Re: Response to Peter Johnson on the Source of the SCORPION Acoustic Data
I got the tape as unclassified in 2008 from Dan McMillin who worked for Bell Labs in 1968 and was deeply involved in the SCORPION event.
I sent the tape to the Office of Naval Intelligence in Oct 2009 in anticipation of making a return trip there in Nov; however, health issues intervened and I never went back.
You should be able to get a copy of that tape by making a freedom-of-information request to ONI; however, I think it probable they have marked it classified.
Still, it may be worth a try. You can note that they received it from me as UNCLASSIFIED. To deny a request, they are required to prove that disclosure of the info will be damaging to US defense interests or to foreign relations, and that would be very difficult to do.
If you decide to go that route, I can provide you with the references to cite in your request. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
