence: America's Crown Jewels of Espionage," had come
and gone with minimal disclosure by Poteat on the CIA's part in
covert testing. Poteat (president of the Association of Former
Intelligence Officers and ex-CIA agent who had worked in the
Science and Technology Directorate, as a scientific intelligence
officer) was the manager for the development and operation of
special reconnaissance systems for the U-2, SR-71, and various
other space and naval reconnaissance vehicles. He developed and
implemented new intelligence methods to detect low observable
(stealth) aircraft by foreign air defense radars.

It was a remarkable lecture because Poteat stated he was able
to electronically create a "phantom blip" on radar. By turning a
few dials, he could make the phantom radar blip do extraordinary
things - go very fast, slow to a stop, move up or down, or
disappear, simply by manipulating the dials. One story involved
a military airbase that sent a jet fighter out to intercept "the
blip." The pilot had the blip on his on-board screen, but had no
visual, even though he should have been on top of the "craft."
Even though he did not have a visual, he claimed he had the
target in sight and fired a missile claiming to have "taken it
out." (I later read in Body of Secrets, by James Bramford, that
the jet was Cuban and involved ferret craft flights.) This
information suggests that some of the so-called radar evidence
for "UFOs" will need to be discounted, as they can be explained
away by the CIA's experimental technology.

Lunch With A Grumman Engineer (page 161 - 162)

During lunch in the Regal Dining Room with a man and his wife,
whose company I enjoyed (they are not public figures and these
were private conversations), this man volunteered that he had
been an engineer for Grumman's experimental craft operations on
Long Island. He stated that the EA6B had the capability of
"disappearing" from radar after a certain switch was turned on.
He was the contact person for the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS)
in Long Island because of a sighting he had had many years years
earlier, and because he wanted to bring a more scientific
process to the investigation of UFOs. "


I found cruising and vacationing with spooks, as an American
taxpayer, truly enlightening and educational. BTW, I found most
people who serve their country as intelligence personnel to be
very patriotic, highly intelligent with a sense of humor. KK
