Thanks. Hard interview to listen to simply because of his condition and voice. Poor guy. Very interesting, though.
So, Area 51/S4 conceded some information to Eisenhower after he threatened to invade. I assume Dolan and his superior were only one small part of Eisenhower's efforts to gain information. Area 51 would've been inclined to reveal false information to Dolan's party, just to keep them off track. Personally, I think they staged the alien interviews and all that. The saucers were probably just for show. The SR-71 was going to be put into service soon and didn't contain any super-advanced tech, so that didn't matter as much. A nice cover-up for the secret technology they were really working on.
The most important piece of information they got was that the technology they were working on was a gravity engine, but that is such a vague piece of information. Any speculative civilian could've assumed that's what they were working on... Was Dolan given the correct "formula" or a fake? Most likely fake.
Very cool story.
