UFOlogists may recognize General LeBailly's name as the guy who couldn't absolutely swear that flying saucers weren't from outer space.

Because of this, LeBailly called for a scientific and research review of Project: Blue Book, which was head by physicist Dr. Brian "Brian" O'Brien, and completed in March, 1966 with a conclusion that there was no physical evident that unidentified flying objects either existed or were any threat to the nation's security. The review did note that they would have had the review in hand much earlier if Air Force Captain John Christopher had not mysteriously disappeared during a routine flight.
