It is time once again for the annual Roswell UFO Festival, July 2-5. This is, in my opinion, the top UFO-related event in the world, because the Roswell incident of 1947 has proven to be definitive in validating the UFO phenomenon.
Skeptics refuse to accept this, and even believers don’t seem to realize just what it is about the Roswell story that proves UFOs are real. The debate just goes on and on, on radio talk shows mostly, although the solution has been right out in the open since the public was first informed, back on July 8, 1947. The continuing performances of dedicated skeptics deriding UFOs is a monstrous fraud upon the public, which the public has been witless enough to let pass, because it has had little incentive and therefore little abiding interest in focusing upon the certain but supremely awkward truth.
Roswell UFO Festival Basis
The facts that prove the reality of the UFO crash near Roswell are these (and they are deceptively simple, so listen closely): 1) The military itself reported the crash to the world media as genuine, and 2) The day after the initial public release of the story, higher military authority changed that story, claiming that the wreckage recovered was in fact a weather balloon array, mistaken for alien material by the Roswell air field personnel.
Why do these facts prove the Roswell UFO? Because both the intelligence officer and commanding officer of the Roswell military post examined the wreckage and confirmed its alien nature. (I won’t dwell on the details here. You can best get them on roswellufomuseum.com and other sites dedicated to the event.) These officers, with the added concurrence of the post’s information officer, put out to the world the original story that they had retrieved a bonafide UFO of non-man-made materials.
These were the top officers of a wartime bomber group, one of the most serious occupations in the world. (If you haven’t been in the military and don’t know just how serious it was and is, in and out of war, check out the movie “Twelve O’Clock High,” made in 1949 about a wartime bomber group.) They would not begin to think of fooling around with such a story, they would have to have been insane to risk both their own and, even worse, the military’s reputations. They were entirely professional and competent. They would not have identified the craft as alien without overwhelming evidence. They were sincere in their identification and honest and quick in sending out the story to the world. These career military officers were never impugned in their character, honesty or on-going competence in their duties.
Military higher-ups did, however, impugn their basic competence to recognize military hardware, when they issued pictures of the intelligence officer, Jesse Marcel, with supposed crash material, in which that material was obviously flimsy tin foil attached to thin wooden sticks – a childish fake, perpetrated upon an all-too-trusting public more than ready to laugh rather than look closely, in the years following a long and desperate war. The Roswell officers went along with this deception, under orders, but the issuing of this obviously flimsy story in fact proved the reality of the UFO, because it is simply inconceivable that a competent army intelligence officer, of a wartime bomber group (post-World War II, in 1947, but into the Cold War by then), would not see what any teenage model builder could see was faked “crash” material.
No, the Roswell officers knew what they had recovered was real. They reported it so, to the world. The quick effort to portray their identification as premature and in fact embarrassingly wrong, should have shown any competent investigator that their superiors were engaging in a cover-up of the truth. It was such a paper-thin cover-up (literally, given the flimsy “wreckage” brought out) that it counts rather as confirming evidence of the reality of the UFO. Yet the public has let the cover-up slide over them ever since, even after Jesse Marcel finally came forward, in 1978, with the truth as he knew it, better than anyone.
You need to know that many old, ongoing debates really should have been settled long ago. Unfortunately, the solutions have been suppressed through misdirection, and vainglorious impugning of the clear facts, by higher authorities – in both government and in science. Those authorities are unwilling to face self-correction, as is a public content with easy dogmas (both ancient and modern) and they are unwilling to face new truths. The Roswell UFO is just one of many. This is the defining crisis of our time. See theendofthemystery for information about the discovery that overturns much that science pretends to know about our world and its origin.
