Play It Again, Mr. Chairman

In his time, there was nobody like L. Mendel Rivers, Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, to put his critics in their place. Via Congressman James Hanley, he certainly set me straight in this July, 1965 letter, parroting the Air Force position on UFOs. There's nothing particularly striking about this letter except it demonstrates that, at least publicly, official UFO commentary hasn't changed in over 40 years. How sad. How outrageous.
