Controversy: The FBI-Hottel Memo

By April 2, 2013

Follow me on:

Probably the most discussed UFO topic lately has been about an FBI memo, dated March 22, 1950. The memo was written by agent Guy Hottel, who was at the time the head of the FBI in Washington, D.C.

According to numerous articles on the Net, the document recounts "a story told to one of our agents by a third party who said an Air Force investigator had reported that three 'flying saucers' were recovered in New Mexico," the agency said.

"They [the saucers] 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 three 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."

See all of the details and the document at FBI-Hottel Memo, and see what you think.

Dear Billy,

If the extensive witness testimony on Roswell (and etc) were put to the test in a normal manner by FBI prosecution lawyers in a court, they would win their case – hands down. The Hottel memo fits into Stanton Friedman’s extensively researched information rather nicely and is very early (1950). Debunkers might then be equivalent to lawyers working for the rackets.
