Is Mainstream Media Looking the Other Way? Source: www.dailygalaxy.com/
Fairly old article which mentions Lieutenant Walter Haut who was the public relations officer at the base (Roswell incident) in 1947
and was the man who issued the original and subsequent press releases
after the crash on the orders of the base commander, Colonel
William Blanchard. Excerpt: "His affidavit also asserted that the “weather balloon”
claim was a cover story and that the real object had been recovered
by the military and stored in a hangar. He described seeing not just
the craft, but alien bodies as well. Haut's affidavit mentions a high-level
meeting he attended with base commander Col William Blanchard and the
Commander of the Eighth Army Air Force, General Roger Ramey.
states that at this meeting, pieces of wreckage were handed around for
participants to touch, with nobody able to identify the material. His
testimony matches the key witness, Major Jesse Marcel’s testimony,
the intelligence officer who had gone to the ranch to recover the wreckage.
He described the metal as being wafer thin but incredibly tough, and
that it was as light as balsa wood, but couldn't be cut or burned." http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2007/10/the-et-question.html
