Amelia Earhart, Classified Files

I was doing some research on on another matter when a pop up came up saying they had the classified files on Amelia Earhart. Of course I stopped what I was doing and followed the link. It has 73 pages, I copied the first three, hoping all of you could read them but it doesn't seem like they came out big enough to read. Plus they came out backwards, the first page you see is page 3, page 3 is page 1 and so forth.
So, I've condensed the first three pages into this: In 1960 two Air Force officers turned in evidence that Amelia Earhart had been excuted by the Japanese on Saipan Island (it does not say what the evidence is). After investigating the government said Amelia was never on Saipan.
Then a Mr. Devine said he saw Amelia's grave when he was on Saipan in 1944-45. Because of this the Navy was asked to investigate.
That's it for the first three pages, so I'll digest the rest and do another blog on it. But it does not look good for our Amelia.

Oh, my goodness! I could read them just fine. I wonder about, indeed. It does NOT look good for our Amelia.

I've always wondered what happened to her...

How interesting! Keep reporting on your findings.

Beth, oh good I am glad that you could read them. I wanted very much for everyone to see them for themselves.

Betty, will do. I will be reading more of the file today :)

I couldn't read them -- I will try later

Kay, sorry you couldn't read them. I condensed what they said in the post but sometimes doing that you don't see and tell what others can.

I've read the rest of the report and will be doing a post later on today about it
