Return to Roswell

It’s been 65 years since the ROSWELL incident; the infamous UFO crash in the little town of Roswell, New Mexico. The alleged UFO crashed at a ranch and initial reports claimed a flying saucer was acquired by the Air Force. However, later reports said the what was actually discovered was nothing more than a weather balloon.

Conspiracy theorists for years have gone back and forth on what actually happened that day. Even as recently as 1994/5 the U.S. Government came forward to “clear the air” on what actually happened that day in June of 1947. They admitted that the remains of the crash were not in fact pieces from a weather balloon, but from something dubbed Project Mogul. The project used high flying balloons with sensors to detect atomic testing being done by the Soviets. One has to remember this ROSWELL event was at the beginning of the Cold War era.

Not many bought the Project Mogul story, yet the documentaries that followed only served to further obscure the truth. In fact one such documentary sent investigators requesting for the archived files regarding the ROSWELL incident. They turned up nothing but the items  used in the original cover story; tinfoil, pieces of wood, and what would later be described as a weather balloon.

The Huffington Post published an article on the ROSWELL anniversary where a former CIA officer (Chase Brandon) revealed just enough about ROSWELL to let us know there is more.

It was not a damn weather balloon — it was what it was billed when people first reported it. It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet, it crashed and I don’t doubt for a second that the use of the word ‘remains’ and ‘cadavers’ was exactly what people were talking about.

Of course BRANDON does have a book coming up and it does make you wonder if perhaps this is a publicity stunt.

A recent memo became available on the FBI’s own website as part of the Freedom of Information act that should offer some credibility to the original story.


All this keeps the skeptical mind busy. A part of me will always go back and forth on the matter; is it real?

What do you think?

One Response to Return to Roswell
  1. My inner child that spent so many hot Indiana summers looking up at the stars wishes Roswell is indeed a legitimate first contact. But the adult thinks the government wasn’t sophisticated enough at that time for a huge cover-up that would need to remain covered up for 50+ years. Area 51 was in place before the siting, correct? So it was a secretive place to test stuff, and that stuff failed. Rather than let the Russians know what’s going on, it’s completely plausible to me that it could have been a device they didn’t want anyone to know about.

    I will never deny the possibility that there are ‘other’s out there, based simply on mathematical probability, but I think we’re way too dumb as a species to warrant more than a look see. When we collectively put our big boy pants on as a species, stop killing ourselves over territory, and stop making theatrical displays of tiny children dressed as adults for plastic gold trophies, then they’ll take a second look.

    I really enjoyed this entry. More please. 🙂
