FBI Releases Memo that "Proves" Aliens Crashed at Roswell

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has released a pile of documents into a new online archive referred to as The Vault.  One of these documents is rather shocking.

In 1950, Guy Hottel was the Special Agent in charge of the Washington field office.  He sent the following memo to the FBI director. I’ve zoomed in so you can clearly read what this says:


You think I made this up?  See the document for yourself on the FBI.gov site.


What this memo seems to say is that Saucers were recovered in Roswell.  Not weather ballons…. not secret military craft.  Flying Saucers.  Hell, the subject line of the memo is RE: Flying Saucers!

The most extraordinary claim in the memo is that there were three occupants in each craft and it goes on to describe them as “of human shape, but only 3ft tall”.  They are described as wearing metalic clothing of a very fine texture.  Hmmmm, remind you of anything?

What I also find intriguing is that here we find an explanation as to why the crafts crashed.  The memo speculates that the high powered radar in the area “interfered with the controlling mechanism of the saucers.”

So, what the heck are we to make of this?  Is THIS disclosure? Am I perhaps misunderstanding something here? Or is there something more sinister afoot, like a precursor to something akin to Project Blue Beam?

Please keep the discussion going in the comments below. I’d love to hear your theories.  I read each and every comment.
