Latest theory says Roswell UFO was Russian craft
AP/Yahoo ^ | 5/23/11

Posted on 05/23/2011 1:54:38 PM PDT by markomalley

The world famous Roswell "incident" was no UFO but rather a Russian spacecraft with "grotesque, child-size aviators" developed in human experiments by Nazi doctor and war criminal Josef Mengele, according to a theory floated by investigative journalist Annie Jacobsen.

Her book, "Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base," is about the secretive Nevada base called Area 51. One chapter offers the new Roswell theory, citing an anonymous source who says Joseph Stalin recruited Mengele and sent the craft into U.S. air space in 1947 to spark public hysteria.

Like past theories, Jacobsen writes that the U.S. government was involved in a cover-up of the UFO report, which has spawned space alien legend and turned this southern New Mexico town into a tourist attraction.

If Stalin did it to spark public hysteria, all he managed to accomplish was to start a whole new enterprise in the publishing business.

I never thought I'd be saying the thought of little green men from space crashing their spaceship into the desert has more creedence than this new theory. I wonder if George Noory has this author lined up for a C2C show yet?

Hey, it worked for Roswell’s capitalist economy, so it’s all good, right?

Remember, Josef Stalin did try to create an army of half-man half-ape.

oh pul-eze!
i’m sure smarter people here than me, can find even more obvious flaws... but:

Russia, in 1947, had an experimental aircraft that had performance and range like that?
then show no evidence of decent technology until long afterward?
and they sent it over, knowing if the disfigured “aviators” managed to land, and spoke Russian, that the USSR would have been a laughingstock.
and this never came out, after the fall of communism there,
even though many other things did?
not to mention, that Russian archives, show they had their own “Blue Book” cases they couldn’t explain.

...this is the most implausible insane theory i’ve seen in a long time. and given current politics, that’s saying something!
but for current media “investigative journalists”, lauded by AP, like the ones who STILL believe Palin wasn’t pregnant, it’s about what i’d expect.

I can't imagine how wild the other theories proposed must have been then, although you have piqued my curiosity. I guess I'm going to have to look further into this latest.

I have to admit...I agree. The Soviets were more than capable of doing something like this. Reason? It would pump up Americans to think that not only were the Soviets a threat, but the aliens were a threat. The US would have spent an entire decade studying the little men and the advanced technology....and probably in the end come to realize that they’d be ‘pranked’. You can’t admit this in public, and it’d really mess up the careers of a number of Air Force Generals who took this serious.

You mean you've never been abducted and probed by a Russian? Not too much different than a TSA search.

The fact of the matter is, there is no way computers would have advanced this quickly if we hadn't been able to backwards-engineer the crashed alien spacecraft.

There are still three things we cannot fathom: The Faster-Than-Light engine, the AntiGrav units, and the materials this amazing machine was made of. Curiously the spacecraft had no weapons.

I disagree ... Invention of the transistor (both bipolar and FET) was a reasonable outcome of solid-state physics research in the mid XX Century, and development of integrated circuits from discrete transistors is an engineering problem, not a matter of scientific discovery.

You need to do some reading about ufo’s and the Black Forest. It’ll bring you up todate.
