A few years ago a relatively big story broke in UFOlogy... some researchers had managed to enlarge the surface of the telegraph General Ramey is
holding in the infamous 'weather balloon' photographs. Most of us, here, have already heard about this and, in the past, it has been extensively
commented upon by ATSers.
Well, the other day I came across an old issue of Internationl UFO Reporter (which is published by CUFOS) that I had and opened it up, quite
accidentally, to a story they printed that displayed the text as it had (up to that time) been interpreted by various UFO researchers. Years ago I
posted some of these interpretations up here... but I can't find that thread now.
Anyways, I'd like to present you guys with those textual interpretations. The magazine displayed them in a way that had each interpretation, per
line, laid out in a way that broke up the original sequence. For ATS, I've retyped everything in sequence as it occurs in the telegraph (with each
researchers interpretation standing on its own). Now, some of the words/lines are still unreadable (the telegraph is partially folded) and so ‘-‘
will stand in, below, for those spots individual analysis could not decipher (I couldn’t align them all below). Also, capital letters will be used
(below) for letters the researchers are sure of, lower case for letters they are nearly sure of. Note that the sentences don’t line up for each
investigator, as some found more words at the beginning of each line to be intelligible than others. Lines are noted by the number at their
beginning. Also, these are arranged by oldest findings to newest:

Yes, some have sentences that are very different from others. However, if you look at the differing lines from a letter by letter perspective, many
…But, more important are the lines that DO match up. We see a near unanimous read of an ‘operation’ near Roswell in line 1, a situation where
‘victims’ from a ‘wreck’ are being shipped somewhere in line 2 (perhaps the most important thing here), a total consensus on ‘Fort Worth’
in line 3 (then command center for the 8th AF), a consensus on a ‘disc’ being shipped somewhere in line 4 (BTW, ‘disc’ may be written in
elipses ecause many eyewitness reports say it was more of a wedge or fingernail shaped craft), a line 5-6 to which there is very little agreement, but
that refers to some military activity, a line 7 that overtly discusses what could be called a ‘cover story’ (though it may seem to support the
weather balloon story, at first, notice how ‘balloon’ references are sandwiched in between things like ‘safe talk’ and ‘story for
newspapers’, and a line 8 that deals with sending a ‘crew’ (perhaps a demolition crew?) to the original site.
So, is this the smoking gun? Just to make something clear, these reviews were not put together solely by computer (in case you were wondering if a
guy programmed his machine to ensure that it spit out things that looked cool)… Upon magnification, words like ‘DISC’, VICTIMS, WRECK, and FORT
WORTH are clearly visible and readable (I’ve seen the magnifications myself). And, in case you’re also wondering if us UFO guys are reading what
we want to see into this… Several people have done blind studies that show uninformed test groups consistently see even the more sensational things
like ‘wreck’ and ‘victims’ in the telegraph.
In summary, if the Roswell crash was just a weather balloon… Would it have:
2 Require deployment of emergency military teams
3 Be referred to as a ‘wreck’
4 Involve shipping materiel overnight to sensitive locations
5 Involve recovered ‘discs’?
