Roswell

Brazel’s ranch was from an Army Air Force balloon. The new report
states many new explanations. It
says that “…witnesses are mistaken about when the events they saw
occurred, and they also are seriously mistaken
about details of the events.” The report also states: “Witnesses are
conflating together, several events that occurred
at different times, into a single event, and in every instance, the events the
witnesses saw were normal Air Force
activities.” Surprisingly, the Air Force has never produced a weather
balloon that matches witness
accounts(Rodeghier). According to CUFOS analysts, the report is
“clumsily padded to make it appear lengthy and
impressive”(Rodeghier) Large fonts, wide margins, as well as irrelevant
photos were also used. The new report also
never mentioned or made any effort to interview witnesses that are
still-living(Rodeghier). The Center for U.F.O.
Studies(CUFOS) found several flaws and problems with the new report.

The Air Force considers a man named
Gerald Anderson to be a credible and honest witness, who is simply
mistaken about places, dates, and details. The
CUFOS says that there are no Roswell researchers that believe Gerald
Anderson to be a credible witness. He
“falsified phone records and a diary to support his claims”(Rodeghier).

The Air Force also ignored the testimony of
credible witnesses. A man named Frank Kaufman was involved with the
recovery of the crashed object. Written
notes, belonging to Kaufman, were given to the Air Force before the
report was issued. Nothing pertaining to
Kaufman or his notes appeared in the report(Rodeghier). The Air Force
claims that the wreckage was a type of test
balloon with life-like dummies inside(Rodeghier) “Key witnesses cannot
be placed at any balloon
recoveries”(Rodeghier). The report “appears to depend on the UFO
witnesses having actually viewed balloon and
dummy recoveries. According to CUFOS response to the Air Force
report, “No witness involved in Roswell can be
placed at any recovery.” There is another problem e The Truth is Out
There, Somewhere: Roswell, New Mexico
Fifty years ago, in an isolated section of the southwestern desert of New
Mexico, an incident occurred that has yet
to be fully explained. It is referred to as the Roswell Incident. Others refer
to it as “Cosmic Watergate.” Several
people believe that it was a UFO,(unidentified flying object) containing
aliens, that crashed and was recovered by
the government. Others believe that there is no supportive evidence to
back this theory. The government has
released reports and determined the case to be closed. But, the facts
show, life on other planets does exist. In early
July of 1947, the incident began with several reports of a glowing object
in the sky about 9:50P.M. during a large
storm. The next morning, it was evident that something had crashed into
the land tended by rancher, W.W. “Mac”
Brazel(UFO Phenomenon 39). The strange debris was found scattered
over a large portion of his ranch. It consisted
of a “tinfoil-like substance, strands of wire, small metallic rods covered
with indecipherable writing, and pieces of
parchment-like paper”(UFO: Enigma 63). “Mac” collected a few scraps
and carried them to the local sheriff,
George Wilcox(Jeffrey). He was baffled at what he saw and contacted
the Roswell Army Air Field, “home of the
world’s only atomic attack unit”(UFO: Enigma 63). Colonel William
Blanchard, commander of the 509th Bomb
Group, ordered Major Jesse A. Marcel to investigate the matter. He was
the group’s intelligence officer. An entire
day was spent at Brazel’s ranch. The material was surveyed and then
loaded into two vehicles. Reports say that the
material was then transferred “onto a B-29 and flown to Carswell Air
Force Base in Fort Worth, Texas”(UFO:
Enigma). Several tests were conducted on the debris. Shortly before
Marcel’s death in 1978, he confessed and told
researchers that the material was “nothing made on earth”(UFO: Enigma
63). He told them of tests that were
conducted. It turns out that the material could not be dented with a
16-pound sledgehammer, nor burned with a
blowtorch. During Marcel’s interview, he also stated that the material was
no thicker than “the tinfoil in a pack of
cigarettes”(UFO: Enigma 63). Around the same time as Brazel’s
discovery, Grady L. Barnett, who was more than
100 miles away from Roswell, came across what appeared to be a
portion of a ‘flying disc'(UFO: Enigma 63).
According to Barnett, four small dead bodies lay beside it. They had “frail
limbs, and disproportionately large heads
with big slanted eyes”(UFO: Enigma). Barnett also says that he found
