CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY
MEMORANDUM TO: Director, Psychological Strategy Board
SUBJECT: Flying saucers
1. I am today transmitting to the National Security Council a proposal (TAB A) in which it is concluded that the problems connected with unidentified flying objects appear to have implications for psychological warfare as well as for intelligence and operations.
2. The background for this view is presented in some details in TAB B.
3. I suggest that we discuss at an early board meeting the possible offensive and defensive utilisation of these phenomena for psychological warfare purpose.
Walter B. Smith
