Following the United Kingdom’s declassified UFO reports, the FBI has released files on both the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico incident and the supposed organization that arose from said incident, MAJESTIC-12. The Roswell document is a simple memo from special agent in charge, Guy Hottel, dated March 22, 1950, 3 years after the 1947 incident, detailing an Air Force investigator receiving reports of 3 flying saucers and their pilots. The three objects were believed to be simple weather balloons with radar reflectors, and the investigation went no further, as noted at the bottom of the report.
The second document involves a supposed conspiracy organization known as MAJESTIC-12, which was formed in 1947 by President Truman to recover and investigate UFOs. The document, which was received by two separate FBI offices in 1988, lists the twelve members of the OPERATION MAJESTIC-12 group and details several encounters and recoveries of alien spacecraft from 1947 to 1950, including a sighting in Washington state, the 1947 Roswell crash, and a crashed object in Texas. However, following an Air Force investigation, the memo was determined to be falsified and labeled BOGUS, seemingly squashing the rumors of the elusive government UFO hunters.
So has the truth finally been revealed, was Roswell really just nothing but weather balloons? Is MAJESTIC-12 just an elaborate hoax by some unknown pranksters? Or is it all disinformation, something to keep the masses happy at night? One never knows.
