Well, how about a come back question to you. First, is that EXACTLY what they said or one of many interpretations? If you were the responsible AF official, and you
KNEW this was not possible, what would your motive be to convey that intrepretation?
Has anyone sourced this information, ie. background check to verify the Notary Public's existence/identity, etc. Not trying to discredit you, or the facts, just want to be clear on the characters involved. I also didn't notice any NP Seal on that document. ?
DANFORTH: Florida Today (newspaper) writer Billy Cox has written many stories about UFO's and has spoken with at least one Roswell witness that I'm aware of, General Thomas Jefferson Dubose. Could you tell us about the general?
FRIEDMAN: He was a key officer who was, when I met him, retired. At the time, in 1947, he was Colonel Dubose, chief of staff of General Roger Ramey, head of the 8th Air Force, based in Fort Worth, Texas. That's where the saucer wreckage went on it's first stop. That's where Ramey put out the story, after being instructed to do so, that it was just a weather balloon.
Now, Dubose is the one, and we have sworn testimony, and he's on video, that took the call from the head of the Strategic Air Command, Clemence McMullen, who told him, in no uncertain terms, three instructions (this was after the press had already written the story on Roswell):
1) Send some of that wreckage up here with one of your colonel couriers, immediately.
2) Cover it up with the media, I don't care how you do it.
3) I don't want you to ever talk about it again, not even with General Ramey.
Those are direct quotes from Colonel Dubose. And, you know, typical of us UFO nuts, he's a West Point graduate with over 18,000 hours as a pilot. So he's on file, and Billy Cox had guts enough to talk to him.
So... 3 weeks later, General TJ Du Bose's good friend and perhaps a confidante, dies and 4 months later the General follows suit... Died Feb. 24, 1992.
I also think it could be de-spun into a useful reference piece. Does your pride of ownership prohibit your
entertaining the notion of constructive criticism ?
