What happened at Roswell 65 years ago? It may be a conspiracy theorist’s greatest mystery. Now, one former CIA agent says he has information that could solve it.
On July 8th, 1947, most reports can agree, something landed in Roswell, New Mexico. At first the government said it was a “flying disc” but they quickly changed their story the next day to a “weather balloon.”
For a few years everyone bought that response, but eventually people started asking questions. Some say it was Stalin sending a message to the U.S. as the Cold War kicked off in earnest. Others say that Roswell was the point of first contact between human beings and extraterrestrials. Still others maintain that it really was just a weather balloon. Now, Ex-CIA agent Chase Brandon says he knows what really happened.
“It was not a damn weather balloon,” Brandon toldthe Huffington Post, “it was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet.” Brandon, a 35-year agency veteran, served as a covert agent involved in international terrorism, counterinsurgency, global narcotics trafficking and weapons smuggling, and spent 10 years as the agency’s first entertainment and publication industries liaison.
