I don't understand why everyone insists on the fact that Roswell was an alien crash landing. Wouldn't it make more sense for the government to be covering up the fact that they had created a Mylar balloon which was used to spy on the Soviet union? Wouldn't it be BETTER for the government to let people think it was an alien crash landing than telling the Soviets we were spying on them? If you wanted to keep what you were doing a secret wouldn't it be better to mislead the public into believing you were hiding something about Aliens as opposed to listening in on the other Superpower in the world? Just curious what your thoughts are on this.

I think there is a strong chance that there was an alien crash at Roswell and I'll try to explain why.

I've been interested in UFOs to the point I was reading books about it since I was a kid in the early 70s. That interest has waxed and waned over the years, but I'm back on it now. All the UFO events from prior to the early 70s that were poured over in the books then are the same as the pre 70s events that are poured over now, with one exception. It's Roswell. Never heard of or read a word about it in those years.

The event simply vanished from consciousness for 30 years. Yet when it came back, it was all there. The newspaper and radio stories with the big announcement, then the quick change in the story to the weather balloon did happen. No one can deny that. How did the UFO media, and it has existed for decades, miss or forget about this from 1947 to the late 70s? The lid just shouldn't have clamped down so tightly on an event that was just a weather balloon no matter how secret it's supposed application.

So are you saying that people who spoke out about it being a UFO were actually suppressed by the US government?

We can't prove that the craft that crashed was of extraterrestrial origin, but we definitely can prove that the government is covering up the truth of the event.

I agree. Just so there is no confusion here, I am NOT asking you to prove that the government is hiding a UFO. I am simply offering an alternative view of what Roswell could have been.

Because there's no way that Major Jesse Marcel mistook a Project Mogul balloon array for a crashed alien craft.

Major Jesse Marcel was the head Roswell base intelligence officer (A-2). Accordingly he was trained and familiar with all types of radar reflector systems and materials. None of the material in the Project Mogul balloon arrays was mysterious or would seem "out of this world." Only the purpose of the project was top secret, not the materials themselves.

Plus the size of the debris field Major Jesse Marcel and Mack Brazel described (((3/4 mile long and a lot of debris))) is much larger than what a Mogul Balloon array debris field would have been.

The Air Force "Cased Closed" report authored by Col. Richard L. Weaver was bunk.

Plus a considerable amount of witnesses both military and civilian saw the alien bodies.

Don't forget about the Ramey Memo. Part of it looks like "Victims of the wreck" to me. I doubt there would have been any "victims" in some stupid spy balloon.

Roswell, like a few other events, has risen to the height of legend and is the holy land for the true believers, lol. There is not a chance that most will stand idly by why you insult their religion.

The only thing that is known for sure is that they did cover up something, and that for some ODD reason it took 30 years for anyone to remember (gee, how'd that slip their mind?lol) until some whacked out "nuclear physicist" suddenly found a way to make a little money....and what do you know, people start coming out of the wood work, not fearing the government that kept them so quiet for 30 years, lol.

I personally think Roswell is laughable, but not as laughable as the Rendelsham joke.

I'm no expert on Roswell, but I'm certain the folks who did come forward, 30 years after the fact, have been asked why they said nothing for so long. As I understand it, a 30 year reunion was held and that's where the revelations started, particularly with Major Marcel.

I do know this. The initial story directly from the base was unambiguous. Crashed flying saucer. The subsequent changes in the short term and the complete disappearance of the story over 30 years speak for themselves.

Would you mind elaborating on why you think Rendelsham is such a joke? Admittedly i've only a passing interest in the subject, but i'd always been under the impression that it was a very reliably documented incident.
