For decades, an NSA document has circulated recounting an NSA employee’s experience at a MUFON symposium in 1978. The memo was written in order for them to chronicle their experience, but also express their a concern about one of the presenters at the symposium, Todd Zechel. This NSA employee’s concern was that Zechel, a well known UFO researcher and co-founder of the Citizen’s Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS) group would potentially tout an “inside contact with NSA”.
This memorandum also outlined how they ultimately felt that Zechel may have fraudulently hoaxed CIA letters shown at the conference.
For many years, Zechel’s name was redacted. It wasn’t released until a 2017 MDR case by Jack Brewer brought it out.
