FBI documents presented in 'The UFO-FBI Connection' which I
published 2 years ago show that La Paz suggested to the FBI that
the fireballs were either a secret project of the Air Force or
else missiles launched from the Soviet Union.

These supposed missiles were flying over the North Pole and
traveling southward toward military areas of high significance
("vital installations").

La Paz told the FBi that, in his opinion (1949), the missiles
were being targeted toward Los Alamos, Sandia Base and so on and
once the Russians had the correct range they would replace the
"green" warhead with a nuclear warhead.

It appears that Hoover fed this information to radioman Walter
Winchell, who then publicized this over the airwaves. The Air
Force immediately pooh-poohed the idea.

Bottom line: no one doubted that they were real; La Paz argued
they were not normal meteors (he was an expert on meteors) and
the result is that no one knows exactly what they were.

However, in a list of sightings in 1949 and 1950 there is what
La Paz called the "disc variation."

Hmmmmmm... wonder what that could be?
