FWIW as I read it, it's _not_ the cover story but a strong hint
as to what _actually_ happend that evening.

It does _totally_ support the "Cover Story" scenario  because of
the facts given being  _totally_ out of place in the timeline in
view of what was else being _fed_ to the news media that night.

This _URGENT_ teletype was sent out at 6.17pm FW time YET at
_5.30pm_ FW time, 45mins _before_, Maj Kirton of the the
Intellegence Office of the FWAAF was informing a reporter for
the Dallas Morning News that the debris was that of a High
Altitude Weather Balloon, nothing to make a fuss over, no need
to fly it on to WF, end of story. Please also note this was 1hr
_before_ Irving Newton's ID of the debris was sent out on the AP
wire (6.30pm FW) AND 30 mins _before_ Newton even came ON
DUTY(6.00pm FW).

To cap it all Kirton was identified as the AF contact who gave
the information in the teletype to the FBI Dallas office,
presumably shortly before the teletype was sent, after all it
was marked URGENT, and I doubt the FBI would sit on this info
for very long. So, 5.30pm the debris was a mundane Weather
Balloon for the press, and stopping at Fort Worth AAF yet for
the FBI at aprox 6.00pm AND reported by the self same Maj Kirton
"telephonic conversation" with the techie's at WF "had not borne
out that belief" ie, it _wasn't_ 'mundane debris' and it _was_
being flown on to Wright Field!. Yet at 6.30pm on the AP Wire,
Irving Newton says again it'a a mundane Weather Balloon. Later
that evening, radio reporter Joe Wilson in Chicago stated he had
spoken shortly before the broadcast with officials at Wright
Field and they were _still_ _awaiting_ the debris arrival.
Perhaps FWAAF hadn't told them it was just a weather balloon and
wouldn't be coming?.

Thomas Dubose plainly stated the Weather Balloon story was a
cover given under order of Gen McMullen to "get the press off
the AF's back", this single piece of evidence, the FBI teletype,
when viewed in context with all the other information coming out
of the AF for public consumtion seems clearly to say that is
_exactly_ what happened.

There's lots'a holes in the Fort Worth end of Roswell and yet
still more to come out.

Neil.
