Subject: Re: The Roswell Incident - The True Story - Redfern

Having written extensively about Roswell myself, I hate to have
to say this, but... I see no hope of Roswell _ever_ being
_conclusively_ resolved to the satisfaction of everyone.

Why? Simple: it doesn't matter in the slightest how many
scientists get involved, or which person puts up money to make
good quality TV documentaries, etc. The problem is that nearly
everyone involved personally in the Roswell affair is now dead -
it will, after all, be 60 years old this July. Ten or fifteen
years from now, probably _all_ the players _will_ be dead.

On top of that, the official story is that _no_ files exist on
Roswell - anywhere, aside from one or two things like the old
FBI memo, the Ramey document, etc., and that's it.

So, in other words, I don't see how we can solve Roswell when
the players are gone, and we have no files to review. I strongly
suspect (although I hate to have to admit because it almost
sounds defeatist - but it's meant specifically from a realist
perspective), that when everyone really _is_ gone, and _no_
files ever come to light, Roswell will grind to a complete halt
(in terms of being able to take it further), with some people in
this camp, and other people in that camp. And that is where it
will stay. Forever.

The case is unsolved to where we can say with total certainty
what did or did not happen. And the more time that passes
(indeed, too much time may have already passed), the less chance
there is of ever finding the truth. I have _no_ faith, at all,
in the idea that any government agency or president will ever
come clean on Roswell or the larger UFO issue. Why should they,
after years of denial?

The only chance I see of solving the case to the point where we
can say something definitive - rather than just having witness
memories that point in this direction or that direction - is if
(a) something is found in an archive that was declassified in
error; (b) someone leaks something definitive and undeniable; or
(c) some old-timer (or their family) has something in their
possession from the old days that definitively resolves it all.

Last year at my blog, I discussed these specific issues and
problems, and raised parallels between Roswell research and Jack
the Ripper research, and the many similarities and problems
facing researchers of both issues, and how both cases may
already be at stalemate in terms of solving them for the reasons
cited above.
