Roswell Revisited

Annie Jacobsen is the author of the book Area 51: An Uncensored History Of America's Top Secret Military Base.

In the book, Jacobsen offers the theory that leader of the Soviet Union (at the time), Joseph Stalin, had taken influence from the infamous radio broadcast by Orson Welles in 1938 of the H.G. Wells novel War Of The Worlds, which caused widespread public panic and hysteria amongst the general public after being broadcast in a "news-flash" style radio program.

Jacobsen claims that the book is based on interviews with scientists and engineers who had been employed at Area 51.

According to Jacobsen, at the end of World War II, the Soviet Union retrieved a jet-propelled, single-wing Horten Ho 229 from Germany - the forerunner of the B2 Stealth Bomber.

Jacobsen then alleges that after recovery of the aircraft, the Nazi doctor Joseph Mengele (also known as the "Angel Of Death") was offered his very own eugenics laboratory in return for creating a crew of "grotesque, child-size aviators" aged between 12-13 years old.

It is alleged that Stalin wanted to recreate a War Of The Worlds type incident by having the Horten Ho 229 land in America causing similar hysteria.

However, the plane (which was allegedly remotely controlled from another aircraft) crashed and the American government covered up the incident.

The Horten aircraft was supposedly filled up with these "grotesque, child-size aviators" and was then sent to America where it crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico in the midsts of a violent storm.

According to Jacobsen:

“they found bodies alongside the crashed craft. These were not aliens. Nor were they consenting airmen. They were human guinea pigs. Unusually petite for pilots, they appeared to be children. Each was under five feet tall. They were grotesquely deformed, but each in the same manner as the others. They had unusually large heads and abnormally shaped oversize eyes.”

Jacobsen's Theory Debunked

Jacobsen's theory seems to make less sense and is more difficult to believe than the original allegation that an alien spacecraft really did crash at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 and it begs even more questions than the original theory.

It also doesn't seem very feasible or plausible in comparison.

Jacobsen's theory begs many questions:

  • How likely is it that all of the government and military officials who were directly involved with the Roswell incident were unable to recognize an Earthly aircraft such as the Horten Ho 229 (pictured)?

Not very likely.

  • How likely is it they would they mistake such an aircraft for a "flying disc" and send out a press release claiming they had got their hands on one, if it was actually a Horten Ho 229 that crashed?

Once again, not very likely.

  • How likely is it that the Horten Ho 229 was comprised of an unknown and unearthly seeming atomically aligned metal alloy which could not be cut, scratched or torn and would spring back to it's original shape after being bent or folded?

Yet again, not very likely.

How likely is it that the US government would use the Project Mogul weather balloon story to cover up the crash of a Horten Ho 229 aircraft?

Possible... but once again, very unlikely.

  • How likely is it that all of the government officials who were directly involved in the Roswell incident would testify to the fact that unknown materials not originating on Earth and extraterrestrial bodies were recovered from the crash, if it was nothing more than a German aircraft (even if they wanted to keep it secret)?

Highly unlikely... and all of them have testified to just that!

Many many more questions regarding Jacobsen's theory can be raised.

For example, if this was a one-off incident carried out by Stalin as a hoax then how is it that Kenneth Arnold had spotted several flying saucers flying in formation before the incident had even occurred?

How is it that official UK government documents show that the MoD (Ministry of Defense) had investigated the sighting of "flying manhole covers" in 1916?

How is it that Charlette Mann's grandfather was involved in a UFO crash where bodies were recovered in 1941?

How is it that these flying saucers appear in religious paintings that are thousands of years old?

How is it that they have been picked up on radar traveling at thousands of miles-per-hour all over the world?

How is it that they have also been picked up by NASA traveling thousands of miles-per-hour through space?

If the Horten Ho 229 was controlled remotely from another aircraft how did both aircraft bypass American radar facilities?

Why did they have to be children about 5-ft tall when there is no mention of this in War Of The Worlds?

If what crashed at Roswell was nothing more than a now known-about German aircraft then why is secrecy still being maintained over sixty years later?

How is it that UFO crashes are shown to date back to as early as 1896?

And most importantly, how did Mengele create deformed children with abnormally large eye-size when there are no genetic disorders which are known to affect eye size and it is a known scientific fact that eyes do not and cannot grow?

In addition, the UFO phenomenon does not just affect the United States.

Ecuador have released all of their files and Brazil and Mexico are closely following suit. Russia have always been reasonably open about UFOs in their country and significant events have happened in Zimbabwe.

The phenomena is worldwide. Did Stalin arrange all this too?

Jacobsen's theory offers very little credibility.

Colonel Philip J Corso claimed in his book, The Day After Roswell, that he witnessed first-hand an alien body in a vat of liquid stored inside a crate that was being transported from Roswell in 1947.

Coincidentally, Corso claims that, at first, he thought it was the body of a child but upon closer inspection realized that what he was looking at was actually an extraterrestrial biological entity.

In addition, astronaut and 6th man on the moon, Edgar Mitchell, has also confirmed from his sources at the Pentagon that an alien spacecraft really did crash in Roswell in 1947 and described the aliens as "little people who look funny to us".

Thousands upon thousands of highly ranked, reputable and credible government officials, astronauts, radar operators and pilots have now come forward to reveal the cold hard truth of the Roswell incident and the UFO phenomenon.

By claiming and releasing such information, Jacobsen is doing nothing more than undermining the perception, credibility and intelligence of all these highly ranking people, some of whom were responsible for having their fingers on the nuclear trigger... unless she has been paid to come up with a new cover story, of course!
