With the recent discussion concerning the infamous Roswell
event, I've come up with the following.
Well to paraphrase Sherlock Holmes, if you eleminate everything
else then what you are left with must be the answer!
Using that logic I think we have solved the UFO case of the
century. Roswell can be explained like this!
Back in 1947 the Army Air Force were secretly testing recovered
German V 2 Rockets.
They were also using the secret Project Mogul balloon array.
Sometime in either June (if you believe Ray Santilli) or in July
(if you believe Stanton Friedman, Kevin Randle, or Bill Moore)
the Army Air Force fired one off, (V 2) and it ran into a Mogul
balloon! Of course there was a _huge_ explosion and all this
crap just dropped out of the sky!
Unfortunately out in the region of Corona, or the Plains of San
Augustine or some other damn place, (depending on who you
believe) there was a group of five elderly - bald Chinese
archeologists. They had the bad luck of being underneath this
damn mess when it dropped from the sky.
Well, if you are smart enough to be here online you should be
able to figure out the rest!
Need i say any more?
Memory degrades over time which is why it is not reliable as evidence for anything.
Leave it to good ol' Don Ecker to start my day with a laugh.
I can one-up you Don. Here's my explanation for the Roswell
The military was on constant guard toward any foreign spies and
aircraft. This heightened sense of alert had everyone a wee bit
too trigger happy. Then, like on some foggy Christmas Eve,
someone saw on radar a fast mover and fired. Scattered
throughout the desert landscape were the remnants of a sleigh
with the bodies of 8 tiny reindeer and some elves. The jolly old
elf at the helm was captured, interrogated and sent to Wright
There he remained until he was identified by a colleague from
the Keebler Elf Anti-Defamation League.
As it dawned on our authorities that they'd just shot down Santa
Claus who was on his way to his summer vacation villa in
Arizona, they didn't want to alarm the public that Christmas was
not coming that year. The Easter Bunny and King Bryan of the
Leprechaun Kingdom filed a joint lawsuit against the Pentagon
and it was hushed up.
Needless to say, no one found goodies in their stockings the
following holiday season and as punishment all military
personnel present at the tragedy were sworn to secrecy.
President Truman, realizing the magnitude of the situation then
started the new wave of security agencies to ensure the safety
of holiday icons everywhere.
