Does the government want you to believe in crashed UFOs?

According to Nick Redfern, the disquieting answer is "yes."

Jacques Vallee's book Revelations is a real eye-opener in this regard. I finished that book thinking military intelligence spooks probably should have got some kind of royalties from the X-Files! Also, it's interesting to consider how instrumental William Moore was in reawakening public interest in Roswell, considering his acknowlegded involvement in spreading disinformation elsewhere.

Always thought the Roswell Cottage Industry was built on a foundation of hot air, not fact. Wouldn't it be fun if it were true? But, it was just an intelligence con. Some day the truth eventually will be revealed and Roswellians will be seen sporting egg all over their faces (of course, they'll insist the truth is another government misdirectiton).

Vallee's "Revelations" and Greg Bishop's "Project Beta" are the best books on the disinformation angle that I've read. There's enough material for a dozen more.


"Roswell" ceased to be a UFO case a long time ago; it's now a bona-fied belief system. As such, it's immune to factual arguments.

Oh come now Mac. Roswell is not and will never be a cut and dry story. You of all people should know that. It's one damn confusing story.

It's incredibly confusing. I'm not proclaiming that Roswell was staged, merely reasserting Redfern's thesis that the "crashed UFO" literature includes several cases that strongly suggest disinformation.
