Roswell officer's amazing deathbed admission raises possibility that aliens DID visit
Daily Mail ^ | 6/30/07 | Nick Pope

Posted on 06/30/2007 9:34:23 AM PDT by msnpatriot

But last week came an astonishing new twist to the Roswell mystery - which casts new light on the incident and raises the possibility that we have, indeed, been visited by aliens.

Lieutenant Walter Haut was the public relations officer at the base in 1947, and was the man who issued the original and subsequent press releases after the crash on the orders of the base commander, Colonel William Blanchard.

Haut died last year, but left a sworn affidavit to be opened only after his death.

Last week, the text was released and asserts that the weather balloon claim was a cover story, and that the real object had been recovered by the military and stored in a hangar. He described seeing not just the craft, but alien bodies.

He wasn't the first Roswell witness to talk about bodies. Local undertaker Glenn Dennis had long claimed that he was contacted by authorities at Roswell shortly after the crash and asked to provide a number of child-sized coffins.

Good Read, and a break from the other 'Aliens' :^)

I have a 90+ year old uncle who heard the first news reports on the radio about a disc landing. He's a firm believer in the conspiracy, and coverup.

The entire article is a must read for the 'chain' of information....

“So what is it about UFOs that continues to excite our imaginations? To some people, the subject has become almost a religion and perhaps that gets to the heart of it. Those who study the subject are on a quest not just for the truth, but for meaning.”

It just goes to show you that people will believe anything!
It is a “religion” to some. Facts and reality don’t stop them for believing what they WANT to believe. It tickles the imagination. Reality isn’t as exciting ... . Yes, we are alone!

S0.........has this affidavit been scanned and posted on the net?

I’m skeptical and would like to see it for myself — presumably it wasn’t faxed to the paper from a Kinkos in Texas.

It’s about as much of a religion as scientology. It’s just like the conspiracy theory nuts that claim the lunar landing was faked and that Desert Storm was “fought” at NTC. From someone that spent six months over there, it sure didn’t look like Kalifornia to me.

These people are nutcases

There are two possibilities, either we’re alone in the universe, or we aren’t. I don’t know which is true, but both are equally frightening.

Quick, call Art Bell and the Kook to Kook show.

I will believe ET when I see him, or when his space ship crashes in Times Square or any other such venue.
Despite being over 60, spending many hours outside at night, and having owned and flown three airplanes, I have yet to see anything that could not be explained.

Personally, with billions of stars and untold number of planets and solar systems out there in the universe, I would find it nearly impossible not to think there isn’t life out there.

I don’t think that makes me a lunatic, I’m just playing the numbers game here.

I don’t know about the veracity of this claim, but to me, to assume we humans are the only life or even the most intelligent life within the vast universe is the height of arrogance.

An assumption as the the belief of something that is not contradicted by any fact whatsoever and does fit with all known data, is not arrogance. 8^)

Sounds like pretty clear thinking to me, while all else is whatchamacallit, oh yeah, - speculation.

Everytime the US comes up with a new aircraft, the number of UFO sightings increases. It happened with the Nighthawk stealth fighter.

We have a group of whackos in Gulf Breeze, FL, about 20 minutes from Pensacola, that (honest to God) don tinfoil hats and go to the beach at night to watch for UFO’s. Our newspaper, known not so affectionately as the Mullet Wrapper, has had several interviews with these people. They all look like David Byrne from the Talking Heads and sound like Art Bell on a bad acid trip.

In July 1994, in response to an inquiry from the General Accounting Office, the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force published a report, The Roswell Report: Fact vs. Fiction in the New Mexico Desert. The report concluded that the Roswell incident had been attributable to something called Project Mogul, a top secret project using high-altitude balloons to carry sensor equipment into the upper atmosphere, listening for evidence of Soviet nuclear tests.

A second U.S. Air Force report, The Roswell Report: Case Closed, was published in 1997 and focused on allegations that alien bodies were recovered. It concluded that any claims that weren't entirely fraudulent were generated by people having seen crash test dummies that were dropped from balloons from high altitude as part of Project High Dive - a study aimed at developing safe procedures for pilots or astronauts having to jump from extreme altitudes.

We lived in Roswell at the time, although I was very small. One of my aunts was a nurse at the hospital and was good friends with one of the ambulance attendees. They both swore that the story was true. Aunt’s friend was on one of the ambulances that was sent to pick them up. Everyone that was involved in any way was sworn to silence by officials. My aunt told what she knew before she died.

I have a hard time believing there was any coverup at Roswell. It’s been 50 years. Some reliable journalist would have uncovered it by now, and it would be top story on all the news outlets, regardless of their political leanings.

What never ceases to amaze me is the flood of UFO deniers that react like Pavlov's dogs whenever one of these stoies show up.

Just look at this thread for examples. They use ridicule and a distortion of the facts to heap unfair criticisms on the witnesses.

I'm not saying that we should swallow every story whole,but you have to give some sightings credence based on the facts and the status of the witnesses.

In the mid ‘60’s, when I lived in the Berkshires, we had a country wide blackout = the next morning, there were rumors that a UFO had touched down in a small field at the base of Washington Mt. (This was in Pittsfield, which had a large power pland and where one of the largest GE plants operated, including the plastics research)

People who drove out to investigate found the National Guard had set up roadblocks and no one could get near.

A policeman friend told me that he was also assigned ‘guard’ duty = and as the NG kept the public out, they also had bulldozers plowing over the field, after having Geiger counted and otherwise examined a round, ‘burned’ circle...

Myself, I hope to he*l there’s more intelligent life, keeping an eye out for the Universe, than lives here on earth. (Think Reid, Pelosi, Feinstein, .... the list goes on)

After hearing what one of the base officers son had to say on C2CAM a few nights back, I am beginning to change my mind about Roswell being tinfoil hat stuff. This guy is 71 years old but has been serving in Iraq as a flight surgeon. His dad was the guy who brought some crash site articles home to show him and his mom. I think he said that his dad also left a death bed confession. This article could be about his dad as I don’t recall what his name was/is.

Nothing new, UFO's reported before Roswell (during WWII)
Foo fighter

The term foo fighter was used by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II to describe various UFOs or mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over Europe and the Pacific theatre. Contemporary witnesses often assumed that the foo fighters were secret weapons employed by the enemy, and it was not until after the war that it was discovered neither side had anything to do with them. Despite these fears, foo fighters (whatever they might have been) were apparently never reported to have harmed or tried to harm anyone. To this day the case remains unexplained.

Though usually thought of as blobs of light or fire, several different types of reported phenomena were classified as "foo fighters".

Foo fighters were reported on many occasions from around the world;

both are equally frightening.

Both are equally something, but not frightening. Two possibilities:

a. If they are there, watching warily from a distance (we are frightening to them), we need to grow up: we no doubt have work to do when we are fit to be hired;

b. If we are alone in the universe, excepting of course the One, the Eternal, the Creator, we need to grow up: we no doubt have work to do and no one but ourselves to hire.

Like I said, the height of arrogance.

Even Project Bluebook, as it closed down, admitted that a small number of the claimed sightings couldn't explained or written off. Little green men? I doubt it.

Maybe that is why they are called UNIDENTIFED Flying Objects.

Not everything in our existence is easily explained. How much more so for the vastness of the unknown Universe?
