New Project Bluebook
Cosmic Conspiracies were recently surfing the internet looking for new articles for this site when we came across some very interesting documents that were posted on the FBI Website (www.fbi.gov). We were all led to believe that Project Bluebook fronted by Dr. J. Allen Hynek was terminated on 17th December, 1969. However, as these documents reveal, it appears that it was re-opened in 1989.
“BLANK…who is not identifiable in Bufiles, writes to the Director referencing what appears to be a brief phone conversation he had with the Director while the Director was visiting his father in Fort Smith. He says he wants to discuss UFOs and the role of U.S. Governments participation in particular, and he indicates the Director stated he was interested and suggested he write to him…BLANK…
He asks the Director
if he would make inquiries at the highest levels of Government about what they
really know about UFOs, whether or not there are alien bodies located anywhere,
what happened to the crashed “flying saucers,” where are the photos taken by
Air Force personnel through on-board gun cameras and similar questioning.
Above response reviewed by SSA…BLANK…Violent Crimes Unit, CID. Substance of paragraphs 2 and 3 response previously provided to other inquiries on the investigation of UFOs.”
We can be sure Mr. X is from Arkansas, as this is the location of Fort Smith. Also, the Director’s response is copied to “1 - Little Rock - Enclosure”: Little Rock being the state capital of Arkansas. Furthermore, Mr X says of the Director’s visit; “I hope you had a nice visit with your Dad, and come back for a visit again, soon”, implying Mr X’s close proximity to Fort Smith. The fact that Mr X was able to contact the Director whilst the latter was visiting his Dad implies privileged access, presumably through high social or political standing. Alternatively, Mr X was a good friend of the Director’s Dad, but this is not alluded to in the correspondence.
During the phone conversation, the Director allegedly expresses an interest in pursuing the matter on Mr. X’s behalf, leading to the ensuing correspondence. However, the Director’s written reply contains an official denial of FBI involvement in the studies of UFOs (a statement that has been shown to be false by researchers (2,3), and discloses the official stance of the US Government and its agencies. This exchange of correspondence was then reviewed by several bodies, including, of all things, the Violent Crimes Unit. The emphasis of this review appears to be on the Director’s response, noting that it falls in line with responses to previous, similar inquiries.
He then challenges the Director to ignore the official Government line regarding the investigation of UFOs, and dig deeper to expose the cover-up in the corridors of power, perhaps even asking then-President Bush himself. The response he receives from the Director contains the official denials that he discusses in his initial letter, and his second letter cordially spells out his disappointment with this rehashed information. He re-iterates his belief that the reports of the ‘real, hard “unknowns”’ were unavailable for scrutiny by the official Project Blue Book, instead remaining securely in the hands of the intelligence-gathering agencies. We encourage readers to read these documents for themselves to verify our version of the correspondence.
Office of the
506 North 2nd Street
Fort Smith, AR 72901
Inspired, and name-approved, by the United States Air Force.
TO WHOM IT MAY
The enclosed News-media release is to announce a new association of an old project, and which has been officially name-approved by the United States Air Force. The release gives certain basic information, but should you desire additional information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with this office. Naturally, we are anxious to get the information to as many as possible, and as soon as possible, because some of those persons actively involved in UFO signting reports, or who made reports themselves, are reaching advanced ages - and it is our wish to get in touch with them as soon as we can.
For your further
information, the new Project Blue Book, and those associated with it, are sworn
to uphold any secret, or sensitive, information, which comes to our attention
in the search for the UFO information, and to with-hold any information which
could be considered to be detrimental to the security of our country. Therefore,
any source may feel free to offer information to this
office, and know that the information will be confidential, and the reporter - anonymous. Such information would be utilized only to the extent of helping to solve a sighting report.
The new Project
Blue Book is not an Air Force-funded agency, but is, by design, a civilian agency
- of former military personnel. Please feel free to contact the Director, at
the above address, or phone, for interviews or additional information
PROJECT BLUE BOOK
PROJECT BLUE BOOK,
The United States Air Force Investigative Arm for Unidentified Flying Objects
(UFO's), has been reorganized as a civilian research and investigative association,
comprised of (but not limited to), present and former, Air Force and other U.S.
agency personnel. The New Project Blue Book, officially name-approved by the United States Air Force, will study future UFO sighting reports, but devote further in-depth studies of the older, classic, sighting reports from the Mid-1940's through the 1960's. The original Project Blue Book closed its doors in 1969, but many of the investigators of the earlier reports found that the most important cases were then, and still are to this date, listed as "Unidentified." While
some possible answers were made on many reports at the time, most "answers" did not fit the actual reported sightings, and were later proven not to be the objects reported by reputable persons, including those persons who were in high-level government positions when they made the reports. The "Answers" did not fit the reports.
The New Project
Blue Book will be directed by industrialist Bill Pitts, a veteran investigator
for all civilian UFO organizations and various government agencies. A
high-level research team will re-evaluate the older reports and endeavor to
determine whether the objects reported have been solid metallic-like structure
and could be extra-terrestrial. An hypothesis long considered as the predominate
answer. In a statement released to the media, Pitts said: "We will be
seeking first-hand information, and materials, from individuals personally involved
in the earlier saucer-era sighting reports, and will greatly appreciate receiving
from any such person, or members of the immediate family, any copies of
government-agency correspondence, sighting reports, photo's and movies, (ESPECIALLY
ON PLANE-GUN CAMERAS, IF AVAILABLE)."
Also, FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE, OR PROOF, OF ANY ALLEGED UFO "CRASH RETRIEVAL" SITUATION WOULD BE APPRECIATED. Any such information that is received will be handled in strict confidentiality, and persons sending such materials will remain anonymous, and all materials will be returned in their entirety. Any person who may have been under "GAG-Restrictions" of the past, should come forward immediately, while they are still able to do so to assist us in this investigative endeavor of the world-wide phenomenon, Pitts said.
Headquarters for the new Project Blue Book, will be at Pitts office, 506 North 2nd Street, Fort Smith, Arkansas 72901. It is this address, which is centrally located in the United States, to which all materials should be sent.
