So it wasn’t aliens who crash landed in Roswell after all - it was those crazy Russians!
A new book from journalist Annie Jacobsen presents an in-depth historical look at our nation’s most prized hub for military testing and conspiracy theories. Candid interviews with aging scientists who worked at Area 51 during the golden years of alien paranoia revealed to Jacobsen that the infamous crash in Roswell did not produce aliens, but instead mutilated children which the Soviets (with possible contributions from Josef Mengele) had engineered to pilot their unusual space crafts. Whether it was merely a sick way of spying on the United States or an all out plan to try to hoax our citizens into a terror panic á la War of the World, either way the revelation is no doubt disturbing.
Even better yet, our government allegedly hid this information because we in turn did experiments on these children (2 of which survived the crash), and were also similarly doing genetic and mutilation manipulation to human test subjects. This all links back to the infamous cold-war era nuclear weapons contractor EG&G and their ethically questionable cooperation with the United Sates Atomic Energy Commission, an issue which President Clinton created an Advisory Committee in 1994 to investigate Human Radiation Experiments conducted between 1944 and 1974. The Committee concluded that yes, these experiments were factual and recommended ‘personal, individualized apology and provide financial compensation to those subjects of human radiation experiments, or their next of kin’. This information is available to the public through the website for the government’s Office of Heath, Safety and Security. No one ever said that the United States was exempt from crimes against humanity. We’re just better at internalizing these situations, even when they’re drug out into the open.
Overall, I’m surprised by this twist, but not skeptical of it.
