Many skeptics ask, "If the government DOES know something about aliens and UFOs, why, and how, do they keep it secret from everyone else?"
Col. Corso's book gives a sober and convincing explanation for this. Rather than giving a broad overview, however, he wisely sticks to a specific description of his own hands-on experience and how he did the job he was asked to do. Specifically, as head of the Army's Foreign Technology Desk in the Pentagon, Corso alleges he was in charge of "getting something useful" out of alien artifacts collected from the Roswell UFO crash in 1947.
Corso was faced with a challenge: How do you gather funding and personnel (many of whom are low-ranking) for a US Army R&D project on the Roswell UFO artifacts, while using "normal," visible administrative channels, and keep it a secret from other branches of the government and even many of the individuals directly involved?
In describing how he faced that challenge, Corso gives a thorough account of not only the alien technology he says was discovered at Roswell, but the bureaucratic processes involved in researching it and putting it to use. He describes how artifacts from Roswell gave earthly science a jumpstart on the integrated circuit chip, the laser, and a host of other technologies, and how these technologies were "seeded" outside the military to eventually better life for the public.Read more ›
So what exactly is the story? Well, it isn't the `UFO agenda' smoking gun the title had me expecting. In fact, it isn't at all what I expected. Whereas I thought the book might be about actual `EBE's'(extraterrestrial biological entities), where they may have come from or what they might be doing here, the book hardly touches on any of that. What it does touch on is how Col. Corso, from his post within the Army's Research & Development program in the early 1960's, went about farming out bits and pieces of technology from a crashed spacecraft found near Roswell in 1947, into ongoing Defense Department development programs. As he tells his story, it was put upon him not only to think up different weapons applications for each little piece of crash wreckage he had at his disposal, but to also put them in the hands of the right contractor, working on the right projects, while at the same time not letting anyone know where the technology was coming from.Read more ›
I for one do not doubt that this whole book might be based on truth. Basically the author recounts how he got a filing cabinet full of information that he had to 'farm out' to companies. The information? technology that was retrieved from a downed space craft (UFO) that crashed in Roswell. The author recounts how he helped share this information with others so that they could use it to increase our technology.
