- Skywatch International Inc. Executive Director Bill Hamilton
reports he drove105 miles to the MUFON Orange County to hear the presentation
by Roswell researcher Don Schmitt. Don said, "Almost fifty-five
years and four explanations have past and still the Roswell crash of 1947
remains one of the greatest mysteries of all time. Within recent years
there has been a proliferation of anti-Roswell books that are not only
debunking, but resort to nothing less than pure character assassination.
If the critics have won the day why do they see the need to continue the
fight in light of their apparent victory? Or is it all intended to stall
for time as the remaining witnesses are quickly passing on? In the summer
of 1947, an interplanetary craft of unknown origin crashed in the high
desert region of southeastern New Mexico during a severe thunder-and-lightning
storm near the small town of Corona. A local sheep rancher found its strange
debris - and something else - while riding his horse.
- Whether by mistake or by intention, the Army Air Force first declared
that they had recovered a "flying saucer", and that they were
shipping it to "higher headquarters" for scrutiny. Within hours
they said that the 509th Command in Roswell and the local rancher were
wrong - that what they had found was nothing more than a weather balloon
and a tin-foil radar target. To enforce this new version of the story,
the Air Force resorted to witness-tampering and intimidation: monetary
rewards, new duty assignments and security oaths to silence witnesses.
- Since then, the Air Force has admitted that they lied
back in 1947 with their weather balloon story. They now say that the debris
was the remains of a rubber balloon and tin-foil radar target from a then
Top Secret project - Project Mogul - which was trying to detect Soviet
nuclear detonations by means of high-altitude, balloon-borne, acoustic-sensors.
A Top Secret project - yes, but the balloon and radar targets were still
the same as bise to spare no expense, to leave no stone unturned and to
follow every lead until the truth is known. World War II veterans are
expiring at the rate of 1,500 each day. Time is, therefore, of the essence.
There were new fascinating things learned weekly.
- 1) About 2-1/2 miles from the
debris field, two alien bodies were found as if they were blown out of
the craft after an explosion. These beings looked almost like miniature
humans. Eyewitness accounts show they had human-like eyes, ear shells,
but no hair on their bodies. These were NOT Grays. More bodies (4?) were
discovered near the crashed craft. Two were found alive!
- 2) General Roger Ramey had subsequent involvement with
Project Bluebook and is shown in a press photo talking to General Samford
(this photo is cropped at LINK
and General Ramey, on left, has face cut out of picture) and the famous
Captain Ruppelt. Ramey was heard to remark that the most likely source
of the UFOs was interplanetary.
- 3) There are witnesses that still won't talk. I talked
to one who is still living in Orange County and we hope to get a recorded
statement from him. Once all the Roswell observers die, it can all be swept
under the rug."
