By her April 15, 2009, response to my request (No.
> FOIA-09-HQ-F-0081), freedom-of-information officer Kellie N. Robinson
> displays the good ol' college try in processing my case:
> "The NASA Headquarters History Office and the NASA Headquarters
> Library conducted a search and from their searches provided the
> enclosed document responsive to your request.
> "The NASA Headquarters FOIA Requester Service Center also conducted a
> search and from that search provided a copy of the Concepts for
> Detection of Extraterrestrial Life (Report number NASA SP-56 [dated
> 1964]) and additional information regarding UFO's that may be of
> interest to you.
> "Additional documents responsive to your request, if available, would
> be maintained at the NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC), in Kennedy
> Space Center, Florida. We are forwarding your request to the KSC
> FOIA Requester Service Center for direct reply to you."

> small panel of inquiry be formed by NASA to see if there had been any
> new significant findings on UFOs since the . . . [USAF 'Condon

> Robinson's packet also contains several pieces of congressional

> A number of pages consist of indexed bibliographic summaries of
> various technical papers/reports/monographs from worldwide sources.
