I am brand new here, and maybe this has been discussed before, but I am curious about a few aspects of Colonel Philip Corso's behavior around the
Roswell and UFO assertions he makes.
I'd like to hear any reactions to these thoughts I have about Col. Philip Corso, the Day After Roswell book author.
If what he says about Roswell is true-ie, the UFO crash, the aliens, the secrecy, the cover-ups, etc., then consider these:
He was a high-ranking military man, with, one can assume, very high secret clearances.
As such, he was sworn to secrecy about Roswell, if it indeed happened.
This secrecy pledge was probably valid over his lifetime, and would still be valid today.
The US government never has officially said Roswell happened, so either it did happen, and it is still classified, or it did not happen, and can't be
classified, since it did not exist.
If Roswell DID happen, and Corso disclosed a secret about a real event, that was, and is, still classified, why was he never reprimanded, punished,
sanctioned or jailed for such an offense by the US government?
If Roswell was true, and the US government wanted to send a warning message to others in the military who know this Roswell story, why did the US
government NOT do ANYTHING to Corso as a result? Why would they miss this golden opportunity. If the US government was afraid to stop Corso publicly,
they certainly had many, many covert ways of doing so. There would be any manner of ways of harming Corso, or his family, short of legal means, that
would have sent the ultimate warning message to others—DON'T TALK about Roswell. But this never happened.
If the US government failed to send a warning message to others, by prosecuting or harming Corso, does this show that Roswell never happened?
If Corso DID disclose a US Government secret of this magnitude, would he not be considered a traitor to the people with whom he served? Why have none
of THEM come out and chastised him for not upholding his secret pledge?
Even if his military contemporaries disavow the Roswell story, they can STILL chastise him for breaking his pledge of secrecy. Why has THIS not
If he was so highly-regarded in the military, and was in charge of such a sensitive, top-level project, and he did such a great job with it, why did
he never advance in rank beyond colonel, even AFTER his involvement with the project? Does this lack of advancement in rank indicate why Corso spoke
about Roswell publicly, based on sour grapes on Corso's part? Does this prove or disprove Roswell?
If he indeed disclosed a major US government secret such as Roswell, does this not cast aspersions on how reliable, honest and trustworthy he really
was, since he was sworn to secrecy?
In addition, if it did happen, why has no one else besides Corso come out and disclosed what they know about Roswell?
Corso has never stated that he was sorry for having to divulge critical, high-level US government secrets, in spite of claiming to be public-minded in
disclosing what he termed "UFO benefits to mankind". One can therefore assume that since he was not in conflict about having to break his personal
honor code, his cherished pledge as a military man, his sacred word as an officer, that he was fine with lying to the flag of the US.
Either Corso was facile at lying to the US government and his beloved military, or he was facile at lying to the public.
Which do you choose?
