The NEW PROJECT BLUE BOOK! News Update, 09/19/1988 by Bryon Smith ParaNet Tau The information to Follow was handed to me by the Director of The NEW Project Blue Book, Mr. William Pitts. Office of the Director: William Pitts 506 North 2nd Street Fort Smith, AR 72901 (501)-782-7077 Inspired, and name-approved, by the United States Air Force. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: The enclosed News-media release is to announce a new association of an old project, and which has been officially name-approved by the United States Air Force. The release gives certain basic information, but should you desire additional information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with this office. Naturally, we are anxious to get the information to as many as possible, and as soon as possible, because some of those persons actively involved in UFO signting reports, or who made reports themselves, are reaching advanced ages - and it is our wish to get in touch with them as soon as we can. For your further information, the new Project Blue Book, and those associated with it, are sworn to uphold any secret, or sensitive, information, which comes to our attention in the search for the UFO information, and to with-hold any information which could be considered to be detrimental to the security of our country. Therefore, any source may feel free to offer information to this office, and know that the information will be confidential, and the reporter - anonymous. Such information would be utilized only to the extent of helping to solve a sighting report. The new Project Blue Book is not an Air Force-funded agency, but is, by design, a civilian agency - of former military personnel. Please feel free to contact the Director, at the above address, or phone, for interviews or additional information. Sincerely, PROJECT BLUE BOOK Bill Pitts, Director FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PROJECT BLUE BOOK, The United States Air Force Investigative Arm for Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO's), has been reorganized as a civilian research and investigative association, comprised of (but not limited to), present and former, Air Force and other U.S. government agency personnel. The New Project Blue Book, officially name-approved by the United States Air Force, will study future UFO sighting reports, but devote further in- depth studies of the older, classic, sighting reports from the Mid-1940's through the 1960's. The original Project Blue Book closed its doors in 1969, but many of the investigators of the earlier reports found that the most important cases were then, and still are to this date, listed as "Unidentified." While some possi- ble answers were made on many reports at the time, most "answers" did not fit the actual reported sightings, and were later proven not to be the objects reported by reputable persons, including those persons who were in high-level government positions when they made the reports. The "Answers" did not fit the reports. The New Project Blue Book will be directed by industrialist Bill Pitts, a veteran investigator for all civilian UFO organizations and various govern- ment agencies. A high-level research team will re-evaluate the older reports and endeavor to determine whether the objects reported have been solid metallic-like structure and could be extra-terrestrial. An hypothesis long considered as the predominate answer. In a statement released to the media, Pitts said: "We will be seeking first-hand information, and materials, from individuals personally involved in the earlier saucer-era sighting reports, and will greatly appreciate re- ceiving from any such person, or members of the immediate family, any copies of government-agency correspondence, sighting reports, photo's and movies, (ESPECIALLY ON PLANE-GUN CAMERAS, IF AVAILABLE)." Also, FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE, OR PROOF, OF ANY ALLEGED UFO "CRASH RETRIEVAL" SITUATION WOULD BE APPRECIATED. Any such information that is received will be handled in strict confidentiality, and persons sending such materials will remain anonymous, and all materials will be returned in their entirety. Any person who may have been under "GAG-Restrictions" of the past, should come forward immediately, while they are still able to do so to assist us in this investigative endeavor of the world-wide phenomenon, Pitts said. Headquarters for the new Project Blue Book, will be at Pitts' office, 506 North 2nd Street, Fort Smith, Arkansas 72901. It is this address, which is centrally located in the United States, to which all materials should be sent. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- End of Doc.. I gave Bill a tour of Paranet Tau (in person) and a view of ParaNet Alpha from remote. He was impressed with our communications link and the Massive Library of Paranet Alpha. Bill considered the potential of ParaNet's ability to convey information both from and to the public, and has decided to make PARANET his Computer Link information system. After speaking with Bill Pitts (Director of the New Project Blue Book) for a short time he informed me that ParaNet Tau would be his Link with the ParaNet systems. Being administrator of ParaNet Tau I will report on the information and facts given me by Bill Pitts and upload them directly to the ParaNet Director & Administrator Jim Speiser at ParaNet Alpha for distribution among the other ParaNet systems. I gave Bill a copy of the ParaNet files directory as well as printouts of several of the text files. I expect to be hearing from him whenever he receives any news concerning UFO sightings, I also expect to hear from him concerning sightings reported through ParaNet. Bill informed me that he is interested in UFO sightings but will be careful in his investigations of UFO reports. I will not quote his words here con- cerning a subject that is all ready sensational and highly controversial, I will say that I think they picked a good man for the job of Director of the New Project Blue Book, and I look forward to working with him in the future. ...Bryon Smith Paranet Tau (501)-646-5812
