I’m a big fan of these two authors. Their no-nonsense approach to research is refreshing, and has undoubtedly been one of a number of factors which have placed the Roswell incident at the fore of UFO reality. Carey and Schmitt have written several books about Roswell down the years, each essentially an update on their on-going research over a 25 year period.
This particular book begins with a wise and thought-provoking overview of why the stasis of non-disclosure persists, despite the well-documented evidence compelling the need for answers from government and the armed forces, which took firm control of this incredible event back in July 1947. Given the probable nature of what actually crashed on the desert floor at that time, it’s hardly surprising that the event was buried beneath an Orwellian edifice for so many years, before witnesses finally felt safe enough to come forward… helped no doubt by safety in numbers, and a changing climate towards the rights of the individual before government power post post-war.
“The Aztec UFO Incident” by Scott Ramsey, Suzanne Ramsey and Frank Thayer
I, like many readers of UFO lore, had always assumed that the widespread condemnation of the 1948 Aztec UFO crash as a hoax probably meant that it was just that – a hoax. After all, what better way to muddy the Roswell waters than create additional UFO crash stories that later turn out to be fictitious? Some of the top researchers in the field have dismissed this case in the past, mostly on the basis of a court case which brought into question the honour and integrity of some of the key ‘expert witnesses’ of the case. A domino effect has killed this story across five decades.
But not anymore…
