He says he will not reveal exactly what lay within the box that 'erased' his doubts about the Roswell incident. 'Some written material and some photographs, and that's all I will ever say to anybody about the contents of that box.'

Wow, he's awfully convincing.

Here is a snippet of him on the radio. I'd be a little more open to hearing him out if he wasn't coincidentally selling a brand new freakin' novel about aliens and the CIA. The sidebar about the testimony of Walter Haut is a far more interesting story.

Totally. I can't think of more convincing circumstantial evidence. Unless the guy was completely deranged, what would be the point in leaving such testimony after he died? Obviously he's not around to lol at the joke he pulled. So either he truly believed it was aliens or he lost his mind ages ago but had the clarity to put his insanity down on paper.

Anyone that doesn't believe in life in other parts of the universe is a fool to me. As far as Roswell is concerned, who really knows that wasn't part of it all.

It was not a weather balloon - it was what people first reported,' says Chase Brandon, a CIA agent who served 35 years with the agency. 'It was a craft that did not come from this planet.'

...that fit in a box you could put on a shelf.

OK, this may be why he's a former CIA agent.

One reason given for keeping things secret it that it would shake the religious foundations of the Earth. Well good, if revealing that we aren't the only intellignet beings in the universe will cast off the smug assumtion that it's only us and that we are living a lie, then shake away.

Ya, sounds like he's just trying to make a buck. Maybe he really is crazy and believes it but more likely he's just out for a dollar and thus pimping this.

Reason is that there's no way this "kind of" reveal would be the thing to do if it were real. Supposing there really was a secret room with a box that says "Secret Roswell stuff don't read," well revealing that and that it contained classified proof of aliens would be enough to get your ass in a world of trouble for revealing classified information. So if you are willing to deal with that, you go all the way. You aren't any more farked if you just reveal everything you saw.

Otherwise you'd keep your trap shut because you didn't want to go to jail. You'd reveal nothing, as you are required to do by law when given access to classified data.

This in between shiat? Classic BS tactic. Tell enough to make it sound like you have special "insider info" but no actual reveal so there can't be any real fact checking or disproof.

Also classified information doesn't really work this way. They don't keep it in boxes that employees can rummage through freely. It is controlled on a "need to know" basis. You are only allowed access to given information if you are working on something where you need to know it. Further, for the really highly classified stuff (TS/SCI) there are specific compartments you have to be individually cleared in to to get the information, as well as having general clearance.

Whole thing smells of complete bullshiat. Just some dude trying to cash in on the alien craze, just like the History Channel.

On Fark today, a man came to this comments section to start a conversation. He made small talk, a lonely man talking about Barton Fink and other things. I tried to be pleasant and accommodating, but my head began to hurt from his banality. I almost didn't notice it had happened, but I suddenly threw up all over my keyboard. I was not pleased, and I couldn't stop laughing.

If I had regular access to the CIA vault back then, you bet your ass I would label a box "Roswell" and put some fun stuff in it. Perfect practical joke.

I met Haut at the Roswell UFO Museum in 2002, on our way from Florida to B.C. I have an autographed poster of the famous 'UFO CRASH!' newspaper front page. There was no opportunity to talk about it, just to say hello, and get an autograph. Still on the fence about this story.

Well...when the wind blows most of New Mexico winds up in AZ or TX. So it's newer than you think.

I remote viewed this box and I clearly saw......if you want to hide this information, don't put "Roswell" on the box.

My take: whole solar systems had come and gone before our one developed. One day (maybe in 1000s of years) we will get to the stars. Someone already got here from the stars :p

And to say we cannot achieve interstellar travel is just like all the narrow minded, unimaginative fools who thought heavy than air objects could never fly (or even metal boats not being able to float)!

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy" - Shakespeare

(besides the best explanation for why every nuke armed country had planes, subs and missiles constantly on alert all over the planet (even in the middle of continental masses) for the 50+ years following WWII - they all knew what happened to the less technological cultures when we rocked up and feared the same thing (almost everyone was a racist bigot back then) - and the only defense they could come up with was "We all agree if the land anywhere we nuke the place, even if its in NYC or Moscow." ... narrow minded cowards but there it is.)
