In 1976, when I requested the FBI to release any UFO information under the newly passed Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOIPA), I didn't expect to get anything. There had never been explicit evidence that the FBI was ever involved in UFO investigations. One person who should have known was Capt. Edward J. Ruppelt, the first director of Project Blue Book, which was the publicly known UFO investigation project of the Air Force from 1952 to 1969. He wrote a history of the first eight years of Air Force flying saucer investigations, The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects (Doubleday, New York, 1956). According to Ruppelt, the FBI "was never officially interested" in UFO sightings. Therefore I was surprised to learn that there were well over a thousand pages of UFO-related material in the FBI's "X-files." I found that the FBI file contains some early records not in the files of Project Blue Book, which the Air Force claimed was the complete, official Air Force collection of UFO sightings and documents. Of greater interest is the fact that it contains comments and opinions stated by Air Force officers who were involved in the early years; comments such as "some military officials are seriously considering the possibility of interplanetary ships"!
In 1966, a writer asked FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover for some information about UFOs. Hoover replied that "the investigation of unidentified flying objects is not, and never has been, a matter within the investigative jurisdiction of the FBI."
The information revealed in this book (for the first time anywhere) is nothing less than shocking.
In this amazing work of scholarship and research, Dr. Maccabee reveals the lies and deceit, the foolishness and the egos that have prevented you from having this simple truth. It shows that throughout the contradictions, lies and misrepresentations put forth by the government, they have known the truth: something or someone is out there. Now, you can follow this previously unpublished revelation of real government secrets.
