Roswell, New Mexico

July 2-8, 1947

 

Background

Sometime between the days of July 2nd and July 8th, Roswell became the landing site of 2 or 3 crashed UFOs. According to the Roswell Ufo Museum website, "in their book, A History of UFO Crashes, UFO researchers Don Schmitt and Kevin Randle say their research shows military radar had been tracking an unidentified flying object in the skies over southern New Mexico for four days. On the night of July 4, 1947, radar indicated the object had gone down about 30-40 miles northwest of Roswell." This becomes the first known crash for the locals of Roswell. A rancher named W.W. “Mack” Brazel became one of the first locals to find strange metallic debris. As he was out riding his horse to check on his sheep he discovered a large chunk of earth that appeared to have a crashed object. Brazel was so interested in the debris he found, that he decided to haul large chunks of it to his shed. His first thought was to tell the authorities in case it had been a military project gone wrong. The book mentioned before also mentions an eyewitness named William Woody claimed to have seen a "brilliant object plunge to the ground." Woody and his father tried to find the crash but they were quickly stopped and turned away by men appearing to be military.

Later in the evening a local mortician by the name of Glenn Dennis, who worked at Ballard Funeral Home, received a strange call from the morgue of RAAF. (Roswell Army Air Field, local military base) The mortuary officer was trying to obtain small hermetically sealed coffins the size of a small child and asked methods of preserving tissue that had been exposed to the elements.

The local newspaper "The Roswell Daily Record" confirmed local suspicion of a downed flying saucer:

The day after the publishing of these articles, the army retracts their statement and claims the 509th bomb group classified a weather balloon as a flying saucer by mistake. At the time the military reclassified it as weather balloon. But decades later the military changed their story again and claimed the weather balloon was a high-altitude surveillance balloon with code name of "Mogul" (Source: Ret. Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French)

First article released day after about weather balloon

Roswell citizens still aren't convinced that the crash was merely a weather balloon, but after harsh threats and a silencing from the military, most witnesses ended up staying quiet. Witnesses of the first crash claim they saw three deceased beings the size of children that had 4 fingers and that one of the beings had survived. This explains why RAAF would call the local morgue for child sized coffins and preservation tips for tissue exposed to the elements. Some theorists speculate that this crash originated from Russia. Allegedly with the help of the crazed Nazi, Dr. Josef Mengele, they created deformities on small children to make them unrecognizable and sent them in a ship from classified projects to crash land on U.S. soil to make the Americans think they were being invaded by aliens. Like I said this is just a theory and does not have evidence to support it. Most believe this crash was not something out of a black ops project.

A.K.A The Angel of Death, Mengele is infamous for his horrible experiments on living jews during the holocaust.

After harassment from the men in black, the rancher who reported the incident states that he regrets it to a local paper.

Infamous astronaut, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, (6th man to walk on the moon) who was born in Roswell personally interviews an enormous amount of locals and witnesses of the crash that he himself was convinced not only of the fact that the army recovered a flying saucer but also deceased occupants and even a living occupant. In an article from the observer written by Robin Seemangal, Dr Edgar Mitchell states the following in an interview:

""Mitchell: Well I think it’s out there in the public. Circumstances were of course, that the Roswell incident was a post World War II event. We were doing nuclear testing over in the White Sands proving ground which was right across the mountain from Roswell and the Roswell Air Field was a military base supporting that. So it seems that most likely what the aliens were interested in was the fact we had a weapons testing facility at the White Sands Proving Ground and were also interested in what we were doing or what the U.S. military was doing.

Seemangal: What exactly were these crashed aliens doing there?

Mitchell: They were observing our activities at the White Sands proving ground and were monitoring our development.

Seemangal: A story went viral two weeks ago citing you as saying, “My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth.” Can you elaborate?

Mitchell: I don’t remember speaking to them personally. I don’t know where they got that information. I didn’t make those statements. Somebody has added to my words. Those weren’t my exact words but I don’t necessarily disagree with those statements.

Seemangal: But have you been told by individuals who worked at the White Sands nuclear testing facility that there was UFO activity?

Mitchell: Yes I have.

Seemangal: You grew up near the site of the Roswell incident. Did you ever see any UFOs?

Mitchell: No, I have not personally, but I’ve spoken to individuals who were in the military and worked at the base at the time.

Seemangal: You mentioned in a previous interview that the existence of extraterrestrials was being kept from the public because of the technology they can offer and that may affect the ‘moneyed’ interest. Who are these people that keep the information secret?

Mitchell: Whoever sets the stage for military or government activity. We’ll probably never know the exact reason for why they do what they do but those are the interpretations that seem common. "

In August, 2012 an article from the Huffington Post written by Lee Speigel (Infamous OG UFOlogist) that claimed an ex-Air Force official says there was two crashes that happened in July of 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico. Ret. Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French discloses to Huffington post:

"There were actually two crashes at Roswell, which most people don’t know, French told HuffPost. “The first one was shot down by an experimental U.S. airplane that was flying out of White Sands, N.M., and it shot what was effectively an electronic pulse-type weapon that disabled and took away all the controls of the UFO, and that’s why it crashed.”

French — an Air Force pilot who was in Alamagordo, N.M., in 1947, being tested in an altitude chamber, an annual requirement for rated officers — was very specific in how the military allegedly brought down what he believes was a spacecraft from another world.

“When they hit it with that electromagnetic pulse — bingo! — there goes all their electronics and, consequently, the UFO was uncontrollable,” said French, who flew hundreds of combat missions in Korea and Southeast Asia, and who held several positions working for Military Intelligence."

French later stated, "“It was within a few miles of where the original crash was,” French said. “We think that the reason they were in there at that time was to try and recover parts and any survivors of the first crash. I’m [referring to] the people from outer space — the guys whose UFO it was."

As if his story wasn't interesting enough, French, who served 27 years in the military,  was actually a prominent member of Project Bluebook (An Air Force project which sought out to discredit UFO reports, its predecessor also known as Project Grudge) and was tasked with debunking UFOs and finding explanations for what observers had witnessed. Telling Huffington Post, "I’m one of the authors of Project Blue Book, and started with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, stationed in Spokane, Wash. One of the duties I had in 1952 was to debunk UFO stories. In other words, if someone had a UFO sighting, I and another agent would try to come up with some logical explanation for this strange aerial appearance. Most of the reports were from civilians than military. We gave our analysis and tried to debunk it by saying it was swamp fog or that the thing they saw was actually hanging on wires. It went up through channels all the way to the presidential level." (Same Article Above)

Also worth pointing out is the fact that the U.S. Air Force was created September 18, 1947 just a couple months after the Roswell incident. Prior to its inception the Air Force was just an extension of the U.S. Army. Also in 1947 is the inception of the U.S. Air Forces' project Blue Book, the group of agents tasked with the operational orders to investigate and debunk UFO reports from 1947-1969 (dates and existence confirmed by FBI: https://vault.fbi.gov/Project%20Blue%20Book%20%28UFO%29) While Project Blue Book claimed to have debunked UFO sightings it did report a big list of numerous cases reported to be anomalous and indeterminable due to "lack of evidence." 

An Example Case:

These pictures taken in Michigan in 1967 were "debunked" by Project Blue Book saying there was "Insufficient Data" because the photographer refused to release the original prints. (Really? Who can blame them? lol)

The Ramey Memo

Decades later a researcher by the name of Dr. David Rudiak discovered that in one of the 6 infamous shots of Gen. Ramey posing with the wreckage of a weather balloon, he is holding a document or memo in his hands. In this particular shot you can see that it is facing the camera. Whether Ramey intended to do this or not, we will never know. But this researcher, a former cryptographer for the U.S. Army by the name of Dr. David Rudiak was able to zoom in on the memo and decipher some of what it said. This research potentially proves that Ramey's higher ups may have sent him instructions and weather balloon debris to cover up what they really found at Roswell.

FBI Documents Concerning Roswell:

In this FBI memo, they claimed nothing out of the ordinary. Source: https://vault.fbi.gov/Roswell%20UFO/Roswell%20UFO%20Part%201%20of%201/view (Accessed: 6/1/2016)

This FBI document states there were 3 saucers that crashed and were retrieved along with human shaped beings about 3 feet tall. The document even describes what the beings were dressed in. The FBI was quick to state on their website that this was not related to Roswell. (Then WTF is it related to?) This document was created 3 years after the crash at Roswell. Guy Hottel is a confirmed and professional FBI informant. How could a trained informant be writing about incorrect intel from an event that was 3 years prior. Why would he even detail what the beings were dressed in? My point is this is an informant for the FBI, don't discredit his ability to gather correct intel. He wrote this document to debrief the director of the FBI about what he had learned. Based on the info in the document I believe it concerns the Roswell crash. But what do you think?

The Day After Roswell

A book written by Colonel Philip Corso, who was a prominent pentagon official, was eventually released. In this book, Colonel Corso tells his story of his first hand account of being tasked with the assignment of taking the wreckage of Roswell to different government contractors to be studied and reverse engineered. Some of the UFO community claim to debunk Corso's claims due to lack of sources and evidence but I personally believe this mans narrative is plausible given correlating testimonies of black ops programs but I also think his word should be given more credit due to the level of his position in the Army and Pentagon. Colonel Corso claims many technological advancements came from the reverse engineering for example lasers, kevlar, and fiber optics. Colonel Corso claims this operation was heavily compartmentalized and kept in the black ops projects. The suspected company tasked by the government to reverse engineer crashed UFOs is Lockheed Martin's Skunkworks.

Former President Bill Clinton talks about Roswell

Belfast, Ireland November 1995 Clinton Answers Roswell Question

"I got a letter from 13-year-old Ryan from Belfast. Now, Ryan, if you're out in the crowd tonight, here's the answer to your question. No, as far as I know, an alien spacecraft did not crash in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. And, Ryan, if the United States Air Force did recover alien bodies, they didn't tell me about it, either, and I want to know." -Bill Clinton (1995)
