Flying Saucers And The Cosmic Watergate

Moose Jaw Times Herald

Moose Javians are interested in flying saucers.

Quite a few people filed into the Mae Wilson Theatre on Saturday
night for An Evening With Stanton T. Friedman, a nuclear
physyicist delivering his lecture Flying Saucers ARE Real.

"There’s no way to tell you everything you ever wanted to know
about flying saucers in one lecture or ten lectures," Friedman

Friedman is a self-described UFologist. For all the time he has
spent researching flying saucers, he has spent almost as much in
battle with the "noisy negativists" who dismiss everything out
of hand.

He spent the bulk of his presentation on the famous Roswell

A rancher found wreckage of an unidentifiable craft in his
field. The military swiftly sent in men to retrieve the
wreckage. Maj. Jesse Marcel investigated the site, and described
metals that were unheard of: small beams that were incredibly
light but couldn’t be broken by hand, and metal that could be
bent and then reform into its original shape. Marcel and the
others who recovered the wreckage were silenced by their

The wreckage was explained as a weather balloon, which contains
nothing similar to the wreckage nor any flight patterns similar
to what was witnessed before the crash.

There were two reports of bodies found: small, grey, with
spindly limbs. These were explained as crash-test dummies (which
are made to look human).

He discussed another incident where a small craft was seen
landing. The soil that it imprinted was studied, and discovered
to be sterile and non-absorbant.

Many studies have been done into flying saucers. The largest
ever was Project Blue Book. It concluded that there were only 3
per cent of UFO sightings that were not identified, and only
because of insufficient data. However, within the actual report,
the figures put unknown sightings at 21.3 per cent, and list
insufficient data in another category.

Friedman sought after the hundreds of UFO documents in the
possession of the CIA and NSA, and had to take them to court
before they would admit they had them. He eventually go the
documents, though... 90 per cent whited out.

He also talked about the elusive Operation Majestic 12, a top
secret group reporting to President Truman, which remains as
mysterious today as in 1947.

There are many remaining mysteries, but Stanton Friedman shows
no signs of slowing down.
