Roswell Aliens Theory Revived by Deathbed Confession (Cue Spooky Music)
The Australian Sunday Telegraph ^ | July 01, 2007 12:30am | from correspondents in Washington

Posted on 07/01/2007 1:58:39 PM PDT by hardback

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 base commander, Colonel William Blanchard.

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

Last week, 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.

Haut is the only one of the original participants to claim to have seen alien bodies.

Haut's affidavit talks about a high-level meeting he attended with base commander Col William Blanchard and the Commander of the Eighth Army Air Force, General Roger Ramey.

Haut states that at this meeting, pieces of wreckage were handed around for participants to touch, with nobody able to identify the material.

Haut also spoke about a clean-up operation, where for months afterwards military personnel scoured both crash sites searching for all remaining pieces of debris, removing them and erasing all signs that anything unusual

Haut then tells how Colonel Blanchard took him to "Building 84" - one of the hangars at Roswell - and showed him the craft itself.

He describes a metallic egg-shaped object around 3.6m-4.5m in length and around 1.8m wide.

He said he saw no windows, wings, tail, landing gear or any other feature.

He saw two bodies on the floor, partially covered by a tarpaulin.

They are described in his statement as about 1.2m tall, with disproportionately large heads.

Towards the end of the affidavit, Haut concludes: "I am convinced that what I personally observed was some kind of craft and crew from outer space".

You be the judge!

DATE: December 26, 2002
WITNESS: Chris Xxxxxx
NOTARY: Beverlee Morgan

(1) My name is Walter G. Haut

(2) I was born on June 2, 1922

(3) My address is 1405 W. 7th Street, Roswell, NM 88203

(4) I am retired.

(5) In July, 1947, I was stationed at the Roswell Army Air Base in Roswell, New Mexico, serving as the base Public Information Officer. I had spent the 4th of July weekend (Saturday, the 5th, and Sunday, the 6th) at my private residence about 10 miles north of the base, which was located south of town.

(6) I was aware that someone had reported the remains of a downed vehicle by midmorning after my return to duty at the base on Monday, July 7. I was aware that Major Jesse A. Marcel, head of intelligence, was sent by the base commander, Col. William Blanchard, to investigate.

(7) By late in the afternoon that same day, I would learn that additional civilian reports came in regarding a second site just north of Roswell. I would spend the better part of the day attending to my regular duties hearing little if anything more.

(8) On Tuesday morning, July 8, I would attend the regularly scheduled staff meeting at 7:30 a.m. Besides Blanchard, Marcel; CIC [Counterintelligence Corp] Capt. Sheridan Cavitt; Col. James I. Hopkins, the operations officer; Lt. Col. Ulysses S. Nero, the supply officer; and from Carswell AAF in Fort Worth, Texas, Blanchard’s boss, Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey and his chief of staff, Col. Thomas J. Dubose were also in attendance. The main topic of discussion was reported by Marcel and Cavitt regarding an extensive debris field in Lincoln County approx. 75 miles NW of Roswell. A preliminary briefing was provided by Blanchard about the second site approx. 40 miles north of town. Samples of wreckage were passed around the table. It was unlike any material I had or have ever seen in my life. Pieces which resembled metal foil, paper thin yet extremely strong, and pieces with unusual markings along their length were handled from man to man, each voicing their opinion. No one was able to identify the crash debris.

(9) One of the main concerns discussed at the meeting was whether we should go public or not with the discovery. Gen. Ramey proposed a plan, which I believe originated from his bosses at the Pentagon. Attention needed to be diverted from the more important site north of town by acknowledging the other location. Too many civilians were already involved and the press already was informed. I was not completely informed how this would be accomplished.

(10) At approximately 9:30 a.m. Col. Blanchard phoned my office and dictated the press release of having in our possession a flying disc, coming from a ranch northwest of Roswell, and Marcel flying the material to higher headquarters. I was to deliver the news release to radio stations KGFL and KSWS, and newspapers the Daily Record and the Morning Dispatch.

(11) By the time the news release hit the wire services, my office was inundated with phone calls from around the world. Messages stacked up on my desk, and rather than deal with the media concern, Col Blanchard suggested that I go home and “hide out.”

(12) Before leaving the base, Col. Blanchard took me personally to Building 84 [AKA Hangar P-3], a B-29 hangar located on the east side of the tarmac. Upon first approaching the building, I observed that it was under heavy guard both outside and inside. Once inside, I was permitted from a safe distance to first observe the object just recovered north of town. It was approx. 12 to 15 feet in length, not quite as wide, about 6 feet high, and more of an egg shape. Lighting was poor, but its surface did appear metallic. No windows, portholes, wings, tail section, or landing gear were visible.

(13) Also from a distance, I was able to see a couple of bodies under a canvas tarpaulin. Only the heads extended beyond the covering, and I was not able to make out any features. The heads did appear larger than normal and the contour of the canvas suggested the size of a 10 year old child. At a later date in Blanchard’s office, he would extend his arm about 4 feet above the floor to indicate the height.

(14) I was informed of a temporary morgue set up to accommodate the recovered bodies.

(15) I was informed that the wreckage was not “hot” (radioactive).

(16) Upon his return from Fort Worth, Major Marcel described to me taking pieces of the wreckage to Gen. Ramey’s office and after returning from a map room, finding the remains of a weather balloon and radar kite substituted while he was out of the room. Marcel was very upset over this situation. We would not discuss it again.

(17) I would be allowed to make at least one visit to one of the recovery sites during the military cleanup. I would return to the base with some of the wreckage which I would display in my office.

(18) I was aware two separate teams would return to each site months later for periodic searches for any remaining evidence.

(19) I am convinced that what I personally observed was some type of craft and its crew from outer space.

(20) I have not been paid nor given anything of value to make this statement, and it is the truth to the best of my recollection.

Signed: Walter G. Haut

Flying Humanoids Filmed Over Mexican Skies
Primer Impacto ^ | 01 July 2007

Posted on 07/01/2007 1:54:09 PM PDT by BGHater

Testimony from dozens of persons and police officers depict seeing what appear to be witches flying through the skies of remote Mexican towns. Several people videotaped the strange phenomenon.

The creatures appear to infest the skies over an old cemetery.

I can think of no reason to disbelieve this. That said, I DO wonder why he waited all this time.

I used to scoff about this stuff and dismiss it out of hand until I heard someone ask why there were zero allegations of UFO’s until after the first nuclear detonations in the history of the earth......which the questioner described as a “flashlight in the dark” of the universe, which would quite naturally attract the attention of extraterrestrials.

Like I said on the other thread — there may not even be an affidavit.

Is it posted on the internet?

Based on what? Some strong foil that they could not identify? Based on "bodies" he saw? Occams razor points to other, less fantastic alternatives, even if given everything else he said is true.

Sorry, but as interested as I am in the Roswell case, unless some kind of extraordinary proof emerges (Official announcement that it was alien, or some stolen piece of evidence, like some of the foil, etc), there is probably not much else to get out of this.

I've seen the videos. Those are balloons.

It's fun and easy to scare Mexicans. Make some helium ballons that look like witches. Put a small weight on the bottom. Release them over the cemetary when people are around. Point at them with your confederates and attract attention.

It's fun and easy to scare the locals.

In Brazil, folks have seen a skeleton riding a motorcycle by the cemetary:
Motorcycle riding skeleton

...or in a small town, a UFO actually landed and frightened these folks...

They've been around for a long, long time. There is an interesting site that shows ufo's in ancient artwork.

http://www.dudeman.net/siriusly/ufo/art.shtml

I printed photos from it last year but I can't pull it up now, however when you search for it, it will take you to similar sites. Many of these were shown on a television program too. It's very interesting.

I can’t imagine someone going to their death bed with that left behind as a joke. If this is real....... It means the government has been hiding the illegal alien problem for a long time.

Yes, I guess the question sort of ignores the von Daniken type stuff.....but if there were extraterrestrials here way back then (and I certainly believe they might have been), any nuclear detonations would not have been produced by earthlings. Nonetheless, the detonations above groubd during WWII and later would surely be a signal to anyone out there capable of noticing it that we had discovered certain elements and some processes of interest to them as well as us.It seems reasonably notable that all the UFO fuss in the modern world began after our first detonations.

No offense to my Mexican cousins but I don’t really find some of their claims credible. They’ve had some UFO’s caught on tape and they've been found out later to be hoaxes.

On this news, Art Bell has retired. Although the declamation is notarized, it is just a statement and was released in December.

Thanks, very interesting site. I’d seen a couple of them but so many of them really makes one think.

I had to go to the main page and then link to this -

It sure seems to. On some television program about UFO's there was a report about a UFO outside a guardhouse on a base. Before it left all of their underground missils had been deactivated. I hope they were some of the "good guys" and deactivated our enemies as well.

Thank you so much for that link. I think it does more than “make one think”. What could they possible be except what they appear to be? The paintings aren’t hoaxes as they were painted long before there was anything except a bird flying in the air.

I believe this man’s “deathbed confession”. There are just too many “normal” people that have reported them for it not to be true.
