I think Easley, an honorable man, told me all that he felt he
could say without compromising his integrity. He was very
careful about what he would say and wouldn't say. There is no
way that he would have said as much as he did had he felt he was
violating his oath and responsibilities as an officer.

And the choice of the word "confessed" implies something that
I'm sure you didn't mean. He said that they held Brazel in the
guest house but that was not a confession.

This is what Saunders wrote and signed, on the fly leaf to The
About The UFO Crash At Roswell, "Here's the truth and I still
haven't told anybody anything!"

The heading of the page is "Damage Control" and it says...

"Files were altered. So were personal records, along with
assignments and various codings and code words. Changing serial
numbers ensured that those searching later would not be able to
locate those who were involved in the recovery. Individuals were
brought into Roswell from Alamogordo, Albuquerque, and Los
Alamos. The MPs were a special unit constructed of military
police elements from Kirtland, Alamogordo and Roswell. If the
men didn't know one another, or were separated after the event,
they would be unable to compare notes, and that would make the
secret easier to keep.

After the impact site was cleaned, the soldiers debriefed, and
the bodies and the craft removed, silence fell. It would not be
broken for almost forty-five years."

I have the letter, handwritten, in which one of Saunder's
children wrote to me, "At one point he bragged to me about how
well he had covered the 'paper trail' associated with the clean

So Saunders, in a very limited way, corroborated much of the
crash and the cover up. It means that another member of
Blanchard's staff was telling us about the crash and the
recovery... but in a very limited way, and it was told, not to
UFO researchers, but to close friends and family. Not exactly
the same was a long statement to be released after his death.

Still, this is important because of the source and the limited
documentation associated with it (mainly the proof that Saunders
was in Roswell at the time and that he was on the primary staff,
and his handwritten note about the events of July 1947).
