Roswell & The CIA

It still doesn’t add up

"Since Going Public in June, He’s Received Emails From Other CIA Retirees Who Claimed to Have Seen the Roswell Box as Well"

      Nearly two months after announcing on “Coast To Coast AM” radio that he’d seen proof of the Roswell UFO crash/recovery languishing in the CIA’s historical archives, retired prominent agent Chase Brandon continues to promote the story. He was at it again early Monday morning (EDT) on Don Ecker’s “Dark Matters” podcast.

In this latest update, we learn that Brandon has not been contacted or personally reprimanded by his former employer, despite the CIA having issued an official rebuke in July (“Our historians have found nothing in the Agency’s holdings to corroborate Mr. Brandon’s specific claims”). Brandon actually defended the Agency he so clearly loves by saying its position is entirely plausible. The last time he visited what had once been the CIA’s Historical Intelligence Collection, the facility had been completely overhauled since 1998-99, when he discovered the cardboard box marked “Roswell.” All those dusty antiquities and artifacts had been relocated to make room for 21st-century upgrades and digitization.

“I have no idea where it went,” said Brandon, who added the entire inventory back then was declassified to anyone who worked for the Agency. “Unless somebody knew where it went, I don’t see how anybody could check what was in there.”

Well yeah, no reasonable person should expect the CIA to know what it did with anything in its own archives. And the dolly-jockeys who physically relocated the material to wherever — they were probably minimum-wage Manpower winos for whom a box labeled “Roswell” would mean absolutely bupkis. They probably just tossed it out with the Coke bottles.

Brandon said he didn’t share his news about The Discovery of A Lifetime with colleagues because “we operate on a need-to-know basis.” Ecker responded, “You just said it wasn’t classified.” Brandon said, well, it was actually more like personal self-policing, since professing an interest in UFOs would mean “you’re looney as a $3 bill.”

On the other hand, Brandon said that since going public in June, he’s received emails from other CIA retirees who claimed to have seen the Roswell box as well. On the other hand (how many hands are we allowed?), Brandon maintains the Agency can’t be accused of covering up Roswell because Roswell occurred in July of ‘47 and the CIA wasn’t formed until September.

De Void has sent queries to Bill Clinton and former administration deputies Webb Hubbell and John Podesta to see how they’d handle this revelation were they still calling the shots in the White House. The Clintons went looking for exactly what Brandon claims to have found and struck out. It’s difficult to believe they wouldn’t want an audience with the discoverer of the elusive holy grail.

Btw, heads up — Ecker will make another pass at Brandon on tonight at “Dark Matters.”
