|On his way back to the air field, Jesse Marcel stops by his home at 2 am and shows pieces of the strange wreckage to his wife & young son Jesse Marcel, jr. He tells them it is wreckage from a flying saucer. At about 2 pm Colonel Blanchard at Roswell AAF orders Public Information Officer of the 509 th Bomb Group Walter Haut to issue the official press release, that the Army had found the remains of a crashed a flying saucer. . And the story went out over wire & newspapers. Calls began coming into Roswell from all over the world. Within 2 hours General Clemence McMullen in Washington phones Colonel Thomas DuBose in Fort Worth.
McMullen orders DuBose to tell chief of staff to Eighth Air Force Commander General Roger Ramey to kill the flying saucer story and create a cover story. Later, a press conference is held by General Roger Ramey at Eighth Air Force headquarters in Fort Worth and that what had crashed near Roswell was a weather balloon, not a flying saucer. The strange unearthly material Marcel found is switched and Marcel is ordered to pose for the press cameras with scraps from a typical weather balloon!
At radio station KGFL, a interview with Mac Brazel is canceled, by direct orders of the FCC & the New Mexico congressional delegation who warned that they had 24 hours to find something else to do or be out of the radio business. The remaining debris is removed from both crash sites and taken to Roswell.
July 9th, 1947
At approximately 7:30 pm the Associated Press issues a world wide bulletin that the saucer story is just a weather balloon. ABC News also reports that the Roswell wreckage is a weather balloon. In the following weeks witnesses would be threatened, special flights would be diverted, files would be destroyed, officers separated and the coverup began. It would be nearly 45 years before witnesses spoke openly about the event again.
Many years later Inez Wilcox, wife of Sheriff George Wilcox tells her granddaughter Barbara Dugger that the family received death threats to keep them from speaking about the Roswell event. In 1978 Maj Jesse Marcel speaks to researchers & news media saying the wreckage he saw "was not of this earth". Jesse Marcel J.R. Goes public saying the material his dad was ordered to pose for press pictures with was NOT the same material he showed them that late night. Mortician Glen Dennis was told by military officers if you speak about this "someone will be picking your bones out of the desert." Dennis's nurse friend disappeared and was killed in an mysterious plane crash. Gen. Thomas DuBose admitted in later years the whole weather balloon story was a coverup, and was given orders from General McMullen to create the balloon story and afterwards forget the whole incident. Many other civilians were threatened with imprisonment or death and military personnel were reminded of their oaths. These seem to be very extreme measures, to cover up a weather balloon.
On January 12, 1994 , at the overwhelming request of constituents nation wide, United States Congressman Steven Schiff of Albuquerque, New Mexico, contacted the Department of Defense (D.O.D) and requested any information it had on the Roswell incident of 1947. The D.O.D stated it didn't have any and referred Schiff to the National Archives. Schiff after being told by the National Archives that they had no records, stated to the press that he found the Department of Defense's lack of response "astounding" and that he had been stonewalled by the D.O.D when requesting information regarding the Roswell Incident on behalf of constituents and witnesses.
Investigating further Schiff would contact the General Accounting Office (G.A.O.) to request a records audit related to the 1947 events. On July 28th, 1995 the GAO completed it's investigation and released a report stating that all outgoing messages from Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) for this period of time had been destroyed without proper authority. Schiff pointed out that these messages were crucial and would have shown how military officials in Roswell were explaining to their superiors exactly how officers of the only nuclear strike force on the planet in 1947, couldn't tell the difference from a weather balloon and an advanced spacecraft made of exotic materials from another world!
The Air Force Reply
In September 1994 eight months after Congressman Schiff began his investigation, the Air Force was forced to make its first public statement related to UFOs after over 25 years of silence on the matter. The report stated that the Air Force had indeed misled the American people and the world about the weather balloon story in 1947. And stated the debris found by rancher Mac Brazel in 1947 northwest of Roswell, New Mexico, was in fact a remnant of a balloon flight launched as part of a top-secret program called Project Mogul. So which lie are we to believe?
