Over at The UFO Iconoclasts, the RRR Group asks a valid question: if the debris, and possibly bodies and craft, recovered outside of Roswell, New Mexico in the summer of 1947 had extra-terrestrial origins, then why did the aliens’ comrades fail to attempt to recover the priceless materials before elements of the U.S. military appeared on the scene?
Of course, if ET did crash, then a number of possibilities do spring to mind:
1. The aliens wanted to introduce themselves to us in the form of a staged-crash, and as vulnerable, mortal beings, to whom we could possibly relate, and without being confronted by infinitely advanced intelligences.
2. The event was the result of some “Trojan Horse” scenario - also staged by the other-worldly ones, but for more sinister purposes - such as attempting to expose us to alien viruses, but in a seemingly innocent and accidental fashion?
3. The aliens, far away from home, may not actually have been too far in advance of us - perhaps a century or so - and simply didn’t have the adequate resources and reserves at-hand to engage in a hasty retrieval.
There is another theory: aliens didn’t try and recover the Roswell wreckage because…what happened at Roswell didn’t involve aliens…
