Devotees of science fiction have been convinced for decades that an alien spacecraft crashed in the desert of New Mexico – and that the
American government covered up the recovery of extraterrestrial bodies.
The so-called Roswell Incident of 1947 spawned conspiracy theories by the score.
But now, sadly for UFO spotters, a new book offers an
entirely man-made – and some would say even more bizarre – explanation, featuring two of the greatest villains of 20th century history: the Soviet
dictator Josef Stalin and the infamous Nazi “Angel of Death” Dr Joseph Mengele. The incident went largely unreported until books and documentaries
in the 1970s made allegations of alien life forms.
Area 51, the new book by Annie Jacobsen, is based on interviews with scientists and
engineers who worked in Area 51, the top secret test base in the Nevada desert.

It dismisses the alien story and puts forward the theory that
Stalin was inspired by Orson Wells’s famous radio adaptation of the HG Wells novel War of the Worlds, which provoked hysteria across America when
broadcast in 1938. According to the book, the plot started after the Soviet Union seized from Germany at the end of the war the jet-propelled, single
wing Horton Ho 229 – a fighter said to be the forerunner of the modern B2 stealth bomber.
This is where Mengele enters the story. The Nazi doctor, who experimented on prisoners in Auschwitz and fled to South America after the war, was
supposedly enlisted to create a crew of “grotesque, child-size aviators” in return for a eugenics laboratory.
The book says that the
plane was filled with “alien-like” children, aged 12 or 13, who Stalin wanted to land in America and cause hysteria similar to the 1938 broadcast.
But, the plane, remotely piloted by another aircraft, crashed and the Americans hushed up the incident. Jacobsen’s source, a retired engineer from
the former defence company EG&G, which handled the US government’s most sensitive projects, said he was put on to the Roswell project in Area 51 in

Man, people will do anything to sell a book....
was the first thing I thought when I saw this. And, I discounted in mentally and moved on to
other things. Then I got to thinking..... Deny Ignorance. So, I put it on ATS for discussion and review.
Don't Kill The Messenger. I put it here JUST IN CASE some ATSer actually has some knowledge that would somewhat aide in this theory or totallly
discount it, thus... the Deny Ignorance aspect comes into play. But why anon72?
Well, the more I thought about the bigger picture and all the people that we don't even know who come to ATS and read/learn etc. Well, in case anyone
out there every googles this topic... hopefully they will see our link and come and learn... whatever they are to take away from the great
presentations and post to topics such as this.
So, knaw on this one and let us know what you think. I will hold my thoughts as I am still looking into something I found interesting while do up
