Neither The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Economist or NPR have reported it, but intrepid FoxNews.com has an article this morning on something I heard on Coast to Coast Saturday night. The story concerns Lt. Walter Haut, who was the Army public relations officer at the Roswell Army Air Field 60 years ago.
Haut issued two press releases within 24 hours in the first week of July 1947. The first announced the recovery of a "flying disc" and the second corrected the first, saying that the flying disc was actually a weather balloon. As reported on Coast to Coast, Haut died in 2005 but left a sworn affidavit to be opened after his death. In the affidavit Haut describes the cover-up operation and claims to have seen alien bodies.
Here's the FoxNews story.
Here's the website of the researcher I heard interviewed on the radio show.
There's a Die Hard post coming soon, Matt, I swear.
