UFO CIA Papers
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
In autumn 2016 the CIA sent to its website (www.cia.gov/library/readingroom) a cache of electronic files previously released under the Freedom of Information Act but housed at the National Archives of America. Among a variety of subjects were "unidentified flying objects." Finally, a stockpile of reports and correspondence were available for serious UFO researchers to examine at home.
This book consists of selections from those secret files. Dan Wright spent 18 months selecting, editing and organising the 550 files that are relevant to UFO research and has produced a chronological collection of CIA documents spanning 1949 to 2000.
Each chapter focuses on a particular year. The summary of documents for each year is followed by a section called "While You Were Away from Your Desk," which provides historical and cultural context for the document summaries and examines other sightings and contacts that are not mentioned in the CIA files.
Among the fascinating tidbits are:
* A memo to J Edgar Hoover about flying saucer reports
* The 1949 conference at Los Alamos that includes Edward Teller, upper
atmosphere physicist, Dr. Joseph Kaplan and other renowned scientists
in which the participants debated whether recent incidents were natural
phenomena or UFO sightings
This is a must-have book for those fascinated by the history of UFO sightings and those interested in government secrets and cover-ups.
