Aztec Back in Print

I was recently interviewed for a new edition of Frank Scully's old-time UFO book, Behind the Flying Saucers, which was the first title to address the controversy surrounding the alleged UFO crash at Aztec, New Mexico in 1948.
As I point out in Body Snatchers in the Desert, there is a small-but-intriguing body of evidence suggesting that the telling of the Aztec story might very well have been encouraged by the Intelligence world to steer people away from the more down-to-earth and controversial truth behind the late 1940s "UFO crashes."

Here's the Amazon link for those who might want to buy the new edition of Scully's book. And here's what Tim Green Beckley (who is republishing the book) has to say about it:
"The CONSPIRACY JOURNAL is very proud to offer this expanded version of perhaps the most seminal book in the history of the unexplained . . . a case that now stands right beside the UFO crash at Roswell, MN for its credibility and veracity. For years the Aztec case was spurned by serious researchers who did not have access to all the information now available on the crash. . . In addition to reprinting the entire, unabridged, text to the rare 50s Scully book (reset in an easy to read, 'large print,' large format edition) journalist Sean Casteel has dug deep to provide the reader with an updated account of what really happened outside this isolated desert town near the Four Corners. His up to date research on Aztec includes material supplied by such outstanding researchers as NICK REDFERN -- STANTON FRIEDMAN -- ART CAMPBELL -- SCOTT and SUZANNE RAMSEY." --Tim Beckley, Conspiracy Journal.

Tim continues:

"AN IMPORTANT RE-EXAMINATION OF AN HISTORICAL UFO CASE! - - - Were 16 alien bodies recovered from a dome-shaped device that crashed near the town of Aztec, New Mexico circa 1948? . . . Why does the FBI continue to withhold 200 pages of classified material on the case for alleged 'national security reasons?' . . . Was the incident covered up with a camouflaged 'front story' presided over by con men and scam artists, who were perhaps in the government's 'back pocket?' . . . Did President Eisenhower make contact with aliens around the same time, thus adding weight to this and other UFO crash cases?"

Cadavers, Experiments and More...

In my book Body Snatchers in the Desert I made a passing reference to a story concerning the alleged transfer to Los Alamos, New Mexico (between 1945 and 1947) of what were rumored to be a number of refrigerated Japanese cadavers used in secret experimentation. Outrageous? Some thought so; but now there's this...

Roswell & Body Snatchers at The Daily Grail

I was interviewed a few days ago by The Daily Grail. In the interview we discussed Roswell, and - in part - here's what I had to say about the 61-year-old case:

"...what I do think is that the more and more time passes, the less chance we have of resolving the older cases. That isn’t being defeatist: it’s just a fact! Look at Roswell: something clearly happened, and I’m personally convinced it was something highly controversial, and probably a down-to-earth event rather than ET.

"But, look at the cold, hard facts: nearly all of the players are dead, the government steadfastly refuses to say it was anything other than Mogul balloons and crash-test-dummies, and we have no official files on the case to suggest otherwise.

"So, short of someone on the inside leaking the goods to us, we are at complete stalemate. So, in a sense, a case like Roswell is obsolete because – no matter how significant it could be in theory – in practice it isn’t going to go anywhere anymore. And loftily demanding that the government 'tell us the truth' is utterly laughable and naive.

"Plus, witness testimony alone for Roswell will never prove ufology’s case: only a corpse or an undeniable old file will do that. I have mentioned to other people that I see Roswell as a ufological Jack the Ripper: everyone has heard of it, it happened a long time ago, there are a lot of theories, everyone is dead (mainly), there are countless books on the subject, but the mystery never gets fully solved and laid to rest. And as more time passes, so does the chance of resolving it."

And here's the rest of the interview.

The Roswell Legacy

Well, I just now received in the mail an "advance uncorrected proof" (in Word.doc form) copy of a forthcoming book titled The Roswell Legacy: The Untold Story of the First Military Officer at the 1947 Crash Site, written by Jesse Marcel, Jr., and Linda Marcel, and with a foreword from Stan Friedman.

As the publisher tells me: "In his page-turning, thriller of a non-fiction book, Marcel, Jr. explains the government cover-up and the people involved; backs up his father's knowledge and expertise as an investigator; and portrays other frightening UFO sightings. He ends the book by describing his recent, hair-raising encounter with a high U.S. official who gives the author a glimpse into a Pandora's Box of covertly funded "black government" activities that include hiding the Roswell Incident."

The book isn't actually published until September, so I'm not sure why the publisher has sent me a copy now in Word form. But, hey, I'm not complaining! As soon as time allows, I will digest and review...

Paul Kimball On Why Roswell Was Not ET

Canadian Paul Kimball is a good friend of mine. We agree on some ufological issues and disagree on others. And it's fair to say that when it comes to Roswell, we both agree and disagree. In other words, it a bit of a, ahem, "gray" area...

Basically, we are both in agreement that nothing of an extraterrestrial nature came down at Roswell. However, Paul does not subscribe to the theories - nor does he agree with the testimony - presented within the pages of my Body Snatchers in the Desert.

Nevertheless, and despite our Roswellian differences, Paul makes a good case as to why Roswell was not an ET-related event in a new article titled (what else?!) Why the "Roswell Incident" was not a crashed ET spacecraft.

Commenting on one of the difficult questions for pro-ETHers (namely the issue of why, if Roswell was E.T. in origin, did the aliens not recover the wreckage and bodies before the U.S. military arrived on the scene?) he says:

"...surely they would have moved to recover any crashed excursion module as quickly as possible, a process which, considering the advanced technology that the aliens must possess in order to get 'here' from 'there' is something that they would have accomplished before Mack Brazel discovered the debris field and then altered the military, even if that involved simply disintegrating the debris field so as to leave no trace behind of the crash."

It's a damned good question.

And, of course, there are a number of possibilities. But, to my mind - and Paul's - the reason why aliens did not race to recover the Roswell wreckage before the military was able to get its hand on the material is very simple: the Roswell wreckage wasn't alien.

MJ12 and the FBI: The 1991 Documents

Although it has been reported in a number of books (including my own Body Snatchers in the Desert) that the FBI conducted an investigation - in 1988 - of the infamous Majestic 12 documents, much less well known is the fact that the FBI was tasked with looking into MJ12 again - in 1991.

The 1991 files reveal that, somewhat oddly, on the morning of 18 October 1991 a man (whose name is deleted from the relevant FBI documents that have been declassified via the terms of the Freedom of Information Act) who lived and worked in Salt Lake City, Utah had been walking "through the lobby of his place of employment" when he found copies of the MJ12 documents "lying on the lobby floor."

His response: he contacted the FBI.

As was the case in 1988, the FBI began asking questions - on this occasion, with the Department of Defense - as it sought to get the answers. As in 1988, the FBI was informed that the documents were utterly bogus.

Rather tellingly, a comment on one of the internal FBI documents (that is now declassified) states: "The fact that this Airtel is dated on Halloween day is purely coincidental; it could have been worse and dated on the first of April."

You Can't Please Them All...

Ufology, as a collective body of souls, was hardly enamored by my Body Snatchers in the Desert. And here's the latest commentary.

Roswell, Body Snatchers and Culture of Contact

Over at my new blog at Culture of Contact (titled Nick Redfern's On Something) you can find a new article from me that lists the three things I hate most of all about Ufology.

Roswell is my Number One.

As I say in the article:

"If Roswell collapsed tomorrow as a UFO event – and I mean conclusively collapsed – would we see widespread shock and dismay from the UFO research community? Yes. Would we see overwhelming disillusionment amongst the ET faithful? I’m certain we would. And would that same ET element suffer massively as a result? Of course! But that’s exactly what happens when you build something up to such a level: when it comes crashing down to earth, the fallout is both widespread and devastating. Yes: rather like the debris field on the Foster Ranch, ironically."

Here's a link to the complete article.

The UFO Museum will also be planning events July 4-8 and most likely speakers as well, but no info is yet available on their website.
I’ll do my best to keep you posted on all developments. Please note that is an independent site right now, not affiliated with The City of Roswell nor The UFO Museum. BUT I’m stalking them on your behalf.
For those interested, I’ve also added the text of the 1947 Roswell Daily Record UFO articles to this website in case you’ve never actually read them, as well as a link for purchasing souvenir reproductions directly from the RDR.
Happy spring to you, and hope to see you this summer!

Human Experimentation: A Sordid Story

If you thought that disturbing and shocking experimentation of the type outlined in Body Snatchers in the Desert could never occur on American soil, you are very wrong or sadly deluded. Check out this for just a few of the dark things that have gone on behind closed doors...

UFOs? No: Balloons

Roswell was not the only supposed UFO event that, in reality, had a balloon link. There are these cases, too.

Jacques Vallee on Roswell

Check out Jacques Vallee's interview on Coast to Coast two days ago for his notable comments and observations on the Roswell controversy. It's available as a handy MP3 download. While many of the "I want to believe" crowd will disagree with him, Vallee is right on target.
