The memo is referred to as the Hottel memo and was penned by Guy Hottel in 1950 and sent to J. Edgar Hoover. It was first released under a Freedom of Information Act request in 1970.
The memo contains descriptions of saucer shapped craft with raised middle portions and clothing of a fine metallic mesh, (Day the Earth Stood Still, hmmm??).
The FBI says the memo has been viewed over one million times since 1970, and they released a statement on Monday March 25th saying, that the Hottel memo “does not prove the existence of UFO’s; it is simply a second- or third-hand claim that we never investigated.”
Well, all I have to say is, “Gort, Klaatu barada nikto”
