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.
