The Day After Roswell




The following is an extract from a book I am reading about Roswell and the flying saucer that crashed there in 1947

Those were hard times, made even harder because the U.S. military also knew that not just the free world but the whole world was under a military threat from a power far greater than the combined forces of the Soviet Union and the Republic of China. We didn’t know what the EBEs wanted at first, but we knew that between the cattle mutilations, surveillance of our secret weapons installations, reports of strange abductions of human beings, and their consistent buzzing of our unmanned and manned space launches, the EBEs weren’t just friendly visitors looking for a polite way to say “Hello, we mean you no harm.” They meant us harm, and we knew it. The problem was we couldn’t do anything about it at first, and anything we did try to do had to be done in complete secrecy or it would set off a worldwide panic, we believed.
This was where the Cold War turned out to be a tremendous opportunity for us, because it allowed us to upgrade our military preparedness in public to fight the Communists while secretly creating an arsenal and strategy to defend ourselves against the extraterrestrials. In short, the Cold War, while real enough and dangerous enough, was also a cover for us to develop a planetary tracking and defense system that looked into space as well as into the Soviets’ backyard. And the Soviets were doing the exact same thing we were, looking up at the same time they were looking down.
In an only tacitly acknowledged cooperative endeavor, the Soviets and the Americans, while each one was explicitly using the Cold War to gain an advantage over the other, both sought to develop a military capability to defend ourselves against extraterrestrials. There were very subtle indications of this policy in the types of weapons both countries developed as well as in our behavior toward one another every time one side came close to pushing the button. I can tell you definitively because I was there when we avoided nuclear war because both military commands were able to pull back when they stared over the cliff into the flaming volcano of war that threatened to engulf all of us at least four times between 1945 and 1975—the Berlin airlift, the Chinese invasion of Korea, the Cuban missile crisis, and the Yom Kippur War—and probably many more.
By the time President Nixon returned from China, having agreed to turn over Vietnam to the Communists, he had effectively turned the Soviets’ flank in the Cold War. For the next decade, the Soviets felt caught between the Chinese, with whom they’d fought border wars in the past, and the United States. When President Ronald Reagan demonstrated to Mikhail Gorbachev that the United States was capable of deploying an effective antimissile missile defense and sought Soviet cooperation in turning it against the extraterrestrials, all pretext of the Cold War ended and the great Soviet monolith in Eastern Europe began to crumble.
But the Cold War worked its magic for both superpowers by allowing them to prepare defenses against the extraterrestrials without ever having to disclose to the public what they were really doing. When you examine it, the record itself should have showed that another agenda was present throughout the Cold War. After all, why did each side really have ten or more times the number of warheads needed to completely destroy the other side’s nuclear missile arsenal as well as their major population centers? The real story behind the vast missile arsenals, the huge fleets of bombers, and the ICBM submarine platforms that both sides deployed was the threat to the aliens that if they occupied a portion of our planet, we had the firepower to obliterate them. If they attacked either the United States or the Soviet Union so as to render one of the arsenals inoperable, we had enough missiles to spare to make them pay so heavy a price for starting a war, it wasn’t even worth trying. That was part of our secret agenda behind the huge military buildups of the 1950s and 1960s: sacrifice a portion of the planet so that the rest of us could live. It enabled the United States and USSR to intimidate one another, but it also worked for the heads of the military intelligence agencies as a way to intimidate any extraterrestrial cultures. Nobody wrote any memos about this because weapons deployment during the Cold War was the cover for the secret agenda against the extraterrestrials.
Sure, there was a gamesmanship going on during those forty years from 1948 through 1989, when the Berlin Wall came down. Each side tried to get the other to spend more money than they really had to so as to weaken the economy. Our CIA consistently gave us false estimates because they were feeding us KGB information while, I know, we tried to do the same thing to the Soviets. And if the Soviets could have won the Cold War as bloodlessly as possible, they would have done so. But in the end, as the futility of mutual destruction made World War III unfightable, our real attention became more focused on the common enemy: the extraterrestrials who refused to go away.
There were subtle and not-so-subtle hints during the entire Cold War that a hidden agenda was in play. Most people just didn’t know where to look. For those who did, and there were and are plenty of them, the answers were in plain view. Although there was heavy censorship and the threat of ruined careers, plenty of military and civilian sources reported flying saucer sightings. Stories of abductions—while most were either fantasies, nightmares, or memory screens for other events in the so-called abductee’s childhood—continued to abound. Some were true, and this caused great consternation among members of the UFO working group. If the government couldn’t protect private citizens from abductions by extraterrestrials, then would that not signify a breakdown in governmental authority? That was a worry, but it didn’t come to pass.
Similarly, if too many flying saucers were seen by too many people at the same time, wouldn’t it become obvious that the military forces of the superpowers couldn’t protect their populations? For a time it was true, but the public never realized it. Soon we were able to upgrade our ability to defend our airspace so that we could amass large numbers of interceptors against the EBEs’ limited resources and pose a real threat to them. They backed off and probed our defenses only when it seemed safe. Thus, the race among the superpowers to spend billions of dollars to build the fastest and best interceptors had a true double purpose. We needed all these planes because they gave the superpowers a flexible response alternative to simply obliterating themselves with guided missiles, but at the same time both superpowers were developing the air-defense technology to defend the planet against the extraterrestrials.
Everybody wants the best and fastest plane, of course, so that we can outfly and outshoot the enemy we know about. But we were also defending our skies against an enemy we didn’t admit to having. The second agenda was always there and the Cold War provided the budgetary impetus the military needed: We were building aircraft to protect against flying saucers. And in a very real measure, we succeeded.
Both the United States and USSR were sensitive to another area where the extraterrestrials were aggressing upon our military personnel: our respective space-exploration programs. From the very beginning of our endeavors to put satellites in orbit, the extraterrestrials have been surveilling and then actively interfering with our launch vehicles and in some cases the manned and unmanned payloads themselves by buzzing them, jamming radio transmissions, causing electrical problems with the spacecrafts’ systems, or causing mechanical malfunctions. American astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts have separately reported sightings of UFOs so routinely that it’s become commonplace. The audio/video transmission downlink between space capsules and NASA, however, is a secure scrambled signal so that commentary about UFOs shadowing the spacecraft can’t be picked up by private listeners. Even then, the astronauts are specifically instructed not to report UFO sightings until they are debriefed once they’ve landed.”

This short extract explains the one thing I could never understand while growing up in the 60’s.

“Why did they have so many missiles than what was actually required to destroy all of mankind on planet earth.?”

Then there is this about the origin of night vision goggles

Spies in Space
“Of course, General Trudeau has been in touch with Don and the whole development team here,” Dr. Fredericks continued as he watched me open the night-vision file that I’d taken out of my briefcase. “And I’m aware of the nature of the material you’ve got. It’s not something we wanted to talk about over the phone.”
“I appreciate your being discreet about this, Dr. Fredericks,” I said. “If you think what I’m about to show you can help you in the development process, it’s yours to use. But the arrangement will be that everything is originated here at Fort Belvoir. All R&D will do will be to provide the budget necessary to fund this development. You use your own sources to manufacture the product and take all the credit for the process.”
“And this conversation?” Dr. Fredericks asked.
“Once you tell me you can use what I’ve brought and we get you the budget you require,” I began, “this conversation never took place and you will take my name off your appointment schedule.”
“Now you really do have my interest,” he said with just the edge of a bemused sarcasm in his voice as if he’d been down this road many times before. “What did you bring in that briefcase that’s so secret?”
And with that I held up the first of the army’s 1947 sketches of the night viewer we pulled from the wreckage at Roswell. I handed it across to Dr. Fredericks, who looked at it and turned it around with his fingertips as if he were holding one of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
“You don’t have to be so careful with it, Dr. Fredericks,” I said. “I made a few thermal copies.”
“Do you have the actual device?” he asked.
“Back at the Pentagon.”
“Who was wearing this?” he continued.
“At the time, nobody,” I told him. “According to the field report, they found this in the sand near one of the bodies.”
“Bodies? At the Roswell crash?” Now he was completely incredulous. “General Trudeau didn’t tell anyone about bodies.”
“No, that’s true,” I said. “That’s not information we give out. General Trudeau authorized me to answer any questions you have up to a certain level of security classification.”
“We’re not there yet,” Dr. Fredericks asked and asserted at the same time.
“But we’re close,” I suggested. “I can talk about the device, talk about where it was found, but that’s probably as far as I can go myself. If General Trudeau wants to give a background briefing and authorizes me to do so, then I can go deeper.”
“Funny, but I always thought Roswell was a kind of legend. You know, they found something but maybe it was Russian,” Dr. Fredericks said. Then he asked again if anyone at the Roswell retrieval had actually seen any of the creatures wearing the night-vision device in the sketches.
“No,” I said. “There was a lot of debris that spilled out of the craft. The soldiers on the retrieval team looked through one of the seams that had been split open running along the craft’s lengthwise axis and they saw view ports built into the hull. Well, what astonished them was that when they looked through the view ports, they could see daylight, or a greenish, hazy kind of diffused light that looked like dusk, but outside it was completely dark.”
Paul Fredericks was on the edge of his seat now.
“No one at the crash site knew anything about the night viewers the Germans were developing during the war,” I explained. “So even the officers on the retrieval team were amazed at what they were seeing. When they autopsied the alien at the 509th and pulled off these ‘eyepieces,’ is the only word I can use for them, they realized that they were a complicated set of reflectors that gathered all the available light and turned them into nighttime image intensifiers.” I continued, pointing to the sketch in Paul Fredericks’s hands. “Some medical officer tried to look through it down a darkened hall and it made the images stand out, but nothing was ever done with it and they packed it away with the rest of the alien.”
“Did they perform any analysis on this when they brought it back?” Fredericks asked.
“Some,” I told him. “But they had no facilities at the 509th and had to wait until they brought it back to Wright. It wasn’t until the intelligence boys at the Air Materiel Command got hold of it that they realized that this was something the Germans were trying to deploy.”
“But this is far more sophisticated,” Dr. Fredericks said. “The Germans weren’t even close to something like this.”
“Yes, sir,” I said. “Not even close. And that’s what got the intelligence people at Wright so concerned. Just how close were the Germans about to get when the war ended? What else had they gotten their hands on? Did they have help?”
“Or,” Dr. Fredericks said very slowly, “did they find a crash just like we found?”
“That’s exactly the point, Dr. Fredericks,” I said. “What did they find?”
“And if the Germans could get their hands on this material, what about the Soviets?” he asked. But he was talking to himself now, talking in a way that made him sound as if he were really thinking out loud. “Why not the Chinese or any of our European allies? Just how much of this stuff is out there?” he finally asked me.
“We don’t have any of those answers,” I told him. “At least not those of us in the army. And for obvious reasons nobody’s walking around sharing this information back and forth among the services or with any other agencies. We have what we have, and that’s as far as we’re willing to go.”
“And you don’t want me talking about this or trying to sniff around for any information,” he said.
“If we thought you were going to do that I wouldn’t even be here,” I said. “I have these reports here and descriptions of the device. I’ll leave them with you. If you think you can work these into your development program, I’ll have the material itself sent over and then it’s out of our hands completely. Farm it out to wherever you want it developed. Offer your defense contractor the right to patent it. Never tell them where you got it or what its origin might be. As far as we’re concerned whoever comes up with the night viewers you ultimately contract with to build can own the whole product and slap their name on it. All we want to do is get this thing developed. That’s it.”


It really is a fascinating read

  1. Excellent stuff, Mr Editor. Must get this book and check it out. I have developed a protocol over the years that helps me sort out bs to the best of what I’m capable of. I believe NZ signed a treaty in the 50s that under the guise of something else promised NZ protection from unknown enemies.

    The bottom line re Roswell. It was the only time authorities admitted they had a retrieved craft ( before Washington stepped in). That was because at that time there were no protocols around securing a crash sites and handling PR. The local radio host was arrested if I remember correctly and was told in no uncertain terms to ”zip it” or he would be taking a one way trip into the desert.

    Velcro was another *alleged* alien technology. Look at the time line.

    March 16, 1954
    The Original Hook & Loop Patent
    This first patent was issued on March 16, 1954 in Switzerland. From the French words “velour” (velvet) and “crochet” (hook), de Mestral created the iconic VELCRO® trademark to identify his brand of hook and loop fastener

    Check out the Rendlesham Forest incident in England. All witnesses are military.



    • The book I doubt is part of that. Too many civilian and military witnesses at a time in history when a one world government hadn’t been fleshed out. But government fake flag operations are very real. They set up a UFO researcher in Nevada. The researcher believed he was hear communications from aliens. He wasn’t, it was a government operation. The researcher eventually went mad.



  2. Funnily enough just finished yesterday a fiction “The Doomsday Conspiracy” by Sidney Sheldon – published 1991.

    This is about a crashed vehicle from outer space and the consequential hunting down and killing of the 11 witnesses to the event in order to stop the masses finding out and the resultant likely hysteria that would follow.
    In the Authors note following he gives several examples of examples he has found of sightings including several of space astronauts including Frank Borman – Gemini 7, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and Colonel Gordon Cooper on a Ptoject Mercury flight encountering a large UFO over Perth and recorded unknown voices speaking languages unknown on earth.
    He details numerous other dates on which world wide sightings had been confirmed, many dating back to the 1930’s.

    He also lists how in the short space of six years twenty three English sciientists who worked on Star -Wars- type projects died under questionable circumstances. All of them worked on different facets of electronic warfare, which included UFO research.
    This was from 1982 until 1988.
    He states how in the past three decades there have been over 70,000 reports of mysterious objects in the sky.
    I was just in Woodbourne and went into the Safe Air aircraft that was involved. It had a film of the whole thing including the lights they saw. Without doubt they were not as we know it.
