Stumbled upon this goldmine while browsing through FB. Nicholas "The Chieftain" Moran explains it rather nicely...
A few years ago, the Central Intelligence Agency published a book about the A-12 Oxcart which written by their Chief Historian, David Robarge. Some were fortunate and received hard copies of this book. For those who couldn't get a hard copy, the CIA has published this book in .pdf format on their website. Click here - http://tinyurl.com/A12OxcartBookCIA to view and download this book for free.
Gotta warn you first beforehand though, with 63 pages this book is obviously a long read. I haven't found the time to even print this damn thing yet. Just thought this could be useful for anyone interested.

Hope you'll enjoy!

Anything to read on the Oxcart is good stuff to read on the Oxcart.
Am I back? Probably not.

From what I've heard, it has an overall higher speed than the SR-71.
