Former UFO debunker now says there were two crashes at Roswell…
I don’t think we’ve ever written about Roswell on our blog, even though we’ve put up quite a few UFO-related stories. It’s probably because Roswell is so well known. It’s also a case where many of the long-time UFO researchers say the story has been conflated into something they say it never was – the crash of an alien craft. Meanwhile, if there’s any case that the public knows about, it’s Roswell and there’s widespread belief that something very mysterious happened there.
Now comes Lt. Col. Richard French, a retired air force pilot, who says there was not one crash, but two near Roswell in 1947. He claims the first UFO was hit with an electronic pulse-type weapon. All the controls failed and it crashed. The second crash was that of a similar alien vessel that was on a rescue mission for the first one.
The problem with the story is that the type of weapons described didn’t exist at the time. Or did they, and we didn’t know?
The strange synchro here relates to an MIB story that appeared in Operation Trojan Horse, a 1970 UFO book by John Keel. A woman in Owatonna, Minnesota, who had a UFO experience accompanied by a number of paranormal incidents, was approached by a mysterious stranger, who called himself Major Richard French. He was wearing crisp new clothes, not a uniform. She was told not to talk it to anyone about her experience.
Was it the same person? If so, then French’s story about being a debunker takes on more veracity, and with it the scenario about Roswell.
