FBI Releases Document Confirming Roswell UFO

Comments Filter:
  • Two Page PDF (cover page & one scanned memorandum). Says three flying saucers, three occupants each, each occupant three feet tall ... and it really is the FBI's website.

    Let's see ... three mentions of the number three, three letters in 'FBI' ... I smell a conspiracy.
  • Where are the bodies? Lost in the evidence room?

  • This is, actually on "vault.fbi.org" and seems to say exactly what the summary says.

    Two questions:

    Did somebody put this on the FBI server as a hoax?

    What did the FBI do about it? Why does it say that the military personnel involved did not investigate further in the document? This implies that they knew exactly what, and who it was flying it, otherwise wouldn't there have been an investigation?

  • This article, which mentions only "New Mexico" as the location, references a different event entirely. The site [fbi.gov] says, "Guy Hottel was a Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office. The information concerning Mr. Hottel is in regard to a March 22, 1950, memo he sent to the Director concerning flying saucers."

    The Roswell document is here [fbi.gov] and is dated July 1947.
    The "disc" discussed in reference to Roswell, NM, was hexagonally-shaped and suspended from a balloon, not at all like this article's

  • April Fool's Day was one week ago (from the posting of this item). Can't anyone count?
