recent years, the foundation of the Roswell story has perhaps been buried
beneath the various purported truths which have been attached to it. Is there in
fact significant evidence that an alien craft crashed in the New Mexico desert,
or, is the explanation a Project Mogul balloon train, as evidenced in the US Air
Force's July 1994 report, which affirmed the original findings of researcher
Robert Todd. The answer might still be found if we strip away the myths and the
deceit, for the story which gave birth to an epic tale, is a simple one. The
source of the excitement was some anomalous debris which rancher Mac Brazel
found on the Foster ranch, south-east of Corona, New Mexico.
The exact date of
the discovery is uncertain, however, it was sometime between the middle of June
and early July, 1947. Initially, it seems
that Brazel didn't consider the debris to be of much consequence. According to
his son, Bill Brazel, "At first he didn't recognise the importance of it and it
was only after a day or so of thinking on it that he decided he had better go
back and take a closer look".
 It was the following evening whilst in Corona,
as Bill Brazel recalls, when "during a discussion with my uncle, Hollis Wilson
and someone that he knew from Alamogordo, that he first heard about the flying
saucer reports that were sweeping this area at that time".  As they thought
Mac Brazel may have found one of those "flying saucers", he was encouraged to
tell the authorities. The following day, Brazel travelled to Roswell with an
unknown quantity of the debris. "I believe his
original intention was to go to Roswell and buy a new Jeep pick-up truck, he
certainly wouldn't have made the trip just on account of the stuff he had
found", claimed Bill Brazel.  "Some of the news reports have it that he went
to Roswell to sell wool". "I know he didn't go there to sell wool, it was about
trading his pickup that he went". In the story carried by the Roswell Daily
Record on 9 July, 1947, it's reported that Brazel described the debris he found
as "tinfoil, paper, tape, and sticks" and confirmed "at least one paper fin had
been glued onto some of the tinfoil". Furthermore, "Considerable scotch tape and
some tape with flowers printed upon it had been used in the construction. No
string or wire were to be found, but there were some eyelets in the paper to
indicate that some sort of attachment may have been used"...
Phenomena’s co-editor Nick Redfern discusses with News Editor Stuart Miller, the contents of Nick’s new book, Body Snatchers in the Desert, which provides a controversial new explanation for the UFO crash at Roswell in 1947.SM: How did you get on this thread, the idea and material for the book?NR: This goes back to August 1996. What happened was, I did a BBC TV documentary series that was launched in ’96 called Out Of This World and it looked at various unsolved mysteries.
I did some filming at the Public Record Office about the files that
were available then. Bear in mind, this was years before the FOIA and
the bulkier filesand the stuff that people like Mathew Williams and
Andy Roberts and David Clarke had done, like going down and finding the
Working Party files, there was nothing like that then.
Back in ’96
there were just a few files, there were one or two which amounted to a
couple of hundred pages but this was the first bulky release that had
come out.So I did this programme
which was primarily about official files on Rudloe Manor and the show
aired in August ’96 and shortly after it went out, I got contacted by a
guy who said he had some inside information about the British
government’s involvement in the UFO subject and would I be interested
in speaking to him? Of course, when you write books and your name is
published in magazines or in books, you get a lot of emails and calls
or the public just write to you at the publishers. Even to this day, I
get probably three orfour a month from people following up on leads or
articles or books that I’ve written. So that in itself wasn’t strange.
What was strange was that he asked for a meeting on Euston station. I
replied that I don’t just drive down to Euston station on the word of
someone who says, “Oh, I’ve got something vaguely that I can tell you
about.” What it came down to, and he revealed a little bit more on the
phone, was that he worked at the Home Office and he had some
information that dealt with crashed UFOs stories that were known to the
I went down to meet him
and we actually had lunch on the station itself, burgers and cokes, and
what it was about was that he worked at the Home Office on immigration
issues and he showed me evidence that he did hold the position that he
claimed to hold so I knew that he at least was the personh......
Report exclusively to Unexplained Mysteries from Robert Walker O'Neal, MS-M: Our website at www.onealclan.com receives one or two e-mails each month asking if we have information about the alleged UFO incident at Roswell, NM, in 1947. We were doubtful, having read numerous official accounts that the incident resulted from a simple weather balloon - or a spy balloon test, depending on which governmental explanation account one chooses to believe. Yet we discovered a Bible code matrix (BC2000 developed by Dr. Eli Ripps, world renowned mathematician at Hebrew University, Jerusalem) concerning the event. The matrix could be interpreted many ways but we were intrigued. In November 2004, my editor,photographer and I visited the City of Roswell and interviewed many professionals, business owners, and other residents.
We researched material and documents related to the incident as provided us by the local international museum. A brief summary of our efforts is presented herein.What really happened June 7, 1947 near Roswell. The UFO crash, or the weather balloon failure dependent upon one's belief, was not the beginning of the incident. A time line of what occurred before June 7, 1947, is presented at the end of this article.On June 4, 1947, near Roswell, N.M., rancher W.W. "Mac" Brazel was awakened at his home by a loud rushing sound from the skies. He ran to his porch as a loud explosion erupted a few miles away on his ranch. Because of the ongoing thunderstorm, he decided to wait untilmorning to check it out.The next day, Mr. Brazel found metal-like pieces of a craft scattered as far as he could see. At first he thought an airplane had crashed but when he picked up bits and slices of the material, the pieces were unlike any airplane he could imagine. He could bend some of the material and crumble it in his hands, but it always snapped back into its original shape. Some portions were I-beams that he couldn't bend. Although the bendable material was lightweight, he couldn't burn it with a match.He drove his pickup 20 miles away to his nearest neighbors and asked the fellow rancher and his wife to come and inspect the unusual finding. When Mr. Brazel showed the debris he had loaded into his truck, the neighboring rancher attempted to light it with matches, as had Brazel, with the sameresu...
'Who killed President Kennedy?' is the ultimate of all conspiracies. Why was the young, American leader gunned down in November of 1963?The Roswell Incident has been around longer than the Kennedy mystery, but it is this question of who murdered Jack that is imbedded in the conscious mind of every baby-boomer. Those who remember the 50s know where they were when they heard that President Kennedy got shot. (I was let out of junior high school like the rest of America's kids).Were there multiple shooters or a lone gunman? Do we believe the party-line of a lone gunman or question what the government tells you? Who were the guilty parties in this assassination? JFK was 'killed' and 'murdered.' He was notassassinated by some 3-named, crazy lunatic.
There was indeed a conspiracy which stretched to the highest realms of power and politics.
There is a
Secret Society ritual that is 'the killing of the King.' The national
leader of the people is only a figurehead and has no real power. Power
lies behind the scenes within dark secrets. Others pull the strings of
the politician puppets. If an upstart, politician puppet makes waves or
rocks the boat or doesn't play ball.....that puppet gets eliminated. It
is why Caesar was killed. It is why Kennedy was killed. If you disturb
the real power structure, you can be targeted for removal. Such
'assassinations' demonstrate to the world who has the real power; it is
a bloody statement of who is really in charge; and the truth is our
secret rulers control from dark shadows. (There is a reason the Ace is
higher than the King in a deckof cards. The Ace represents the Secret
Societies that truly run the show).
The Kennedy Camelot era was
a naive time period. The public believed what the news told them
without question. A President's personal life was not dirt that the
media delved into. In pre-Beatle and pre-Vietnam times, people thought
'if it was in print, then it must be true.' After the great tragedy,
where a nation mourned the loss of their president, an unquestioning
public easily accepted what they told us. Over the media, we were
forced to believe it was a lone gunman: Lee Harvey Oswald with
connections to Russia and Cuba.
Through the years, other
suspects to JFK's hit have surfaced such as the Mafia and organized
crime. Jack Ruby's involvement seems to indicate an organized crime
The Cold War enemies of the
United States (Russia, China, Cuba and other communists) obviously were
not behind the killing......
