Major Jesse Marcel brought the crash to the attention of the airforce, and the subsequent media announcement worldwide about a UFO crash, which resulted in major Marcel's forced participation in the staged photo and statement to revoke his story and blame it on a weather balloon.
In the interview below he confesses the weather balloon story was in fact an absolute fabrication.
The years may have rolled the story into the realms of folklore - but the Roswell incident remains to intrigue current and future generations to question the official explanation and delve further into the truth behind the UFO topic. This force to know this truth, be it the curious nature of the human mind, is unstoppable.
We all deserve the right to know the truth about what happened with the Roswell incident - it should have gone down as a pivotal moment in human history. Should the truth about Roswell been revealed to the world over 66 years ago, every school child today would have grown up with the fundamental knowledge that we are not alone in the universe.
To date there are numerous deathbed confessions of Roswell witnesses and the governments best kept secret seems to have slowly unwoven.
One (not so) strange fact is that the Roswell incident occurred on July 7th 1947 and less then 3 months later by order of the National Security Act of 1947 on September 19th 1947 the CIA was created.
1979 Interview with Major Jesse Marcel on Roswell:
Its time the history books are set straight for this generation and the next.
Its time the US re-opens a serious, scientific investigation into the UFO phenomenon - with all the advances in technology we have at hand today surely a re-investigation long overdue. Ask yourself why is the government so hesitant to reopen an investigation on the UFO topic that was eagerly deemed as 'case closed' in the 1960s - if they are so sure that extra-terrestrial UFOs do not exist what is there to hide in re-opening an scientifically based re-investigation of the most noted historical and current UFO cases using the latest technology.
