I must once again repeat USAF General Carroll Bolender's October 1969 statement (It resulted in the closure of Project Blue Book): "Reports of UFOs which could affect National Security are made in accordance with JANAP 146 or Air Force Manual 55-11 and are not part of the Blue Book System" . Blue Book was not on the distribution list for those reports. I confirmed this with General Bolender by phone years later. Stan Friedman Listen to 'Strange Days...
