Hi I'm new here but I've been interested in this subject for nearly all my life (about 20 years or so) and I've been reading this site for some
time now and decided to join and post what I thought was something intriguing about the Roswell 47 case (maybe it's been mentioned before here but I
don't think I've ever seen this mentioned in any book I've read on the subject or anywhere else)
Here's the question: Why would the government put on display for the media (after pulling the original press release that they had a "saucer" in
their possession) the remains of a top secret weather balloon?
From what I can ascertain, they were originally going to put on display the actual debris but whoever was in charge at the time, minutes before the
press were to arrive, replaced the actual debris with sticks, tape and foil.
Why wouldn't they have just called off the press conference and told the reporters that the materials were of a top secret weather balloon that they
could not see, for reasons of national security, rather than put on a dog-and-pony show and "supposedly" risk national security by showing the media
this "top secret weather balloon"
I don't really know what this could prove, other than the military and government are so totally inept that they could leave such a big hole in
something so important, but then again they also had plans in the 1960s to fake a terrorist attack on US soil to give themselves a reason to invade
Cuba, so anything's possible
