The stories surrounding the crash in Roswell New Mexico were the start of the UFO phenomenon that we have today. Even though many stories of abductions and sightings were accounted years and centuries before, they were not taken seriously till after the Roswell crash and government cover-up.
This famous crash has been the main base for movies, books and often will be found as bases to folklores and conspirator theories. Back in 1947, the government Air Force stepped in and covered up the crash as a weather balloon and even over the years have now claimed it was an experimental aircraft from the Germans or their own. But at no time have they ever admitted what really happened and why 70+ years later they are still covering up the truth about that crash.
They had witnesses that say they know what they saw, a military officer who was used as a scapegoat swears he knows what he saw and yet to this day they were never believed fully. Is it a cover-up for proof of aliens or a more sinister cover-up on behalf of the government to hide some of the unorthodox testings they were doing back in that day and age. Most research on the subject has led down the road towards the government cover-up as to testing that was being done. Some of the top researchers in the field have concluded it has more to do with a sinister cover-up of experiments than an actual UFO. But none of them to this day believe it was the lame weather balloon excuse that was first released.
From years of reading on the subject, I am leaning towards a cover-up for government experiments. In 1947, they were working to develop better and more sophisticated aircraft. They were experimenting with atomic bomb development and the first of many experiences into biological warfare. I am convinced that the government to this day does not want us to know what they were working on back then, in fear of the restitution of the public scrutiny that would surround it. But I remain open-minded because of a letter i came across on a site that keeps me seeking the truth on Roswell.

The following is a March 30, 1998 Press Release on the subject by Ms.
By SARAH MCCLENDON
WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT
March 30th, 1998
Washington, D.C. — Unidentified Flying Objects, a term given for many
years to unexplained sightings of craft in the skies over every state in
the Union, are actual visitors from other worlds, believe a community of
scientists and technicians employed by government.
The real danger to the U.S. and perhaps this whole planet is the government
has placed such a heavy blanket of secrecy upon this issue. So much
secrecy, those in government who have knowledge showing UFOs are
identifiable feel the subject cannot be discussed by those in the know
without serious repercussions. Others are afraid their friends and
co-workers will think they are crazy if they even so much as insinuate that
UFOs are identifiable as manned craft from outside the earth. This
particularly applies to newspaper editors and publishers, reporters and
analysts. Thus the U.S. is denying itself the chance to learn more about
UFOs or to encourage research despite the fact the U. S. stands to gain
from such discussions.
Not publicized but true is that the Clinton administration, soon after
coming to office, had many briefings on the subject. Laurance Rockefeller
provided the information for the President and Mrs. Clinton. Others
provided documents and verbal briefings to presidential advisors Jack
Gibbons (science), Bruce Lindsay (personal), Anthony Lake (national
security) and Vice President Albert Gore. About the same time a three hour
briefing was given by Dr. Steven Greer to the sitting Director of the CIA,
Subsequently, Clinton instructed Webster Hubbell, when naming him to the
position of Associate Attorney General at the Justice Department, that he
wanted him to investigate and report back to him on two things,
circumstances surrounding the death of President John F. Kennedy, and the
existence of UFOs. Hubbell, despite his position and the presidential
imprimatur, was boxed in at Justice Department and never was able to find
out. All of this was disclosed in Hubbell’s memoir Friends in High Places.
Now the lid on UFOs is gradually coming off. There is a national drive
underway to get one million signatures on a petition calling for an open
Congressional hearing for government employee witnesses. Dr. Steven Greer,
Director of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence
(CSETI), devotes most of his time seeking disclosure of government evidence
proving the existence of craft manned by non-humans. Another who feels that
positive proof exists within government, is Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso
(retired), who reveals in a recent book, The Day After Roswell, that he was
in charge of the Roswell files during his tenure as head of the Army’s
Foreign Technology Division. He states unequivocally that these files
confirm the crash which occurred at Roswell, New Mexico was an alien space
craft. This completely refutes the Air Force denials and subsequent
explanations. Corso says that the crashed vehicle was studied and proved to
be manufactured of materials unknown as to source and usage in this
country. In time, he says, this and other UFOs provided technologies which
were “worked into the commercial world via front companies.” Incidentally
he vouches for the fact that this has proven to be a valuable contribution
to U.S. aircraft design and other commercial products.
After the Roswell incident, the Air Force replied to reporters’ inquiries
that this was all part of research using weather balloons and other
equipment. Corso and hundreds of others who work or have worked in secret
defense and scientific agencies, are willing to swear under oath that alien
craft are repeatedly penetrating our airspace.
Whenever the military agencies are asked to look into this matter further,
the answer is always the same – “We do not investigate UFOs.”
Read the books and research it for yourself. Many sites have been dedicated to this very subject.
