Has Roswell truth been hiding in plain sight?

Published: 26 May 2017


A UFO researcher claims he may have unlocked the secret behind the alleged Roswell cover-up, using modern imaging technology to decipher a top-secret US government memo.

In July 1947, New Mexico residents reported lights in the sky followed by a strange disc-like craft crashing into the Roswell desert. 

US authorities initially released a statement confirming a crashed flying saucer, but the statement was soon retracted, followed the next day by an explanation claiming an Air Force ‘weather balloon’ had crashed.

The alleged cover-up sparked alien and UFO believers’ biggest conspiracy theory to date.

Now, one researcher says he has ‘proof’ the US government covered up proof of alien life.

David Rudiak says he’s enhanced a black-and-white photo taken of General Roger Ramey at Fort Worth Army Air Field in the days after the crash.  The General is seen holding a ‘top secret memo’ in his hand as he looks over the alleged weather balloon wreckage.

Rudiak says he now can read 80 percent of the document, and it confirms there were “crash victims” and the craft was in fact a “disc.”

Many conspiracy theorists believe a flying saucer carrying alien beings crashed into the desert, and the US military took the bodies of the aliens on board and the wreckage of the craft back to the top-secret Area 51 military base.

Rudiak claims part of General Ramey’s memo reads, “and the victims of the wreck,” followed by, “in the ‘disc’ they will ship.”


Conspiracy theorists believe the reference to the ‘disc’ confirms the existence of a flying saucer, and the ‘victims’ were the aliens on board.

An official inquiry into the alleged cover up was launched in the mid-1990s, and the US Air Force confirmed the ‘weather balloon’ explanation was, in fact, a ruse.

But they say the explanation was covering up a top-secret project using military aircraft to monitor Russia’s nuclear testing, and is entirely unrelated to extra-terrestrials.

“At least this effort caused the Air Force to acknowledge that the crashed vehicle was no weather balloon,” Congressmen Steve Schiff, who launched the inquiry, said as the findings were released. 

“That explanation never fit the fact of high military security used at the time.”

The inquiry found that many documents and communications were destroyed without authorisation after the incident, making it unlikely the truth would ever come out.

It also discounted the photograph researcher Rudiak claims to have enhanced, saying state-of-the-art technology couldn’t make it clear enough to read. 

Not all analysts agree with Rudiak’s decryption of the document, and an anonymous UFO enthusiast is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who can fully decipher it.
