I do not even consider that a UFO crashed near Roswell and that bodies were recovered. I do not give any credence to anything written about Roswell
by authors Charles Berlitz, William Moore, Stanton Friedman, Kevin Randle, Don Schmitt, Don Berliner, or by any author who promotes what is really a
myth. Nothing that they wrote, pro-UFO crash/aliens, is supported by historic facts. My opinion runs counter to the accepted norm because I am not a
believer and it is so much easier to accept the original reports than rely on manufactured lies perpetuated by greedy authors who have contempt for
the truth. Even when they realize that what they've written is erroneous they don't have the decency to admit but try to work it so that what they
present contains sanitized "truth". They continue to get away with their "patented" lies because the public does not want to accept that what was
found had a simple explanation. If it hadn't been for overzealous public information officer 1st Lieutenant Walter G. Haut, who issued the erroneous
press release, Roswell would have remained just another name on maps. But he paid a price for his big mouth!
What the Roswell UFO Crash syndrome means is best charaterized by the phrase "retrospective falsification", coined by D.H. Rawcliffe, which means
that an extraordinary story is told, then retold with embellishments and remodeled with favorable points emphasized while unfavorable ones are
dropped. False witnesses put in their two cents.
Since I wasn't there when it happened and since I did not do any research to form my opinion I don't mind telling you that I rely on the work of a
few researchers who dug deeper than the above authors and who are responsible for exposing the hidden truth. The researchers are Robert G. Todd, Karl
Pflock, Kal K. Korff, Philip J. Klass. The revelations found in their books, even with occasional errors, are superior to anything written by the
above and other pro-UFO authors.
There is a way for the Roswell UFO crash myth to be deflated but it requires a dedicated effort to achieve it. The question is: "Who would want to
join such a venture and is the effort worth it?" Except for individuals such as myself who is sick and tired of dealing with the gullible believers
who ignore history and feel that it is more hip to accept lies rather than the truth, my solution will make sense but I'm afraid that it won't
become a reality because the effort needed to bring it to fruition requires a dedication that few, if any, will want to engage in.
My solution is found in the book by Philip Klass titled: THE REAL ROSWELL CRASHED-SAUCER COVERUP
and I will quote below the significant text
that gave me the idea on how to prove that what "crashed" near Roswell was not a UFO.
From pages 120-122 between brackets [ ]:
[During the 1979 interview, Marcel recalled that "the fragments were strewn all over an area about three-quarters of a mile long and several
hundred feet wide." A long, narrow field of debris is what would be expected when one or several of the twenty-three weather balloons in the NYU
Flight #4 sprang a leak or exploded at high altitude, causing the 600-foot-long balloon train to descend. Based on debris recovered from other NYU
balloon flights, Prof. Moore offered the following logical scenario in his letter of September 25, 1995, to me:
The standard weather balloons used in this flight did not "crash." Instead they probably descended slowly to Earth after some of the
neoprene balloons lifting the train burst as a result of prolonged exposure to sunlight. When the bottom part of the balloon train touched the ground,
the upper portion of the train was [still] held aloft by the remaining balloons which were probably blown downwind by the breezes at the surface. A
landing like this usually caused the equipment at the bottom of the train [including the radar targets] to be dragged through the underbrush and to be
ripped off when any of it snagged in the shrubbery.
Often, after the equipment was ripped off as a result of wind forces, the upper part of the train had enough lift that it would rise again and float
downwind until another balloon burst from degradation in the sunlight, whereupon the descent, dragging and equipment-shedding sequence would be
From Brazel's description of the debris, it appears to me that he found only a portion of the equipment carried on that flight: he picked up broken
pieces of several radar targets and fragments of burst balloons. Absent from hs description was any mention of the sonobuoy microphone, the pressure
switches [used to maintain constant altitude], the boxes of batteries and the tubes holding the ballast; these probably were broken away from the
flight train in an earlier touchdown before the target remnants were deposited on the Foster [Brazel] Ranch....
This is an added irony of the Roswell Incident. If only one of these other objects had been found by Brazel, Marcel, or Cavitt, it would clearly
have identified the debris as being the remnants from something that had been manufactured in the United States. If, as has been erroneously claimed
by some "witnesses," the RAAF had launched a massive search effort of the surrounding area, one of these devices, or its remnants, might have been
found to correctly identify the "flying disc."
In Marcel's May 1979 interview, he recalled that the long path of debris stretched in a northeast-southwest direction, and that from the
concentration of debris, the object appeared to have been moving from northeast to southwest. More probably, considering that NYU Flight #4 had been
launched from Alamogordo, which is southwest of the Brazel ranch, the balloon train was moving in the opposite direction. But Marcel's and Cavitt's
primary objective on July 8, 1947, had been to promptly recover the debris and return it to RAAF - not
try to determine the direction in which
the object had been moving when it touched down.]
There you have it, the solution to once and for all prove that all of the pro-crash books authors had engaged in creating and perpetuating a major lie
that has had negative repercussions on the sorry state of UFOlogy. All that is needed is for one or more individuals to mount an expedition to the
area mentioned above and scan for balloon train remnants which might turn up the sonobuoy microphone, the pressure switches, the boxes of batteries
and the tubes holding the ballast. Finding any one of these would be like holding the final nail on the Roswell UFO Crash myth.
How would you, if you are a believer, feel if even one object was found and publicized? It would make "disclosure" seem like child's play and the
repercussions would affect UFOlogy for years to come. I fantasize that it would be me that would find any of the above objects, not for the fame that
it would bring but to have the last laugh on the above authors and their gullible supporters. Let me have that laugh now!
