Hi Imtor . you sound quite sensible and appear open to new information so i will tell you what happend.
Mac Brazel found the debris on his ranch he spoke to a few locals and they said " hey , you might have found the remains of one of those flying discs
poeple claim to be seeing" People were reporting "flying discs" you can check newspaper articles from the time. The improtant thing to remember is
that nobody knew what these "flying discs" were or what they were made of, sure some poeple would claim et craft but the military who took reports
seriously were more concerned the "flying discs" were russian spy devices as they are in charge of the countries defense and the cold war was
Mac Brazel had seen weather balloons before and knew it wasnt a weather balloon ( see his interview with the roswell newspaper). The mogul ballons
were much larger and made of diffirent material they were also not labelled in any way such as "US Army" or anything so there was no clues to the
debris origin. Brazel phoned the army and said " i might have one of those "flying discs" on my ranch". The army sent a couple of people to
collect it and they couldnt identify it , When on the scene Brazel discussed the debris with the army people and they specualted it could be a glider
of some sort. They actually tried to recreate a glider type shape out of the debris.
The army collected the debris and did a press release saying they had recovered a "flying disc" they never said it was ET in origin. When the debris
was later identified as a mogul balloon they made up the weather balloon story as a cover for project mogul.
The thing that tricks alot of roswell believers is the fact the army used the phrase "flying disc". Today in popular culture that only means 1 thing
--flying saucer piloted by aliens. In 1947 people used the term "flying disc" as a generic description of anything that had fallen out of the sky
they couldnt identify. There are newspaper reports of people finding RADAR targets from other balloon missions and they would phone the police saying
they found a "flying disc". there are several incident like these before & after 1947. Infact it got so bad the armys policy was changed and they
were required to label all their equipment as "US army" to help people identify where it came from.
The FBI telex sent a few days after confirms the debris was balloon material & radar target becuase of the description they said.
THE DISC IS HEXAGONAL IN SHAPE AND WAS SUSPENDED FROM A BALLON [sic] BY CABLE, WHICH BALLON [sic] WAS APPROXIMATELY TWENTY FEET IN DIAMETER. MAJOR
CURTAN FURTHER ADVISED THAT THE OBJECT FOUND RESEMBLES A HIGH ALTITUDE WEATHER BALLOON WITH A RADAR REFLECTOR, BUT THAT TELEPHONIC CONVERSATION
BETWEEN THEIR OFFICE AND WRIGHT FIELD HAD NOT [unintelligible] BORNE OUT THIS BELIEF."
Pro UFO advocates dismiss roswell as a myth these days except a few who usually have a vested interest in it being ET.
