What happened at Roswell

-A A +A
By Jay Miller

What do you suppose really happened on July 7, 1947, at the Roswell Army Air Force Base to cause Col. William “Butch” Blanchard to announce that a flying disk had been captured?

   An announcement of that magnitude would have to be carefully considered and not issued without direction from the highest authorities in Washington, D.C.

   The mystery of what happened at Roswell hinges on what took place behind closed doors that day. Official records indicate that absolutely nothing out of the ordinary occurred at the base during the entire week. Everyone who believes that, please raise your hand.

  No mention is made of anything unusual being brought to the base. There is no mention of a flying disk press release, no mention of calls from throughout the world seeking further information, no mention of calls to Eighth Army Headquarters in Fort Worth, or to top officials in Washington, D.C.

  There are people who believe the Army’s story. I put them in the same category as the crazies who talk about bodies being found. There had to be much activity. Numerous personal accounts tell of a flurry of officials and workers who flew in for some purpose.
