+ - New Book Reports Soviets Behind Roswell UFO Scare-> 2

Submitted by

jalefkowit writes "A new book by Los Angeles Times Magazine investigative reporter Annie Jacobsen, titled "Area 51," reports that that the famous 1947 UFO sightings in Roswell, New Mexico, were actually an attempt by the Soviet Union to demonstrate that they could panic the American population if they wished. According to the book, the "UFOs" were actually aircraft derived from flying-wing technology, piloted by "child-size aviators" surgically altered by captured Nazi doctors to appear more frightening. Skeptics note that this account is based on testimony provided to Jacobsen by a single unnamed source, who she describes as one of only five engineers given full access to the crash debris at the top-secret facility in Nevada known as Area 51."

  • This is one of the silliest things I've encountered. She'll probably sell a lot of books, and set off a new UFO scare. Watch your skies for midget Nazis!

    ... sounds interesting, perhaps they should make a movie from the book, this is clearly important information to be debated seriously.
