22 December 2010
(STARpod.org) — For the first time, STARstream Research releases the 2006 email stream from CIA, DIA, and Office of the Director of National Intelligence source Dr. Ronald S. Pandolfi, concerning the possible use of UFO stories as a cover to conduct espionage within the United States. Not included in this release are the emails from Dr. Kit Green and Rick Doty.
According to the CIA:
Reviewing the writings of former employees is not simply an option for the Agency; nor is it a service offered as a convenience. The Federal courts have approved the process, which stems from the DCI’s statutory obligation to protect sources and methods. The courts have ruled, in effect, that prepublication review is the only way to carry out the DCI’s statutory mandate consistent with the First Amendment. In addition, prepublication review is essential if the Agency is to uphold the validity of the secrecy agreement CIA staff employees and contractors sign as a condition of employment. Nor is it optional for the individuals who sign a secrecy agreement to seek a review. It is specifically required to protect the sources and methods of collection and analysis they will learn about and which, if revealed, could cost heavily in lives, resources, and continued access to critical national security information. The review requirement is spelled out clearly in the secrecy agreement, in which the signer agrees to submit for review any material that “I contemplate disclosing publicly or that I have actually prepared for public disclosure, either during my employment…or at any time thereafter, prior to discussing it or showing it to anyone who is not authorized to have access…. I further agree that I will not take any steps toward public disclosure until I have received written permission to do so from the Central Intelligence Agency.
Therefore, we find it quite strange that a senior CIA official — Ronald S. Pandolfi — would release a discussion with a former CIA official — Christopher Kit Green — of possible espionage using UFO tales as a cover story by a New Mexico law enforcement officer — Rick Doty. (See this New Mexico State Police document.)
Here we present a sampling of the email exchange provided to our sources by Pandolfi in September 2006:

I just received a voicemail — when I saw where it was from I refused to answer the call — from Dan Smith. Here it is:
“Hello Kit. I spend last evening with Ron. He turned over all the Rick Doty Emails to me. They will be posted soon. Caryn is editing them.”
Ron may not have noticed what is in the set of emails. He has been very honest in telling me that from time-to-time (25%) he sometimes includes private material to Dan. And that later, when it is clear that private material was given to Dan by mistake, Dan returns it.
Some time ago, Ron contacted me to discuss some material about a Police Officer in New Mexico. He in the emails, he and I soon switched from his personal to his government email account. I indicated, and he responded affirmatively, that such material was private from me to him, him to me, and me to the person he asked I intercede with. I do not know what the Police Officer’s view was — and he may not care if his emails are made public.
I do. I take assurances of confidentiality seriously, especially to and from Federal Officers, State Officers, and myself.
I hope private emails to and from me are not inadvertently in the set Ron gave to Dan, and that if so you are not part of a plan to publically [sic] release them.
You, of course, may do whatever you choose — this is hardly an international criminal offense.
If, however, any emails that were private from me, or to me, or from the Police Officer to me for Ron — as Ron requested — and they relate to what I and the FBI has told me is an official investigation, I will naturally turn the set over to the Justice Department and the New Mexico State Police Internal Affairs office who is evaluating the case for the Justice Department, at the Police Officers’ request.
Ron is fully aware of this procedure, as he designed it. Ron and the Police officer have been cooperating with Internal Affairs, and the Justice Department, and have pledges from them of confidentiality. I am not sure, but I believe it is a federal offense, a felony, for a stated member of the Executive or State governments to disclose publically [sic] information they have requested as official under guise of confidentiality (Ron and I have that agreement about personal emails between just the two of us, for example), and have furthermore stated is official as part of a federal investigation. I may be wrong. But I am not a Lawyer, so I must do what Ron advises and promises.
I will of course, also copy Ron of whatever of my and his government server-related emails on the investigation are made public. I have been asked to do that by the persons currently evaluating my Security Clearance as part of my routine 10-year review and pending polygraph.
Otherwise, the word SMARMY does obtain. I prefer it not obtain to the above statements I have made, and will be certain to the best of my ability they do not ring hollow. I know what I do not know, and when matters impinge — as Ron has been clear and certain about — to relate to federal matters of national security — I will not be inactive if I even have the slightest suspicion federal or state laws are being broken. I also know that my personal suspicions of possible illegal activity have zero weight here, and so while I am suspicious of certain persons in this mess acting in a disrespectful, and unethical manner — I will not be the judge and jury and “release” material given in confidence by a suspected perpetrator — be that perpetrator Dan, Ron, You, Me, or the Police officer. Private to me stays private unless all parties state otherwise.
I do not state otherwise.
I recommend to you, as a friend — in no way as an “official” recommendation, that to the extent what Dan said on the voicemail is true, and to the extent you may be “editing” personal, private, communications from me, or Ron (especially from his dia.mil server), or the Police Officer — you send the entire “release” to Ron — and request that he send you an email from his dia.mil email account stating he is “o.k” with your releasing the material publically.
I will tell you now, if the material includes any emails from me to Ron or return on this matter, you do not have my approval to release them, even if they are edited and my name is removed. That step does not release me, at least, from my ethics.
And, after all — my request to you, once again, is not official. It is a matter of personal ethics.

Subject: RE: PRIVATE: Search For Two DIA Sources
I was not with you during the meeting you had with Barry Hennessey about Rick’s polygraph records. The meeting you and I participated in included Barry Hennessey, Col. Weaver, and the CIA CI Director and did not involve any discussion of Rick’s polygraph records. So the quote from Ms. Loscowski regarding what I did and the circumstances of the meeting could not have been correct.
More likely the person who claimed to be Ms. Loscowski described what she had read on the Internet concerning the fabricated story that you and I had met with Barry Hennessy to discuss Rick’s polygraph records. Therefore the lady who contacted you most likely was not Col. Weaver.
Your expansion of the story of the two DIA employees visiting LANL and being known to others has me concerned.
The names you provided do not correspond to any DIA employees.
There are no people with those names that have TS//SCI clearances.
If the story of the sources/visitors is true, they are falsely representing themselves as DIA employees, possibly to access sensitive facilities and acquire classified information for a foreign service.
I am nearly certain that Rick fabricated this entire story, and that he is Mr. Anonymous, Ms. Loscowski, and the two DIA sources/visitors. If so, Rick may just be having a good time, and we need not be concerned for national security. If not, there may actually be a network of foreign agents penetrating some of our most sensitive facilities under the false flag of a DIA operation. Therefore please be very clear in describing the form of communications you had with Ms. Loscowski (e.g. phone, e-mail, etc.); how you acquired the additional background concerning the DIA sources visitors; and what you know of about the many people who know them.

Subject: PRIVATE: Search For Two DIA Sources
The search for the two sources includes: (1) requesting from DIA/I&W background on what they conducted and discovered; (2) electronic searches of various databases; and (3) personal interviews with the usual suspects. So far the trail is cold and damp. DIA/I&W conducted only a cursory review of standard locator databases, identified no such individuals, and had no interactions with security.
A complete review of all databases indicates there are no DIA employees with those names. Usual suspects appear unaware of individuals using those names officially or otherwise.
Unless you can acquire additional information from Rick such as electronic copies of the original e-mails reportedly from the DIA sources, I will close the search. Most likely Rick fabricated the information, the identities of the two DIA sources, and the Mr. Anonymous e-mails.
Again I am drawn to the question why would Rick go to so much trouble for no apparent financial return?
Hypotheses include: (1) financial returns to Rick not yet apparent; (2) financial returns to a network within which Rick is a member; or (3) non-financial motivations more difficult to discern.
These are consistent with the original set of hypotheses suggested by COL Weaver.
