From: Isaac Koi <isaackoi.nul> Date: Wed, 6 Feb 2013 21:12:24 +0000 Archived: Thu, 07 Feb 2013 05:22:33 -0500 Subject: FBI Files - Searchable PDF Archive I've uploaded searchable versions of FBI documents relevant to ufology to a directory at the link below. By clicking on an option at the top right of that webpage, you can download all of these FBI files with a single click (which is considerably less time consuming than going to the individual links for each file on the FBI websites): https://www.box.com/s/cykarbqs0libthmw83me Due to the bandwidth problems that a couple of people encountered last time I previously posted (with the permission of the Canadian government) a popular collection of UFO documents on the Box.com file storage website, this time I’ve also uploaded the same FBI material to the "Skydrive" file storage website at the link below (which can, hopefully, also be downloaded easily by going to "Folder actions" on the top left of the screen and selecting "download folder"): http://sdrv.ms/TpBPYS The downloadable collection of PDF files at the links above is limited to documents from the FBI websites themselves (both the FBI’s current "Vault" website and the FBI’s previous FOIA website), but goes beyond the 16 files labelled "UFO" on the FBI website. This collection also includes the FBI files on NICAP (a UFO group), cattle mutilations, the MJ-12 documents, extrasensory perception, Carl Sagan, Nikola Tesla, Wilhelm Reich, Jack Parsons and Silas Newton. Some highlights from that collection are given in my lengthy post at the link below. Various issues requiring follow-up action and research are also indicated (particularly in Part G and Part H. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread924183/pg1 That lengthy post is split into the following sections: Part A: A brief introduction Part B: Files labelled "UFO" from current FBI website Part B1: Roswell and Hoover on access to "discs recovered" (1947) Part B2: The toilet seat upset (1947) Part B3: The Guy Hottel memo (1950) Part B4: Were UFOs a secret military project? Part B5: The Air Force and Men In Black Part B6: Air Force "greatly concerned" memo (1952) Part B7: Air Force at a "complete loss" memo (1952) Part B8: FBI forensic examination in scoutmaster case (1952) Part B9: Lonnie Zamora sighting at Socorro (1964) Part B10: "Alien" photo in FBI files (1967) Part B11: Other documents that caught my eye Part B12: FBI responses to queries about its involvement in UFO investigations Part C: Relevant files not labelled "UFO" from FBI current website Part C1: Majestic 12 Part C2: Bluebook Part C3: NICAP Part C4: Roswell Part C5: Guy Hottel Part C6: Silas Newton Part C7: Carl Sagan Part C8: Cattle mutilations Part C9: Extrasensory perception Part D: Recovered additional files that used to be on the FBI website Part D1: Jack Parsons Part D2: Wilhelm Reich Part D3: Nikola Tesla Part E: Unrecovered additional files that used to be on the FBI website Part E1: Philip Corso Part F: Files on other websites purporting to be FBI releases Part F1: Philip Corso Part F2: J Allen Hynek Part F3: Phil Klass Part F4: L Ron Hubbard / Church of Scientology Part G: Files not online purportedly released to some researchers Part G1: Files listed by Nick Redfern Part G2: Jan Aldrich’s list Part G3: Barry Greenwood’s list Part H: Conclusion Part I: References Part J: Postscript All the files that I cover in Part B, Part C and Part D are available in the collection of FBI files at the link at the start of this page. Those members fairly familiar with the FBI documents relating to UFOs which are already available online are urged to head straight to Part F, (particularly) Part G and Part H (the Conclusion) of that lengthy post in the hope that the issues arising from those Parts can be taken forward. The material in Part F and Part G (particularly the latter) should, at the very least, give some ideas for focused Freedom Of Information Act requests to the FBI, so that complete copies of the files mentioned in those categories can be added to the above collection of files. Frankly, I think that ufology could benefit considerably from making more underlying documentation easily available in a searchable format. Once downloaded, the entire directory of FBI files at the links above can be read or searched quickly and easily (together with, if you wish, archives of UFO discussion lists, various UFO magazines/journals, other official documents, UFO books, academic dissertations relating to UFOs etc) using a method I’ve previously outlined at: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread762746/pg1 Kind Regards, Isaac Listen to 'Strange Days...
