'Leaked' Documents Shed New Light
On 1942 'Battle of Los Angeles' Incident
By Robert Wood
The report that 1,430 Anti-Aircraft rounds were fired at unidentified
objects over Los Angeles, California, early the morning of February
25, 1942 - approximately two and a half months after the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor - never has been seriously challenged. What's
new in the story is that five "leaked" and formerly highly
classified documents trace the beginnings of a reverse-engineering
project of non-terrestrial craft back to that 1942 event, which has
come to be known as the "Battle of Los Angeles."
According to the documents, two U.S. presidents were
aware of the top-secret project. One memo provides evidence that U.S.
military had recovered two craft believed to be of "interplanetary
origin," prompting investigation of War Department files for
evidence of any other such craft. The documents also indicate existence
of a "Special Committee on Non-Terrestrial Science and Technology"
and imply strong government interest in supporting study of non-terrestrial
biology and physics.
