RE: [coldwarcomms] question re: sigint at Area 51 and NSA files
My understanding - and you're probably ahead of me on this - is that
government UFO investigations (e.g. the Air Force's "Project Bluebook") were
never seriously concerned with the possibility of extraterrestrial threats,
but rather were intended to collect the public's sightings of secret US
and/or Soviet aircraft. I've just read bits and pieces about it, but you
might want to research that theme as a possible tie-in between the "kooky"
UFO stuff and serious Cold War issues.
And speaking of the kooky side, a good introduction can be had in Richard
Sauder's "Underground Bases and Tunnels".

Dear Coldwar Comm-ers
I know this sounds crazy but I am gathering info for a book I plan to write
in a couple of years about the Continuity of Gov't Project. One chapter is
going to be about ordinary American's perceptions, speculations,
reconstructions of what goes on in these secure bunkers.
There will be a chapter exploring the whole UFO community -- including a
discussion of the activities of the once-reputable Daniel Sheehan (who long
ago represented the family of Karen Silkwood.) Apparently he is now an
attorney for the "Disclosure Project" which alleges a gov't coverup, esp at
NSA, about gov't eenergy systems based on alien technology. The idea is that
the gov't doesn't want to release the information since it would destroy our
petroleum based economy. The alien technology is apparently something like
the a frictionless perpetual motion engines..
I have the complete set of records regarding the CIA's ufo disinformation
campaign regarding the weather balloon crash at Roswell. But does anyone on
this list have further information about NSA or Sandia Labs?
I know there is a connection between the UFO sightings and the SR-17. But
even in James Bamford's books there is very little.
