Less than a month after an ex-CIA official claimed that the rumors surrounding a crash in Roswell, New Mexico were true, an ex-Air Force Official has come forward to set the record straight, stating that there were actually two UFO crashes in Roswell, not just one like most conspiracy theorists believe.
the 1947 Roswell UFO controversy has been rehashed by conspiracy theorists in countless documentaries and papers and revolves around allegations that a strange object fell from the sky and was so unlike anything the Air Force had ever seen that they issued a press release stating a flying saucer had crashed in the New Mexico desert, reports The Huffington Post.
For as long as conspiracy theorists have said there was a UFO in Roswell, there have been debunkers out there trying to prove the opposite. Now, however, one of those debunkers, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French, states that there was not one, but two crashes in Roswell. French stated:
“There were actually two crashes at Roswell, which most people don’t know. The first one was shot down by an experimental U.S. airplane that was flying out of White Sands, N.M., and it shot what was effectively an electronic pulse-type weapon that disabled and took away all the controls of the UFO, and that’s why it crashed.”
French’s revelation comes less than a month after Chase Brandon, an ex-CIA Agent, stated, according to National Geographic, that:
“It was not a damn weather balloon — it was what it was billed when people first reported it. It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet, it crashed and I don’t doubt for a second that the use of the word ‘remains’ and ‘cadavers’ was exactly what people were talking about.”
Brandon tells his story about walking into the Historical Intelligence Collection section of the CIA headquarters in Langley, VA in the mid-1990s, and discovered a box that simply said Roswell. The Huffington Post notes that Brandon recalled:
“I took the box down, lifted the lid up, rummaged around inside it, put the box back on the shelf and said, ‘My god, it really happened!’”
Now it seems that French can corroborate his story. The retired Air Force pilot was in Alamagordo, New Mexico for altitude chamber testing in 1947, and told HuffPost specifically how the military reportedly brought down the UFO. He stated:
“When they hit it with that electromagnetic pulse — bingo! — there goes all their electronics and, consequently, the UFO was uncontrollable.”
Retired Army Col. John Alexander states, however, that French’s Roswell story is false. Alexander, who was given access in the 1980s to official documents and UFO accounts stated that, while UFOs are real, there was no official cover-up in Roswell, New Mexico. Alexander stated:
“No chance! Zero chance! In the 1980s, I was the guy developing all of the pulse-power weapons systems. We couldn’t have done it then. In the 60s, they had a laser system, but your range was extremely limited, and we didn’t have operational laser weapons in that time frame.”
Do you think it is possible that there was a UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947? What about two?
