50 Years After Roswell, New Evidence, Testimony Shed Light on UFO Crash
Associated Content ^ | 07-05-07 | Ranger

Posted on 07/05/2007 2:27:40 PM PDT by mission9

You probably know the story well: On the 14th of June, 1947, after a powerful thunderstorm in the desert, a rancher, William "Mac" Brazel noticed some strange debris while working on the Foster ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. He does the right thing, what any American would do. He loads some of the debris in his pickup truck, and takes the stuff into town, and shows the sheriff. The Army Air Force is called in, teams of heavy equipment and troops scour the site. A press release is given to the public by Lieutenant Walter Haut, the public relations officer at the Roswell Air base in 1947, and the sensational news is broadcast around the world: The United States military is in possession of a crashed flying saucer....

1. Nine months later, Al Gore Jr. was born.

2. It's now 60 years later, not 50 years.

Actually, I disagree with the single bullet theory merely because Oswald was using a Carcano, the most inaccurate rifle in human history. I don't think the machine was capable of making the shot it was claimed that it did.

This is great stuff - we need mysteries and conundrums. Heck, there are nerds on earth who know everything - leave some hokey for mere mortals to squabble over.

FACT:

Exactly nine months after the Roswell UFO incident ... Al Gore was born.

The Carcano was a cheap rifle ($12.00 at the time Oswald purchased it) but it was still accurate enough to kill from the distance Oswald was from the motorcade.

If you ever go to the Assassination museum in Dealy Plaza and stand in the sniper’s nest, you’d be surprised just how short a distance it was from there, to the motorcade route.

Oswald was awarded “Sharpshooter” status in the USMC. He was a good enough marksman to accomplish what he did.

I'll agree with you on that, but please don't try to sell me on the single-bullet theory.

Do you also believe TWA800 exploded & split in two due to faulty wiring?

“It’s not a theory, pal. It’s a fact. Oliver Stoned’s movie was nonsense.”

Oliver Stone(d)’s movie was a near literal rendition of Judge Garrison’s book from the late 60’s “On the Trail of the Assassins”. It diverges from Garrison’s narrative in trivial ways that most film makers might employ to transition a book to the screen. If you want to criticize the content of JFK, then criticize Judge Garrison’s narrative. The media propagandists were amazingly successful in painting JFK as Stone’s “twisted vision” without addressing the true basis of the story.

There is an excellent book on this by, of all things, an anthropologist who approached it "seriously," i.e., said "What if the story is true?" and researched it accordingly.

Saler Benson, "UFO Crash at Roswell," does a great job of showing how a) it was NOT a story until the 1970s---even the UFO kooks didn't really pay attention to it until more than 20 years after the fact; b) the story on the crash, then "crashes" evolved because the evidence never fit their theory.

Great read. http://www.amazon.com/UFO-CRASH-ROSWELL-SALER-BENSON/dp/1560987510/ref=sr_1_8/103-3295729-1019017?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1183672368&sr=1-8

Garrison was a fraud. His star witness was proven to be a liar.

That’s why the jury returned a Not-Guilty verdict against Clay Shaw in something under 45 minutes.

You need to read “Case Closed” by Gerald Posner.

Any Star Trek fan could tell you when the idea of a Trek movie was percolating in the 1970s they were going to make Spock kill JFK in another great time travel story but this script was suppressed by high echelon Paramount executives. Spock killed JFK but we will never know the truth because certain globalists want good diplomatic relations with Vulcan sometime in the future. :)

The very best data on the single bullet is in Mark Fuhrman’s recent book on the killing. He shows that there were actually three shots hitting Kennedy and Connelly—three separate shots—all from Oswald. The single bullet theory, he claims, doesn’t work but doesn’t exclude Oswald as the only shooter.

“Case Closed” is good, I have an autographed copy. Fuhrman’s book is also very good. I’ve got a library copy of Vincent Buglosi’s newest, about 10 pounds of book on the assassination. I don’t know what his take is on the single bullet yet, 1600 pages or more of information. But check out Mark Fuhrman on the case.

There is or was a gun shop owner in Baltimore that was asked to repeat that shooting since he was a well qualified marksman. He did it with time to spare using a like rifle.

I’ve always wondered why anyone would take seriously as anything other than an establishment apologist someone whose claim to journalistic fame was “Motown: Music, Money, Sex, and Power.”

We have proved that Al Gore (he invented the internet you know) is indeed an alien; how do we establish if he was the product of an alien breeding program(his/her/its embryo was rejected as unstable and placed in a human host) or was he a byproduct of a secret military-industrial complex government test manipulating the viability of the alien DNA/ human embryo???? Or is Al Gore just a natural loon unrelated to aliens and space radiation???

Actually, John Titor visited them and introduced a number of technologies, but time travel was too much for the sensitivities of the general public, so they came up with “Roswell”. Corso fell for the classified cover story of alien visitation, but it was really a lone time traveller... LOL!!

Oswald was using a Carcano, the most inaccurate rifle in human history.

Sorry, the Carcano was used by the Italian Olympic team,
With a good issue weapon and a competent gunsmith they can be made very accurate. Certainly accurate enough and fast enough operating to do what Oswald is supposed to have done.

If there was no Roswell, where’d we get the idears for them fancy lazers, night vision goggles and ah-lou-mini-um foil?

Nicola Tesla, himselft either an alien, a time traveler or someone in touch with them, described all of them fancy thingies over 100 years ago.

Seriously, look up some of the things he did invent (not to mention the things he allegedly invented that have been "suppressed") such as a radio control torpedo (demonstrated to the public in Madison Square Garden in 1898!) or a little thing called radio (as we know it today, Tesla's patent was confirmed by the Supreme Court in 1943 after his death).
