The FBI attempted to explain a UFO memo this week.
The memo from 1950 was addressed to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover from Guy Hottel, then head of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. field office.
Hottel wrote, “An investigator for the Air Force stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico. They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall, dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed fliers and test pilots.”
The file was released in April 2011.
But, now the FBI wants to make clear that the Hottel memo “does not prove the existence of UFOs.” The FBI said, “It is simply a second- or third-hand claim that we never investigated.”
